Likely Locks IMO
(3) TE: Davis, Walker, Byham
(5) WR: Crab, Manningham, Moss, Jenkins, Ginn
(8) OL: Staley, Iupati, Goodwin, Kilgore, Davis, Boone, Person, Rookie or FA
(3) QB: Smith, Kaep, Johnson or Tolz
(5) RB: Gore, Miller, Hunter, James, Jacobs
That's 24 roster spots. If we split the remaining roster evenly taking away three for Lee, Akers and Jennings, that leaves one offensive roster spot for Williams, Dixon, Cartright or a ninth o-lineman to fight over . . . unless we carry 26 offensive players, which is possible. A lot can change between now and July, but Ginn is safe.
Five star post.
Right on the money. Just like with Moss, I'm not even convinced Jacobs will make the final 53 due to how expendable his contract is. He'll most likely make it, but if he didn't, would not be a surprise at all.
