QB Bryant Moniz among final Ticats cuts

The Ticats have (finally) made their final cuts.

Quarterback Bryant Moniz is a probably the most notable name, though his release is hardly a surprise after his terrible performance in the pre-season game on Saturday. Return man Willie Quinn showed some flashes last year but this team has a number of speedsters, including Frankie Williams who returned a punt for a TD in the first pre-season game. Canadian receiver Jacob Scarfone got some time with the first unit early in camp but his release almost guarantees they’ll start just one national receiver.
