Frank Gore and Andre Johnson heading to Indy (Report)


Recommended Posts

Hmm Pierre Garcon is a UFA.......Wonder what his asking price is......Would be well worth the look to match him up with Luck with TY and Nicks and Moncrief assuming he makes the jump, He would come over here and likely be an instant 1000 yard receiver if he stays healthy, He is younger then Johnson.....Probably out of our price range though, He left on good terms and with Luck he might be persuaded to come back....Though I'd expect he wants to get PAID a hefty amount

 

 

Where are you seeing that Garcon was cut ?

Hmm don't know why that says he is a FA, He is still listed on the Redskins webpage

Right now the major WR free agents are AJ, Dwayne Bowe, and Jeremy Maclin (though Maclin looks to be a Chief in all but the ink). Bowe could be an interesting pick up if AJ falls through, but Johnson is clearly the prize here at WR.

Guys it doesn't look to good. Please someone give me some hope. I always so excited when I heard gore and Johnson were on the jet to indy not because of gore, because of JOHNSON. Now it looks like its not gonna happen.

In light of the Patriots losing Revis and possibly Browner(Talib last season), it's important we get this done.  This is how the rivalry could possibly revert back in our favor, back to the pattern when we won 5 out of 6.  The Pats could potentially go from being able to lock us down completely, as they did in the AFC Championship, to having serious problems covering us.  For a variety of reasons, that's exactly what happened between 2004 and 2005 when the rivalry turned in our favor.

I agree

Can someone tell me why this is going wrong. AJ want to be on a contender, so he doesn't even care about how much money he gets. The colts have a lot of cap space anyway. Luck is the best young QB in the league. He would be at least the #2WR on the team, and this is the easiest division in the NFL, so why is Grigson messing this up? Please somebody cool me down.

    Sources say DeMarco Murray's preference was to join the #Colts. Will be interesting to look back as the years go on. Gore vs Murray.

guess we were expecting him to sign asap but the waiting has thrown it into a panic on some level lol....I'm still confindent that it'll happen.

 

Johnson is smart and is just weighing his options before signing.

I hope you're right.  I really want Andre in a Colts uniform!

Crickets....

Trying to hold firm in the old saying no news is good news is getting harder

 

In this case it's not.  He's been in Indy since yesterday.  If they don't have him signed on the dotted line by now then at the very least negotiations are going bad and there is a good chance he's looking elsewhere.

I agree; he's been in Indy a while I guess. Gore was 1,2,3 compared to this.

He had his physical before the negotiations started. What if something popped up that is effecting the deal?

Very possible. Could just be something where he likes our offer but wants to see what other offers are out there.

I think Gore just had his Eagles offer in hand and just told Grigs to match it.

 

With Johnson there was going to be more back and forth.  But it has been going on for a while.

    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player. 
    • Again, I don’t doubt one bit he can turn out to be a good player. He has the traits. I watched him often when he was at Stanford... his name was not foreign to me come draft time. I was excited about Ballard loading up at linebacker which is a position we have plugged guys off the street before.    I just simply called out the inconsistency of saying he could be a good as Leonard (again, highly, HIGHLY unlikely) and then turn around saying that he could be “pretty good.”    do you know who didn’t need time to be great? Darius Leonard. THAT is the difference. Give Leonard time and see where he goes. My guess is the Hall of Fame.
