3QB, 4RB, 1FB, 8OL, 6WR, 4TE = 1 too many.

Gotta drop someone.

I thought I read somewhere that if a team keeps 3QB's they get an extra roster spot. If so, that could help us.

I think thats active gameday. 45 players plus an extra 3rd QB if you have one.

We can still only have a 53 man team roster.

Ivory looks promising but I'm holding out judgement until he plays in a real game where juking and stiff arming 8 defenders just ain't gonna happen. What scares me about him is he may try and create something when defenses tighten up and put shame on himself where Betts would know better. Then again, Betts likely would not hold up the entire season and we would be on the car lot again in mid season. I say keep both of em' and look at thinning our receivers.

I can see us keeping 4 RBs with the injury history at the position. As far as running the wildcat, Payton has already said he doesn't really want to take the ball out of Drew Brees' hands, and I don't blame him. WR is probably the position they're looking at. You saw them try out Arrington in special teams, if he could do both he has a much better shot to make the team. Some of these guys who are on the bubble need to be able to play special teams and a position, so I think it'll come down to that.

I really dont believe Arrington will flurish in the return game .Chris "poison" Ivory will earn everything he gets. IMO props to our scouting team for finding a dam good RB that the other 31 teams failed to.

I don't know. Arrington didn't look very good in the return game against the Chargers.

I agree it's like he's just too lanky and lacks the shiftiness needed..now once he gets going it may be a different story but from non moving position waiting for the ball to fall out the sky,his initial start up doesn't look too hot.what about that one return he just hit the deck where I thought he had enough room to get some yds.
