A few recently released that might be worth a look at.


Recommended Posts

WR Antonio Callaway-Chief's: Troubled person, but a fantastic player. Had issues at Florida, went to the Browns and had some issues too. If his head is on right he's a 1st round talent.

TE Isaac Nauta- Green Bay- Former 5 star player at Georgia. Talented TE, just never caught on in the NFL.

LB Noah Spence - New Orleans- Good pass rushing LB. Looked like a beast coming out of college, then just faded.

WR John Franklin III- Tampa Bay- With all of Tampa's WR's someone had to get cut. This is a slash type of WR. Former QB who converted. Fast, very fast player running around a 4.3.

I think it will be really tough for the Colts to find a spot for outside FAs from cuts, this year.

 

We have built our depth well

 

I would however, say that after one preseason game, our depth at LT and RT is still lacking

 

The main backups were regularly getting pushed back into the backfield by 2nd stringers

 

If we get everyone healthy, we will be ok with starters, but I would not go into the season without adding at least 1 more backup LT

 

I was also disappointed a bit with Turay,

 

He was playing against a backup, and he was not getting pressure

 

That doesnt bode well, IMHO

 

I hope Dayo gets healthy quick

Seen the Texans just released LT Roderick Johnson whom I was high on at the end of  last season as a potential FA acquisition.  Still like to see the Colts pursue him on a cheap deal especially with big questions at LT and lack of production from last pre-season game/scrimmages to-date.

I agree with your assessment of our backup LT situation.  I just suggested a trade in another thread of Patmon to the Eagles for LT Andre Dillard.  He is supposedly on the block and I think he is probably better than any of our current backup tackles with more upside.  I think Ballard will have a chance to make few trades at final cutdown.  JMO.

Is Spence healthy? I know he's had injury issues the last 2 years

I know myself and a lot of members really looked for the Colts to grab Noah Spence during the draft. I haven't followed him since, though. Has he really been that bad?

It has. No games last year, 7 games in 2019. Only full season was his rookie year, 2016. Moot point now, Cincinnati just signed him.

QB Anthony Gordon

 

DB Will Parks

 

DE Taco Charlton

 

 

All 3 were released by the Chiefs.

I thought Charlton was going to be a player. He has all the intangibles. Maybe he is short on work ethic.

There is no room for him and would not cut Muhammad. He’s an awesome run stuffer.

Agreed! I wouldn’t bring him in just thought he’d be a good player coming out of college. I missed on him.

Absolutely no room for any WRs. And you won't find even minimally talented LTs available until after the cut down to 53. Plus, with Davenport's ascending play, I don't see the need any longer for a backup OT.  I expect the Colts to stay put with the 53 best players currently on their roster unless a really solid TE  or S prospect gets cut loose.

    • Let the best man play.. Glow can keep hes job, he just have to step up.
    • Perhaps it’s more an indicator of Reed’s solid play over Glow’s lack of production.  I don’t think Glow has been bad but it’s looking like Reed is playing better.  
    • I’ve always pictured Dayo as our DE with the occasional rotation with stewart . I don’t see Buckner getting kicked to the curb. Matter of fact, I think the future plan is a Dayo, Buckner,  Stewart(or a younger draftee ) and Paye. 
    • I like the analogy of a 17 round prize fight. For me, it’s not over until they’re eliminated mathematically or they’re close to that and have lost a lot of players, due to injury.    So, to your question, I would say absolutely not.
    • The turf has been historically awful there.  Don’t know if that’s fixed.   if it was just heavy rain and bad footing, that’s usually advantage passing game because defenders have to react.  They keep the balls fairly dry and today’s catching gloves are like electromagnets and QBs can wear gloves too.  Smaller handed QBs could have extra issues with grip though.   in heavy mud, the Run game is just a wallow fest.  Taylor’s style might help because he isnt dramatic with his cuts, but I could also see him being ineffective running laterally, he’s not great stopping and starting.  However, the home run ball is always a possibility with him especially when one cut could put the defender on skates.   45 mph winds essentially nullifies any passing game but the short game.  Again if you can get Taylor in space we could be money here but Fred is one of the best in coverage too.    the mud games usually come down to ball security and seemingly chance breaks Though.  I’d like to say I’m looking forward to it but I’m really not.  These games tend to be boring, limiting  these great athletes.  Makes em move around like a buncha old men.
