    (I left off people I didn't think were going to be around anyway.)

    QB - Vince Young, Kerry Collins (2)
    RB - LenDale White, Chris Henry (2)
    OL - Roos, Bell, Mawae, Olson, Stewart (5)
    OL - Amano, Harris, Otto, Wand, Loper (5)
    WR - Jones, P.Williams, R. Williams, Gage, Roby (5)
    WR - Orr, Davis, Filani, Givens (PUP) (4)
    TE - Scaife, Troupe, Hartsock, Cramer (4)
    FB - Hall (1)

    28 players


    DT - Haynesworth, Starks, Long, Brown, Mahelona, Johnson (6)
    DE - KVB, LaBoy, Odom, Ford (4)
    LB - Bulluck, Thornton, Fowler, Tulloch (4)
    LB - Reynolds, Nande, Amato, Woods (4)
    CB - Harper, Hill, Waddell, Woolfolk, King, Smith, Griffin, Jones (susp) (8/7)
    S - Hope, Finnegan, Thompson, Scott, Nickey, Lowry, Fuller (7)

    32 players


    K - Bironas (1)
    P - Hentrich (1)

    2 players

    Total is 62 players. Nine have to be cut/ moved.

    Cuts


    Seth Wand/Loper - I think it'll probably be Wand
    Bryan Scott...but wish it was Lamont
    Roydell Williams
    Andre Woolfolk
    Casey Cramer
    Eric King
    LeVar Woods
    Michael Waddell
    Givens is PUP (I included him in my count)


    Just guessing what the final roster will look like. I have to write it out somewhere. It's kind of hard to do. We're going to have to be giving up on some people this summer. I would have trimmed the DT position, but without real upgrades yet, and considering all except Brown are draft picks, I have a hard time guessing which way to go. Brown was a real playmaker I thought, last year, and he is listed as a tweener, DT/DE. Size wise, he's on par with Mahelona, weighing a little less. But as a tweener, he might be competing with Rien Long. Not sure how it's going to turn out, but thought I should leave that position alone for a while. I do believe that Conover and Savage will be released. There's just no room for Woolfolk, King or Waddell, unless they outplay someone, and I can't see them outplaying Harper, Griffin, Finnegan, or Hill and Smith has a pass, or we have room for a STer. At WR (sucks) Roby has more value than R. Williams, who I really want to see develop, but alas.... And I think Orr may have more speed than anyone on the team currently (P.Williams? Jones?) so I was loathe to cut him.

    Well I'll give a guess.

    QB - Vince Young, Kerry Collins (2)
    RB - LenDale White, Chris Henry, some vet (3)
    OL - Roos, Bell, Mawae, Olson, Stewart (5)
    OL - Amano, Harris, Otto (3)
    WR - Jones, P.Williams, Roby (3)
    WR - Orr, Davis, Filani, Givens (PUP) (4)
    TE - Scaife, Troupe, Hartsock (3)
    FB - Hall (1)

    24 players


    DT - Haynesworth, Starks, Long, Brown, Mahelona, Johnson (6)
    DE - KVB, LaBoy, Odom, Ford (4)
    LB - Bulluck, Thornton, Fowler, Tulloch (4)
    LB - Reynolds, Nande, Amato (3)
    CB - Harper, Hill, Waddell, Smith, Griffin, Jones (susp) (6/5)
    S - Hope, Finnegan, Thompson, Lowry, Fuller (5)

    27 players


    K - Bironas (1)
    P - Hentrich (1)

    Maybe a d-line gets cut (Mahelona, Long, Brown, or even Johnson) to keep an o-line (Otto, Wand, Loper).

    If Givens is Pup'd, maybe Gage or Williams makes it. I'm not excited about Gage, and Roydell has never looked very impressive with his opporitunities. Roby's ST's ability would give him an advantage I think.

    I guess maybe Ganther could look decent and get the nod for a Holcombe type 2-way role.

    There's probably going to be some vet signings to throw this all off :yes: And I wonder if the league will up the roster # any time soon? I think they did a few years ago, right?

    ^ Good list.

    Thats what I would guess.

    Bryan Scott is going to stick around tho.

    BTW.

    I probably already know this but what is PUP

    Based on the cuts above, I feel as though we are losing nobody important. I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. But I tend to like it.
