Who is Andre Grigson?

 

lol...I would expect several suiters....Seattle, Baltimore, and us....I just hope NE stays out of it. What do you guys think is a fair deal. I'm sensing a little more than what we gave Reggie...and 3 yrs.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! How disrespectful would that be to sign Andre, and not resign Reggie who has played his entire career for the Colts. Andre has been dropping alot of passes in the last couple of years. This topic needs to be transferred & merged with the Houston Texans form. You must be a fan.....

It was a business decision..

Johnson caught 85 balls last year with no QB.. He still has a few years left, Reggie? Who knows.

It's not disrespect, it's business. And if Johnson can help us win now..

Then sign him.

AJ will be 34 years old by the time next season rolls around. IMO I don't think he has much left in the tank. I could be wrong but who really knows.

He caught 85 balls and almost had 1,000 yards last season.

And no QB.

He still has a few good years left.

It would "absolutely not" be disrespectful to sign Andre. It would be a smart business decision. The Colts survived long before Reggie and will continue to survive without him. That's the nature of the NFL, every team moves on and will always move on unless the team folds.

No.  Ancient Andre is old and slow and has had more injury time these last couple of years.

 

For what it's worth....    I thought you were right, but wanted to see how much time AJ has missed...  so, I checked and was surprised...

 

In the last three seasons,  Johnson has only missed one game.    He's started 47 of the last 48 games.

 

Four years ago he missed about half the year -- started 7 games.

 

The year before that he missed 3 games.

 

So, it's not as bad as we thought...

 

Here's his full career profile...   just click on it...

OK.....

 

I'm putting this out there for all to answer if you like....

 

What are you willing to have Grigson pay to get Andre?

 

I'm guessing it will take something along the lines of 3/20 with roughly 10 guaranteed....

 

Everyone OK with that?

 

Is there a number where you'll say -- "No, at that price, I'll pass..."

 

Just askin....

Wouldn't really want to get to 8m/yr. Feel better at a good 6 or 7. Reggie was making ~6m per year (hometown discount no doubt). That said I would assume he gets more. And if he produces and we get a Superbowl I don't care how much we are paying him. I'd go 2 years max though. Or for sure front load the contract to be able to get out from under it if he gets too old.

I just feel like he's always one of those guys who is constantly on the injury report. I think my max for him would be like $5 Mil/YR but I think he has more value to NE or a veteran team that is all in for a SB right now. I'd prefer the Colts sign someone younger.

Gotta give Fitz some credit alot of his yards he was well covered not getting separation and got perfect back shoulder passes .

    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
    • Supplement with draft picks. Ballard has had a few rookies playing significant snaps every year...so we could assume the same this year. Plus...you have some  younger players who could take a step forward next season.  Also...there’s player for player swaps that can be explored.   I think you could easily replace everyone on that list except Houston and Rhodes. And I would keep MAC as a cheap TE2.   A big FA contract will put a strain on the cap...which is why a rookie QB would be huge. But I also think this is their chance to spend on a premium non-QB position or two.   But another way to burn cap space is to re-sign a bunch of outgoing vets...essentially paying more money for the same team components (in many cases). If that was a list of FAs...I would probably be interested in a few of them at most. But that’s just me...and I am sure other teams will be interested in each of them on some level...so this seems like a great chance to shift some cap space to quality (instead of quantity) and accrue some comp draft capital...even if it’s mid-late Day 3 picks.
    • Ok.   Appreciate the response.   I thought you were going to say they were typo’s, but apparently not.   Alright, we see it differently.  Nothing wrong with that.  It’s what makes the world go around.    Thanks again....
    • Some team will gamble on Hooker. He will only be 25 and he’s a former lottery pick with huge talent. A $7M AAV would put him just inside the top 15...just ahead of guys like Ricardo Allen, Vonn Bell and Tre Boston. I think a team would look to lock in a second year team option of sorts...but maybe not. Either way...he should have suitors and will have an opportunity to at least get a good one-year deal to rebuild value. Edit: Obviously this is assuming Hooker has recovered and can pass a physical. If not, then he probably gets half that and possibly might not even be signed until during the season.    Rhodes was a top 10 player last season...at a premium position. He produced a ton of value on his cheap pillow contract...and now he gets to cash in. With a very good track record (even at his age), he is going to command a nice 2-3 year deal to finish out his career. A $12M AAV would pay him just outside that top 10 range for CBs...and this deal is similar to the one that Haden signed with PIT after having a late-career resurgence.  Knowing Ballard...I am sure he would structure it in a way that they could get out after one year if Rhodes fell apart. But given the current state of the CBs...they almost have to re-sign him.
