Colts Sign Jabaal Sheard (Merged)

155 posts in this topic

This team has 7 draft picks in the first 5 rounds, and he still may not be done with free agency.  I definitely like what Ballard is doing thus far.

Been a good day so far. Still many holes to fill but at least we can go into the season with a better edge group than last year. Time to turn attention to that DL.

This guy seems like a more expensive version of Walden, except a few years younger.

Sheard had 21 QB hurries last year, good for 2nd on the Pats. That with being benched 1 game, and (presumably) a scheme fit issue.

 

So that's pretty good.

I am glad you brought that up!  7 picks in the first 5 rounds and only a little over 24 hours into Free Agency....I am excited.

I wonder if the three signings at OLB and the release of Robinson mean that CB is now priority number 1 in the draft. CB and ILB still very very bare.

Sheard, Simon, and Mingo aren't the kind of players you alter your draft decisions for.

I can remember how the Falcons couldn't block Sheard in Super Bowl

He's gotten players off of the two best defenses in the league. Pats and Texans

Yeah I agree. I like these signings thus far, but in no way should this stop them from getting any top notch pass rushers in the draft if the value adds up.

Ballard is doing exactly what he said.  He will bring in 3-4 really good players from the draft to build around and his free agents will compliment the team.   He is thinking locker room, too. That's exactly what his free agents look like.  He will still look for pass rusher, CB, etc...in the draft, I'm sure.

Glad we are creating some competition in the line backing corps.  That unit continues to need work in my opinion because we are still lacking a bonafide top notch caliber pass rusher.  Hopefully Ballard finds that in the draft.

 

I'm also a little nervous signing all these Patriots players.  They seldom thrive away from the Belicheck system. 

 

Overall...It's a start at least.

Sheard has had some pretty good years in Cleveland too.

 

Overall I like the addition, he may be overpaid but that's going to happen if you want to get good players in free agency most of the time.

So let me get this straight...

 

We sign the guy everyone wanted, and people are still finding ways to complain? 

 

This board is NEVER satisfied. 

Lol "we should have kept Fleener because Allen is terrible." "Omg we traded Allen? What are we going to do at TE?"

I like seeing a highlight of him sacking Brady. Hopefully there will be more of that with a Shoe upside his head.

Are people stupid?  Do they not see the contracts being given out nowadays?

 

We got a freaking bargain.

I like the signing. My biggest concern now is CB & now safety with Adams gone. I would still like to see us sign an experienced guard & a bonafide NT.

FWIW I think this is a good deal for the Colts,and I think Sheard will be a good complementary piece for the defense.

 

But in no planet, not even one 10 000 light years away can this be considered a "bargain".

Actually, yes it is a bargain.  You can't compare these things to contracts in the past.  It's funny how EVERY single signing has people astounded without realizing thats just where the league is going.

I dont know what you thought you were reading, but i had to go back and re-read every post up to yours. No one complained, so i think you are probably just makin % up.

That's quite a bit of money for someone who only had 5 sacks last year

He had 8 the year before and he has been in the league 6 years he has had 5 or more sacks every year but one.

Can't really judge a player on something he did 2 seasons ago. He's in his prime and should be just as good as ever. It's worrying that he slowly lost playtime and lacked the discipline with silly Billy

First it said "probably spent too much."  The next sentence said basically that that is how FA worked...an acknowlegement is not complaining.

 

So teah, i think you are at the very least reading tpo much into it. Almost every other post other than the one you picked out was a good acceptance if not glowing endorsement of the deal.

You have a Ryan Grigson quote in your signature. I refuse to take anything you say seriously.

Isn't Ad Hominem. It's my argument against someone saying I'm making things up when there have clearly been people upset about what we spent on him, rather than being happy we have someone at a good price that is an immediate upgrade over any LB we've had recently.

 

I can't take anyone seriously who quotes him.

Sure it is m8. You're straight up not acknowledging his post and attacking the person rather than is content. All because of a Grigson quote.

It's a bit pricey but you are going to overpay in FA.  That's just the cost of doing business.  What I like with all the signings so far is they are shedding older guys to get younger, and I don't mind overpaying if the guys are at least in their prime years.  Both Mingo and Simon are 26, and Sheard and Locke are 27.  I know Butler is 30 but I would hope we can retain him for a coupe more years.

You clearly read my response how you wanted to.

 

It's fine. That's what most people on the internet do.

This fact didn't slip by me either. Hopefully they bring their nastiness with them to Indy. Great start for Ballard for sure.
