Nothing develops a QB better than releasing a guy that he likes.

You ask a big flippen homer her opinion?   I'm afraid to say much, but I'm excited he has a chance.   I love Tay, I've mentioned before, he's undersized but a very hard worker, a football player

There's GOT to be more to this story. Seems like they had so many other options.

This has to be to bring someone on from FA or from PS.

OR...a trade is coming?

Bowles did say that they had a big move to make but they were waiting to see how the WR injuries panned out this week.

this must be it. Did not expect this though.

Maybe both.  You can't bring a FA in today and expect him to contriubte much tomorrow.  So maybe they bring up Burnett for tomorrow and then add either Matthews or Coleman on Monday.  Raiders are also rumored to be shopping Cooper.

Seems like a shortsighted move. I'd guess it's literally a roster spot situation where we're so banged up at WR we need bodies but he's an athlete and has made some plays for us. I'd have to imagine there are other depth guys we could cut that would be less attractive to other teams.

I don't think there is much evidence that Pryor was a target Darnold trusts.  Quite a bit of evidence that indicates the opposite I think.

They probably have an agreement with Pryor. They are too banged up to carry all these injured players. He is not hurt enough to be put on IR but they need healthy bodies at WR. Look for Burnett to be added to active roster.

Crap, I like the kid....saw him at the Coliseum his first start at QB for tOSU, vs arguably the greatest defense in the PC era.  Kid didn't flinch, was composed and played tough.  He was a true freshman, have to respect him for that, even though he is playing a different position.

Don't like the cut but don't know enough behind the scenes to judge.  Pryor is that big, athletic red zone target that every team needs.  I guess we can use Herndon or another of the 40 TEs we have but I was warming up to Pryor a lot.  I don't think the Pats grab him because they already have Gordon.  However, I think there will be interest in him once he's medically cleared.  I can't believe there wasn't another way to clear a roster spot if we had any intention of bringing him back so I'm doubtful that happens.

 

Me too. He seemed to be developing some decent chemistry with Sam.

That's not true at all.  He's made some throws to Pryor where Pryor had to make some plays on the ball.

Anyway, this seems like a stupid move.

is there cap relief if he is signed by another team?  strange move to be simple, something is going to follow 

I would think that cap relief was not a concern. Who knows?

I want Cooper BAD! I think he can play and just needs a new situation. He was a pro bowler in his first two years. 

That doesn’t happen by luck. He’s so smooth running routes and Darnold needs that because he throws to his WR’s with a lot of trust that they will be in a certain spot on time.
