    Don't forget Orr. It's unlikely we're cutting Orr, which really puts Calico down there. I think he'll be gone. As you say, special team or Jones staying out would give him a chance, but it looks like those aren't going to happen.

    I think they'll move Calico up the depth chart in the preseason just to get a chance to evaluate him against better competition. Givens and Bennett probably won't play very long, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Wade and Calico come in next through the first couple of games. If Calico dropsies against good competition, he'll be gone before preseason is up, I think.

    But I'll go ahead and be in the minority -- I think he'll have a decent showing in preseason -- I just don't know if it will be enough to save his spot.

    I don't really have a sense of Orr's performance at all. Does anyone? I hear far too little about him.

    Don't know if this factors into anything, but I was at TJ Maxx in Brentwood yesterday, and Calico's #87 jersey had been marked down to $9.99

    McRatbird's was at $19.99

    It's very hard to see Calico on this team.. first of all it's difficult to compare ACL injuries, but isn't it surprising that Jones has 1) recovered in 7-8 months, 2) lost 10-15 lbs and increased his speed, 3) seems to be ready to go mentally, 4) has worked on his hands and framing the catch, while Calico has faltered... if Jones go to PUP,Calico is still 7th on the depth chart.. Calico likely goes to another team for a 5th round pick next year..
