Cool was hoping somebody was talking about this already. I really like Joe Haden but no way am I breaking the bank for him. Injuries are killing us, but no need to be desperate. We can have a great off season next year if we don't panic and blow all our $ on aging vets. 

5-7 mil 1 or 2 years and I'm happy AF!!

We have over 20M in cap. I would do a 1 year deal for somewhere in the 3-5M range

Think its about 17 mil not 100 saw that in a tweet haha. Agreed on the price tho. The 1 year small pay deals I think have added up, but won't affect us next year witch is great

we have about 16 million to spare, thats using a 5 million buffer most teams keep for in season churn.

I actually really like Culliver as a cover corner. Also has that swag you love to see in a corner, always barking and getting in WR heads. Not a good tackler and aging with injury history tho. And I'd take Joe Haden over him all day, but hey for the right price we can maybe have both!

While we are over here bickering about whether we should offer him $5M or $7M watch the Pats swoop in and sign him and have the best 3 CB tandem in the NFL.  Man we should offer this guy a 2 or 3 year deal pending a physical.  Having him even at $7-9M for the next 2 season is immensely better than trotting out the Melvin's and Culliver's and Milton's and Hairston's etc.

Do the Colts really need another injury prone player?   While we are not strong at this position, if he can not be on the field he does not really help

I would love the ability to make our secondary better for the right price that is.  To have Haden (hopefully with a chip on his shoulder) and Culliver, who hopefully can play still.  That would be solid because we know Davis is going to try and get on the field ASAP.

Let them over pay for him then. Joe Haden has had 2 at best average years with injury concerns. Not everything they do is perfect, they gave us a 4th for Dwayne Allen, he's looking terrible in their camp while we took Marlon Mack

I said this in another thread, even with his diminished abilities and injury history, Haden had more PDs and more INTs than anyone on the Colts roster last year.  And with Davis being injured, Ballard would be remiss to not at least look at and talk to haden.

Haden was the 88th rated corner last year.  He was targeted a lot, gave up the most TD passes (6), and had a high QB rating against him.  Injuries have rendered him ineffective.  The Browns cut him so they wouldn't have to pay his $11 million guaranteed salary for this season.

I have a friend who is a Browns fan and they told me Joe Haden is always getting hurt and that hes not even that good anymore. They are pretty happy he was cut.

 

I think I'll pass.

That's the biggest concern thats why I'm not willing to have a bidding war with other teams. If they want to over pay be my guest. If he wants fair pay and a chance for a starting job come to Indy

If it happens then I trust the Colts front office believes Haden can help us. 

 

That said, the Browns just cut him for a reason. 

 

Haden has been hurt a lot, and he was never a fast corner to begin with. 

 

I think his days of playing man corner could be way behind him. Might have to be in a zone scheme or move to safety now. Is he capable of that? I don't know, but it's not what we are looking for. 

 

Just my two cents.

The injury issue is something that would concern me and makes me believe Ballard probably has not even thought about making this move.  But, just because of the past does not mean he can't have a solid future.  It has happened before.  If he wants to play and we can get him for cheap...I have no problem seeing what he can do.  1-year contract at the most though.

I meant to put it in the FA section. My bad.

Wasn't trying to be rude, sorry if it came off that way. Have a good one.

It would be risky signing Haden because of his past injuries; not sure how good he is anymore. Other players we've gotten from the Browns were busts for the Colts (everyone knows who they are without mentioning names) . If the Browns released him, there was a good reason. I would  pass.

Speaking of this, I have a feeling Allen is going to get cut.

That seems fairly accurate from what I've seen but I think he can still play at starting corner level if he's put injuries behind him. I think he started relatively well last season before getting hurt, making some crazy good plays like the INT against Ravens in the first game.

 

I'd be interested as he'll probably be cheap. Guys who get cut late August won't get big contracts.

If the price is reasonable, I would sign him. A lot of potential suitors out there though.

Bad teams can cut good, useful players too. That's why they stay bad. Like Taylor Gabriel. Different situation but this is the Browns after all.

    •   No, we need a game-breaker RB, a game-breaker TE, a big bodied game-breaker WR, a game-breaker LBr, % let's just get a whole team of game-breakers, why didn't we do this before?! Fire the Colts from the city of Indy!! This is ridiculous! I put this on Irsay! Where is irsay in all this?! Fire Mcdaniels! This team is absolute trash!
    • At the end of the day, I would be happy with either. I do think you could get 80% of Barkley's production from a back in round 2 or 3. I don't think the same can be said for a pass rusher of Nick Chubb's calibre. The other side of the coin is, I don't believe there is a single player who can improve us more for 2018 than Barkley.
    • It's Ballard who runs the business, but he stated and also proved that he listens. With McDaniels arriving, he will have his voice  heard. And because of that, I think the Colts will go for someone like Deion Lewis in free agency, and draft another guy in the 2nd, maybe 3rd day, then McDaniels will implement a similar running by committee running game, what the Patriot's been using for a long time.   That does not require an elite rusher, so I just don't see them drafting a running back in the first round.
    •   People downplay the importance of RB in relation to other positions  A very good or even just good RB will usually be good enough.   Given the Colts current situation and roster I would not take B Sanders at #3 either ... This isn't 80's or 90's: "Good-Very Good" Pass Rushers, Corners, etc ... are more beneficial than "Elite" RBs.   I bet the Steelers would have opted for Shazier and a "Good" RB over "Elite" Bell and no Shazier for their playoff run if given the choice.
    • After watching the show, I came away with the thought that unless the Colts move back to around the 9-11 area, there is no way we are going to be taking Quentin Nelson from Notre Dame. Although I love the guy, I believe with McDaniel's offensive scheme, and Luck getting rid of the ball quickly most of the time, a guard at #3 just does not make sense. I think Chubb or Barkley, depending on who is there will be the choice, although if Barkley is there, and a QB, or even possibly Chubb, there are going to be teams wanting to move up. I really came away thinking how much I would like Chubb after all I have read on him lately, but if the right picks were involved, and we could move down just a bit, have to think about it. I found it interesting that Polian said he would not move off our spot unless we got at least another 1st draft pick next year, and one more high round this year. It seems Barkley, Chubb, Rosen, and Darnold, and possibly Allen are going to have a lot of suitors vying for them. FA will change all this, but Ballard is going to have to make some tough decisions on draft day I believe.   Can't believe it is only 3 months away.
