Carradine is a different story. If he comes back and looks good, i think one of Dobbs/Stupar/TJE are the likely cuts.
First of Crabtree/Manningham back would cut one of the 3 (Dobbs/Stupar/TJE)
2nd of Crabtree/Manningham would cut Kyle Williams, Baldwin, or the KSU WR/TE (forgot his name).
I think Baldwin gets a one year pass. Cutting Kyle Williams really depends on how the returner situation is looking. For now, I say he is safe because he can return and brings more to the table as a receiver than Ted Ginn did. If Kyle Williams is looking good as a PR, he stays and has more value than Marlon Moore for example. They also could go to another area altogether.
I really don't expect to see Dial at all this season. Just IR him. Even if he were ready to turn, I highly doubt he'd get any meaningful snaps. On top of that, did he even participate in any of training camp? I don't think Tank Carradine did either, but his talent may be enough to get him on the field. And it still depends on Fangio believing that either of these guys can give him more than the current backups.
