This will not be the last we hear from Veach & Co. They are working on trades and players to bring back to the practice squad. One will be Danny Shelton. The other may be Fountain and Cornell Powell.

This team is one of the strongest on offense and defense, with the number one O line and a much-improved defense, this team has everything to make it back to the Super Bowl this season.

With a 16 man practice squad and room on the IR, it's almost a certainty that we will see some of the players cut right back with the team. Be afraid NFL, be very afraid.
