    With roster cuts coming next week, who do you think will make it, and you think won't make the team.

    I know he is likely not going to make it, but I think Justin Tuggle would be a great addition to this team. All our young OLBs are sort of playing the same position and have shown more flashes in pass rushing then coverage. Tuggle has shown to be a sort of all around player in the little I've seen in both rushing and coverage similar to Reed and I think he'd make a good addition.

    Sadly, the only way I see them keep Tuggle is if they IR one of the drafted OLBs or cut Brahman or Jefferson so it will be bittersweet no matter what happens unless he somehow manages to make it safely onto the practice squad.

    I'm also thinking draft picks Chris Jones DT/DE and Alan Bonner WR are going to wind up on IR.

    Dont we usually go with 5 WR? If so, that means Lemon is out, unfortunately.

    I think Jefferson is in...I think Tuggle is out.

    Dennis Johnson getting the axe.

    I think Karim has a slight edge over Wood...although, I'd like to see Wood get PT with the first team. As it stands, Karim making the team with Wood on the PS.

    Carmichael has shown some things in the last game finally. I think lemon will end up on PS

    i hate to see shapiro go. looks like a promising punter, could see the pats picking him up.

    love our receiving core. Major upgrade with Deandre + experience for the other two, and they can all line up all over. So when the other team's D is stopping our double TE sets, we can counter with so much more.

    wish we could keep bouye on the roster too. =(

    That list looks good, except I think it is a lock that Kub will carry 3 TEs and Griffin has looked good. He can also block. I swapped him in and put Jefferson on p-squad (has potential but too small and raw at this point, and they basically already have a dedicated ST player in Keo).

    I bolded the parts where I disagree with, mainly because those guys to me seem more likely to get cut. Especially Gardner who may practice nicely but in games is usually trash against anyone but bottom of the barrel competition. I don't think we carry 3 DT/NT players because this team really doesn't value the position and have gone one record of saying that they don't mind using Crick or Jaimeson at the position or basically play with out it. Even with Foster's injury I can't see us carry 4 RBs unless one is exclusive for special teams and since Karim is the best looking special team player and can carry the rock fairly well, I see them sticking with 3 RBs.

    Plus DieHard Rocket is right, there is no way Griffin doesn't make the roster if healthy, especially given the injury histories of Daniels and Graham. We are likely to need 3 TEs, maybe even keep another FB.

    Okay, so cut Muir, add Griffin.

    I suppose there is still time for Foster to get healthy (looks like he's coming off the PUP list.) but I can't see them going into the season with Ben Tate and Deji Karim as the only two RBs. You're probably right though and they only go 3 RBs. And you have one spot open for whoever. Willie Jefferson? That'd be a tough cut.

    I think you have to keep Jefferson in the sense that he's shown too much and won't clear the wire through to make it to the practice squad. Someone will claim him.

    I think barring an IR stash , Shapiro kicks in the NFL for someone this season , he's been outstanding.


    Jefferson , I think makes the final 53 at the expense of a 6th CB ..... None of those guy's has shown me anything to say they deserve a roster spot.
