oh, and i figure kevin faulk can fit fine into the 5th receiver in 5 receiver sets. some tough choices to make here, and of course there is movement between squad, released, and pup players during the season. i hope to see tate by week 6 suiting up. but then, who do you drop?
it seems one of the biggest points of contempt may be do you end up cutting wright or taylor? does taylor really still have gas left in the tank, or is it more prudent to keep that last all inmportant d-line veteran around in case of injuries?
