    Wasn't making a comparison w/other teams so ya its less deep now than it was before 4 players got "indefinitely suspended". I agree that we still have a lot of great players and should be primed for another run.

    If he came in and started over a guy who had a 1,000 yard rushing year, I would consider it a shock. Although, he does seem to be extrememly talented.

    DJ Pettway's possible departure clears the way for Dee Liner to get into the mix. Pettway was going to push Pagan for Square's old spot...I thought Pettway had a shot at winning it too.

    I thought he was transforming into a LB. I remember reading some articles about him trying to lose some weight and play the LB position. I guess his departure opens the door for Ryan Anderson to step up and make a play.

    His reps at LB was because of Denzel Devall's injury.

    He stayed there though and was really coming on, but that's all a wrap now.

    I don't think it's any lesser than it was a week ago. We are still a a deep team. Those players wouldn't get lot of playing time this season except for calloway, so It's a moot point.

    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    I'm not so sure about that. Hayes would have at least been on ST again this year. Pettway was going to get meaningful PT on D, too.

    Assuming the worst happens to these guys all this does is give a few more guys reps this year. Time to hot the weight room and be ready.

    Re: Where is a crazy early depth chart?

    Don't think the dismissal of Pettway, Williams, and Hayes has any meaningful impact on the depth chart next season.

    Of those three players, Pettway was the only one receiving snaps on defense this past season, and even he was only seeing time as a situational player following an injury to a younger player (Devall). Williams didn't factor in at all, and Hayes was solely a special teams player, notwithstanding some garbage time snaps on defense. None of those three guys were likely going to be significant contributors next season, and the only one who had much of a realistic chance of doing so -- Pettway -- was publicly called out by Saban or his inconistent play near the end of the season. Not exactly the best sign of meaningful playing time being imminent.

    As I mentioned in my previous reply, I don't believe that is correct.

    Pettway was a situational pass rusher last season, and that was his only role. He could have seen snaps next season on that basis, but even so in that regard he was behind, at a minimum, Hubbard, Dickson, and Devall. He would have been competing with guys like Ryan Anderson, Jonathan Allen, and others to be the fourth guy in that situational rusher rotation.

    Now, obviously, "meaningful" playing time is a fluid concept, and individual interpretations may vary. I'm sure he would have seen some playing time next season, but barring him suddenly becoming a far more complete player, I doubt he would have averaged more than 7-10 meaningful snaps per game. Clearly you would prefer to have him around nevertheless, but that's far from a major loss.
