I think the Colts are trying to build a good locker room of clean players with the right personality, but a veteran with a mean-streak might tear into that, so maybe they figured he wasn't worth the risk.
Harry good post. I was totally all in on us getting him but hunt did play pretty well last year especially early now that you mention it. I think Ballard is going to pass on this guy but I would still like to get him if the price is right.
I got one for our offense and I hope they do this lineup a good number of times
Ebron and funchess on the outside, hilton in the slot with Mack and Campbell with Luck in shotgun.
Ebron AC Nelson Kelly Glowinski Smith Hilton Funchess
Mack Luck Campbell
If you want even more speed, move Hines to the back field and put Campbell out wide instead if funchess
I wouldn't mind having McCoy, but I'm not going to lose any sleep if the Colts don't land him. He isn't the same player he was a half-dozen years ago, on the wrong side of 30, and probably looking for two or three times what he's worth to the Colts. He would also suck up some snaps that would be valuable for developing some of the "kids". I don't care what he did five or six years ago. Put his numbers from last year up against Margus Hunt's, then look at the contract numbers that are being tossed around. Hunt had slightly better productivity except only had five sacks vs. McCoy's six. At $4.5MM per year on a two-year contract, Hunt is probably Ballard's "yardstick" against which a potential McCoy deal would be measured. If McCoy would take $5-6MM per year on a two-year deal, great. If not, pass, please.
It seemed like such a sure thing, but the Bama backs are hard to gauge. They play on an NFL team, at the collegiate level, so they demolish the opposition. Josh Jacobs doesn't seem like a workhorse stud to me, but everyone else is falling for the ol' Bama allure. I liked Harris more honestly, when I scouted them, but I guess time will tell.
