Ugh, dude the NFL Roster limit is 53 players. Also you have under CB, Glove/Quin. I think you are thinking of the same person unless there is someone on our team with the last name Glove. So that means we only need to make one cut. I would choose TJ.

My two cuts to get to 53 are B. Harrison and Studdard.

Here are my 53. Similar to yours, but with a few different twists.

-I think Jerimiah Johnson should be IR'd to get his shoulder right and to keep him off the PS.

-Moats will quickly be added back to the roster when Brown gets hurt

-I added WR Jenkins because I like him a lot. I think he might eventually replace JJ or Anderson

-I cut Studdard

-I cut LB Thompson

-You had Quin twice, so I added who I think you meant - Brice McCain

-I cut Harrison

This could very well change by the end of camp.

Default Re: 52 man roster. Predict yours.

TJ could possibly start on PuP which is an extra spot immediately. After that I think Harrison has his work cut out for him at S. I think at best one of the rookie RBs makes it and that will be decided in TC/PS. Grigsby will take the other spot. I think Thompson has a tough time because I really like the first 6 LBs and I think one of White/Studdard doesn't make the final cut. I think you also listed Glover twice under CB so add on McCain.

McCain the speedster would make my list at CB to take the spot you refer to. I think White would be gone with the following players I have to think on a bit. Butler and Studdard on Oline have not impressed me. That leaves 6 with Caldwell playing swing if not starter. Myers can also shift to guard. Okam and Tj would also be up for consideration to be cut.

Yeah the only thing that worries me is if we only keep 7 OL we are really risking things if someone goes down with an injury. Of all the positions though, I do agree that I would like to cut a couple of our OL namely Studdard and White (I still like Butler). It just seems too risky to do so.

Oh and thanks to everyone that mentioned McCain. He had slipped my mind, and I definitely would like to have him on the team just to see what he can do returning kicks or punts.

7 OL is very much a possibility. Heard Pitts talking about it in his last Brooke Bentley interview. If Caldwell and Butler are the 6th and 7th guys, they'd probly consider Anthony Hill to be the emergency 8th OL. I remember reading that some teams viewed Anthony Hill before the draft as a project left tackle, so in emergency situations that could be what were looking at. And if all that saves you 1 roster spot then its worth it.

If you cut Butler who is the backup tackle? We already would be in a bad spot if Brown or Winston got injured we'd be absolutely screwed in your scenario. What would you do shift Pitts outside and rotate Caldwell or Myers to G? Butler is going to stay, but I agree Studdard. I just am not even sure he's backup material at this point.

Thats 55 players. You have to make 3 cuts. Who would you cut?

I would cut White / TJ / Thompson
Studdard, T.J., and Harrison don't make it. T.J. and Studdard stay hurt too much and the youngsters we have at safety look better than Harrison.

Your RB count says 5 but you've got six guys listed. That's okay because only two of these three guys - Foster/Johnson/Moats - get to stay. So five is a good number for RB/FB "bucket". Moats and Johnson look like the same sized and kind of RB to me; one of those two won't make it.

I stuck Grigsby in as a S/T guy with the kickers. We didn't go get him for nothing. I think he stays.

As others have said, GLove does not exist so I put Pittman in his place @ CB. Maybe McCain beats him out - especially since he has KR experience - but Pittman has been a starter with the Ravens so he gets the edge and McCain goes on the practice squad.

I'm not sure its a given that Bulman beats out Jesse Nading. Then there's McGlover who got hurt before we could see if he was worth picking up. My point here is that the competition for that last DE spot that is gonna be interesting to watch during camp.

I was tempted to cut Dreesen but I got nervous having two rookies as O.D.'s backup.

And for some reason I think Mike Jones beats out Jacoby. But there's not data or logic behind that assertion - just a feeling.

Adrian Jones can also back up as swing tackle if needed.

We have been able to pick up free agent players before due to injury to roster. We don't have to cut 3 Oline players to meet limit just saying some are on bubble.

Default Re: 52 man roster. Predict yours.

Butler is the only swing on the roster. In fact, don't tell anyone but if he or Brown or Winston go Down we could be in a world of hurt. The addition of Caldwell eliminates the need for either Studdard or White.

I see some issues with them keeping all 5 running backs. Mostly, because it just seems unlikely. Brown is of course a question mark every day. Johnson's shoulder does seem like a glaring issue to me. Whereas Foster's knee does not. Moats is a stop gap I believe and likely only makes the roster depending on who if any of these guys go down in TC.

I still believe firmly that Jones' spot is safe unless he really screws up in TC. I think one more season is worth the risk to them because they have such a sold WR core ahead of him. If he doens't make the squad it's Jenkins'. He was active for the last game of the season.

All four TE's are a lock in my opinion.

I'm not convinced they keep 2 FB's. Last year it was Sapp who is a tweener RB/FB I see them trying to do what they did with taylor with foster. Maybe teach him enough to be a stop gap FB in an injury situation.

The big question for depth on offense is that so much of this offense relies heavily on rhythm and they need depth to be up to speed so in that sense it's hard to say how much depth they keep.

TJ's surgery puts a new twist on that rotation. If he starts on the PUP then I think Okam survives through week 6 at least. Antonio Smith's ability to slide inside could end up being a loss of 1 player in the DT rotation. Robinson, Okoye, and TJ (sans PUP or complications) are locks. Cody, Okam and the rest aren't. I could see the Texans keeping less DT's this year with more talent at the DE position. Smith could spend alot more time at DT that originally thought.

No one is mentioning Jesse Nading who played alot the last 4 weeks of the season. He's another DE athletic guy. Probably looses any shot with the addition of Barwin but it's worth mentioning that he did see considerable playing time in the end of the year. Barwin, Nading and Bulman offer a nice rotation opposite Williams. Certianly in passing situations.

I doubt Thompson and June both make the roster. I think the starting 3 plus Bentley and Diles or Adibi (whichever isn't starting) makes up your LB core. Either June or Thompson remain as depth but not active.

CB seems a safe pick at Robinson, Reeves, Bennett, Quinn and Molden and McCain. We're still a team where rookie CB's have a pretty good shot at making the roster. At least David Gibbs has experience with all rookie CB groups.

After watching Harrison at the end of last year I don't see any chance in hell that he make the team. Injury only. Ferguson, Wilson, Barber and .... um ok, maybe he makes it but as 3rd string. It's him or Nolan. I've seen enough of Harrison to give Nolan a shot to develop.

You may only activate 7 on game day but no team in the NFL is foolish to enter the season with only 7 OL on the roster... perhaps a team decimated with injuries has ended the season, or played part of a season with only 7... But, show me an example of a team starting week one with only 7 OLmen on the roster... by choice.

I think that's pretty safe to say given our depth at the Tackle position stinks. J. Watkins seems to fit the role of a Gibbs type of guy with him being a former TE.

IIRC, we kept 2 additional C/G's (White, Studdard) and 2 additional T's (Salaam, Butler), so who might be our Butler this season if he's taking Salaam's spot?
