I realize this ship has sailed, but I was catching up on my reading, and I thought this comment needed a bit of expanding/ I agree, and here is why: Marlowe has a chance to become a complete S, while Harper and Jones are rather one-dimensional. Marlowe has a bunch of technique work to get down, but when he does, I see Marlowe, Boston, and Coleman as the future at S-and a pretty good group.
CUTS (10) Miley, Arthur DE Young, Lou CB Alecxih, Chas DT Redden, Terry DT McCray, Jordan G Henry, Ricky G Blechen, Brian LB Ball, Marcus S Foucault, David T Brown, Mike WR
Bubble boys (8 must go)
Brandon Williams, Scott Simonson, and Marcus Lucas TEs--If we keep a TE not named Olsen, Dickson, or Brockel, his name could be Simonson or even Lucas. I think the Swole Bones experiment is over. Nate Chandler and Martin Wallace, OTs–Martin Wallace could beat him out; or we could go with 3 OTs; I see it this way—Chandler 50%, Martin 25%, and no fourth T 25%. Ben Jacobs Jason Trusnik, and David Mayo, MLB—with Mayo on the roster (or PS) and Klein showing that he is suited for the middle, Jacobs hopes are bleak; Trusnik has a better chance than Jacobs, but not a good chance. Fozzy Whittaker, Brandon Wegher, and Jordan Todman RB—Three quality players fighting for the 3rd RB honor behind Stewart and CAP. Fozzy probably gets the job, but will they keep a 4th based on special teams? If so, my money goes Todman and, with fingers crossed, Wegher goes to the PS. Corey Brown, Brenson Bersin, and Damiere Byrd WR: Assuming Funchess, Cotchery, Ginn, and Norwood have jerseys, that leaves 1 to 2 WRs jobs open-1 after picking up a player on the waiver wire—something I expect. Since we have 2 big possession WRs and 1 speed WR, I would guess that the advantage goes to Brown or Byrd. Rakim Cox DE or nobody. Do the Panthers carry 5 DEs? If so, Cox edges Miley for the job. I think Cox goes to the PS and the Panthers carry 4. TJ Heath, Carrington Byndum, Lou Young CB—Fighting for the fifth and possibly sixth CB jobs behind Norman, Tillman, Benwikere, and TWilliams. I think Heath gets the fifth job, Byndum gets the sixth, but I think they keep 5 and put 1 on the PS. Dean Marlowe S or nobody. I think they try to get him on the roster based on the limited play of Jones and Harper. If not, they try to stash him on the PS. My prediction? He gets a roster spot. Brian Folkerts C—Hurt or not, that NE game was ugly. He could be replaced in free agency, or they could go with Scott and Remmers behind him.
Not that I have the answers, but here goes my first thought: We have 3-4 WRs with the same basic skill sets--Boykin, Bersin, Norwood, and Funchess. Brown can get open, is a smaller, faster player. Not sure how either related to special teams....
Seriously, name a WR who has done well in Seattle lately? Could it be that they all don't suck, but that their QB has a lack of vision and throws timing off by scrambling all the time? Give him a chance. I think this was a nice acquisition since Calvin Johnson, as of 8:30 PM Monday, has yet to be cut.
