- Players with strikethrough text—
strikethrough text—were present on the Jul. 25-26 edition of roster projections. They’ve been replaced with players who have asterisks (*).
- Scott Solomon hasn’t shown anything. Patrick Bailey offers more experience and he’s a better special-teams contributor. Jonathan Willard helped his case with an interception against the Falcons.
- Keeping three safeties on the main roster makes sense because some of the cornerbacks could play there in emergency situations. No one else has shown that they’re deserving of a roster spot just so they can control backup free safety. Maybe Daimion Stafford or Markelle Martin remain on practice squad.
