  1. I can speak slightly to this since I was an offensive lineman that played all long the line and I also had a partial Achilles tear once. I didn't require surgery but I did require 2.5 months of rehab/PT. It definitely took me months (plural) once cleared to get back to form. I definitely had major calf soreness since i was altering drop steps, kicks, etc and working more on the balls of my feet to minimize strain on the healing Achilles partially due to tightness but more-so due to mental issues not wanting to re-injure it. And that wasn't even a
  2. Hicks is basically saying what I thought and also fear a bit which is that Fisher may not feel incentivized to sign a multi-year deal due to his market likely being depressed Unless things fall perfectly w medical check up and value/years, I could definitely see a pivot to Leno happening after the visit.
  3. Admittedly don't know much about Chiaokhiao-Bowman, but another UDFA signing it appears.
  4. I genuinely hope you are right on multiple fronts. That said, if Leno signs in Denver he is not going to be a LT there w Garett Bolles making $17M a year as a top-7 paid OT. So Leno would have to play a new position for him (NFL-wise) and Denver would have to make him a top-5 paid RT to get in that $10M range (which they may if they just use the James money and don't pay James after his injury off-site). Now Leno played some RT at Boise (about 1/3 of his starts), but still I would not want to move to RT if I were him unless Denver made it financially worth it. Maybe they will. But
  5. I like the breakdown and agree although i caveat with this: I don't think Leno or Fisher was 2-3 year deals unless they get what their market is before being cut. And I do not think CB is going to big against himself to do that. Leno basically made $8M-$9M each year ($8.8, $5.0, $8.1, $8.1) and was slated to make $9.0M this year before cut. If the Colts are going to offer him $8-$9M a year I think he would gladly take a 2-3 year deal. But if the Colts are bargain shopping then I think he and Fisher will both be happy to take 1 year deals and prov
  6. Again hindsight is 20:20 but essentially that is what the difference amounts to. I truly believe it comes down to how folks evaluate Fields and Wentz. If someone loves Fields then that's the way it should go especially w his cheaper rookie contract. If someone believes Wentz can be a top-15 QB again (not even the MVP 2017 version but just the Top-15 2018-2019 version) then a lot of times the idea of giving up a potential top-notch pass rusher along w another pick is hard to stomach. I actually have some faith in Wentz so I am ok with what we did
  7. I look at it like this: If we really truly want to look at this through the prism of hindsight being 20:20, then most likely let's assume to top the Bears offer with them picking one spot earlier than us, let's assume we would have had to do a 2021 1 and 3 and a future 1 and 4 (to top the Bears' 2021 1 & 5 and future 1 & 4). For simplicity sake I laid it out like this since we gave up a 2021 3rd and a 2022 1st (likely) for Wentz. The question then becomes, would you right now trade: Kwity Paye Carson Wentz 2022 4th Rounder
  8. Basically it includes any payouts given for that given year. So basically it would not include signing bonus $ since that money is paid upfront and then just pro-rated for cap purposes over the length of the deal. It would include roster bonuses or workout bonuses that are specific to that given year. And of course his annual salary.
  9. I'd love to see Fisher sign a multi-year deal. I believe the likelihood is that if he does sign, he is going to want to sign a 1 year deal so that he can come back and "prove it" and cash in one more time for one last big contract in his career. This is why I think if we get him for 2-3 years it is a big win for the Colts. CB might be content to just give him the 1 year "prove it" deal, but I would much rather a 2-3 year deal w all guarantees paid now even if the year 2 and year 3 salaries are higher but not guaranteed. That way if Fisher is kept he makes his money and
  10. I saw this too and thought it was crazy. But I suppose Brooks coming back in 7-8 months and that original Fisher timeline of 7 months or so makes it so that’d put James in the early Dec timeline if it were similar. Which would mean he could sneak in a few games. But why?
  11. Posted this in the other Fisher FA thread but: I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a “check in” w Fisher the way we “checked in” w Jay Ajayi a few years back. He wasn’t ready physically and we basically said “ok we,lol keep an eye on you for when you’re ready”. the colts need this visit because if Fisher isn’t mending on or ahead of schedule they need to know and turn their attention to Leno ASAP. Especially w other teams still needing OT help (Carolina, Pitt, now Denver w James out for the year), the OT competition can heat up quickly. I just hope if w

  13. Let’s remember a few things: 1) AC was a very good underrated LT. And with him anchoring the blind side Andrew Luck got destroyed anyhow. This is the NFL. Teams scheme for your weakest link. Even if it was a 1st or 2nd rd rookie that LT spot was going to be the weak link. 2) everyone wants to point out how bad it was w Clark and green there. They were both terrible. Not just terrible starters. But terrible backups at that. We have upgraded the backups and have two former starters in Tevi and Davenport to battle w Holden and possibly someone else. It will be ok.
  14. Not sure if you are confusing me with someone else, but I am actually supporting the pick of Dayo and the bypassing reaching for OT lol
  15. I badly want to say someone like D'Ante Smith....but that is who I want and not necessarily who I think lol Probably a guy like Tyree Gillespie from Mizzou. He was solid at the Senior Bowl and when they played Florida he shut down Kyle Pitts to the tune of one catch for 8 yards against his coverage. Plus this: Now that I think about it, maybe he is someone I want close to as much as Smith lol. Wishful thinking.
