Since Richardson can play both DE & OLB, it wouldn't surprise me if that meant Quddus or Shipman over Atkins.

He's not doing so well this camp. He's running with the scrubs.

Maybe so, if I made this last year Quddus would be a lock. He's just looked bad so far this year.

Atkins is one I'm not all that fired up about. I could could easily justify IAQ over Atkins based on his play last year.

I'll probably revise it before final cutdowns. I also keep thinking Marcel Jones makes it as a 5th OT over Lelito or Olsen as a 5th OG.

I think Jones edges out Olsen. I also think Quddus finds a way onto this 53. Could it be Sweeting that makes way for him?

Comfortable not seeing Ryan Griffin up there for obvious footballing reasons but if we waive him, we have got to be confident is he coming back in our practice squad! Can we not falsify an x-ray and put him on IR :)

Yeah, we may find out that Reddick, Sweeting, RJohnson, Griffin, Lelito, and Shipman all clear waiver and sign on to our practice squad.

We have a tendancy to over-value our fringe rookies.

I think that is largely a pre-season excitement and because we are seeing the squad as a whole. Hey if each of us had a penny for every player we saw and said 'he's gonna be big' who is now well and truly NOT in the NFL, I am guessing we would all be pretty rich :)

Re: My SWAG at the 53 man roster
 
I agree with all of that but idk i have a feeling they will keep roby for some reason unknown to man and i think for robinson to edge out cadet he has to have a monster game tonight.


Who let this IRA mothersucker in my bar?

Re: My SWAG at the 53 man roster
 
I am on board fully with Danno's scientific wild azzed guess.

Unless Robinson has shown then some reason of why he is not ready Cadet is gone. The contest will not be decided on skill as they are very close, the determining factor will be ball security, and Cadet has not given anyone warm fuzzies. The gorilla in the tent on the decisions on most ball handling positions is making the choice that will not hurt us in a turn over battle.

Roby is done. hate to say it but Tanner provides twice the value WR/ST...
