We have enough backs already with Clinton Portis, Ladell Betts, Rock Cartwright, John Simon, Chad Morton, Dahrran Dierdrick not to mention H-backs Chris Cooley and Mike Sellers. Add to those the two Rookies. No team needs this many backs, and i know half will get cut but why sign Forsey. It seems to me the team only needs CP, Ladell and Rock along with Cooley and one of the rookies. Maybe another back for more depth but does any team really need more than 6 backs?

I think Cartwright and Morton will be cut, and I have to admit I've never even heard of Dahrran Dierdrick. I wouldn't doubt it if Sellers is cut too. He had some good plays on special teams, but he had a lot of stupid penalties.

Ok with the signing of forsey that brings us to 11 running backs, if they do cut those three it still leaves 8. I just think that's taking up too many roster spots for RBs.

I only counted 10. I don't think it's fair to group the H-backs and the running backs all together. We definitely need 3 H-backs, and I would say that you want at least 4 guys who can play running back. It sounds like we might have one more than that at RB. Assuming the guy is a special teams player, I don't see the harm.

Will Cooley Be starting at H-back or will they put a fullback we drafted back there and line Cooley up at TE?

I think Cooley will be playing H-back which means he'll line up as a tight end too. He just won't be a blocking tight end.

I guess the answer is both technically. The H-back is a hybrid of a fullback and a tight end.

BTW, when I said I only counted 10, I forgot to count the guy you mentioned in the subject.

Exactly the H-back can play tight end so why have 2 h-backs and 5 tight ends.
Does this sound good for the final roster:
CP, Ladell, Simon/Forsey at TB
White, Broughton at FB
Cooley at HB
Royal and Kashetta at TE

You're losing me here. Are you saying that you only want one H-back on the roster? It's probably the most important position in Gibbs' offense.

Who are the 5 TEs anyway?

Well the only other H-back listed is Mike Sellers so i figure they'd cut him, and the 5 tight ends are:
Jabari Holloway
David Kashetta
William Palmer
Robert Royal
and Kory D-ickerson

White and Broughton will play H-back. I'm sure you can expect some of those tight ends to go once cuts are being made.

Yeah I forgot they'd be playing H-back so that'd leave us with 3 h-backs, 3 T-backs, and 2 tight ends hopefully once the cuts are made. ok that doesn't sound so bad.

Cartwright used to be a fullback so he's not a speedster, are return men are Moss, and Morton if he doesn't get cut.
