NFL players cut the Colts could sign???

Recommended Posts

Some players to think about:

 

Jeremy Kerley, WR, 49ers, he has always been stuck on a bad squad and he caught 64 passes (on 115 targets!) for 667 yards with a bad QB situation

 

T.J.Ward, S, Broncos - best box safety at least till Geathers comes back, our strong safety position is not the strongest suite for our DB corps

 

John Greco, G, Browns - he is a very good guard when healthy, can sign him for a 1 year deal, much like Evan Mathis was, for that 1 year with the Broncos

 

Who are your players you want the Colts to take a look at?

Does Ward go to waivers or does he have have enough years to just be a FA now?   If so, it's a bidding game for him.

Free Agent 

 

Waivers only count for players with 4 years experience or less

They tried to trade him with no takers before they cut him

I saw his 2016 numbers and he was bad along the interior. Blount and the Patriots ran at him at will leading to 3 TDs for Blount in that Patriots vs Seahawks game. That was probably a big reason Seahawks wanted to ship him off. I will take my chances with Hankins, hope Hankins pays off.

 

Joe Vellano, who is 28, has played on the Patriots squad the last 3 years, can play multiple positions along the line, is a versatile DL too.

I believe it was Holder who said we have put in claims on a couple of WR's so Kerley could be one of them.  We definitely should go for Greco too.  Would love Ward but he will have suitors.  He will probably pick a contender.

I'd sign a few guys. We HAVE to get Greco !!!! But yeah. Wouldn't mind any of the guys @NorthernColt mentioned above ^^^^^. I want us to start taking chances on highly regarded young players who haven't hit yet. Like 1-3 rounders. Sometimes they go to a new team and ball. Like a David Amerson off the top of my head. Jerry Hughes. Etc. I loved PJ Dawson. I wanted us to draft him. He's very talented. Wouldn't hurt. Alex Collins and Matt Jones wouldn't be bad. I think we're crazy if we don't sign Greco..

And we don't need Ward. Everyone still keeps ignoring Farley, why ???? IDK, but I think he's gonna be a pretty nice surprise this year. All around S in the making IMO.

And even though Seattle gave up a really good WR AND a 2, we should have done everything possible to acquire him. No 1st RD pick, and no Moncrief or obviously no TY.

How about Adam Redmond? Young and full of potential. He's a CB and would fill a need. He was injured last year, but looked good in his limited time.

Are you talking about Richardson? Kearse isn't that good. Jets did it for the pick. Colts would have had to give up a high pick, which would be bad. Colts are in rebuild mode and need all the assets they can get.

Shilique Calhoun 3rd round pick from MSU in 2016 was released by the Raiders. I was interested in him draft day. I think the Raiders tried to play him as an OLB in their 4-3 and it didn't work. I'd love to get a look at him coming off the edge for us. While at MSU he made a living getting to the QB in big moments.

Didn't see that cut tbh. Was high on him before the draft.

He was projected as a 4-3 DE. But the knack on him was he was a speed only guy. Not strength. Bad for 4-3 DE.

I always liked T.J Ward..

Pierre Desir? Seahawks let him go, but they're stacked at the position. Like to play physical

With our right tackle issues, I am thinking we could move Haeg, a former tackle, who is currently projected to play right guard to right tackle and sign Greco to play right guard. I think it could work. It will get us more experience like it did with the Falcons when they signed Mack and it helped their O-line.

I think we should at least look at the following:

 

Dorian Johnson (depth on Oline)

Michael Schofield (Oline depth)

Andrew Tiller (Oline)

TJ Clemmings (Oline-)

Xavier Cooper (pass rushing downs)

Shilique Calhoun (Another pass rusher)

Jeremy McNichols (Looked good coming out of college this year)

KJ Dillon (Hard hitting safety)

Leon McQuay

Cross Clemmings off your list. He sucks.

Every year we should just pick up 2-3-4 2nd or 3rd year players who were highly regarded prospects. 1-3 RD picks. And some other kids with potential. Like a Calhoun. Hell we'd eventually hit big on one or two. And we may be in rebuild mode this year, but next year if we have any sense we'll be in reload mode. Close to 90 million in cap space and another draft, mixed with our younger guys (rookies this year, 2nd-3rd year players) developing and/or breaking out. Hooker, Wilson, Basham in their 2nd seasons, Haeg, Ridge, etc in their 3rd seasons.

I did not see that on any Vikings website. According to the Vikings beat reporters, the Vikings wanted Boone to take a pay cut and he refused. So, he was released.

Lol. Vikings fans agree. But cross him off because he was claimed by Washington. Their OL coach is probably one of the best in the league. I wish him the best and hope he turns his career around.

Didn't see that. I posted it before he was claimed. Best of luck to him. It'll be interesting to see if the Redskins can turn his career around.

John Greco - Would be a solid depth player if not a starter for our line.  Older than is wanted but right now we need to focus on allowing time for who ever is playing QB.

 

Gerald Hodges - A lot of people wanted him during FA.  Another player for depth if we have issues with players and health (Bostic).

 

Perry Riley - Same as above but I like Riley a little more personally.  Hodges is younger but both are under 30.

 

Gary Barnidge - Not sure what price tag he is hoping for but he could be a solid TE #2.  Swoope is out for awhile so why not?

 

Dan WIlliams - Older but I think he still has some productive juices left.  If he can allow for a low dollar price tag I would like his depth added.

 

Jaye Howard - Another pretty good DT to help depth.  I know we have a strong group but they can always get stronger.

TJ Ward wont come here. He'll sign for a contender almost certainly.

 

I don't know.  He got his ring and he took a lower pay then he could have received to get it.  

 

He may come for whomever gives him the most money.  

 

That said I would also say that we shouldn't be backing up a brink's truck to his door.  He's 30 and wouldn't be in our long term plans.

Calvin Pryor just got released by the Browns after a fight with a teammate.  Idk how he did with the jets before the trade and the fighting with a teammate worries me but I know a lot of people liked him coming into the draft.  May be some good depth for cheap.

    • I really like your commitment to fixing the o-line. If we land Sitton, Norwell and Williams to put in with Kelly and AC, I would evaluate we have more than enough talent to protect Luck. Also like the assortment of offensive weapons you have added.   I get the feeling Williams wont drop to the second, there are few teams towards the end of the draft that could do with oline help. NE and Philly may not have their starting LT's for next year as an example.
    • (First of all, I'm using @Superman 's format, so thanks to him for it)    Team Cap Space: $74,194,402 (after Vinatieri Signing)   Own free agents:  Adam Vinatieri - already signed Rashaan Melvin - 3 years 24M (12 guaranteed) (9M first year this is what Ballard usually does - gets flexibility on the backend of the deal by giving up more guaranteed money at the front end) Jack Mewhort - 1 year 2M Jon Bostic - 1 year 1.5M Pierre Desir - 3 years 4M (2.5M guaranteed, 1.5M hit in the first year) - I'm taking a bit of a calculated risk here. He could be a good piece for our DB core and i'm tying him up by giving him some guaranteed money Barkevious Mingo 1 year, 2M Mike Person - 1 year 800K, he played well when he got a chance for us  Luke Rhodes 1 year 600K Erik Swoope 1 year 600K Chris Milton 1 year 600K Jeremy Vujnovich, 1 year 600K ------------------------------------------------- Total spent: 19.2M (for 2018), Cap Space Left: 55,194,402   Other Teams' Free agents: Andrew Norwell, OG - 5 years, 66M(44M guaranteed, 14M hit first year) all pro guard, I've decided enough is enough. when Luck comes back he will be protected Josh Sitton, OG - 3 years, 22M (12M guaranteed, 7M hit first year) pro bowl guard - see above, I'm fixing the guards position in FA.  Anthony Hitchens, ILB - 4 years, 26M (13M guaranteed, 6M hit first year) - Eberflus gets his Mike to help him in transitioning this defense into 43...  Tyler Eifert, TE - 1 year prove it deal 5M - he's a quality TE and would probably get more(both number and years) were it not for his injuries.in the last 2 seasons Paul Richardson, WR - 3 years, 20M (10M guaranteed, 6M hit in 2018) Corey Nelson, ILB  2 years 2M(1M guaranteed, 1M hit) - depth ILB piece.  (other depth signings at around minimum salary): 7M (I'm not good evaluating the more marginal talent so I would assume there are some OLine depth signing, some pass-rush depth signing, some safety depth signing, etc.) ------------------------------------------------- Total spent: 46M (for 2018), Cap Space Left: 9,194,402     Trades(before June): John Simon to KC Chiefs for their 4th round pick - IMO Simon is one of the players that's most likely to not fit in our new scheme. I'm projecting a trade here ------------------------------------------------- Savings - 3,281,250 Updated Caps Space left: 12,475.652       Draft: Trade: Jets call and offer their first round pick, second round pick and a fourth round pick for our no.3. Colts accept   1/6(from Jets) Bradley Chubb, EDGE, NC State, 4QBs and Barkley are gone.  start building some pressure on the defense 2/36 Leighton Vander Esch, ILB, Boise state, athletic do-it-all linebacker with speed 2/37(from Jets) Connor Williams, OT, Texas - hopefully teams are indeed not superhigh on him and he slips to the second round. Draft him and put him at RT to begin and then transition him to LT if we have a money crunch on our hands when AC's contract expires 3/67 Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia - a big physical RB, with good vision, who gets yards after contact. Great complement to Marlon Mack and ***** 4/103 Nathan Shepherd, DL, Fort Hays State - big interior disruptor. He's a 'potential' pick, but he killed the senior bowl and was unblockable in 1-on-1 drills vs some very good interior O-linemen  4/104(from Jets) Fred Warner, ILB, BYU - quick sideline to sideline ILB with some coverage skills. Needs to add some weight probably and work on getting rid of blockers 4/122(from Chiefs) Dante Pettis, WR, Washington - I have no idea why he's not ranked higher on draft boards, he has consistently been available around here in simulated mock drafts I've done, I love his speed and the way he attacks the ball in the air. He also has some value in the return game. Has 9 punts returned for TD in his Washington career 5/140 Dominick Sanders, S, Georgia - a well rounded safety good in coverage. Had good year and showed more consistency than in previous years.   6/178 Kylie Fitts, EDGE, Utah - often injured, Fitts didn't have the production his early career suggested(7 sacks junior season). He is a quick and slippery pass-rusher. This is a traits pick with the hope that with health he will develop into a rotational pass-rusher 7/221 Michael Joseph, CB, Dubuque - intriguing small school prospect who held his own at the Senior Bowl. Good developmental prospect.  -------------------------------------------------------------------- 12M spent on draft picks. Cap Space Left: ~0.5M   Depth Chart(bolded are the draft picks, underlined are the FA acquisitions)   I tried addressing the full roster with heavy emphasis on O-line help. I feel like i would feel very comfortable putting Luck behind this O-line. The DB core is very thin but I just couldn't do everything this off-season. LB core needs more work too.    Thoughts?   
    • Very nice win coming out of the break. We are now tied for the 4th Spot with the Wizards at 34-25. I see no way we miss the playoffs looking at the Heat who are 30-29 and in 8th, Pistons are 9th at 28-30. I mean we would really have to go into a funk to miss the Playoffs now. I could see us finishing 7th though because of our schedule. 7th would get us either the Celtics or Raptors in Round 1.
    •   Statistically, the success of play action isn't very closely related to the strength of a team's rushing offense.   Take the 2016 Vikings. Adrian Peterson missed most of the season, McKinnon (3rd rounder) and Matt Asiata (UDFA) split carries. They averaged about 3.2 yards/carry. They used play action on 19% of their pass plays, and they averaged 3.2 yards more per pass play when using play action, which was the biggest differential in the league.   The 2016 Steelers only averaged 1.4 yards more per play action pass, and they have one of the best RBs in the league. The 2016 Cowboys only averaged 1.8 yards more per play action pass.   http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2017/2016-play-action-offense
