:icon_smile: I'm impressed. Nine rookies are on the 53 man roster and seven others are either on IR or the practioce squad. That means 16 rookies made the team in some fashion or other. Rather a substantial number .

Yes. It was a good offseason for picking up the young ones. I think we had a good draft.

That is a fairly high number for a team that was already one of the youngest in the league, coming off an NFC Championship game.

However, the turnover seems to be down the depth chart trade offs between experience and potential.

That is the way to continually improve from within.
