about damn time!

Claimed Chris Gronkowski today off waivers from the boys. He's the first ACTUAL FULLBACK we have had since Tom Lipeinski.

I know we don't use alot of sets that use the up-man, but when we do we finally will have somebody OTHER than a backup defensive lineman blocking. I love this signing. Our goal line O, along with 3rd and 4th and short situations just got a little better. Delone Carter will benifit greatly from this aquisition.

hope to see a few more waiver pick ups. Need another OT and 2 more safeties.

not sure who goes from the Gronkowski signing. Evans or Spann.

Cuts made. No surprises really. I anticipated Gonzo to be axed, but it didn't happen. Tommie Harris didn't make the team because the coaches didn't like him missing time because of injury against the Redskins.

Miraculously Pollak and Richard survived. Devann and McClenndon didn't

One move that kind of caught me off guard was they didn't keep Gilreath. I can almost guarantee him going to the PS. I thought the display of ability on Punt returns and as a scat WR would have gotten him a spot. Oh well.

Roster is this so far

QB: 18, 5, 7
RB: 29, 31, 34, 28, 32 (either Spann or Evans get put on the PS as the waiver claims happen)
TE: 44, 84, 81, 47 (loved how McNiel played in the preseason, he could be our fullback)
WR: 87, 85, 17, 11, 15
OL: 74, 67, 63, 71, 72, 78, 72, 61 (ugh, definitely expect a few waiver claims for guard and T)

DE: 93, 98, 92, 90, 75
DT: 99, 95, 68, 94 (really was wishing to see Ogbu here, he's definitely PS material)
LB: 55, 58, 51, 50, 53, 57 ( like this group honestly, Sims will flourish with us and Moten becomes our next ST's demon)
CB: 25, 20, 27, 21, 46, 36 (2 rooks make it! Kevin Thomas is starting by week 5)
SS: 33, 35 (love Lefeged. I expect a waiver claim here)
FS: 41, 30

K: 4
P: 1
LS: 48

The way Spann and Evans played in preseason made them worth keeping. I expect one of the two to end up on the PS, if not both of them, depending on what vets are out there on the waivers to claim. I expect a few moves to be made. Some of the rooks could end up getting cut and PSed to make way for claims.
