Roster Prediction

Here's my 53 man roster breakdown.

Of note: I cut Riddick, Speivey and Chris Greenwood, while keeping Kellen Moore, Montell Owens, Kris Durham, Michael Spurlock, and Joe Fauria.

Even though the WR depth is atrocious, I couldn't justify keeping Riddick on the roster. If he can play WR, and only WR, better than Durham or Spurlock, he might be able to find himself on the roster in their place, but I imagine any chance he has to make the roster is entirely based on whatever Mayhew has up his sleeve in regards to the WR position.

Kellen Moore looked good against NE, likely earning a roster spot, but I still think it's a waste. If you need to use your 3rd string QB, you're already screwed. Either flush the season, trade for someone else's backup, or sign a FA to a one year deal. All of those seem like better options to me than Kellen Moore.

I've got Wendling making the roster as the backup safety, but I doubt he'll play a single snap there. I also kept Rashean Mathis as a corner, and I think he will take over any backup safety duty that Wendling might have otherwise seen.

Fauria has a lot to like. Great size, great hands, and our roster is lacking in receivers. Couple that with Michael Williams' broken hand, and that spells a roster spot for him.

As for Chris Greenwood, I thought about keeping him and giving Ron Bartell his walking papers, but I haven't seen enough of Chris Greenwood to give him a roster spot just yet.

Let me know what you guys think!
