What About signing one of the old corners to be our #2


Recommended Posts

Samuel is old zone guy. I am interested to see our CB's. Want to get a look at Cox see if Price developed at all after a year on the PS he is 6'2 should be close to 200lbs by now and runs 4.4 forty.

 

We have Davis Toler Butler Gordy I think those guys are on the 53 now I really want to see Price play. I know that might seem crazy but he has size speed needed to add strength spent a year on PS so he knows he system let's see what he has. Maybe nothing but I am interested

Price doesn't run a 4.4 especially after bulking up, and he was the UCLA defenses whipping boy..

His best time at the combine was 4.4 not sure anyone knows what he runs now I would guess it isn't as fast

Here were his strengths coming out according to NFL.COM Has prototypical height for an outside corner. Matches up well with tall receivers with his length, can use those long arms to press off the line, maintain contact down the sideline, and knock away passes in front of his man without interfering. Also wraps his long arms around receivers quickly after the catch to drag them down. Possesses enough short-area foot quickness to stay with receivers on inside and outside routes when playing on the line. Succeeds in playing the ball and making tackles in trail coverage. Good hip flexibility for his size, can turn-and-run with most receivers when in balance. Flashes excellent ball skills, can extend from his frame to bring in poor throws for the interception whether in man or zone.

 

I would just like to see the kid play pre season is coming.

Grigs keeps saying they aren't better than what we have here now he has to be talking about someone. Price sounds like he might have made strides on the PS if he didn't he will get cut but the size and speed I'd like to see him a year later

Samuel is done, but I wouldn't mind Jabari Greer at all. It's not going to happen though. For some reason Pags and Grigs are obsessed with Toler. Wish we had signed Grimes instead last year. Imagine that CB duo.

Samuel's weakness is getting burned too much on the deep route. He always has had this problem actually, even in his prime he'd give up the long TDs. Would get burnt even more now with age. Very good ball skills but I wouldn't sign him unless it was cap friendly.

    • 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.
