I'll start off by saying it was extremely difficult to cut this roster down to 53, and I don't envy Gene Smith's job. As you will notice I cut Bolen because although talented as he is unless we become decimated with injuries at that position he would never see the field and I felt depth would be better served at another position.
Next you will notice I have Newsome as our 6th WR, but I feel that could easily be Binns or Inman. It will probably come down to who has the best preseason of the three.
Also I have decided to keep 5 OT and no back-up Center. My reasoning is because Haslem can probably play guard as good as he can play Tackle if not better and if Meester goes down I think Spitz would move to Center with Rackley taking his Guard spot.
On defense I'll start off by saying that the 4th DT spot is easily repalced by Douzable, Collins, or even someone they pick up after final cuts.
The rest of the defense is pretty straightforward with not much surprise. And yes I do believe we keep Carey for at least 1 more year.
So let me know what you think with comments, criticisms, or praise.
