  1. I think there are some FA we could have acquired to speed up the process. And Ballard did seek to aquire said FA that they saw value in. However its not as simple as slinging dollars around. The player has to want to be on your team more than the others. And the motivation varies. No guarantee you will land the guy you want. Also you have to stick with where you valued the guy at. Some of these contracts are ridiculous and the teams who shelled them out wont see the expected ROI. Why would you do dumb stuff like that when your philosophy is "Build through quality drafting"? If the fit is there and you have mutual consent then you make the acquisition. If its not then you don't force yourself into a bad position financially just to say you signed a body. The priority is on stacking drafts. One thing I learned from Real Estate investing is its very easy to get accepted offers on bad deals. Just because you see somebody making a lot of noise it doesn't necessarily mean the benefit will be there. We are looking for good fits here that maximize value. Then we want to layer strong drafting on top of that. If you're doing it the right way sometimes the process requires you to be patient.
  2. Everything is about fits with Ballard. He knows this thing is going to take some time. Hes going to stick to his scouting and his valuations. If it works it works. If it doesn't then on to the next option. Pick up a guy here, pick up a guy there between now and the draft. You may not even be all that familiar with the guys name but you will immediately see the fit and how the guy can help. I can tell hes got a very detailed plan to fit different scenarios. I can tell he trusts how they are approaching this. Stay tuned!
  3. getting grant would be solid as far as a possession receiver is concerned. Should be much more affordable than the Landry deal people were clamoring for. Seems like a very solid player for that role.
  4. Pugh to Cards

    That deal seems bad to me and one im glad we missed. 5 yrs for a guard with a chronic back problem. Sounds like a quick ending like Cherilus. People dont care because they just want a name.
  5. Rashaan Melvin To Raiders [Merge]

    I think when its all said and done we will end up with EJ Gaines from Buffalo. I bet we are waiting on his price to go down
  6. Rashaan Melvin To Raiders

    I'm pretty sure he was prepared for it to happen.
  7. CB Phillip Gaines to visit Colts

    This team defensively right now has more talent on it than when Tony Dungy took over in the first one maybe two years. After CB gets done bringing in and signing his targets, plus a strong draft I believe you guys will feel better. Its not as far off as it looks.Gaines I'm sure wouldn't be the starter. Competition piece just like Mingo and Hunt were last year.
  8. CB Phillip Gaines to visit Colts

    How quickly we forget what most people thought of Melvin when he first joined the Colts! Go back and look at some of the comments. You know the guy that got relentlessly burnt by Tom Brady....
  9. Ryan Jensen Visiting Colts Today

    not sure where things are at
  10. CB Phillip Gaines to visit Colts

    or maybe you're putting the words banking In peoples mouths and being negative like always. Nobody's projecting him to start. Just stating what is likely the better scheme fit. I know its hard for you to do much more than be a dissenter.Can you tell us why hes here if he truly sucks so bad? Obviously they see a use for him somewhere as a reserve or something.
  11. CB Phillip Gaines to visit Colts

    bashaud breelands contract was voided out with Carolina due to a failed physical. Some kinda cut on his foot/leg.
  12. CB Phillip Gaines to visit Colts

    Something tells me there's something going on with EJ Gaines pricing because nobody has been calling him in for visits. Wouldn't surprise me if that's our issue on him.
  13. CB Phillip Gaines to visit Colts

    He could be good depth. Also the Chiefs play a lot of man coverage. We are a zone team. Gaines could be a better zone player.
  14. Eric Ebron to visit Colts Sunday

    Ebron, Swoope, and Doyle would be a solid trio. Would be interested to see Swoope and Ebron on the field together in some packages.
  15. From what I can see of the film Grant appears to be more in the mold of a reliable slot receiver. I'm cool with it if that's our intention. Dont think this will stop us from acquiring a #2 receiver.
