It'd be nice to see you add an over/under line to each roster position indicating where yiubthink tge cut off line will be for each spot. In other words, how many LB or WR do people think we'll keep.

I think it is time for Streat Rod, O'leary and Logan Thomas to be moved to blue.  I am actually getting excited about Streater's ability to find the soft spot in the defense and think he will be a great contributor this year when it comes to moving the chains.

@SInow

Can Zay Jones establish himself as the No. 2 across from Sammy Watkins? @ChrisBurke_SI on WR/TE battles

I think Kirby asked for a refresh last week just before all the trade chaos started off.  After two games here is how I see it.

I make that 32 guaranteed and 15 pretty close.  That gets you to 47.... I reckon that at least one more safety and one more tight end are certain to feature which gets you to 49.... 4 spots to then decide between extra corners / receivers / running backs and Reggie Ragland....

Tolbert, Logan Thomas, Worthy, Adolphus, Hodges, and Seymour will all make the team IMO.

Of those only Thomas is still in red.... if they are in blue I think they make the team but are not absolute locks.

Gotcha.  Thomas has locked up the 3rd TE spot.

Hmmm.  I'm really not convinced.  I saw the good camp reports.... he has been underwhelming in the games for me.

I think Worthy has made the team and Ducasse is cut. Maybe that is wishful thinking!

 

I don't get the Colt Anderson love. What has he ever done except be injured and is a marginal talent at best?

 

I also think Elston and Gary are better.

He's been okay and obviously still requires additional development as he continues his transition.

Colt Anderson, before the injury, was a well-respected gunner.

I think Ducasse being cut is wishful thinking.  I still hope that he is too, I think he is terrible, but I believe the Bills are going to start the season with him at RG and Miller on the bench. If they do McDermott will lose some early respect for me.

He could be damaged goods. He hurt his foot again in pre-game warmups and is on the shelf again.
