I typically don't get into the minutiae of rosterology for whatever reason. It's tremendously fun and a great time waster, though, so let's do some of it cause it's Friday. I just read Joe Reedy's post saying that he believes Briscoe makes the roster over Cosby because of his greater potential and the fact that he wouldn't clear waivers while Cosby might (which I guess means we could keep both rather than just one).
So, dear readers, what the hell would you do with this situation? I think it's a particularly interesting case because on the one hand you have:
Cosby: special teams player extraordinaire and decent enough back up receiver and clearly all around awesome intangible and hustle guy (threw first and last block of Scott's return TD last year vs Pitt)
On the other:
Briscoe: sort of intriguing upside guy that I know very little else about
Why on earth carry both JT O'Sullivan and Jordan Palmer and force yourself to make the choice between these receivers anyway? Cut one of those guys. We're fucked if Carson goes down regardless so who cares about backup QBs. Cut JT so you don't hurt the Palmer family vibe.
If not that, I'd prefer to see Briscoe let go and keep the valuable swiss army knife guy Cosby. So Briscoe might be good later. Newsflash: there might be no later in Bengaldom. The team can win now, the lockout looms and who the fuck knows after that.
Or cut Simpson. Or Dan Coats.
What would you do?
