What young FS do we have? Butler is a solid ball-hawking safety who still has a year or two of prime. That being said if he walks, I'd like to see a true FS in the first 3 rounds. TJ Green is not a true FS, he'd be better used as a match up nickel corner. Put him on athletic TEs or big WRs

I'm sure we'd draft one. May sign one, who knows? 

 

But I do know there's a 99.9% chance Butler will not have a horseshoe on his helmet next season based off of what Ballard has said & done thusfar

Those odds are a bit absurd. The "getting younger & faster" movement doesn't exclude us from resigning Butler. He's not that old and was fantastic at safety last year when he played it.

 

Blindly going with that approach is silly. You don't pass up veteran leadership, in a position of need, especially when it's someone that knows your system and can still play at a high level. You also can't have complete roster turnover of your vets, because those are the guys you lean on to help teach the younger guys.

 

If he agrees to a reasonable deal, there's no reason he's not back.

How do you possibly think Clayton is a FS? He's a box safety not a deep center field safety.

In which way was he the best cover safety on our team?

 

You mean he was better than Adams and Butler?

 

Do you have anything that supports this?

Idk about the best but he's really good. That's not even his strength he plays the run a lot better. I love Clayton if he can stay healthy he'll be one of the best SS in the league

      I've gotten a lot of Darius Butler questions. My response: don't close the door on him returning to the #Colts just yet.

      That's about as far as I can go right now. Anything more would be speculation. #Colts

Holder is a credible source to me.

I'd like to see Butler on our team again very much, but this is on 2 parties.

  • Stephen Holder mentions that the Colts haven’t closed the door on possibly bringing back free agent DB Darius Butler. However, Holder can’t say for sure a return to Indianapolis is a serious option.

Besides the re-signing of Doyle that is the best thing I've heard or has happened this off-season for the Colts. Play the man at FS and occasionally at slot corner if needed until green is ready to take the ropes. He's a fighter,  indy has never gave him more than a 2 year deal but he always seems to make it on back on our squad. The sad thing is when you have 50 million to spend and Butler is one of the best players signed. Oh well, we'll see what Ballard has done for the Colts after the draft. Sorry, rant over, moral of the story I'm happy to have Butler back.

Nice. Unless we bring in another safety, or Green shows much improvement, Butler should be starting next to Geathers, IMO.

Turns 31 tomorrow, was 99.9% sure he wasn't coming back. Ballard lied to us. FIRE HIM! :Nuke:

I guess it's a nice re-sign though, hope we draft another safety this year just in case Project Green doesn't work out

Good to see him back and he's switching to safety which should help. Curious what we're doing with our corner spots now. Draft is lacking in that department.
