Colts claim Foreman off waivers

Recommended Posts

An Achilles injury has been the kiss of death for RB’s. I’m sure a lot of folks remember Vick Ballard.

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.

We're allowed 4 players on the PS with 2 years of experience IIRC. He was drafted in 2017 so he should be eligible.

Achilles are no joke for RBs. Add the lack of effort and late to practice issues... That's a lot to overcome. 

 

Absolutely loved him in College, and even remember his recruitment in HS a little. One of the digs on him in the draft was that at his weight, he was more finesse than power. While big, I don't see him as a Spenser Ware or Ford type of back. He's more of a heavier Mack or Wilkins style guy.

Williams practiced today and had like 3 TD. He is looking really good. Haven’t heard much about Wilkins.

Like the move he’s young, and if he can return to form this is a good look for the organization. I believe he can be stashed in the Practice Squad.

Do TD's in practice matter much?

I'm not being a smart *, I just thought it odd to bring it up.   Don't they practive goal line lines where the running back could end up with 6-7 TD's.

I believe he’s being brought in as the short yardage back, which Mack or Hines is not. 

 

However, if Foreman stays healthy and motivated, his ceiling could be much higher.

Well all I know is they like him and we have heard his name a lot at camp for making plays.

Just saw on his IG he has arrived in Indy. His IG doesn’t look alarming like he needs to grow up. He has a little girl it looks like he adores. The Texans are such a mess I bet it was just a bad fit.

This is the Texans subreddit. It is quite funny.

 

 

 

The replies in r/Texans are pretty contrasty in comparison to the takes in the Colts sub...

We'll see what happens with the Achilles thing. It is usually a big deal with backs, but nothing is ever 100 percent guaranteed.  Maybe he'll be fine.

I remember a lot of folks on here really wanted to draft him. I was never a big fan of his style, since he's the size of a power back but doesn't play like one. I saw him as a guy that looked good on paper, but would be very average on game day, so I wasn't on board with drafting him.

 

I'm absolutely on board with claiming him off waivers though. Very low risk with a potentially solid return. I think we have the culture and leadership for him to thrive. Hopefully he can realize his potential and help improve our RB room, even if it's just as depth.

Not expecting much...after the injury. Liked the Ware signing...but that is what you get when you go after injury-prone RBs. Doubt Foreman will be any different...but we'll see.

Ewww.  Hated the guy pre draft.  Loved the landing spot.  Hated the fact they waived him 2 years in.  Currently hate the fact we claimed him.  He's good to push the pile... if he ever gets to it.

lol that Texan thread was a treat lol.  I mean, I'd give him back, but now I want him to do good just because I want to see more Texan fans sack punching themselves.  That comment about eating the box of crayons was fabulous.

I'll take that as you're undecided on Foreman.

So I just saw foreman’s dad post on a colts Facebook page. Ballard is a friend of his families. This explains why we brought him in. Chris must know a lot more about this kid personally.

Remember Ballard used to coach football in Texas so I'm sure he's got some ties .

Yeah the one guy sounds like he fully expects him to be the next Emmitt Smith now that he's on the Colts, & he's at peace with it... he's like "I'm not even mad."

Foreman was a lazy slouch with the Texans. BO'B had high hopes for him but he just never showed any motivation to do anything. His release form Houston has been in the conversations on sport radio this week. No one misses him here.

On August 4, 2019, Foreman was waived by the Texans, who cited poor work habits and being late to team meetings. I sure hope this changes.

Or it isn’t true. The Texans are a mess. It’s going to be a uphill climb for him to make the roster. Sounds like a favor to the family since Ballard is friends with them.

He couldn't make our team slouching.  Strong competition at pretty much every position.

He'll have to bring it or get left in the dust .

    • That changes with the wins and losses.  As always, things are never as good as they seem just as they are not as bad as advertised. 
    • He may turn out to be a decent pro, I really don't know. You are better than me at analyzing college players. I just don't watch enough college games to try and guess who will be a good or great pro. I have seen Burrow and Tua play some but it is because they are always on TV. I have looked up Jordan Love on youtube lately because you guys think he may end up being a good pro. To me the draft is fun, mocks are fun to read too, but the draft is also a crapshoot. Teams have to get lucky and guess a lot, like KC did with Mahomes. Baltimore did with Lamar too. With Luck we just knew he would be good to great. For so many good QB's there has been many that have been busts like Ware, Mirer, Shuler, Leaf, Couch, J.Russell, RG3, Mariota, etc.. When those guys came out they were labeled as can't miss pro's. = Will be good at worse. Thank God we took Manning instead of Leaf.
    • Yeah, not a great game for him. He still made some nice throws, but the consistency wasn't there. He had some very questionable accuracy on several important throws that he needed to make.      This was a beautiful throw though. He had several NFL type throws even in this game in which he played far from his best. The lack of consistency is why he won't go day 1 or 2. If he was more consistent we wouldn't be talking about him as an "under the radar"/day 3 QB.      Nah, he needed better accuracy on his throws and needed to get rid off the ball more quickly on several occasions. His OLine didn't help either. 
    • I like him too and think as a starter he can win games, things just aren't going our way right now. Losing that Houston game ruined the season.
    • Best back up in the league, quality guy, I like him.
