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.

    • If that ever happened, you'd either be the smartest coach since Lombardi, or run out of town on a rail, depending on how things turn out.   You know, realistically, that would never happen though.  As we saw last season, no matter how bad JB looked, they wouldn't put Kelly in.  Even when the game was meaningless.  (Unless they purposely wanted to tank that JAX game.  In that case, it worked well).  But overall, coaches are conservative and will go with an experienced player unless that rookie is wowing people in practice.  It even took a year with Mahomes on the bench, right?   I think we know why they put Swag on the PS instead of Eason.  Very small chance anyone is going to claim him.  Whereas, someone would take a chance on a free 4th rounder with potential.
    • Besides the fact that Brissett is the veteran who knows the playbook and has a years worth of starting experience and can step in easily in case Rivers gets hurt there is one other thing.  It's only the 3rd game of the season.  We have already seen a number of QB's get hurt and are already missing starts.  There is plenty of time for more QB injuries to happen and to contending teams.  Each game that passes his cap hit goes down.  I don't know when the trade deadline is but at that time his cap hit might be affordable to a lot of teams especially if there is a QB injury to a contending team.  Letting him play in the 4th QTR is good for us and allows teams to see him play as well.  Who's to say Big Ben doesn't get hurt again or some other veteran QB on a contender.  So we let him play for us just in case and for other teams as well.  Once the trade deadline passes our situation could change.  Maybe Eason starts getting some reps.   I have already seen BR's list of players most likely to be traded before the deadline and he is on it and in the top 10.  To me it makes sense to play him in the 4th QTR if possible at least until the deadline passes.  Then it depends on where we are in the race and what will be our strategy going forward with a QB that will not be with us next year.  Just a different thought on the topic.  
    • The quarterback you mentioned were all taken very high, and if you look around the league yes nowadays in the NFL when your drafted high your going to play soon, unless your Jordan Love in GB  .    Eason was taken in the 4th round, nobody knows if he is going to be are guy. Mahomes' and Wilson's late round quarterback studs don't just fall from the sky its VERY rare.   Also what if Rivers get hurt, Eason could very well not even be close to ready to NFL action. We know what we will get with Jacoby, a season could be salvaged with him.   Lastly how do you even know JB is on his way out. What if Rivers retires this year, your ready to put all the marbles on an unproven 4th round project quarterback? JB could have a furture with this team yet.
    • He's simply an APB. Running him power/man blocking on goal line is epic dumb. I don't mind an occasional between the Ts run to keep Ds honest when he's in, but not in short or goal line. He should be primary zone read blocking, and edge when he runs. A few power/man up the gut when teams are in deep zone is fine too.
