What to do with Buchannon?

So, Buchannon is eligible to rejoin the team today. We have up through next Monday to make a decision. Is he worth adding to the roster at the expense of one of our other DBs? 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?

If he's healthy I think you've gotta find a spot for him.

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

I think Shanny was saying he was uncertain if there are any restrictions to bringing him on the 53 immediately.

From my understanding, he is good to go for Philly. Right?

Need the experience in the secondary, find a spot.

We should cut Cooley.

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

I think someone else had said it, but I think Mike Sellers gets ungloriously released. Which is a shame for all he has done.

There are only 2 reasons why CC would be getting so much time at FB:

1) showcase him for possible trade bait (if the trade deadline hasn't passed - which I don't think it has)

or

2) make sure he is capable of stepping in when DY isn't available. I think he has shown that he is.

Ultimately Buchanon needs a spot on the roster, even though our CB's have done ok, he is a polished veteran and will be an improvement on an already good D. If Sellers is let go that would be an understandable move, but a shame nonetheless.

If you're going to make me scroll through lots of white space at least make the joke good.

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

You have to find a spot for Buck. Plus he returns punts/kicks, no? I think Sellers or Stallworth could be the odd man out.

Probably Sellers since Cooley has been getting reps at HB and FB.

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

Yeah I would think Sellers could be a candidate. Haven't even noticed him on the field lately.

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

I can't see Buchanon not getting on the roster unless they really think that shoulder isn't going to heal anytime soon. If he's almost healthy, he's got to be out there. I know Westbrook & Thompson play teams, but neither is as valuable as PB to the D.

I think it's either of those guys or Stallworth. Don't see Sellers being let go w/Young having been hurt & out the last 2 games.

Yeah but we haven't even seen Sellers with Young out. Cooley has been playing FB.

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

Its gonna be either sellars or banks. Banks has not shown one bit of reason why he should be kept on an NFL roster. Returning a couple kicks to the 23 yard line, and a couple negative punt returns do not a 53 man roster make. Scooch over Banks. Plenty of capable return men on this squad, who could prolly outdo his production thusfar.

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

Probably Sellers. It's pretty sad when you're supposed to be a backup fullback and you can't get on the field when the starting fullback goes down. Yes it'll probably be an unglorious release, but so be it. I appreciate everything he's done for us over the years but all good things must come to an end.

Re: What to do with Buchannon?

Buchannon is definetly coming back. Im going with either Sellers, Banks, or Westbrook in that order. And ill add Hankerson just because i think we can get away with adding him to our PS, the guy just isnt read to play for us or any other team.

Sellers would be my guess.
