The 5 O'Clock Club: It’s cut-down day!

New, comments

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere...

The 5 o’clock club aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.

Team rosters have to be cut from 90 to 53 players by this afternoon.

The 10-man practice squad will be formed after the waiver process has run its course.

That, of course, won’t be the end of things. There is typically a fair bit of shuffling at the bottom of the roster for a few days as teams add players released from other teams, and then — to make room on the roster — release players who initially survived the cut on 1 & 2 September.

It should be a crazy day of Redskins tweets, rumors, news — and a few surprises.

What roster moves —Redskins or around the league — have surprised you?
