Asked if he was planning on cutting anyone else, GM Marty Hurney said on a conference call he didn't think they'd need to.
"I don’t think so," he said with an unusual degree of clarity. "But I don’t want to speak to anything."

That might be a good sign for CB Ken Lucas, who escaped the first round of cuts. Then again, it might not, since they're guarding the plans with great care.
Asked specifically about Lucas, Hurney went on one of his usual rants about "speculation," saying he was only going to talk about what they've done.
"I'm not going to get into what we’re going to do," he said. "What I’m going to talk about is what we’ve done. What we’re going to do isn’t something I want to talk about.
"We’re obviously always working on things, and talking about things, but I’d really rather comment on what we’ve done at this point, because anything else is speculation."
-- Hurney also said off-field issues weren't a part of the decision to cut G-T Jeremy Bridges, saying they were trying to create younger depth there.
-- They haven't sent out tenders to their four restricted free agents yet. They have until tomorrow afternoon to do so.
