Predict the Final 53: The Far Too Early Version

Recommended Posts

Let's see them? How does the roster shake out?

Here are the new roster rules under the new CBA:

Quote

 

Yes. More jobs. That's another way the players benefit. The game-day active roster will increase from 46 to 48 players (although one of the extra players must be an offensive lineman, which will give teams more flexibility to have three extra linemen). Practice squads will expand from 10 players to 12 in 2020 and 2021 and to 14 starting in 2022. Practice-squad salaries also are going up -- the minimum salary is $8,000 per week in the current CBA, and it will rise to $11,500 by 2022 -- and those players will be eligible for 401(k) and tuition assistance benefits.

Two practice-squad players per week may be elevated to the team's roster, meaning game-week roster sizes could effectively increase from 53 to 55. And a player elevated from the practice squad to the 55-man roster could be sent back to the practice squad two times without having to clear waivers.

The changes will give teams more flexibility in managing their rosters and, if utilized fully, will offer more opportunity for practice-squad players to earn active-roster salaries.

How is one of the extra players having to be O-lineman going to work? Couldn't teams just declare the 7th offensive lineman as the 47th player if they really wanted to?

Elflein vs Jones

If Elflein loses the starting spot, cap saving alone between these two should make this an easy decision in favor of Jones.

Possibly, but factoring in a GM having to give up on a drafted player vs a free agent... likely tips the scales in the favor of Elflein

QB (2): Cousins, Mannion
RB/FB (5): Cook, Mattison, Boone, Abdullah, Ham
WR (5): Thielen, Jefferson, Bisi, Sharpe, Osborn (PR)
TE (4): Rudolph, Irv Smith, Conklin, Dillon
OL (10): Cleveland, Reiff, Bradbury, Samia, O'Neill, Hill, Brandel, Jones, Dozier, Udoh

DE (4): Hunter, Odenigbo, Willekes, Wonnum
DT (5): Pierce, Stephen, Watts, Lynch, Zettel
LB (5): Kendricks, Barr, Wilson, Gedeon, Dye
CB (6): Hughes, Gladney, Hill, Dantzler, Boyd, Sayles
S (4): Smith, Harris, Metellus, Hand

ST (3): Bailey, Colquitt, Cutting

Made this an exercise in keeping the top 12 draft picks. Brandel switches to LG and Hand to FS. Elflein is released as Cleveland starts and Reiff wins the starting job at LG. Zettel plays nickel pass rusher. Holmes, Mata'afa and Jaleel are released. Boyd keeps the CB5 spot because he's so good as a punt gunner. Sayles is the backup NCB. Stanley, Cole, Hinton and Davis to the PS.

Oops. Would like to have Griffen back.  Either way I like the two rookies enough that I would have 5 DEs.  With no Griffen, I would keep Zettel as I just wouldn’t want both back-ups rookies.

I'm kind of surprised at the number of people that are cutting Jaleel Johnson

Underperforming, last year of his deal - it wouldn’t shock me.

Same here. I think he’s a solid back- up NT in pass situations. He did much better in that aspect than Shamar Stephen with a fraction of the snap percentage. I’d cut Stephen before I cut Johnson for sure.
