Probably a very silly idea but if he can play FS and not get injured I would be fine giving him a look. His current Nfl status is "free agent" not retired so it seems to be a decent idea.

Not a decent idea. In fact a really bad idea that has less than zero chance of happening.

I like bob, I miss him he was my favorite player. Maybe he still has something left from his DPOY season, you never know since he has not played in a very long time.

Him not playing in a while probably says something about the caliber of player he is now.

Maybe we could get Bickett and Freeny back to just to get us thru Mathis suspension Bickett has really been resting and I hear Freeny will be cut

 

I don't think the coaches see S as big as a hole as the board does.

As one of Bob's biggest fans, I don't think he will play another snap in the NFL.  His body couldn't handle it and he's 33.  I would love to see him on the Colts as a positional coach or something, but he won't be playing.

 

Yeah, sign him as a coach or front office guy. But his career is over.

I'm a Sanders fan, he's an Iowa guy too which is one of the first things I liked about the Colts.  (The Polian era Colts gave a lot of Iowa guys a shot.)

 

But he's old in NFL terms and he hasn't played in a few years.  On top of that he was an injury risk when he was young.  

 

It just doesn't make much sense to try to bring him back as a player.

I loved watching Big Bob lay down the boom but with that style of play your body can only go on doing it for so long . In some off chance we did sign him I would not want to see him on the field until the playoffs then let him go wild .

Personally I would love it and from a business perspective, bringing a colt hero back for 1-2 more years would sell tickets and even jerseys. He would probably give the colts more revenue then his total contract would be worth. Bob Sanders will always be my favorite player to ever play in the nfl. Even if we signed him for a cheap back up role to help mentor the young guys I would be fine with that.

Lets not live in the past lol. Just cherish the memories he gave us....when he played.

A very nice way of letting any Bob Sanders fans out there down easy without making them feel foolish for even asking the question. Bravo Jules!

people the last time bob sanders was relevant was 7 years ago. let it go

Can we make a GIGANTIC billboard in gold leaf lettering that says that? Amen Brother Amen. 

 

Bringing Bob Sanders back, a great safety for us in his day, is like bringing whacky 80 hairstyles back. You can do it sure, but some things must fade away gracefully and completely for good reason. They ran their course and must disappear forever now NFL wise.

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
