Preseason viewer’s guide: Locals make final case for a roster spot in Week 4 of preseason
Jay paul, ASSOCIATED PRESS
The final week of the preseason is here, which means it's time to give those players fighting for a spot on the 53-man active roster one final audition.
All games take place Thursday, giving teams a chance to evaluate their needs before Saturday's 2 p.m. MDT deadline to trim their rosters from 75 to 53 players.
During the first round of cuts this week, 14 players with Utah ties were released, while one, Utah's Joe Kruger, already joined another team. How many more locals will be on the chopping block this weekend?
For this week's preseason viewer's guide, I make my predictions of which local players will get cut. These players are indicated by a ** on the roster lists.
