I see the new guys, the Predator and Rambo, are both listed as SS...

I know its early, but B Merriweather coming off a major knee injury starting at Free Safety is not good. Im hoping T Jax is gonna join us and be the starter at FS.

Or is the free safety not on the roster yet?

Its never too early to freakout...who our Free Safety starter?
In the article that Matty posted about Meriweather's return to health, Shanahan describes Meriweather as a strong safety. So I wouldn't worry about a mistaken online depth chart.

I think:
CB Wilson
CB Biggers
Nickle: D Hall
FS Thomas
SS Merriweather
Jackson still has to be reinstated by the league, so technically he's on the team but not active and that's up to Goodell. He's had many violations, so it's not a clear 4, 8 or 16-game suspension, it's up to the Commissioner when it's over. I'm not counting on him. I'd rather roll with the rookies.

Biggers as a starter...surprising. I actually forgot about him.

Man, we have SO much depth in the secondary now!


Cornerback
Josh Wilson
DeAngelo Hall
David Amerson
EJ Biggers
Richard Crawford
Chase Minnifield
Jerome Murphy
Devin Holland
Korey Lindsey

Safety
Brandon Meriweather
Phillip Thomas
Bacarri Rambo
Tanard Jackson (maybe)
Jordan Bernstein
Reed Doughty
DeJon Gomes
Jordan Pugh

I think its because it makes no sense for him to even be on the team, but if we signed I think we would because he would play some significant role.

Exactly...some of the guys don't even have jersey numbers yet!

Cool, didnt see that. I just need something to freak out on. Merriweather at Free Safety would fill that need.

That's a bit over zealous.

Now that hes making the right amount of money, there is no reason for him not to be. Hes our best DB and will play #1 this season.

I did it simply because I think starting Amerson will be better for the team, especially in the long term. We need to develop this kid and see what he can do.

He's on 21 years old, by the way.

If he falters, Hall gets his starting role back. I thought if we drafted a starting CB, Hall could move to FS but it's crowded back there now.

Who is slated at FS? Merriwether, Doughty and evidently Thomas all play SS. Although I wonder if Merriwether can play both since he's listed as FS on the official website. Otherwise it's Bernstine, Pugh, Rambo or Gomes at FS I guess.

Our coaching staff is smarter than that.


(although Rambo could handle it)

IMO no one right now. We have three rooks who have never played a down on an NFL field. Wayyyyy too early to be making a call on a starter.

I agree.

In other news: I hate the offseason, still.

Re: Secondary is a Primary

Shanny needs to name a starter today to satisfy my freakout.
