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....

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.

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!

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.

    • NFL.com's Profile   Draft Grade: 5.30 NFL BACKUP OR SPECIAL TEAMS POTENTIAL Draft Projection: Round 5 College: Mich St Position: S Height: 5-11 Weight: 213 40 Time: 4.52     BIO: Willis was named the Ann Arbor News Michigan High School Player of the Year in 2014 as a running back after he covered nearly 3,000 yards on the ground and scored 31 touchdowns. He didn't end up at Ann Arbor for college, signing with Sparty. Willis started 3 of 9 games played as a true freshman (11 tackles), but his season ended before the Big Ten Championship Game due to a broken foot. He started one game in 2016, making 30 tackles in 11 contests overall. An opening occurred in MSU's secondary for 2017, and Willis took advantage. He garnered honorable mention All-Big Ten honors that season, accumulating 71 tackles, 5.5 for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, and three pass breakups. He repeated his honorable mention all-conference performance as a senior, posting 84 tackles, two interceptions, and 10 pass breakups in 13 starts for the Spartans.   Overview: Team leader known for his leadership and work ethic, Willis has been a reliable performer with a good nose for the football. However, he's an average athlete with below-average speed who needs to keep plays in front of him, so finding a roster spot on the next level could be a challenge. His high football character and consistent effort level, give him a shot at finding work as a backup with special teams value .   Strengths: Praised for exceptional character Good size with compact build and desired play strength Plays with consistent motor and effort all game long Runs the alley with accurate map to the ball carrier Reliable and plays under control Reads quarterback's eyes for early indicators in coverage Sees the entire field from deep safety Handled some slot cover duties in sub-packages Good awareness from short zone and responds quickly to throws   Weaknesses: Below-average athlete lacking explosiveness Top-end speed is a concern Struggles to range over the top from deep zone Slow to open hips and sprint with early speed Tight strider with below-average burst to close Limited lateral agility to maintain man coverage Very modest ball production    
    • 1. Again that is how people view QBs rather that is fair or not   2. Im referring more from a talent perspective   3. Its more to justify Luck as a talent.
    • I like that there's evidently a clear plan for developing and using him, and I think that's true for everyone they added this year. We'll see how it plays out, but I expect that they'll be trying to put guys in position to excel, not trying to force them to do something they aren't good at.   I think this shows with the Funchess signing. Definitely not my favorite acquisition, and I wanted them to go in a different direction, but Warren Sharp posted splits showing how Funchess performed on certain routes, and compared it with how Luck produces when throwing to those routes. It seems like an ideal match for our offense, and I think the front office and coaching staff identified that together, and went out and got him. I don't think they'll ask him to be a downfield burner, I think they're going to use him on curls, outs, and maybe slants, and I think it's going to add a dimension to the offense, especially on big downs when defenses play tight man coverage.    If they took a similar approach with the players they drafted -- what's the plan for this guy on our team, and how do we develop his traits so that he can excel in this role? -- it will show in the way they use them right away. Tell, Campbell, Willis, Banogu... all have traits that can be tapped into right away.
    • So I'm a little confused now. Are you basing your views on the roster that the QB is playing with instead of the QB himself? I don't see how you can say the AFC championship game on only had "3 great players."    If you ask me has Luck done more with less then some other QB's then that answer is 100% yes. But your question is How do you view Andrew without a championship?       Not how Andrew Luck will be viewed because he doesn't have great teams around him.
    • 1. If my aunt had a set, she'd be my uncle.  Marino didn't win 6 so who cares?   2. The larger point is I am lost on your arm talent argument.  Who cares who had the best arm?  That is only one small component of what makes an elite level QB.  Greg Maddux is a HoF pitcher and he had not close to the velocity of Kyle Farnsworth, who can only get into the HoF if he bought a ticket.  In an NFL comparison, Joe Montana did not have near the arm that Marino or Elway did but he is clearly among the best QB's ever to play the game. 3. I don't care about the Colts 2014 roster.  I know who was on the team and I don't think they would have been a good match up for the 1970 Steelers. I am simply saying that you don't really know if it was the worst roster to make the AFCCG in history.  It's over an over the top argument simply made to prove a point you can't make otherwise.
