So, What player(s) are on your 2016 Free Agent wish list?

 

I'd sure like Mo Wilkerson, maybe Sean Smith.

 

I don't think we can focus on specific players yet because we don't know who will run the team next year and what type of O or D system will they want to use.

 

The system type may dictate who we're interested in....

Again. Von Miller is expected by many to hit the open market. I think we have to go all in for him. I would sign Von Miller and Janorris Jenkins. Then if the price was right on a 1year deal I'd bring in Junior Galette too. Miller, Galette, Mathis, and Walden would be a nightmare for opposing QB's. The thing is this. We have to have a pass rush. Von Miller is one of, if not the best edge rusher in the NFL. He would give our defense something its been lacking and instantly make the entire D better by himself. Jenkins would give us a tough, aggressive corner to pair with Vontae. The we can get a ILB in the firsr round since its looking like we'll get a high pick. We should be able to get one of Smith or Jack.

I'm not expecting Miller to be available, but if he is I agree, go get him.

I've read a lot of places that say he's expected to hit the open market. Even one article predicting him to sign with the Bears.

Free agency has worked out so well for the Colts! Can't wait for them to dip their toes back into that market!! Maybe we will sign some guys who can actually contribute or stay on the roster for the whole season. Do the Colts even have the cap space to sign any of these guys? I highly doubt it.

 

Yea, we will have plenty when we don't sign all of the busted UFA's here like Toler

Unfortunately, I think that we will only have about $21 million and that's even before we resign anyone (such as Fleener, Allen, Freeman.)

 

That being said, if we cut the larger contracts on the team, I would look to target Von Miller, Mohammed Wilkerson,Stefan Wisniewski, Eric Berry and a RT.

 

In the draft, if he is still there round about our pick, I would love Jaylon Smith and someone like Desmond King in the second round.

I just ran the calculator at OverTheCap.com and it had the Colts projected at about $33 Million contingent on them releasing Trent Cole and Andre Johnson. That's more than I thought but do you really want to wrap that all up going after one guy when this team has multiple holes to fill? O-Line, TE, WR, CB, S, ILB, D-Line, Pass Rush, RB, backup QB are all going to be positions that have to be addressed in some form or fashion in the off-season.

How are you going to fill them?

 

That's Grigson philosophy to bring in the average players and hope they can be great, but then you just have a bunch of average to below average players as a below average unit.

If the Broncos want him, they can keep him. I'd proceed with the assumption that he doesn't go anywhere.

 

As for Malik Jackson and Derek Wolfe, though... take your pick.

It depends on who we cut and keep, but we should have $20-$25M to use on outside free agents in addition to what we spend on our own...and we could spend more if we really want to.  We are set up to be significant players on the open market, especially if we have a new sheriff in town.

I think Malik Jackson could hit a sweet spot...even though interior DL isn't the need it once was and certainly not the need that playmaking Edge and ILB's are.

 

I guess we have to face the real possibility of another scheme change - though our current personnel is much better suited to a change than we were in 2012.

Henry Anderson tore his ACL. He might not be ready until November.

 

But yes, edge rusher is a higher priority. I think Bruce Irvin is the best pass rusher after Von Miller, and he's not great.

When you can rush from the interior it puts a lot less pressure on your edge rush ability

 

Considering that we will probably have to rely on at least one rookie on the edge it could really help to have a more dominant inside force

Malik Jackson, Stefan Wisniewski, Eric Weddle, and Lamar Miller.

 

Yep, the other Miller who I feel could be very productive and healthier than Bradshaw playing his role. RBs, let the dust settle and you should be able to get them at a relatively reasonable price.

I'm off Eric Weddle. He'll be 31, and he hasn't been great the last two years.

 

I'll take the other three, though.

I haven't really looked at any edge rushers yet. Just Bosa, and I don't think he's as good as people think, especially as a pass rusher.

Wisniewski has been bad for the Jags. He's basically their own version of Jonathon Harrison. He wasn't that good in Oakland which was why they spent top dollar for Rodney Hudson and the Jags got him for cheap late in FA.

Wrong he's went in there and protected Bortles made the G's better. This is through week 14 

Center Stefen Wisniewski has a pass blocking efficiency of 98.3, which is fifth best among centers. He has allowed two sacks, no hits, and 10 hurries on 564 pass blocks.

He's  also had multiple bad snaps that lead to turnovers. Jags fans seem to think they should find an upgrade.

I think an O-line signing could be in order. If Kelvin Beachum or Kelece Osemele hit the market... I think one of those guys could be a fit in this offense. It's a strong draft for centers, so I'd probably hope to add one of those then.

 

On defense. Our pass rusher situation is bad. Bruce Irvin could be the best guy available, and it's not like he's been a double digit sack guy over the course of his career. But we might have to take a look at someone like that, Trent Cole and Rob Mathis aren't getting any younger.

Do you have a link for your opinion? What I have seen of Wisniewski and read about him the only knock is the bad game he had with the botched snaps. 

Stud: Discarded by Oakland, Stefen Wisniewski (77.1) has proven to be a shrewd addition in Jacksonville.

I also ran the OTC and if you look at what we have left this year going over to next year (7 M) and 22M next year, we are at 29M. Now releasing Cole(6.25M), AJ(5 M), Gore(4M), D Jackson(5.25), and Mathis(5M), you are looking at a cap at around 54M. AJ I would consider keeping since I like his presence in the locker room, he can still be productive and he has the highest dead money, but only 2.5M so that is a toss up. I know some of them won't be gone, but I think we need to get rid of the older players on our D especially. They have high cap hits for their production, and it is time to make the team younger.

 

With that cap space, I would sign two Quality OL, RG and RT, sign Luck's extension and also sign Fleener and Allen. I don't think there contracts will be too much after this season, and we should keep them. I believe afterwards we will still have the room to go after a premier rusher like Miller, but I would not mind just focusing on the draft for the defense. I don't want Wilkerson, since for the money he will get, he is not a pass rusher, he is a run stopper, and I believe we are fine on the DL, it is the one area on defense we have a little depth. We do need a DL who can rush, but I would not spend the money on Wilkerson. FA is such a gamble, that is why I would only sign true quality OL who fit our system, and possibly someone like Miller depending on space after our other signings. It will be interesting. A lot will depend on the new coach and defense we run also. I would love to have Miller and Jaylon Smith though!

Only looking back at the jags forum where a lot of their mock drafts include a center in the middle rounds where they say they want some to push or replace Wisniewski. I don't actually watch Jags games so I take their word for it.

Wilkerson isn't a pass rusher? Did you watch him when we played the Jets? 

 

He only has 12.5 sacks to go with 20 quarterback hits, 38 hurries, totals that both rank second in the NFL among 3-4 defensive ends

 

He's going to cost and most likely  get the tag. He can most definatley get to the QB. 

 

At 26 if the Jets let him walk I'd be interested.

LOL What??? Wilkerson is one of the best all around 3-4 ends in the NFL man. He can rush the passer AND stop the run. He's an all around stud and he may be available because of the Jets now having Williams. In fact Wilkerson is one of the best pass rushing DT's in the NFL.

Agreed, ROTFlmao. Wilkerson is a top 2 player at his position, and likely top 10 player in the entire league, all positions considered. Anything under $13 million a year for him in FA would be a steal.

    • Every single team in the league would be okay with that level of play. 
    • All I brought here was a guess about how PFF values Godwin vs Leonard and Q in an attempt to answer a question about why Tampa bay was ranked so high in those graphs. Everything after that has been people trying to pin PFFs evaluation on my opinion and me repeatedly saying - this is not my opinion, this is how PFF likely values them.    That's PFF ...likely... again... not sure because I don't have their numbers, but knowing what they value and knowing that they themselves said Q is about as valuable as Calvin Ridley in their system, my guess would be that by their numbers Q and Leonard together are about as valuable or less valuable than Godwin.. I clearly said that just a few posts after my initial post and said it multiple times here  and here and here and here  and here , etc... pretty much in every single comment in this thread I made it clear that this is likely how PFF values them, not how I value them. In one of those I clearly stated this:      That was me, but it's clearly in the context of the argument about their value. It's pretty common way to illustrate how one values an asset/player - would you trade X for Y? And this should be especially obvious since DL and Q are not FAs and Godwin is. And again, I want to point out that this whole thing was me trying to defend myself from people attributing things to me that I never said or meant and I believe I did plenty enough to make it clear that this was PFF's value not mine, like I linked above in about half a dozen cases in this thread. Yet here we are...    No, you repeatedly have misrepresented my opinion in this thread, even after being corrected again and again and again(counted to about half a dozen times on the first page alone me saying, this is how PFF likely values them).  So how about this... post again what you think my opinion is and what your objections are. Hint... I quoted my summarized opinion above.    I will take the fault here and apologize. You didn't say he's a scrub. You said he has only one season above average. Shouldn't have said scrub... should have said "people here act like he's an average receiver", which he's not and it will become very obvious how NFL teams value him in about 2-3 weeks when FA starts.    I stand by this. People usually overvalue their own players and undervalue other teams' players. Nothing new here indeed. I think this thread is a good representation of this too. Just my opinion.  The problem is the SB is one game. In order to get there you need to go through a season and 3 playoff games. Godwin was pretty valuable to Tampa bay in their SB winning season, even if he dropped like... 4 passes in the SB itself.  Sure... I don't mind that... agree to disagree. I don't have a problem with you not liking Godwin as much as me or anyone else.  No, nobody is saying those players are not valuable or that there is no value to having good LBs or DL or OL... But again... you are talking about a single game with incredibly hobbled KC OL that gave up 55% pressure rate and where Mahomes was pressured in less than 2.5 seconds in about half his snaps.    IMO the biggest mismatch in this game was KC OL vs Tampa bay DL and a ton of it had to do with KC OL just being super short handed and being destroyed by Tampa bay's DL. This IMO was what decided that game more than anything else. But again.. .we are talking about a single game with a very very weird mismatch that's not likely to happen very often in a SB, simply because in order to get there teams should have some base level of OL play... It just happened that an already hobbled KC OL lost even more pieces between the previous game and the SB.  Agree with this. Never said otherwise. But I do think premier passcatchers and playmakers are very valuable.   OK, what do you want to discuss about the graphs? 
    • Reich needs to turn CW loose. I think he needed a change in scenery. I have a feeling he is going to be great here.
    • I just looked him up.   The question on him (seems to be) is could he handle speed rushers in the NFL, on the LT spot?   He would add another run blocking mauler (If we draft him)   There are a few 2nd round OTs that played LT in college, that may be better at G or RT in the pros   Who knows
