NFC West teams have fine-tuned their rosters over the last couple of days.

  • The 49ers added kicker Alex Romero.
  • The Rams subtracted undrafted free agent receiver Quentin Chaney, who failed a physical examination.
  • The Cardinals added guard Carlton Medder.
  • The Seahawks released long-snapper Tyler Schmitt and cornerback DeMichael Dizer.

I've updated the 26-column NFC West rosters and made them available for download. Starting lineups remain in flux. I have also included the two bonus sheets with information you'll find helpful in predicting which undrafted free agents stick on rosters. These sheets are updated to reflect Chaney's absence.

Schmitt's release from the Seahawks increased to 10 the number of 2008 NFL draft choices without roster spots, by my count. The Seahawks drafted Schmitt in the sixth round, 189th overall, before a serious back injury derailed him.

Note: Unsigned draft choices do not count against the 80-man offseason roster limit. The Seahawks had nine players practicing on a tryout basis. That explains why they were able to comfortably carry only 78 players.

The Rams have announced the signings of 15 undrafted free agents:

  • Ekenemchukwu Asiodu, LB, Central Oklahoma State
  • Dominic Douglas, LB, Mississippi State
  • Jerome Johnson, FB, Nevada-Reno
  • Cordelius Parks, CB, Northeastern
  • Mark Rubin, SS, Penn State
I have not seen these players play. Some of you surely have seen them. Impressions?
