As the Coach says, every year is a "new" team

This is my guess as to which faces will be "new" on the 09 team and who is gone, or will be gone, this fall.

11 are already gone (counting Foote)

Could be as many as a fifteen new faces plus some new Practice Squad players.


Position and who is IN and who is OUT
Offense
RB Mendenhall ........... Gary Russell
T Hills............ Marvel Smith
G Urbik........... Kendall Simmons
WR Wallace........... Washington
CB K. Lewis ........... Bryant McFadden
QB Batch ........... Byron Leftwich
LS Estermeyer/Warren........... Jared Retofsky
P Sepulveda ........... Mitch Berger

Defense
FS Mundy/Lewis/Richardson........... Anthony Smith
ILB Fox (ST to back up ILB)........... Larry Foote
DE Hood ........... Orpheus Roye


Some interesting Competition for Camp
CB Ratliff/Burnett ........... Bryant
WR McDonald ........... Nance, Baker
G Urbik ........... Stapleton
C AQ Shipley........... Stapleton (If Stapleton gets beat out by Urbik, Center is his next position)
FB Powdrell ........... C. Davis
LB Woods ........... Frazier
QB Reilly ........... Batch (interesting thought)
TE Spaeth ........... Sherrod/DJ Johnson
DE Ra'Shon Harris ........... Kirschke

Tony Hills might get the ax........but I could be wrong, it depends on how much he "bulked up".....or if he did.

I like the two inside undrafted free agents. One will make active roster as special teamer and the other might make the practice squad.
