While many things will change from now until opening day, including injuries, late free agents from June 1 and waiver pick ups, I would argue that the offensive portion of the 53 man roster is largely set. If you assume that three spots are locked in with the kicker, punter and long snapper, we can guess that each of the offense and defense will have 25 spots, although it can vary somewhat to fit in returners & gunners (is the returner an extra WR, or CB). I believe that the Texans have 22 offensive spots spoken for already, if they are not 'hidden' on Injured Reserve. I believe the 22 are: 1 QB David Carr 2 QB David Ragone 3 QB Tony Banks 4 RB Domanick Davis 5 RB Tony Hollings 6 FB Jarrod Baxter 7 FB Moran Norris 8 WR Andre Johnson 9 WR Jabar Gaffney 10 WR Corey Bradford 11 WR Derick Armstrong 12 TE Bennie Joppru 13 TE Billy Miller 14 TE Mark Bruener 15 LT Chester Pitts 16 LG Todd Washington 17 C Steve McKinney 18 RG Zach Wiegert 19 RT Todd Wade 20 OT Seth Wand 21 OG Milford Brown 22 OG Fred Weary In addition to the above, they will probably keep a third RB (maybe Wells), a 5th WR (maybe Sloan) and perhaps a 4th tight end (maybe Holloway). While they will need an additional offensive tackle to practice, they may just use one from the practice squad. Remember, even if they have the above on the 53 man roster, less will dress for the game. For example, the 46 man game day roster (with 3 QBs) will still have a kicker, punter and long snapper active. Likely that means 22 (3 QBs) on offense and 21 on defense. Accordingly, we may only dress 4 WR, 3 TE, 2 RB 7 OL, 1 FB; etc. If the above is correct, then really a lot of late round picks and free agent pick ups are fighting for 1 or 2 spots. Give me your thoughts?
