I like the Baraka cut...

Good list... injuries still may make a difference in how this plays out.

Re: My pre-Texans 53 man roster, with surprises

There's definitely some surprising cuts there.

I think it would be smart to keep another OT just incase. I'd keep Quddus over Sweeting and let Jenkins/Vaccaro provide the depth at corner. I'd also keep Tom Johnson over one of Richardson/Walker. Will Herring can take a hike too.

CB - Rod Sweeting (Toss up with Chris Carr)

watch sweeting working in punt returns. he is doing a great job teaming up and taking out the gunner on his side. now if we can find the right mix on the other side we will be looking good.

so far it is Sweeting job. add to his cap friendly numbers and i say Carr has his work cut out for himself

Re: My pre-Texans 53 man roster, with surprises

Interesting Danno. Not a bad list, only 2 I question is Roby and Vilma unless Vilma's knee is that bad off i don't see him being cut. I need to see replay from Friday and this weeks game with Roby on ST to see if he sticks or not.

Re: My pre-Texans 53 man roster, with surprises

I don't think Herring beats out Reddick, and I also have a feeling that Johnson is headed to the practice squad. Also, I would honestly rather see Harper get cut and Abdul-Quddus make the team, but I'm sure there are several that feel similarly. For my "surprise cut", I'm feeling like it's a lot more likely that Will Smith is the veteran that becomes the "odd man out". His coverage ability has been atrocious, & we have too many up and comers at DE. Just my $.02.
