    Unless there is a surprise player going on IR, they will have to cut somebody, or demote a rookie or second year guy to the practice squad and cut one of the PS guys to make room. I am pretty sure you can't hide someone with 7 years in the league on the practice squad. I will be looking for a press release sometime tomorrow. In AJ we trust!

    If those are the choices...and they probably are, I would cut Pinnock. He is injured, older, and more expensive than his likely replacement Tolbert. The other thought would be that need some depth in the O-line more than we need an additional running back / fullback.

    ...Of course, I have been horribly wrong before!

    From ESPN
    2008 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
    Grade: 65 | Key
    Alert: None

    Comment: Forney plays tough and aggressive and has good functional strength, quickness and body control. He is initially quick and can bring his feet to create movement in the running game. Does a good job working for leverage while providing leg drive. Is effective with his angles into contact and has strength on contact with good effort to finish. Gives good mesh and angles into double teams and enough strength to take over and sustain if the center leaves to make the climb. When he leaves to climb he is athletic enough and has good enough body control to make adjustments in space. Gives good effort in space, showing the ability to chop defenders in space when he can't keep his feet or is making a tough adjustment. He does a good job with angle blocks and can seal running lanes quickly, walling off defenders with good balance. Has good balance to set and slide in pass protection, and while he will carry his hands low at times he has good strength to punch and shock defenders. He has adequate overall foot quickness but often relies on upper-body strength to lock on if his feet are late. Quick counter moves and good change of direction rusher can get him off-balance and over-extended.
