Roster Moves/Workouts


Recommended Posts

  • Shive changed the title to Roster Moves/Workouts

All of this is pretty meh....

 

Jefferson doesn't make a lot of sense to me, neither does Carter. Wonder if there's an injury or covid thingy going on we don't know about.

 

On Carter, below from the Cowboy's site

 

COLLEGE:

Had 66 tackles with 27 for losses, 12.0 sacks - tied for third in JMU single-season history - one forced fumble, 13 hurries and a pass breakup while starting all 16 games as a consensus first-team All-American senior.

Named first-team All-CAA as a junior after starting all 13 games and posted 58 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and a quarterback hurry.

Transferred to JMU as a sophomore and played in all 15 games to tally 28 tackles, eight for loss, 4.0 sacks, three pass breakups and four quarterback hurries.

Spent two seasons at Rutgers and appeared in five games in 2016, making two tackles, including a half tackle for loss and a half sack.

Redshirted as a true freshman in 2015.

 

PERSONAL:

Three-star recruit and top-30 player at Long Reach High School in Baltimore, Md., where he was a team captain who played defensive end and tight end.

First-team All-Howard County tight end as a senior and first-team defensive end as a junior.

Captain at the Maryland Crab Bowl, featuring most talented seniors from Maryland and was a member of the Baltimore Touchdown Club Super 22 Team as a junior.

Multi-sport athlete who also threw shot put for track & field and played basketball at Long Reach.

Majored in public policy and administration at James Madison.

So he is more of a DT. That makes even less sense. 

He's a tweener. But DT would make more sense than DE to be honest. We're a bit thin at 3T with Autry now starting at DE. You only have Buckner and Lewis at 3T. I don't know if he's any better than Kline though to jump to straight to the active roster.

We do have a DT that I bet gets cut. Can remember how to spell his name but he has been a healthy scratch.

Just a thought but when we signed Ankou didnt he have to be on the roster through 3 games, maybe Carter is taking his spot on the D Line....shot in the dark. 

This is the guy I was thinking of. I bet he gets cut.

He's a NT, not 3T, so very unrelated. He was going to be gone as soon as Day came back anyway.

Jefferson is a decent safety he would be a good depth for the defense we need it anyway

I like it. Never can have to much.

 

***1. We have 2-3 roster spots open. Im sure 1 of the 3(Burton,Ya-Sin, Day), wont be playing come Sunday either. Ya-Sin already holds a roster spot, so that leaves 2 guys for 3 spots open.

 

2. We grab him now keep him for 3 weeks then try and get him back to our practice squad. When Turay hopefully gets back.

 

***assuming we had 3 roster spots open, as I didnt recall filling our 2 IR hits last week. Then 1 more from Pittman. ****

 

When they didnt bring anyone in, I had a feeling they were going to try and snatch some practice squad guy, someone on the protected list.

 

Carter was protected all 3 weeks.

https://www.dallascowboys.com/news/updates-september-2020

 

The whole thing is a little weird though.. The verbiage in the tweet didnt make it sound like a tradition practice squad signing.(terminated)

 

Then the link above says he was released...?

 

"What is surprising is the way the practice squad opening came about. Rookie defensive end Ron'Dell Carter was released after being protected on the team's practice squad for the first three weeks of the season.

Carter was one of the biggest undrafted free agents in the Cowboys' 2020 draft class. They guaranteed him $145,000 to sign with them, topping offers from dozens of other teams. With the amount of veteran depth on the Cowboys' defensive line, reps were hard for him to come by during training camp. Carter is expected to sign with the Indianapolis Colts."

 

Maybe he doesn't even have to go to main 53? Pretty sure he is anyway.

 

https://www.dallasnews.com/sports/cowboys/2020/09/29/cowboys-lose-coveted-dt-prospect-rondell-carter-to-colts/

 

That article speaks very highly of him.

 

I had saw his name as I was looking over protected practice squad players over first few weeks. So Im lookimg forward to seeing what hes got.

   Or if he shows something we keep him on the 53

Most definitely.

 

Have a good feeling about him. Dont even know why, but it's not my homerism... Lol

 

Going to check some things out on him.

Ron'Dell Carter is a highly coveted rookie according to the Bring the Juice Podcast. So I think we got someone very impressive here. I'll let you guys know if there's a podcast about him later on.

I'd change that to highly coveted UDFA :-)

Total project, but yes, very interesting. 

I remember a bit about him now from the draft. I need to do some more digging. I know small school, etc., but that's all I can recall.

Word around Dallas is that Carter is an absolute beast and they were very disappointed to see him go.

 

Had the highest guarantee of $145k.  I'm extremely excited about this acquisition.

Just shows me that Ballard looks to increase talent where ever he can find it. 

IMO it's a smart move.

I love that 24 teams wanted him before he joined the Cowboys originally, that means he was in high demand and usually that many FO's won't all be wrong. Him joining us now just shows we are a quality organization. A majority of bottom-feeder teams don't have a chance at guys like this. Glad we have Ballard and Reich to attract guys like this here.

Really happy about this signing. He didn't get national exposure due to the corona, and that probably kept him from being drafted since he was also from a small school. To get a guy like this for free that was in such high demand is a coup for Ballard right now, and although he went undrafted, there's a chance he could contribute this year.

    • Agreed. arm strength doesn’t change the philosophy of an offense. It just opens the playbook up more and makes a defense honor the arm strength a little more. Chiefs offense uses a lot of play designs to create big plays by getting guys in space. Mahomes arm gets the ball there and allows guys like Hill, Hardman and Kelse to make plays in open space. 
    • Indeed, buuuuut ...   Matthew Stafford 2020 stat line: 528   339   4,084   7.7  64.2%  26  10   96.3   For being on a crap team, once again he is really impressive.  As I said in an earlier post, if you are to believe what one of the league’s best QBs has to say about Stafford’s talent level, Stafford just might be a good “team” away from having his game elevated to the “elite” status and recognition you speak of.  Hence, I will go with the idea that he is an elite talent that’s been wallowing away in the obscurity of an atrocious franchise.    To me, he is DEFINITELY worth giving up the Colts’s first round pick for.   Frank Reich on Stafford from this past season (as reported by 1075TheFan.com) ...    “He has elite arm talent,” Reich said of Stafford back in November, when the Colts were preparing to face the Lions. “He’s one of those handful of guys, that you say, ‘There’s guys that have a really good arm and then there’s guys that have elite arm strength and arm talent.’ He’s one of those guys. He’s fun to watch. He makes big plays.”   As for this thought that the Colts should give up a current player like Darius Leonard, imho, absolutely not!  You don’t gut one aspect of your team to add at another.   That’s just spinning wheels.  You want to ADD to the existing so as to be able to take the next step.  Giving up a 1sr rounder to add a ready to go QB that possesses elite talent, that would be as easy a trade to make as the Buckner trade was last year.  
    • Man, bitter much?   How come? Bills own the AFCE now. Be happy.
    • Not that this means anything, but Rodgers is good friends with Pat McAfee & AJ Hawk of whom both are in Indy for pat's show.    Never say never.    I still think we get Stafford tho.
    • I would take Stafford without hesitation, but we also need a lt. Stafford would come here and win 12 games with this roster. Playoffs, probably a one and done that happens way to often here with the Colts. But atleast we would win and be optimistic instead of "knowing" we were going nowhere such as the 2019 season.
