Roster move...waived center Jake Kirkpatrick.

He had no shot at making the roster anyhow. Best of luck to him.

I guess that's why the Cowboys didn't want to take him in the trade, 'cause they knew we'd end up cutting him , and they wouldn't have to give up anything (Jenkins).

Nothing against Kirkpatrick, but I like how this regime is constantly looking to upgrade the team, even if they're PS players at best.

Also, it appears to me that players with injury concerns aren't even going to be addressed when it comes to choosing a team.

I personally believe he never had a shot. Too many new bodies on the offensive line that show better potential. Love the fact that we're always looking for better talent. Better talent Better competition Better team.

Is not every team in the league doing the same thing - such as by releasing the players that we later pick up as "improvements"?

Was the Colts prior FO working to downgrade the team?

The grass is always greener, and people always think that they can do something with a prospect that another team couldn't - yet the vast majority of fringe roster moves amount to absolutely nothing. I'm saving my applause until I see how it plays out on the field.

They sure did not make as many moves or adjustments to the roster especially offensive line via free agency or trade

We have had a lot of loyalty to players past there prime or were just not good. Sanders, hayden, addai n clark to an extent, bracket plus many more. Thats why many were let go when we began cleaning house.

We pretty much tiptoed through opportunities in the past, talking about growing our own from the draft. I have to agree that this team is turning every stone in the creek, looking for improvement.

Well if the coaches tells grigson this player has no shot to make the team. No sense to keep him around waive him and bring in somebody new and see what he has to offer

    • Yea, I was going to say that too, because Tony Dungy sure as hell doesn't. He is the most non-bias nicest guy ever, and I can tell he lets Rodney push him around because of it.
    • 2 very valid points [what I bolded]. I get what you're driving at BF4. We need more takeaways, a 1,000 yrd rusher, better TE execution, & solid special teams returns week in; week out.    Look, we all revere Chewbacca & rightly so, but he can't carry us to the Promise Land alone. Not to mention, Luck's interceptions must decline dramatically too say no more than 10-12 in a given yr just to stay competitive & on our toes. Plus, we need to be weary of tradition--Winning the AFC South crown like clockwork because like it or not our rivals have gotten better & sooner or later, Houston will find their franchise QB. It's only a matter of time. The Texans are not the Browns as much as some fans like to pretend they are. Brock might be the guy along with Lamar Miller like BF4 said. I don't live in denial. It's possible that the Texans give us a run for our money.    Yes, Brock hasn't proven anything yet, but most experts never thought INDY was gonna be good in 2012 either & we exceeded expectations. So, why assume that 2016 will be a cakewalk? A dangerous proposition. 
    • I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for last yr, or at least enough to think he can beat out a CB that couldn't make any Teams final 53 by week 5, when we would, In theory,  be dropping Cromartie. If he was playing hurt last season then it makes sense.  I've seen some terrible cb play from good corners (vontae Davis included) when they have been playing hurt. Im willing to believe that if he's healed and 100% then he's better then a Josh Gordy quality cb until proven otherwise.  
    • Yes.....    I believe "probable" meant 75% chance of playing or better....   it was an eyebrow raising thing when it happened....   and with some teams,  it happened a lot.....  far more than with others....      There was a lot of gamesmanship with the system.    Of course,  gamesmanship is just a polite word for....  cheating!       ;-)  
    • I know it depends on how he plays. And I think he is going to play awfully.. but we will see.
