Summary

Tourek Williams wins the OLB spot over Thomas Keiser. Interesting, but not outlandish in any way.

I'm convinced that Richard Goodman won a roster spot only because the rest of the guys are injury prone, he's not a bad kick returner, and Robert Meachem's contract took up a large chunk of next year's cap space. Still, good for Goody.

I like Johnnie Troutman being kept around. I think he could slide in at RG if Jeromey Clary ever needs to slide over to RT and the right side of the line would still be quite stout at run blocking.

I'm glad that both Whitehurst and Sorensen got to stay. They both earned roster spots.
