Colts 53 Man Cut Transactions Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm still leaning to us signing Hoyer for the year and we carry three QB's on the active roster.  Walker is there for now but that can quickly change.  Just a hunch.

Chad Kelly still might end up there. From what I understand walker is really good at getting film together and those kinds of things a practice squad guy tends to do.

The bright side it will not be more than 2 weeks

I have a question. This guy they claimed can they just put him on the practice squad now.

Claiming a player off waivers requires them to go directly to the 53 man roster for at least 1 week (I believe). Then we'd have to cut him, him clear waivers, then get signed to the PS (if eligible).

hoyer would be a nice bridge, but a lot of teams are going to want him .  with walker on PS we probably sign brock or something soon

Flowers was a QB. Perhaps he will end up as our backup? lol

George Blanda was on the QB Depth Chart and primary K for the Raiders

If we carry 3 QB Hoyer would be a good mentor to CK. As long as it doesn’t cost us a depth spot we really need somewhere else.

OMG Phillip Walker to Colts practice squad when are they finally gonna realize this guy sucks and move on for good.

They don’t ever have any plans to ever play him. He is good at what a they want out of him. They are never going to actually play him in a game.

Well they'll turn him into a 3-4 OLB for sure, which honestly, he looked better to me in that spot than as a 4-3 End

Just roll with Phillip Walker?

No they need another QB on the active roster for two weeks.  They aren’t going into games with just one QB.  Since they didn’t claim someone they aren’t rushing which means they want a vet which is to be expected.

No you have to sign them to your active roster and if it’s from another team they have to stay there for at least three weeks.

With only one Waiver claim looks like Hale Hentges is Safe 

They are still going add another QB at somepoint this week.  Someone will have to go then.  It might not be Hentges but someone will have to go.

But technically they could just pull Walker up from the practice squad for the first two games.

I was thinking Milligan will be one and I don’t think 7 CBS will be kept

Did Ballard and Reich need practice on their cut speeches

With the way we interchange corners into safeties we very well may keep 7.

 

So we only have 8 offensive lineman.

maybe Rosen just isnt good.  ive seen worse, but doubt hes the answer for anyone 

 

I think there has always been those that question about his 'love for the game', not his talent.  The greats are all in, work hard, work at getting better.  Rosen is ? where??  Luck retires because he isn't 'all in ' right now. Honesty.

That doesn’t bother me. He must be doing a good job as the practice squad guy. It’s not like he will ever get a chance to play.

Very often, for a P.S. Quarterback, it is mimicking the upcoming opposing teams QB, their plays they run and how they run them.  That way #1 defense gets to see on the field what they learned in meetings and during game plan install and may well see game day.

Did he clear the waiver process?

If any of these guys weren't hurt all that bad and were bubble/roster material for at least another team or two, their agents will be asking for injury settlement.  The others will collect their pay and sit out.

Looks like hogan and Travis passed through waivers. Not sure If they have PS time left.

 

They passed rules not too long ago that allowed more players the P.S. option, even some vets with 2 years or less experience to be eligible.  See below-

 

***************


Each team is allowed to carry 10 players on its practice squad. Teams participating in the International Player Development Program can also carry one (additional) international player to the practice squad.

 

Teams are allowed to sign four players with two accrued seasons to the practice squad. The other six players must have fewer than two years of experience. Players can’t stay on the practice squad for more than three seasons. A player must be on the practice squad for a minimum six games for that season to count toward the three-year limit.

If they were going to do that they would have left him on the active roster.  You can’t just use someone from the practice squad they have to be on the active roster.

    • It's unlikely that this happens.   However, if it did, you'd have to be nuts not to want him back on your team. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.  Some people are upset, sure. But you'd pass on a top 5 QB because of emotional entanglements? Insanity.
    • I’ve been in this boat for a couple months now. Even if we start a season I don’t see any way we end it, so it’s hard for me to put any kind of stock into players opting out one way or another. 
    • https://www.foxbusiness.com/sports/dolphins-owner-turns-to-company-he-invested-in-for-covid-19-protection   Dolphins using special UV lighting to sanitize locker room and meeting rooms. Pretty cool stuff and the kind of ingenuity it takes to move forward.
    • That is how I became a Cub fan as well. I got cable tv in 1984 and the Cubs were always on WGN with Harry calling games and I got addicted. The 1984 team was great too (fun year) and should've been in the WS but blew a 2-0 nothing lead in the NLCS. I loved Ryne Sandberg and Rick Sutcliffe. In 1987 the Cubs were mediocre but Andre Dawson won NL MVP and once again the Cubs were fun to watch. I just stayed a fan since then even through the lean years and there have been many. Finally in 2015 the Cubs became a powerhouse and have been since then winning a WS in 2016. Off year last year but 84-78 was still a winning season. So far this season, the Cubs look great again.
    • Here is where I sit. Which is a safer situation to be in. A controlled environment that is constantly testing and taking measures to limit contact, sanitize, and limit  the spread of the disease and because you are being tested so often could likely notify you that you caught it sooner and help protect you from spreading it to your family and allow you quicker treatment all the while making millions of dollars well i think that would be a better option. Staying at home isn’t exactly safe...and I’d be surprised these guys aren’t at more risk by opting out then opting in. That said it’s a free country and if they are worried about their health that is respectable....I mean sure they play the most violent and harmful sport/activity that one could so obviously worrying about their health goes so far but it’s their right to choose. Just know you while you are sitting someone is taking your job and that money you pass up there is no other job after football that you can make up that money in.
