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

I would sign him in hopes he does better than Corey White or Culliver

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.

    • 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 ...
