Russ...bb has not historically carried 3 te's, especially since he started running more 2 TE sets. last year we carried 4 I believe, in gronk, Hern, fells and hooman. We may have even at some time carried 5 if you include Winslow for that 1-2 game span. Bottomline, IF bb continues his strategy utilizing multiple te's on the field together, he will need 4, especially if you consider that 3 of our top te's all have injury histories and are coming off injuries.
I think bb may go light at rb to insure he gets another TE or WR on the roster. Depends how much they like moe for example, who they IR, who they can keep on the PS and who stands out in camp. Too early to tell anything at the moment, but my guess, based on what bb has done in the past, who he drafted this year, who was signed, etc...is that he keeps 4 rb's (Ridley, Vereen, boldin, Washington), 4 TE's (gronk, Hern, Ballard, hooman), 5 WR's (amendola, Dobson, Boyce, Hawkins, slater)...Edelman goes on pup to start season. Moe goes on IR, bb keeps another rb and TE on the PS, cuts fells, Blount, Jenkins, jones.
