I don't think they'll keep 7 WR's, but what do I know. Nice list.

Projections are always fun.

But I'm pretty sure Andrew Tiller & Marcel Jones get cut.

Also, If I had to base it on this preseason, Olsen's job is in serious jeopardy. Lelito has clearly outplayed him. Harris has had his moments in camp & in games that I think he outright beats Jones for the job.

Olsen is somewhat disappointing because last year he looked so promising as an UDFA when he clearly outplayed Tennant for the backup G/C job, I thought he would be a solid backup for years to come.

I don't think Chamberlain will make it. He hasent played in 2 yrs and he is a Spagnolo guy.

Yeah but I still think we hold on to Olsen.

I went back and forth with this one myself.

I felt the same way.

I can understand why you did this but I think either Cadet or Robinson makes the 53. Ingram is the wild card here. Until SP is comfortable that he can produce on a consistent level, he'll hedge his bet and keep one more guy at the RB position for safe measure.

Good list. I think they only keep the 3 RBs. I do not see them keeping that many WRs, I am thinking Roby might get the axe, especially if Parker can step into his special teams role.

They are not keeping 7 WRs. Tanner will be the odd man out (Prac Squad).

I'm not sold on Marcel Jones or Andrew Tiller. Also, the main C backup, Eric Olsen isn't listed. Look out for the rookie, Tim Lelito, and I'd almost willing to bet that Bryce Harris makes the team at backup RT.

At LB, I'm not sold on Chamberlain. I like the undrafted guy, Reddick over him.

Everything else I can't argue against.

Robinson to PS, Cadet as either fourth back or the street. Neither will be active on game day unless one of the top three are hurt.

re: My New 53 Man Roster Projection


May as well update mine:

Offense
QB: Brees(lock), McCown(lock)
HB: Thomas(lock), Ingram(lock), Sproles(lock), Robinson(bubble; position battle)
FB: Collins(bubble; position battle)
WR: Colston(lock), Moore(lock), Stills(lock), Toon(lock), Parker(bubble; position battle), Roby(bubble; position battle and spot)
TE: Graham(lock), Watson(lock), Higgins(bubble; spot)
OT: Brown(lock), Strief(lock), Armstead(lock), Harris(lock)
OG/C: Evans(lock), Grubbs(lock), de la Puente(lock), Lelito(bubble; position battle)

Defense
DE: Jordan(lock), Hicks(lock), Foster(lock), Walker(lock)
NT: Bunkley(lock), Jenkins(lock)
ILB: Lofton(lock), Humber(lock), Hawthorne(lock), Vilma(bubble; IR); Reddick(bubble; position battle and spot)
OLB: Galette(lock), Wilson(lock), Haralson(lock), Richardson(bubble; position battle), Johnson(bubble; position battle and spot)
CB: Greer(lock), Lewis(lock), Robinson(lock), White(position battle), Sweeting(position battle and spot)
S: Jenkins(lock), Harper(lock), Vaccaro(lock), Bush(lock), IAQ (bubble; position battle and spot)

Special Teams
K: Hartley(lock)
P: Morstead(lock)
LS: Drescher(lock)

Bubble Cuts
HB Cadet, FB Austin(PS), WR Tanner(PS if eligible), OG/T Jones(PS), OG/C Olsen, OG/C Tiller(PS), DE Johnson, OLB Atkins, CB Carr, S Nelson (PS), S Leonhard

QB Griffin will be PS but he's not under bubble cuts because he is not making the 53.

Position battle means they are fighting with someone at the same position whereas spot means they are fighting with someone at another position.

A few of my cuts came down to special teams. Tanner and Leonhard just miss out because their special teams play isn't as good as the others. None of the 3 bubble safeties have shown much on defense but IAQ has been getting more looks so I'm giving him the edge.

Jones is cut because he can't back up the center spot and you need that. Harris has outplayed him(Harris jumped from 3rd to 2nd string RT and after a couple of injuries Jones got back on the 2nd string as a guard).

I think Reddick gets the nod because of Vilma's health. If Vilma is IRed I think we take another OLB(Atkins).

re: My New 53 Man Roster Projection


Vilma can't be PUP because he practiced in training camp before getting hurt. Same as Morgan.

We can take Butler into the season on PUP(his injury was in OTAs) so he hasn't been and won't take up a spot until week 10 I think. Then we see where he's at.
