Egnew won't get cut because of the high drafting, although he hasn't shown anything... And I think Gates sticks until the next round of cuts. He actually might make the team because he's the only fast wr on the roster pretty much.
I really hope Gates isnt cut, even though he deserves to be cut. We need to give this kid time to develop and his speed is just something you cant ignore. All he needs is that 1 breakout game where he gets his cofidence up and now that he has a better QB he might just be able to become our Torrey Smith/Mike Wallace type player (no, im not comparing him to them). Egnew will not be cut just because of his draft status, and I do see a surprise cut coming soon. I expect a WR being brought in before preseason game 4.
All of your 4th string and perhaps some of the 3rd string players will be cut after tonight's game. Those players should be those 4th quarter guy's we've all seen over the 1st 2 pre-season games. Terrel Johnson, Cook, Feinga, and BJ Cunningham to name a few.
