I’m basically in agreement here... but either way most teams (all?) have their QB2 by early September. So if we waive him with the intention of putting him on our PS, another team wanting Eason would want to have three QBs on their 53 and not many want that. Plus, I suspect we’d offer Eason a big bump in pay to incentivize him to stay with the Colts and not go elsewhere, just as we did with Kelly.
It’s way too early to know anything, I’m just saying there are things that can work to help us keep Eason around the roster deadline. It’s not quite as black and white as some are making it out to be.
You are correct. I read an article that said the Colts could "protect " four players . They went on to say that Eason was 100% sure to be designated as one of those. I assumed that this meant they didn't have to clear waivers. I just did find an article explaining it . As you say he can be signed by another team after he is waived. Furthermore , it appears that teams can sign these players on Mondays and Tuesdays. IMO , this new rule is pretty useless . It certainly does not provide what I inferred.
I agree, but I think this entire group just needs to stay healthy. If TY, Parris and Daurice Fountain are all healthy, Pascal keeps improving, and Pittman is as advertised, this is going to be a great group.
No one has forgotten about him but he needs some more work. Granted that may take time and guys like Reggie Wayne didn’t explode their first couple years in the league but we need him to step up big time this year
