[QUOTE]I saw it, too and thought it was poorly worded. In fact, I almost put the thread up here about it because it looked like he was reporting it, not updated his 53 man roster prediction. I'd say he is a bubble guy, but I hope they can keep him. The fact is, Wright hasn't practiced and you have Pryor, Love, etc, who are cheaper, younger and healthier versions than that. Love what Wright does, but he hasn't practiced. Maybe it's by design for a PUP scenario, which is clearly possible, but I think they need more than 1 sub rusher in a 4-3. So, that leaves Cunningham or Moore as a subrusher option, but you aren't cutting Cunningham. And Moore shows way too much value as well, so to me it's Wright and Anderson as bubble guys. Clearly, Wright is far more expensive than Moore or Anderson. You could keep Anderson and Moore and still be well under what Wright costs. Hate to say it like that, but it's true. Eric Moore probably has a slight advantage over Anderson in that Moore played here last year and has some 3-4 system experience as well. I would keep 9 D Linemen. Ellis, Wilfork, Haynesworth, Carter, Pryor, Love, G. Warren, Eric Moore, Anderson 6 LBs Nink, Cunningham, Fletcher, Spikes, Guyton, Tracey White That's 2 less D Linemen than last year, PUP Wright, to see where you are in Week 7, and that's a heck of a rotation, even without Wright. And that's also 2 full spots under the DL/LB roster totals last year if I am not mistaken (11 D Linemen in 2010, same LB totals (6)). 17 in 2010, 15 in 2011. That gives you that WR or RB room. Also, that makes people like G. Warren and even Ellis, assuming they're not starting and getting full reps, more valuable than they have been in years past. They're essentialy the same kind of player who can easily drop into a 3-4 DE spot right from that 4-3 DT spot. I liked Mike Reiss's list yesterday. I thought that was pretty much dead on. Overall, Bedard is miles better than that little whiny toad, Breer.

I'd like to see what he does over the next pre season games. Is he going to disappear or get washed out during running plays? It's a possibility, I hope not, because he's got some length and just explodes off the line.
Can Wright be placed on pup? He was practicing at the beginning of camp, wasn't he?
