Your perfect offseason. (F.A. and Draft)


Recommended Posts

Thought this would be interesting. What would your ideal offseason be? Free Agency and the draft. Realistic as possible. Mine would be....

Bring back Vontae, Adam V, Boomstick, Brown, and then Reitz and Mcglynn (for depth) Then sign....

Brandon Spikes

Arthur Jones (love this guy)

Jairus Byrd

Alex Mack

Then I would love to somehow get Roby in the second. Not sure about the 3rd on yet. I would really like to see us make a run at Orakpo, but I think Grigs will stick with Walden and Werner (Whose getting better by the way) Or dump Toler and get Shields, but I don't see that happening either. Its not looking like we need a wide out. I'm really excited about Rogers, and Whalen.

FA: Re-Sign the ones who matter. Cut Samson Satele

Draft: Draft every Alabama player (except McCarron) especially their offensive linemen

 

How many players that have come out of Alabama in the last 8 years have actually been good?Eddie Lacy and Evan Mathis?

Eddie Lacy

Trent Richardson (Rookie year not so much here in Indy since he's new lol)

Chance Warmack isn't too bad

The tackle in San Diego is good

Hightower is solid

But I'd take CJ Mosley in this draft. He's gonna be nice. And any Alabama interior linemen is better than every interior lineman we have here

We will be outbid for Byrd by Oakland.

Then that means he wants money, not wins. I never understood players who do that. Why would you pick money over winning? Stupid imo.

Like Greg Jennings, who would want Christian Ponder throwing to them?!

There is nothing special about the defensive linemen for Alabama. Not one of the could hold an old Cory Redding's jock.

I'd take Mosley, but he's still being overrated imo.

I mean I understand you have bills and all. But a $60 million contract for a bad team? I'd take a $5million to play for the Colts. At least we'll win. The fact that you're making millions you're already making more than pretty much 80% of americans

Walden has $4M guaranteed for 2014. Would someone trade for him at that $$?

About half our Cap Space comes from all the lower tier backups and special teamers who have to be resigned or replaced.

We resign some of our better FA`s and it is iffy for us to sign much in the Top Tier Range. Always interesting and a favorite time of the football year, when you have Cap room!!!

So, let me get this straight. You are willing to let Bethea go for a player that will cost us A LOT more money and is only a couple of years younger. Is Antoine not playing good enough? Because you're watching a different player than I am. He is playing at a Pro Bowl level right now and you're willing to let him walk. Don't think so. Use some of that money to upgrade the D-line and O-line. Redding is getting up there in years (we need inside pass rush) and Franklin is gone. Arthur Jones (good idea) or Ziggy Hood would be good additions. I just don't think safety is a priority.

No you wouldn't. I would take less in the NBA or Baseball, but not on the 2nd contract in the NFL.

lolno. Bethea is getting picked on a lot and missing a bunch of tackles.

Byrd is a better player than Antoine has ever been.  And Bethea is not playing at a pro bowl level right now, if that were the case, then I might make the pro bowl.

Antoine Bethea is NOT playing at a Pro Bowl level. Don't let those 2-3 big hits on Sunday fool you. That was his best game in awhile. Arguably his best all season. I think we should definitely look for his replacement. Maybe Ha-Ha Clinton Dix or..... what other safeties are coming out this year?

Any Florida state safeties? Their defense is pretty solid imo

Its the whole list....impressive by itself.  Not really meaning to argue with you, and not an Alabama fan.  Law of large numbers is in play here - lot of really good players, and a lot of so so players.

Shall we compare stats?

 

Byrd   45 tackles   1 sack  4 INTs    respectable

Bethea  109 tackles   1 sack  1  INT   yeah, you're right dump him

    • That's on the upper end of WR2 money. Gonna say their calcs are off lol... Pascal is a great depth guy, but IMO he's too much of a tweener. Runs great routes, but isn't fast, and lacks some of the measurables. If he was faster, he'd make a great slot or Z. If he were bigger, he'd make a great X. He's just caught in between as a small X or slow/big slot. I'd say he's more 3/4, than 4/5. I'd love to keep him as that 4 guy. Just my opinion, but I think he'd make a good possession slot. Burton is getting those reps now. Will be interesting to see the re-shuffle once Pittman gets back at X.
    • Yup. Has zero to do with race, and everything to do with his ability to read, progress, etc.. Good guy and all, just not very good. Wasn't really that good in college either. He's likely better off in another scheme to be honest where there is less focus on reads and progressions. Chud's O was probably better suited for him as it's more throw-to-spot, than read, progress, and make a bunch of decisions. But to bring race into the discussion is silly given most of the top QBs in the league (Mahomes, Wilson, Jackson, Prescott, Watson, etc.). Nobody cares about that.
    • https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/zach-pascal-22405/market-value/   i can’t believe Pascal’s perceived contract value is being shown at 8.4 million avg and 4yrs. That is a lot of money for a guy who really hasn’t put together an entire season or even really half of a season with numbers that make you feel he has more to his ceiling. He at times has made some plays and looked like is he breaking out and then he levels back out. He is a usable 4/5th receiver imho but nowhere near 8 million $/yr. wow! 
    • He wasn't horrible. He had the lowest completion rate of DBs in his limited time. He did look lost at times, but that's to be expected for a rook changing positions. Keep in mind Tell was a FS at USC, and converted to CB last year. He's built like a tall corner, so filling in for Moore at NB probably wasn't ideal. Can he play NB, IDK. He was never physical in college. He's also not fast (4.6ish). He did score well in agility in the shuttle though.   I really don't know where he'll fit. Not fast enough IMO to play CB1 or CB2. Not sure if he's physical enough to play NB or SS. Probably fine to play split safety in a two high. If he could toughen up, could be good at NB, dime, or SS, but he was never that guy in college. Perhaps a rona year hitting the weights will help. 
    • Brissett was given every opportunity to prove himself to the coaches and GM and he failed.  He's a good back up QB and that is where he is at.  He had 2 seasons and was given a huge pay check.   He is an average starter at best.   Bringing race into this discussion is stupid.
