Good stuff

Glad about Darius Slayton’s return. Also interesting to see Love as starting FS.
Dickerson over Conrad comes as a bit of a surprise...  
Klaatu : 8/13/2019 5:39 pm : link
Considering all of the pub that Conrad has gotten since the Spring.

doesn’t seem good for Wheeler
Dickenson, Simonson, Conrad,

flip a coin. Keep the best blocker or two. Conrad probably has a little more upside as a receiver.

Wheeler seemed out of sorts today, and not very energetic

Moops -- Dickenson and Simonson are bigger and more consistent

Conrad could be a practice squad guy...may not be ready to contribute this year, but maybe a redshirt season will help
I'll be surprised if Conrad doesn't make

Final 53.

I also think Fowler makes the team.....  
Simms11 : 8/13/2019 6:34 pm : link
He’s a decent WR too. I’m wondering how many TEs and WRs they keep?

Sounds like a guy that just got demoted.

people were talking up were Josiah and O'Hagan. Unless I missed it I havent heard a peep about either. Seems like Moss is also a goner.

They're all listed as virtually the same size.
Simonson probably has no upside, what you see is what you get.
Dickenson has one camp under his belt.
Conrad's a rook. A mistake here and there is expected.
They're all fringe players at this point, with Conrad having a bit more upside. Me, if I like his blocking I keep him.
I do  
Eric from BBI : Admin : 8/13/2019 7:12 pm : link
think Garrett is flying under the radar. He seems to have the ability to get further down the field than Conrad. (The play he made today is one I'm not sure Conrad could do). That said, Shurmur has praised Conrad for his blocking (despite his frame). It's going to be a tough battle.

Don't count out Simonson... again, blocking is a factor as much as receiving.
Nice to read about

Slayton.
Is Slayton making the 53 in question...?  
Capt. Don : 8/13/2019 9:53 pm : link
Gidie mentioned it and so did Tom Rock.

Why would Eli be a candidate for comeback player of the year  
Jimmy Googs : 8/13/2019 10:15 pm : link
if he personally had one of his better years in 2018?

Gidie or anybody else chime in please...

Thought I added this last night!!

Good to see Slayton practicing. Hope he gets to play Friday. He could really be able too be the guy to take the top off the defense. He just needs to control his drops which seemed to go away in OTA's.

Googs,

The argument is that with real protection you might see a more consistent performance in “real time” and a winning record. Many pundits feel that his stats last year were inflated in “garbage time”.

one of the beat writers picked up that some german betting website put out long shot odds for him to be comeback player of the year and wrote an article about it.

it is silly

I can't imagine it is. He's going to make it. Though many talk about guys getting claimed very few do but I think he'd be someone some other team might take a chance on. Sub 4.4 attracts attention. And with Tate's suspension there is an "extra" spot.
Simonson is a holding penalty waiting to happen  
ChicagoMarty : 8/14/2019 8:55 am : link
Out of the contending TE's for a roster spot -- keep the best receiver, not the best blocker.

This is a passing league now.

Whomever can consistently beat safety or lb pass coverage and be a weapon for the O, that's the guy we both want and need.
Great

report. Thanks.
Thanks GIdiefor  
Jay in Toronto : 8/14/2019 9:15 am : link
that's some logjam at WR

I wonder who besides Slayton might have the highest ceiling?
Thanks gidie and Ron  
Jimmy Googs : 8/14/2019 9:30 am : link
good job on updates btw...
Thank you Giddie great job  
Bluesbreaker : 8/14/2019 10:00 pm : link
Hopefully we will get to see Slayton
Friday night .
