I'm really hoping we pick up C.J. Spiller. I'd be disappointed if we don't or can't.
That said, if we draft him what will happen to our roster?
Do we cut MRob, one of our best special teamers? Could we go with one less receiver if Spiller is our dedicated return man instead of carrying Spurlock on our roster for half the season before cutting him? Is Arnaz Battle gone yet?
MRob maybe listed as 3rd on the depth chart but he's really a ST and yes, teams do have guys on the rosters who are just special teamers.
Moran Norris is a FB and will likely be gone next year. He's a FA, we've got Brit Miller, we've signed a FB to a future contract and we'll probably end up drafting one. That leaves us Frank Gore and Glen Coffee as the two backs.
Coffee isn't starter material in my opinion. Besides we may end up trying to use him as trade bait to land Cromartie. That would leave us with Gore and whomever we drafted.
If we don't trade Coffee then we'll have Gore, the rookie, and Coffee.
