Today can be the single best or worst day for a young player trying to realize their dream of playing the NFL.
Roster cuts are due today, as teams work to get their roster under the 53-man limit by 4 PM Eastern Time.
Yesterday the Bears cut 5 of the 22 players necessary to get under that limit, and with the tweet from Peggy Kusinski yesterday that the Bears may be using their Injured Reserve/Designation to Return on Marquess Wilson once cuts are over and they can bring a player back, one of those players may have a second life.
We'll track today's cuts for you as we make our way to the 53. Yesterday, the Bears parted ways with Jordan Lynch, Rob Turner, Jeron Mastrud, Dennis Roland and Armanti Edwards. Who will be the seventeen players next?
Apparently that news is out already, as Brad Biggs reports Taylor Boggs and Marcus Trice will be waived.

#Bears are going to place C Taylor Boggs on waivers. He is a strong possibility to return to the practice squad.— Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) August 30, 2014
So how does that impact the Cut Table? Here's the table listing the cuts currently made.
This is your Open Thread to discuss today's cuts as we work down to 53. If there's a surprise cut, we'll have an independent post up on it with some additional thoughts.
