Some very unsexy free agent signings but I think I know what Ballard is doing. Thanks to Ryan Grigson the Colts have so many holes on their team especially on defense you just can't fill them all through the draft. But Ballard is someone who believes you build a successful team through the draft and not via free agency so he brings in some short term fillers for cheap money so we can get a team on the field. We probably need 2-3 drafts to get something going. Well, thank you Grigson!

I don't think short term fillers is what Ballard has in mind. The players he has brought in are pretty much young veterans who can fill depth needs and could very well become starters or at least rotational players.

One of the main problems we have had is the drop off talent levels between our starters to those depth or rotational players. Those depth and rotational players can be the difference in winning and losing games.

Reading about how Spence is good in coverage, and not great against the run, I hope the coaches realize this and play him accordingly.

Seems like a fairly good signing.  1 year 3 M is low risk to the team.  

 

I find it funny how many people say they believe in building through the draft but get PO'ed when the GM doesn't sign a star player or several star players every year.

Not sure, but I'll bet the owner is pretty pleased with the way the GM is managing his money.

Evidently he must be better than what we currently have.... so good luck.

He is a great defender on outside runs, as he can effortlessly run down the ACC's fastest players. He is stellar in coverage, can blanket tight ends and tackle from various angles. He makes quick decisions and executes on them.

 

 

I'm sold.  We couldn't cover even the worst of TE's last season so if this is even partially true, I'm happy with the signing.
