The average number of total snaps a game is approx 70. So for 4 spots, that gives 280 snaps to divvy up.
Using the depth chart and my perception of talent of this group, and a desire to keep Long on this team, here's my target snap count:
Cox 53 (76%) Graham 45 (64%) Barnett 42 (60%) Jackson 42 (60%) Jernigan 30 (43%) Long 27 (39%) Curry 26 (37%) Hester 15 (21%)
He played as much as he did the last two years because of injuries to others. Offering him a target of almost 40% of the snaps is appropriate and fair IMO. If injuries happen again, then he can step it up and play more and we're in good hands.
Sweat, Miller and Ridgeway are my healthy scratches on game days.
The starters Graham and Barnett get 65% of snaps and the back ups Long and Curry get 35%. But I warn all four that they have to earn their snaps with both Miller and Sweat being able to replace Long and/or Curry if they do well enough.
Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.
