This means initially that undrafted safety Tony Jefferson has made it, and receivers Jaron Brown and Kerry Taylor seem to have made the cut.

The decision on quarterback Ryan Lindley has not yet been made, nor what the team will do with tight end Jeff King.

Rachal's cut is perhaps a surprise, but Mike Gibson, who seems to have made the team for now, can play guard and center. Verstility are key in the OL depth.

Special teams standout Jonathon Amaya was let go. That is a bit of a surprise personally. I thought he was a lock because of that.
