The Eagles have released RB Derrick Locke, WR Terrence Turner, DT Marlon Favorite, & LB Brandon Peguese

RB Derrick Locke is someone I wanted for us in the role of KR/PR with his speed.

Joselio Hanson, a nickel CB, is also on the trade block, that was probably something we knew before:

Locke very well could be I dont think we will even look at him due to the timing factor, regular season is around the corner and we are loaded at the RB and kick returnrer slot. Maybe we look at him for the practice squad but i doubt it. I did like Marlon Favorite from last year as well but another one i highly doubt we will bring back.

I think the Colts are done signing players, they're getting into cutting mode now...

Players not meat.

I wouldn't be so sure. If they think a player fits our scheme in a position of need and can provide good depth that we badly need, they might do it. For example, our safety position could sure use a quality body for depth. Just saying. We are playing with fire with Bethea, Bullitt and Lefeged probably the most likely safeties to make the roster. One injury to Bethea or Bullitt and we are back to Francisco again. :(

i agree our dbs have to stop a lot of long runs and they could get hurt by the big rbs.

I think we'll be fine with Lefeged, and I would also go with David Caldwell before I would even think about bringing back Francisco.

We're already good at running back. Addai, Brown, James, Carter, and perhaps Evans.

That's a good stable to choose from but only 3 will be pick, the writing is on the wall, its gonna be Addai, Carter, Brown.

James, Spann?, and Evans are gonna be cut or practice squad.

Vaughn is still here too, I thinks he's more of a run stopper though. Hasn't got very much play time though.

Nah we won't look at him. We have so many RBs competing for jobs as it is. They only way I foresee us signing anyone else is if someone like Gonzo gets injured and we have to find a replacement. At this point in time we just need to go with the players we have.

not to mention we have one less roster spot, because i assume we'll go into the season with 3 qb's. gonna be some tough cuts

I thought I read somewhere that one of the rule changes this year was that teams could carry a 3rd QB without it counting against the 53-man roster. That may have been balderdash, though.

i heard something to that effect as well, but i seem to remember the 3rd qb not counting against the gameday actives

They actually upped the game day roster size to 46 and did away with the 3rd QB rule. So you can now put in your 3rd QB and still be allowed to sub in your 1 or 2 later.

53 man roster stands, as far as I know.

    • First off.. Thanks Superman for writing this up on Young   I would be very happy with either Young or Stroud as our pick     In regards to Richardson   If teams trade up and both Young and Stroud are gone (I think its a small chance)   But.... If that happens, I would consider taking Richardson over Levis   at 4   I really dont want to give up 2 firsts and 2 2nds and a player for a move up to 1            
    • Yes.  I could be negative and see only how every Qb we take could bust...and with the questions each has any one of them could be a bust, but I look at this pretty optimistically.  We need a QB, and I think this draft presents a lot of possibilities and choices that could work out for the best.  Trade up for the elite guy and he works out.  Stand Pat for the second best guy and he works out.  Trade back and pick up a traitsy player who needs a year to develop in a year where we have no chance of going to the SB anyway.   There are about 5 or 6 QBs that could all work for us depending upon if the investment is correct.      As a fan, I can't see me criticizing any of the picks or moves Ballard makes this draft when it comes to QBs.  But, as a fan, I reserve the right to later say...."He should have known better" if it doesn't work out.  He's getting paid to know better.
    • This definitely makes sense. People seem fixated on Chicago taking Anderson or Carter. Poles has said his main objective has and will be to help Fields by surrounding him with talent. That starts up front. Even if they trade down in the top 4, I feel they will trade down again to stock picks. Anderson and Carter are nice players but I don't see Poles taking a risk on one player. He is more of the obtain more picks and increase chances of upgrading talent guy.
    • I don't accept your description that its trolling.  Trolling is intentionally saying something simply to stir the pot...to muck up the works.   If this got to a national level.... to a general football loving base, sports loving base, or general population, you don't know that the responses would be limited to just Colts fans.  You may have thousands of people who would see the Jeff hire as simply a rich white billionaire hiring is buddy over more qualified candidates.....maybe even minorities.....and would sign the petition to voice their concerns over such .    Which would be a concern to them beyond caring how many Ws and Ls Jeff might cause.     If Jeff is hired, there will be questions from general football fans, sports fans, or the population asking "What does this hire say about the NFL?"   I'd wager that the possibility of Irsay "hiring his buddy over other candidates" already has grated on enough people to contribute to their existing opinion about whether or not Jeff should be hired.    And this is the type of emotion the media morphs into and taps into.  Effectively, the media trolls the population trying to get them all triggered up.   Besides.  Petitions by their nature are one sided.  10,000 signatures may sound like a lot, but it may be less than the 11,000 votes that would support Jeff for HC if an actual poll was the medium used for fan expression.  Or less than the 150,000 opinions who are comfortable leaving it up to the owner to hire the HC he wants for the reasons he wants.  These opinions would never be known, because if you are comfortable leaving it up to the owner, you are the type of person who is not going to sign a petition in the first place.  Petitions are a form of activism, and most people aren't activists.  And most activists could care less if their opinion is in the minority, they just want their opinion to prevail.
    • If Ballard believed in Br that much he would have drafted him in R2at 53.  He was considered by some to be 1st R talent.  BR slid from where he was projected.  He was there and CB took him, but this certainly wasn’t the strategy .  We will wait until a projected 1st or 2nd rounder whom I really like slips to 77.
