Colts trade for DL Billy Winn

Recommended Posts

@RapSheet: The #Browns have traded DL Billy Wynn to the #Colts for a 2017 conditional draft pick, the team announced.

Hope it works out for us better this time.

 

We have also waived guard Robert Myers and waived running back Daniel (Boom) Herron from Injured Reserve.

That's an interesting move. He's another long and somewhat athletic DL.

 

They also waived Robert Myers.

Robert Myers is a project. Not surprised he was waived. Hopefully we can get him back in our practice squad.

 

I like your new avatar, btw.

First thing I read is with the other guys the Browns have it was a mild upset that he made the 53.

I love this move. He was a guy a lot of us were projecting to be drafted by the Colts that year. 

 

He is fast and athletic:

We definitely have athletic bodies flying around with enough depth. Now, only time will tell if the quality is as good as the quantity.

I am confused on this... I have heard different things... Once Boom is healed can he re-sign with the Colts as a FA?  Or is that not allowed?

I dont think he can if he takes an injury settlement

He technically can, but Colts moved on with Boom. Doubt he comes back.

He can re-sign with the Colts no sooner than six weeks from now. It's technically six weeks from whenever he is projected to be medically cleared, so if they say that he should be ready to go in a month, then he can re-sign with the Colts six weeks after that. Kind of complicated. For the sake of simplicity, if we assume that he's medically cleared now, then he can't sign with the Colts until Week 7.

Let's face it, this trade was not made for Sunday, but for long term experienced depth.

There was no mention of injury settlement which is what you are referring to. Or is that a given since we released him from IR?

Go Boise State! He's a good player isn't he? I remember him being regarded as a real steal

I saw a report that said he was waived with an injury settlement. But either way, yes, that's a given. You can't otherwise waive an injured player.

A conditional pick, likely 6th or 7th rounder, 2 years from now. This is really a no lose trade. If he's any good we get value from a low pick 2 years in advance.

Dan Herron - RB -  Free Agent

Colts waived RB Dan Herron with an injury settlement.

If he clears waivers -- and we suspect he will -- Herron will become an unrestricted free agent. The Colts wouldn't be eligible to re-sign Herron for six weeks. They've moved on with Josh Robinson behind Frank Gore.
 
I say if the Colts are not happy with the running back depth behind Gore in 6-8 weeks, Boom will be back. I think he'll be back next season regardless. They're clearly not finished with him though.. just don't have enough room to keep him.

Unless another team scoops him up.   Like the Patriots, for instance.

That value may have to be in the form of a 1 year rental as he'll be a free agent at the close of business.  Still feels like solid value, no doubt.

Like Boom but he's gone. If needed there are a lot of other FA RB's available better than him.

I know he's suspended for a game and he has had some unlucky injuries but I'd love to bring back Bradshaw.

No risk trade really and good against the run by all accounts. Any particular reason he dropped so low in draft after high projections?

 

Injuries to the foot.

They also worked out Derrick Lott recently. I wonder why they felt Wynn was a better move.

I was a huge Derrick Lott fan during the draft, and would of liked to add him. All in all though this move is probably better because of his experience, and I am sure that is why the FO decided to go this route.

    • Good point.  I think this has serious merit 
    • My take   1. We overachieved last season. Period 2. We played at KC 3. TY limited the offense because he was so injured.  4. We played a very very good coach with time to prepare and his guys got some rest too and time to scout the team. Remember, Reich is well known to Reid as well by now.  5. Not having Hooker really mattered 6. Play calling was a bit blah 7. How does Vinny automatic miss those kicks? 8. A strip sack for us turns into a strip sack for them a few plays later, that hurt.  9. A young team who wasn’t supposed to be in the playoffs, let alone a second game in the playoffs had some factor here.  10. KC had a pretty good team   my concern from that game would be how poorly our run game was going forward. Kelly better play better than he did this season or I don’t see a 15 million/yr contract coming his way in Indy. I think with a healthy TY, the additions of DF and Cain and Paris and others should really boost that offense. An offense with TY, Paris, Doyle, EE and Mack, now that’s gonna be a tough group to match up with and defend. Run or pass, heck coach, idk what they are doing lol.    Gonna be fun to see this team evolve and have better back ups coming off the bench. I just hope we have enough beef in the middle to stop the run and I just hope that Kelly was hobbled in that KC game because it was one of his worst games that year. 
    • This again boils down to you hanging on to 'this is how it's always been done.' And you don't get that I don't care about that rationale. I think it can be done better. Which is why, in my first post in this thread, I said "to me, it's a no brainer." To me. It should be obvious that this is my stated preference, not me saying that teams that don't do it this way are stupid.   There should be nothing more that I have to say about that, except you continue to rely on that appeal to authority, and I'm telling you that 'how it's always been done' isn't legitimate reason for not examining potential alternatives. Not just in this area, but in everything.      You're missing an important detail, and I think it's because you've put my argument in a box and are unwilling to actually examine it on its merits.   As I said initially, and have said since, my argument is to make this change six months sooner, not six months later. "Imagine if we had fired Grigson in June 2016 instead of January 2017." Did you miss that part, again? What about "if the Texans had waited until January 2020 to fire Gaine..."?    I want him in asap. You want him asap, but not until January.   My statement about it being just one draft is referencing the worst case scenario, which is 'we just blew a draft cycle by letting a lame duck GM stay,' to which I say 'get over it, I'm okay with that if that's what it takes to get the guy I want in the building, with the staff he wants.' And that's where my argument about it potentially being easier to interview candidates in the down season after the draft is critical. The Jets wanted Joe Douglas; he evidently didn't want to entertain a move during draft season, but jumped at it in May/June. (There's the matter of moving his family during the school year, etc.) In theory, this approach could make it easier to interview good candidates. Whether you agree with that or not, whether it's important to you or not, this is mostly an aside. As I said, this was my response to the alarmist reaction of 'they just blew a draft!' Which I think is overstated, especially in the Texans' case.     Not at all. Again, if Ballard started in June 2016, he theoretically could have changed coaches a year sooner.      This is a hindsight fallacy. Go back to the Texans wanting to hire Caserio. I'm not arguing that he's going to be a great GM, I'm arguing that he's the guy they want to hire, and he's available in June. Same for the Jets and Douglas. The Chiefs and Veach.    We know that every person hired doesn't succeed. I never argued that they do. That's true of whoever you rush to hire in January. The point is that there is always a pool of qualified candidates from which to choose. I won't be retracting that, I firmly believe it, and I said it when the Colts were interviewing coaches in 2012, when they interviewed GMs in 2017, and when they interviewed coaches in 2018. You choosing to reject that is pretty ridiculous, to be honest. There are always qualified candidates. Choosing the right one is a different story.   And again, if there's one guy you really, desperately want, why wait until January to get him?     You could give me the benefit of the doubt and assume that if I'm saying it, I mean it. Especially this far into the discussion...    And going back to what I said earlier, this is and always has been my opinion. I'm not offering studies and conclusive evidence to support this opinion because it's a personal preference, it's what I think would be best (although I have offered evidence and rationale to support my opinion, you've just chosen to reject, for reasons I don't agree with).    I'm okay with the disagreement. What I find personally off-putting is the insistence that, because you don't understand my angle, it means I either haven't actually thought it through, or I don't actually believe it. As I said earlier, I understand that general consensus disagrees with my viewpoint, but that doesn't mean I'm just going to conform. The fact that I'm presenting an argument in earnest should be enough.
    • I'm an Iowa fan but I'd kind of like to see Michigan win that game so that it can maybe move back towards the appearance of a real rivalry.     That is unless an Ohio State victory would somehow help Iowa, in that situation I would root for the Buckeyes.
