With the season now in the rearview mirror – though some would say not far enough behind with wounds still open – we believe at WWLTV.com it’s time to hit on our yearly “roster check,” our assessment of who should be or should not be with the club come training camp in July.

We don’t think this will help close the wound that the playoff game opened. It might, in fact, open it more and for that we apologize.

For the next few work days, we’ll go position group by position group (secondary, linebackers, defensive line, offensive line and skill players) and give our opinions on the players and situations.

Defensive Line
Ends: Will Smith, Jeff Charleston, Junior Galette, Cameron Jordan, Turk McBride
Linemen: Aubrayo Franklin, Shaun Rogers, Sedrick Ellis, Tom Johnson

Rodgers and Ellis need to be cut. Bring in 2 more DT's 1or both in the draft, I can see Spags. bringing in 1 in FA. We need a much needed push in the middle. As the DE's go, Smith can go, entirely to much money being paid out for his lack of production, Romeus will start in 4 games or less. I think Chaleston is a quality back-up and may take a hit with Spags. I hope the lb.'s are next.

Stays - Will Smith, Cam Jordan, Junior Galette, Sedrick Ellis

Everyone else can be replaced, and their jobs are not safe at all.

Cut: Smith, Franklin, Mcbride, Charleston I would cut Jordan if last year wasn't his rookie year.

That 3 of our top 5 D-linemen.

Wouldn't you rather keep them and see how they play under Spagnuolo?

No doubt we have dead weight on the defense. I feel sure Spags will weed them out. I agree with waiting to see who will flurish in the new scheme.

I like Jabari Greer always have... Malcomn Jenkins can stay too....
Patrick Robinson can go... I'm tired of seeing the in a 3rd and 6ish and he lines up 10 yards off them.
Get old watching them run, turn, catch, convert!
