Browns trying to trade Joe Haden??

Recommended Posts

If so I think this might be a good trade for the Colts presuming it doesn't cost too much.  Considering we have to take on most his contract I would say a 5th round pick would be fair.  If they want much more then that then forget it. 

 

Browns would have to pay his signing bonus which would leave the Cap hit to the Colts to be 11.2M with 4M in guaranteed salary for this year.

With Davis hurt and our secondary weak even with him, it would improve our secondary quickly.  Haden can play in Davis's place if necessary or the two of them can play together.

 

After this year, Davis's contract expires, plus Haden would have no guaranteed money left on his contract and still be under contract for the next 2 years.  This gives us plenty of flexibility as the Colts will not be financially tied to either Davis or Haden beyond this year.  

 

And quite frankly I'm just not looking forward to watching Melvin play CB#1 for a good deal of time this year.

I'm good. Declining talent with a massive salary and we need all the draft picks we can get. Let Quincy and Hairston show what they have. We aren't in win now mode at the moment.

I was wondering when this topic would pop up. No, don't want him. Browns want to get rid of his salary and won't get rid of him for cheap. Not to mention he's injured(only played 1 full season) and isn't very good anymore. He's paid like a top 10 CB but doesn't play like one. He's 28 as well. Hard pass.

He's not good anymore. Looking at the roster I wouldn't get him; but if the team thinks they can compete when people get healthy, they may look at him. Would be ridiculously expensive though...

Declining performance, nagging injury issues, and a big salary. I got excited when I heard they were shopping him, but as much as we need help at corner, I don't think this is the right move. If they'd give him up for a late conditional pick and pay part of his $11m salary, I'd consider it.

Just wait them out. Maybe they end up cutting him just to get him off the books...and then he would cost very little. 

 

But aside from Haden, there are going to be a handful of CBs available after cut downs I think. I would expect the Colts to sign at least two.

A couple of years ago, been jumping up and down to trade for Haden, but wouldn't give up a draft pick for him higher than a 7th now. There are some veterans out there who can be signed to cover for a few weeks that won't cost us a draft pick and probably be just as good as Haden- Leodis McKelvin, Sam Sheilds (if he can play), Kyle Arrington, Kyle Wilson.

It's an interesting idea, but I'm not sure we can afford it TBH.  

  

If Luck is going to be healthy most of the season, I'd push more for it.

Package Rogers and Aiken and trade for Haden and a 4th round pick.  Haden may be declining but in 13 games last year he still had more PDs and INTs than anyone on the Colts roster.  And it's not like the Colts are stacked at CB depth.

I would rather go for TJ Ward. He is on the trade block according to rumors. I know we need a cb, but would anyone argue haden is better than ward?

He was before he started getting concussions and other injuries.

He is way cheaper at least. Lol

 

Also fills a current need, just not CB...

i would rather take darrelle revis or someone in the free agent pool for cheaper price than Joe Haden.

Melvin is better than Revis at the moment. Sad, but true. 

 

Revis can't keep up with the speed of the game anymore.

I would bring Revis in and see what he has.  If he still expects a large sum of money let him walk.

I can gamble on revis for cheap price than joe haden. revis can bounce back from horrible 2016 and be decent for us.

It's not worth trying to figure out cap space until after this weekend. We don't know who will be cut.

We don't need Joe or Revis. PERIOD.

 

Let the rookies play.

Our secondary is already bad with all these injuries and without a veteran presence, we would really suck. It's just an idea of bringing in a guy like Revis and let the rookies learn from him. That's all. =)

Nope.

 

Pagano can teach our corners how to play. We don't pay players and use roster spots for coaches. That's why Grigson was fired.

Pagano didn't do a good job with secondary in recent years.

Cap hit would be 11.2 to us.  When a player is traded away the team trading him has to take the cap hit on any remaining signing bonus that hasn't been pro-rated.

 

And our cap space is 21.5 M according to overthecap.com

I really just hope I'm not going to have to spend this year watching Melvin try to D-up on #1 receivers.

I wouldn't see this as being much worse than watching Haden being beat...but yet his paycheck is larger so that would be worse.

Welp, at least they have Hairston lol.  Hopefully he can be good, he's just going to get thrown to the wolves though,  same with Quincy.

A lot of the players you hear being shopped now are players with high salaries.   I think we could wait until they are released and then try to get them at a lower salary if we are interested.  Haden, Ward, Osweiler, maybe even Wilkerson could be released.  Maybe more surprises yet to come.   It's going to be an interesting week watching Ballard at work.

Agreed. This team is a few years away...keep to the plan. With the issues surrounding Luck and Kelly and now Vontae...lets just focus on playing the youngsters and getting better. Hopefully in a couple years with some more additions we will be ready to compete for a championship....even with some drastic moves we would be lucky to be a playoff contender. That cap space is valuable...and I think Haden is a troubled player that is not on the upswing.

Revis is guaranteed 6 million dollars just to sit at home. Anything he gets over that is what it would take to get him off his butt...one that I'm sure is getting fatter by the day with him not working out. He was old and out of shape last year....it would be a disaster trying to bring him in now. Maybe he can help coach the secondary...but he certainly isn't playing.

Actually...the Jets owe him the $6 mil so if a team offers something low he would still have the incentive to play because it is money on top of what the Jets are paying (depending on the amount).  He is also been linked to teams, such as, the Eagles and Giants.  He has been consistently working out in hopes to be signed to redeem last year.  He is one of the best to play the position and he wants to show that again, can he, that remains to be seen.  

 

But to randomly say he is sitting and getting fat...read first then comment!

    • I’ve been to a lot of games there and never had any real issues but I’m not a trash talker either.  I will have to yell at McDaniels though.  
    • They really came hard at Vic with the traps. He's unselfish player rarely does he force things so he looked to pass. He trusts his guys to make plays. It was great to see Bogey have that kind of second half. He's had an impact on the series in other ways like checking Bron but he hadn't been shooting it great. That changed tonight I love the guys game. He's underrated as player. He's more then a 3pt shooter and he has been the Robin to Vic's Batman all year.   You hit it on the head this team does the dirty work to get W's. They have worked to turn weakness into strength. We struggled rebounding the ball and on D early in the year. We hang our hat on D now and hit the boards. That's putting in work. Myles is hitting the glass consistently huge step forward in his game.     That was a heck of a W but no time to celebrate. We have a quick turnaround which should be to our advantage. We have to get the game on Sunday. It'll be interesting to see what they try to do with Dipo in that one. I'm not sure they want to give him that look again. I think our biggest obstacle is to stay out of the officiating. I thought that almost got to us tonight. We are not getting many calls and we are going to take some terrible ones. That is the deal and complaining won't help It just takes energy and focus away from the game remind them Nate. 
    • Oh....     Look!     Over there!   There's a horse lying on the ground.      I can't tell if it's breathing....   Here's a big stick....    why don't you go over there and beat it.    Keep beating it until you think it's dead.   And then beat it somemore.    That'll do it!     Oh,  and let's kick some too.    That's always helpful.   What?    You think it's dead?     Well, who cares?!?    Just beat it and kick it somemore anyway!      What?     Are?     The?      Magic?      Words?   Can't?     We?      Let?      This?        Go?!?    
    • Well it's kind of hard for any receivers to make catches when the QB is getting pounded. The QB getting pounded on got more intense as the games progressed. Brissett's sack totals went up quite a bit in the 2nd halves of games. If you honestly think this team was talented enough for any head coach to get wins with then I am at a loss for words. IMO even Belichick would have been lucky to get 4 wins with the roster the Colts had last season.
    • I thought by the word "stuck" it was implied that I thought he was a lame duck coach who wasn't chosen by Ballard. But I also think he was a lame duck coach because he wasn't good enough.    If I had to make a list of the reasons for our 4-12 season in no particular order it would be - bad roster to begin with - Luck injured - other injuries across the roster - bad coaching and in game adjustments(I don't agree with you that Pagano didn't have the personnel to make the appropriate adjustments... going 100% run(not exaggerating, LITERALLY 100%) in sets with fewer than 3 receivers in the 4th Q is not about whether you have the personnel... it's about the playcalling... especially when you had great success throwing the ball with the exact same personnel earlier in the games... he just chose not to throw it and to run, run, run, run... until we lost.. ) - a lot of new personnel and no continuity...  - mistakes from young players(Mack, Brissett)   So yah, bad coaching and playcalling was just one part of it but it was part of it. I had no idea this one was even controversial ...
