McKinnie.

Any chance he returns for the Colts next season and makes an impact? Must admit I sort of forgot about the guy since we lost him in the preseason..

Good question. Not sure about this with Chapman, possibly the draft & other free agents. He was a BIG body though and might be a good fit. Unfortunately we really didn't get to see that much of him though he did make a few good plays.

I don't think making an inpact is likely. He's a rotational type player.

Mckinney is a rotational NT just like the rest of our NT's but when Mckinney was called upon he did not play that well, he played on skates alot and Mooke clearly was the better looked to be the better option as a 0 Technique NT (Mookie looks to struggle more at the 1 Technique). If it came down to Mckinney or Mookie, I'd resign Mookie, I think Mookie will be eventually (if Chapman gets healthy) a backup to Chapman but not a bad #2 option at all

He is a load when you run right at him, but he has a hard time reaching the runner after he sheds. I wonder what his broad jump was at the combine.

I say keep him and use him in the rotation. Can't be any worse than what we have already.

Plus with Chapman next year, that could be a decent combo.

McKinney hasn't played in a year, Chapman has never played pro ball. That's two huge unknowns. At least Mookie is playing every game. I don't know if its just wishful thinking, but I think he's played pretty well as of late.

This is a position that really needs to be improved next year. I hope there are some good FAs available.

He's under contract for next season, cap hit approximately $1.15m. I'm pretty sure we'll keep him on the roster, and he has a good chance to be ready for camp.

Let's not just count out Martin I think he does a very good job on running down lol

I'd be very surprised if Tevaseu is back next year.

I might keep Tevasue over Mckinney quite honestly if it came down to that but it wont likely, But I'd rather release Mckinney and Tevasue and draft Kwame Geathers in the 5th if he is still around at this point. oh well not up to me

You get a 90 man camp roster, so that's probably not going to be necessary. As for Tevaseu, he's a restricted free agent after this season. I'm not 100% certain how the RFA tenders work anymore, but I would assume that any tender we place on him would be fairly routine***. It wouldn't surprise me if he's back in camp, along with McKinney (also under contract for next season), along with a few other new bodies.

I would actually expect to see Antonio Johnson gone more than anyone else. He's a free agent next year, and I don't think we'd be offering him anything substantial to stay.

*** The "right of first refusal" qualifying offer is $1.2m. That's the lowest level tender there is. I doubt we'd go that far to keep Tevaseu. He'll likely be an unrestricted free agent.

Yeah I recently looked at Spotrac I new who was a UFA, I was more or less just giving my opinion as to who I thought played best at NT (even though we dont have much to go by in Mckinney's case because of injury). Like you say because of the simple fact that Johnson is a UFA he could be let go and perhap pick 1 up in FA or the draft(hopefully late if we do). I honestly would not be surprised if we didn't do anything with our NT's seeing as how we will hopefully have 4 if Chapman is healthy, Still I have to wonder with Mckinney's ACL tear and hm being 345lbs or with Chapmans left knee and him being 316lbs, They are proffesionals so probably not alot to be worried about but just a thought I had.

I think Chapman ought to be ready to go. His operation will be a year and seven months past by the time camp opens next year. He's had extensive rehab, therapy, etc. I would expect him to be a full strength by next season.

McKinney will be behind him a bit, but still will be close to a year beyond surgery by the time camp starts.

      Hey Andrew I saw your ranking in the top 100 players of last year.... We together are about to take the 9 off the front of that number. And make us both top 10 next year. PEOPLE BETTER RECOGNIZE!!!!! 
    • Something no one is talking about
      Again tell me where his tape is?
    • Something no one is talking about
      I'll give you the same quote I gave the other guy:     “We’ve been interested in Patrick since early in free agency and we’re glad it finally came together,” said Colts general manager Ryan Grigson, per Colts.com::   We have some strong ties on our coaching staff with him so that familiarity is always a plus. He is a versatile, experienced and steady corner that gives us immediate help opposite Vontae [Davis]. He was a fit on a number of levels in regards to overall skill, but also adds some strong intangibles. We’re happy with this addition to our team.     Notice the IMMEDIATE help opposite Vontae part.  You don't use that type of language if you view him as something other than a starter.  If they didn't view him as the guy then they would start talking about competition like they always do.
    • Something no one is talking about
      You've barely even seen Smith play and you concocted that how?     I like Smith, but he spent all of training camp being burnt so how you think he already projects better to the outside than Robinson I'm waiting on that answer.  They are both the same exact height.  Actually I think Robinson may be taller.   Again my argument is not whether I think he is an inside or an outside guy.  My argument is they absolutely did not bring him here with the main intention of getting a nickel corner out of the deal.    You don't get rid of Toler and replace him with a guy you think is purely limited to being a nickel corner.   It's very obvious from their words they intend for him to play outside and they believe he can play outside.  I didn't gather one shred of evidence from Grigson or Pagano that says "We Brought Pat Here To Play Nickel Corner For Us".  No they bought him here to replace Toler.
    • Something no one is talking about
      And by the way what tape are you watching because there ain't much tape on Patrick Robinson on the net to be honest. It's restricted to old highlight films from the Saints. That's about it.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
