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.

I just hope it pans out better than the Trent Richardson or Joshua "fumble" Cribbs moves!

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.

    • Sure it matters.  Intent always matters in any action.  Its the major difference between Murder 1 and Manslaughter, for example.
    • Like always, injuries will help shape the final roster.....   Unfortunately.....
    • One thing is for certain this year (on paper so far) we are going to either lose a talent on WR, RB or TE depending on what direction they lean on. If we keep only 5 wr’s thinking that Hines is interchangeable, we lose out on either Fountain, Pascal, Johnson or Rogers. If we think keep 6 WR’s, we sacrifice that by going 3 rb’s and give up on Ware, Williams or Wilkins. And at TE, you risk a cut to either Cox, Travis or Hetges.    Now some of these guys could make it to the PS but not all of them. Highly unlikely we would run with 2 TE’s but if they view DF in a split type WR/TE role, anything is possible. Could either Williams or Wilkins make it to our PS, idk. Every time Wilkins runs the ball, he gets 5 yards it seems, you would have to think another teams seriously takes a look at that option and we all know how much praise CB has poured out on Williams RB abilities. As for the WR’s no way around it, we are going to lose a talent from this pool. Johnson, Pascal, Ishmail, Fountain, Hogan or Rogers, all of these have a talent ability to make several teams rosters and be an upgrade to several teams. DF better ball out at a 13 million product for us risking losing one of these young talents or some fans will never like DF regardless of what he does if he is just average and then off the team after this season. He would essentially become the teams flogging project if he isn’t a star imho. 
    • Watery eyes, runny nose, difficulty breathing... I must be allergic to reading stories like this...   Faith in humanity restored!  
    • It depends on how many out of the current group they feel they can safely keep on the practice squad. I think 4 is kind of crazy, but when you look at keeping a plethora of tight ends and maybe an extra runningback on active roster, you start factoring Ebron and Hines in as receivers more than tight end and runningback, as we will likely see those two split out more than in a traditional role. That's the beauty of versatility.
