imo the colts can realistic sign both coby and dwayne . currently at 19m expected to rise 12-14 mil in march , plus likely cut andre and trent cole which would give us 40 million to work with . 

Is that counting the 7.5 mil in dead money if we cut AJ?

Maybe they will try to sign Allen first and use the deal as leverage to sign Fleener, assuming they want to sign Fleener.  

 

They need to make their contracts somewhat similar otherwise there's gonna be tension between the two

Well to me resign em both because we don't need any more receivers the group will do good as long as they're healthy  and hopefully a zone scheme relieves luck from forcing crap

 

we have 3 receivers, T.Y., Moncreif, and our yet unproven #1 pick Dorsett.

We cant expect all three to stay healthy all season. Lots of needs on team but we need to replace A.Johnson and Carter for #4 & #5 spots for depth. And please no more griff.

Replacing those guys won't be difficult.  The receiver position is the least of my worries.

Agreed, people really do seem to overlook how thin we are at WR. Sure, there's some great talent at the position, but not nearly enough depth. I could definitely justify using a late round pick on a WR, and grabbing someone cheap in FA.

We can bring in a guy like Rod Streeter, Andre Holmes, Brandon Gibson, or somebody like that as the 4th receiver. And we could get any of those 3 pretty cheap.

Dorsett is gonna excel yes we have no proof on either but he was not utilized at all and blame pep then add in lucks issues  the only thing that's worrisome is if anyone gets injured but even then down 1 receiver we still have two tight ends (assuming they get them both back) and if the line improves more chances for fleener and Allen to split out wide  like we need sometimes..so yeah I'm not too worried on WR we already have seen last couple superbowls you don't need too much talent in the Wr department

If this is based off of his interview with JMV yesterday, I wouldn't read too much into it. I think he said that he spoke with Chuck and Ryan once and that there wasn't any progress to report. He also said that he believes he is an elite Tight End and that Rosenhaus has been selling that as well. So if he's looking for elite TE money, so long. He's nowhere near elite at this point.

Agreed. That's what I would do.

Thank you for adding the bolded, completely agree!

 

P.s. - I like Bray for one of those roster spots at the moment.  He seemed like he has good potential as a return guy.  Not sure he can replace any of our top 3, but he should have value as a #4, #5.

This is great news to hear. The last little while people were talking about how we'd probably keep Fleener and let Allen walk. We need to bring back both. They play the same position but in such a different style. Fleener finds ways to get open and is a good vertical threat. Allen is a do it all guy who excels in blocking. That diversity in terms of style makes it harder to defend our offense (not to mention our three very talented young receivers). Plus Chud will find a way to involve the two in our offense more.

He can look for it all he wants, he isn't going to get elite money until he can proves he can stay healthy.

Why do the colts need a slow deep threat in Fleener when the have TY, Landshark and Dorsett?

Not concerned about WRs at all, the 3 of them are essentially a poor man's version of Antonio Brown, Dez Bryant, and Randall Cobb.

We need to replace Carter?  Why would we need to replace someone who wasn't on the team last year?

    • Believe it or not, yep, I only had the nerves hit me like that one, the morning of my last wrestling match my senior year in highschool. I wrestled pretty darn good that day but there was no way I was beating 6 top 10 ranked and undefeated kids to advance to semi state.
    • Its probably natural to be upset, but the feeling of rightful ownership is misplaced, IMO.  It just falls under the broad undeniable truth that you can easily lose what you have if you don't defend it against others who will take it, simply because they want it.  Like all cities, MINN is in constant competition with other cities for anything that is good and they would have lost the Vikings if they did not step up to the plate and replaced the Metrodome.  
    • Eh Yeah maybe, but the ty we saw the last two years is not the TY that exploded on the league. Speed and losing it doesn’t concern me at all. WRs slow down all the time as they age. Even the greats. TY can still get open.    that said, something that has concerned me the last two years with TY and even 2018 with Andrew Luck, TY has been missing catches. Dropping passes he when younger made in his sleep. I’m sure someone will say something about his stat line and what not, but drops are about the most subjective stat out there. Besides the drops, I don’t see him fighting for the ball on contested catches like he used too as well. This is the same exact path that Reggie Wayne had to go down, same thing with Andre Johnson. I’m seeing the exact same things they had happen their last years playing happening to Ty the last couple of seasons. It’s still sporadic, and he did string together a few good games. But the whole outweighs the few.   I think you let him go.
    • Well - if you are going to vomit then get it over with and get on the field!   When playing sports I was one of those guys.  Not always, but when I would get too hyped about a game I would puke - before the game started - and then everything would be great!  During one game - the league championship game when I was 12 I think - I puked in the huddle getting ready for the kick off.  We all rubbed it into the dirt with our shoes and then started the game!
    • The Bucs with Brady is probably the only team that actually can beat KC just because of Brady and their high flying offense. Their D is also playing much better now than it did in week 12.  Both tackles being out for KC is also huge.
