A couple of surprising last-minute cuts today. The Vikings got rid of receiver Bobby Wade, which is a bit odd considering that he just restructured his contract so he would be easier to fit on the roster. They're signing Greg Lewis to replace him, although I assume Lewis is more of a fourth receiver and special teams guy. The Rams also made a surprise move by slashing starting strongside linebacker Chris Draft. That means that David Vobora, Mr. Irrelevant 2008, will now be a starter in St. Louis. So much for irrelevancy -- between Vobora and Ryan Succop, Mr. Irrelevants are going to get some serious playing time this season. For those wondering: Yes, I'm doing yet another KUBIAK update, and yes, the Draft-for-Vobora shift would drop the Rams' defensive DVOA projection a little bit.
