Some love for the little known TE from a small school in Dea Moines, IA. ;)

Saubert has really made his mark on special teams and stayed in the NFL because of it. Hanging on by a string to stay in the NFL the past few years he appears on his way to make our roster.

He's been doing well catching balls downfield too. Glad to have players like him. I call him Sherbet.

I’m guessing if we keep him then Beck gets cut unless we decide to keep a fullback right?

I'm betting Adam Prentice makes the team as a FB - HB and special teams player. His blocking has been otherworldly.

Guessing Beck makes it. He has been getting majority of reps at FB and is our #4 TE. Saubert is good on special teams. I don’t think Prentice makes the team but Mingo could be right. My money is on it that he doesn’t though.

Seems like nowadays most teams keep 4 TE’s if a few play special teams. TE’s can be pretty versatile/helpful in many ways. Since FB has kind of vanished it has opened up room for more TE’s to take up more roster spots.

Can we bring up 2 players from the practice squad on game day? If so that maybe Prentice’s way to be used. Doubtful a full back is claimed on waivers.

I will say Prentice can be stashed on the practice squad easier than some other players.

I can’t remember if that rule still applies this year. But even if it does the limit was “3 times” per player. Last year Alijah Holder and Josh Watson maxed out so the next time we signed them to the active roster.

We may end up keeping 3 WR’s on the PS, IMO.

Jeremy Cox was sorta an h-back on the PS last year.
