    Re: Schefter expects Asante to play week 1

    With James cut, that means only Asante, Gay & Hobbs are our true corners.

    I guess that means Meriweather, Wilson, Andrews (he'll play safety, corner and WR) and of course, Troy Brown (after PUP) will be on the depth chart at corner???

    That's odd. We had room on the 53 to activate Asante into, didn't we?

    Yes, in the other post, someone said just that.

    Must mean they plan to sign someone after week one and have room for 'em right now.

    My guess is a defensive lineman...or, they cut someone else and add a corner as well (which doesn't make sense seeing as they just cut a corner).

    Re: Schefter expects Asante to play week 1

    I'm a little uneasy about cornerback depth considering the injury history of Gay. It would be nice if James found a spot on the shadow roster, but he could definitely be picked up by someone else.

    Good news. Not just because of Samuel, but I'm glad we won't being seeing a washed up Tory James playing for us. The Cincy fans hated him.

    I agree. He really didn't impress me that much during any of the preseason games. I wonder if they are going to pick up any of the players that they worked out this week.

    This is certainly a possibility.

    As some of us held, Tory James is JUNK. I wish him well, but I'm glad he's gone. (Crosses fingers...)

    Re: Schefter expects Asante to play week 1

    It's true that James didn't show too well in the preseason games recently. However, if(and WHEN) we have db injuries, James is going to still probably be better than most of what will be available. Especially considering that he at least has a jump on the playbook and scheme of the defense.

    Of course if there are no injuries then there's no problem. I'm certainly not holding my breath on that though.

    Excellent...now let's hope the weather isn't TOO hot, and they don't run him ragged on that side.

    I bet the weather is indeed hot and humid. I expect Gay to play a substantial amount of time and even start.
