They have worked out 2 guards, 1 tackle and a TE already.

 

All signs point to Burton and Day being placed on IR to Return and a TE and an OLineman signed to cover the first 3-6 weeks. 

 

Yeah that is why I have the most players at those 2 positions. I suppose we could just sign 1 or 2 of our guys we released instead of going to PS potentially.(Windsor, Hunt, Green) I would rather have Hentges over Green though.

No guarantee either clears waivers.

 

Pretty sure we wanted to get Cain to PS last year when Steelers claimed him.?

Yeah but our depth at WR is far better this year. I think the water has sailed on Cain

I agree.  There are guys like Marcus Johnson who was on the roster last year they might bring back to the PS before Cain if they lose Fountain.

Probably, we don't really need any WAr's. Just listed Cain because of team connection and Bitler because he was a young guy.

I imagine we carry 2 WRs on practice squad. Marcus Johnson makes the PS before Fountain in my opinion.

I could very easily see that my point was more there are other options out there with ties to the Colts besides Cain.

Yeah possibly, like I said we really dont need any WRs. I do think the Colts were trying to get Cain to PS last year when Steelers claimed him.

 

I personally would take Johnson and Fountain over Cain, but he is worth a consideration if either or both are claimed.

Johnson is the most obvious but any of the guys they released today the might take a look at.  It’s not impossible someone Dulian or Paton gets released and ends up on the PS after final cuts are done.

Yeah I wouldn’t be blown away by any of those ending up on the PS.  I’d like to see them keep Johnson.  I liked him last year.

Yeah, I didnt list any current Colts cuts on the list. Hoping whoever we want will be signed to PS.

I did say they would keep 2. In the post you quoted. Just that I would take Johnson before Fountain.

Even said that was the 2 I would prefer. Idk? Maybe you should check what you're reading?

I live outside Philly and watch a lot of Eagles football.  Eagles CB situation is bad and both of these guys have been terrible in the pros.  Perhaps another year removed from the achilles injury, Jones can turn it around but so far he has been nowhere near the pre injury 1st rd prospect.

Hakeem Butler... Wow! I know he got injured last year but what happened this year? Damn... This must be one of my biggest misses in the draft. I doubt we go for him though. 

 

IMO TE will be one of the positions we address and CB is possibly the other one... I wonder if we don't have a trade up our sleeve. We have only 2 healthy TEs and it's putting a lot of hope on the waiver wire to get one that might be getting significant number of snaps week 1.

The team has already basically chosen whatever a Chaz Green is over Josh Andrews though..... Wasn't a direct cut/replace moment, but still....could have had either, and kept only a Chaz.

OL - PTW (OT) is probably the only guy I go after strongly for the PS, outside of our own guys. Raw and needs development, but has all the tools. The Eagles have a great OL too, so no shame getting cut as a rook for them. There's a few other OLs out there that are interesting, just not sure how much of an upgrade they are.

 

TE - Personally I'd stand pat with only the three on the 53. I'd go after Hentges for the PS though. Just not a lot out there. And I think we can get buy just fine until Burton gets back (assuming Doyle is fine). I really like potential development from a guy like Vollert though. Definitely a project and more WR like right now, but a year of S&C and position coaching might do him well.

 

DBs - Nothing out there that I'd go after strongly for the 53, but there are a few guys I'd try to grab for our PS. HaHa, Amukamara, Jackson, etc. Hairston and Farley are both available.

 

WR - If we can retain Fountain and Johnson on the PS, I'm good. If one of those gets picked up, I'll happily take Cain back on the PS. Lawrence Cager, Jauan Jennings, and Gehrig Dieter are guys I'd try to take a look at for the PS as well. Moncrief is available too lol.

 

DL - There's not really any DEs or DTs out there from CD day that interest me. Jonathan Kongbo is a pure project that might be worth a PS spot. My only wish.... That Clowney doesn't end up in TN.

    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...  
    • You give him the same weapons as Watson had, he will. 
    • This is why drafting a QB/Eason panning out would be ideal for when this happens again. I have stated I'm all for Stafford, but it further restricts you.    We will have about $85 million  committed to Buckner($21 mill), Leonard($19 mill), Nelson($19 mill), Kelley($11 mill), & B. Smith($15 mill) alone after next season.    The issue with having so much talent is eventually you have to get rid of some. I wouldn't be surprised if we trade a star in a few years because we can't afford to pay them(like the 49ers) for a high draft pick.   
    • I meant it's not gonna work as easily in college. Hand fighting and levrage matter more which Basham has. That was my point.
