Per a source and as speculated, receiver Yamon Figurs has been released to make room for offensive tackle Erik Pears.
Keeping Figurs on the active roster was a mistake because his contract is now guaranteed for the entire season.
In the end, his ball security issues may have been his demise and his talents are somewhat redundant.
He also failed to take accountability for his fumble on the opening kickoff. While Figurs had a point, that’s not what you want a player to say.
