We do seem to be a bit thin, but if Sanders comes back healthy for week 1, and if we have Chung and BM healthy, then that's a good 3 safeties. At that point we're looking for a #4 guy, who is also a big ST contributor. Brown was that last year, except he was the #5 (albeit with Page hurt for a good portion of the season).
With 90 players in camp, we should have more safeties. Even if it was 80 players, we should have more than 4.
Nate Solder (6'8" 320 lbs)
Seabass (6'8" 320 lbs)
Rob Gronkowski (6'6" 265 lbs)
Jake Ballard (6'6" 275 lbs)
Logan Mankins (6'4" 320 lbs) (100% recovered)
Dan Connolly (6'4" 320 lbs)
Marcus Cannon (6'5" 340 lbs) (Switch to Guard??)
RB: Ridley, Vereen, Washington, Bolden
