This isn’t exactly an article, but there’s been a lot of recent roster activity so I thought I’d update the chart and post it.
The numbers on the chart next to some players’ names represent the 2021 cap hit. It is only listed for players who have a hit over $1m.
The color coding used follows this key:
When it doesn’t seem clear who is the starter or the backup, I have generally listed veterans ahead of rookies.
Where a position has two or more slots (ie. DT, DE, WR, CB, RG/LG) I haven’t made any real effort to list the backups behind the starter they are most likely to replace. To some extent, I have just tried to balance the space on the chart.
The changes from last week are the addition of DB Chris Miller, whom I have listed at strong safety despite the team announcement that called him a cornerback, the swap of Josh Harvey-Clemons for Joe Walker (who was Hasaan Reddick’s backup in AZ) at LB, and a reshuffling of the offensive line with Morgan Moses and Geron Christian being released.
There are now two open roster spots. I doubt whether Ron Rivera will wait a long time to fill them.
