    You think when he was notified, he said "What!?! Who's writing this script!?!"

      I would imagine someone in the locker room was the recipient of an F-5 once this news broke.

        ESPNews reports the Minnesota Vikings have released DL Brock Lesnar.
        So, Wraith in your opinion, what's his next move? Do you think he wants to try to play somewhere other than Minnesota or does he go running back to Vince McMahon's open arms?

          I heard he's up for the role of Puck in an Off-Broadway production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

            I will tell you this. (this is honest)

            When Mike Tice told him, Lesner gave Tice a big hug, and thanked him for the opportunity. Word had it Tice and a tear in his eye. Tice then went on to tell him that if another team does not pick him up he would be interested in having Brock play for him in NFL Europe. Tice feels the only thing the guy is lacking is live snaps and he can't get that on a practice squad.

              Well, that's promising. There are worse fates than making an NFLE team. Not to mention that should give some more exposure to the Europe game.

                That's great he made as much progress as he did. Going to NFLEL would be great for live action experience.

                However, one problem with NFLEL is many guys get tired after that season and coming into training camp.

                Good luck to him, nice to see it wasn't a PR stint.

                  Renaldo Wynn to be released
                  by tomahawk247
                  Renaldo Wynn is to be released along with a whole host of Redskin players. He could be a very solid starter opposite Leonard Little, and he played very well for Washington last year. He might be quite cheap as well.

                  Since the obvious happened with KW being released, why hasn't Duncan been released?
                  by adarian_too
                  OK. Releasing KW "saves money." It became obvious over time that the FO woulldn't support bringing back KW. Well, what is up with the fact that Jamie Duncan hasn't been released?

                  It is after June 1st, so the salary cap isn't an issue. Duncan had his 2nd chance last year. It should be "obvious" too that Duncan has been dead weight. If the FO thinks depth is an issue, then they can go out and get Trotter or Gilden.

                  In fact, despite the big contract, Trotter's didn't have much of an off year last year. He had 115 solos/assisted tackles. (His high is only 122, 120, & 115 with Phil). He had 2 forced fumbles which equaled his career high. And he had 1 interception which equalled or exceeded four of his 6 seasons.

                  This "obviously" would help the Rams at LB even if Duncan isn't released - which frankly boggles the mind why it hasn't happened yet. Trotter's release puts him in poorer bargaining position then when he originally signed with Wash. so salary cap issues should be navigatable.

                  Snyder didn't know what he was doing in acquiring Candidate and he also, I submit, didn't know what he was doing in releasing Trotter.

                  I'd like a really cogent reason from the FO why they don't release Duncan and pick up Trotter.
