You never want to say "never" when it comes to BillB and personel moves but in this case i have to speak up...
Jarvis Green no way, is a proven utility guy off the bench and a situational sack master.
Dave Thomas not likely, we have no fullbacks that will stick on the roster so tight ends fill that blocking need. Thomas, other than one real big boneheaded play has been soild both as a blocker and receiving, after a rough sophomore season he should bounce back strong. BillB likes tightends, if one gets cut it will be because of how contract negotiations are going, not because of talent; all the vets have value and talent.
Matt Guts looked just as good as Cassal and O'Connell at times in preseason games and throwing, I like his makeup; size, height and guts.
Richardson probably will make it for depth reasons alone, although not particularly talented in any one area he has a lot of Randall Gay-like qualities; he is solid all around.
I believe one of the older guys won't make it through training camp, either Shawn Springs or Joey Galloway, just due to their age I'm making a calculated guess. Though it wouldn't surprise me if Leigh Bodden got cut either, it seems every year we acquire a tall corner to cover the taller receivers only to find out they can't play all that well.
Nick Kaczur would be another likely candidate to go, he's had PR issues but the bigger issue is picking up the outside speed rush and just an overall lack of talent. We need to upgrade to larger, longer and stronger tackles who can stuff rushers into the turf.
