    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?
    It has nothing to do with position and everything to do with ST. Frampton is pretty good in that area.

    And with that ... here is what I think the 53 will look like

    Offense (24)
    QB (3) - Favre, T-Jack, Webb
    RB (3) - Peterson, Gerhart, Reynaud
    FB (2) - Tahi, D'Imperio
    WR (5) - Berrian, Harvin, Camarillo, Lewis, Walker
    TE (3) - Shiancoe, Kleinsasser, Duggan
    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 (7) - EJ Henderson, Greenway, Leber, Brinkley, Farwell, Onatolu, Erin Henderson
    CB (4) - Winfield, Sheppard, Cook, Allen,
    S (5) - Johnson, Abdullah, Williams, Frampton, Sanford

    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.
    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.
    Yeah things have changed now since Cook went down. They will definitely keep another CB.

    I understand all of the cuts above (kinda liked cornerback Sherels though) except from one thing that is really bothering me. Why did we cut fullback/linebacker Ryan D'Imperio?
    Tahi is not a better blocker than D'Imperio.
    Tahi can't do anything with the ball in his hands, D'Imperio has made bigger plays in this preseason than Tahi has in his whole career.
    Tahi is older, possibly slower, and smaller than D'Imperio.
    Tahi is not versatile at all, D'Imperio can also play linebacker.

    Re:Final Roster and Cuts

    I was hoping we would sign Diperio to the PS..

    Is there still a chance of that?

    And thank god Clark is gone.. He couldn't block anyone and looked like Todd Steussie jumping every other play

    Yeah ... all these guys are eligible for the practice squad unless someone else picks them up and adds them to their roster.
