Rivers to IR?
Report: Isaiah Wynn's toe injury not season-ending, considered week-to-week
IIRC he is already on IR.
Someone else would need to go to IR, traded or cut.
He was a healthy scratch right?
Cut or trade?
I agree, if Wynn is in fact day to day.
Rapoport's tweet said "considered week to week, I'M TOLD" and every news source has run with this as fact.
Ian has reputation for being a little quick and loose with his reporting. Some call him a liar, which I disagree. But adding "I'm told" seems a little fishy to me as to the closeness of the source.
Why add "I'm told" as a condition? Turf toe can be a lingering issue. Maybe it's the case, but I haven't seen anyone else verify Ian's tweet.
He's not a doctor. "I'm told" is appropriate.
Who is "he"? Ian or the source???
It's appropriate reporting for someone whose source isn't close enough that the reporter doesn't want to leave it definitive.
Benenoch - 25 year-0ld, 2016 5th round pick by Buccaneers, started 16 games in 2018 at RG, released Sept. 2019.
Is Tampa Bay's offensive line that good with adequate depth that they can justify waiving last year's starting right guard ?
What am I missing?
Ian, and it would be appropriate regardless of who the source was, up to and including the doctor or player.
You're missing that Tampa Bay is a bad organization, and bad organizations often misevaluate or poorly coach up their talent (part of why they're bad). Like when the Jets cut Danny Woodhead and kept Joe McKnight. Or Cleveland sending away Jason McCourty and Danny Shelton from their 0-16 team and they're integral parts of our team now (granted it took a while for Shelton to take hold).
Or Benenoch might just stink. That happens too. We'll find out.
That's bad for sure, but not nearly Earthwind Moreland-level dire. Those three -- including a 2nd-year player they deemed worth trading for -- are standard JAG journeymen with NFL starting experience. Moreland had been trying to find a place on an NFL roster for 5 years without ever registering stats of any kind.
If it were a doctor Ian would not have said I'm told. He just would have reported it.
Another player is likely more accurate and thus my comment.
Perhaps Dante has found an OG who can backup at center. Benenoch says that he has played some center. TB used him as their starting RT. We'll see.
NFL: Benenoch 'I Can Play All O-Line Positions'
You're guessing, and you're acting as if you know for certain. As I said, Ian's line would be appropriate, regardless of the source.
All three started games last year. Cunningham is a second year player and Benenouch is a fourth year player. Only Newhouse can really be considered a journeyman.
Seems very athletic, smart and well spoken. I can understand why he'd want to be coached by Scar after spending his first 3 years with TB. Compared to Cunningham and Newhouse, ,I'm better (on first impression) he'll end up being the best of the bunch.
As to who goes, I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't one of 3 OLmen recently signed. If its either Newhouse or Cunningham, it will be because the tape of the Miami game was even worse that we thought.
We'll see, but I favor carrying 10 OL's as long as both our OT's are injured, and until Dante can train up a couple of players. Ferentz is an easy cut, as soon as Dante is comfortable with someone as our backup center. As it is, Dante is holding tryouts, and cuts quickly when a player can't fit in to the 2019 team.
2018 players: Wynn, Thuney, Karras, Mason, Cannon, Ferentz
new players: Eluemunor, Cunningham, Newhouse, Benenoch
