I'm happy to see Minnifield and Williams on the PS and hope they can crack the 53 sometime soon.

I'm very curious to know what Jawan Jamison did to even earn a spot on the PS

he looked decent in the game vs Tampa in the very small sample size we got. Why not keep him there.. work with him, never know what's gonna happen w/ Helu/Royster, and if someone might come knockin on the door for one of them.

Murphy is there for his Special Teams play but I'd much rather have Minnifield back there in coverage. God forbid anything happen to Chris Thompson but Williams could fill his return spot while playing other ST roles, if necessary. These two would likely be promoted to the 53 quickly should injuries occur.

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with our PS.

I think Compton is most likely going to have the biggest impact from this crop of PS players if Chase ends up plucked away by another team.
