    CB: Taylor - G.ay - Townsend - Madison - Lewis - Burnett
    FS: Clark - Mundy
    SS: Polamalu - Carter

    K: Reed
    P: Sepulveda
    LS: Warren

    Practice Squad:
    DE Ra'Shon Harris
    TE David Johnson
    QB Mike Reilly
    RB Isaac Redman
    WR Tyler Grisham
    OT Ramon Foster
    ILB Tom Korte
    S Derrick Richardson

    That's 53 players and 8 on the PS.

    Those who don't make it are:

    QB Kevin McCabe
    RB Justin Vincent
    RB Stefan Logan
    FB Ryan Powdrell
    WR Dallas Baker

    ILB Larry Foote
    ILB Andrew Schantz
    CB Fernando Bryant
    CB Roy Lewis
    CB Keiwan Ratliff
    LS Jarek Retkofsky

    That's 7 out of our 9 picks making the team, and the other 2 are on the PS.

      You have all brand new guys on the Practice Squad...since when does that happen?

      There is always a 2nd or 3rd year guy on there, because that is how the growing process works with these 7th rounders / UDFA's.

        Evander Hood is going to be #96.

                You took the thread I was going to start before training camp started.

                  I thought the coaching staff was pretty high on Baker too... I mean I guess they all can't make it though. It's so nice to see Sep back on there. And how do you think kick and punt returns shake out this year?


                  Thank you Jimmy for the sig.

                    For the PS, I just put the guys who seem like the best UDFA's. Didn't really consider Nance and others, partially because they have some experience in the league and the newbies don't, giving them more time to develop. I guess that factor can work for or against them.

                    And how do you think kick and punt returns shake out this year?
                    Compared to last year, I think we have much, MUCH, better returners in our team this year. Guys who can return are:

                    Mewelde Moore
                    Rashard Mendenhall
                    Santonio Holmes
                    Stefan Logan
                    Mike Wallace
                    Joe Burnett
                    Brandon Williams

                    Maybe some of the UDFA's.

                    I think that the best returners right now are:

                    Santonio Holmes
                    Stefan Logan
                    Mike Wallace
                    Joe Burnett

                    Holmes proved his talent in the post-season. Logan was a great returner in the CFL. Both Burnett and Wallace broke many records in NCAA.

                    In other words, the return game just got a good boost.

                      Tyler Grisham is a scrawny White possession WR from Clemson, he was overshadowed by Jacoby Ford and Aaron Kelly, but the guy was one of the most clutch receivers..

                      Probably behind Nicks, Robiskie, Dillard.

                      Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

                        We cut long snapper Jared Retkofsky. Now we have two guys, Greg Warren and UDFA Mark Estermyer.

                        http://www.timesonline.com/articles/...f113410178.txt

                        Supposedly Estermyer is a "student of long snapping," who looks at a ton of film and is, as Scott put it, "the football equivalent of a gym rat."

                        His contract is half of what Warren earns, so do you guys think the team sacrifices experience for a little cap room?

                          it all depends on camp, if estermyer can perform just as well as warren, then we will use that cap room

                          if warren is still better, then i think we keep him

                            I am excited to see Hills play this training camp. I think if he performs well, he could be our RT after the upcoming season and we will let Colon walk. I read that he got bigger and stronger. That could really help our offensive line. Plus, Essex could play all five spots along the offensive line. How about we try him at C or RG?

                              We signed P Dirk Johnson, WR Shaun McDonald, Piotr Czech, along with Ratliff. Not Lelie, but I like McDonald.

                              Edit: Czech and Johnson will only be competition for Reed and Sepulveda. I don't think Ratliff makes the team after our moves at cornerback, and I hope we save a spot for Madison still.
