What I do think will happen is 3-4 cuts to make us a little more room for the 1-2 starting caliber FA we may desire and our draft class.
Those players that would/could be cut fall in this order:
1: Doug Free (Jerry speaking on Free as an OG tells you he's obviously not fulfilling it as a RT. We know Free is not a guard and I'm pretty certain Callahan would only entertain trying a looksie there because Jerry spent a good chunk of change on Free. I think it's smoke and mirrors to not make it as obvious what we have to go after in the 1st 2 rounds or FA, an impacting guard and a contending RT to start or swing once Free is cut.)
2: Dan Connor (If he does not take the pay cut)
[View Full Quote]3: Gerald Sensabaugh (Sounds like Church is a sure fire starter in this staffs eyes, doesn't sound like Sensy is Monte's guy)
4: Marcus Spears (If Marinelli likes him as our run stopping DT in the rotation he is kept and or maybe asked to take a pay cut since Lissemore is signed up and could also be that guy)
I think the team's planning on keeping Sensabaugh another year. People ran with the speculation that we might be looking to replace him b/c Steven Jones mentioned the other two guys only in an interview, but I believe he was taking it as a given that Sensy would fill the one position and that either Church or Johnson would be an option for the second.
Spears is a tough case, because it'd actually cost us money to cut him this year (~100k, iirc). At the same time, there's really not much of a role for him in this defense anymore.
When asked whether Jason Garrett is the right head coach for this team: "I don't think there is anyone else that could. I think he is an unbelievable coach. We've responded to him and he has made us better football players, better people. If you watch us I think we play with a certain relentless spirit." --Sean Lee
