Hardly. Just a fill in while Trey Burton is recovering

Solid meh from me.  Decent but not great size, decent not great hands, decent not great speed.  Seems to be able to play his assignment reasonably well but nothing special.  Might be a good reserve but I don't see any real standout talent here.

Out of the TE options avail, I really like this signing.  He was one of the biggest surprises in Eagles camp and they were planning to bring him back.

 

 

 

Great job Ballard! Proud of you for this shrewd move!

Probably will get Burton to IR.

My understanding is that the IR moves can't occur prior to the waiver claims.  So we will have to cut someone - perhaps Matthew Adams?.

 

Afterwards, we can put Burton and/or Day on IR and fill out the roster.

According to what I was told a player just has to make the initial 53 to be IR eligible

From what I've read, he's a receiving TE with essentially zero blocking ability (in-line or in space). If we're just looking to fill Burton's role as a receiver, he'll probably bring some value in that respect.

Do the Eagles run same offense as Colts?

Similar enough that the concepts and terminology should pretty much be the same.

 

It definitely makes sense to bring in a guy you may need to contribute immediately that has familiarity with the offense.

Guess they liked him better than Hale Hentges

I was hopeful to see Hentges back. I thought he did very well in his chances last year in preseason. Maybe he didn’t want to come here?

MAC hasnt been disappointing he has performed well as a blocker and can make some catches. Last year he was just injured with a hand and still played cuz colts needed help with the TE blocking assignments and he toughed it out

Yeah,  not many first team All Pros are available on the waiver wire

Chaz Green was released.

Which means at least one more move is probably coming because they aren’t going into a game with just seven olinemen on the roster, especially with both starting tackles being banged up in camp.

No way.  And MAC isn't really disappointing, he's developed nicely and will have a shot to prove himself this year I think.

    • I think rivers has been okay for us but as expected nothing special. It's a tough decision to make for next season, and next season we face the whole NFC West and AFC East with Lawrence likely going to Jets and Fields likely going to Jags making the 'easy matchups' look a bit tougher. Either we go all or nothing with Eason or keep Rivers and probably be mediocre with a punchers chance of victory every time we play.
    • That truly was a terrible angle Willis took. Could've been held to just a bad 20 yard play on that one.
    • Where did I say that?   But,  as long as Ballard and Dodd have their team in place, I feel good about our chances to be highly competitive.   The only problems we’ve had have been when we’ve been without Andrew Luck, in 17 and 19.   When we’ve had Luck or Rivers we are a very competitive team.   Just look at some of the recent Super Bowl participants.  Only KC is really doing well.  The Pats are struggling.   So are the Rams and the Eagles.  Seattle has been hot and cold.   Same with SF.   My point is...   this game is really hard.  Staying at the top is hard.  Being elite year after year is hard.     But not only do you casually dismiss achievement, but you write off players as busts who have been mostly injured or haven’t been with the team long enough to know.  You’re jumping to conclusions, and there’s a good chance some of those conclusions could be wrong.     So yes, I like our future.  I like our GM and the front office he has.  I like his drafting and I mostly like his free agents.   As a fan, I’ll take our chances here....   I’m not predicting a Super Bowl, but I think we will have a good team moving forward.  
    • Yup, It was a pretty horrible day all around for the DBs. At least Willis had a PD and a QBH, which none of our other DBs did...    And even without Autry, I was pretty disappointed with the DE pass rush given they had a 3rd string LT.. The DL had zero sacks and QBHs...    Just bad...
    • Also Autry, Buckner, Bobby could all be back.
