Lots of movement yet to take place. But the two O-linemen noted above, especially Clark, shouldn't get too comfortable.

Cutting Badgley. I do think he was a heck of a kicker.

 

I know you're joking, but you can't replace the :goat:

The Trading of a TE

I was surprised about Daniels getting traded too...especially since Travis is banged up. But the end result of that trade is what surprised me: it caused Fountain to be cut, and I thought he'd made the team with his performance Thurs. night.

Actually, I know it’s funny but I’m not joking.

 

We are a young team and not competing for anything until 2020 (according to so many on the Mack was traded to Chicago thread).

 

Vinny’s not going to be a part of that. It’s likely this year is his last. Might as well find the next Colts kicker and I thought Badgly was a great candidate.

Gotta be Simon.  Its great to want to get the younger kids to play but we also have to win some games.  Should have cut him in the spring like everyone expected.

 

Fountain will go to the PS, so all is well there.

 

The Oline moves are not surprising.

So you think we should let AV go set the all time scoring record for some other team???  :headspin:That’s madness.

If you believe Daniels was good, then this just shows how badly we need WRs.

I’m slightly surprised that we let Simon go, as well as Fountain but I’m guessing they are gambling that Fountain gets to the PS with other teams vets getting dropped. I’m probably most shocked that we kept Hunt over all the other DE/DL we let go. I’d say he is the low guy on the drop pole. I’d hate to be one of those fringe guys right now because they may change teams 3-4 times before the season is over.

What does a kicker’s scoring record really mean to a team? In the grand scheme of things, not much.

 

Having a good kicker for years to come is more important than allowing AV to set a record. Especially when you know he’s going to retire sooner rather than later.

I think the post above is right Fountain goes to the ps and that happens on Sunday correct ? Then on Monday we can pick up guys that were cut or is this backwards ?

Badgley is not a good kicker. As a Canes fan, I got to watch him first hand 

It very well may be. But by all accounts, he was very good in the preseason.

You don't cut AV.

McCain was put on IR.  Simon is easily the biggest surprise of the cuts.  Out of no where.  Especially when he was one of the only starters that was doing positive things and getting noticed on the D-line.

Fountain may not make waivers...i hope he does...but probably won't. 

Ross Travis being put on IR, and dealing Daniels to Seattle, puts Swoope as 3rd TE.  (I thought he was looking better than most people on here was saying)

I am SOOO glad Vuj got let go.

Walker looked really good in preseason.  top 10 back-ups i thought.  So i'd be surprised if he make waivers again this year.

Clark saved his job in the game vrs the Bengals.  (i wish he hadn't...lol)

Clark made only one really bad play this preseason, or more than one?   I expect that from a back up T.

Simon for sure. You cant preach competition and culture and then cut the hardest working and most productive guy. The locker room will see through your gospel eventually.

I thought we would trade a TE but not for a WR.  I thought it would be for a RT.  I think Howard's failure and the injuries have saved Clark.   Tomorrow is another day.

The kicker they let go isn't as good as vinny right now.   No reason to change.   If the kid was amazing,   maybe

Well I was watching a certain player on the Carmel Freshman Football team earlier when they was playing Center Grove (my boys' school). He had a couple touchbacks from kickoffs. Maybe this kid will get to play one day in the NFL with his dad.

If the Kicker isn’t worthy of being the Colts kicker of the future, that’s fine, if that’s the case.

 

We have to look at the future of this position. No one expects AV to play for another few years; it’s likely this is his final year. At that point, we will have to find his replacement.

 

My take is that Badgley has had a great preseason, (including all practice sessions where it’s been reported he was solid). I would hate to give up on a good kicker for one more year of AV. And of course, I like AV. I have nothing against him.

 

Overall, it’s not a big deal.

How many kicks does AV make?

 

All of them!

I'm surprised and not happy that we released Simon. Even if Ballard thought Simon wasn't going to fit the defensive scheme or last the entire 16 games, he could've still let him play a few games and trade him. He was clearly effective in this scheme and could be productive somewhere else, our defense needs playmakers in the worst of ways.

 

 

All I can do is shake my head and hope Ballard knows what he is doing.

So you have seen several practices in training camp to make that assertion, right?

He can play inside.  It’s not always the best 53.  It’s the best 53 that builds a roster.

Reports where he tried to trade him and could find no takers and his contract would have become guaranteed tomorrow.

At first I was kinda surprised that we cut Simon, but it makes sense now. Luke Dunlevy, who many here probably aren't familiar with but is plenty knowledgeable, made some sense of it:
