Colts claim Foreman off waivers

Recommended Posts

Depth with Ware on PUP.  Foreman coming off torn Achilles.

I actually like Foreman quite a bit.

 

However, I'm starting to wonder if Ballard isn't quite comfortable enough with our top 3 RB's. We usually carry 3. Will Wilkins stick?

Ware is taking a injury settlement and if he plays again this year it will be with a different team.

Me too. I wanted him out of college. Injuries have set him back but if he is back at 100% I think he could be a stud.... But he has to prove it to make the 53.

This really is interesting. In the update from camp today he said Williams had like 3 TD.

Can totally see why Ballard picked him up.  Still very young and was a stud in College at least.

Also think Reich got on the table for Foreman.  He's built like Blount and Blount did well under Reich.

Me too.  I really liked him in college.  I read where he was waived because of work ethic.  If true something definitely went wrong in Houston.  Hopefully he comes in with something to prove.  Great move by Ballard.

The Texans placed RB D’Onta Foreman on waivers. They weren’t happy with his work habits. RBs on the roster are veterans Josh Ferguson, Buddy Howell and Taiwan Jones and undrafted rookies Damarea Crockett and Karan Higdon Jr.

I don't like the bolded of course but I'm sure he's betting on our culture and locker room.

Love this move, they kept Ferguson over him. Have to question this football acumen. Foreman vs Williams for the 4 spot as power back should be a fun battle.

If this works out like most of our waiver claims before the season starts it is going to be great.

Interesting we are close to the bottom of the list for waiver claims and no one took him before us.

Apparently, the Texans waived Foreman because of work habit issues.

Loved the prospect in college. Obviously he’s been injured and struggling in Houston. Not expecting much but have to admit, the potential gain here is pretty exciting.

Now thats better.  I like the physicality he can add to our stable of runners when healthy.

He's no Chuck Foreman but a pretty good back if he can work on that attitude issue that helped lead to his waiver.

Nice. He was one of my favorite running backs in that loaded 2017 draft class. Looking forward to seeing what he can do here.

Liked him a lot coming into the league but I'm wary with the achilles and work ethic/attitude questions. We'll see, I guess.

I trust Ballard completely, but was thinking the same thing. If these are their backs and they cut this guy...it makes me wonder. In Ballard we trust.

Lamar Miller is their starter, he’s a good RB.  It does fall off quick after him but they’ll pick someone up. Maybe Ajaye or even trade for Gordon.

scary.  Haha

but seriously, that and the bad work habit comments dont sound  likecBallard traits.  But i guess you dont know if you dont kick the tires yourself.  Ballard is thorough, thats for sure.

No risk move, but I prefer Williams...

Coming off an Achilles and has a low work ethic...

If he works out, he will be nice depth behind Mack. I don't see him making much of an impact, but maybe a change of scenery was what he needed.

This is the Texans subreddit. It is quite funny.

 

 

 

Hilarious.  I like “They’re playing 4D chess while we can’t even open the checkers box.”

 

That’s one of the few comments that can be quoted here.

I thought  this might happen as soon as the texans released  him. Not sure he'll make the 53 because  of his effort. Hopefully  getting  cut lit a fire in him.

If this guy still has PS eligibility left I won’t be surprised if he is eventually put on the PS. This could be a similar situation to Collins.

    • He's certainly not irredeemable. There's just a lot more scrutiny that comes with the QB position, fair or not. You can be WR and do drugs, beat women/kids, and still get more chances. CK did none of that.   I'm pretty sure uncle Jim put a foot up his backside, and made a call to Frank. I hope that's enough (Jim's foot), and I think the Colts (and Frank) are a good spot to provide support for him. 
    • I've been touting 2020 as "the year" for a while now.  I might be a year too early, but in watching the league this year one thing has struck me:  there aren't any truly "elite" teams out there.  Yes some are better than others, but IMHO the difference between the top and the bottom isn't as great as it used to be.  The Colts are clearly among the average teams, so I think with another shrewd draft (and that Skins round 2 pick sure looks good!) and a couple of impact FA's, I think this team can contend next year.  And Mr. Brady isn't going to be around much longer either.
    • Just to bring this back to last Sunday. Reich should of given hoyer all the snaps in practice.  Because if Jacoby could of went he would of  been fine with no reps. Then we would of had two QB prepared.
    • Agree 100% on Willis from a box perspective. He'll be very good if that's where they focus him. On Okereke, he gets swallowed up easily vs the run. I just don't see that improving a lot with his build. He came from one of the best strength programs in D1, so I just think he's topped out in that space as well. I think that's why they're trying him out in the SAM space.   I think Rock will be fine. Most of his errors are "rookie" type errors you can expect being tossed into the deep end. Physically he's fine. I think the mental part will catch up.
    • That is exactly why the Colts are what they are and the Patriots are a dynasty.  That emotional attachment did not serve Irsay well during the Pagano & Griggson era...did it?   He lost a franchise quarterback as a net result of all of this misplaced attachment because stayed too long with Griggson and Pagano who could not keep Luck out of harm’s way.   Vinny is a legend who has great exploits on his resume.  We get it.  However, I’d argue that most of his greatness was earned wearing another team’s uniform...the Patriots.  He kicked them to 3 Super Bowl titles compared to one in Indy.  He made his name and reputation with the Patriots.  Sure he has played for the Colts longer but his formulative and most accomplished years were spent in New England. And still Belichick had no problem letting him walk in 2005 when he perceived it to be in the best interest of the Patriots.  If Vinatieri was stinking it up like this with the Pats this year he would surely be gone by now...and wisely so.  But Ballard, Reich and Irsay are led by the heart strings (as you imply) and as a result the team suffers on the field.  It’s a bad message sent to the rest of the team.  Certain players can under perform and be rewarded solely on the basis of who they are and what they have achieved in the past.  While others are held accountable for poor play.  It’s a double standard that eats away at that  locker room “culture” that Ballard supposedly values so much.  Well...we are no longer living in the past and the present day Adam Vinatieri is a liability on the field to this football team.  A liability that teams like the Colts choose to live with to their detriment.  That’s not admirable...it is downright foolish in my opinion.
