According to reports we may see some Surprise cuts this summer



ESPN's rumor section is now showing that we could see Antwan Odom traded this Summer.  It says that since drafting both Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins that we may see a veteran cut or traded.  it also mentions that Robert Geathers is a possibility here.  I like the depth we have and the possibilities here.  Especially if Michael Johnson is going to see some time at SAM.  I like the depth we have accumulated.  It protects us against injuries and it also allows are Defensive to stay fresh throughout the game. 

I believe you have to be an insider

Cincinnati Bengals have only kept eight defensive linemen on the roster in the past, and with the drafting of Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins in April, there might be some veterans out of a job, including Odom and Robert Geathers. Reedy writes, "if either got injured or was outplayed, one of them could be traded or released."

Given that Odom was able to pile up 8.0 sacks over the first five games before being injured in the sixth, we'd expect quite a few teams to come calling if he did become available.

So lets say that we do decide to put Odom on the trading block, what should we get for him?  Should we trade him?  If so does Dunlap have the inside shot to start?  I want to see what everyone else thinks about this.  I would only trade him if we could get a pretty good pick out of him or a player that could contribute at another position.  For instance a backup QB.  Anyway let me see what eveyone else's opinion is on this.  I would just assume keep him unless we get something really good in return.  I like the depth we have.  I also wouldn't be surprised if we see surprise cuts at other positions. Anyone else think that we could see surprise cuts?
