I would've thought the same thing. But either Eberflus sees something he can work with, or we are so thin at LB, that they can't afford to release him right now.

They added three LBs in the draft that fit their mold (Leonard, Adams, Franklin), and two in free agency (Goode, Moore). Walker might work in their system, so that's six LBs, and I wouldn't be surprised if that's all they keep. They're going to be thin at the position this year, because the Colts lacked athletes at the LB position despite running a 34 defense. This is one of the many reasons I think the 2019 draft will be very front 7 focused for the Colts.

Morrison's only chance of making this team is at SAM, and even that's iffy.
Morrison not making the team would make me happy.

Every evaluation you have is based on 40 times

Every evaluation I have is based on game tape. Measurables can influence those opinions, but it would be stupid to say, for example, that Malik Jefferson is a better LB than Leighton Vander Esch.

It would also be stupid to say that Pagano is a good coach, but...

Not sure why anyone would want a player to be cut without seeing what happens with real coaches schemes and player development.

We were screwed for the last 6 yrs. some of these guys including Morrison and Green may end up as pretty good players.

Green actually has the raw skills that may be in the right scheme might be good.

Morrison is just too slow and plus thereís been enough stories where he seems like a bit of a douche.

That said, to your point, his skills actually might translate to an ST role, so if thatís the case then Iím fine with him making the team. My point was that even with great coaches I donít see a guy whoís literally just too slow ever succeeding in the NFL at a LB spot, regardless of scheme.
