    Special Teams (3)
    K (1) - Longwell
    P (1) - Kluwe
    LS (1) - Loeffler

    I don't like only 4 CBs ... but I don't see any other CBs that really have a shot at making the squad. If they think that Griffin will be back before Week 6, then they will throw him on the roster instead of PUP, which means that Fred Evans or Guion are out of luck.
    I could live with that with one exception......CB.

    My guess, they get another roster spot by jettisoning one of your LB'rs. I would opt to let Farwell go and add another CB.
    No way in hell Farwell goes. Erin or Onatolu go first.

    What you want and what will happen are probably two different things.

    This was not the roster I WANTED ... but the way I THINK it will ACTUALLY shake out.

    There is a 0% chance that Heath Farwell is not on this roster. No matter what crazy reasons you have for disliking him the last three seasons Marr.
    Two things, ......

    1. I know you well enough to know what made you post this roster composition. As with you, I would have made it a bit different in a couple of areas, but I agree with your cut on how the staff will probably do it.

    2. For that same reason I believe the staff might opt to let Farwell go. Could also be Erin.

    They have some serious injury issues that are going to force them to make a couple of hard cuts. One of them might just be a fan favorite, ala Farwell or possibly Erin.

    If I was making the roster, I would make the following changes......
    Offense (24)
    QB (3) - Favre, T-Jack, Webb
    RB (3) - Peterson, Albert Young, Gerhart
    FB (2) - Tahi, D'Imperio
    WR (5) - Berrian, Harvin, Camarillo, Lewis, Reynaud
    TE (2) - Shiancoe, Kleinsasser
    OL (8) - McKinnie, Herrera, Hutchinson, Sullivan, Loadholt, Cook, DeGeare, Radovich

    Defense (26)
    DE (5) - Allen, Edwards, Robison, Griffen, Mitchell
    DT (5) - P. Williams, K. Williams, Kennedy, Guion, Evans
    LB (6) - EJ Henderson, Greenway, Leber, Brinkley, Onatolu, Erin Henderson
    CB (5) - Winfield, Sheppard, Cook, Allen, Sherels
    S (5) - Johnson, Abdullah, Williams, Frampton, Sanford

    Special Teams (3)
    K (1) - Longwell/Rhys
    P (1) - Kluwe
    LS (0) - I would use JA

    You see why I agreed with your initial lineup?

    Re:Final Roster and Cuts

    Onatolu before Erin they have been playing him on the OLB spots and MLB spot during the preseason and i think he might be the top backup for the outer spots and 3rd for the MLB

    Re:Final Roster and Cuts

    If I was making this Roster I would do the following and be left with 52. You guys can pick another player to keep. Perharps Webb. Why do we need 5 Safteys? Why can't you have 2 starters and 2 backups?

    (25)
    QB (3) - Favre, Sage, T-Jack
    RB (4) - Peterson, Reynaud, Gerhart, Young
    FB (1) - D'Imperio
    WR (6) - Berrian, Harvin, Camarillo, Lewis, Walker, Payne
    TE (3) - Shiancoe, Dugan Kleinsasser
    OL (8) - McKinnie, Herrera, Hutchinson, Sullivan, Loadholt, Cook, DeGeare, Radovich

    Defense (25)
    DE (5) - Allen, Edwards, Robison, Griffen, Mitchell
    DT (5) - P. Williams, K. Williams, Kennedy, Guion, Evans
    LB (6) - EJ Henderson, Greenway, Leber, Brinkley, Onatolu, Erin Henderson
    CB (5) - Winfield, Sheppard, Cook, Allen, Sherels
    S (4) - Johnson, Abdullah, Williams,Sanford

    Special Teams (2)
    K (1) - Longwell
    P (1) - Kluwe
    LS(0) - Allen

    No kidding. Farwell has been on a mission since TC started. He will not be cut.

    I think he will be cut. He cost more than the other guys and our ST has been solid. The number of plays he makes down field has been reduced.

    Or perhaps a S?
    Yeah ... especially with the way things have shook out ... I could definitely see them adding a CB ... maybe Wright or a waiver pick up and leaving Frampton at home.

    I think the first cut is likely a safety from this list as carrying 5 is probably not going to happen if they carry 5 CBs.
    Yeah...my main reason for thinking Safety wasn't to rip on them, but more so the fact it's hard to imagine them keeping 5 mediocre safeties, when we could use an additional CB.
