Colts waive/injured RB Vick Ballard (Mega Merge)

Per @RapSheet, the #Colts waived-injured running back Vick Ballard. Guess he wasn't getting healthy fast enough. Too bad.

Per @RapSheet, the #Colts waived-injured running back Vick Ballard. Guess he wasn't getting healthy fast enough. Too bad.

I do feel bad for Vick from the perspective of he worked hard to be a valuable contributor to this club. Sorry man. However, I'm glad that Grigs isn't too emotionally attached to players either. No Bob Sanders syndrome. If health is a lingering problem, cut them loose, & don't get bogged down with potential, expectations, & brief flashes of brilliance. 


When it's time to move on, just do it. It had to be done even I know that.

With Vick Ballard waived, here's a running back to keep in mind: Ahmad Bradshaw. He's healthy acc to source and Colts have some interest

Well, they have this up at RotoWorld:


'The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts have "some interest" in free agent Ahmad Bradshaw.

Bradshaw's one-game suspension is up, and he's reportedly 100 percent healthy after breaking his leg last November. The Colts have wildly little depth behind aging starter Frank Gore, and Bradshaw was highly effective before going down last season. A reunion would make a lot of sense.'
Bradshaw is probably good for only 8 games...but might be worth having in the rotation.

I would have no problem picking up Bradshaw, that man is the appitamy of what a running back should be.


He's the "epitome" too. :P


On a non-spelling related note, I'm with you on that one.  Bradshaw is a great fit in the Colts' offense.  He is a weapon catching the ball out of the backfield and he runs hard north/south.

Can he go to the practice squad? 


Nvm, this was a dumb question. 


I'm not sure whether he's PS eligible. Those rules are pretty complicated anymore.


But we couldn't put him on our PS from IR or waive-injure status regardless. If he's PS eligible, he wouldn't be able to sign with our PS until six weeks after the length of the injury settlement. 


I'm really surprised he's not a Cardinal. I guess with Ellington inactive for a bit, they don't have the roster space either.

    • Rivers has never been a Hall of Famer for me.   I think he’s in the Hall of the very, very good.  I suspect he will eventually get in the Hall.  He’s been very good for a long time and has put up lots of numbers.  So odds are the Chargers franchise will make a big push for him.   I won’t complain.   But if I had a vote, I doubt he’d get it.   Just my two cents....
    • I said I loved the trade back then too. Here's the proof. My posts are all over the thread. I'm not negative for the heck of it. Only when this team deserves it. 
    • Right.   Sure.    That’s what you say...  today.    Let’s see what happens a few years from now.   I’ll wait.    Oh, by the way, finding a franchise level quarterback is the hardest thing to do in all of sports.    So it’s possible we won’t replace Luck as easily as some here would like.   Or haven’t you seen all those trade for Sam Darnold threads?   (Yes, I know you’ve got at least one of them....)  
    • I know I was like wth why did homey close like dang. Rick just sucks that not bbq and the new place near 74 that gas grill I could tell but the smell
    • Buckner is literally safer than anyone we could of gotten at 13. That was a great trade and an extremely safe pick. Buckner was an all-pro before we traded for him and the chances he will after are very high. We also traded for him when he was 25 years old. I loved the trade. Terrible example.   If I say fire Ballard, the last reason will be because of the Buckner trade, it will be because of the inability to draft a decent WR or EDGE rusher, or the inability to replace Luck and get us a franchise QB.
