Would be a nice fit in this defense esp with Milano’s hammy situation

Agreed - I like the player, versatile, you wonder what his issue is though as Arians drafted him but can’t seem to motivate or use him..,

Could definitely be a good fit. He's that tweener-type that McDermott likes, can play safety in addition to LB.

It's very expensive to fly players in from Tampa.

 

First you have  the outrageous airfare ticket prices, then there's the extra leg room charge, another $60  plus those damn luggage fees.

Oh yeah, well I would have signed him when he walked out of the building.

 

...which also qualifies as "immediately".

Roster moves that could free the spot for him include

 

Corey Thompson to IR (Depending on his Return Timetable)

Maurice Alexander - Released

Foster to IR (Depending on his INJ timetable)

Kroft to IR 

Perry - Re-Released

7 TSWs usually never agree, and not typically in a row.

 

 

 

Get'er done.

I'm sorry, I've checked all game film.

 

Who is Kroft, again?

 

EDIT:   Please. my apologies a second time.  I went back and looked at preseason game film, too.

A no longer needed UFA with Knox Sweeney and even Lee Smith's performance during first 5 weeks.

Good.  Glad to hear it.  Now please reassure m that we didn't sign him to a multi-year deal that paid him anything more than the veteran minimum and we will be all set.

Rather trade for Kuechly since we should be all in.

The 3-2 Panthers are trading Luke Kuechly?

Yeah, I know...however, in hindsight...definitely hindsight, wasn't this just a little bit of a silly signing?

 

Not really at the time they had NOTHING but Jason Croom at TE.  No way of knowing that their draft would being Knox and Sweeney, and then no way of knowing they would make Kroft Irrelevant in their First year.

Kroft would file a grievance and demand an injury settlement if we put him on IR at this point and try and force a release.  That'd be basically neutral in cap hit this year but carry a $1.6M cap hit in 2020.  At this point they're still better off giving him through the Bye to see if he can come back healthy and contribute.  If not then worry about releasing him then.  

 

If we wait until 2020 to release him hes just a $800K dead cap hit and we get $5.9M in cap relief.   That's a preferential way of doing it.

Slower since the ankle injury.  His speed pre-injury is what made him very effective as a coverage LB.

 

Bills would have to see if that's a chronic issue.

What have you guys seen from Sweeney that makes you ok writing off Kroft? 

 

Obviously it doesn't matter if he's never healthy, but if he can come back after the bye, or after the Miami game, I see no reasons provided by Sweeney to keep Kroft off the field.

Too slow to be an effective backup? I haven't seen him play in a while

What does Kroft do that makes you think he is Better than Sweeney?

Seems like a perfect fit to me.  
 

I feel like Milano will miss the Miami game minimum.  Hammys linger.

2017 looks pretty damn good to me. I watched him here in Cincy that year. He's legit.

I do like Sweeney (and especially Knox), but they need to catch the ball consistently when thrown to them.
