  1. In terms of trading into the 1st round, I think a realistic trade would be with San Francisco, since they do not have a pick in Rounds 2-4. I do not think they would trade into the 1st unless there's a QB they really like is available that they can get the 5th year option on. 


    San Francisco receives: #34, #122 = 610 points 

    Indianapolis receives: #31 = 600 points 


    The highest we could realistically move into the 1st round is Atlanta's pick at #16, but would cost us both of our seconds. 


    Atlanta receives: #34, #44 = 1,020 points

    Indianapolis receives: #16 = 1,000 points 


    Trading back from #34 is not entirely unrealistic. I have seen the idea of trading back with Cleveland for pick #41 if they wanted to move up.  


    Cleveland receives: #34, #122 = 610 points 

    Indianapolis receives: #41, #112, #187 = 617.4 points 


    Like you said, general managers are not going to follow this chart religiously, but it is a helpful guide that illustrates realistic trading scenarios. 

  2. I remember him being a decent player in Oakland. Haven't heard much from him since, but he should be a decent depth player. Hasn't been terrible the past three seasons: 



    52 tackles, 1 INT, 1 FF, 4 PD, 1 Sack  



    74 tackles, 1 INT, 2 FF, 8 PD, 1 Sack 



    84 tackles, 9 PD

    what about guy with the pats> was that grigs or ballard?

    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.

    I liked John Simon while he was here, sad to see him cut in 2018. I know he didnt fit what we were moving to but good solid player.

    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. 

  5. 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.

    The Eagles would give up a 3rd round pick and a starting receiver only to pick up later round picks? It's usually picks + player for earlier picks, not later.

    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.  


    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. 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. 

  9. 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. 

  10. 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.

    Personally, I think you are correct in your assessment of what it would take to get Carr. The Raiders aren't getting a first rounder for him IMO (might require pick 44 and a second rounder next year though instead of a second and third this year). And I am a fan of going after Carr. I like that better than rolling the dice for a rookie, even one as talented as Love or Herbert. 


    I'd also take Kinlaw with the 13th pick and grab the best available WR with the 34th. You've then dealt with the team's three most critical positions of need via the draft and FA (love the Hargraves pickup as well). 


    I would take another look at all the WR depth you've accumulated. Funchess and Johnson and Fountain plus a FA and a draft pick. And then you have Ty and Pascall and Campbell. Too many. 


    Thanks for your hard work on this. Very entertaining. 

    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.
