In terms of depth a good rule of thumb is having a backup for every starting spot. 22 starters + 22 backups +kicker & punter & Long snapper and youre already above the active roster #. Then factor guys like Snyder who can back up multiple positions or Dixon who can serve as FB and it allows you to stack other positions, usually DB's & WR's as they tend to get hurt more often.
thank you and i do totally get the multi task aspect. that is why people like skuta and dahl were signed and stuck , they play two spots and special teams,, that is why dixon stays as he is a good short yardage guy and special teams person.. that is also the reason why ginn was dispatched,, he was a one trick pony who did nothing as a wide out and lost his kick return job to james so all he did was punt returns which he sucked at to. a one trick pony will only take you to a few towns
