Irving And Moore Next Years Starters?


Recommended Posts

getting ahead of myself, but im thinking with AC, the TEs, and andrew still needing to get paid, freeman is not gonna get the deal he wants and the colts know that and then theres jackson's contract correct me if im wrong can be cut next year and not suffer too bad cap wise. so the colts can already be planning to replace them with irving and moore

I think that is probably the plan. If Herrera goes to the PS, I think we'll have Irving and Sio with Herrera, McNary and hopefully a bulked up Sylvestre as backups. It'll be interesting to see how it all shakes out this year. Freeman could have extra motivation in a contract year.

 Those guys should/may be backups this season.

Anything is possible. I agree I don't think Freeman is going to get the deal he wants this next year with his age. I also think Grigs is going to want to go younger at ILB. In that case yes Irving (27) and Moore (25) would be good choices to replace them in the starting line-up. This is also hoping that the two of them fit into our scheme and play well for us this year.

We should probably wait and see how Irving and Moore play for us before jumping.  Granted, I LOVE how both play.  And Am very optimistic. But both coming off real injuries, and have yet to take real snaps in a Colt uniform.

I personally would like to see how a Anderson, Parry, Langford, Mathis, Irving, Moore, Walden front 7 would perform.

Wait, so is Herrera a free agent at the moment then?  Grigs has said there was no hesitation of them resigning McNary...  So does anyone think Herrera is actually coming to the PS?  If so, who would go to open a spot?  

Yes as of right now he is a FA. It is hard to say though. Grigs may have already claimed him for our PS. I think with labor day weekend the league offices weren't open so transactions haven't officially gone through yet. Same thing in NY with them claiming Montori Hughes to their PS it won't be official till tomorrow. I believe Herrera will be on the practice squad. There was a reason he made the initial 53 over the others, so space will be cleared for him one way or another. If I had to guess who went it would be Patterson.

D Jackson signed what was pretty much a 2 year deal. 2016 cap number is around 5.7 mill. The cap hit if he's cut is only $500,000. Major shock to me if he's retained in 2016.

Thanks for the clarification.

They should start this year when they are both healthy they are our 2 best ILB

 

Yeah, and this is not really about money. Colts are building a whole new defense on DL+ILB and Moore + Irving is the new quality ILB duo going forward - when they are healthy. This is the plan as I see it.

I don't care if Freeman stays or goes, but dq needs to go sooner than later. He's a liability.

I think Freeman needs to just keep his head screwed on a bit more, he let his first two seasons get to his head a bit i think and stopped working as hard.

Dq Jackson I actually kinda agree on. He hasnt been the run stuffer that he was brought in to be and he is just awful in coverage. I would actually prefer to cut our losses with him and bring Herrera back into the starting lineup over him. Save on the $$ and get a better player in.

    • I think it's pretty clear that a big o-lineman is going to take a while to come back from an Achilles.  That said, next season (2022) he should be at a much closer to original explosiveness level (if all goes well rehab-wise, in other words, no set-backs).  I wouldn't put too much stock in anything but a mid to late November return (or later).  
    • New Colts LT Eric Fisher isn't putting timeline on his return from torn Achilles tendon   “What I can tell you is I’m a big ‘control what you can control’ kind of guy,” Fisher said. “Obviously, I’d like to snap my fingers and have a perfect Achilles again, but you know, that’s not the case. Obviously, the club feels good with where I’m at, I’m feeling good, but any other questions about my Achilles, I’ll leave up to Chris Ballard or Coach (Frank Reich).”   https://www.yahoo.com/sports/colts-lt-eric-fisher-isnt-173044531.html
    • Good   Baltimore Ravens Jayson Oweh, DE, Penn State
    • Actually, we don’t have the cap space for Julio Jones unless he redoes his contract which he’s not likely to do.    He’s got a $23 mill cap hit and a dead cap number if over $40 mill.   And the numbers only get modestly better next year.   Plus he’s now 32 years old.   And in top of all that, Atlanta would want draft picks?   Not happening for the Colts.   Jones is the right guy but at the wrong time and place.   
    • They implied it was because of drafting Davis.  That makes no sense to me.  Hamilton is definitely an upgrade.
