If a team claims a player off waivers, how long do they have to keep him?


 I assume they always have to keep the roster at 53.  So if the Jags claim 10 guys, they get them all since they have first choice.   But they have to release 10.

It has its own thread

Yeah just saw that, people were talking about not having OT depth in this one so figured I would pass the information if they hadn't seen it yet

I don't think they could do it without there really being a contact.  But hopefully it works out for the best.

 

The problem is that they can't practice.

Agreed. I can't see using the Covid designation as a roster management tool when it means 3 starters have to miss VERY needed practice to make that happen. I think it's just very convenient timing.

IIRC, it was a coach or staffer that they had contact with... 

Missing a week of practice really won't impact Pascal or Kelly IMO. Kelly was healing already, and this gives him an extra few days. Same with Wentz.

 

So long as their negative, and back next week, it might be a positive.

I don't think Frank would be OK with it in the first place.

Funny, I mentioned that yesterday and a bunch of people "corrected" me saying you can't stash people on the COVID list. I called it genious on Ballards part. So that covers TY, Ehrlinger and Dayo to put them on IR and return while keeping the three guys that will actually replace them on the roster.....

I figured Sean Davis wasnt going to make it. They like Chachere better.

Yeah, this was a hard one for me when I wrote down names I didn’t think would make it. I stopped counting missed tackles for Shawn Davis at 7 against Detroit. Neither Davis made my cut because both Tel and Chachere can play safety.

Dayo likely just flips to reserve PUP (6 weeks).

No need to use a spot for him now.

SE needs to go to the PS. Don't see any teams claiming him.

The chimes of doom over at Lucas Oil are getting louder and louder.

 

:coltslogo:

They are waiting to see if any more players will go on COVID list. We might not have to cut anyone else if enough players get COVID :dunno:

    • If we win out (11 – 6), we still need help: Titans lose 3 games (we win division) or three of the following happen (we are a wild-card): 1. Bills lose 2 games or NE loses 1 other game. 2. Ravens lose 4 games or Bengals lose 3 games. 3. Raiders lose another game 4. Chargers lose 2 games 5. Broncos lose 2 games.      
    • I'm still trying to figure out the story about AB and the girlfriend in the story!
    • but the fact they still ran it 30 times shows they maintained balance throughout the game, which is all we've been asking frank to do.  they didn't go almost a quarter and a half without a rushing attempt.  they kept the bucs defense honest and prevented their pass rush from just pinning their ears back and going after the QB.   and the 30 rushing attempts did more to wear down the Bucs Defense than if they'd gone all out pass
    • that's a really cherry picked, "but what if..." lol.  quite a reach to try to keep defending your position.   I mean...agree to disgree I guess but anyone who's watched even a decent amount of football should know that going all out pass, no rushing at all, makes the team more susceptible to sacks and turnovers.  
    • Our defense hasn’t been great this year but football is symbiotic. The offense, defense, and special teams all have to compliment each other.  Last game the offense & special teams kept turning the ball over.  Sure the defense has to get some stops after those turnovers but the other 2 phases also have to stop turning it over.  I also remember our D stopping Brady 3 & out when we were down 4 to keep us in the game.  Then muffed punt.  Then they still went right back out and held the Bucs to 3 on a short field when a TD would’ve probably ended the game.  They gave our offense another chance to get their shot together. And they finally did by giving the ball to our MVP.     And remember the offense’s job is to score points not just to get yards (yes all the yards from those however many straight 2nd half passes were irrelevant because we never scored on those drives).  Only turnovers and a punt.  Seems like people are quick to make excuses and give passes to our HC, QB, and offense and lump all the blame on the defense.  We can all agree that with the injuries to our secondary, our offense is our better unit this year.  I expect more out of them.  From what I’ve seen, our O’s lack of execution & play calling have cost us more games than our defense this year.  Our margin for error is too thin for our best unit (Offense) to not carry the team most games.  That’s why all 3 phases have to be complimentary.     Our identity is a team with a dominant rushing attack, clutch QB play, and an opportunistic defense that creates turnovers.  We stick to that formula and we’re a playoff team that no one wants to face.  We stray from it and we’re a mediocre team that finds more ways to lose against our tougher competition than to win.
