ROTB Questions of the Day:
- The more I think of it, the more I believe that despite the new emergency QB3 rule, most NFL teams, including the Cardinals, will not keep 3 QBs on the 53 man roster. The percentages of having to turn to a 3rd QB in a game are extremely low. I can’t see the Cardinals exposing a draft pick or one of their top STs players to waivers in order to keep a 3rd QB. Do you agree?
- Which of my roster choices would you change?
- How many of the 53 do you currently favor?
Hey fans, in your opinion, should MOJO make moves to sign RB Dalvin Cook (27) and trade for DE Danielle Hunter (28)?— Walter B J Mitchell (@WBJMItch) June 8, 2023
