    I don’t see us keeping 10 OL because of the versatility among the OL. I will agree of the 10 players you selected, but one will probably be on some type of IR list before regular season starts.

    I believe we are forced to carry an extra TE because of previous history with two of our TE’s; we’ll also carry an extra Safety until we find two good ones.

      Agree….Safety position needs addressing and we will carry extra there, not on the OL. Versatility on the line will make it easier to carry 9.

    Am I to take from the answer to question 4 that Stocker may lose his roster spot with the arrival of Vitale? I like Stocker for his role, but if Vitale can play that role and more, I could understand us saving the roster spot and letting him go be someone else’s blocking specialist.

    My instinct, though, is that Vitale should be the fullback in goal line and jumbo sets, which still leaves room for Stocker to be an extra blocking tight end in those jumbo packages.

  4. 4


    No we should not carry 10 OL. We also need to keep Stocker. Should Vitale go down Stocker would be his backup.

    They cut brandon Myers before stocker, he is a waste of space and I scratch my head as to why he is even here.
