It was hard to take Luke McCown off the roster, but I think with how Gabbert's performed so far it could be a viable option. Taking Zach Potter was difficult as well, but necessary since I think the team will take 3 FBs into the season. Will Rackley will be the starter at LG for about the next 10-12 years so I figure might as well start him early like the Jags did with Derek Cox and Terrance Knighton. Also I think Rackley has the desire and the talent necessary to start early. At corner I left William Middleton on the roster because of his added special teams value. I put Chris Prosinski as the starter at FS simply because we have no one else who can play there (outside of Don Carey, of course) and because he's be playing with the first team defense at practice. My real hope is that Dawan Landry can play FS and Courtney Greene can start at SS, where I believe he has a future.

Now on to the Practice squad...
