Specialists

The starters aren't going to play very long Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys. But this will be the last chance for a few "on the fence" players to make the team. And they'll do so on special teams.

Make a few plays, and they could swing momentum in their favor. Aundrae Allison, who is expected to get some punt returns, could seal his spot as a returner. Safety Greg Blue needs to assert himself as a special teams ace like linebackers Vinny Ciurciu and Heath Farwell.

Other players to watch:

* DT Fred Evans -- He had a forced fumble in Seattle, but he needs another strong performance to secure a spot.

* WR Martin Nance -- He had a strong training camp, but he has just one catch for eight yards in the previous three preseason games.

* RB Mewelde Moore -- He had a strong training camp. But he also has been quiet in the preseason games.

* QB Brooks Bollinger -- He needs to rebound after a miserable performance in Seattle.

Any chance for a Mewelde Moore for Chris Chambers trade?

how about using D. Edwards as a returner? i think he has all the tools and needs to stay on the roster.

If not Chambers, what about Michael Clayton? Rototimes stated that they are open to a trade for him.
