Nobody that major is being cut after training camp (even JA98). The big cuts will come after the preseason.

Chevis Jackson is not eligible for the practice squad so I would keep him on the roster. We're not going to carry 11 OL. Ojinnaka will be cut and Romberg probably will be too.

I'm not sure Lindholm will clear waivers if he has a good preseason. Some team could sign him as a kickoff specialist/developmental guy but it's probably the best option.

I doubt Weems gets cut.

I'd possibly add Brandyn Harvey, Wolfe, Jose Valdez, Palmer, Bush to the practice squad.

Dang, I didn't realize I put that many OLs on the roster, with Romberg and Ojinnaka gone, that frees up a spot for Jackson and possibility another DT. Also, I think Svitek could possibly be cut as well...that would free up another spot for either Wolfe or Schillinger. I think the coaches would like to have some better depth at WR this year. With the injuries to Douglas, Jenkins, and Finneran last year, I think having 6 WRs on the roster won't hurt. Oh, and I know in the title it said "after training camp" but I really meant the final roster going into the season.

James won't make it.

Don't ignore the possibility that Hawley may become the long snapper & a spot freed up where Zelenka was.

Valdez could make the 53 this year. They had him on the 2nd team at RG behind Dahl in mini camp & he looked really good. The guy is gigantic.

I really don't see Finn getting cut either. Harvey did well in minicamp & we're already replacing Finn for him, a UDFA? I don't think so. We'll see what happens when real training camp gets going.

This is a stretch, but we also can't eliminate the possibility of JPW being cut & Meier doing some small amount of cross-training at QB. The chances of Ryan AND Redman going down in the same game is like one in a million. We just signed Ward because he looked really good in minicamp. So it's possible we cut JPW & send Ward to PS.

Antone Smith has a great shot of making the team aswell. And I think Klecko & Giordano can't be so easily dismissed either.

To Durrty RE Svitek, I think he makes the roster because he is the only LOT behind Baker,

and Baker usually misses some time each year.

TO Beef Jerky RE JPW, I think JPW is eligible for the PS so put him there instead of cutting

him and keeping Ward. Reason DJ Shockley was the emergency QB in 06, on IR 07, Emergency

QB in 08 and went to the PS in 09. If he could do it surely JPW can.

LB if Weatherspoon does start, I "guess" Peterson will backup Lofton at MLB and James may go back to the PS.

I "guess" they keep 5 DEs - the same 5 as 09 and onlt 4 DTs, Babs, Jerry, Peters and a fight between Walker and Johnson for #4. I think T. Lewis is gone.

you guys need to wake up , nicholas will lose his job before pete

Agree 100%. Peterson gives us the best chance to win. He should start the season at one of the OLB spots. If he declines at some point the staff will make a switch. But by all accounts he still looked like our best OLB in the recent mini camp.

I do not agree with their rating system at all but just to put it out there

Pro Football Focus does rate ALL the OLB as

#32 Nicholas

#109 Peterson

EDIT

if you only look at OLBs that played 25% of the snaps or more

#24 Nicholas

#50 Peterson

we should keep 9 DL with jerry coming back slowly. if they hope to start year with jerry as #5 DT and progressing to starter as he recovers, you do not need john henderson. JA98 plays a prominent role because he can play inside or outside. he would be on the trading block for me though in the hopes of adding a DT that is a better fit for our team.

RDE-abraham, biermann

RDT-________, walker, jerry

LDT-babinaux, peters

LDE-davis, sidbury

can anderson play RDT?

Pete is the unquestioned leader of our entire D, guys like that are not back ups bro.... no way does he lose out to Nicolas trust me....

I think that "starter" on the D isn't going to mean much. I expect heavy rotation at all 3 levels. Peterson, Weatherspoon and Nicholas will all get plenty of snaps at LB, teams play so many 3-4 wide receiver sets that nickle and dime CBs will see a lot of action, they rotated DLine almost every play last year.

If Jerry, Moore and/or Weathespoon can be the playmaker this team needs on D, then this team can be very good on D.

wheres fin

and do you really think pete wont be in the starting lb core ?????

please lol

In this case, the importance of who's starting doesn't really matter. I think the coaches will rotate Peterson in at every LB position to not only relieve the players, but to also keep him fresh. Most of his snaps in his rotation will be at the WLB position though. As for Finneran, we have two WRs that will be challenging him for a spot. Finneran's speed and his ability to cut have diminished due to injuries. Meier has looked good thus far and presents the best challenge.

Thomas Johnson will not make this roster over JA98

Even though Smitty mentioned that Anderson will be rotated in at the DT and DE positions this year, I still believe others will impress more and beat him out. Anderson hasn't shown the motivation to be on this team. Johnson and Walker came in last year and produced at a higher level than Anderson did in 3 yrs. I think it's just time we part ways with this guy.

To Durrty RE Svitek, I think he makes the roster because he is the only LOT behind Baker,

and Baker usually misses some time each year.

I agree. As for Dahl, we have a few versatile OLs to back him up at the RG position.

How hasn't JA98 shown the motivation to be on this team? He was asked to gain 15lbs to move inside. This would be his 4th position change in his entire football career (WR, TE, DE, DT). Just because he hasn't produced shouldn't diminish his motivation. He isn't a Jamarcus Russell size bust, he is a bust in the wrong system and we all know that. Don't discount the kid. I think he will be a lot better at DT because of his size and strength, he just didn't have the competency to play DE in the league.
