*Official* FA Tampering Window Thread.


Recommended Posts

I thought it was tomorrow afternoon?

Even so, I'm excited for this FA period.

I think you're right. For some reason, the article I looked at was titled that it started at midnight, but when I clicked the link it actually said noon. Weird.

In 15 hours (12:00 PM EST) the official tampering window opens. Teams can contact players agents about potential deals.

 

Like the new sig Dustin............  Good stuff, will be missed considerably.

Luck. And by that I mean Andrew and actual luck.

 

And that's how much you know about football.

 

You honestly think we've won 36 games the last three years due to Andrew Luck and luck.....        :facepalm:

Ryan Grigson w/ cap space, what could go wrong? Everything

I guess your memory is very poor. His first draft got him the GM of the year. He performed a masterpiece with his first draft with huge dead cap space. He has replaced 48 players in three years. His team has advanced deeper into the playoffs each season. You say Luck and luck? I don't care how good luck is he didn't do it all by himself. No QB does. As far as luck every team that makes the playoffs has some of that throughout the season. Did the Seahawks have luck making the super bowl? Did the Patriots have luck in the super bowl? Is it possible for you to actually think about some of the comments you make? I think a lot of us Colts fans would feel real lucky if you could make a comment that made sense.

I am anxious to see what the offers are for McCourty. My only hope is that he does not go to a division rival if he does in fact leave. Have to believe he will take any offers to the Pats to see if they will either match or come close to matching but I am not hopeful. I don't think Bill sees spending $8-10 mil on a safety as a good value prop.

I agree with you but we all know it wasn't luck that the Patriots got to big dance, it was "cheating" , again and krafts money to save them...

Bruh.  Really?  For as great as he is, Luck has also cost the team games as well.  I love that we have him, wouldn't want anyone besides Luck, but we didn't make it to the AFCCG with Luck beating Denver all by his self.  The Defense tore up Peyton.  Thats just one example.

 

 

Stop trying so hard to be so negative, you come off as ignorant, a malcontent and juvenile.

 

Grigs has made bonehead decisions, but so has every other GM and for only being on the job for 4-5 years and getting to the AFCCG; not too dang bad if you ask me.

He wasn't referring to the draft. He was talking free agency....where Grigson has made very questionable moves.

To be fair, a large part of that win total is on Andrew. Not saying that it's just about one guy, but I do think this team would've gone below .500 last season without him.

Some haven't worked out. Some have. Some of it was out of the control of the GM. I'm not an apologist but I think he's done a pretty fair job in FA. If Don Thomas doesn't get hurt 2 years in a row we might be talking about what a great deal he was. If Cherilus hadn't played hurt most of this season I think we all are saying that Cherilus was a good pick up. The thing that Grigson has done well is that he's structured contracts so that if they player doesn't work out we can cut them without a lot of dead cap. Calculating risk

I must agree with you there. He's a special type, much like Peyton and that pretty boy in Foxboro who makes their teammates better

Mods. lock this or delete this thread and start again. This thread should be about anticipation of 1/2 hour from now, calls start coming in and rumors leaked and yet here we are talking about how Griggs will mess this up and others defending him. Delete this or lock it and lets start again

But those guys had extensive injury histories. He knew that when he signed them.

Btw guys, don't expect to hear anything ground-breaking today. The biggest news will probably be cuts (Ngata) and re-signings. Don't expect to hear about any handshake deals.

Cherilus was a risk because of his known knee problems

While I liked the Thomas signing, I thought it was insane not to pick up another veteran guard this off season in case of another Thomas injury.

Grigson do a fine job in the way he had the contracts structured, I wish he would have chosen better/more proven players. I this year's FA market is big for Grigson....he can't have as many whiffs.

Bummer. When do the handshake deals start leaking out?

I guess we'd have to go back and look to see who else was available at the time he signed those guys and if there were other options that fit our scheme. I know Cherilus had knee issues. I think the first year he was here he did a fine job. This year he struggled and I think he was not 100% most of the year. I think Cherilus was a risk Grigson was willing to take. I believe that even now we could part with Cherilus and save considerable cap space if that's the direction they want to go. But, I understand, I don't like taking risks on guys who you know have issues staying healthy. But, there's a reason they weren't re-signed by their own team.

I think I have had the (dis)pleasure of reading all 107 of your posts.  Pretty sure all of them have been in same bad neighborhood of this one.

Couldn't agree more. Take your unrelated debates elsewhere, please.

    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
    • I still have Patrick Jones II at the top of my early 2021 NFL Draft Board.  Would be happy to acquire either Weaver or Jones.  Other top names have seen but truthfully haven't been impressed with them as have been with these two players at RDE.
    • No one gets stoned anymore in civilized societies!   Wait, that didn't sound right...
    • We will need to hire a crime scene cleaning company to extract all the Titans' blood from the field turf at Lucas Oil Stadium
