Buffalo Bulls NFL Updates

Sorry for being a day late on this. I had family obligations which kept me busy yesterday.

There are a lot of 53 man roster projections out there, here who is "out" and "in" according to the roster projections I have seen this week.

Khalil Mack - In  (The Question is: Will he be the defensive player in the NFL)

James Starks - In (The question is: Does his new 2 year deal have any effect on Lacy)

Green Bay Packers priority free agents: Eddie Lacy
Importance to team: High. The Packers re-signed Starks to a two-year deal this off-season, a somewhat perplexing move given his price and age. But it’s clear that the team feels they need insurance in case Lacy never rebounds to the heights of his first two seasons.

Branden Oliver - In (The question is:Can you find a guy who is kinder in the locker room and more hard core on the field)

Mailbag: Which Player is Most Primed for a Comeback Season? | San Diego Chargers
Here's a weird one for you. Which Charger's play on the field is most different from his personality off of it? – Petey Buryk A:  Possibly the weirdest question I’ve ever gotten, but I love these off the wall ones!  I’m going to go with Branden Oliver. He is such a physical runner, but might be one of the quietest guys in the locker room.  As soft spoken as he can be at times, he plays with that much ferocity on the field.

Jake Schum - In (The question is: Can he out punt the gun brought in by Tampa in the of season)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 53-man roster projection leans towards youth - NFC South- ESPN
Specialists (3): PK Roberto Aguayo, P Jake Schum, LS Andrew DePaola. Schum beats out Bryan Anger for the punt job.

Kristjan Sokoli - Out (The question is: Is this projection just an outlier? I've seen him project in up until this week)

Seahawks 53-man roster projection: A post-minicamp look at who makes it and who doesn’t | The Seattle Times
KEEP: Garry Gilliam, Mark Glowinski, Justin Britt, Germain Ifedi, J’Marcus Webb, Bradley Sowell, Rees Odhiambo, Joey Hunt, Patrick Lewis. CUT: Terry Poole, Kona Schwenke, Lene Maiava, Kristjan Sokoli, Will Pericak, George Fant.

Josh Thomas - Reply hazy try again (The question is: Does his veteran status help him upend a UDFA?)

Cowboys 53-man roster projection does not include a 2015 starter - NFL Nation- ESPN
Brown is getting work inside and outside. Olatoye was a starter at the end of last season and has good size. Jeremiah McKinnon, an undrafted free agent, has a chance. So does veteran Josh Thomas.

Steven Means - Out, Not mentioned on any 53 man this week

John Kling - Out (The Question Is: Can he show more than size)

Bears' 53-man roster projection includes Harvard TE Ben Braunecker - Chicago Bears Blog- ESPN
Offensive line (9): Kyle Long, Bobby Massie, Charles Leno, Ted Larsen, Cody Whitehair, Hroniss Grasu, Nate Chandler, Nick Becton, Jason Weaver (cut: Adrian Bellard, Cornelius Edison, John Kling, Martin Wallace, Donovan Williams).

Matt Weiser - Out, Not mentioned on any 53 man this week

Joe Licata - Out (The Question Is: Can he win the practice squad job)

Cincinnati Bengals 53-man roster projection includes WR Jake Kumerow - AFC North- ESPN
Quarterbacks (2): Andy Dalton, AJ McCarron. (Cut: Keith Wenning, Joe Licata) It's a common Bengals practice to take only two quarterbacks into a season, and Dalton and McCarron certainly have proven capable of leading Cincinnati's offense.
