And it is that time to look over that roster once again. There are a few differences from the UT. Here we go.

Quarterbacks (3) QB1 Philip Rivers QB2 Charlie Whitehurst QB3 Brad Sorensen

Notes: Whitehurst earned his spot back on the roster. In my head, it still makes a ton of sense to keep just a couple of quarterbacks, but I can see the guys at the top keeping a 3rd quarterback this year.

Runningbacks (5) RB1 Ryan Mathews RB2 Danny Woodhead RB3 Fozzy Whittaker RB4 Edwin Baker FB2 Leron McClain

Notes: Made some changes to this side of the roster. Whittaker and Baker now both make the roster and and Ronnie Brown hit the streets. I am not sure what use you can get out of Brown. He brings the same skill set as Danny Woodhead. Whittaker and Baker can bring some youth to the table. If Chris Gronkowski could play special teams, he might be worthy of a spot.

Tight Ends (3) TE1 Antonio Gates TE2 John Phillips TE3 Ladarius Green

Notes: Ladarius Green is making a name for himself during this preseason. He is a force to mess with in the passing game. He could see more and more action as the season goes on.

Wide Receivers (5) WR1 Malcom Floyd WR2 Vincent Brown WR3 Eddie Royal WR4 Keenan Allen WR5 Mike Willie

Notes: Still no use for Robert Meachem on this roster. I don’t know what he can do for this team. Mike Willie looks to be a better fit on the roster than him. The new addition of Seyi Ajirotutu should give Willie a little competition for that 5th spot on the roster. Nobody really else is.

Offensive Linemen (9) LT1 King Dunlap LG1 Chad Rinehart C1 Nick Hardwick RG1 Jeromey Clary RT1 DJ Fluker T Max Starks G Rich Ohrnberger G/C Stephen Schilling C David Molk

Notes: We probably will be looking for more depth on this part of the roster when first cuts happen. We need any help we can get on this side of the ball.
