    With the signing of the CFL player we got I think Hilliard became expendable. Don't see him coming back.

    Messum looks like competition for Thomas rather than Hilliard in that he's a big tailback rather than a fullback / special teamer

    I think you are over valuing Messam. I know there is another thread talking this guy up like he's the next Walter Peyton, but this guy will be lucky to make the team imo. Messam cant block, catch, or play ST as well as Hilliard, and as a No. 3 or No. 4 RB, you need to be able to do those things.

    Hilliard is a good special teams player, used as a fullback, and depth at HB. If his contract is minimum, there is no need to get rid of him. If they bring Slaton back then Hilliard will most likely be cut. Training camp will decide the HB position.

    Jerome Messam played special teams in Canada and he's already at least as good a blocker as Lex Hilliard.

    Hilliard is a free agent and with Messam in town, the only way Lex comes back is if he signs for a minimum deal.

    The turnstile is a f/a anyways, so this is good.

    For those asking, Marc Columbo is a unrestricted free agent, so there is no cutting needed. Lex Hilliard is a restricted free agent, so I assume they will extend a qualifying offer to him.
