The TY Hilton situation


Recommended Posts

What bothers me is that they havn't moved on extending ANY of the players who are in their final year this year.  TY, Castanzo, Fleener, Allen . . . 

 

We really need to get those extensions done and waiting til the season is over is a bad way to go about it.  Extending them when they have a season in front of them encourages them to sign in order to financially protect themselves against injury.  Extending them after all the football has been played means they are left with little reason to not test the free agent market.  

 

How do you know that?

This is a completely unrealistic scenario. Tagging Hilton would most likely be in the $14 Mil range for one hit. Combine that with the cap hit of $15-20 Mil that Luck will most likely hold for next season. That's $30 Mil between just two players and you have to take into account the other marquee free agents that the team has to re-sign after next season. Any team trying to acquire Hilton would have to take on a $14 Mil cap hit AND lose a draft pick. All for a guy who is 5'9" 183 LBS. What team is giving up a 1st or 2nd for that? Then, the Colts also have to take a cap penalty for franchising Hilton and then trading him. They're much better off just taking their chances on the open market and receiving a high compensation pick.

 

What penalty would the Colts have to take if they tagged and then traded him?  How much would it be?

At one point it was 50% of the franchise tag dollar amount. However, I'm not sure what the calculations would come out to under the new CBA, since the rules were tweaked some in regards to transition and franchise tags.

None, assuming he's traded before the season starts.

 

Franchise tag compensation is treated as salary under the CBA, and it's prorated on a weekly basis during the season, not before. So if you trade a tagged player before the deadline on Tuesday of Week 1, you don't take any cap penalty. Anytime after that, it's prorated by 1/17th for each week.

yeah that's pretty much what I thought...was just checking to see if the person making the claim knew that ;) lol

Perhaps I should re-state that. . . They have failed to agree on terms with ANY of the players who are entering their final year.  

 

That's a lot of core players to just wait til the end of the season to extend.

It came out he doesn't plan of giving us a hometown discount. Maybe we can talk some sense into him and get the "I want to play with the best QB in the league for my whole career and not for some scrub team like the Jags" discount.

We're already superbowl contenders, but Wilkerson would put us over the top on defense and give us an instant player offensive teams have to gameplan for. I'd definitely be in support of trading Hilton for Wilkerson if they'd do it.

 

What about TY Hilton for Paris and Nicky Hilton?

 

Hakeem Nicks for Akiem Hicks? :)

Stephen Holder's speculation isn't really newsworthy, IMO. And I think Holder is usually on the right track. Not only that, but I never expected Hilton to give the Colts a hometown discount. He's been playing at a discount for two seasons now.

True.  New rookie CBA deals really pummel the standout stars in the making.  Notably the later rounders.  Besides, T.Y.'s, his agent's, and the Colts fans ideas of a  'home town discount' can vary wildly.  T.Y. could sign for amount he feels is justly discounted, his agent feels is obscenely below market, while fans feel the team was held over the barrel.  It's Irsays pocketbook, and Grigson's cap to manage, Pagano's personnel to implement. We enjoy the ride.

Andrew can make stars out of all his WRs.  Can T.Y. be a star somewhere else?  ...and he scored 7 TDs last year, one less than Fleener AND Allen.

Good luck to TY and Rozensleaze as TY gets shopped around for the highest dollar...and spends his career on a poor team and never sniffs a Lombardi trophy.

He had already factored in Luck and Hilton. Fleener and Allen are not marquee.

 

Grigson somehow is gonna resign Hilton. I honestly don't think we should worry about it.

 

You should always worry. I mean, we still can use the franchise tag. But either way, we need to keep Hilton with us.

Well he sure didn't make stars out of DHB or Da'rick Rodgers or even Donnie Avery or Hakeem Nicks, Don't get me wrong here, I think Luck can elevate talent around him somewhat but those players have to be talented around him. But to answer your question "can T.Y, be a star somewhere else?" Yes but like any wide receiver he cant go to the Jets(Or a team with a bad QB) and expect to put up anywhere near the same numbers as he has with Luck, That's just not realistic. He can go to Pittsburgh or the Patriots or Packers and put up big numbers

    • I voted Braden Smith, as whenever anyone mentioned our line previously, it was always Castonzo, Nelson and Kelly that were mentioned specifically by name, hardly ever was Braden thrown in there too. He has been stalwart at RT and definitely deserves far more credit.    However, after I pressed Braden and voted i had a thought.... and funnily enough I think the answer is TY Hilton atm.   Pretty much ever since he was drafted the Colts offence just hasn’t been the same when he isn’t on the field. That holds true still... even when he isn’t posting big numbers himself, the entire offence runs better when he is there. People are so down on TY that they were willing to let him walk, but it would’ve been a massive mistake. So glad he stayed.    
    • In the wake of the draft, I've naturally seen and heard a number of people discuss the outlook for the Colts defensive line. Paye and Dayo are spoken about as high upside prospects, Buckner is seen as a perennial All-Pro, and Grover Stewart is... never mentioned. Stewart has come on leaps and bounds since he was drafted, and has been as consistent and reliable as anyone on the D-Line the last two seasons. I don't feel like he's currently getting the recognition that he deserves, and would argue that he's the most underrated player on the Colts right now.   If you disagree, who would be your choice?   I have a couple of other contenders but feel free to add your own in the comments:   Rock Ya-Sin - Very solid when playing zone but gets burned or penalised once a game and that's all people remember.   Braden Smith - Being the third best lineman on the team means being top 5 at his position often goes unnoticed.   Nyheim Hines - Recognised for his ability to make plays out of the backfield but has also begun to show improvement running between the tackles.   Jack Doyle - Mr. Reliable. He'd still be top of my target list in a 4th and 5 situation. Never makes the highlight reel but is one of the most fundamentally sound football players on the team.
