Our most recent prediction for the final 53-man roster has the team looking like:
The prediction comes with the caveat that, it's looking more and more like Pouncey will start the year on the roster and not on the PUP list. If he does manage to claim his spot on the 53-man roster, Brenner is the most likely to come off this list, unless the team decides to release Thigpen or Thomas.
Today is going to be a long day, with lots of rumors and speculation. Check back often to make sure you are up to date on the latest.
