NFL cut downs(31 other teams)

Bears cut former Raiders 1st round OL Alex Leatherwood.  That's like, 2 teams in 3 years.

Wish I knew what was the matter with him.  Would be interesting to pick him up, a la Tony Mandarich, with no expectations or pressure other than depth, and see what we could make of him.

Unfortunately, picking him up also means we would be on the hook for his remaining rookie contract.  Which, at this point, is similar to JT's.  Um....  Ain't gonna happen.

Looking at OvertheCap.com, his cap hit this year is around $1.9M and $2.6M next year, but I'm also not great at contract stuff, so I'm not 100% on that. If thats correct, not a bad hit at all.

Abram Smith looked okay in limited action, but the release is understandable. Maybe, they are targeting some other RB to be in active roster or PS? 

We should have an additional 20 plus cuts today.

 

See what the Vikings have done so far. There is a list of everyone on the roster. Every time someone is cut, DN crosses the person's name off the list.

Yes, he was in another kicking competition. Poor kid 

 

Maybe some other team picks him up? Why not your Colts?

 

Are you a mini-Jets fan now that Rodgers is there? He looks so much happier as a Jet than he ever did as the QB of the Packers.

Actually yes I am, and I'm happy for him. Hopefully the Jets can protect him. They have the defense and the weapons on offense to make something special happen.

Why do the Titans need Folk?

Patriots are trading Nick Folk to Titans for 2025 seventh-round pick

Ha ha.. by the time that pick becomes a player on the field, he may be retired.

 

See, Patriots are using those last 2 round draft picks more than anyone else to get the players from other teams during this time.

@VikingsFanInChennai  Many Vikes wanted to retain Tristan Jackson. They said he had a great camp. He was waived instead of Reagor. I think we kept Reagor to trade him.

 

I see we kept Andre Carter. I expected him to be waived.

I predicted releasing RB McBride though. Surprises to me are LB Vilain and CB Joejuan, looks like this CB really lost what he had in college!

 

Vikings seem to have lot of DL, and have released few surprise cuts, but not sure how the ones on the roster would do though . Looks like we have lots of average players who may not actually be an impact unless Flores can do magic.

 

I thought Andre Carter and Ivan Pace were as advertised by the scouts but went undrafted.. it's really cool both of them managed to get into active roster. 

 

By the way, I compiled this for FF reference during draft, the ranking of top players for fantasy.. can you check if it looks ok, need some one prioritized to the top?

@VikingsFanInChennai I guess KAM thinks we have all the necessary pieces to win.

 

Darius Rush > Booth

 

I am glad we did not cut Nick Muse. He had a great camp.

Yeah.. let's see how they look when the real games start. I still think Booth can do better, let's see this year. If Rush is that good, Colts wouldn't have tried to sneak him through waivers but they have had many surprise cuts than I thought.

 

I thought we should've given chance this year to Reagor, he was at least working his rear off all off-season and did well in preseason. I understand keeping Nailor for special teams but after that I'd have kept Reagor in the depth chart. Vikings, like Colts, are valuing TE position more, and with the contracts given to TJ Hockensen and Oliver, I hope they at least utilize them to the max.

 

I'm still worried about running game, I think only actual games give us the real story and until then not much use in worrying about that now, just like how defense is gonna do. Lots of unanswered questions for a 13-win team.

 

Does contract given to tj Hockensen mean that we wouldn't re-sign Kirk? We will need to pay JJ next, so surely there won't be cap space for an elite QB money unless Kirk wants to play like Brady did, the idea which he's shown so far that he'd not be interested to entertain.

Yes, surprised Muse got a place in that TE Room even though he fully deserves it, I just think he'd not be used much in regular season outside special teams this year. Maybe, he can develop his pass protection skills in the meantime.

    • One thing I have never done is meet Peyton Manning. I have been to around 50 home games during my Fandom from 1987-2013 regarding going to games. I met Jim Harbaugh and got his autograph when I went to the Chargers game in 1996. He chatted with me for around 2 or 3 minutes. Called me Bud over and over and was so nice and he kept smiling at my mom  . I was only 25 then. Just going to the Masters alone had to be a treat but talking to Peyton had to be the cherry on top. Great stuff man.
    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz.
