How many of the 53 on opening day aren’t on the team today?

Recommended Posts

I’ve read a lot of threads and stories about which current Bills make the 53-man roster opening day. My question is, how many of the opening day 53 aren’t yet on this team?

 

As teams release players, the Bills will too and could scoop up players from other rosters as upgrades. I think the Bills will do this less than in previous years, when the roster wasn’t as deep as it is today.

 

My guess, there will be 3 players on the 53 that aren’t on the roster today...hopefully one of them is the punter. ;)

Maybe 2 if Hauschka still has the yips.

I see them signing 1 player waived.  A punter.  Barring a trade I dont a position void of talent.

I can see a new punter, a trade for a significant upgrade (Clowney?) and picking up an better backup O-lineman that we currently have on the roster (center?). That’s my 3.

I see a REAL 3rd string QB and NO punter.

Punter and possibly a swing tackle if Nsekhe's knee continues to be an issue.  Jordan Mills just got cut...JUST KIDDING do not kick tires!

2: Punter, and a pass rusher who gets cut, or Clowney!!!

 

Also, Perhaps a RB.  We don't have any.

All I can see is punter for sure and maybe swing tackle.

Like everyone else, I believe our punter is not on the team now. I also see them looking for a 3rd string QB.  I think you need someone who is on the team and can come up to speed with the system in a week in case of injury to Allen or Barkley.  Our current 3rd string is not up to playing this year.

A 3rd string for practice squad not 53.

 

Punter - for sure.

I agree that a punter is very likely, but I would like to see another "bonus" player acquired that improves the team.

 

Quality talent is going to be cut from almost every team and there will be good players available, simply b/c the numbers didn't work out.

 

Watching Houston pre-season game and their announcers were going on about how they have 5 high quality TEs and how they are not all going to make the team, and someone out there will be picking up a good player on the cheap.

 

There are situations like that all around the league.

 

I'd like to see us grab one of those guys.

On the 53? No way. They will only have two QBs. They need that extra spot for linemen or WR.

Maybe punter but I think the rest of the roster will come from the current 90. My original 53 had a backup MLB being added and Darryl Johnson on the PS. I think Johnson makes it to the 53 and Lorax becomes the back up MLB in a pinch. They will carry one less LB and one more DL or OL.

I would be shocked if it was more than 1, and 0 is possible.   They could use a spot or two to churn the guys who get waived though.  It is an interesting question because one thing I am certain of is poeple here will be  calling for McBeane to b fired over the WR's and RB's that get waived or possibly traded.

I think one is probably the most likely #.  2 at most.

I'll go 1 - Punter....2 only if a really good WR gets released....I don't think Clowney is heading to Buffalo so DE will also be if a really good one gets cut

 

so most likely 1 with a possibility of 2 to 3

I think Bates is your backup C right now.
