QB 2 RB 5 With the injuries these guys have I can't feel comfortable w/ less FB 0 TE 3 The 2 rookies stay. So does one vet, presumably Crumpler WR 6 Moss, Holt, Edelman, Tate, Price plus at least one more (Aiken, Slater, Stanbach) OT 4 Less is scary G/C 5 Ditto, and there are various developmental guys Offense: 25 K/P/LS: 3 CB 5 At least, especially since Sanders/Chung is a questionable coverage backup if Meriweather goes down. Say Bodden/Butler/McCourty/W1/W2 S 4 Meriweather/Sanders/Chung and either McGowan or a STer. OLB/rusher 4 from TBC/Woods/Cunningham/Crable/Burgess/Ninkovich/whoever. Could be low. ILB/swing LB 4 Mayo/Spikes/Guyton/McKenzie (or maybe Alexander or whoever) DL 7 Wilfork/T. Warren/Wright/Pryor/Brace + 2 more Defense: 24 Open: 1 That's with very few positions left available for ST-only guys. Every year we say that the ST-only guys will be cut back. And in fact I don't see Aiken or Slater going anyway, and I bet BB would love to add Arrington (or whoever) plus one big STer (Alexander or whoever) to that list. But let's put it this way -- I wish he'd kept Dave Thomas last year instead, and probably so does he.
