  1. Melvin Gordon is holding out because he’s a running back on a rookie deal. Castonzo has already gotten his second contract so there’s no reason for him to hold out in a contract year. Ebron is also in a contract year and while he may have outplayed what he made last year, he’s not exactly a prototypical every down TE. He played like 50% of offensive snaps. He was given the opportunity of a lifetime by Reich and Ballard and was put in a position to succeed. Neither guy is in a spot where they would benefit from a holdout. Now let’s say Darius balls out this year and next the way he
  2. Really digging what I’m hearing about Turay. I have high expectations for him and thought he was more deserving of playing time down the stretch last year. Our edge is setting up pretty nicely with Houston and Sheard as our vets and Turay, Muhammad, and Banogu for youth. Interior line is still a weakness that I’d have liked to see addressed but we’ll see how it plays out. Hearing that Collins is getting some play with the 1’s is pretty cool. Does anyone know exactly how the rotations are going with the DBs? I think Wilson has always proven himself on the field for game days but th
  3. Campbell and it won’t even be close unless he plays half the year and Brown stays healthy.
  4. I can’t believe they’d leave out the Collins/Painter/Orlovsky trio. Those three men are instrumental in Colts lore.
  5. Am I the only one who thought @crazycolt1 is a woman?
  6. ‘If you’re a left tackle and your name is not Joe Thomas, you suck.’ - Colts fans
  7. So let’s look at the names you mentioned.... Autry - An exceptionally slight (270 pounds) UT. Someone whose game resembles Raheem Brock and is adequate but not spectacular, a solid role player. Hunt - Ditto. A 6’8” inch nose tackle is unheard of. He far exceeded expectations and was asked to play way more snaps than he should. I like the guy, as I do Autry, but he is far more effective on a defensive line rotation. I do not want him starting, much less being our nose tackle on base downs. Fans have a bad habit of hyperbole when it comes to their own players, good and b
  8. BDB definitely appears to have a fetish for length across all positions. He just wants guys that can measure up to him. Honestly though I hope he isn’t living and dying by the measurements as much as it kind of seems. For instance, he’s shown a desire for long interior dlinemen but statistically the better DTs have been of the shorter, low center of gravity types like Donald and Atkins. It remains to be seen how the defense will perform and I’m not trying to be a blasphemer. I like lengthy corners and LBs, but I did take issue with some of our usage of draft capital and free agenc
  9. That’s a terrible take by PFF, and I am a big fan of PFF. That’s basically like the Browns saying ‘we already have Jarvis Landry, why would we want OBJ?’ Campbell has a strong grade from them, he’s one of the fastest in the draft, and he wasn’t even used as a deep threat at OSU. He projects better to the NFL game than any of our other draft picks. If anything the project edge rusher who graded out average, was drafted in the second round, and is being moved to a different role should be their least favorite draft pick.
  10. As a poster above said, he was a head case at Notre Dame and he’s had his share of issues since entering the league. I actually mocked him coming to us last year in the offseason on a cheap deal so I have no problems with it for this year either. He’s not anyone you want to rely on to play starter snaps but as a rotational lineman the potential has always been there just never realized.
  11. He had a bad first couple of games playing with a club on his hand, then he had to sit a couple weeks to heal, came back and took a few weeks to get going but once he did he was a damn stud. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-colts-quincy-wilson-improved-late-in-2018-bound-for-strong-2019-campaign
  12. I know this thread is more about Ajayi and other potential visits but I just want to echo what folks have said about CJ Anderson. He’s really the only FA back I’m interested in. I’ve loved him since his first season as a Bronco and it was nice to see him still running hard after getting a chance with the Rams. Some guys you just root for and I’d love to root for him as a Colt.
  13. I’m not super enthused about giving him so much money but his last three years are practically mirror images of Sammy Watkins three years prior to getting $12M a year from KC. I wouldn’t have guessed he’d eclipse it but it’s not surprising if he gets a similar contract to Watkins. Every situation is different but Watkins contract didn’t prevent the Chiefs from having arguably the best offense in the league last year.
  14. Ndamukong Suh {Moderator edited} Justin Houston Cameron Wake Eric Weddle and a few shots from the fountain of youth so we can get the 2013 version of these guys.
  15. When he’s released it will be because he’s a cap casualty on a team that wants to keep their one year wonder in Dee Ford. He’s still really solid and would be absolutely fine in a 4-3. He was rated 14th of all edge defenders on PFF and he’s been a model of consistency since he came into the league. I have no idea what he’d get on the open market but I’d absolutely give him what Brandon Graham got for an extension.
  16. 1. Brissett and our first wouldn’t get us Miami’s first. 2. If it magically did get us their first, I wouldn’t use it on a WR. The only way I’d want to trade up that high is for a stud Dlineman.
  17. I really like Inman. I think he's a good guy, a good teammate, and a decent possession receiver that Luck has built a good rapport with in a very limited time. I don't see how he gets a ton on the market. He may have an inflated sense of his own worth so maybe he tests it, but I think he ends up signing here for around 2-3 million. He's two years removed from his best year in which he put up 800 yards, but in no other year did he put up more than 500, and I just think he needs us more than we need him. I like to see guys that Luck builds chemistry with stay in our offense. He seems to pick som
  18. Definitely leaning towards John Brown. Any WR that Arians likes is one I like. He’s been productive with QBs that can throw. I think he’d be just what we need opposite TY and could see an Ebron type resurgence if he came here. Also keeping Inman. Between he, Pascal, Marcus Johnson, Cain, Fountain, and a likely draft pick, someone is gonna stick and some of the other ones can be stashed on PS.
  19. I’d be against it. For an average LB I think he gets a contract he never comes close to living up to...think Anthony Hitchens last year.
  20. Desir’s career has mirrored Rashaan Melvin’s much more than Kyle Fuller’s. He’s been a journeyman, fourth round pick (Melvin was undrafted), had one good year on his fourth team, and is the same age as Melvin was last year going into free agency. Kyle Fuller was a first round draft pick who has played well since his rookie year, just had one year where he was hurt in the preseason and went to IR. Desir won’t come close to Fuller. He’ll be offered a shade more than Melvin. He can either pull a Melvin and have an inflated sense of his own ability, go to some crappy team like the Jet
  21. I would be so down for Grady Jarrett even at 15M per year. I think he’ll actually get more, probably just above Geno Atkins and Kawaan Short, so around 16.5M. As long as it’s structured right so we aren’t guaranteeing a ridiculous amount and get stuck with him for the entire contract if he underperforms or gets hurt. I don’t worry about that with Ballard though, they’ve done a great job at that so far. I do believe he’d be worth it. He’s right on par with the second tier DTs that are just below Aaron Donald. As as far as the other two, I like the thought process but I’d go with di
  22. I find it funny how people compare GMs to others and say how 'they do it the right way' and things like that. ALL GMs say 'we're going to build through the draft', 'we want to develop our own', etc....Even Grigson said the same things. I don't think I've ever heard a GM come in somewhere and say, 'Obviously we want to build through free agency and use the draft to fill needs. We want to pay B free agents A money.' Grigson went after too many old free agents after the roster was established and he thought they'd get us over the top. He had a lot of misses through his tenure in all facets but hi
  23. Inclement weather is our deep safety tonight.
  24. 1. First things first, we gotta re-sign our own. Glowinski, Inman, Hunt, and Desir are our most valuable free agents, and none of them will break the bank. Glowinski fills out our line, Inman is a real viable #2 WR that Luck likes, Hunt has balled out at times and tired out at others from a pretty high snap count, and Desir has quietly been our best corner. I would also try to keep either Mike Mitchell, Clayton Geathers, or both. Geathers has always been solid if not great when he can stay healthy and I don’t think Mitchell’s veteran presence can be understated. Also offer RFA tenders to the d
  25. In the wintery tundra of Kansas City, I’m picking whichever team has more Estonian giants on their defensive line. Not sure which team that might be but it seems like a smart bet.
