But we did have six corners in 2016. I think it is a worthwhile point that if we keep 6 corners you would want them active on special teams. That's why I'm saying that Newman and Alexander can not take it for granted that they will both make the roster. Of course if another corner gets hurt, then they're both in. Sherels is done, I'm afraid. We think that every year- this time it happens.

They'll keep six corners. No reason not to.


It must be that I'm getting old because I can't remember who the 6th corner was last year. Who was that player?

Both Alexander and Newman do not excel on special teams. It's possible they keep them both though, especially if Newman is considered to be an extra safety. We are definitely adding two rookies to the team. I bet Hill will be a stud on special teams.


Rhodes
Waynes
Newman
Alexander
Price
Sherels


Sorry, but Price not on last year's team. He was released on Sept 2nd.


I know they kept six corners. Tocho?

They were talking about him being both. I know he didnt make the initial roster, but they signed him to it later.

Eh, whatever lol. Not that important for me to figure it out.

I don't believe Tocho made the roster either. He was off and on the practice squad so he still belongs to the Vikings.

I was listening to KFAN today and one of guys with Kriesel today reported that Mike Hughes was the real deal. He said that he watched him practice during the mini-camp and there was sort of a buzz among the other players who seemed to be genuinely excited about the new guy who was going to play with them. Sorry, I don't which voice it was. Joe something. He's not a regular.

Paul Allen came on later and said he expects that Newman will be used more as safety. He also likes Aruna and Zylstra's chances of making the team.

He said that the new offensive coordinator will expand upon a "motion, movement and stretch" philosophy that we have seen to some extent in the past. I'm not sure what that means.

He said that Cousins does move really well while still looking down the field, which can help some of the deficiency of the offensive line. He has some hope that the offensive line could benefit with some second year players who can take a nice step forward.

He also said that this team has a chance to be "considerably better than 11-5" . With our schedule, I would take that, but whoa, if we do better than that than this team will truly be elite. He seems to think that the offense will take some time to develop and click.

The pass/ run option play is something that Cousins did experience at Michigan State. (I heard that at another part of the show.)

The guy we traded for, from the 49ers I think. Signed as a free agent with Broncos.

I'll have to look him up

You're right. I forgot about him. Thank you. So there were six last year, too. So, perhaps Alexander's job is safe. Paul Charchian was saying on the radio yesterday that he would not be surprised if he got cut. We'll see. Too early.

He had six tackles, two assists and one pass defended. Maybe I can be forgiven for forgetting him.

I know from chatting before that Ian is not an "end of the roster" guy, so he should be forgiven, too. I would say, I am interested in the end of the roster, but I want them to be good at special teams. .

there is absolutely no way they cut alexander - he's only making $1.2m with $650k dead money...if/when hughes beats him out he'll be a solid backup for a couple of years...it would not shock me if newman didn't make the final 53 - zero dead money...i think we keep all six....

I have been watching the Condensed games and have noticed that Mack is actually pretty good. I would be shocked if he was cut.

Nothing short of him of abusing his girlfriend or dog will see Mac get cut during this training camp.

Actually, I take pride in knowing our entire roster, including camp guys. Forgetting about Brock brothers me a small touch lol.

Brock was terrible.

Hopefully Hill will be better. Shouldn't be a problem.

I certainly expected more from Brock as well.

Was exposed every time he was put in.

Staggering how far we’ve come in secondary talent since the low of the Wasswa Serwanga days..

Hill could turn it all around, but a pretty low risk gamble worth taking in our current situation. IMO.

Most Gopher fans knew Brock was JAG. I was actually pretty amazed at how much ppl were excited when we signed him.

I was excited becuz he was a veteran guy we had for what I thought was solid depth. Oh well. Still mad at myself about forgetting that we traded a 7th rounder to Seattle for him.

i think that if hughes wins the starting position at nickel cb then there's a chance that newman doesn't make the final 53...if alexander is starting, i don't think zimmer wants two rookies as the next man up....

Who is the 7th corner that makes Newman expendable if hes not the nickel? Remember that Zimmer loves his leadership within the secondary.

He played one season for the Gophers and wasn't particularly impressive. I guess, in his defense, that whole D was pretty blah.

If they decide to let Newman go, he may transition directly to our DB coaching staff.

Perhaps you subconsciously wanted to forget about him after watching him play.

Al least that's what I told myself.

Anyone else getting Blair Walsh flashbacks?


No, because this guy was money in the clutch at Auburn.

Hopefully he's an absolute horndog with no romantic notions.



I hear that ....
