Hey, UK based fan trying to learn a bit more about the game. Sorry if this seems a daft question to more experienced domestic fans! I've been watching all the old seasons of 'Hard Knocks', and I got to the Bengals in 2009, and rather than getting the players who they are cutting in a room and telling them face to face, like all the other teams did, they just told them by phone. Does this vary from team to team, or just them doing it that way? What do the Pats do? It seemed like a pretty poor way for a pro organisation to treat people.
