    They have named seven, with room for one more.

    center Brett Helms, Offensive tackle Cole Pemberton, defensive tackle Malcom Sheppard, linebacker Isaiah Greenhouse, safety Torri Williams, receiver Bobby Williams and runningback Chris Ogbonnaya.

    Interesting about Ogbonnaya. I liked him to the Texans in the late round in the draft last year.

    Also - see? No sweat on Sheppard making it to the Psquad.

    He is eligible but my guess is they are still weighing their options on a third QB. If nothing else comes up then I bet you're right and it will be JDB finishing up the PSquad.

    Like I said in another thread, the only question mark to me is Helms. Ogbonnaya is a little strange, but not too out there. I would have preferred Bell, but stuff happens.

    I'm glad Greenhouse made it in some form. Dude was a beast on special teams.

    I have a feeling they have an offer in on Jeremiah Johnson also, and he has not decided which way to go.

    I like the PS signings as a whole. Ogbonnaya has the ability to be a RB/FB. He has been a high effort guy, local kid also.

    What ever happened to Anthony Aldridge? Last I saw he was with the Redskins.

    We still have a roster spot and a PS spot, so Booty should get one of those.

    I kinda hope they find another back up-drop Dan-O and keep Booty on the PS.

    Aldridge is still a free agent... but as far as psquad RBs, I like Oggy! He'll probably be replaced by Jeremiah when he's healthy though.

    I like the list of players here! I'm glad no one claimed Isaiah, Cole, & Malcolm off waivers!

    Did we fill the last spot on our PS yet?

    Helms is a bit of a head scratcher, I agree with most!
    Anybody see him "live" this year?
    Did he fill out any?
    How big does he look next to the other linemen that we have?

    I guess we reverse the 8th spot for Jerehmiah Johnson?

    Johnson's injured. I think they'll look for someone who is ready to go on the field. Nixon will likely go to the PS when Cushing comes off suspension.

    I thought we'd find a spot on the active roster for Greenhouse because he was such a stud on ST.

    I guess the Leinart signing takes Booty off the list for the 8th PS position.

    So, who is the likely candidate now?

    Jeremiah Johnson is my best guess. He was a stud in the preseason.

    Greenhouse had 2 tackles and one assist on special teams this preseason. This earns a roster spot and stud status? Am I missing something?

    Come on Lucky, you know its not all about the stat sheet. He was constantly down around the action, and more than once I saw him blow up the new mini-wedge that is allowed.

    I think this too, Kubiak will keep a QB is what I am guessing.

    I didn't know the numbers were that low. I just always noticed him around the ball when we were on special teams.
