Re: Another Prediction Thread: 53-man Roster Projections

I think the only way Robinson is in any kind of trouble at all is if Hankerson is healthy and balling before final cuts, which is doubtful. Pretty much every projection I've seen by our insiders has the team carrying 6 receivers, and the only other guy besides Hank who could challenge Robinson is maybe Rashad Ross, as a kick returner? Really can't see that happening. I think Robinson ultimately makes the team and finally gives us more good(killer speed) than bad(route limitations and inconsistent hands). At least I hope so.

Gruden had better not cut PT before he can show what he can do. We're weak at safety and I suspect that PT can help us there.

As for CT, I think we have other backs who can do what he does when healthy (which, unfortunately for him, is seldom).
i wouldnt be surprised if we cut a vet or two (bowen etc) and add a vet FS who just got cut from another team

i dont think we go into week 1 with both rambo and thomas as backups.

I'd like to add another veteran safety but I don't want to see Phillip Thomas cut. I really want to see if PT can become a good NFL safety.

PT needs some more PT in the training room so he can get some PT on the field.

I agree, the Redskins are second in line to pick up some decent vets that get cut. The key could be salary cap space.

I'm not sure about this but wouldn't the team that cuts them be responsible for paying them any guaranteed money? I think the Skins would be able to pay them vet minimum which would be no problem as far as the cap is concerned. But, as I said, I'm not sure about that.

You are correct. Cut is cut. And most folks will be desperate for a job and will come cheap. I'm hoping that we can grab a very capable safety or tackle for a cheap, short-term rental.

The guaranteed money, as in signing bonus money, will be paid by the team that cuts them. However, if a team picks up a vet they assume their contract.... unless the player clears waivers. The good ones will not clear waivers .

In case you haven't see Keim's latest roster projections, he agrees with this in part. He has Trenton Robinson making the team as a 5th safety, but at the expense of Chris Thompson instead of the 3rd QB. At this point, I really couldn't make a good argument for keeping CT over Akeem Davis or Robinson. I love me some Thompson, but if he can't stay healthy, what's the point?
