    So we've got to get down to 65 tomorrow minus NFLE exemptions. I believe we have 7 here so it would really be 72, I guess. Either way, who will be the surprise cuts? Personally, I see two 2nd stringers getting a pink slip, out of courtesy so that they can get some reps in and maybe catch on with another team... Billy Miller and Lewis Sanders.

    Maybe Hollings gets a courtesy boot as well. Hopefully the front office will own up to their mistake on this one and not keep him around for another season.

    That last receiver spot is gonna be a tough decision on Sept. 2. From what I can tell, Sloan Thomas has played his way ahead of Starling and Kasper.

    we have a sharp drop in talent at CB behind Faggins. I think we may hold onto Sanders for a bit longer.

    Miracles never cease. I actually do agree with you about something. ;)

    I keep these receivers. Johnson, Gaff, Bradford, Armstrong, Mathis, Swinton, Thomas. I get rid of Baxter, Hollings, and a TE to make room for that to be possible.

    if we would cut bradford off that list.. it would be alot easier to fit those 6 on the roster.

    I'm thinking we have to keep 3 TEs to run our offense effectively. How many times do we line up with 2 TEs, what if one of them gets hurt, than we only have 1 TE, and can't run that formation. Murphy, Miller, Bruener

    7 wide receivers? :whew I agree with that also, but I serously doubt Capers will go for it.

    That's the beauty of Wells being able to play RB and FB. He provides depth at both positions and allows 2 roster spots for the price of one.

    The rosters should be expanded in the next CBA. 60 seems like a more reasonable number than 53 with all of the injuries.
