    didn't see his play against the Giants, but I don't think he looked that good in the first three games . Lynch is the obvious upgrade in most spots. Hopefully this means Merriweather is not too nicked up.

    Spann is a FS....not related to Lynch.This has more to do with Slater's eye-opening play at FS against the Giants.

    Actually Spann was playing more of a SS position in the preseason (sometimes, at least), and Lynch has played both positions throughout his career. As have Sanders and Meriweather. They're all inter-related.

    No,he hasn't been playing SS....he's a FS.

    We have 3 players who could play FS fulltime.In order:

    1.Meriweather
    2.Spann
    3.Sanders

    Harrison and Lynch used to be free safeties and can fill in there.However,you would never...and I mean never succeed with either as a full time FS.

    As I said,Slater is what is making Spann superfluous.It's NOT related to Lynch and Harrison.......apples and oranges.

    No Jersey Selected

    It appeared that there were 3 spots available to 4 players: Slater, Ventrone, Lew Sanders & Spann.

    Slater stayed because of his WR/FS/Return versatility, and his draft status.
    Ventrone stayed because of his FS/ST experience, and his potential at Slot WR, esp. w/ Welker's availability in doubt.
    Sanders stayed because of his CB experience & his possibility at FS.

    As well as Spann has played, we just can't keep them all.
