Please take Lee's job, somebody! I would prefer we never sign him again.

This will probably make Nzocha and his $1.5 mil cap hit expendable.

Good point. Kind of sucks, to be honest because he's even had some nice defensive plays and is certainly a very good special teamer.

I know I looked at the roster and thought, "hey, you know what we're missing? Another linebacker."

Personally, I'd stick with Nzeocha. But, I think this ends up being a camp battle with the loser being cut. Unless, we really need that $1.5 for another signing right now.

It seems like our LB depth chart is looking something like this:

1. Warner

2. Alexander

3. Greenlaw

4/5/6: Al-Shaair / Nzeocha / Walker

7. Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles

 

I see the team keeping 4-5 LB's.

Four LBs on a 55-man roster is way too few. They are more likely to keep 6 than 4, especially given how LBs tend to be useful special teamers.

Yep, regular roster up to 55, PS up to 12. 48 can be active on game day, given that 8 OL are active. If only 7 OL are active, then 47 total can be active.
