Default 8 Man Practice Squad

i am taking much more interrest in this years squad because i feel we have cut some very legitimate talend on an extremely deep superbowl champion team. the likes of carey davis and anthony madison were huge contributors to our kick return coverage teams (which pretty much sucked prior to last years effort) and cannot be retained.

so who clears waivers and is brought back?

Dallas Baker, Roy Lewis, Jeremy Parquet, Desmond Sherrod, Carey Davis, Isaac Redman, Bruce Davis, Anthony Madison, A.Q. Shipley, Scott Paxson, Sonny Harris, Jason Capizzi, Mike Reilly, Peter Czech, Justin Vincent, Tyler Grisham, Tom Korte, Steve McLendon, Andy Schantz and Brandon Williams

im really thinking i. redman, and s. harris are long shots to clear waivers (but then again, this isnt like the draft).

bruce davis
roy lewis
isaac redman
aq shipley
sonny harris
jason capizzi
tyler grisham (is baker still eligible?)
derrick richardson (my guy makes it back)

these are definites imo. I'd rather they keep Donovan Woods over Bruce Davis

i thought that WR Brandon Williams looked pretty decent, maybe him. Maybe RB Vincent. Maybe Parquet

Remember sometimes they grab players cut from other teams and put on their p.s.

Remember it also seems like they always grab a couple players cut from other teams and put on their p.s.
remember.. it is always the best available player for us....

im sure they have a list...

Unless Reed is still injured - which he mustn't be, because Czech was released - why keep an extra kicker? I don't think Reed's going to falter, he's been a sure thing for years at Heinz... It would be like keeping an extra long-snapper, just in case.

kickers on the actual squad dont even "practice". they kick balls, play games, goof off, and do things like putting frogs in the real players helmets.

jeff reed was scraped up off of the street , and im sure any replacement kicker we may need, will be too.

i didnt even think of woods being available for the squad. dont know about the severity of his injury, but i guess he is equally interchangable with davis, as is any wr we may keep.

good call.

Isn't that why we re-claimed James Harrison, after the Ravens released him?
