So when's Wilson getting cut! :funny:

 

Wilson showed some very promising traits in 2018.  I think Ballard really likes Wilson, but he did mention a few times that he's not concerned about Wilson's physical skills, but was wondering if he was having confidence issues.  Just from listening to press conferences, I get the feeling that Ballard is hoping Wilson bounces back to his 2018 form and continues improving.  Won't be shocked to see Wilson get cut, but don't think that's in the immediate plans.

So Rock is CB1 at this point? Doubt it.

 

I don't know that our D truly has a CB1.  I don't really recall our CBs really shadowing other teams' #1 WR, rather they play their side of the field in a cover 2 scheme.  Anyway, Rock made significant progress as last year unfolded.  I think he's going to continue improving.  I am happy going into this season as a starter.

We still need a second strong safety?

 

 

I guess with his injury issues, I'm not too surprised that Geathers has not been brought back yet.  However, he was a captain and Ballard seems to really like him.  Anybody know if we've even been negotiating with him or if we're planning to let him walk?

Carrie is likely depth behind Moore at Nickle. Wilson and Rhodes are likely battling it out for CB2 job. Not sure where Tell fits at this point, but love to see him develop.


I would take Carrie outside rather than Wilson. Carrie is capable of playing both inside and out , Wilson on the other hand he hasn’t really shown he can successfully and consistently play inside or outside. He’s in his final contract year and he’s looking to be the odd man out.

I wonder if Carrie or Rhodes could play strong safety? I think I read both were good tacklers but have not had great success lately in coverage.

I don't see Carrie or Wilson playing a bunch unless someone gets hurt. I see Tell likely being the first off the bench to back up CB1 or 2.

Good signing by Ballard. Good player at a great price. Now sign Geronimo Allison to help our WR group and I will be happy with our off season

"Carrie, like Rhodes, struggled a bit in 2019. More than 68% of passes thrown his way were completed and he had a quarterback rating allowed of 105.1 He fared much better in 2018, however, with just 55.9% completions allowed an a QB rating of 76.3."

So we got two guys for relatively cheap who struggled last year with the hope that they will rebound in 2020.

Wouldn't Tell be our #2 SS being as that is what he played in college?

The fact he is still here should be a crime he was awful when he had to play any meaningful defensive snaps last season.

It ultimately comes down to playing on special teams and Wilson simply isn’t a part of that. If he’s not one of the starting cornerbacks and he’s not going to contribute on special teams, there often isn’t a role for him on game days.

I just got a chance to listen to his zoom interview. This guy is impressive. He is going to be a great leader if he makes the team. Wilson is going to have to really step up if he wants to make the team.

I talked to a buddy who is a Browns fan. He said he's not the best starter, but good depth. I also read a few things on him. Several said he'd do best in a cover 2 D, so perhaps he'll do OK here. He played mostly nickelback for the Raiders, and was #2 or #3 for the Browns before being released this spring. If I had to guess, he'll be primarily Moore's backup if he makes the team. Just not sure if you want him playing any #1 or #2 CB.

Prior to the 2018 season Carrie signed a 4 year 31 million dollar contract with the Browns so his release could have been a cost cutting move along the lines of Desir. Maybe he has some good football left. There are probably 2 corner spots up for grabs behind Moore, Rock, Tell, and Rhodes.

Yes I do think this was a move to find a backup to Moore. I did read some quotes from him and he talked about blitzing and the fun stuff of playing in the slot.

I'm sure it was cost cutting, but from what I've heard from a few Browns fans, had a lot to do with performance as well. Overall, just very poor value, or bang for buck. His PFF rating and PR allowed aren't very good. Hoping he fits better in our C2. Like I said in an earlier post, he'll likely be Moore's back up. If the guy is starting at CB1 or CB2, I think we have major injury problems.

Lets not forget that he was let go for the same reason as Rhodes and that is they were both signed to heavy contracts but didn’t meet the demands!  Just because we signed him for $1MIL doesn’t mean he is camp fodder!  He was highly conveyed for a reason just didn’t work out in their system.

    • Not trying to be argumentative but you simplifying this issue is not the reality of it all. Not only are there 53 players plus 10 practice squad players (90 in training camp) there are how many others around a NFL team? Doctors, trainers, coaches, assistant coaches, coordinators and whoever else. Just the sheer space need to keep social distance is impossible.  All of these people have families away from a locker room so it's not like they are going to be quarantined.  How about the mental aspect of the players? Can the players put all of this out of their thought process when their mindset has to be 100% about the game itself?  We are always reminded about distractions in the locker room and how it can have a negative effect.  IMO this goes much deeper than what can and can't be controlled.   
    • Its funny you say that.... I feel the same......   Strange times......
    • I would tend to agree   There is significant $$ moving around so I believe there will be a season of some sort.... maybe shortened.....   I think the NFL union may hold the players back from competing until there is a resolution or some protection.   We are seeing a crazy jump in new cases in Texas. (My daughter just tested positive   she is ok now)    If we are in mid August and the new cases in Covid starts to drop AND the death rates are dropping we may see a season.....   If not..... we may see a start in Oct......   Who knows....    
    • There is a big difference. After they all get initially tested the chances of it spreading among players is low. With the amount of times they will be tested and the fact none are going to even get in the facility with even a slight cough until they are tested the chances of it spreading is pretty small. Yes initially there will be some. I don’t even believe there are all these asystematic  cases. I think there are a lot of false positives. Which is why the nfl has a different protocol for them.
