Training Camp! July 27....90 Players....One Goal.....Make it to 53!


Recommended Posts

Well, instead of listing the guys I would cut, I'll just post who I'm guessing our final roster will be:  

 

Offense:

 

QB: Andrew Luck, Matt Hasselbeck

RB: Ahmad Bradshaw, Vick Ballard, Donald Brown, Kerwynn Williams

WR: Reginald Wayne, Darrius Heyward-Bey, TY Hilton, Griff Whalen, Nathan Palmer

TE: Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener, Justice Cunningham

OT: Anthony Castonzo, Gosder Cherilus, Jeff Linkenbach, Emmet Cleary

OG: Donald Thomas, Mike Mcglynn, Hugh Thornton, Justin Anderson

OC: Samson Satele, Khaled Holmes 

 

Total: 24

 

Defense:

 

NT: Josh Chapman, Aubrayo Franklin

DE/DT: Rickey Jean-Francois, Cory Redding, Drake Nevis, Fili Moala, Montori Hughes

OLB: Robert Mathis, Bjoern Werner, Erik Walden, Lawrence Sidbury

ILB: Jerrell Freeman, Kavell Conner, Kelvin Sheppard, Pat Angerer, CO Prime

CB: Vontae Davis, Greg Toler, Darius Butler, Cassius Vaughn, Josh Gordy

FS: Antoine Bethea,  Sergio Brown, John Boyett

SS: Laron Landry, Joe Lefeged 

 

Total: 26

 

Kicker: Adam Vinatieri

Punter: Pat McAfee

LS: Matt Overton

 

Overall Total: 53

 

(Possible I miscounted)

Hard for me no having a 3rd NT between Tevaseu and McKinney....which I would keep Tevaseau for money reasons.  I know I have heard RJF has slid to the nose, but it not the prototype.

 

I still like the list.  I am always anxious to see the CO Primes...Ceasar Rayfords....and other unknowns get a chance to put the pads on and compete!!!

I've been spending the off-season watching film on certain players of this team. Sheldon Price is looking pretty good to me. If Pagano gets ahold of him come July 27th, I think he's a steal for us

I actually like him and Swanson....I am rooting for them since I am not a fan of Vaughn and Gordy!

I actually like Gordy, but don't see him making the 53. He played alright in the rematch @ JAX. He played better than Vaughn did anyway

This is a tough call, I went through it once (with I thought a harsh critique) and came up with 37 cuts.  Here they are.

 

 

Brazill, LaVon                 Chapman, Allen

Cleary, Emmett              Gordy, Josh

Green, Marshay             Griffin, Robert

Harnish, Chandler          Heard, Kellen

Howell, Delano               Ijalana, Ben

Jones, Dominique          Kelley, Jeremy

Lefeged, Joe                  Linkenbach, Jeff

Lutrus, Scott                  Mathews, Ricardo

McGlynn, Mike              Meggett, Davin

Moore, Dan                   Palmer, Nathan

Prime, C.O.                   Rayford, Caesar

Reitz, Joe                      Rumble, Rodrick

Sambrano, Jabin          Sampson, Lanear

Saunders, Weslye        Schmeig, Rick

Simmons, Monte          Spears, Quinton

Tevaseu, Martin           Ziemba, Lee

Vinatieri, Adam            Price, Sheldon

McKinney, Brandon     Carter, Delone

Butler, Darius

 

With John Boyett on PUP to start season, then on IR, opening up a spot later for someone from the PS.  Rayford Caesar, Sheldon Price, Rodrick Rumble, Griff Whalen, Marshay Green, Jeremy Kelley, Delano Howell and Emmett Cleary would be the PS.  This can all change depending on injuries, who stands our in camp, etc.  But this would be my final roster:

 

 

Allen, Dwayne                Anderson, Justin

Angerer, Pat                   Asante, Larry

Ballard, Vick                  Bethea, Antoine

Boyett, John                  Bradshaw, Ahmad

Brown, Donald              Brown, Sergio    

Castonzo, Anthony        Chapman, Josh

Cherilus, Gosder           Conner, Kavell

Cunningham, Justice    Davis, Vontae

Fleener, Coby               Franklin, Aubrayo

Freeman, Jerrell           Guy, Lawrence  

Harvey, Mario               Hasselbeck, Matt

Havili, Stanley               Heyward-Bey, Darrius

Hickman, Justin            Hilton, T.Y.

Holmes, Khaled            Hughes, Montori  

Jean Francois, Ricky    Landry, LaRon    

Luck, Andrew               Mathis, Robert

McAfee, Pat                 McManus, Brandon  

Moala, Fili                    Nevis, Drake

Overton, Matt               Redding, Cory        

Satele, Samson           Sheppard, Kelvin

Sidbury, Lawrence      Sowell, Bradley  

Swanson, Daxton        Thomas, Donald

Thornton, Hugh           Toler, Greg

Vaughn, Cassius        Walden, Erik

Wayne, Reggie          Whalen, Griff

Williams, Kerwynn     Williams, Teddy

Did you really just cut Darius Butler?

Linkenbach > Bradley Sowell by a long shot.

Need another OG, I prefer Reitz.

We have no safeties if Boyett is going be on PUP and you cut Lefeged, Lefeged has to make the roster.

My opinion Brazill makes the team fairly easy as the 4th or 5th with Whalen

This was REALLY tough, I went with some youth at some positions, I'm not saying this is how it should go.  This is just my attempt, probably (most likely) flawed.  LOL

Yea I see what you did here I just can't get over cutting Darius Butler after the season he is coming off of and newly signed contract.

You just bamboozled me when you kept VAUGHN over Butler. Did you not watch the game @JAX? That should've sold you on Butler

Thanks you guys for pointing that out, Vaughn was the one I meant to cut.  I was switching back and forth between spreadsheet and this site and missed that one.

So, 90-19 is 71. I got it down to 71. Which is good cause that means I did the first 2 rounds of cuts after the 2 pre-season games. So here's my next round of cuts. From 71, down to 59.

 

1. Adam Vinatieri (Can't take the risk of someone grabbing the McManus kid. He sounds promising)

2. Chandler Harnish

3. Teddy Williams

4. Marshay Green

5. Joe Lefeged

6. Mario Harvey

7. Lawrence Guy

8. Ben Ijalana

9. Jeremy Kelley

10. John Boyett (Placed on IR)

11. Delano Howell

12. Joe Reitz

13. Kellen Heard

 

1st Cut: 19

2nd Cut: 13

 

Total: 32 Players

 

Players Left: 58 :thmup: I'm doing pretty good

Young kickers like McManus are around EVERY year.  Hall of Fame kickers like Adam are not.  Adam is in the last year of the deal and is coming off a season where he hit about his career average on field goals and did much better on the back half of the season including kicking from distance.  Unless he is just awful in camp and the pre-season I think it's very unlikely the Colts will release him.

Remember Brett Swenson? Shane Andrus?

 

I don't know why anyone would think we'd fall in love with a kicker and get rid of Vinatieri. Only way we get rid of Vinatieri in camp is if he simply can't kick anymore.

Sooooo I could only cut 17 on first glance and TK was able to cut 19.....I am telling you...53 is going to be rough!  

Not only that but Grigson will have an eye on other players who will bet cut from other teams and a couple of walk ons. Grigson will be putting in plenty of overtime over the next few weeks thats for sure.
