NFL Transactions | NFL Cuts to 53 & Statistical Trends to Focus Upon As a GM
By Ted Sundquist, The Football Educator
Class is in session. Today’s lesson is about where to focus your attention in the coming cut downs after NFL Training Camps to a 53 man roster. By now most of you have had the opportunity to see your favorite team play two NFL Preseason games and a majority of the playtime has been given to those aspiring young players looking to make their first club or to “grizzled” veterans looking to hang on and contribute in some form or fashion.
Think like an NFL General Manager
For the past year I’ve been writing about the various factors that play into efficiently putting together an NFL team from a professional football front office management perspective. I’ve playfully taken shots at “Fantasy Football” and I know that Leagues across America are drafting their teams as I write this post. But for just one instance, put yourself in the shoes of Jeff Ireland, or Jerry Reese, or Rod Graves, or Ruston Webster. Think like a real GM and how you would go about apportioning the cap and cash of your owner, and putting the best 53 on the field each Sunday for the NFL Regular Season.
