Cuts are coming. I'm sorry if this makes anyone feel a certain kind of way, but that's the NFL. Here's one man's thoughts on how it'll turn out.
As soon as I heard that the Chargers would consider sending Crompton to the PS, I wondered why I hadn't thought of this myself. They can't trust Crompton to play this year, they have other good players to take up roster spots and no one is going to pick up the kid on waivers. 2 QBs. Bold move. I like it.
Brinkley is a solid back and he's a good story. But, I have him making the team because I think they can use him on coverage units. The rest is obvious.
|Wide Receivers (5)|
I like Jeremy Williams and it pains me to cut him, but I just don't think he's capable of being a #1 or #2 WR in the league and A.J. can find the role playing WRs pretty easily. Ajirotutu I think needs to be protected because he could be the next Malcom Floyd. Josh Reed did nothing to earn a roster spot this summer.
|Tight Ends (3)|
No brainer here. I know Wilson struggled, but he's still better than the other guys in camp. Maybe if some one decent hits the waiver wire they dump him, but I doubt it.
|Offensive Line (8)|
|Veteran Tackle To Be Named Later|
I think its obvious to many that the Chargers need a little more veteran presence here. They tried with Tra Thomas, but that didn't work out. They'll find somebody who has a least started a game in the NFL before.
|Defensive Line (8)|
The Chargers need everyone of these guys in order to have a fully functional defensive line. Trust the rotation, believe in the rotation and, if you're so inclined, pray for the rotation.
I don't want Jyles Tucker. We don't need Jyles Tucker. I'm not sure why anyone ever thought an NFL team could use Jyles Tucker. That was harsh. Let me put it this way, I'll be disappointed if they keep him here.
Will Vasher make this team? Better yet, who makes this team instead of Vasher? Jeremy Williams? Maybe. Jyles Tucker? I hope not. Crompton? I'd rather have Vasher or Williams. Okay then. Vasher stays.
I hesitate on Spillman, but I think we'll want him for the special teams units at some point.
|Kicker, Punter, Long Snapper (3)|
Checking my work: 2 + 5 + 5 + 3 + 8 + 8 + 9 + 5 + 5 + 3 = 53
