    No guarantee we lose him, but we probably will.

    Why not Spillman? I would think he has a better chance of to getting picked up.

    Who else is freaked out by all the moves being made on our lines?

    Probably means that Cesaire isn't so healthy yet.

    If he makes it w/out being picked up in next 24hrs I'd put money on him going to practice squad and then flip-flopping him and coleman once cesaire comes back... unless he doesn't :(

    Andre was super super nice to me last year at the blood drive took the time to chat it up, lovely young man who has put a lot of time and work into being a Charger. I'm happy for him, sad for Gartell and Jacques tho. Bittersweet~

    Surprise cut.

    But I don't know if any other team would pick him up and put him on their roster. Well, aside from within our division, just so they can spite us.

    They're telling me Travis Johnson (a former 1st rounder) ain't good enough to come in and play Cesaire's spot!?. He, OG and Martin surely have enough between them to handle the spot!?. Now we run the risk of losing a guy we have developed after drafting him, GJ. This doesn't make sense to me. No need to bring Coleman in imho. Crazy.

    But hey wot do I know.

    RB's aren't that hard to develop, DB. Right now we're weaker at DL than at RB.

    We can rotate these guys & keep them fresh, a la NY Giants.

    Vaughn Martin's a rookie still learning the American way of football.

    Travis Johnson is still recouperating from his surgery and isn't 100%.

    Jacques Cesaire is injured.

    This makes sense.

    We're loaded at RB, and Gartrell has about as much chance of getting playing time as Osgood.

    Meanwhile, Coleman will likely rotate or start the entire game at DE.

    Gartrell will make the PS after clearing 24 hour waivers.

    That was going to be my question.

    So, if he is picked up by another team, he has to stay on the active roster, right?

    Yup.

    Any team can sign any player off any other team's PS at least 6 days before the next game (or 10 days if there's a bye week). However, that signing team must sign the PS player to the active roster with at least a full one-year contract for the league minimum.
