Tarell Basham claimed by New York Jets

Recommended Posts

Doesn’t surprise me one bit that somebody picked him up via waivers.  Basham is young and still has some upside.

Rule states he has to be on active roster correct?

 

how long?

 

He does go to the active roster, but there's no amount of time he has to stay on the active roster. They can waive him anytime. 

 

If a team signs a player from another team's practice squad, he has to stay on the active roster for 3 weeks.

Do you think 53 is too low a limit for a roster? Would you add the PS spaces to it?

Don't think this will come back to haunt us. Him having a child can't be the reason he wasn't around. He wasn't any good (for us I'm speaking).

Good for him, maybe a change of scenery is what he needs....

 

On a side note, Turay is probably beside himself with joy since he'd now be able to wear his idols number - 58 (Von Miller)! Countdown until it happens in 3...2...1...

Well, does this mean the draft last year was more tailored to Pagano's 3-4, and while we all thought Basham fit the 4-3 better, in reality, 3-4 teams were just as interested?? At least these actions by the Jets make it seem so. 

 

Henry Anderson, however, has been doing real well there (this was before game 4):

 He ranks tied for 10th among qualifiers in pass-rush productivity (8.2), as he's recorded nine total pressures (five hurries, two hits, two sacks) across 67 pass-rush snaps. 

 

Henry Anderson has 2.5 sacks after 4 games.

I'd keep the practice squad and active roster separate, but I'd relieve some of the restrictions for teams to keep their own young players. In this situation, it doesn't make sense that the Colts should have to waive one of their young prospects just to field a legitimate game day roster. 

 

But I do think the rosters should be bigger. I'd go 60 active, 50 on game day, with a separate 10 person practice squad. Hopefully after last night, more people understand the reason for the game day restrictions.

Its been discussed.

with the decrease in real practices , etc, and increase in injuries across the league, i think its good for the league.

increase the roster AND PS, imo.  

Better depth league-wide should equate to a better product on Sundays.

IMO you don’t even up the 53 just the GameDay Roster

Let's be honest he was a major major disappointment. 

Only snag is we have no depth behind Turay now.

Overall proves you need to find pass rusher no later than round 2. Projects don't appear to work in the game these days

No, Ballard knew he was going to change the defensive scheme and let Pagano go after a year. Knowing that, there’s no way he drafted players for Pagano unless he is a complete *. Either way it was a bad pick and it’s all on Ballard.

And he’s doing it from a 3-4 Defense....

 

Not a 4-3...

Doesn’t matter. Anderson slimmed down to play in the 4-3, I think him and hunt would’ve played well together. Henry Anderson is gonna end up being like a Justin smith type player, maybe not that good but still. Very stupid letting him go

    • It wouldn’t shock me if our receiving core was TY, Funchess, Campbell, Cain and Fountain though. Especially if someone steps up on punt returns.
    • Fountain couldn’t  even make the roster last season when we had no receivers though. Instead of saying working back into the lineup I could of said bringing him into the lineup slowly. I noticed today that a lot of players on other teams were announced as being on Pup today. Doesn’t look like Cain will be. He looks really good on videos he posts on Instagram.  This team is so high on him and think he is going to be a star. It would be shocking if they let him go before they see what he can do when fully healthy. Fountain would really have to show star potential.
    • This is where I think a lot of Colt fans could be disappointed - when was Cain ever IN the lineup?  He was obviously set up for more instant success than Fountain b/c of Clemson coaching and better competition (vis-a-vis that of N. Iowa).  However, Fountain has likely developed way more than Cain since he’s been in Indy.  And look up their workout numbers - Fountain is an incredible athlete.
    • All I read from that is that on two separate occasions he was frustrated. The first just after having a friend murdered, very understandable. the other after having a really poor game while hurt players scream at refs all the time so I don't hold that against him and he could have handled the media better but he wasn't even really that bad then.
    • The 2006 Bears finished 13-3 (best in the NFC), tied for 2nd in the NFL in points scored, were 3rd in points allowed, had a great two-headed rushing attack, and arguably the best defense/special teams in the league.  Oh, and they DESTROYED the Brees-led Saints 39-14 in the NFCCG...   How were the Bears a "weak" opponent?   Just because of Rex Grossman?  When the Ravens won a Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer, was that a "weak" team?  Were the Broncos "weak" when they won with a sub-par Manning?
