Well we all know Oline is a big need in the offseason. The only spot I am comfortable with is LT going in to the offseason. Right Tackle looks like the easiest spot to fill with Free Agency. Just curious who others would want to sign.

 

Personally, I'd probably go with Loadholt because of his run blocking. Vollmer and Smith are a little more well rounded but they don't get quite the push Loadholt does. Cherilus and Justice are better pass blockers, but I really couldn't care less about re-signing Justice, especially since he has gotten worse as the year has went on.

Resigning Justice as a backup if Ijalana does not workout and signing William Beatty (he is in a Man Blocking scheme right now with the Giants) OR Ricky Wagner in the 3rd or Chris Faulk or Alex Hurst if healthy

Beatty is high on my list too....

 

But there is one problem.   He's a left tackle.    And we may want him to be our right tackle.   Or, if he's willing to come as our right tackle,  he may still want to be PAID as a Left tackle.   They make considerably more.

 

And, if you say Beatty to left and Castonzo to the right side,  prepare for the same thing.   AC will want LT money, or he'll leave to get it elsewhere....

 

Sometimes these things get tricky....

Castonzo in my opinion is alright but is not our future at LT but maybe RT, Thats not to say Beatty is a future LT for us because I have not watched him enough to know what he is good at or is not good at and we did invest in Castonzo but I also have to think he was a huge investment in a Zone Blocking scheme and not Man. Im not saying move all these pieces we had in our Zone Scheme from last year out of here. Im just sayin right now we have quite a few O Linemen who were drafted into Zone Blocking schemes for a reason

I agree with BLOODontheTRACKS, if Vollmer Didn't have back issues he should win by a landslide. however, b/c he does have back issues i think it should be Loadholt. I think Justice should be retained as a backup and as for Andre Smith he has turned his career around in a contract year. meaning, Smith is playing great now for the $ that he cuold potentially make.

i like Louis Vasquez as the RG also. I think Vasquez & Loadholt on the right side would be great. I still wonder if Vollmer should be considered even with the back issues though...

Didn't know where else to put this news....

 

But Big Arrow DOWN for Jags OL Ebin Britton.

 

This weeks USA Today Sports Weekley says Britton has been bench -- for the 2nd time this season!    That's for performance, and not due to injury.

 

So,  unless Grigson has a major man crush on him, I'm afraid we're going to take a pass on him.   No pun intended.

 

At best, we sign him for dirt cheap to be a back-up, but otherwise.....     sorry.....

I would love to see Indianapolis go after Ryan Clady who is a free agent from Denver. However he turned down five years 50 million from them. The other tackle could be Jake along to look at who is a free agent out of Miami who is coming off an injury.

My worries would be with Sam Baker, and Sebastian Vollmer is they've had lower back issues which has sidelined each of them at different points early in their career. Maybe an individual who could play inside would be Andy Levitre. He's a guard out of Buffalo. Hopefully then comes back after two ACL injuries and can either play right or left guard. Also if you get Clady or long I'm sure Costanzo would switch to right tackle to make the team better.

It would be nice if Sampson can play more than two games in a row as well, I do realize the injury isn't something that he can necessarily control but just saying. I think one or two of these guys would add great depth to the roster in my opinion.

We need to overhaul our whole Oline besides AC and Satale(not long term solution).

 

If we can get 1 or maybe 2 of these guys I think it would be worth it. Then we can use our 1st pick on a OLB(hopefully Dion Jordan), or CB (if hes there Jon Banks) or NT (Jesse Williams if available).

 

  1. Ryan Clady
  2. Sebastian Vollmer
  3. Jake Long
  4. Brandon Albert

Thoughts?

if the dolphins don't sign jake long, he would be an UFA. What if the colts moved Castonzo to RT and signed Long to LT? that's the best tackle duo in the league. good luck getting to LUCK

With all the candidates, but especially Jake...   it depends on two things....

 

His health, and how much money he wants....    both could be big obstacles to overcome.

    • Meh, these guys make millions. If they aren't smart enough to take out long term care insurance with some of that money then it's on them. 
    • So many assumptions here, I don't know where to begin:       How does Steve Young know what Andrew is thinking?        There's no effort on the part of the Colts FO, Owner and/or coaching staff to improve the team around him.        There's no talent on this team besides Andrew.          Andrew can void his contract and just decide to leave.        He would be on a losing team for his career, if he stayed.         While we can all agree that the team around him has to improve, not only for the sake of his health but for him to have a successful career, the means to that improvement can come from a new influx of players and/ or coaches or from existing players and coaches getting better each week.     If you think about individual players and ask yourself if you are glad they are Colts, you can make the case that there is more to this team than Andrew.     As far as Ballard, I'm glad the Colts landed him. If the goal is to build a team around him, he is an important piece.      I want to see how this coaching staff does when the injured players return.        At very least, what is happening now is good for the team as a whole. Young players are getting reps and depth is being built. The defense is playing together and as a result familiarity and communication should improve.      If this team keeps improving, the wins will come. Andrew could return to a team that may be the best he has played with so far. I know these are assumptions on my part but to assume things won't change (one way or another) is a bigger assumption IMO.  
    • I guess if he really wanted to, he could pull a Carson Palmer and retire, then sign with a different team. I wish we had more positive stories to talk about. But negativity is what always sells and gets the most response. 
    • The Rams and 49ers scored more points last night than on any other Thursday night game ever. Goff seems to be headed in the right direction and the coach Sean McVay may know something. Great ending as well.
