What 10 players will have to go?

I agree with that. Also somehow I thought Glasgow was a safety when I posted on Rutledge. I guess this "lockdown" is turning my mind to mush. 

For what it's worth , I think Glasgow is a big favorite over Franklin.

Both Franklin and Adams played a bunch of STs, which is what most see Glasgow as being limited to. I think what Glasgow has over Franklin, is that he could possibly slot as Mike, where Adams and Franklin don't. Assuming their happy with the Walker and Oke (passing downs) rotation at Mike, with Oke starting at SAM, it might come down to the fact we don't need 2 Sams behind Oke. Ideally though, we never want to really see Adams, Franklin, or Glasgow starting at any of the LB spots. I'm actually hoping Speed emerges this year as a quality backup. He certainly has the measurables.

I assume Skai Moore is on the chopping block.   He hasn't had much opportunity in games, but he didn't show much in the games he played in.  

I was pulling for him because in college he had "a nose for the ball".  Often that is hard to teach.

This came out this afternoon from PFT.

 

"NFL teams might still be able to take 90 players to training camp.

But they may not put them all into pads.

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, teams could be allowed to carry the current 90-player roster for the first few weeks of camp if they use a split-squad set up for practices.

A proposed deadline for getting to an 80-man roster is Aug. 16, which would be before teams go into fully padded practices after a period of conditioning and work in shells, in hopes of limiting the amount of injuries upon start-up."

The thing I am watching is the players that are cut from other teams. 

I am pretty sure Ballard and crew will be taking a hard look at those players.

If Ballard finds one or two then who is out?

I haven’t read that officially yet.  They did say the PS will be 16 players.

According to a memo distributed on Friday to all teams (the memo, as best we can tell, was first reported by Brandon Krisztal of KOA in Denver), teams can either cut to 80 before July 28, or they can wait until August 16.

Teams that wait to reduce to 80 must utilize split-squad procedures, with one group mainly consisting of rookies, first-year players, and any quarterbacks or injured players assigned to that group. (Designations, once made, can’t be changed.) The second group will consist of all veteran players who report on July 28.

A team that chooses the split-squad approach can reduce to 80 at any time before August 16, and then merge into one unit.

Thanks.  So if a team goes to 80 before 7/28 they don’t have to do the split squads, right?   
 

This doesn’t make a ton of sense, 10 extra players isn’t going to make a difference if they’re testing every day anyway.  Plus, the PS will be 16 so you’d like to see as many players as possible.  
 

This is going to be one crazy season.

I agree, doesn't seem to be a big difference.

 

Guess we will see, I'm just anxious to see who we drop and if there are any players released that we bring in, at the 80 player deadline that is.

 

I'm sure there will be a few players swapped out at final cuts.

 

Definitely going to be a crazy season. Hopefully we get through it.

Sorry to be negative.  Seems hard to be optimistic....

It's really not as hard as you make it seem.

    • I've never had an actual job under a real boss in my life tbh. I have technically managed pokemon teams where we travel across the U.S. and play competitively for prizes, college scholarships, and other stuff though. Right now, I manage blackjack teams where I teach basic strategy and card counting and we go into casinos to win money sometimes (just a small operation, but I have to be sure everyone is good enough since it's a business). We aren't going to the casino right now because of the coronavirus.   Not technically the boss of a big company, but I was responsible for teams and still am winning money. I have two friends that play on fanduel with me, and we build lineups for baseball, basketball, and football. We've transitioned into other sports as well like golf, mma, and nascar. An interesting example here is I won $300 in a Colorado tournament for the NFL Draft on fanduel. We used a salary cap to predict who would go at each position and we had to get one of the first 4 players at each positions to qualify for points. You get 6, 3, 2 and then 1 for 1-4 respectively. You also got to pick a team you thought would trade the most. I picked the 49ers because they were cheap and I heard rumors they would trade down and also trade some players.   I didn't even let my mom cook for me as a kid as soon as I figured out I could make my meals more to my liking. Very picky eater, and she didn't cook for me exactly how I wanted. That helped me be more independent as an adult though (or it started it), so I guess it's a good thing in the end.   I honestly can't work with people very well, and I'm bipolar, so the two don't mix. That's why I do things where it's easy to get people to listen to me and I enjoy that don't feel like work.
    • Does that include managing a large team of people you're responsible for?  Because if it does, I really respect you for that.     I've accepted jobs/promotions before where I was the #1 guy managing large groups of people, and I absolutely hated it.  It's just too much stress.  Constant meetings.  Never-ending paperwork.  Endless hours.  Phone calls at every hour of every day about every little thing from every employee you're in charge of...   I guess I'm not a Peyton Manning.  I'm more of a role-player.  I'm the workhorse-do-everything-RB like Edge that makes Peytons' job easier without having to deal with the stress/demands of being Peyton Manning.  
    • I agree, it looks like Kimbrel isn't the answer. We are going to have to do it by bullpen by committee.
    • Yeah, Kimbrel sure looks snake bit. Gotta be tough after so much success!
    • Kimbrel might be toast, IDK. Kind of Feel bad for the guy.
