I have updated my estimated roster.




I don't think Blackburn or Tyree will make the roster

Tyree - being injured and unable to go in training camp will give the others too much head start in a very tight competition for roster spots.

Blackburn - Clark will likely stay for his veteran experience, versaility and special teams play. The Giants have added speed and athleticsim at LB

With the depth of talent and athleticism at safety, corner and linbacker; it will be hard to justify roster spots based on special teams coverage alone.

The other issue is that the Giants special teams have been (at best) solid, but generally unspectacular. There is considerable room for improvement.




LS - Nick Leeson will allow Alford and DeOssie to focus more on positional work.

I hate to see Blackburn go but you're probably right Pete.

But Tyree not making the team? No way, he's a lock. What have Moss, Manningham, and Hall doen for the team that would put them all above Tyree? Nothing, he's a Super Bowl legend and he has always come up big in games, way back to when Manning was a rookie. he's a gamer, and he's too valuable on STs.

I think Tyree may start the season on PUP

he is still rehabbing and can't even run yet; he will have a tough time competing against the younsters for a roster spot.

Although it he is close to healthy they may be willing to go with him; either way it will be interesting Smile



I think Strahan's retirement may save Blackburn; If Kiwi moves to DE, then we can afford to keep another LB and Blackburn is a solid vet with experience at all positions

Here are my latest pre-training camp (23nd June) estimate of our opening day roster (barring injuries *touch wood*)


Offense - 26

  • QB (3) - Eli Manning, David Carr, Andre Woodson

  • WR (7) - Plaxico Burress, Amani Toomer, Steve Smith, Sinorice Moss, Mario Manningham, Domenik Hixon, Brandon London

  • TE (3) - Jeremy Shockey, Kevin Boss, Darcy Johnson

  • RB (4) - Brandon Jacobs, Ahmad Bradshaw, Derrick Ward, Reuben Droughns

  • FB (1) - Madison Hedgecock

  • OT (4) - Kareem McKenzie, David Diehl, Guy Whimper, Adam Koets

  • OG (2) - Chris Snee, Rich Seubert

  • OC (2) - Shaun O'Hara, Grey Ruegamer



Defense - 25

  • DE (4) - Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, Renaldo Wynn, Robert Henderson

  • DT (4) - Fred Robbins, Barry Cofield, Jay Alford, Ogmedi Nwagbuo

  • SLB (2) - Matthias Kiwanuka, Zak DeOssie

  • MLB (2) - Antonio Pierce, Jonathan Goff

  • WLB (3) - Gerris Wilkinson, Danny Clark, Brian Kehl

  • CB (6) - Aaron Ross, Corey Webster, Sam Madison, Terrell Thomas, RW McQuarters, Kevin Dockery

  • SS (2) - James Butler, Sammy Knight

  • FS (2) - Michael Johnson, Kenny Phillips



Specialists - (2)

  • K (1) - Lawrence Tynes

  • P (1) - Jeff Feagles



Practice Squad

  • OC - Digger Bujnoch
  • OG - Andrew Bain
  • S - Nehemiah Warrick
  • DE - Wallace Gillberry
  • DT - Nate Robinson
  • LB - Tank Daniels
  • WR - DJ Hall
  • TE - Michael Matthews




Note:

I am assuming:
- Tyree is not 100% healthy and is placed on PUP
- Kiwanuka does not move to DE
- Jeremy Shockey and Plaxico Burress resolve their issues with the team.
- We do not sign any major free agents
- The Giants choose to take an additional WR based on the number of guys on our roster and the fact that without a dedicated long snapper we have an additional roster spot available
