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.

 

Edit: Just saw krunk’s tweet. Oops.

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.

    • Since Vinny's knee is basically shot for the 2019 season this is a great chance for Chris Ballard to get a good look at McLaughling as possibly the Colts starting kicker beyond 2019. Either way, the Colts will move on from Vinatieri no matter what he decides to go beyond 2019. Place him on IR and see what you have from McLaughing. Worst case scenario you sign or draft another Kicker to be your guy.
    • I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that. 
    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
    • IF Ballard and Reich still think JB is the answer at this point, then we need to start thinking about who is running what at Colt world HQs.
