Safeties/Special Teams

Who Stays:

Barry Church, S
Ahmad Dixon, S
Jeff Heath, S
J.J. Wilcox, S
Jemea Thomas, S

L.P. Ladouceur, LS
Dan Bailey, K
Chris Jones, P

Who Goes:

Keith Smith, S
Ryan Smith, S


The unexpected suspension of Jakar Hamilton for the first four games of the season opens the door for newly acquired safety/cornerback Jemea Thomas. And I believe Heath’s experience trumps either of the Smith candidates. Although either could land on the newly expanded practice squad.
