Call me crazy but I think Alex gets cut if he doesnt win the starting job. Huard is probably a better backup and we cant leave Davis unprotected on the PS. I think we need other positions to greatly to keep 4 QBs...
Why wouldn't we cut Huard instead? Alex is continuing to develop and he's getting paid backup money. If all else fails, we can resign Huard at any time as an emergency QB.
Also, does anyone know the PS procedure? If we put Davis on the PS and someone tries to add him to their 53-man, do we have first dibs to add him first?
I agree with your thinking... Alex isn't going anywhere this season.
To your question, I'm fairly certain that it doesn't work that way. I have heard of situations where the team possessing a PS player gets "tipped off" of another team's interest... so they quickly make room for the PS player. I don't believe we can "match or better" an offer though. What someone said about the dyslexia (or whatever disability it is) is a great point to why a team wouldn't pluck him to find room on their 53 man roster.
I like the way you categorized the locks from the bubble players, OP... have to go back and look to see what I'd do there.
Any person on the practice squad is fair game for any tema to sign. Like in any siutation though where an agent is trying to get his client signed he will always try to drive up the proce for his client. SO basically if Davis was to get interest from another team I believe the agent, in the interest of doing his job, would give the niners a chance to add him for more money. So yes, 99 times out of 100, you have a chance to keep your own player but there is no rule that states you have to have first re-fusal.
With that said I think Nate goes on the PS because he has a earnin g disability and I doubt any one will think he can contribute this year.
As for the roster predictions I think they are pretty good. Except I think we keep 8 lineman 7 recievers including Spurlock and Hill and only three QB's. I think we keep so many recievers because next year Battle, Rossum and Bruce will be gone and I think the staff is smitten by Spurlocks speed and return ability. So I think they stash Ziegler and Davis on the PS for as long as they can and adjust accordinly mid-year if necessary and based on record. Just my opinion though.
