Keeping nine linebackers is a heavy chore. While it helps special teams to a terrific degree, it usually hurts the number of players that can be kept in the secondary.

Perhaps the injury to David Harris is the reason five inside guys were kept. Trevor Reilly and Freddie Bishop were the tough cuts along the edge.
