Updated 53 Man Roster Projection

Craig Terrill has held a roster spot for many seasons by being good enough. With Carroll's emphasis on competition and youth, good enough may no longer be good enough.

Woooo...!! New computer day!

So fresh, so clean, so not threatening to overheat and burn down my apartment at any moment. It will be good to put in a full day's work again. Let's start with a nuts and bolts post. Love this keyboard.

Lots of shakeup. This roster looked solid a few weeks ago, but some young players have asserted themselves and some older players have squandered opportunities. How Pete Carroll and John Schneider handle this roster will test their commitment to playing young players.

Note: I expect Seattle to add talent cut from other teams to fill out their practice squad. That is, if they keep youth on the roster. Otherwise, you can shift some players to the practice squad like Cord Park and E.J. Wilson and replace them with Jordan Babineaux and Craig Terrill.
