    Re: Bret Meyer cut...

    Hope he was able to steal some towels or at least keep his jersey. Still, the vast majority of athletes never even get the opportunity to sniff a pro camp... I'm willing to bet he turns out as the biggest success of the class even if some others make a squad. He's a class individual and will do well at whatever he tackles.

    Re: Bret Meyer cut...

    I wonder what his major was. I think he would get decent job offers because of his proven attitude and ISU's credentials.

    Re: Bret Meyer cut...

    I wonder if he'll return to Iowa and try to get on the Barnstormers next season? Brannen's doing fine, but couldn't hurt to have a backup.

    Re: Bret Meyer cut...

    OK, I'm a little confused here. Why would he be cut already after being signed not that long ago. How could he have enough time to prove himself in that timeframe and/or why would the team sign him only to cut him not even 2 weeks later.

    Or is it politicing,,,,if that is even a word??

    Re: Bret Meyer cut...

    They had rookie minicamps over the weekend. Lots of roster changes are made after those, especially with the undrafted free agents.

    Re: Bret Meyer cut...

    Did he make any money on this? I hope he gets a look somewhere else, but probably not.

    Re: Bret Meyer cut...

    I figured that he'd have a hard time sticking since they drafted Colt Brennan, but I thought that he would at least get into camp in July and maybe see some time in a preseason game. Oh well, maybe he can try the CFL or AFL.

    Re: Bret Meyer cut...

    As some may recall, Sage started out with the 'Skins, he looked to be the best guy in camp and preseason - then they shipped him off to Miami.

    but Sage was drafted by Washington.

    Bret was just a $1000/week FA signing.

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not ... but yes, Sage was a 4th or 5th round pick.

    if you honestly thought that bret would make it into a pre season game, then you honestly have not watched must cyclone football the last two years..
