With the first preseason game in the books, you'd figure there would be more changes to our new 53-man roster but, alas, there were not.
There was just a 1-for-1 swap out from our last version and it's not all that shocking: I'm pulling cornerback JonathanJones off the trade block. I gained his roster spot from another defensive position and it pains me to do it.
But there are a couple of factors involved with this version of the 53-man roster that we haven't touched on before: guaranteed money and scheme fit. They both could loom large over the final cuts. In the former's case, it will likely restrict the team's ability to make a few possibly blatant cut. The latter means some players aren't quite the fit they once were.
