IMHO, The only way Andrews makes the 53 is as the 10th OL, of Belichick judges that he really sees a future in him, and is willing to carry him as...
I expect that he'll be put on IR before the final cut.
I don't understand this logic.
If Stork isn't available for a couple of weeks, we don't need a player with upside; we need a player with...
Hooman or Williams will be our fullback if Josh choosing to run formations needing a fullback.
AUGUST 30 ROSTER
OFFENSE (24) excluding Blount who is suspended
QB (2) T.Brady/Lindsley, J.Garoppolo
RB (4) (L.Blount), J.Gray, B.Bolden,...
Can the IR-DTR designation be used as late as Week or 5 or 6 to have a player available for the playoffs?
If a top player get injured later, then you keep him on the 53, just as we always have. IR-DTR is an extra roster spot for 1/2 a year. We can...
I don't understand this strategy. On the initial cut day, about 600 players will be cut. It would seem a lot easier to "sneak" Moore onto the...
Roberts can be put on season ending IR next week, without exposing him to waivers. If you think he can come back in 6-8 weeks, then he can be put...
Perhaps, this is how we should be looking at Ryan. He is a better choice for the roster than Ebner or Wilson.
Ryan has had lots of defensive reps, including some starts. He is also pretty good on special teams.
Kareem Brown 2007. He was cut after the 3rd or 4th game.
So gentle you are.
Since he became our coach, Belichick has NEVER EVER cut a fourth (or earlier) rounder in his first summer before the season...
Why do you think that the team will carry Roberts on the 53? Somehow, I think McClain would be much useful. So would Swanson.
Also, are you...
My point was that Develin has little to do with whether we need 4 or 5 running backs. That decision is based on the value that the 4 or 5 running...
EDITED to total 75
SIT OUT (40)
SPECIAL TEAMS (3)
My bad. We can only sit 40 players. 14 offense + 16 defense + 3 STers totals 35 players.
Cannon's payments for the rest of the year total $1.2M salary plus up to $250K in game bonuses.
I have listed a 15 man offense.
I have listed a 16 man defense.
The total is 16+16+ 3 STer's= 35
My bad. We can only hold out 40 players.
Sure Jimmy needs the reps. However, we shouldn't risk him in a meaningless preseason game with scrubs as his team.
