On the bubble ... Derek Dimke
Years in the NFL: 1
Acquired: Free agency (2014)
Career highlights: In college, he was the most accurate kicker in Illinois history, making 39-of-46 field goal attempts (84.8 percent). He was 7-of-8 on field goals over the 2012 and 2013 preseasons, kicking for Detroit and Tampa Bay; but he fell short of either roster.
Strengths: He’s shown an accurate leg in training camp, connecting on all his tries.
Must improve on: Strength. At times, it seems veteran Shayne Graham’s kicking a bit stronger than he is.
Projection: Dimke could make it hard for him to get cut if he keeps it up. Graham has missed two kicks. Dimke has missed one.
Ramon Antonio Vargas
Physically unable to perform: Jenkins
Did not participate: Brees, Hull, Grubbs,Foster, Nsekhe, Lorig, Bailey, Butler, Weaver, Stills, Hamm
