The Washington Redskins hit the cut-the-ex-Steeler trifecta on cut day, releasing FFWP (formerly fast Willie Parker), FFLF (former fan least favorite Tyrone Carter) and OFFLF (other former fan least favorite, Carey Davis).
Willie Parker was a real pro who illustrates the brutally short life of an NFL running back. The Redskins kept Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson, 2nd year undrafted Villanova RB Darrel Young and undrafted LSU free agent Keiland Williams.
And I take this opportunity to ask how, with all the Native-American related name changes of the past 20 years, how do the Redskins of all possible names, abide? Does Daniel Snyder have Sri Lankan factories belching genetically engineered evil mojo that causes us not to notice?
The Eagles cut A. Q. Shipley. Not looking good at this point for the former Rimington Award winner.
Kendrick Clancy was released by the Saints. Good for Clancy to have made it 10 years in the NFL, quite an accomplishment.
The Chiefs cut former Panther, Tyler Palko.
Thanks to SteelerMessican for prompting the following: The Colts start their quest for the Super Bowl with Deshea Townsend on their roster. Townsend will be 35 on Wednesday. Townsend covering Ward in the AFC title game? Could happen. Surprisingly resilient Anthony Smith is the starting strong safety of the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to the team depth chart. He is still only 26.
