Roster is at 52, how should the team replace 87? Sign a FA, such as Deion Branch? Promote Whalen or Rogers? Trade for a WR such as Nicks, Gordon?
If I were to rank the likelihood of such events it would go:
1. Promotion from Practice Squad - These guys already know the playbook. Luck's familiar with Whalen. Rogers is probably the most talented guy on the team, but not sure if he's there mentally.
2. Sign a FA - Would take them too long to learn a playbook before next game, plus there aren't too many attractive options out there.
3. Trades. 2 draft picks are already gone (1st and 4th), which is why I'm not sure Grigson will deal more picks for a player. It is curious that Conner still doesn't play, so maybe a team would be interested in a player for player swap. Maybe deal a 4th + Conner for a WR. Plus, Brazill could be used as trade bait.
