It came as no surprise to me when Shelton Gibson & Skyler Howard were cut from their NFL teams early. I was not a fan of either when they played at WVU. I always felt Howard may find success in the NFL as a running back, for I thiught it he was much better running the ball than Shell.

I am not surprised that Shelton Gibson is struggling catching passes in the NFL. While Gibson could catch balls going away from him, he struggled catching balls coming at him. Holgorson commented on Gibson's in ability to catch passes coming at him. Look for Gibson's NFL dreams to end soon.

With anquan boldin's retirement, dakeil shorts has a good chance of making the team.

We will see Shorts playing for the Bills.

Shelton Gibson has yet to catch a pass. He is done.

Also Darrien Howard was cut early on from the Cardinals. This was a surprise, for I felt he had a shot at making it.

I was not surprised to see Skyler Howard and Russel Shell cut early.

The Eagles have five for now, including Shelton Gibson, Rasul Douglas, and Orlosky playing guard.
Also, incumbents Wendell Smallwood and Najee Goode.

Ya it's not looking good for him.  I watched some of the last Eagles game and they have roughly 9 receivers fighting for 5/6 openings.  4 were locks to make it.  With Gibson struggling all fall and in the preseason I would doubt he makes it.  Probably end up on a practice squad though.

Gibson may not get cut. He could end up on the practice squad. There is no way will we see him in a game this season.

I agree with you there.  Barring a bunch of injuries anyway and even then I could see the signing a veteran instead of activating him.
