    QB (2) – Dak, Moore
    Bubble – Rush


    WR (5) – Dez, Twill, Beasley, Switzer, Bryce Butler
    Bubble – Andy Jones, Noah Brown


    TE (4) – Witten, Swaim, Hanna, Gathers


    RB/FB (4) – Zeke, DMC, Morris, one of Rod Smith or Keith Smith
    Bubble – Rod Smith, Keith Smith


    OL (9) – Tyron, Cooper, Fred, Martin, Collins, Green, Bell, Looney, Cleary


    3 Specialists – Bailey, Jones, LaDoucer


    DE (6) – Dlaw, Crawford, Taco, Mayowa, Tapper, Moore
    Bubble – Lewis Neal


    DT (4) – Collins, Thornton, Irving, Paea
    Bubble – Ivie


    LB (6) – Sean Lee, Jaylon Smith, Hitchens, Wilson, Wilber
    Bubble – Nzeocha


    CB (5) – Carroll, Brown, Scandrick, Awuzie, Lewis
    Bubble – Marquez White


    Safety (4) – Jones, Heath, Woods, Frazier
    Bubble – Blanton


    That adds up to 52 players, so one bubble player is in now. Two spots will open up temporarily from the suspensions of Irving and Moore.

    At this moment, I would keep Cooper Rush as the 53rd player. I would keep Rod Smith as the FB/4th RB.

    For the suspension slots I would keep Lewis Neal and Marquez White (I think they can cover a lot of DT snaps with guys like Taco and Crawford playing inside).

    Cuts for the Practice Squad would be Andy Jones, Noah Brown, Ivie, and Nzeocha. Keith Smith and Blanton are cut outright.

    Just my personal opinion here but I don't think they brought in Durant to cut him. He knows his assignments and while not spectacular is a player the coaches now what they are getting when he is on the field.

    Good point. I do think they brought Durant in as insurance for Wilson being suspended, but I could see him holding that spot if Wilson gets a suspension. I should add his name to the LB Bubble group.

    Also you read blurbs that Kyle Wilbur looks better this year, I saw a few plays yesterday where he looked good. I wouldn't be afraid to start Wilbur at SAM if Wilson is out for a while.

    Could be, but I get the sense that they don't trust Rico's blocking enough to make him the 3rd TE right now.

    He was insurance that they do not need with the progress of Hitchens, Nzeocha, Smith, and Jones. The epitome of "progress stopper."

    I hear ya but can they count on Nzeocha as highly touted but injury prone player thus far or Wilson with a looming suspension?

    Durant offers more than Wilbur IMO. Just look at the snaps last season. Wilbur is a one trick pony. Durant has value he can play all 3 LB positions well. I think Wilbur or Nzechoa will be cut.

    QB - I'll buy in on Cooper Rush being kept as the third quarterback if he keeps playing like he has.

    RB - If Elliott wins his appeal or gets an injunction, I see Rod Smith making it over Morris if McFadden stays healthy throughout the preseason

    WR - I like Andy Jones, but I think Brown gets the sixth spot, too, because he's played slightly better.

    TE - I agree with everything but your spelling of Hanna

    OL - I'm not sure about Cleary. He has looked bad at left tackle, but he might win out because Looney hasn't looked good, either. I think we'll keep nine linemen, but I'm just not sure which one.

    ST - Set in stone

    DE - With Irving suspended, we keep either Tapper or Jones. Right now, I'm leaning toward Jones.

    DT - I agree, but wouldn't be surprised if Ivie also makes it at the expense of another position.

    LB - Whoops, I see that you have Jones listed with this group. Move him to end and insert Durant.

    DBs - Here's my spot for Ivie because I don't think we'll keep Thomas.
