Football is the ultimate team sport. Problem is, that team can only be composed of 53 men (as per NFL rules). Subtract the three special teams players (Long snapper, Kicker, Punter) and that leaves a scant 50 players-- 25 on offense, 25 on defense, ideally-- to round out the rest of the team. So, while we might seem to be stacked at 4-3DT, the sad fact of the matter is that a good number of them have to be cut to make room for depth at other positions (no amount of DT depth is going to help the team if Byrd, our sole FS, goes down to injury). Soooo... in what I imagine will be an ongoing series I'm posting (another) 53 man roster pictoral. I'm hoping this will be a collaborative project. Do you think someone is out of position? Do you think there's someone else on the roster better suited to a particular position? Did I cut someone you've your heart set on? Etc...
Without further adieu:
some quick notes:
B.Scott is playing strongOLB, but only in obvious pass downs. We still need a starter @ strong OLB
IF Troup can't play, he would most likely be substituted for L.Dotson
D.Edwards & S.Johnson were both casualties due to their age, & tho they might not we worth anything, I would TRY to trade them.
J.Nesbitt is our depth at FS. He doesn't make the 53man roster since (I'm guessing) no one will steal him from the PS, & leaving him there opens up a roster spot for "more valuable" depth.
Ok then... have at it! (and don't forget those special teamers hiding at the bottom)
