  1. Under Grigson. Lawrence Guy was waived by the Colts in 2013 and the Chargers picked him up. Guy was waived right after his blocked field goal vs Seattle. Chargers waived him in 2014 and the Ravens picked him up. Had 4.5 sacks in 2015 for Baltimore, but only 1 sack in 2016. In 2017 Patriots signed him to a 4 year/$20 million deal. The last three seasons for NE, he has played in every game and started all but two of them. He has averaged around 60 tackles/year for NE, and had 3 sacks last year.
  2. 15 tackles in 11 games played this year. He seemed to be a decent special team/rotational player.
  3. Forgot about John Simon. He's been a decent player for New England. Had 4 sacks, an interception, and a forced fumble last year. He didn't really have a solid spot in Indy (4-3 OLB or 4-3 DE). Glad to see he's getting playing time in New England.
  4. I thought it would be interested to look at the players the Colts let walk in Free Agency, and the type of season they had after they left the Colts. 2017 S Mike Adams - Signed with Panthers: 69 tackles, 2 INT, 2 FF, 10 PD. Just retired. C Jonotthan Harrison - Signed with Jets: No real stats to measure lineman, but the last two years he has played all 32 games and started 18.

Played with Lions in 2019 and now signed with Jaguars this month. OLB Barkevious Mingo - Signed with Seahawks: 48 tackles, 1 Sack, 2 FF WR Donte Moncrief - Signed with Jaguars: 48 catches, 688 yards, 3 TD. 4 catches for 18 yards in 8 games with Steelers & Panthers in 2019. C Mike Person - Signed with 49ers: Played in 30 games the last two years and started all of them. Released this month. QB Scott Tolzien - Selected by the Birmingham Iron of the AAF in the 3rd round of the 2019 AAF QB Draft. Did not play. Now a Cowboys' coaching assistant.

CB Nate Hairston - Traded to Jets for Conditional 6th Round Pick: 24 tackles, 1 INT C/G Evan Boehm - Traded with 7th Round Pick to Dolphins for 6th Round Pick: Played 13 games, started 8.
  5. I guess there thought process is that they are giving the Colts compensation to take on his cap hit. Even with that, I don't think they would give us their 3rd. While I think he could be an upgrade, it would probably be better to take someone at #34 or #44.
  6. Had 15 tackles and 1 sack last year, though he did not get much playing time with that stout 49ers front.
  7. While it does not appear to be a legitimate source, this account has been in on a lot of the off-season moves. He's getting older but is an upgrade over what we have. Eagles would have a big dead cap hit this year ($16,196,000) but would free up a lot of money for 2021, where they are currently projected to have - $19,931,107. Bleacher Report listed the Colts as potential trade targets (https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2877621-potential-trade-packages-landing-spots-for-alshon-jeffery) and suggested the proposed offer: Colts acquire Jeffery and 2020 third-round draft pick from the Eagles for 2020 fifth- and seventh-round draft picks.
  8. It appears we both posted the same thing at the same time lol. Though I posted in the news in the Draft, Scouting, and Free Agent Talk.
  9. The only thing I'd suggest is Harrison Hand in the 5th over Cephus. He's a solid zone CB from Temple that can play on the outside next to fellow Temple CB Ya Sin.
  10. Still some vets on the market. Taylor Gabriel, Demarcus Robinson, Rashard Higgins. It is a deep WR class so we should be able to grab one or two decent ones.
  11. Pete Rose's 4,256 hits. Ichiro had 4,369 hits in his entire professional career, but 1,278 of them were in Nippon Professional League in Japan.
  12. Based on Overthecap, Colts have ~ $21.6 M in cap space remaining. Trading Brissett would save ~ $15.8 M and cutting him would save ~ $8.9 M. Could also cut Hoyer now and save $3 M or designate him as a Post-June cut and save $4 M. Colts could potentially bring their cap space to between $32 M - $40 M.
  13. With acquisition of Rivers and Buckner, Colts filled their two highest positional needs at QB and 3-Tech DT. Colts were able to retain Castonzo, so that solves the OT issue for now, though we could still look to develop someone in the draft. According to Overthecap (with Rivers' $25M cap hit added), Colts have ~ $21.6 M in cap space remaining. Trading Brissett would save ~ $15.8 M and cutting him would save ~ $8.9 M. Could also cut Hoyer now and save $3 M or designate him as a Post-June cut and save $4 M. Colts could potentially bring their cap space to between $32 M - $40 M. There are still areas that the Colts can improve on, and I'm am going to list potential options and how we could acquire them. QB of the Future Jordan Love: Trade into 1st Jacob Eason: Trade into 1st or #34 Jake Fromm: 2nd round Jalen Hurts: 2nd Round Anthony Gordon: 3rd round James Morgan: 3rd or 4th round Wide Receiver Emmanuel Sanders: 2 Years/$20 M Devin Funchess: 1 Year/$6 M Nelson Agholor: 1 Year/$5 M Travis Benjamin: 2 Years/$8 M Rashard Higgins: 1 Year/$2.5 M Brashad Perriman: 1 Year/ $3 M Denzel Mims: 2nd Round Jalen Reagor: 2nd Round Brandon Aiyuk: 2nd Round Leviska Shenault Jr: 2nd Round Chase Claypool: 2nd Round Michael Pittman Jr: 2nd or 3rd Round Van Jefferson: 2nd or 3rd Round Collin Johnson: 3rd or 4th Round Antonio Gandy-Golden: 4th or 5th Round Quintez Cephus: 4th or 5th Round Jauan Jennings: 5th or 6th Round Tight End Tyler Eifert: 1 Year/ $5 M Cole Kmet: 2nd Round Thaddeus Moss: 2nd or 3rd Round Adam Trautman: 2nd or 3rd Round Hunter Bryant: 3rd Round Harrison Bryant: 3rd Round Brycen Hopkins: 3rd Round Albert Okwuegbunam: 3rd or 4th Round Offensive Tackle Josh Jones: 2nd Round Austin Jackson: 2nd Round Ezra Cleveland: 2nd Round Prince Tega Wanogho: 2nd Round Lucas Niang: 3rd Round Matthew Peart: 3rd Round Trey Adams: 3rd or 4th Round Hakeem Adeniji: 3rd or 4th Round Alex Taylor: 5th Round Charlie Heck: 5th Round Scott Frantz: 6th or 7th Round Jon Runyan Jr: 7th Round EDGE Jabaal Sheard: 2 Years/ $12 M Dante Fowler Jr: 2 Years/ $16 M Curtis Weaver: 2nd or 3rd Round Jonathan Greenard: 2nd or 3rd Round Alex Highsmith: 4th Round Kendall Coleman: 6th Round 1 Tech DT Linval Joseph: 2 Years/ $14 M A'Shawn Robinson: 2 Years/ $8M Damon Harrison Sr: 1 Year/ $7M Neville Gallimore: 2nd Round Raekwon Davis: 2nd or 3rd Round Leki Fotu: 3rd or 4th Round Jordan Elliott: 3rd or 4th Round Benito Jones: 4th or 5th Round Cornerback/Safety Eric Berry: 1 Year/ $5M Malcolm Jenkins: 2 Years/$14 M Daryl Worley: 3 Years/$21 M AJ Terrell: 2nd Round Jaylon Johnson: 2nd or 3rd Round Jeremy Chinn: 2nd or 3rd Round Cameron Dantzler: 2nd or 3rd Round Antoine Brooks Jr: 4th Round Harrison Hand: 4th or 5th Round Michael Ojemudia: 4th or 5th Round Geno Stone: 5th or 6th Round I'm sure there are others players that would fit as well, and I'm sure the contract projections are not entirely accurate. Regardless, this is just a list of potential fits for the Colts' remaining top needs.
  14. I feel like they really want Trevor Lawrence and will just ride this year out with Newton. If he's bad, they're in the Lawrence sweepstakes. If he's good, then they have their QB for the near future.
  15. Here are 3 potential off-season possibilities: Off-Season A Veteran Acquisitions Trade #13 to the Raiders for QB Derek Carr Key re-signings: OT Anthony Castonzo, WR Devin Funchess, DE Jabaal Sheard Key free agents: DT Javon Hargrave, S Eric Berry, CB Byron Jones Draft #34: WR Denzel Mims #44: DT Ross Blacklock #75: OT Matthew Peart #112: TE Albert Okwuegbunam #142: CB Harrison Hand #173: S Geno Stone #191: WR Jajuan Jennings #227: OT Jon Runyan Off-season B Veteran Acquisitions Key re-signings: OT Anthony Castonzo, DE Jabaal Sheard Key free agents: DT Shelby Harris, QB Philip Rivers, TE Austin Hooper Draft #13: QB Jordan Love #34: DT Neville Gallimore #44: WR Chase Claypool #75: CB Cameron Dantzler #112: DE Alex Highsmith #142: RB AJ Dillon #173: DT Khalil Davis #191: WR Antonio Gandy-Golden #227: OL Keith Ismael Off-season C Veteran Acquisitions Keep QB Jacoby Brissett Key re-signings: OT Anthony Castonzo, WR Devin Funchess Key free agents: DE Jadeveon Clowney, DT Maleik Collins, CB Daryl Worley Draft #13: DT Javon Kinlaw #34: TE Cole Kmet #44: WR Brandon Aiyuk #75: QB Anthony Gordon #112: OT Hakeem Adenji #142: CB Michael Ojemudia #173: WR Quintez Cephus #191: DE Kendall Coleman #227: OT Charlie Heck
  16. With the WR depth, in my head Hilton, Pascal, Campbell, Funchess, and a draft pick would be the 5 locks, with Johnson/FA/Fountain battling for the final spot on the roster. I really thought about letting Funchess walk, but I think they want to give him another chance. If there is no guaranteed money in his contract, they could even cut him before the season. You're not wrong in that 8 WRs might be too many, but I figured it would be better to bring in more and keep the best 5 or 6.
  17. Thanks for the responses. I think if the right EDGE player is there in the draft, Ballard will pull the trigger. I think DT is the more pressing need as really Autry and Stewart are the only options on the roster, but with Houston and Sheard's age I can see them grabbing an EDGE. I have high hopes for Turay and Banogu, so that's why I went towards DT over DE. Could definitely take an EDGE in the 4th over another DT.
  18. I found it tough to gauge Carr's trade value because I feel it's based on how badly Mayock and Gruden want to move Carr. Some Raiders websites (https://justblogbaby.com/2019/12/04/possible-trade-destinations-for-derek-carr-in-2020/3/) speculate Carr could be had with our early 2nd. That same website also had the Dolphins using their late first to get Carr. I think Carr is worth more than just a second. Point wise 44 and 75 would be equal to the 27th or 28th pick. They might want our 1st, which at that point I'm not sure I would make the deal. I would be fine with giving up 34 and 75. I agree that Carr can be an above average QB for us. Not everyone on here is on-board with Carr, but with him being 29 and coming off a really good year, I think he can come close to his 2016 version with our O-line and Mack. If Carr has the necessary help, I think he can push us into contention again.
  19. Thanks for the response. All things you pointed out are fair to disagree with. I initially had them taking Jeudy at #13, but I changed my mind by throwing in a trade back to pick up another second for Kmet. I hadn't really seen a mock where we took Jefferson, so I just wanted to mix it up a bit. Sort of the same thing with McDonald; he's sort of intriguing with his strong arm, but Gordon would definitely be the safer developmental QB to take in the middle rounds. I think Blacklock can be effective despite playing in TCU's scheme, but him and Madabuike are interchangeable in that spot. Gallimore would be a good fit as long as we get a solid 3-tech like Hargrave in free agency or draft Kinlaw. I was initially going to go OL in Round 4 but went with Fotu to have another 1-tech on the roster. If we didn't do the Carr trade and still had the 3rd, I think Matthew Peart would be a good option. If I did another mock, I would probably, would probably take Kinlaw at #13, take best WR available at 34, and then go after someone like Okwuegbunam in the 3rd or 4th. I had a tough time trying to gauge Carr's price tag. Tannehill was traded for a 4th at the age of 30, but he was not expected to be a starter like Carr. I went back to thread about Carr's trade value: Still couldn't really find a solid answer, so I ended up going with a 2nd and 3rd. A 2nd and a 3rd would be equal to the 27th or 28th pick, but I could definitely see them wanted #13 so they could have back-to-back picks in the 1st round. I think it depends on how willing Gruden & Mayock on moving on from Carr. I think they'd take a 2nd and 3rd (though they would probably want #34) if they sign a QB in free agency like Bridgewater or even Brady. I hadn't seen many Mock Off-seasons centered around Carr so I wanted to do want to see what it would look like. I feel like the main three options for the Colts this year are: trade for Carr, sign Rivers/draft Love, roll with Brissett again. They could still take Love with Brissett as the starter, but I think it's more likely if we sign a veteran QB in free agency to mentor Love.
  20. Starting Cap Space: $86,162,964 Releases QB Brian Hoyer – Saves $3M DL Margus Hunt – Saves $4M QB Jacoby Brissett – Saves $9M Cap Space after Cuts: $102,162,964 Re-sign Unrestricted Free Agents G Joe Haeg – 2 Years/$6.5M (2020 Cap Hit - $3.5M) DE Jabaal Sheard – 2 Years/$14M T Anthony Castonzo – 2 Years/$30M (Year 1 fully guaranteed - $15M) WR Devin Funchess – 1 Year/$7M RB Jonathan Williams – 1 Year/1.325M G Josh Andrews – 2 Years/4.5M (2020 Cap Hit - $2.5M) Restricted Free Agents WR Marcus Johnson – RFA Original Round Tender ($2.144M) Exclusive Rights Free Agents WR Daurice Fountain – ERFA Tender (660K) S Rolan Milligan – ERFA Tender (660K) Money Spent on Own Free Agents: $39,789,000 Cap Space Remaining: $62,373,964 Trade Raiders trade QB Derek Carr to Colts for #44, #75 Carr Cap Hit - $18.9M Remaining Cap Space: $43,473,964 Free Agents DT Javon Hargrave – 4 Years/$60M ($35M guarenteed) A disruptive 3 Tech on the DL is something the Colts need desperately. Autry has been solid but is also entering a contract year. Stewart did well this year but is more suited as a 1 tech. Pittsburgh will most likely have to choose between Dupree and Hargrave with their cap situation. Hargrave can play any position along the line, despite playing as a 3-4 NT in Pittsburgh. Hargrave can transition into a 4-3 3-Tech in the Colts' scheme and be a disruptive pass rusher. $15M/year might be a bit high but that approximately what the market value is for a young, free agent DT. Usually the Colts do not bring in any big name players, but I believe this is the year Ballard goes after a top tier player at a position of need. S Eric Berry - 1 Year/$3M There has been talk that Eric Berry and the Colts have displayed interest. Didn't play last year, but said he wanted to sit out a year to get healthy. Injuries have been a concern and he's 31, but even if he becomes 75% of the player he once was, he would be an excellent addition in the secondary and a mentor to our young safety group. Plus, he's good friends with Justin Houston. WR Rashard Higgins - 1 Year/$2M Fell out of favor in Cleveland. Had a decent season in 2018 with 572 yards and 4 TDs. Bring him in to compete for one of the final WR spots. Money Spent on Free Agents: $20,000,000 Cap Space Remaining: $23,473,964 NFL Draft Trade: Colts trade #13 to Eagles for #21, #53 Round 1 Pick 21: WR Justin Jefferson LSU Colts trade back in a WR heavy class and get their WR #2. Jefferson led the country with 111 receptions, was second in receiving touchdowns (18) and third in receiving yards (1,540). It helped being apart of LSU historic offense with Joe Burrow, but Jefferson is a versatile WR that has excellent ball skills and hands. Had a very good combine with a 4.43 40 time and 37.5" vertical jump. His main issue is route running, which I think he can work on at the NFL level with his superb pass-catching traits. Round 2 Pick 34: DT Ross Blacklock TCU Despite grabbing Hargrave in free agency, I think the Colts need to draft a DT on Day 1 or 2. Madabuike or Gallimore could be the pick here is well, but I prefer Blacklock over those two. Blacklock can play in any scheme and has the physical tools to a disruptive DT. His explosiveness and athleticism will help him to excel as a 3-tech in the Colts' scheme. Can become a building block defensive piece if he develops the necessary skills. Round 2 Pick 53: TE Cole Kmet Notre Dame With the departure of Eric Ebron, Colts need another vertical threat TE to play alongside Jack Doyle. Kmet runs smooth routes and has very good hands. His blocking needs to be improved on, but he has the physical tools to become an effective run blocker. He is not the fastest with a 4.7 40 time but is strong enough to tackles. Not as athletic as Ebron, but is definitely a stronger pass catcher. Round 4 Pick 112: DT Leki Fotu Utah Fotu will rotate with Grover Stewart as the 1-tech. Has elite upper-body strength and an impressive motor. Does not possess the leverage and block shedding to be an elite pass rusher, but will work well as a rotational 1-tech. Round 5 Pick 142: CB Harrison Hand Temple Hand is an outstanding in zone coverage with good length and physicality. Comes up to the line of scrimmage to make tackles on WR screens and outside run plays. He's a bigger CB that could potentially end up replacing Pierre Desir on the outside. Round 6 Pick 173: S Geno Stone Iowa Not going to lie, one of the main reasons I made this pick is because he is from my dad's hometown, like Malik Hooker. Stone does not possess fantastic athleticism, but is a smart player that anticipates routes and is a strong tackler. Also has decent ball skills in zone coverage. Round 6 Pick 191: QB Cole McDonald Hawaii Has the physical tools, mainly the strong arm, but lacks decision making. A low risk, high reward type of prospect if he can understand the mental side of the game. QB is not a pressing need with the trade for Carr, but it's good to grab a QB that can be developed into a decent backup. Round 7 Pick 204: OT Jon Runyan Michigan Son of the Eagles OT of the same name. Not the most athletic but is a very smart player. Can be a decent backup OL that could shift inside to guard. Money Spent on Draft Picks: $10,000,000 Cap Space Remaining: $13,473,964 Notes - I think Derek Carr can work well with the Colts. He's still young (29 at the start of next season) and has been a very accurate passer during his time in Oakland. Carr is an upgrade over Brissett and would put the Colts back in contention. Hasn't been as good as he was early in his career, but I think he can flourish with a change of scenery and new weapons and elite offensive line. I believe #44 and #75 is fair value for Carr. - I think the Colts are willing to give Funchess another chance this year. $7 million may be a bit too much but the Colts have the cap flexibility. - Hargrave is really the only major free agent signing due to the Carr trade. I still don't think Ballard will be overly aggressive in free agency, though you could say he would be aggressive in acquiring Carr and going after Hargrave. I expect a small free agency class and getting impavt players through the draft. - Kmet may not last until #53, but would be a great pick if he lands until the middle of the 2nd round. If he gets snagged earlier, I can see us going after Albert Okwuegbunam in the 4th. - I don't think CB is a pressing need quite yet, but I think we need to bring in another CB in Day 3 of the draft.
  21. http://www.nfl.com/labs/cfb247/jordan-love/jordan-love Saw this on the front page of NFL.com so I thought I'd share.
  22. Really wished he "officially" got a ring. Irsay gave him one even though he wasn't on that 2006 team, but Edge paved the way for the Colts to have success for many years. I hope we retire #32 some day.
