I don't like Minnifield dropped to the practice squad. He should be contending for serious playing time, not just becoming one of the fifty three. I'm also disappointed Skye Dawson was given so little chance to make the team. Dawson has jaw-dropping moves and I hope he gets picked up by somebody who needs him.


I don't like the Minnifield situation either, but a CB that's 4th on the chart needs to play special teams, and it's been mentioned on here that he doesn't. I really think he will move up next year and take over for D. Hall.

I do like that we're deep enough to drop someone like Chase to the PS.

Does anyone know why Minnifield doesn't play ST?

I know what you guys are saying about Minnifield. But does anybody think we're really going to be carrying four QBs for the entire season? I kind of believe Chase will end up on the 53 sooner than later. Just a hunch.

11 DB's would also be unusual.

Possibly health concerns. He JUST got healthy, so why subject him to the most viscous team right away? I'm sure that they wanted to evaluate him at the position for which he was brought in to play, 1st and foremost.

I'm sure that he'll play ST in the future and make the 53.

One injury to one of our current corners and he's back on the roster. I certainly hope that don't happen but, its good to still have Chase around for that reason.

We're lucky he cleared waivers.

I understand he had offers but preferred to stay with the Redskins

My understanding was that other teams "expressed interest", but I have no idea how that interest manifested itself, or whether there were any indications from Minnifield as to how he would react to such interest.

In other words: dunno.

But I do think we're lucky he's still with us. I don't think it's a wild stretch of imagination to think of Amerson and Minnifield being our starter corners within a couple of years.
