Avery is faster(Barely), He ran a 4.27 40 compared to Wallace 4.33

Yeah, but also factor in that Mike Wallace is a lot better than Donnie Avery.

Dudes, we gotta keep Avery. He played with so much pressure on his career this year and a contract will calm him down and let him focus on his playmaking abilities, he showed flashes and hes only going to get better with some rythme in his life instead of moving around the country on one year contracts. he's paid his dues and he deserves some love from us. We HAVE to re-sign MOALA!! and it would be a feel good story if we give Butler a home. seriously, he deserves it. like Avery, he's paid his dues to be here. In the nickle and dime, he has a cunning knack for figuring out the Quarterback and hes only going to get better knowing he can call Lucas Oil his home. Seriously,most of the keys to our success came from guys on one year contracts and they played with so much pressure all year and as a fan, im DAMN happy to be 11-5 and charging full speed into the playoffs! Give these boys a home and they will give us the best years of their careers and be proud of it too.

Free Agentcy: Would love levitre gholston kruger and cary williams, but we would not need to get two tackles.

Draft: Would love to get a elite pass rusherlike mingo, but i think Gaurd is a larger concern (warmack, jones) and get a ok rusher in 3-4 rounds. Also WE DO NOT NEED A RUNNING BACK!! But apart from that great list

Mike Wallace may be a lot better than Avery,   but I don't think he's worth 5-6 times what Avery is.

 

Wallace will want $50 Mill over 5 years.     Avery will likely re-sign for $2 Mill a year for 3-4 years.     Huge difference.

 

I don't think Wallace is worth close to that.     I'd be perfectly happy to keep Avery and pair him with TYH and Brazill to go with Wayne and one other WR.    Combine those WR's with the expected improved play from our TE's,  and we should be fine at the receiver spot.

I've gone off the idea of signing Wallace in recent weeks. But I don't want Avery back either.

I agree that if we could land either Albert or Vollmer we would be good at the tackle position with Constonza on the other side but I wanted us to go after both and see what we could land.  I'm a little concerned that Mingo would even be available at the back half of the first round and I do think we'll have a better shot at Warmack.  

 

We've got to spend the latter two picks on the defense though, specifically with run defense.  We are fourth worst in the league in run defense.  We need to do something about our NT, DT, or ILB positions.

As previously stated above i believe one tackle will do, and we dont need another running back, just give donald brown and vick ballard a good oline and they will look great. We should get an offensive lineman early

    • The answer is yes and no. We do have the cap to absorb the hit, but it comes at a serious cost. Now bear with me, as I am not exactly Superman when it comes to this kind of stuff, but I like to think I have a decent grasp on it. I am sure (and I hope) someone will correct me if I have messed something up.   We have ~70M in cap for next year (~50M after Lucks hypothetical cap hit), but we also have 31 players with contracts expiring. While we probably wont resign most of them, they still have to be replaced for the most part (id say 25 players would need to be brought in at a minimum). Looking at their current cap hits, they account for ~35M of our cap this year. A handful of those players are also under their current market value, and if you take into account the rising salary cap/ extra cost of additional 1st round draft picks (3.5-5m per top 10 pick), there is no way we can replace those players at the same cost. Even if we got the same number of players of the same skill level for 40M (which would take some serious work by Ballard), we have upgraded -1 positions (as we have no franchise QB) and are sitting with ~10M in cap. Not going to make major improvements with 10M. We would only be able to rely on our draft class to improve the team and replace Luck, which puts us behind the ball for 2018.   That is not even mentioning the ridiculously small window we would have to actually make that trade with Luck. We cant trade Luck until the 1st day of the new league year (in March), and he has a roster bonus that is guaranteed as of the 5th day of the league year. That would add another 3M to his cap hit. That gives other teams leverage as we are the ones to lose out by waiting for them to up their bid, which would lead to us either losing another 3M in cap or possibly taking a lower offer for Luck, which is already going to be lower than usual due to the long term outlook of his injury not being entirely clear.   Hopefully that clarifies things a bit. If needed I can probably go into it a little deeper or take a swing at anything you need clarification on.
    •   Exactly what I was thinking.  If there is a game-changing talent at either of those positions we need to make sure we take them.     I would be very reluctant to trade to Jacksonville for a very good QB.  The way their team are trending that could mean they dominate this division for years.
    • I wonder if there are two more different personality types in the world of sport than Tiger and Andrew!
    •   It must be some size of tree for us to have been chopping it for this many years and the thing still hasn't fallen!    Ol' Chuck needs to hit the gym.
    • If we are as high as you predict (which I don't think we would be) I would say need to look for an elite pass rusher.  Those are in high demand where you can pick up a solid O-lineman or ILB in the 2nd round or later.    What is interesting to consider is whether we can get another first rounder (maybe even more?) from a potential trade of Brissett based on how well he has played and us having Andrew back.
