This isn’t exactly an article, but I’ve had three or four requests since the draft to publish an updated depth chart so I thought I’d triple check what I’ve got and post it, even though coach Rivera said yesterday that he plans to sign a few more players this week.
Rivera said that the team has 4 open roster spots, but I have checked that every name on my depth chart appears on the team website. The website and my depth chart each have 87 names, meaning 3 open roster spots.
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, and the number for Jamin Davis is estimated.
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) 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.
