Ahmad Bradshaw visiting Colts/Colts now in 'heavy negotiations' with Bradshaw again. (merge)

 Wrong delone carter is the one that will be getting cut off thank god when that happens

I'll take D. Brown over Delone Carter all day.  At least we know Brown has the speed to take one to the house on occasion.  I am still waiting for the first big play from Delone Carter.  He was brought in to be a short yardage back but has disappointed in that role in my opinion and he also has problems holding on to the football.  A back field of Ballard, Bradshaw and Brown sounds pretty good to me.  Introducing Andrew Luck and The Killa B's.

Why? Vaughn isn't that bad for a dime back/back up.

Davis,Toler,Butler, are guarantees and Price and Swanson looked great at camp.  We traded for Gordy most likely he'll stay as well, Vaughn will be the odd man out because we aren't going to carry more then 6 CB's.

Just cause we traded for Gordy doesn't mean he automatically stays. We traded for Vaughn too I do believe

Get back to me when they look good in training camp.....not the shorts and helmet OTAs. Hopefully they can beat him out, but I'm not counting on it.

When Gordy was on the field he played well as a dime CB. Vaughn had his chances he was bad every game he played in.

We'll see what happens. I personally hope we keep Gordy cause he has dreads. Certain hairstyles bring out talent in player's (TK's superstition haha)

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports the Colts and free agent Ahmad Bradshaw are negotiating a contract, and it "looks like a deal will get done."

Bradshaw is in Indy at this very moment. The Indianapolis Star also believes the Colts' interest in the 27-year-old is "serious," not routine tire-kicking. The fit couldn't be better. The Colts' backfield lacks talent, and Bradshaw could easily take over lead-back duties from Vick Ballard. Bradshaw is perfect for OC Pep Hamilton's West Coast offense as a supreme blocker and pass catcher. We could hear something by the end of the night.

Nice highlight reel TK85, but you have to remember 1 thing: Don't fall in love with a players previous great RB execution. GMs & the medical staff must pay him only for what Bradshaw can do now on the field.

I fall into this trap too sometimes myself my friend. :thmup:

I'm already aware SW. But doesn't hurt to look at "what could be" haha

Right now Bradshaw is better RB  then Ballard for at least  the next 2 years. I know both will split carries but if Bradshaw is healthy week 1 will he start over Ballard?

 

Yes. Only reason I think VB doesnt start is familiarity with the system, if thats possible after one season lol.

What doesn't anyone like Ballard? I think Ballard had amazing year last year and will be even better this year with a better offensive line.

If they sign him does this mean Donald Brown will be cut? Bradshaw is definitely a number one running back....

Bradshaw is in a completely different league from Ballard.

I personally like Ballard a lot. But think Bradshaw would be a great pick-up if he stays healthy. I still think Ballard would have lead role with Bradshaw still getting a lot of carries(60/40 split between them). Probably cut Carter.

I think Carter was going to be cut anyway.  This is more on Brown.  If Williams makes the team, there's no way we're keeping 4 RBs and a FB.  Brown would be odd man out IMO.

Bradshaw, Ballard, Brown, Havili. How would Brown be odd man out?

We kept 4 rb's and a FB last year  but I think Carter was gone anyway and like you say this probably puts Browns job in doubt at the very least

So numerous people have commented on Ballard and Carter's fumble history. I wonder how they feel about Bradshaws. 3 fumbles last year, 7 two years before that!

Did the same as brown but had more fumbles.

I can't see Williams making the team over Brown as a 7th round pick... Especially with this being a contract year for DB. It would be too easy to stash Williams on the PS... He'd be pretty safe there, IMO, but I wouldn't trust him at this point to be the change of pace back... no experience and not really an NFL body... I'd need to see some evidence before I see him as more than just a speedy return guy...

who else do you expect to KR? besides williams is just as much a home run hitter as brown at cheaper the cost. there is nothing brown does that our other backs cant. might as well just trade him.

I'm not.

 

At this point, I'd take Brown over Williams, if I were forced to choose. Not sure Williams has the body to be an NFL running back, and I wouldn't want him on the field on third down because he can't pass block. His major contribution this year would be special teams, and I don't know that we'd get rid of someone who can play three downs in favor of a return man.

 

I'm rooting for Williams, but he'd be out before Brown. As of right now.

AS much as I like Brown and Ballard, they'd sit a lot behind Bradshaw..

 

two 1,000-yard years......a guy in his prime...catches a lot of passes, too...

 

/////playing most games indoors or in warm weather..he might do even better..

 

    Dont let him leave town...

 

For that matter, dont let Kimberly Jones leave town either...

he's our return man

 

Williams is just another player with a chance at making the roster. And he's still practice squad eligible, so it's not like he wouldn't be retained in some capacity.

    • Personally, I don’t think he did much of anything that warrants suspension. All he might have done was punish his kid, and if that’s illegal, the world is getting too soft. However, it’s just things that have happened in the past that make me second guess everything, so personally I would have handed out a suspension just so I wouldn’t get complaints and everything from people about how this case is “no better than Zeke’s”. It’s more about keeping the public happy, though I think the entirety of this thing is a joke and parents spanking their child isn’t something that should mean suspension. 
    • Actually it says "it is believed" that we did. He also believes we haven't spent squat and have MOST of our Cap $$$ still available. NOT!
    • Due diligence.  Kick the tires on anything you can and maybe you catch lightning in a bottle. 
    • Mack got $90M gtd...I can't see Clowney getting close to that. I think it would probably be ~$60-65M...which is what Lawrence and Clark both got...and maybe not even that much.    It's not my money...but I would do it. The Colts have the money...and I don't think the Colts will find a better player to add to the team in FA...Clowney is a 3x consecutive Pro Bowler with double digit sack upside...heading into his prime...whose skill sets fits perfectly into a position where they have a long-term need.    To put it another way...I would much rather give Clowney a deal and add him to this team to try and win a Super Bowl...than spend that cash on extending guys 1-2 years before they are due. The Colts have a nice 3-4 year window where they can be a lot more aggressive.   Signing someone like Clowney will make a dent...but it won't hurt them long-term. There is a very good chance this team will have left upwards of $80M on the table over this four-year period. Right now, they have to spend $44M in cash next offseason just to get 89% (using OTC and estimating a $10M increase for the salary cap). They will make that up for sure (in FA and extensions)...but they have the flexibility to commit to a player like Clowney. I get being lean during those first two years...but not now.   The key for me would be the draft capital. If it's only one of those 2nds...I am very intrigued.
