In Response to The most likely familiar names to be cut who were on the roster last year.
Just to start the discussion, here are a few possibilities. Aiken Slater Wheatley Crable Brace Woods Alexander BenJarvis Green-Ellis Morris Ohrnberger

Woods - one dimensional proven on ST but has not stepped up as an everydown player as of yet and he has had the time.
Alexander - one dimensional as well... i cannot believe he has made the team the past two years... he must be a great practice player when he is not hurt.
Crable - why waste our time on a player this fragile... even if he becomes a valuable asset he is still one play away from the IR again... too much risk, little reward and A LOT of remorse... what if he is great and gets hurt again??? We'll never get over it!
Wheatley - too frail for my liking, he had three surgeries on that wrist in college and broke it again his rookie year... unfortunately I can see a UFA from the past like ST standout Kyle Arrington beating him out for the fifth corner spot behind Wilhite and McCourty.
Slater - this guy played all of 2009 with a hyperextension of the elbow so he has all the grit in the world so he may make it... I think it is a toss up Slater Vs. Aiken as ST captain and right now on smarts and grit alone i am going with Slater because he is a UCLA grad, plays Safety, WR and ST.
Ohrnberger; Scar made BB trade back into the fourth to select this player a little over a year ago and he was IR'd last year so there is no way he will be cut. If the jury is still out at the end of camp maybe he will be pup'd before they make a late season attempt to sneak him onto the practice squad.
Brace; he may not be what we thought he was (Vinces replacement) and he may not live up to who he may eventually be called on to replace NOW @ DE (Seymour) but he is not cut material... If anything he is good trade bait to a 4-3 team that is old up front.
Green Ellis; most affordable, youngest, and hardest runner in the stable...
