As horrible as Newton played for the last two seasons, there should be no question that regardless of your perceived potential for Newton at guard, he should not make the 53 man roster, and should be joining other failures on the unemployment line.
No, but that wasn't what you asked.
In any event, all I (and I believe several others) are saying is there is something in between starter and the street. There is zero reason to cut him right now. Might as well let him compete to make the 53 as a backup. Gotta have depth also, not just starters.
