    Well there's also Tolbert, frankly we normally keep just 3 pure HB with Tolbert as a HB/FB. 
    I'm thinking they could keep 5, but I'm just not sure where they make up for it. Webb? 5 receivers? Not sure.

    Fozzy over Wegher. 
    Cotchery definitely stays. As down as I am on Philly, between Funchess, Cotchery, Bersin, and Norwood...we really need some speed aside from just Ginn. 
    Not sure on Cox, Horton, and even Miley. We usually carry 5 DEs so maybe both. 
    DT really depends on health. If Star is cleared we may go with no one, but a developmental guy like Redden could sick. If Star is still struggling then we keep the game-ready vet in Love. 
    LB is insane with 9 guys really worthy of a spot on most teams (I'd say Reddick was too). The rooks Mayo and Blechen are likely practice squad bound, the rest is a tossup. Trusnik probably sticks for special teams, and then I guess Glanton over Jacobs? Really tough call. Still think we should see what we could get for Klein. 
    Williams v. Simonson...maybe neither. I like what Lucas has shown.

    Can't see them keeping more than 26 on offense, gotta have some bodies for the defense. Probably some combination of 9-10 DL, 5-6 LB, 8-10 DB for a total of 24 on defense. As for the offense:
    3 QB (Personally I'd drop Webb for another RB or WR)
    4 RB: Stewart, Tolbert, CAP, Todman
    6 WR: Funchess, Cotchery, Ginn, Bersin, Philly, Norwood
    4 TE: Olsen, Dickson, Lucas, Bricker
    9 OL: Kalil, Norwell, Turner, Oher, Remmers, Williams, Scott, Silatolu, Chandler
    26 offense, 24 defense

    Uh...that's pretty common. Like, we've carried 4 each Gettleman year thus far, and probably before that.

  5. jdpanther5 added a post in a topic Panthers Comp. Pick Question   

    Remember, once the initial 10-game suspension came down, we were pretty much DOA because recent history indicates players need to play at least 10 games to qualify...but then Domenik Hixon, who retired after sustaining his 3rd ACL tear in camp, somehow counted toward our picks this past year.
    No one knows the exact calculation, but it's probably moot. We originally broke even, gaining Tillman, Coleman, and Trusnik while "losing" Hardy, Bell, and Dockery. That already put us at a disadvantage, as every team that has gotten compensatory picks lost more players than they gained. 
    Since then Dockery has been cut, so we're now one in the hole. Bell is a cut candidate as well, while Coleman and Tillman aren't going anywhere, and Trusnik is probably more likely to be kept too.

    Missed this yesterday, but the Raiders cut James Dockery. This is relevant to our compensatory pick situation. This leaves Byron Bell and Greg Hardy as the only UFAs we "lost," which puts us in a hole given that we signed 3.
    Nothing is definite with the mysterious compensatory pick formula, but it's largely accepted that gaining as many or more UFAs as you lost = no compensatory picks. 
    The only chance we have is to cut two of Coleman, Trusnik, and Tillman, and hope Bell survives the next round of cuts. Basically, it's not happening.

    What a weird standard to have. There are a total of 3 defensive players with contracts in excess of $100m.

    Of course, or trade a conditional pick for them.

    The 75
    Though most sites tend to list players alphabetically, it's always easier for me to process the state of the roster when viewing by position. Figured this would be a good reference to have on the Huddle as well. Here's who we have at each position as we close in on the 53:
    Quaterbacks (3)
    Newton, Anderson, Webb
    Running Backs (6)
    Stewart, Artis-Payne, Whittaker, Todman, Wegher, Tolbert (HB/FB)
    Wide Receivers (8)
    Funchess, Cotchery, Ginn, Bersin, Philly Brown, Mike Brown, Norwood, Byrd
    Tight Ends (6)
    Olsen, Dickson, Brandon Williams, Lucas, Brockel (TE/FB), Simonson (TE/FB)
    Offensive Line (14)
    Centers (3): Kalil, Folkerts, McCray (C/G)
    Guards (5): Turner, Norwell, Silatolu (G/T), Scott, Henry
    Tackles (6): Oher, Remmers, Daryl Williams, Chandler, Martin Wallace (T/G), Foucault
    Defensive Line (13)
    Tackles (7): Lotulelei, Short, Cole, Edwards, Love, Redden, Alecxih
    Ends (6): Johnson, Ealy, Addison, Horton, Cox, Miley
    Linebackers (9)
    Kuechly, Davis, Thompson, Klein, Jacobs, Trusnik, Mayo, Glanton, Blechen 
    Defensive Backs (13)
    Corners (7): Norman, Benwikere, Tillman, Heath, Teddy Williams, Byndom, Young
    Safeties (6): Harper, Coleman, Boston, Jones, Marlowe, Ball
    Specialists (3)
    Gano, Nortman, Jansen

    Looks like Reddick was claimed by the Bills.

    We're on the same page. A lot of local media are saying that Kelvin to IR counted toward getting to 75, but that doesn't quite add up when you see other guys getting waive/injured or getting settlements. 
    They definitely cut 8 a few days ago, going from 89 active to 81, but then added Norwood (82). They cut another 7 today, but one Presley was inactive, so that's only 6 active cuts (76). 
    This is where they're saying putting Kelvin on IR counts as the 75th, but everything I've read says you can't IR someone until AFTER you've cut to 75 (which explains why White and Wallace were waived/injured instead of just placed on IR).
    It has to be something with the Norwood trade, otherwise we'd still have one too many.

    I'm pretty confused that we were able to IR Benjamin but had to waive/injure White and Wallace. Voth thinks we did it because we don't care if they're claimed, but that doesn't add up as then we would have reached a settlement with them a la Regis. 
    Look at Jacksonville, they cut down to 75 early and then were able to IR Fowler and Wells 3 days ago. They had to cut to 75 first then IR those guys, leaving them at 73. So I don't think it's just a timing thing. With 89 active, we had to cut 14, which we did, plus a 15th in Presley even though we didn't have to. 
    That WOULD be 75, but then we added Norwood, so then that's 76 before sending Kelvin to IR. Per my Jacksonville example, it doesn't seem like that would be allowed. Best I can figure is we have a temporary waiver for Norwood, and he didn't count toward our roster count just yet.

    I was gonna say it's actually 4 more since we added Norwood, but you just forgot Tony Hills. I haven't seen the Glanton thing yet, so I'm assuming still 3 more.
