Which FA signing are you most excited about?

52 posts in this topic

So far, Sheard is my favorite signing. Have a feeling he will do good things for us.

My favorite move was bringing back Butler. I'd be lying if I said any of the FAs excited me.

Bringing back Butler was definitely big.

I would have to say either Sheard or bringing back Butler.

I'm gonna go wild card and say bringing back Turbin.

 

Think he'll give us great goal line and short yardage production. But more than that, the team stated they'll use him more on first and second down, which'll keep Gore even more rested and effective.

Doyle.  He's a fellow Cathedral grad (10 years apart or so LOL).  But I also like Simon and Sheard as well.  Excited to see what we get out of them!

Not gonna lie I was more excited on the resignings, Doyle butler and turbin, but I watched a John Simon and jabaal sheard highlight video on YouTube and am now very hyped for both of them.

I liked Simon. High intensity player it would seem.

Sheard is probably the best player and can contribute the most so in a sense i'm most excited about him. But I'm not the biggest fan of the dollars he got, though it was understandable that that much had to spend no him. Including contracts, I like the Simon signing the most.

Aiken hands down will be the best addition. All this guy does is get open and catch the football. Don't be surprised if Moncrief is third. Maybe not on the depth chart, but in receptions behind Hilton and Aiken.

Simon for sure, hoping he picked up some of JJ Watts moves!!!

Simon will add toughness to our "soft" defense.

Why do,you care what he got paid?  It's not like the colts are up against the cap and his contract is going to hinder the team.

Simon and Sheard. I like the potential in that pairing.

Doyle fills 2 rolls well, and is ascending. A big keep.
Ballard did a very nice turn churn adding Sheard and Simon. :thmup:

I dont think I am specifically excited about any single pickup. I dont think any individual player is going to be a highlight reel, play of the week type of guy that I would be excited to specifically watch all game. That being said, I like a lot of the pickups, and I am very excited to see them improve our offense or defense as a unit. I think most of the players signed will match or slightly exceed the production that their $ amount is worth, which is not an easy thing to accomplish. I definitely think we have raised the teams floor with our free agent class, but raising our teams ceiling is going to have to come from our 2017 draft class, as well as our 2016/2015 draft classes taking a step up from last year.

Simon as far as the new guys.  Bringing back Doyle as far as the guys we re-signed.

I followed  his last two seasons closely. He has solid #2 potential. When he's asked to get it done he has the talent to step up.

Kamar Aiken for me. I think that guy is going to be a stud for us. 

 

Re-signing Doyle, and Turbin is a close 2nd/3rd.

I think it's very relevant when evaluating a signing, how much a player got paid.

 

It probably won't hinder the team but based on what I expect the Colts FA signings to perform, I think Simon was the best value signing.

nothing really moved the needle for me in FA.  we brought in a bunch of mid tier guys with potential to be a little better than they were on other teams

 

im not disappointed, but im not jumping with excitement either

I feel like either Simon or Sheard will pan out well for us. Both are high motor guys and I feel like with increased playing time and responsibility that they could put up decent numbers. I wouldn't be surprised to see either of them put up Waldens numbers next year while adding more pressures on top of the sacks. I'm mostly excited about the draft though, really hoping for an elite prospect on defense to get excited about!

Simon and Aiken.  I think both are going to be real solid upgrades.  Aiken has the potential to be a major weapon for Andrew.

I like Aiken and all the guys we decided to re-sign.  I think we picked the right guys and let the rest leave.  Aiken has good hands and hopefully allows for great WR competition.  We need someone other than Hilton to be a reliable target and be on the field.

Simon. 

 

 

Resigning Butler is a close second.

Up until today it was Simon and Aiken.  Now Hankins has me very intrigued.  I'm thinking he's gonna allow the dogs (LB's) to hunt.

Overall I just move how we built a solid depth and competition on defense, but as far as specific players go, I'll have to say Aiken. I like Moncreif but Aiken has a chance to make a big splash too.

Butler, sheard, simon (in that order)  Hankins comes in 6 or 7, very important but pricey.  of course, this isn't about price, it said "excitement"

Hankins and Simon....youth, production, and toughness. Glad to see Butler back as a full time safety as well.

    • I'm not gonna lie. I like your possible outcome. Get Bradley, Crowder and Tatum for PG. Possibly sign Millsap and the starting unit wouldn't be bad. Bradley, Tatum, Millsap and Turner would be starters
    • I was lucky enough to grow up in the 80's and watch that decade. Back then you had 4 Great Teams mainly built through the Draft and through Trades. So anything could happen in the Lakers/Celtics/Sixers/Pistons and the Rockets were even borderline great. Rockets actually beat the Lakers in 1981 and 1986 in the Playoffs. The 1984 Draft was incredible as well with guys like Jordan, Hakeem, Barkley, and Stockton coming out. The Lakers back then were just a joy to watch with their fastbreak, it was entertainment besides just being a sport. It wasn't built up as a 1 man league back then either like it is for LeBron today as you had Magic/Bird/ Kareem/Dr J/Isiah/Moses/and eventually Jordan and Hakeem getting all the same pub. Now days you have the best players on teams leaving to join each other to form SuperTeams like LeBron has and Durant just did. I have been watching Basketball since the late 70's and I have never seen a Conference like the Eastern Conference be such a sad sack of garbage over a long period of time. It has literally sucked as a whole ever since LeBron joined Miami in 2011. The Pacers had a strong team in 2013 and 2014 but once the Celtics lost in the 2010 Finals and outside of the Pacers for a brief moment, it has been all LeBron going on 8  seasons now and a bunch of garbage to keep it politely.
