1) There will be about 750 players cut in the last ten days before Game One. 2) I agree that a few of our veteran cuts might be picked up for someone's 53-man roster. As Ochmed indicated, the OL is the best example of this possibility. Any of the following could be snapped up if we cut them: Hochstein, Johnson, Britt, Callaghan and even Yates. Obviously, I am not even considering the eight that I consider locks, although any of them would also be snapped up. I suppose someone might want Spann, Richardson or one our special teamers if they were cut (Slater, Ventrone, Ciurciu, Williams, Aiken, Redd, Alexander). 3) HOWEVER, I find it unlikely that a team having chosen its 53 man squad would want one of our 5th round or later 2009 draftees, although this does happen to one or two a year. Perhaps Bussey and Ingram MIGHT be picked up, but I doubt it. 4) ROOKIE UNDRAFTED FREE AGENTS are very, very unlikely to picked up for someone else's 53 man roster, although this could happen to a QB or punter. For example, if Hoyer is great in preseason, someone might pick him up. 5) FINALLY, if we cut someone, he might want to play on someone else's Practice Squad instead of that of the patriots. There are many considerations for a player in that situation. 6) My bottom line is that if a player is one of our best 53 players, he will make the 53 man squad. If not, he may make the Practive Squad, but I don't really care much. After all, we don't have any special right to sign our Practice Squad players to our 53-man squad. Any team can do that. Of the late rounders and UDFA's, barring a couple of injuries, I only expect Hoyer and Ingam to have much chance of making our 53 man roster.
