Starting to think Schwenke may not stick around long considering the Colts listed him as Ben and not Brian in their Facebook post six hours ago...

Just updated. To get @dw49 to stop calling me a lazy bum, I estimated Woods at $2.5m and Fortunato at $500k. 

 

Until we get details stating otherwise, the Colts have approximately $25.6m remaining cap space.This does not include in season buffer or practice squad. It does include draft picks.

 

First I've seen on the Woods contract. Over The Cap has it right around 1.9 mill .

They're calling it two years, $4m, and estimating bonuses/incentives.

Looks like a very large carry over unless there's an extension for Mewhort (only player I can think of that makes sense) .. which I doubt.

I would be talking to Mewhort and Moncrief about extensions over the summer.

Moncrief would surprise me. I just don't think he's quite established if he's anything more than a decent #2.

I'd be fine with paying him like he's a potentially decent #2. He might not want to be locked down at that rate, but I'd offer something in that range right now. I think he has strong #1 potential, so I'd be okay maybe overpaying based on production, due to his potential.

Agree Moncrief is a keeper IMO!

Here's a breakdown of defensive lineman Johnathan Hankins' contract with the Colts: --Hankins received $7 million roster bonus to go with $3 million salary in 2017. -- 2018 salary is $7.5 million, with $4.5 million guaranteed --2019 salary is $8 million and is not guaranteed ESPN's Dan Graziano also reported that Hankins has $3 million in incentives tied to playing time, sacks and Pro Bowl selections.

Overthecap indicates that the 4.5M in 2018 salary isn't guaranteed at signing.  It likely becomes guaranteed if he's on the roster next year.

He will get that 4.5 million. Otherwise it is not guaranteed.  When it has to be paid by is likely in the conttract, Why it isn't reflect in OTC I'm not sure why.

No it's not "fully guaranteed".  . . When the media does these numbers they look at any money that could ever become guaranteed at any point in the contract and post that as guaranteed money.  

 

Realistically it looks like only 10M is fully guaranteed.  All in the first year.

That's poor reporting then, IMHO.  Those  that care about finances of their team knows the meat of the contract is all in the guaranteed money, not money per year or total contract dollars, etc.  If parts of guaranteed money are for injury only, or based up other criteria (numbers of starts, making the next season roster, etc..) then it should be reflected.  They must know something because they report the whole 14.5 million, but the breakdown does not show that.  and there is no explanation for that and that I find troubling.

It's poor reporting but that's something they do consistently.  

 

There is a reason for it though.  While we're interested in contract structure and things like that the general public just thinks "Oh some football player just made a bunch of money."  So it's in the media's best interest to inflate things and simplify things as much as possible.

 

Quite frankly the modern media doesn't do their homework on even more important topics then football contracts these days.  

 

Remember this is the same group of people who's sophisticated investigative technique for getting all the information on a suspected criminal is to go look up their facebook page and show the picture from facebook on TV.  Which has more then once led completely innocent people who had the same name to wonder why they where being labeled a terrorist by the national news.  

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to advocate any alternative media here.  I am just saying never trust the media to do their homework on the details.  Sensationalism always wins out over details.  You have to do your own homework on the details.

Good points, and believable.  Now it begs the question, if they are that cavalier with their reporting, why should any analysis (including draft reports) be trusted as being in depth and representative?

 

One reason I subscribe to non media sites for their insight.

It's not just the media, I believe it's mostly pushed by agents. 

 

Specific to Hankins, Spotrac has update their numbers also, maybe based on OTC, and they show the $4.5m is guaranteed as of March 2018. Probably the 5th day of the league year, based on precedent.

I wouldn't trust their draft reports either honestly.  

 

Honestly the quote "Who the heck is Mel Kiper" is pretty accurate.  He's just a guy who got interested in the NFL draft a little earlier then most people where interested.  Started writing some stuff about it and eventually got picked up by ESPN and suddenly he's an expert who can tell NFL general managers they are stupid.

    • This info came out this week.     This is the first chance I've had to post it as I do every year.         Here is the actual roster with updated weights.       I printed out a roster after the draft and have now made notes about how much weight has been either lost or gained by our players.   http://www.colts.com/team/roster.html   I'm also going to write it up here....    the roster is for you to use as a cross reference...   Hope you enjoy!                 Aiken                  216      +1 Alie-Cox             267      +7 Anderson           301      +1 Ayers                 247      -8 Banner              358       -2 Basham             266      +4 Binford               185 Blackmon          185   Bond                 299       -3 Bostic               245   Boyd                 293      -17 Bray                  183      -3 Briggs                230 Brown                196 Butler                 192      +4 Castanzo            311 Clark                  311      -8 Cooper              311      +5 Crossan            203      +1 Daniels             246       -1 Davis                207 ]Dorsett            185 Doyle                262      -5 Edwards           271      -4 Farley               209       -1 Ferguson         205       +5 Geathers         220 George            234   Good               345     -10 G ore               212      -5 Graham          208 Green             211      +6 Haeg              305      +1 Hairston         195      +2 Hankins         325      +5 Hennessy      246 HIghtower     200 HIlton            178 Hooker          212      +7 Howard         214      -7 Hunt              298     +3 Jackson        234     +4 Jeter             251 Kelly             309 Langford      299      -6 Locke           208      +12 Luck             240 Mack           210        -3 McGill         299       -11 Melvin         196       +3 Mewhort      305       -7 Milton          196       +6 Mingo          239       -1 Mitchell        192       +9 Moncrief      216       -6 Morris         186        -2 Morrison      241      +6 Morris          219       +1 Mount         253        +4 Muir            309    Natson       153        -6 Parry          317       +7 Pope          205  Powell        211  Redmond   300       +5 Rhodes      238      -4 Ridgewawy 318     +1     Rogers        184     +4 Sanchez      195 Schwenke    310     -5 Sheard         265 Sickels         252     -9 Simon          250     -10 Smith           197     -8 Spence        231 Stewart        333     -14 Swoope       258     +1 Thomas       282    -10 Tolzien        215     +2 Ugokwe      315     -6 Vinatieri      212     +6 vujonvich    300 Walker        242     +7 Walker        216 Wlliams      260     +13 Wilson        206      -7 Woods       330      +23 Wylie          309   Griffey        209 Michael      220  
    • I love the talent in their def but I think luck had Wades number lol he's eaten up his defense  in wins/losses
    • A punch to the gut was how it was said to be by Pritchard. Bird sure left Pritchard a total mess. None of this is surprising to me about how the NBA direction is going. None of this is ever going to change as long as there is not a hard cap and the NBA gets paid for super stars getting put on the same teams. This started years ago with the Celtics. They always had the best teams money could buy and then when the cap come in they invented what is called the Larry Bird exception. Then the NBA seen the chance to cash in by letting teams pay them for going over the cap. Then the owners were getting paid by high dollar TV deals and couldn't care less about putting winners on the court as long as they were making money. Now the NBA is made popular by fans who really are not interested in watching basketball played in it's original form. All they want now is highlight dunks and three pointers. Defense has been lost forever right along with traditional basketball. Sad for those who remember the real basketball.
    • Fact is Pagano went 8-8 without Luck after using 5 different QBs with one of them coming right off the street. But it's things like this that gets overlooked by those who choose to. Moral superiority?? You have to be joking. That's even taking it over the top and is getting to the point of pure unaltered childishness.
    •     Sounds like we are seriously considering Lance Stephenson at starting point guard if Jeff Teague's     price is to high..   ..I know he's motivated to play hard and well but that's not something I'd be considering
