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.

    • Wentz will be fine and deliver above average QB play. Its whether he can deliver some elite play that we will need if we get to the post season. 
    • Ertz would be nice as would Julio.....just don't think they are likely to happen anymore and Julio was never going to happen as that is just the press stirring the pot.  We already brought and aging TY back on a 1-Year deal that will likely stunt the growth of the young guys they drafted for Veteran leadership in the WR Room. We shall see, stranger things have happened.....like Paye dropping to us at 21!!!!!!
    • I think the National Media is scared, scared to admit that Philly just ran a Franchise QB out of town all while firing the head coach that "supposedly" didn't even speak with his QB for the majority of the season! Seems like the disconnect starts at the top to me.....but this article is straight hot garbage!  Funny thing is Donovan McNabb was a fairly successful QB in Philly and they booed him starting on draft day thru the end of his career! LOL   "Though head coach Frank Reich is confident he and staff can get Wentz back to form, USA TODAY’s Mike Jones is less bullish on the situation for the Colts. In ranking every team’s quarterbacks by tiers, Wentz found himself in the bottom tier listed as “shaky” along with some other questionable quarterbacks.   Indianapolis Colts Carson Wentz’s 2020 season got off to a bad start behind an injury-plagued line, and he never recovered. Overwhelmed both by defenses and the pressure of Jalen Hurts’ presence, Wentz looked like a shell of himself. Can former Philadelphia offensive coordinator Frank Reich fix Wentz by inserting him into a stronger squad with a more reliable line than the Eagles had to offer?   Among the other teams also listed in the “shaky” tier included the New Orleans Saints (Taysom Hill, Jameis Winston), New York Giants (Daniel Jones), Denver Broncos (Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater), Washington Football Team (Ryan Fitzptrick) and a potentially Deshaun Watson-less Houston Texans (Davis Mills, Tyrod Taylor)."   Career Stats including 9 comebacks and 10 game winning drives and there are only 13 starting QB's in the NFL with higher QBR's. These stats are not even comparable to the pedestrian types of numbers these other QB's have put up. I mean seriously.....USA Today got their clickbait that they wanted but this is pure filth. Sorry not sorry.   Pct          Yds          TD          Int          Sck          QBR 63.2       16,811      113        50          179          89.2   2020-21 Season 57.4        2,620        16         15            50           72.8   2019-20 Season 63.9        4,039        27           7            37           93.1   2018-19 Season 69.6        3,074        21           7            31           102.2   2017-18 Season 60.2        3,296        33           7            28            101.9   2016-17 Season 62.4        3,782        16          14            33            79.3   Every QB, no matter how good they are have had at least one year (not counting their rookie year) that was considered a "down" year and some have had several of those years - go look them up on profootballreference.com if you like, but all of the greats had down years in their career! It is hard to be consistently great year in and year out. Last year was a blip and the Eagles WILL regret giving up on Carson Wentz before he's even realized his full potential!   Carson Wentz WILL BE a stud here in Indy and will pass for +/- 4k a year and +/- 30 TD's a year for the foreseeable future and Chris Ballard will look like a genius for the 3rd and 1st or 2nd round picks given up while the Eagles will fade back into last in the NFC East for the foreseeable future. We have tightends that can attack all three layers of the defense now, we have wide receivers that can attack all three layers of the defense, a three headed monster of a running game, one of the best o-lines in the game and three running backs that can absolutely catch and run out of the backfield as well.  Plus the added benefit of backyard ball when a play breaks down - reminiscent of the days when Andrew Luck would create with his legs and connect on a deep pass to TY or Moncreif when the defense broke down.....   Come on folks, jump onto the positivity train now before all the seats are taken!
