    If we keep 3 QB’s and 6 LB’s then the extra OL won’t be able to put Gottschalk on the roster. This kid has a good chance to make it in the NFL as a starting Center next season for some team. Griffin & Vitale have to show something Thursday night. There is no way Vitale could replace ASJ, Brate, Stocker and we have had 2 of those 3 injured at one time before. Who cares if Griffin isn’t elligible for the PS.

      agreed i say just let Griffin go and use his roster spot for depth somewhere else

    To respond to Robert Gordon’s question, who realizes there is always a surprise or two at final roster time, Mark named Ryan Smith whose place on the 53 is all but assured. I dounbt that would be a surprise to anyone. A surprise is when an obscure undrafted free agent makes the roster. Like Horse’s choice of Ben Gottschalk. Josh Allen is another candidate. After weeks of Training Camp and three exhibition games, I don’t know if one more showing will change what is probably already determined.

    I am glad to get some news on Smith’s progress. LT is all important. It looks as though with the versatility of several players we have adequate depth on the OL going into the season. I had overlooked Josh Allen as I hadn’t heard much about him until recently.
    As I mentioned elsewhere, today, I wonder if the Bucs anticipate that Glennon may well be traded before this season is over.
    Go Bucs!!!
