I posted about this in the Gaffney thread but it could apply to other cuts going forward. It's not all about setting the 53 player roster. You have to look at who's going to play on gameday. Core special teamers will be active every game, barring injury. So if you have a guy that isn't playing special teams, he better be high enough on the depth chart that he's worth keeping. In the case of Gaffney, it's not that he isn't a better WR than Edelman or Slater, it's simply that because of their special teams responsibilities, they're going to be active every week. With Lloyd, Welker and Branch, that's 5 WRs. With the multiple TE sets we like to use, you could argue that Branch might be inactive some weeks. Quality depth is great and it's nice to have insurance in case of injuries. But it's tough to keep a WR (or any position player) in his 30s that might never play except for injuries over a developmental player that could pay off down the road.
