Former Huskies Brown, Taylor, Thomas cut from NFL teams

As we watched the defense of our beloved Huskies' be gashed by Denard "Pat White's Ghost" Robinson, former UConn players were being cut around the NFL on the league's unofficial D-Day.

-- Despite receiving some glowing reviews for his work ethic and smiling 97% of the time he was on camera for HBO's "Hard Knocks" series, former WR/RS Larry Taylor was let go by the Jets.

-- Even more surprising, however, was the release of former OG Donald Thomas by the Dolphins. Thomas played in all 16 games last year, starting 12, but apparently was no longer in Bill Parcells' plans. But while the former CFL star Taylor may struggle to catch on with a team, I'd expect to see Thomas on a roster before games begin this weekend.

-- Despite being selected in the second round in the 2009 draft, Cody Brown will likely never take the field for the Cardinals. After missing all of last season because of injury, the Arizona rush-LB was cut before his career really ever began.

-- Some good news, though: Robert McClain, a seventh-round pick by the Panthers, appears to be safe for now
