    Well, if there were to be a 4th, it'd be JP, but I just don't want to have a drop off. I'd almost rather run the big 3 until they can't see straight. Special teams will be what secures Payton, but I still think we're going to be down 2 TEs all year. I also think Hall will get carries, which is why I left Payton off the final roster.

    I agree with that. Another reason I wouldn't keep Payton. I might keep 2 FBs. Not many of those dudes can go deep, and Fleming sure can. And why don't you let the 2nd leading rusher in high school football get some real carries every now and again? Not sure I ever understood that.

    Are we interested in Grady Jackson, Gary Walker or Brentson Buckner to fill out our D? Nice thread by the way Glinks.

    Orr is too good for the practice squad, I'd have him active instead of small. Schobel is a bust, Dolphins picked up D Wilkinson for $3 mill over 3 yrs & he looked good on saturday. Time to can some of our bubble players & try some old vets

    Thank you childress. The only thing I saw that made me shake my head was keeping OJ Small. We're not getting rid of orr, he's a special teams player and a draft pick. Small can still be on the practice squad. I think we'd keep Orr even if we can't PUP Jones.

    Nice post- I suspect Roydell Williams might be traded for a young DE prospect...you still have 6 pretty good receivers...Givens, Bennett, Wade, Jones, Roby, Orr...I also see us picking up another O line vet to replace Pillar, and start Bell at LG and Stewart at RT.. not sure what to say about Olsen.

    I don't know that we'll even PUP Jones. Isn't he supposed to be almost healthy now? I know we don't want to rush him, but still...Orr is a keeper, Small maybe not.

    I also think it's time to write a check for some solid vet DL's. Not stars, mind you, but somebody (like Daddy Wilkinson would've been) who can come in a contribute. We've got some cap space, so why not?

    Who gives us anything for Williams? He's unproven as is Roby. I don't see any trade value there. Reese MUST find some quality DL/DE depth. Schobel is gone unless Odom goes to the PUP. Reese will be all over the waiver wire.

    The decision to keep Piller/Olson at guard was made long ago. I don't think they will shake this up now.

    We don't have any trade material outside our RB's, so we're going to have to look to the waiver wire or current FA's, imo.
