Updated football roster released

The most notable item here is that Josh Chichester has been switched from wide receiver to tight end. I'm not about second-guessing Charlie Strong in any area of life (especially anything having to do with fitness), but I'm not entirely sold on this move.

Chichester was coming into his own at receiver, and the weakest aspect of his game has always been blocking. You also have to take into account that Cameron Graham was one of the few pleasant surprises on offense a year ago, and Nate Nord - who I still think can be very good - is finally healthy.

I'm interested to see how this plays out.

More thoughts:

--Speaking of tight ends...ROCK KEYS IS STILL ON THE ROSTER. First thing I checked.

--Senorise Perry, who played running back in high school, is listed as a wide receiver.

--Titus Teague is still the only man holding down the vaunted No. 18. Get ready for some solid Sec. 215 representation, my man.

--Jacques Caldwell is officially still (or again) a wide receiver.

--Dominique Brown is on the roster (#10) and listed as a quarterback.

--Nobody's wearing No. 4, can't we just give it to Fletcher, Nance or Donovan? Come on.

Here's the whole roster:
