I wonder how many players we have under contract and how many do we need to clear to sign the rookies and UDFAs...

Its a deep WR room. Let's just hope that we don't have to ask any of these guys back because of injuries like last year. That was over the top as far as injuries to one position.

Unfortunate part of the business with post-draft cuts.

Yeah Patton is at the least a camp lock. He’ll be competing with Marcus Johnson and Daurice Fountain for the WR 5 spot.

It's 83 right now on Spotrac, already including Blankenship. So substracting him, Brown and Ishmael, we have room for 10 UDFAs (with Blankenship being one of them).

Does that include the drafted players?

If only we had some sort of conduit to that type of information. :dunno:

I need Blankenship to make the team so our kicking game will consist of RigoRigo!

Not unexpected, but I am really disappointed that Ishmael didn't work out better for us. Have been cheering for him to do well... Best of luck to both players!

By my count, cutting these two puts us right at 90 with the draft picks and the UDFA's that have been linked to us.

Always liked Ismael, but not surprised at all. Thought he might last into Camp, but always thought he'd get cut. Only so many seats at the table.

Not to be argumentative,  but, is it?

 

Is it a deep WR room?

 

TY, Pittman, Campbell,  Pascal, Fountain, Patton, Johnson.   I know there are others....

 

Is that really a deep room?  
 

For what it’s worth, I’ve read that next year’s WR class might be almost as good as this years.  Certainly way above average.   I’d expect us to grab another WR or two in 21.

    • He is a whole different order of threat than Mack.  I'll be very surprised if teams aren't focusing him by week 4 or so.  And if it wasn't for Mack I'd say he's a real good bet for ROY.  Still might be even with Mack sharing carries.
    • Sub par reading comprehension on my part.
    • 100% agree here. It's probably the right thing to do honestly to keep 6 WRs. We have lots of potential, but no guarantees besides Hilton at this point. However, I love Pittman, Pascal and Campbell as well. Patmon and Dulin can still make the practice squad, so they might not make the 53 because of that. Fountain is borderline, I think it depends on if he is fully recovered from his injury and can outperform 2 of the other 3 in Patmon, Dulin, and Marcus Johnson. Marcus showed some potential as well, he's the longshot IMO, but a big training camp could have him make the roster as the no6 receiver.   I don't think Patmon will stay on the practice squad for very long with his size and potential, so I'd keep him, don't know between the other 3 yet, I'd determine that through training camp competition. In any case, our WR potential looks fantastic, and with Rivers at QB, I believe we'll have 2 guys break out this year at WR.
    • If it's going to happen to anyone this year, it'll be us. Mack and Taylor will both be used heavily in the offense, Reich seems committed to the run, great O-Line. The recipe is there for something like that to happen. Not only that, we should be ahead in the majority of our games, so I can see us running the ball a lot in the 2nd half to waste time off the clock.    Obvious it's not guaranteed to happen, but I think if the NFL plays a full 16 games the result will be very close.
    • Great stuff. Sounds like Paris is off to a great start. Kevin Bowen said he is supposed to be at practice Monday. I think they will be in full pads.
