Predicting the Final 13 Cuts

The roster sits at 67, with Lane Johnson to be suspended. Who will be the unlucky 13? A positional look.

Quarterbacks

Looks like the position is fine with its three, Nick Foles, Mark Sanchez, and Matt Barkley. Potential Barkley trade rumors are something to monitor, of course.

Running Backs

At least one more has to go with five on the roster. I'll go with Kenjon Barner, with Matthew Tucker making the roster. If Chris Polk's shaky, you need Tucker as the power back, making Barner dispensable.

Wide Receivers

Eight remain, and they're working to get down to six. If Damaris Johnson's part of trade rumors, I don't look at him staying, despite the sharply-improved summer. Ditto Will Murphy, whose Oregon ties can only get him so far.

Tight Ends

Looks like Trey Burton's staying, and the team will carry four. There's a 10% chance James Casey is a surprising cut at the end.

Offensive Linemen

Kevin Graf is likely a goner, despite a good job filling in the other night with Matt Tobin's injury. If Burton's making it now, may as well drop Andrew Gardner, the low man on the back-up totem pole.

Specialists

What do you mean Alex Henery's still here? Tell him to answer his phone.

Defensive Linemen

The five ends will survive, but you only need two nose tackles. Damion Square's a tough cut, with Wade Keliikipi a bit less so.

Linebackers

Josh Kaddu's conspicuously hanging around, and will likely meet his fate this afternoon.

Cornerbacks

Curtis Marsh and Roc Carmichael are expected goners behind Jaylen Watkins and the four corners that could be starters.

Safeties

Keelan Johnson will probably go, and the unimpressive Ed Reynolds is likely out as well. The rookie, however, is certainly practice-squad eligible.
