He has ties with Ed Dodds, and Seattle only has a little over $13 million in cap space and four draft picks in 2018. Bobby Wagner is one of the best inside linebackers in the game today and we can afford him. He still has two years left on his deal with Seattle, but with not much cap space to resign their own free agents or be active in free agency, maybe Ballard can work his magic and propose a trade to Seattle in order to bring Wagner to the Colts.
The only reason I brought this up is that someone posted an article about it earlier today and it had me thinking. I would personally love this, as our defense could use a force in the middle of our defense.
Any "I know a guy story" is going to get that type of feedback, unless the person has previously broken inside news before. There are also a handful of forum members with enough proven knowledge and reputation they could get away with it with LESS flack, but even they would receive some push back.
With all due respect you don't know who the Colts will pick. I agree Barkley is the best RB on the board but that automatically mean the Colts take him. The same thing could be said of Chubb. We get a pass rusher it then in turns makes the whole defense better. It would have a bigger effect on this team than a great RB IMO.
