Is There A Free Agent At Og Coming....


Recommended Posts

With the cut of Thomas and the cap savings of 3.25 million could we be seeing a free agent signing, sadly we could have signed Mathis for this money but on to plan B

 

Who would like the team to sign if they choose to?

At this point, only options out there aren't going to be any better than what we have or they are two old/injured/otherwise washed up.  

 

Only thing I can't rule out is a trade, anything else isn't gonna be an upgrade

Makes you wonder if Denzelle Good can play left guard??

 

Mewhort back to LG, and Good to RT?

I heard others praise Good in the first preseason game. Not certain how he's done since.

Plus, I'm sure it wasn't against #1s.

And/or move Harrison to guard and get a good backup for Center. 

Arkin took snaps at Center vs. Rams.  He looks like the 9th lineman today.  Moving Harrison to LG is a move I'd love to try as well, and doesn't preclude him from still being the back up Center.

There are free agent tackles out there. Jake Long and Anthony Collins. No one at guard jumps out at me.

If healthy I'd have no problem seeing if Jake Long could play LG, I think he has the nasty streak needed for it and is mobile enough. I don't know how he would handle all the different types of blitzes and stunts but I think he is smart enough and technically sound enough it just might work.....Otherwise Lance Louis it is

I'm fine with our guards, personally. They aren't the best, but we have options. Harrison and Reitz will be the primary backups, I believe, and both of them offer the position flexibility that the staff wants. But we only have one real backup at tackle, Reitz. The rest are totally unproven, and IMO, not ready. I guess Herremans could play RT if needed.

Grigs and company will be watching the cuts between Tuesday and Saturday for released Guards. They will consult their scouting logs and determine if they might make our 53 man roster and possibly make a play to get them on board.  OTOH, there just may not be any either.

 

I just re watched the series where we started about our own 5 yard line.  We ran the ball 3 times, for +1, -3, then -2.5 to put us on our 6 inch line (which led to the Punt to the 47, return to our 44, then the Foles to Givens 44 yard TD)

 

Aaron Donald blew up (in order) Lance Louis for tackle #1, Anthony Castonzo for tackle #2, and Todd Herremans for tackle #3.  They shifted Donald around and he beat every one of these guys in succession; mano a mano. Sometimes you have to give the other guy credit. He gets paid too (well he will after his rookie contract...)

Aaron Donald is one of the best DL in the league. It would be nice to see us win some of those one-on-ones against him, but that's easier said than done. We we play the Dolphins, Bucs and Texans, we'll face similar game wrecking DL. They'll have to scheme something to keep those guys from dominating up front.

If we could get him for that we should do that a million times out of ten. But I doubt we can.

Well...a wise man always said, everyon has a selling point.  Question is, just how high of a price.  If we got him, we slide him in at RT, Mewhort back to guard.  Herremans at the other guard slot.

This is  crazy thought.  La'el Collins. Would you trade say....Whalen and a 7th for him? 

 

I sure would. but I highly doubt the Cowboys will take that.  They aren't really desperate for a WR that will probably get cut or they could claim off the waivers.

A man can dream...  but realistically I don't think the cowboys will trade Collins for anything lower than a 4th, he has too much upside although I like where you are coming with seeking out the best OL in the game and plucking someone from them.

There are pipe dreams and then there is this.  NO WAY Dallas moves Collins.  They got their RT of the future for a crazy cheap price.  What is their incentive to trade him to Indy?

You need to watch it again.

 

He beat Lance Louis but as you say it still gained postive yards.  Then he blew up Harrison (not AC) and then he blew up Herremans.

I agree with the bolded.

 

Collins was a sure-fire first rounder, until. Now they got him at 10% of the cost, and without using a pick. Why, in the name of everything wonderful, would they trade him for a 7th rounder and a waiver wire WR?

Prolly not honestly. It just makes no sense that we didn't sign Evan Mathis. I mean its just absolutely bewildering when you consider the shape our line has been in. If it were up to me I would have cut Thomas weeks ago, Harrison today and signed Evan Mathis and Brian De La Puente. DLP could have backed up Holmes if Holmes is playing well or started for him if he wasn't. DLP was solid last year with the bears. But as for the FA options. I don't really know who's available off the top of my head. Is Rob Sims out there? But I don't think he was too great last year anyways. I'd agree with Gavin. Sign Jake Long if he healthy and stick him at LG.

I believe that when there was a possibility that Thomas would come back, the Colts were fairly satisfied with what they had at O-line.  Now the possibility of trying to find another lineman is increased.  They just need to see an obvious upgrade with the cuts.

Well I saw it in slo-mo HD at home, and here with my laptop I went to see it again here-

Then I took snaps.

Red arrow is Donald. Yellow Arrow is Castonzo, Green Arrow is Brockers, Pink Arrow is Harrison (Louis gets the clear Arrow as he whiffed on the play)  Here we go-

I stand by my original statement. Donald beat AC, while Brockers destroyed Harrison on the same play.

I think Harrison would make a good guard.

His problem comes with making the assignments on the O-line and the mental aspect of it... Playing at Guard could help to cover up those deficiencies.

    • I would not be surprised if we draft his latest project at CB on the 3rd day of the draft.....  Shemar Jean-Charles   "2020: First-team All-American by Walter Camp Football Foundation (first FBS first-team All-American in school history) ...

    • I sat in endzone couple times.  It's nice when the offense is coming toward you inside the RedZone....but can't say I liked it when the offense is moving away from you on opposite side of field over 100 yards away.   But I did see Andre Rison's TD vs dolphins in Miami. We were in endzone and colts were driving toward us and rison scored a TD that was voted Top 100 TD's ever, I think. And we saw it in  person not too far away from our seats.   I think I seen another top 100 td, but can't remember for sure, lol. I think it was a Ricky Williams run?  Such a long time ago 
    • Pundits as far as my recollection has always referred to the media folks.....wow, a lot of folks in an uproar over nothing!   And I have a job as well......   Something more meaningful to complain about? I was poking fun. But since you brought it up......how about this new Equality Act? What is your stance on biologically born men transitioning to women (sorta) and competing in women's sports programs? Is that meaningful enough for you? Or how about the new Stimulus Bill that gives roughly 9% of it's money (out of 1.9 Trillion) to actual COVID related concerns? Not counting Federal Employees being EXTRA EXTRA stimulated if they have the 'unfortunate circumstance' of having to stay at home with their children whilst the rest of American "civilian" families lose jobs, get furloughed, laid off, quit/fired or whatever form of no longer working you want to call it.....Is that meaningful enough? Never mind......wrong forum....   By the way, I clearly said "Pundits" in both the title and the body of the OP and asked if anyone has heard or seen some other funny ones????? Media - it was clearly stated in the Title and in the body of the OP......
    • Yup. This was a good exercise to get folks thinking. I think the best time to do a board mock is a few weeks before the draft, after a lot of the FA dominos has tumbled. I almost did a flash mock last year the week before draft. Short clock, and perhaps scheduled windows
