This shouldn’t be viewed as a negative situation though, as younger receivers like  Cobi Hamilton and Roy Roundtree will get more reps in practice, and thus, more opportunities to showcase their abilities, and give the coaches a better idea of how they’ll project as NFL players, and whether or not they are worthy of a spot on the 53-man roster.

Hamilton has been one of the pleasent surprises through five practices, and the former sixth-rounder out of Arkansas has plenty of experience playing against NFL-caliber defensive backs. He’s quickly gone from a fringe player, to a legitimate threat to earn playing time ahead of Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones.

As they often say in the NFL, “next man up”.
