Well, we have seen both pre-season games and some of the receivers has distinguished themselves. It's going to be very difficult to decide who stays and who goes. I daresay that some of the cuts would make great trades for other positions where we need some help. A good rushing DE?....
Anderson seems to have done some good things as has Kitwana Jones.
So, any thoughts on who starts the season in an Als uni on June 30?
I refer you to my post on 2nd game of pre-season for cuts that I expect.
We have good receivers,so do other teams. We don't need a DE; we have Bowman,McElveen and Stewart. DT? Maybe but not a DE. In order to acquire a good DT,we would have to give a good player. Should not happen.
Veterans that I expect could be released are: Dix,Holness,Woldu and possibly DeAngelis. Maypray? Possibly. Veterans who were not with us that could be released are: Bernard,Jones and Rodriguez. Not all of them will definitely be released but I would not be surprised. I am more positive on the Dix,Holness and Rodriguez. If we sign Robede,Kitwana Jones could be released.
I am anxiously waiting for the news. Will some of these Als's veterans-Dix,Maypray,Watkins and Woldu- be released or traded? I say that Dix will be released; Woldu could be released or traded to Saskatchewan; Maypray may not be released but he may still be in the week ahead. Competition from Bowling and Slaughter. Watkins. I would not be surprised if he is traded or released.
Based on the latest roster, the Als have released/transferred to injury list 14 players. They are:
There are still 59 players on the roster,i.e. 30 imports and 29 non-imports,meaning that other moves will have to be made,before 15 hours Saturday.
Brouillette and Desriveaux have probably been added to the 1 game injury list,while Dublanko,Sagesse and possibly Neiswander to the 9 game injury list. Cobb maybe on 9 game injury list.
RB- 6,i.e. 3 imports and 3 non-imports
WR/SB- 8,i.e. 7 imports and 1 non-import
Ol- 11,i.e. 1 import and 10 non-imports
DL- 10,i.e. 6 imports and 4 non-imports
LB- 8, i.e. 3 imports and 5 non-imports
DB- 10, i.e. 6 imports and 4 non-imports
KR- 1 import
K/P- 2 non-imports
In the next 48 hours or so, players will have to be released/traded/put on injury list; here,by position,what could be done:
RB- 1 less import
WR/SB- 1 less import
OL- 1 less import and 3 less non-imports
DL- 1 less import and as much as 2 less non-imports. See K/P
LB- 2 less non-imports
DB- 1 less import and 1 less non-import
K/P- 1 less non-import.-possibly- If none,2 less non-imports in DL
With these reductions,we would have an active roster of 46 players; some the players released,along with some of the ones released today, will be added to the practice roster.
I'm confused about the Dix situation. I thought Parker and Estelle were going to be our starting corners, with Anderson and Brown inside and Brouillette and Boulay at safety. At this point, isn't Dix a backup?
