A nugget. Colts are not pursuing Mebane.

Also there has been nothing public on moss as of yet..but that move would be splashier than front row seats @ sea world!! thank you, thank you (was also gonna go w a Gallagher concert, but they both work)

Is it just me or does the Colts front office seem content with just winning the south and making the playoffs? There is no excuse in having arguably the best QB in NFL history yet more times than not we fail to even win one game in the playoffs. I agree with their developing their own players philosophy but you still gotta compliment that with a couple FA signings and/or acquiring players thru trades.

I'd be cool with taking a chance on Harris. He'd still be an upgrade over what we have, and if he doesn't work out, just cut him. We wont lose much for picking him up. If I rememebr correctly, he was pretty much it on the bears Dline for awhile and was still fairly productive. He wont get doubled a whole lot with Freeney and Mathis flanking him.

On walter football site it said he resigned with seattle for 5yrs and 25 million. If he is as good as people say on here, i don't know why we didn't try to get him. I'd rather have him then some of our own free agents.

Another Mebane thread?

Thank god he's been signed, maybe we can move on to blather over other wishful wants that we'll never get.

I want to see how Moala and Mathews progress as they gain more experience. They played decently last season, especially Moala. Hopefully they can become difference-makers on defense

I don't think you should expect to see that much improvement and progress out of Matthews. Moala still has a tone of potential, but Matthews... not really. He's not going to get that much playing time, and he may not even make the team. I can see Moala becoming a really good DT, but I can't see Matthews becoming a starter or a difference maker...ever.

25 Million for 5 years that would have been an affordable price for the colts especially since they cut Diem.

I know 5 mil a year for an amazing DT. That would have been exactly what the doctor ordered in my book. Too bad Peyton's deal wasn't done so we can't pull the trigger.

    • Yeah, Luck was reckless with his body. Which I think shortened his career. He also got tired of constantly rehabbing all the time. Yes, they need to teach AR to slide and don’t take those hits. 
    • I hope this works out for him and his wife. 
    • You don’t have to convince me Roseman is good at his job.   I literally said so in the post you felt necessary to respond to.    He’s very good at his job.   But he makes mistakes too as all GMs do.   That’s something that many here don’t understand.   
    • Hopkins is a million times better team player than AB. OBJ just got drafted by a bad team with a fading QB, and has been great apart from the recent injury and time-off. My point is, Hopkins has not shown any signs of being slowed down yet.
    • Agholor was hand picked by Chip Kelly, Roseman was not having control over that draft, IIRC.   Yeah, everyone will have misses. What separates Roseman from all other GMs and puts him in rarefied air is he doesn't restrict himself from getting high priced free agents to build a strong contending team even with unstable QB position, while being willing to Max out all the cap space he could. Hurts was not a proven quality QB last off-season, but their GM still had every other position fortified with quality starters and depth. He replenishes  RB room for cheap and with quality depth, and spends money on impact positions while drafting trenches 8 out of 10 times in the first round and mostly drafting there well. He fleeces other GMs very well on offloading contracts and getting great free agents at right time from right team. So many moves just don't work out by luck year after year. He's a very good grip on where to spend money and how to keep the roster a championship contender even with unanswered questions at QB position for last decade.    He does so much so well that his misses are negligible in the larger picture. He missed on Jefferson, but he got AJ and Smith, and now they're not going to lose sleep over that miss.
