Now, this is assuming that Rodney, Light, and Koppen are back active for week one (reasonable assumption) and that nobody goes on IR (ridiculous assumption). People, especially young 'uns, are going to go on IR, which will allow us to keep a few more. After this roster, we have over 20 million left under the cap (Thanks Miguel) to sign the rookies and maybe a veteran who shakes loose from another team (Donnie Edwards, I'm looking in your direction). I'm also assuming none of the other long snappers is consistent enough to take Paxton's job, but I hope I'm wrong. QB (3): Brady, Cassell, Flutie/Mortenson/Huard/TBA RB (3): Dillon, Faulk, Maroney WR (5): Branch, Caldwell, Brown, Jackson, Childress TE (4): Graham, Watson, Thomas, Mills C/G (5): Koppen, Hochstein, Neal, Mankins, Mruczkowski/Yates/Tucker/Steitz T (4): Light, Gorin, Kaczur, O'Callaghan/Britt K (1): Gostkowski/other P (1): Miller LS (1): Paxton DL (6): Seymour, Green, Warren, Wilfork, Hill, Wright/Thomas LB (8): Vrabel, Colvin, Bruschi, Beisel, Mincey, Davis, 2 of Alexander/Banta-Cain/Izzo/Claridge/Gardner CB (6): Gay, Samuel, Hobbs, Warfield, Andrews, Poteat/Spann S (6): Harrison, Hawkins, Wilson, Mitchell, Sanders, Ventrone/K. Jackson/G. Scott Last cuts include Pass, plus the guys who lose out on the competitions noted above. That's 12 guys, half of which will probably make the team due to IR or PUP situations. Our return game is in capable hands with Hobbs, Childress, Andrews, and Maroney. Cover teams feature Davis, Mitchell, Sanders, and the winners of the Linebacker and safety competitions. Special Teams play will be huge in deciding who gets those spots.
