Colts and Charlie Johnson Struggle with Contract ((closed - signed w/other team))

Tom James of CBSSports.com Rapid Reports indicates that the Colts may be at an impasse with free agent tackle Charlie Johnson on a new contract. James suggests that Johnson is looking for a more lucrative deal than Indianapolis wants to offer. While the team may be able to lose Johnson and still field a young promising offensive line, keeping him significantly bolsters the starting unit and depth.

Well at least if the Colts release him, we could just replace him with a guy like Pollak or Devan.

alot of CJ's value is his versatlity position wise and given a chance betcha hes better at guard than at least 1 of the above

In end was hoping, after about half a season a line of

LT, Cast

LG McHendon / DeVan / Pollack

C Saturday / McClendon

RG Ijlana / NcClendon

RT Cj / >>>>>> with event Ijalana going to RT and Cj at RG

Charlie's value cannot be stated in a year like this. He has been the most consistent guy, with Saturday, the past few seasons and can play just about every position. You have no idea how these rookies will play, if Diem remains healthy, and if any of our OG's step up. He would be a very big piece of our puzzle this year.

I don't think the two signings are related. I think its just a case of Charlie wants more than the Colts think he is worth. Hopefully they meet in the middle.

Especially now with all of the signing buzz, folks like Manning and Diem leaving money on the table for the sake of the team. It'll be interesting to see what Bullitt and Addai signed for, as well. If CJ is gonna be a buzz kill and not come onboard then let him walk. I realize he was valuable but we have enough talent along the O-line to fill the void. If it goes that way let's spend it on defense. I'd love to have enough cap room to get Asante Samuel at 5.5M (I know I know...not holding breath but dreamin) and someone else....whoever would be an affordable upgrade anywhere on D.

Supposedly Bullit didnt cost that much & is only a 1 year and based on incentive performance so was at right price, Yeah CJ has done all we asked and would like some money for u it, He was the RT for virtually all of SB 41 as Diem went down quite early

He deserves something but dont know how high hes asking, MEET IN THE MIDDLE IS RIGHT & KEEP HIM

i had a feeling he would want a lot of moolah..hes better than avg whoever said that and hes versitle..that means more 2 teams not called the colts bcuz howard mudd made ever1 versitle..for the most part..

idk what i think about this..if we keep CJ that is great and our O-line looks solid

if we loose CJ..we got more money for the D..sign tommie harris..asante samuel..bolster our depth..somethin like 1 of those

if i had 2 guess hes prolly tryin 2 get around 6 mil

At least me calling him average is better then what pro football focus thinks about him!!

They said he was the 8th worst tackle in the whole league.

He's not a true L tackle, he is a guard. His value to Indy is his versatility. He can play every position on the line in pinch. Indy needs to bring him back for at least this season.

Exactly, he satisfactorily filled in for a failed UGOH

    • The only person over reacting here….   Is you.    You’ve accepted everything the player, the team and the doctors have said.    That type of thinking is EXACTLY why the NFL has a HUGE concussion problem.    The story has now been UPDATED.   The NFLPA has now exercised its right and FIRED the independent doctor who ruled Tua did not suffer a concussion in last Sundays game vs Buffalo.   All the players association will say is they interviewed the doctor yesterday (Friday) and found the doctor skipped several steps.     The handling of Tua these last two games is a disaster for the NFL, for Miami, for McDaniels, and especially for Tua whose long term health may now be at risk.   This is the last type of news the league wants or needs.      The protocols were designed specifically to avoid a situation like this from happening.   And yet it did when it was obvious something was terribly wrong with Tua and with a system that allowed him back in the field three plays later.   The protocols were designed to take the decision out of the hands of team officials, team doctors AND the players themselves who might want to play in a big important game.   That was the whole point of hiring an independent doctor.    So that incidents like this would NEVER,  EVER happen again.  And yet it did.  
    • When you get up stumbling like he was I don’t care what the experts say human decency says don’t let him back him. He clearly lied about his back locking up.
    • We only have one kicker and we have him on the PS? Seems odd. 
    • We might end up seeing a lot of Dayo. He mostly  fits Buckner body type. Need as big as bodies as we can get in there. Good news is Buckner didn’t practice so players got lots of practice time in his spot.
