The wide receiving corps was a group that was going to lead to some difficult decisions for Doug Marrone and his coaching staff come roster cut time. With the deadline to reduce the roster to 53 coming at 6 pm Saturday, here’s where Marrone stands concerning his receivers that are likely to stick.
“Right now I feel very comfortable with five or six of those players right now,” he said. “I think you’re going to look at the game (Thursday night), but there’s a body of work for people. It’s been tough for them with Kevin (Kolb) being hurt and then Jeff (Tuel) being in there and EJ (Manuel) being in there and then bringing in two other guys.
“My point on that is I weigh a little bit more on what they’ve done in the past than just (one game) evaluating them. I feel good about that position and if we put the right guy out there we can make some good things happen.”
Marcus Easley probably helped himself the most on Thursday with a long 79-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, the only touchdown against the Lions.
