Thinking about the 53-man roster

I was thinking about the roster tonight, so I decided to put some names and numbers down on paper and see how it turns out. Here is the roster I would put together. Guys in bold are who I consider locks; guys in italics are the bubble players who make it.

Drew Bledsoe, Tony Romo

Julius Jones, Marion Barber, Tyson Thompson

Terrell Owens, Terry Glenn, Patrick Crayton,
Sam Hurd, Jamaica Rector, Skyler Green (* see below)

Flozell Adams, Kyle Kosier, Andre Gurode, Marco Rivera, Marc Colombo, Al Johnson, Cory Procter, Rob Petitti,
Pat McQuistan

Jason Witten, Anthony Fasano, Ryan Hannam,
Lousaka Polite, Tony Curtis

Chris Canty, Marcus Spears, Jay Ratliff, Jason Hatcher

Jason Ferguson, Thomas Johnson

DeMarcus Ware, Greg Ellis, Kevin Burnett, Al Singleton,
Rocky Boiman

Bradie James, Akin Ayodele, Bobby Carpenter,
Ryan Fowler

Terence Newman, Anthony Henry, Aaron Glenn, Jacques Reeves,
Nate Jones

Roy Williams, Keith Davis, Pat Watkins,
Abram Elam

Mike Vanderjagt, Shaun Suisham

Mat McBriar

L.P. Ladouceur

My practice squad would look like this (if we can get them all through and without thinking of any free agents available for the squad who are still out there).

Stanley, Hoyte, Batiste, L. Williams, Baker, Glymph, Austin, Bowen

* The one area I'm still not settled on is cutting Fabini to keep Green. In truth, I'm probably 50-50 on this right now. I think Green's in serious trouble, and if he doesn't produce this week, he could be history and they might keep Fabini instead. Another possibility is to cut Green and Fabini, and keep Oliver Hoyte.

OK, fire away. Let's hear your latest roster based on last night's game.
