The Oakland Raiders’ Turk had to tell veteran quarterback Jeff Garcia, “Coach needs to see you and bring your playbook”
Every team has that member of their coaching staff that no one wants to see on Cut Down Day. The Turk – HBO’s Hard Knocks has highlighted Bengals coach Jim Lippincott — came around the NFL at 6:00 PM on Sept. 5, reducing rosters to the regular season limit of 53 players.
The last cuts are always the toughest for NFL teams as many had to let go as many as 22 players getting to the regular season limit from the Sept. 1 limit of 75.
Some of the bigger players getting their walking papers were Oakland Raiders backup QB Jeff Garcia, New England Patriots backup QB Andrew Walter, Super Bowl hero New York Giants WR David Tyree, former Boise State star Ian Johnson (Minnesota Vikings), Kansas City Chiefs LB Zach Thomas, and Buffalo Bills RB Dominic Rhodes.
Also Rams defensive lineman Adam Carriker was placed on injured reserve for the year after injuring his shoulder in the team’s preseason finale.
One player who was not cut was Philadelphia Eagles suspended reserve quarterback Michael Vick. The Eagles decided to keep Vick on the “Exempt” list until he is eligible to come off the list for Week Three of the NFL regular season.
With the Arena Football League (AFL) no more and the Canadian Football League (CFL) well underway, the UFL—a new football league starting this fall—maybe the only option left for some of the players.
