1 PS game down, 3 to go!!! Any changes to your lists boys??? I have a couple.....
#1...Our football zombie Dixon continues to live on!!! We clearly need a short yardage back and he can contribute on STs to boot. If Dixon is in, then Im moving Gray out to the PS.
#2...Moore was left off my original list, but he's gonna make this 53. Do we carry 6 WR's? Does Kenny Wiggins get cut since we have Snyder to back up all spots? It comes down to Lockette or Wiggins for me. I think Lockette's upside knocks Wiggins off the roster and we wait for OT Mount Marquardt to come off the PUP.
#3...Based on Fangio's comments, I do not think Tank will be ready for the season. Meaning he will be put on the PUP and may return as late as week 12. IT may be a blessing in disguise to have some fresh legs added to the pass rush later in the year. If he or Dial are on the PUP, I think Dobbs makes the 53.
#4...this one is the hardest of all. Wilhoite clearly earned the #3 ILB spot and is a ST ace, so he makes it onto the list. But who to cut?? Skuta is a ST ace and had 2 sacks yesterday. Haralson is the key backup to both OLB spots and Corey Lemonier is a high round pick who is a serious pass rushing threat. Lets assume Moody's injury is not that bad and he's ready for week 1. Then do we really keep 5 ILBs?? Especially with 2 All Pros ahead of them? It will come down to Moody, Skuta and Cam Johnson for the last spot on the roster. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Cam makes it. Mostly on his potential and need next year when Haralson is gone. If that's the case, Moody's long term potential, age and contract price push him over the edge and unfortunately, Skuta is gone.
