No way.  That dude had me send him 10k to free him from a Nigerian Prison back in the early 2000's and his father, the King of The ofogono tribe, never repaide tenfold ...  I don't trust him any longe

https://www.nfl.com/news/player-cuts-tracker-nfl-teams-finalize-53-man-rosters-for-2020-season   Figured they’ll start rolling in soon

Hence why I said it would be a surprise cut...  I didn't say I think they will, I said that I think the surprise cut, if any, would be Jacoby.   That said, if the Colts FO is making choices

Thanks! I see quite a few names already showing across the NFL on that list. Colts show Nix, Bunting, and Donnal at the moment.

 

Colts practice tomorrow (Thursday) and have Friday off. Then Saturday is cut day.

Honestly, I think we're gonna see either Easton or Kelly cut, but I think the surprise might be Brissett. 

 

You think the Colts are going to cut the guy who just led the team in their Black Lives Matter video?

 

Seriously?

 

Wow......

That said, if the Colts FO is making choices based on one's social stances and not football ability, that's a whole other matter that is highly concerning.

Wishful thinking.  The Colts have made it clear he’s the backup and Eason and Kelly are fighting for the third qb spot.

I didn't say I was wishing or hoping he was cut.  The question was " wonder if we'll have any surprise cuts?"  To me, Brissett would be a surprise cut...

true but still, anything is possible.  I don't think JB goes anywhere but never know until the ink dries.

And you don’t know Phillip Rivers isn’t getting cut either then.  Now that we’ve established that anyone COULD be cut I don’t think that’s what the OP meant.

A realistic surprise.  Just naming players on the roster that aren’t getting cut isn’t the point.  Someone like chase or someone on the D-line, or one of the WRs they probably aren’t keeping six are the most realistic options to me.

no more likely than Brissett

Not sure why you are getting beat up over this.  I thought JB Could be viewed as a “surprise cut” when i read it.  I think we’d all be surprised, so.......

  The only way i could see that is if they feel theres not much drop off from JB to Kelly.  Eason wont be ready for 2020 so no use to discuss that.  We’re really talking about production of JB vs Kelly as the backup.  If they dont feel Kelly could give them a chance to win, then you gotta keep JB for the year.

The bummer this uear is we’re gonna cut some guys i like.  I wanna keep 4 QBs, 4 RBs, 6 WRs (at least), depth at OL, a bunch of DL, and TEs are an issue,   We just cant keep them all.

Would Eason be grabbed off PS?  Would Kelly?  
 This cut-down will be very interesting.

Chester isnt worst wr ever, though getting cut but Phins who wr group is between 29-32 likely mean his NFL career at this point probably over, wouldnt be shocked to see him resurface in new XFL 3.0 next year, though turning back to movies where he came from could be in the cards as well.

I liked Chester.  Underdog, Over-achiever type imo.

He was productive (2nd most yards in 2018) with Luck. And he was running wide open in the seam a lot last year while on the field. He's certainly not great, but certainly not the worst lol. I'm glad we upgraded, but he was a good team mate and hard worker.

I’m not saying they’d making it based on his Social Stances....   I’m saying the back up is a leader on the team based on his............

 

LEADERSHIP! 
 

I don’t see this F.O. cutting or trading JB, despite what so many here (not you) might want.  If we agree that the Colts are all-in on this season (and we appear to be) then keeping the clear and obvious backup would seem to be the only move for the Colts.   Sorry for the confusion.

We can only hope so.

Brissett brought us a 30th ranked passing attack last year and is costing us way too much for what we get.

Kelly can definitely do better and maybe Eason can too.

IMO no QB's will be cut, especially with this Covid-19 virus.

I don’t think they keep four QBs at least at first.  It’s very likely they can get Kelly back if the need him.  Also this is a team that historically only keeps two in most years so keeping three is already keeping more than normally do.

IMO we will keep Eason on the active roster and Kelly will remain on the PS. Rivers and JB will be 1 and 2. That is what I meant by 4 QB's.

Do you follow the Colts much?

 

If you did, you’d know what Chris Ballard thinks of JB.   If you did, you’d know what Frank Reich thinks if him.   If you did, you’d know what the team thinks of JB.  But you seem completely unaware.   
 

Look, you’re entitled to any opinion you want.  But you seem to be trying to stop a tidal wave with a screen door.   Good luck with that!

Kelly should be the one cut and on PS.  Not a single team in the league wanted him last year, bad enough to give a roster spot anyway.... And someone would grab a fourth rd. Rookie QB and take a look for a few weeks at least.... 

 

Honestly, if Eason was the cut, and they lost him.... Reich and Ballard would look at least a little foolish.... 4th round picks are no guarantee, but it would be an uncharacteristic waste.... And potentially leave them with 0 signed QBs heading into the offseason.... Really don't see the team that got burned a few times by their QB as doing that...

He hates JB, I have seen enough of his posts to know. He isn't getting cut so sorry about the haters luck.

You are right .... But damn I'll be glad when some other HC, GM, and team think that highly of their newly signed backup QB, Brissett.... He's a nice dude though....

    • I don't get this. First, if you're skeptical of the pro day numbers, then just throw out all of this year's testing. I think that's unreasonable. If you want to bump him up a tenth of a second, that still puts him in the same range as those other guys.   Second, watching him play, he has more than adequate movement ability. This has become a meme. He's not Fields or Lance. But even in today's NFL, you don't have to be freakishly athletic to play QB at a high level. He's athletic enough. Another one.    We agree, if I identified Jones as "my guy" in this draft, I wouldn't be moving up to #3 for him. But he's a different kind of prospect than Lance and Fields, and as much as there is to like about those guys, they have question marks of their own. And if they were to struggle in the NFL, it wouldn't be the first time that a tools-y athletic QB prospect fell short of expectations. But I'm not taking issue with Lance or Fields, at all. They should be ranked high this year.   Just pointing out, again, that some of the Mac Jones coverage is unfair. He's being written off as an unathletic, physical dud, and that's nonsense. He has similar or better physical ability as several other guys who have gone top five in recent seasons. Dwayne Haskins and Teddy Bridgewater were physically uninspiring. Mac Jones is a good enough athlete to play NFL QB.   It's fair to say he'll be overdrafted if he goes in the top ten. I'm disagreeing with the idea that he's not gifted enough to play well. 
    • Maybe to #21? With Wentz as our QB, I wonder if Ballard would consider him? .... And Wentz will say "oh boy, here we go again".  
    • I certainly understand the Ingram intrigue but I'd have to go with Kerrigan here. His body has a lot more left in the tank than Ingram and his body is as healthy as can be due to Washington's dominant young d-line. Kerrigan could certainly give us 1-2 years of above average play! 
    • I remember it like yesterday, then read the reasons shortly after the selection, and they made sense.  Edge played at The U, which ran the stretch, and the Colts were running it as well.  Edge also had fewer miles on his legs, due to being in running back by committee for most of his career there.  Lastly, Edge was the better receiver and pass blocker.    I sometimes wonder if Ditka thought about making that insane offer to the Colts first? 
    • I don't care how he tested (especially this year, when all those pro-day tests are under serious question)... I care how he plays and how he looks on tape. Players that didn't test off-the-charts are some of the best playmakers in football - Mahomes ran 4.82 with 30 inch vertical. I'd take him over any of the best athletes in the league making plays on the move. With that said... I don't see Mac Jones in similar light even though they tested very similarly. I don't think he's stuck in mud in the pocket. But I do not think he has enough mobility to scramble when needed. He will be one of the worst scrambling starting QBs in the league IMO. I think him scrambling will be extremely rare in the league. I just don't think he has the mobility and physical talent to do it while launching the ball downfield.    I like him too. But there are levels to this thing. I like him as a late first-second round QB. I think he can be a good productive QB in the right system(Shannahan system for example). I don't like him enough to give up 3 1st round picks + 3d for him, though. This is my whole contention here. He's just not THAT type of player IMO. Lance and Fields are.
