Terence Newman had a bit of an underwhelming practice. In addition to drawing a pass interference penalty on a deep ball to Diggs (which at this point might actually be the best way to defend him), Newman allowed a few passes to be completed over him to Charles Johnson, Diggs, and Adam Thielen. It wasn’t an awful day, but Newman appears to be losing ground to a surging Trae Waynes, who added another solid practice to his resume.
Adam Thielen actually had a pretty decent overall day, drawing in a long bomb over Xavier Rhodes and reeling in several other catches, but he made this list because he also had another bad drop. At this point, it’s clear that drops are simply part of the equation with Thielen. He can be a versatile and dynamic weapon from the slot, but he’s going to drop a catchable pass every once in a while. That fact alone might be enough to keep the ever-dependable Jarius Wright starting in the slot.
