Ok so the roster cuts will come fast and furious in the next few days and I wanted to put out a roster projection before any surprise cuts come out. So much has changed in the last week it was like starting from scratch, but here it goes. Feel free to pick it apart, make changes or add your own roster in the comments.
I have 24 players on offense:
WR) S. Johnson-- R. Woods-- M. Easely
LT) C. Glenn -- T. Welch -- (FA to replace Welch)
LG) C. Brown -- D. Snow -- (FA to replace Snow)
C) E. Wood
RG) C. Urbik
RT) E. Pears -- S. Young
TE) S. Chandler -- L. Smith -- C. Gragg
WR) TJ Graham -- M. Goodwin -- C. Hogan
QB) EJ Manuel -- J. Tuel -- T. Lewis
RB) CJ Spiller -- F. Jackson -- T. Choice
FB) F. Summers
I have 26 players on defense:
RE) M. Williams -- J. Hughes -- J. Blatnick
DT) K. Williams -- J. Ross
DT) M. Dareus -- A. Branch
DE) A. Carrington -- C. Bryant
MLB) K. Alanso -- A. Moats -- K Westerman
WLB) N. Bradham -- B. Scott
SLB) M. Lawson -- M. Downtin
CB) S. Gilmore -- C. Butler
FS) J. Byrd -- D. Williams
SS) A. Williams -- D. Searcy -- J. Meeks
NB) R. Brooks
CB) L. McKelvin -- J.Rogers --(FA to replace Rogers)
I have 3 players on special teams:
K) D. Hopkins
P) S. Powell
LS) G. Sanborn
Kolb and Legursky go to IR.
Waiver wire plan: If I was running this team I would be jumping on the first healthy CB with talent to play outside until Gilmore returns and then give McKelvin some competition after that. We need better depth than Rogers and Butler. I would be fine with paying out 3-5 Million to the right guy. I would also then address the OL depth looking for a LT and LG. As soon as I found someone I would cut Welch and Snow and put them on the PS where they belong.
To Start the year I would have (5) Z. Brown, B. Kaufman, K. Pough, K. Edwards, and J. Dangerfield on the PS. I expect we will have some players stolen this year so if Kaufman, Pough or Brown leave then I would replace them with Sampson, and Gaskins. The last two spots are reserved for the OL after we improve the depth on the roster. I would also keep Chibane, Provo, Rogers, K. Brown, I. Cross and N. Robey on speed dial.
