One interesting thing about sucking, in addition to getting a high draft pick is that for all of camp, and through the first few weeks of the season we're picking #2.
So when other teams cut players now, we have practically first dibs. And this should really help with the bottom of the roster after final cuts. There will be a number of teams cutting players on their 53 hoping to get on their practice squad we will have a chance to swoop up.
Keep you eyes on the deeper rosters, especially the Eagles, Rams, Saints, Jags, and Vikings.
We'll be waiting to pounce. It will be like a second draft. I'd expect our Pro personal scouts, where DG thrived early in his career, to be super busy this offseason scouting those top teams (as well as elsewhere in the league)
Basically, I'd look at the guys who get jerseys + backup QB who might be inactive. So that's about 47 guys. I'd be very surprised if less then 3 players cut at the end of roster cut down from other teams aren't on our opening day roster. I could easily see LB, RB, OL, DB from another team filling a spot on our roster.
I saw people posting on the thread of pickups, and I think we're just going to be more active because we are up high and we have depth issues. Waiver wire - How it works
