Colts cuts: 53 man roster (Official Thread)

Recommended Posts

Austin could be the first guy to go

Austin is gonna be the first to go. No reason for 3 C's. Just our 2 top C's are banged up unfortunately. But if they ever get healthy we don't need 3 C's

One angle, sort of critical, is that we don't have any of Grigson's 6th rounders on the roster right now. Maybe Andrew Jackson hits the PS. So we have to determine how valuable a 6th rounder is to our team.

 

Still, I'm fine with the move. I think Burley is better than Purifoy, based on preseason, but Purifoy was okay also, and can return punts. Fair move.

 

I think of all things, I trust Pagano's input on the DB's and his evaluations along with position coaches.  That's always been his wheelhouse.

Poor Champ Bailey..

Dude is quite rich, still healthy enough to play football and young enough to enjoy the rest of his life after a stellar career.  He's among the last people I would feel sorry for.  Father time is undefeated, but for him, he got out with his health and his money and his amazing career intact! Someone may actually still pick him up but even if they don't, he's leaving on a high note of life.

Sam actually had a good preseason so saying he's not good is a tad bit invalid

According to Jeff Saturday, as a pass rush, Michael Sam was not to be feared or even concerned with.  Slow first step, no power or speed move to worry about.  He said the only thing he had going for him was that he'd make you keep your fundamentals going the entire play because he has a high motor and relentless effort.  He said there's just no need for his skill set.  It was also said he could not play ANY special teams and was vying for the 9th D lineman spot with the first 8 locked down and battled it out with a guy who could play every position on the DLine and on special teams.  Face it, the guy was a specialist in College Football and it isn't translating to the NFL.  He might still make a team somewhere desperate for any pass rushers, but it doesn't sound like anything we'd have reason to consider.

Right now? No

Won't count on the roster until week 5 against the Ravens

By then Da'Rick Rogers will be gone anyway so we're good

 

I see what you did there.   ;)

Guess I don't grasp the meaning of this...

On topic I would love to take a short for Britton.

 

Sorry. I find your profile pic unsettling... Hadn't noticed it before today.

 

Completely off topic, and irrelevant.

it's about time. chalk up another horrible tread for grigson, a starting lb for nothing. will this or the richardson trade be worse over time? i really think richardson would be cut also if he didn't have a guaranteed contract. that's why cleveland got rid of him.

I didn't know Grigson was in the tyre business with all this talk of horrible treads... Maybe the tyre kicking business :P

    • Your opinion is wrong though. Like usual.   Colts had 7th best Run Defense in the league last year.   https://www.footballdb.com/stats/teamstat.html?group=D&cat=T&sort=rushypg
    • The 2021 draft is going to be such a mess with college conferences cancelling seasons. Some are moving seasons to spring then going to expect them to play again in the fall. How many will opt out of the spring session and only play fall. What about guys who red one more year removed from HS to be eligible fir the draft. Will it force guys like Trevor Lawrence to stay in school a extra year. I am not sure how a draft will even be able to ge done in 2021. A lot of players are going to be losing a lot of money if they opt out and enter the draft. 
    • LOL. Did you watch any of the games last season?   Also, Okereke is 6-1, 235 lbs, basically the same size as Patrick Willis and Luke Keuchly, except with longer arms and also runs a 4.58 40. I’d take the increased arm length and athleticism over 0.0001 centimeters in height any day. 
    • I think S depth may trump OL depth right now.  Hooker's battled injuries most of his career and the fact he wasn't extended and given some of Ballard's pressers (basically saying Hooker's play dropped off throughout the year in 2019 and he wasn't playing to his level of expectations) and the fact we drafted Blackmon in Rd 3 lead me to believe the FO/Coaching Staff is getting ready to move on from him.     Willis played well as a rookie, but I still see him as a guy who is just about at his ceiling given his limited athleticism.  Rutledge looks like a playmaker but he went undrafted for a reason and he's a rookie coming from a small school, so it'd be hard to expect him to adjust to the NFL right away, especially given this weird off season.  I like Odum more as a STer than a full-time starting safety should we have an injury to Hooker or Willis. Then Tell, while I don't blame him, opting out, IMO, was a big blow to our entire secondary as he was developing nicely at CB but has the versatility to play S if needed (I don't know any of our current corners have that ability, maybe Rhodes).     OL depth is still concerning, but it sounds like Pinter is really impressing coaches as a rookie and I think Clark is versatile enough to be a solid stop gap at G or T if needed.  Hopefully Patterson is back to full health as a backup C (sounds like Big Q or Pinter would be next in line at C if needed).  I guess, I think we're so strong with our starting OL (with Glowinski being the weak link, but not really that weak of a link) that I feel like a single replacement there would not be as devastating to one of our starting S going down right now.  Regardless, it'd be nice to have a few more guys competing across the OL.
    • It has to be odd signing FAs now, since teams aren't allowed to work them out.  I guess one would hope that these guys have been keeping themselves in shape throughout the offseason, but it'd still be nice to be able to work them out before signing them.   Safety now is, IMO, the team's biggest concern.  I think we're fine w/ Hooker and Willis as starters, though Hooker's had injury issues throughout his time in the NFL (and prior).  I like Odum, but like him more as a STer than a guy we have to rely on being a starter for an extended time if one of our top 2 go down.  Then Blackmon is still on the injured list, and I don't expect him to be full strength to the middle of the season (if not later).  The UDFA, Rutledge, was a playmaker but from a small school and went undrafted for a reason, so I'm not too sure that we should expect anything out of him in terms of being reliable if he had to play a lot of minutes.   Geathers is still a FA and I know Ballard really seemed to like him.  I'm wondering if him not being signed or brought up in discussion is a health issue (i.e., can't pass a physical), a major health concern (given his injury history), demanding too much $, or if the team has simply moved on from him.    Personally, I like the fact we're looking at Tavon Wilson, he's a former 2nd round draft pick who had his best NFL year last season, starting 13 games in Detroit and recording 98 tackles, 2 fumble recovers and 5 passes defended.
