To me, the answer is no. Thompson would be the obvious man out at CB, but I think he's showed too much promise to chance moving him to the practice squad I think the more important question would be, "is buchannon one of our best 53 players." While I think he is, I also can't think of anyone else on our roster i'd cut to make room for him. The next area we could look to cut someone is wide receiver, since we've got 7 of them already (Banks is not a receiver), but we kept all of those guys for a reason and nothings changed with any of them to make me think we should cut ties with one of them for Buchannon. Unless someone like Young or Armstrong is more injured than we know (IR-worthy), i honestly cant see us bringing buchannon back. What do you guys think?
Here's what I do:

-Release Donte Stallworth
-Move Brandyn Thompson from a 46-man core player to a 53-man healthy inactive.

There's no way PB isn't one of our three best corners. He's probably the second best after Wilson. On one hand, Barnes needs time to develop. But on the other, he's been Kareem Moore-level dreadful.

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

I am dissappointed with banks so far. so I guess buchanon can take his spot for now as a kick/punt returner as well as a solid backup for our secondary

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

Stallworth or Sellers would be my move.. Stallworth has been inactive for 2 games, he was only up Sunday because Armstrong was hurt and he didn't have any targets (that I recall) and Sellers has ST value but that's all at this point.

PB comes in ahead of Barnes I'd have to think. Is it me or is he the stiffest 'skill position' runner we have? Doughty looks more fluid than Barnes!

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

To answer the question, one thing that we can do with Buchanon is to spell his name correctly.

After that, I agree with those who say that he needs to get on to the field and Sellers likely looks for a new job.

Good point. Banks has been pretty horrible in the return game. Since that's his only job, let NP take over and roll from there.

Please don't start this crap again.

Back to the actual subject. I think Buchannon adds a lot to our secondary. I like Barnes a lot, but I'd rather have Buchannon out there instead of Barnes.

Why do you hate Philip Buchanon so much? What did he ever do to you?

LOVE Big Mike....but it's time. Even talking about cutting Cooley should get a forcible relocation to the drunk thread.....

P.Buc is our 3rd best CB and we need him. A big example of why he's important to this team is against Arizona when we had 2 DB's go down.. It looked bad out there with the young bucks.

That's what I think will happen.
