Here are my thoughts on Wylie.

Dex and Nile are expected to do more than Devin with the offense and only one guy can return the ball at a time, so Wylie was just taking up a roster spot that they needed for depth in other positions (Like linebacker).
I also think his hamstring injury in the final preseason game may have been more significant than they let on, but Reid played it down so Wylie would have a better chance of getting picked up by another team.
