Prisco's 2017 All-Cut Team: Brock Osweiler, weak offensive line join strong secondary
With NFL roster cuts wrapped up, the Browns lead the way with four players on our All-Cut Team
There have been some on Twitter this week saying that you could put together a decent team from the final NFL cuts this year.
There are two reasons why: quarterback and offensive line.
Good luck finding good players in either area that would help you compete. They just aren't there. Consider this: The starting quarterback on the All-Cut Team I put together from the final NFL cuts Saturday is none other than Brock Osweiler, who was cut by the Browns.
They paid him $16 million -- the salary he would have made if still on the team -- to go away. That tells you all you need to know. He's returning to the Broncos, but only because Paxton Lynch is hurt.
As far players on the offensive line, I scrambled to find a unit that could even come close to competing. There are some veterans on my list, but how much do they have left? There just aren't enough good ones in the league anymore.
So forget the talk this team could win a few games. It's a team that would be a 14-point underdog to the New York Jets, who might not win a game this season.
With that, here's the 2017 All-Cut team:
QB Brock Osweiler (Browns): The Osweiler era in Cleveland didn't last long, despite the early talk that he had a chance to start. He's on his way back to Denver where he started games in 2016.
TE Jace Amaro (Titans): This former second-round pick of the Jets has never lived up to the hype. He had three catches last season for the Titans and hasn't been the same player since suffering a torn labrum in 2015.
G John Greco (Browns): He has been a good starter in his time with the Browns, which is why his release surprised some. He will be playing elsewhere this season.
G Alex Boone (Vikings): He was signed as a major free agent in 2016, but he missed two games with injury last season and the Vikings obviously don't think he's worth the big deal they gave to him. They reportedly did ask him to take a pay cut, and he refused.
DT Quinton Dial (49ers): He has been a starter for the 49ers, but the change in schemes hurt his chances this summer. But he is a solid player for a team looking for depth up front.
OLB Antwione Williams (Lions): He appeared to be a starter at one point this summer, but he lost his job and then was cut. He has some ability.
CB Senquez Golden (Steelers): He spent his two seasons with the Steelers injured, but this second-round pick has some ability. He will likely get a look from another team.
CB Joe Haden (Browns): He's already been signed by the Steelers, which shows they think the Browns made a mistake. But Cleveland cut him for financial reasons as much as anything. He has been slowed by injuries the past two seasons, but the Steelers signed him the same day he was released.
S T.J. Ward (Broncos): Some people had to be shocked to see him on this list, but when word came last week he was being shopped in trade talks, it was almost inevitable. He's a good player who can help a team in need.
