I have an unbalanced roster to account for the defensive injuries. Clinton McDonald makes the roster over a backup guard or 6th WR while the team waits for Mebane and Hill to get healthy. I’m not sold on this idea to be honest, but it’s the only way to make sure there’s a proper rotation for the first couple games.

    Who do you think goes when Irvin is back? Also, no McDaniel? Id probably take him over Mcdonald.

    • 12thMan_Rising

      McDonald or Mayowa, depending on is the rest of the D-line has healed by then.

      The reason for McDonald over McDaniel is b/c McDaniel is banged up. Keeping him doesn’t help in injury situation which is the only reason I’m keeping an extra DT to begin with. If everyone else was healthy, I’d probably drop both and keep Harper or an offensive lineman.

  • Weaves

    Only 2 changes in my opinion. Mcdaniel over Mcdonald & Maragos over Shead.

    • 12thMan_Rising

      McDaniel is hurt, so he doesn’t help the injury situation. Only reason McDonald made it was for that reason, so I couldn’t keep McDaniel in there.

      The Shead – Maragos swap was done entirely for cap reasons. Maragos is probably the better players, but the difference isn’t big enough in my opinion to make up for having almost 3 times the salary. We’ll see. you’re probably right.

  • Hawkman54

    M ROB is gone and Tony McDaniel I bet makes the team.

    • 12thMan_Rising

      Yep. Siliga and Howard are gone as well. McDaniel must be healthier than I expected.

  • jimpassi

    i would guess we need cap space
    i would guess we would lock up russ for 5-10 years
