(WECK 1230) — Here’s the Bills depth chart as of midnight Sunday:
QB: T. Edwards | Fitzpatrick | Brohm
RB: Spiller | Jackson | Lynch
WR: Evans | Parrish | Nelson | St. Johnson | Jones
TE: Nelson | Foschi | Stupar
T: Bell | Green | Meredith | Wang
G: Wood | Levitre | Howard
DE: Stroud | D. Edwards | Sp. Johnson | McCargo
DT: Williams | Troup
LB: Kelsay | Torbor | Posluszny | Ellis | Carrington | Coleman | Davis | Moats | Mitchell | Ellison | Maybin
CB: McGee | Florence | McKelvin | Corner | Youboty
S: Byrd | Whitner | Wilson | Scott | C. Harris | D. Harris
ST: Lindell | Moorman | Sanborn
So, who is in the most amount of danger currently on the 53-man roster? Well, both Dominique and Cary Harris aren’t in pretty positions. Six safeties?? Sounds like a burrito lover at a Mexican food buffet. Cary’s in more danger than Dominique, who at 6’2″ is a very tall corner, but capable.
I think the majority of linebackers aren’t completely safe and Donald Jones may’ve dodged the axe for now, but there are a number of wide-outs who’ve just entered the market.
Josh Reed would do well to re-acquaint himself with One Bills Drive. I’d also argue that if recently cut Lions tackle Jon Jansen fancies a quick jaunt through Ontario, the 34-year-old is likely a much better option than Cornell Green. Troy Smith would make cutting Brian Brohm appealing. Dolphins tight end David Martin would be a nice addition.
In terms of the practice squad, I see several as options. Surely Levi Brown and Joique Bell top the list of recently cut eligible squadron members, with Naaman Roosevelt very close to the top as well. Ellis Lankster, Nick Hennessey and Andre Ramsey would be my favorites amongst the rest of Saturday’s cuts.
Former third-round WR Juaquin Iglesias has been cut by the Bears, who’ve also let loose Dan LeFevour. Cowboys tight end Martin Rucker hasn’t exposed his promise at the NFL level yet, but would be a worthy risk. Guard Selvish Capers is a player I was hoping the Bills would choose in the third-round. Maybe Bills OL coach Joe D’Alessandris can find what the Skins couldn’t. Quarterbacks Zac Robinson (Okla State) and Colt Brennan (Hawaii) might be worth a look.
Let’s just say the next few days could be interesting.
