This week marks the unofficial beginning of the NFL's dead period of the offseason. Each team has finished up their minicamps and now players get to take a six week vacation before training camps start back. Typically during this period, team's do very little in the way of roster transactions until the start of camp.
Here is a look at the few moves that took place this week, plus my thoughts down below:
- Cut WR J.J. Worton.
- Cut LB Matt Wells.
- Cut OG Dominick Jackson.
New Orleans Saints
- Signed DE C.J. Wilson.
- Signed LB Brandon Johnson.
- Cut K Shaun Suisham.
- The Steelers released Suisham this week after he failed his physical. His release reminds me how fortunate the Seattle is for having a healthy and reliable kicker in Steven Hauschka.
- This is the dullest part of the NFL offseason every year and these six weeks before training camps always seem to be the longest six weeks of the year. I cannot wait for Seahawks football to pick back up.
- Season 6 of Game of Thrones concluded last night, and I've yet to see it, so I have spent all day avoiding spoilers. That also makes me wonder: When is the appropriate time for it to be ok to spoil something? I say three days after it is released. Let me know what you think the appropriate time is in the comments below.
