    Seven will get playing time at defensive back and special teams, the rest almost only on special teams.

    Has BB ever kept more than 10? Except for injury situations and such, and the ST guys are hard to tally. I do recall that BB suited 10 DBs for the Rams SuperBowl.

    Thanks for the correction, must be some other game I'm recalling with 10DBs.
