Pats put him on IR.


Albert breer says

Source says Patriots WR Josh Gordon expects to be medically cleared soon, and that his knee injury is "minor". I was told he ran 22 MPH on the treadmill during a rehab session today. Once he's cleared, he hopes to be released off of IR and sign with a new team.

I'm not one to usually jump on these FA ideas but I wouldn't mind Ballard checking things out. 

I've watched a lot of the Pats this year and I like Gordon. Could be an interesting addition especially if we were to not bring back Funchess next year.

No. By the jags game we should have all six of our WR healthy and playing.

But will they play at a high level. Only two of them are currently. Cain and Roger's haven't done  much. Funchess  and Campbell  who knows what we will get from them.

I like Gordon,  im just not sure he fits here.

Anyone that can run fast , run precise routes and catch balls fits here.    I don't think he is a Ballard guy though

That's what I mean. Is he a locker room fit.

No to Gordon. 
 

And I just read an article on nfl.com about trades each team should make. They suggested we trade for AgholorAm and say no to that as well. They are close to getting their full compliment of receivers back and I think Ballard / Reich really like the position.

All players that are released after Wed have to go through the waiver wire. Doesn’t matter if they are a veteran or not.

If his knee injury is minor, then why exactly is he being released?  For some other reason?

He's not really being released. He's injured and being placed on IR which effectively ends his season (and contract with NE). NE only had one slot left for "IR-designated to return", and they're going to use that on their OT (so no room for Gordon).

 

Doesn't mean they can re-sign him next year. N'Keal Harry is due back next week from injury, so they're probably happy with Edleman/Sanu/Dorsett/Harry going forward.

Man I wish the Colts at least bring him in to kick the tires.

2) I am not sure there is a more tired message board phrase than "kick the tires."

Now THIS is an excellent answer.

 

Seriously good.   All posters should read it, and then read it again.   Very helpful.

 

Good job.     :thmup:

Good question.   Glad someone asked it.   I was about to.   Turns out, the next post, by East Street,  had all the answers anyone could want.   But I yours was still the right question to ask.

   I’m with you there: the Colts acquiring Eagles players hasn’t worked out well (Herremans, Cole and who can forget Hank “the hands” Baskett)?
   I still think Cain and Campbell will be worked into games during the year. Reich will find a way.
  And I think Rogers will break a PR this year.

  I’m glad Ballard didn’t go after players, though talented, might not fit for the Colts.

   When they consider players, they look at

character.

    Pass

Hey speak for yourself mister. I am very good at kicking tyres. Only yesterday I successfully kicked all 4 tyres on a Volvo in under 3.2 seconds, and I have been featured in 'Pirelli Monthly' as the next 'top thing'. With Ferrari lobbying for Olympic status, I could be front page news in years to come.....

 

Now lay off my sport. Just because you bought me a beer at the LOS once......

Doesn't make a ton of sense to me.  The Patriots have been all in on Gordon for literally years now.

MHO someone's reading way too much into the Sanu trade.  The patriots can compensate for the arrival of Sanu without sarificing Gordon

 

Assuming Gordon gets healthy, the Patriots depth chart goes like so

 

Edelman

Sanu/Gordon

Gordon/Sanu

Dorsett

Meyers

 

With Olzewski and Slater as special teams guys who fill in on occasion

 

Call me nuts but I don't see a surplus there.  That's a good deep corps but not exactly overloaded.  Solid 1-3 and 2 decent depth guys but nothing otherworldly.  Why the hek would the Pats trade Gordon with that in mind?  Makes absolutely no sense to me.

 

Right now the most likely casualty of the Sanu trade is the malcontented Michael Bennett

Guys even when our WR core is completely healthy, they are average at best. Without TY in, they are bottom 5. Idk about Gordon but we definitely need an upgrade, if not during the season, then early in the draft next year.

Between TY, Ebron and Doyle and Pascal, the Colts have plenty of quality pass catchers. I'd even add Hines in there (who I'd like to see lined up at WR some) 

 

Plus the Colts have Funchess and Campbell coming back at some point. (Plus Fountain is already jogging) 

 

Gordon is a head case that doesn't fit into the Colts culture.

Ok thanks.  NE didn't have a return from IR slot available when they placed him on IR.  I get it.

 

How bad was the knee injury when they placed him on IR, knowing they were out of slots for returning, or maybe they didn't know that at the time?

    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.      
    • Yea that’s what his combine profile states but when the scouts took him through position drills and had him run his 40 at pro day their numbers tell a different story. And anyone can tell you a 40 yard dash is all about technique. Track speed doesn’t necessarily translate to “On the Field Speed” but I found the article and verbatim this is what the scouts said on Willis. If you’re curious to read the entire article it’s on Colts.com and titled “Through the Scouts Eye”   “So, you see him not only playing in the box, but I mean, he's played free safety. He plays nickel. He's played on the slot and he did a pretty good job with that. I think he's faster than a lot of people and a lot of people give him credit for it and he tested pretty well that way. I think he ran in the 4.4s, and he's a very well-rounded player. I was always taught a long time ago slow safety usually get your beat, dumb safeties always get your beat. He's the polar opposite of both. So, we're really excited about him.”
