My own Roster projection 4.0

Well this will be my last projection before the Bills actually make a decision.  After the Bills make all of their cuts I will be comparing what the Bills brought into the '08 season to what they are going to bring into the '09 season.

There weren't many changes since last projection but I do want to clarify a few things.

Johnathon Stupar - I still kept him on my projection for one main reason, Derek Fine's hamstring injury.  These type of injuries can really bring down a player for a while and since hardy doesn't look to be getting off of PUP anytime soon Stupar takes his place.  I don't bring in Jenkins because the Bills are stocked at #3 WR (Johnson, Reed, Parrish).

Copeland Bryan - I think it is completely possible for him to get cut, but the Bills completely realize that even if they win this season and just follow it up with a pathetic '10 season they are screwed.  I really don't see Denney being resigned next year and Kelsay making the team again (it is also completely possible Schobel is let go).  As a result they keep Bryan (who I don't think could ever be a starter) but to help as a reliable young back up.

Pat Thomas - until I hear that he is completely shot from his injury he makes the team.  The Bills can live without activating him on game days which mean they can not activate him for the first couple games to make sure he is completely healed and 100%.

Drayton Florence - right now I don't have him active on game days only because of his injury.  I certainly see him getting active on game days (deactivating Youboty) once he is 100%.  But don't be suprised if Corner does a solid job for him to still hold down the nickel.
