Chicago Sun Times has released the likey final 53-man roster. This is not official, but they have been announcing all the cuts with accuracy.

With the final cuts known (rookie Chester Adams is likely to receive an injury settlement) here is a look at what the 53-man roster looks like:

QUARTERBACK (3)--Orton, Grossman, Hanie.

RUNNING BACK (4)--Forte, Jones, Wolfe, Peterson.

FULLBACK (1)--McKie.

WIDE RECEIVER (6)--Hester, Lloyd, Bennett, Booker, Bradley, Davis.

TIGHT END (3)--Clark, Olsen, Davis.

OFFENSIVE LINE (8)--Kreutz, Beekman, Metcalf, Garza, Tait, St. Clair, Williams, Barton.

TOTAL OFFENSE: 25

DEFENSIVE LINE (9)--Harris, Adams, Dvoracek, Idonije, Harrison, Brown, Ogunleye, Anderson, Toeaina.

LINEBACKER (6)--Urlacher, Briggs, Hillenmeyer, Williams, McClover, Roach.

SAFETY (5)--Brown, McGowan, D. Manning, Payne, Steltz.

CORNERBACK (5)--Tillman, Vasher, Graham, Bowman, McBride.

TOTAL DEFENSE: 25

SPECIALISTS (3)--Gould, Maynard, Mannelly.


There could still be movement, especially Sunday involving the waiver wire. The most logical are for change would be on the offensive line. We'll see what shakes out there.

Question, in the Madden video game, teams are allowed to have 55 players on the roster. For final preseason roster cuts, do teams in the NFL have to limit their roster to 53 and then they have 2 available spots after all the teams cuts or is 53 players the max now?

I'm happy with the cuts and the roster looks even better w/ us keeping Hanie on it.

The only thing I don't like seeing is anthony adams. When exactly is he going to play? Waste of a spot, we would have been better served to keep Bazuin.
