Thursday night’s game for the San Diego Chargers doesn’t mean much for the whole team, but it could mean the world for a few players on the roster. There are a number of guys that are looking to win a roster spot with the team and they will be looking to perform against the Cardinals.
This will be the game of their lives on Thursday. Here are a few players that are on the bubble.
If you missed my thoughts on the situation earlier in the week, you can go ahead and check out this post. He has not played well and could miss out on a roster spot.
The Chargers will likely keep 4 running backs on the roster. It will be either Oliver or Marion Grice to own that roster spot. Oliver showed some nice moves in the first game, but didn’t really stand out since then.
The rookie draft selection was brought onto the roster in order to be a weapon in the future. Could he have lost his role with Oliver’s production on the field.
This is a numbers game at the end. Will Tutu get a spot on this roster for his role on special teams and his ability to play receiver. There are a number of receivers on the Chargers roster that are injury prone.
The only reason that I want him to stay on the roster is because we would have Big Willie Style on the roster. The fresh prince of Bel Air. He is looking to be the swing tackle on the roster and is battling with Mike Harris for that roster spot.
The battle will be with Willie Smith for that swing tackle role. Clary is not available and one of these guys will win a job.
He likely makes the roster with the injury to Kwame Geathers and the team will be looking to develop him on the field.
Keiser is one of the players that is able to provide a pass rush on this defense. He is still young and could push Tourek Williams off of the roster.
Williams was selected by Tom Telesco last season and he is expected to add some pass rush. Keiser has been more productive in his opportunities. Which one has a higher ceiling?
