    I noticed some missing names that I thought were on these teams, but overall seems like a well rounded group. To change things up…. Last week I wrote of players that might be interested in playing that might play a role. Since there are only a couple of spots left and a couple of days, looking at the stretch guys. At this point you have a solid core of players the rest would be really good cherries if they are in football shape. How about…Greedy Williams. I get the feeling he wants to show he can still play. Justin Layne DNP last year, Dede Westbrook and his brother Keke Coutee, Harrison Hand, Jordan Wilkins, Brandon Wilson, Bryan Edwards, Quintez Cephus, Daesean Hamilton, Antonio Callway, Vyncint Smith, Adam Shaheen, Jeremy Sprinkle, Jamarco Jones, Korey Cunningham, Will Richardson, Seantrell Henderson, Cortez Broughton, Quincy Roche, Wyatt Hubert, Kingsley Keke, Vincent Taylor, Jaylon Ferguson, Clay Johnston, Devante Bond, Nathan Gerry, Davion Taylor, John Reid, Armani Watts, Marquise Blair, Deionte Thompson. Hey these likely won’t happen, but these players are either a recognizable name, a talent a position that would be a game changer say OL or DL or or would give this player a chance to be seen playing, sharing this with the family instead of on a blog of practice film. If you have enough cash, play the game you love. Just my thought.
