If we HAD to field a 55 man roster right now.....


Recommended Posts

The new CBA calls for a 55 man roster (up from 53), if we HAD to play a game today and HAD to name a 55 man roster with only players currently under contract, it might look something like this.

As of right now, I think we are maybe 9 players away from fielding at least a competitive NFL 55 Man roster:

  1. Starting Caliber Offensive Lineman (Tackle) - (1st or 2nd round draft pick)
  2. Starting Caliber Wide Receiver - (1st or 2nd round draft pick)
  3. Starting Caliber Outside Linebacker / Edge Rusher - (Veteran Free Agent? 3rd round draft pick)
  4. Starting Caliber Cornerback  - (Veteran Free Agent? 3rd round draft pick)
  5. Backup QB - (Re-sign Siemian? Veteran Free Agent?)  I actually like White and think he could be a #3 QB with the expanded roster 
  6. Guard  - maybe starting caliber, maybe good backup quality  - (Veteran Free Agent? Re-sign Compton or Qvale? 4th round draft pick)
  7. Punter - (Veteran Free Agent? Re-sign Edwards? 6th round draft pick?)
  8. Backup Safety  - (Veteran Free Agent? Re-sign Farley or Miles? 5th round draft pick)
  9. Backup Outside Linebacker  - (Veteran Free Agent? Re-sign Copeland or Jenkins? 5th round draft pick?)
