Browns Waive Antonio Callaway


Recommended Posts

He's a bit of a headcase (a lot of a headcase) but he's really talented. I just wish he went to a less dysfunctional team than the Browns. 

 

Mentoring and structure could have been great for him.

 

Still wouldn't hate a 1yr flyer deal for him. See what he can bring.

I'd take him for the rest of this year and see how it goes. if he screws up cut him and move on or he behaves and becomes a key developmental player for us. it's a very low risk and possible high reward situation imo.

If he did come in here and wasn’t suspended, who would you cut to get that roster spot?

not sure could cut Kelly he isnt needed lol 

Possibly. I see other needs right now than a cast off WR on a short week. Cb or S is probably a bigger concern if our guys are that nicked up. But unfortunately, Kelly is a bubble roster cut.

Cain had baggage and our staff could not mold him.  Cain is a pleasure compared to Callaway; hes a disaster.

Cain’s main issues with the Colts were injuries.   Whatever baggage he had that made him slip to the 6th round were not brought here to the Colts. 
 

To the best of my knowledge there are no negative stories about Cain while in Indianapolis.   Except injuries.   He wasn’t healthy enough, long enough to get polished enough to co tribute much.   But he has still has a ceiling.  His future is still viable if he can stay healthy for an extended period of time.  But in every interview I ever saw, Ballard spoke highly of Cain.  Very highly. 
 

Maybe it’s with Pittsburgh, maybe he returns to the Colts someday.   I wish the kid well.

    • You just basically repeated what I’ve been saying for weeks about Wisco.  Thanks.   beng from Wisco is a negative predicter of an effective nfl rusher too.   it is also my dispassionate analysis that this years line is quite. Bit better than the one Mack stated behind and that his 3.8 almost certainly would have been better with a better line.
    • Don’t be so emotional Estreet.  We are analyzing here.  I said right now.   I don’t understand why JT is getting the Brisett treatment this year.   the narrative in the echo chamber here is the line sucks, Reich sucks, rivers sucks, the receivers suck and that’s why we don’t run well.  seems far fetched.  JT will be a useful pro but I think he will have limitations and will need a complimentary back
    • A team could skip a year here and there...and of course it’s dependent on the draft class as well (especially for which round a WR is taken). But in the course of a 5-year stretch...it should take 4 early WRs picks to build a truly strong corps...unless the first 3 are all HRs...and then you decide to pay them.   But that’s pretty unlikely. Even PIT...who has a great trio...missed on a few. But by drafting so many WRs...they can potentially move on from JuJu...which will save a lot of cap space.   Of course there are also trades for established talent...so that would just replace the need to draft one for that given year...ala Hopkins in ARI.    I would consider WR to be 3 of the starting 22...if that team runs 1-1 sets 2/3 or greater of the time. But 4-5 are getting good snaps typically.    All of this is to say...WR is a position I value highly.     
    • The team doesn't deserve it though. Despite all these weaknesses you claim the Colts have the bottom line is the Colts are  4 - 2 and still in the race for the playoffs.   I know every single team has weaknesses and its how you adapt to those that make you a good team.   Not every team is gonna be in win now mode like the Bucs this year.    Ballard going after Rivers wasn't that! He saw a guy who could possibly be an overall upgrade over Brissett and went with it but also made upgrades in the draft that have been fantastic so far in Taylor and Blackmon. Pittman will return and catch up soon! Eason is developing well too for 21'    The point is Colts are making adjustments for the present as well as the future but sometimes the value takes time. Patience is the biggest key here.
