smith, lafell, ginn, hixon, edwards... who do you propose gets the sixth spot? or are you suggesting we just run with five?


I think we carry 6.....6th spot is up for grabs with Gettis looking for it. 6th WR spot isn't normally about having promising talent but more who can suit up and play special teams IMO.

No way we run with less than 6 wide receivers. Gettis already sealed up his spot.

That is my guess. Durability also factors in. We will see.

Maybe they roll with 5 and put the rest on the practice squad. Roll heavy OL until things clear up and them bring up another

Uhh no offense to Bersin, but I just can't see him making it over Gettis.

Again, Rivera said they hoped to have Gettis back soon and hopefully it won't even keep him out a week. That doesn't sound like a guy that's getting cut.

B/c he doesn't have as high of a ceiling therefore isn't as sexy....

6th WR spot isn't about playing WR....about helping in other ways. Maybe neither makes the roster.

They have has Gettis for years now....and he hasn't been in the active roster.

To be fair, if he isn't on the active roster I doubt they feel anyone is going to steal him.

So you're saying Rivera hopes he's back within a week so he's healthy after he's cut?

durability is great, but i'd rather have a talented guy who deals with injuries at times than an immortal fourth-stringer who otherwise doesn't look like an NFL-caliber receiver.

 

unless we cut them both and run with five receivers or bring in a new guy entirely (which is conceivable) i don't think there's any chance bersin makes this roster and gettis doesn't.

I think Rivera considers Armond Smith and Poole Panthers and would refer to them in the same manner....

some guys he knows aren't going to be on the active squad unless something happens to bump them up from practice squad.

But your 6th string WR isn't going to play WR.....he needs to be a special teams player.

What is Gettis going to do on Sunday? He won't play WR or return. That last spot needs to go to whoever can play coverage on ST the best. Don't know who that is.....doesn't sound like either

Thanks people. Gettis will probably land on PUP or designate to return IR. Everyone is one his you know what because of some flashes on 3rd string player. He is not Thomas Davis. People need to realize he wont make the active roster unless an injury happen to people in front of him. Smith, Lafell, Ginn, Hixson, Edwards and someone else back up WR that is probably a gunner on special teams

Rivera also mentioned Smith. He said he needs to work on his vision because he missed several cuts and instead just "put his head down and ran into the pile." He then added a consolatory, "but he's a tough kid."

If we keep 4 RBs, it would be Poole, but I doubt that 4th RB would mean we only keep 5 WRs. Additionally, I could be mistaken, but I dont think Gettis is eligible for the practice squad.

I only brought those guys up b/c I was just showing that he can speak about a guys future...and it not be about them being on our active roster at the present.

What are practice squad rules.... 3 years of eligibility if you never played a season. 2 if you have?

He only was practice squad last year? Right?
