    I suppose JJ was brought in to simulate read-option for practice. But I would have liked to have seen Matt Scott or Tyler Wilson instead as a project QB.

    Unga....wtf? Is this guy anything special on STs? If so, I haven't seen it. Allen, if he had eligibility, would be better. He was good enough to make the regular team and got hosed by an ill-timed injury. He's a decent ball player. Be a shame if we can't hand onto Tolliver too.

    I think Unga is going to make a long career about being in the NFL without actually appearing in a regular season game.

    I still can't figure out why Tolliver didn't get a spot.

    We are still developing Unga to play whatever the hell position he plays. No room for a wide receiver that looked good this preseason.

    I agree, if Unga was worth a damn he'd be the teams FB by now. I liked what I saw out of Tolliver far more then that of Unga

    Was Tolliver claimed on waivers by anyone?

    no but I heard the 8th was a OT, named Jamaal Johnson-Webb.

    You cannot get rid of J-Webb Nation.

    QB Jerrod Johnson
    WR Ricardo Lockette
    TE Fendi Onobun
    FB Harvey Unga

    I could be completely wrong on this, but isn't there a rule whereby a team with only 2 QBs on their regular roster can keep a 3rd on the PS without him counting against the 8-man limit?

    Count me as very surprised Emery didn't sign Tolliver to the PS (over Unga). And with Whiteside, Washington, and now Bass, we are way heavier at reserve DE than DT.

    JT Thomas has already been claimed by the Jags, he's a goner. Never made it through waivers which is no surprise since he's a decent player. I suppose they're looking at Franklin (who we kept on the PS instead) as a future backup MLB behind Bostic. I doubt DJ Williams is here for more than this season only if Bostic sews up the starting job for the future as expected.

    Yeah, I don't get letting Tolliver go and not trying to PS him over someone like Unga. FB is not a high priority position and there are always guys available to fill that role, if a team even carries one, for pretty cheap. Decent WR prospects seem harder to come by than FBs without using a draft pick.

    I felt the same way. I was hoping Tolliver was going to land on the PS.

    We need to give him #73. That way all the J-Webb nation fans will still have a functioning jersey.
