Why no conversation about Hankins

Not sure why Ballard wouldn't beat that offer. But apparently no other team will either. 

 

I was curious, so I went on one of the Giants fan forums to see what they thought about him.  I didn't spend much time there but what I saw was positive.

 

All I know is that he's affordable and better than anyone we have on the roster at that spot.  Seems like a slam dunk.  But there could be stuff we don't know, from medical to personal.

Yeah, I have trouble seeing a clear vision on this. We know that Ballard wants a quality NT from the talks with Poe and Woods looks more like a backup so what is the deal? It is probably not money if that lousy offer from Giants is all he have. Maybe we don't consider he a true NT? I would sign him and cut Jones in a heartbeat even if he is looked as "just" a DT but not a true NT. 

 

Just do it all ready! :bossy::Gaah:

Is Ballard on Twitter?  Maybe we should start a campaign to message him and Mr. Irsay.  #SignHankins!

He's not getting a deal with the 10mil+ he was pushing. Now he's dropped to 8mil but that's not what the Giants want him at. If I was Chris Ballard idk why I wouldn't make this happen, you almost gave Poe 12mil why not give Hankins 8mil? Were still sitting on about 25-30 mil I think

I think it's under 20M by now.  If you look at Spotrec, they're not quite up to date with Butler, Woods, and the new TE but they did have Spence.  They also include what the draft class will cost.  They have us somewhere between 23-25 depending on how you read it (top 51 contracts).   

 

But that still means we have plenty to sign Hankins.  8M/year sounds like it would do it.  Is he worth it?

We did NOT almost give Poe 12 Mill.     Not sure where that comes from?    If we had,  Poe would've signed with us.......

 

Maybe it's possible that Hankins does not want to play the 3-4?      Or maybe he doesn't want to play in a small market like Indy.      Maybe he likes the idea of a big city like New York?      There are all sorts of reasons why it hasn't happened.      Doesn't mean it won't happen tomorrow, or sometime this week?

 

But if it doesn't happen,  there are reasons......

Yea but then overthecap has us at 28 before the draft. They have Spence as well as butler but no woods. I'm confused honestly idk what its is, Doyle and Sheard are the only real chunk signing, everything else adds up to like 15mil. It could be 25 maybe its under 20 but I'm not sure. I do think he's worth it, he's a 3 down Nose who doesn't just eat up blocks but also makes plays. He's a top 10 NT in the league RN and he's only 25.

Reported by Josina and posted on this forum like a million times. Sorry "up to" 12 mil a year. 60÷5=.....12. Maybe you think she wasn't talking about us and that's fair, but I do.

We really don't know how much was guaranteed or incentive laden.  He'd be crazy not to take it if most of it was guaranteed.   

 

He's taking a chance that he won't get hurt this year to get a big contract next season.  Maybe he thinks he's going to get Suh money, 60m guaranteed.

I'm sure most of it wasn't guaranteed it was a high incentive contract. I think your spot on with these stud FAs that took a 1 year deal. They're playing it smart TBH their agents know the cap space is going up next year so wait it out and get the most out of the biggest contract of your career.

I don't think Josina said anything with clarity that the big offer came from the Colts.

 

I think people here jumped to conclusions on that one.     

 

I don't believe we offered 5/60 and he signed elsewhere for 1/8 which might become 10.    That does NOT add up.      Makes no sense at all.

Well like the other poster said most was probably not guaranteed it was play for your pay so to speak. It was either us or the Jags the phins couldn't break the bank like that. It does if you look at it from an agents stand point. Why sign long term now when the salary cap is going up until 2020. More money to spend for teams means more money for these future FAs. Hypothetically if Dontari Poe has a Pro Bowl type year with full health and he's hits FA next year he'll be looking at 13-15/yr. To me it makes sense

Guarantees are normally 40 to 60 percent.    Somewhat higher for the best, like Luck, who got 71 percent guaranteed.     Or closer to 30-33 percent for lesser players.

 

But if we guaranteed 10 Mill that would only be 16 percent.    So,  that doesn't sound likely.

 

If we offered 60,  we would have at least guaranteed 10, and possibly more.    So,  I don't see that deal being realistic.      

 

Poe can shop...   but he now HAS to have a good year to get a good offer next year.    Bad backs typically don't get better after another year of wear and tear...

 

Nothing about the reported numbers make sense.    Nothing.   This feels like the Poe camp trying to create a bidding war and no one bit.     He got 1/8 from Atlanta.    Incentives can make it 10.     That's Poe's new world.   He's got to have to flat-out ball like crazy to get more than that a year from now......

 

I was impressed that Ballard got Poe in the building for a day,  and let him walk out the door when they couldn't come to terms.     Takes guts to do that.     I think that might be Ballard's most impressive move so far of the off-season.

    • If you don't think Chuck has had his hands tied because of more than a couple of things I think you need to look closer. No QB, no running game, injuries and rookies. Lack of talent at key positions. You cant make adjustments when you are limited to the players available with the talent to make it happen. All Chuck has been able to do is keep what talent he does have on the field. He don't have the depth to be creative.
    • I've cooled off on Harbaugh.   He hasn't really impressed at Michigan as of late.  He doesn't really ingratiate himself well over time.  I don't expect him to be available anyway.   I also don't want Gruden.  Not impressed by his tenure in Tampa Bay and the deterioration of that defense under his watch.  That Super Bowl trophy he has was with Dungy's team.  The longer Gruden coached there the worse Tampa got.   I trust Ballard to evaluate what's out there and bring in the kind of coach that he wants. Maybe someone he knows from his tenure in Kansas City or Green Bay.  I don't think it has to be a big name for a big name's sake.   If it is, then it will most likely have Irsay's footprints all over it not Ballard's.
    • Well then, let me clarify. I'd like to see a new HC who is a proven creative offensive expert and who brings in a top DC to run that side of the operation. As for Chuck having two hands tied behind his back, I'd disagree. His bad decision making and inability to adapt at halftime are infamous by now and need no further discussion. Luck or no Luck, Pagano has caused his own demise. I'm looking forward to a fresh start with a new coaching staff. Can't happen soon enough. 
    • I was talking about the Arian's offense and how it is detrimental to the health of QBs.
    •   This is so well said....and in addition to all this, he was thrown in behind an O-line that was is complete disarray and  have only recently begun to not completely suck.....
