    We have three STer's: Andrews, Iwoume and Spann. I don't think they'll be covering in the regular defense any time soon.

    We have Hobbs,Samuel,Scott,Harrison,Wilson,Hawkins and Sanders.

    Perhaps the FO has decided that 10 defensive backs is enough and that a 7-3 breakout between position players and special teamer is fine.

    Me, I would prefer Poteat, or another position player, in place of one of the three Ster's.

    I am not questioning the total of 10, just the allocation of 3 positions to Special Teams. I'd much rather see Hank than Troy coming out on the field on pass defense.

    We'll see how the FO uses the 53rd spot recently vacated.

    I agree about Troy Brown - I love the guy but who wants to see him on D? Not even Troy, it's almost too much to ask of a guy to prepare for both sides of the ball and special teams. Granted, he's done fine.

    No Jersey Selected


    Amen. Why Hank was released at this time still puzzles me. For now.

    Thats right Troy is one of our most consistent receivers and he's a total team player but Offense is where he needs to be right now especially.

    Maybe they are going to pick up some other DB that they think is of a better value.

    I believe the 53rd slot has been cleared for Patrick Pass, who becomes eligible to come off the PUP next week.
