Maurice Alexander is a LB - does he get cut or go in a special “ST” category?

Edmunds, L Alexander, Milano locks..after that Thompson, Stanford, Lacey and assuming PS doesnt count, add  Joseph to the practice squad

 

While I think that Stanford/Lacey have outplayed Joseph, I dont see them cutting him (a 5th rd pick) to try and stash him on the PS, his upside is too high

I pretty much agree. Might be a toss up between Joseph & Lacey..

He was 5th rd I think but I agree, he will make it because of the draft position over a guy who was signed off the waiver wire or street last year.

Wow this is going to be an interesting one. Lacey has come a really long way in a year, Alexander they like for specials, Stanford I've been thinking will make it to be safe at the Mike and Joseph has the upside. I thought they'd keep 7 but now 2 of those 4 have to go. I think Maurice Alexander is out but interested to see who the other is

Thompson's versatility might push the Morax or even Stanford off the roster.    Lacy been playing with his dome on fire in the games.

Past the starters, I could see any combination of the rest rounding out the 6. Except Dodson, I think he is a clear PS stash. 

 

As always, how they fit into ST plans will be a large factor.

Last time I saw Mike Tice, he was pounding drinks at Sideline Sports bar the night before the Bills Raiders game in 2017. Looked like hell. Guess the O line coach didn't need to be overly on his game that day. Knew Carr was going to get buried.

He probably had a bad day at the races.  The guy's a bigger horse racing degenerate than I am.

Zo

Milano

Edmunds

Thompson

 

Think those 4 are all but in. Mo Alexander I think has a leg up because he plays teams. So then it comes down to Lacey, Stanford and Joseph for one spot.

If you read through all the postings here, you'll find one in favor of keeping 7 LB's, another for 9 Def lineman, another for 6 to 7 WR, another recommending 10 O-lineman, one for 5 TE, and another for 5 RB

 

Some posters won't be very happy next week!

Lorax

Milano

Edmunds

Thompson - plays both outside backer spots

Stanford - backup Mike

Joseph - 5th rd pick plus STs 

 

Lacy gets short end of stick.  Nice preseason

Yea the reality is the normal balance is: 

 

2 QB

4 RB (including a FB)

6 WR

3 TE

9 OL

- - - - -

8 DL

6 LB

10 DB

- - - - -

3 ST

 

That gets you to 51. Which leaves you 2 wildcards. Now does a team sometimes go light at a position to allow themselves to keep an extra man somewhere else? Yep. But they are not going to deviate by more than a spot or two.
