Interesting that we have announced cutting Quarles, and then no one else for a while now....... wonder what we are waiting to see from other teams, if anything.....

 

If by "we" you mean the Colts, they did not make the announcement.  He tweeted it out himself.

Red Bryant, defensive end got cut by the Bills, real good against the run and great player for Seattle for a number of years. I know he hasn't played in a 3-4 but it wouldn't hurt to sign him for cheap. 31 years old still should have a couple good years left. he could give us some depth with Jones being out for the season

John Crockett was released by the Packers. I know the last thing we need is another running back, but several people were high on him coming out of college.

I really liked him, of course he has his ups and downs, was hoping Grigs would sign him as a UDFA

As was Jared Abbrederis. Another name I saw a lot of around here. Looks like they're hoping he makes it to their practice squad. Remember everyone, every team has to make these cuts and the other fan bases are going through very similar situations so be sure to take a breath and relax a little, haha.

Yes his name was floated around a lot as well. I also couldn't agree with the later part of your post enough.

No reason at all to believe that is true.

What did he to prove to us while he was here? What did he really show us? He played his position at a very avg level majority of the time. He had 3 years to show his worth and that he's getting better. He didn't do that, so he's gone. You're only gonna get so long. And this year he was getting outplayed and outshined by other players at his position on the roster so he didn't make the cut. Best of luck to him elsewhere though.

I think we should look at Red Bryant. We need a pure run stuffer. The question is if he can still play like he did with Seattle a couple years ago. Then I really hope we pick up Louis Nix. He had an injury, but I still don't get why Houston gave up on a guy with his talent. He was considered a top 10-20 pick for a while. And its not like he's played and sucked. It wouldn't hurt to pick him up. Especially where he went to ND. As for Gerrod Holliman. If somebody could teach that kid how to tackle he could be a superstar. This may sound crazy but he had the best ball skills in this years draft class among safeties.

That he was one of the very few guys on the roster that could play in a 2 gap defense. And I think him being cut, along with hughes, and considering the guys still on the roster...I don't think they're going to be doing much, if any, 2 gapping going forward.

    • IDK. Doubt he would have drafted as many if he had hit on one lol. His track record is pretty poor. And Lewis was a tweener, so I kind of remove him from the pure Edge picks.   And he actually said the 3T was the most important part of our D, yet he waited a good while to address.   I'm a big Tomlin fan btw.
    • You're really trying to make this something it isn't, and I won't let you put words in my mouth or take this off topic.   Facts are In terms of pure trait measurements (you can use RAS for this), the profile of an Edge is clearly tilted toward speed, burst, and agility when compared to OL or OTs. I don't think this fact is really debatable. Given the above is true, an equal leg injury to both an OL and OT, is logically more of an impact to the position that relies most on those traits listed above.   It's not bias. Simple logical opinion based on some pretty clear RAS indicators. If my usage of term "athletic" is what triggered you, you can simply remove athletic and replace it with faster/quicker/more-explosive.
    • Well why you think Tomlin & Co draft a LB every year no matter what is going on? Most of the time at the top of the draft. I mean Ballard doing the same thing with 4-3 EDGE isnt much different. That's really how important it is to that scheme. 
    • Who cares what anybody says or writes?  All that matters is what actually happens on the field 17 (and hopefully more) times this fall and winter.   Opinions have always been like a******s - in that everybody has one.  But one thing that’s different nowadays is that most people can publish them, and many do.  And, for some reason, a lot of people get worked up about opinions they don’t like.   Hopefully Carson will shut all his critics up.  But it’s up to him, his coaches, and his teammates to do that.
    • If you're going to Blitz, you gotta have people that can either cover, or tackle on the spot.
