Since the current roster thread has gone over 1000 posts, its time to start a new one.
I would encourage anybody on here to post their discussion about what they think of guys on the roster. We have an FA thread and a draft thread for a reason, but I'd like to think that we can keep this one around too.
I will also be making regular updates to this first post as players are signed and cut ect.
