Today is the day many NFL players dread. Some are rewarded with a spot that can change a life and fulfill a dream. Others will be told news that will crush a dream they’ve had since they were young. Today is cut day.
The Tennessee Titans made some surprising cuts today.
Deontay Burnett – Burnett was having a nice camp and preseason, but ultimately got cut because he didn’t carve out a special teams role. If he did, I think he would’ve beaten out Cameron Batson for a spot on the 53. I expect him to be on the Titans practice squad if he clears twaivers.
Robert Spillane – Spillane became a fan favorite as the preseason went on because he just simply made play after play. Mike Vrabel let Spillane be one of the team captain’s on Thursday night against the Vikings. He should also be on the Titans practice squad if he clears waivers.
Nick Williams – Williams was the best wide receiver on the Titans during the preseason not named Taywan Taylor. He got hurt on a special teams play against Pittsburgh and when that happens to a bubble guy, chances of that guy sticking on the roster don’t look too good.
Julius Warmsley – Warmsley had a great camp and preseason. There were many times we saw him making plays game after game and thought “this guy has a real good shot at making this roster.” However, he got cut as the Titans favored Matt Dickerson over him.
Akrum Wadley – Wadley getting cut isn’t much of a surprise, but I liked his skill-set as the Titans third running back over David Fluellen. Wadley would almost certaintly be on the Titans practice squad if he makes it through waivers.
Now the roster isn’t set in stone just yet. Jon Robinson might make a move for another pass ruisher since Harold Landy and Derrick Morgan don’t look too likely to play in week 1, maybe even beyond that. So stay tuned for what Robinson is going to do because I guarantee he isn’t done.
Here is the list of all the players cut from the Titans roster:
