Man, that offense is LOADED.  Rockon

But didn't we release Ladarius Green?

P.S. -- I hope we end up resigning DeAngelo Williams. There doesn't seem to be much interest, so at this point, we could probably pay him in wampum.  Pi_bigsmile 

He was a good fit. Solid vet, excellent role player.

Haley has to start doing what Whiz and Arians did with Parker.  

Every 3rd series, no matter if he touches the ball or not? Connor comes in for Bell.  

Have to start trying to preserve Bell's legs.

Yes, my bad. Ladarius was cut. This make the roster a bit tougher to predict. The WR position is loaded, I completely forgot about the FA WR we signed in the off season. I removed Green and add Gay to CB. Tomlin may like his veteran presence there and I'm not 100% sure Golsen will make it:

Defense:

DE-(4)-Heyward-Tuitt-Alualu-Walton

DT-(2)-Hargrave-McCullers

OLB-(4)-Harrison-Dupree-Watt-Moates

ILB-(4)-Shazier-Williams-Fort-Matakevich

CB-(6)-Burns-Cockrell-Sutton-Golsen-Sensabaugh-Allen-Gay


Safety (4) - Mitchell-Davis-Golden-Dangerfield

Offense:

Qb-(3)- Roethlisberger-Jones-Dobbs

Rb-(3)-Bell-Connor-Davis

FB-(1)-Nix

WR-(6)-Brown-Bryant-Schuster-Rogers-Ayers-Bey

TE-(3)-James-Grimble-Johnson

OT-(3)-Villanueva-Gilbert-Hawkins

OG-(4)-DeCastro-Foster-Hubbard-Cooper

C-(2)-Pouncey-Finney

Neither here nor there but I actually got to see Ben Roethlisbergers last college game. Back in 2003 Miami of Ohio played against my UCF Knights. Day after Thanksgiving. I pulled an all-nighter at the office in order to have the time to go. I scalped a seat to sit in the cavernous Citrus Bowl to watch it with only 20,000 others.

The game was pretty much over in pre-game warmups.

56-21 and right there and then I knew he was going to be an NFL draft pick. (Although I didn't know how high he would go. MAC QB's have a stigma.)

The thing I remember the most was me wearing my old Vinny Testaverde jersey to the game and people kept coming up to me and saying, "Hey Vinny, get in there." (As in saying, UCF QB's suck and you could probably do better).

Ironically though that there were about 5 or 6 UCF players that would go on to the NFL besides such as Brandon Marshall, Matt Prater (who doubled as a rugby punter), Atari Bigby, Joe Burnett, etc...
