Prediction: The entire 53-man Roster
First, using the players that failed to make the cut, we’ll put together the 10-man practice squad.
(RB) Richard, (WR) Mickens, (G) Omoile, (T) Kirkland, (DT) Latham, (DE) Iddings, (DE) Townsend, (LB) Wilson, (CB) Hamilton, (S) Hackett.
And here is the *53-man roster:
QB: Carr, McGloin, Cook
RB: Murray, Washington, Jones
FB: *Reece, Olawale
WR: Cooper, Crabtree, Roberts, Holmes, Holton
TE: Walford, Smith, Rivera
OL: Penn, Osemele, Hudson, Jackson, Watson, Howard, Feliciano, Alexander
DL: Mack, Williams, Edwards Jr., Ellis, Autry, Orr, Ward, McGee, Cowser
LB: *A. Smith, Heeney, Irvin, M. Smith, Ball, Calhoun, James, Bates, Toomer
CB: Smith, Amerson, Carrie, Hayden, Thorpe, Dexter McDonald
S: Joseph, Nelson, Allen, Trawick
ST: Janikowski, King, Condo
*Reece and Aldon are suspended and don’t count towards the active 53-man roster. For that reason, 55 players are included above, so two players eventually would have to be released to make room for both Reece and Aldon. Assuming the team wants to bring both players back.
The toughest decisions were between Atkinson/Jones/Richard, who wins the fifth WR spot, if the team will carry nine offensive lineman or not, which of the three special teams studs (Bates, Toomer, Trawick) make it, and the fourth safety spot.
