    something had to have happened internally for them to cut bless.  the answers JD and Saleh have given as to why he was cut don't add up to me.  they want to go with the guys they drafted?  they want to go with youth? it doesn't make sense.

    Why did something have to of happened internally?   We’re talking about Bless Austin…Lol.   What exactly doesn’t  make sense?

    I cant remember a bigger game that I think is so even matched to open a season, maybe ever, pretty exciting way to get the season started.

    I will be in the Bahamas, at Atlantis, looking forward to placing some bets and watching them live in the Casino! 

    I wish this game was being played on a campus and not a neutral site, the atmosphere would be even better.  These games are so tough as season openers because you don’t really know what you are going to get with all these young kids. 

    Clemson has a bunch of questions going into this one, they need to replace the leadership from last season, mainly Trevor and Etienne.   They also need to show that they can run the ball.  They were terrible at rushing the ball last year, if that doesn’t improve it could be a long night for the Tigers.

    Gotta be something else in the works at TE.  Maybe we re-sign Griffn after placing someone on IR.  Also would seem to be pretty obvious that Yeboah will be back on PS.

    Or there is a deal in the works.

    Griffin is a vested veteran correct?

    Wild that nothing has happened at TE. Nice to add an edge rusher - seemed like KC fans were disappointed Ward didn't make the 53. Good to add linebacker depth too. Also always odd when former Jets get claimed - usually the back end of the roster is so bad teams have no interest.

    I just don’t think there was a TE out there worthy of a roster spot right now.  My guess is that we should a couple on the practice squad shortly.

    That is ******* ridiculous.  You have the choice of like 60 more players.  You don't think that ups your odds of getting the guy you like?  I get that having the extra pick is nice.  You can use them in trades, like this one.  Thing is, how many of these guys do you actually want in camp? You can't keep having 12 player draft classes and allow space for them to develop.

    Agreed.  It’s also more valuable draft capital if you want to trade up during the draft.

    You know what team needs a talented athlete at TE really badly?

    The New York Jets.  

    And by the way, Herndon really isn't that talented.  He wasn't that good in 2018, and when judging him on athletic ability only he's actually pretty well below average at the TE position compared to his NFL peers.  Just look at his scores when he was coming out of Miami:




    Mike Maccagnan rarely drafted elite athletes so this should be no surprise.

    Herndon sucks.

    That’s a bit misleading.  While not a freakish athlete, Herndon is more athletic than those numbers show.   Remember, he was rehabbing a knee injury during the Pre draft process and wasn’t able to participate in all of the drills.  

    That said, he’s had his chance here.   What really got him traded was his inability to block in this scheme and he isn’t nearly a good enough receiving threat to ignore the blocking deficiencies.

    I believe that teams have until 4:00 to put in a waiver claim.  Like the 4:00 cutdown time yesterday, it is a hard deadline for NFL teams.  But the NFL drips the information out slowly.  We can expect the same thing to happen today.  While all team business will be done by 4:00, it will still be a few hours before we hear about it. 

    Trades are a completely different story.  All of us expect a big trade sometime today.  AVT missed the entire preseason and Feeney under-performed.   If AVT has a setback, then Feeney and GVR are the starters.  That is not going to cut it folks.  We need to acquire a veteran lineman and we are going to have to pay.  It is the price of the McDermott injury. 



    I’m pretty sure claims need to submitted by noon today.  Teams will start being notified at 1pm of the players they have been awarded.  Then corresponding moves will be made to accommodate those roster spots.  After that any player that cleared waivers can be signed to the practice squad.
