INDIANAPOLIS COLTS SIGN OLB-ALEX BAZZIE TO RESERVE/FUTURE CONTRACT 

Recommended Posts

 The Indianapolis Colts today signed outside linebacker Alex Bazzie to a reserve/future contract.

 

Bazzie, 6-2, 240 pounds, spent the last three years (2014-16) with the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League. He played in 50 games and totaled 83 tackles, 29.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and eight special teams stops. In 2016, Bazzie started all 18 games and tallied 31 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss, 11.0 sacks and one forced fumble. In the playoffs, he started in the Western Semi-Final and Western Final at defensive end. Bazzie earned his first career West Division All-Star selection as his sack total led the team and ranked fourth in the league. He saw action in 15 games in 2015 and led the Lions with 8.0 sacks, while adding 18 tackles and six special teams stops. Bazzie notched three tackles in the Western Semi-Final playoff game. As a rookie in 2014, he appeared in 17 games and recorded 34 tackles, 10.0 sacks, one forced fumble and two special teams stops. Bazzie led the team with 9.0 tackles for loss and became just the third player in franchise history to register 10.0 or more sacks in their debut season. He originally signed with BC as a free agent in May 2014.

 

Collegiately, Bazzie played in 45 games at Marshall and totaled 109 tackles, 10.0 tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks. He was born in Liberia and moved to Maryland when he was five years old.

    • Im personally in the wait and see group.  My reasons for optimism are the things being said are in line with how I think a team should be ran (but as we all know talk only goes so far) and I think we got a good coaching staff to facilitate a vision. Which is also something I love is that this team seems to have a vision or an identity if you will. Something we sorely lacked with the previous regime.   My reasons for caution though are what worry me.  While I liked parts of the draft I feel like Ballard did not take what the draft gave him. And I'll be in even more caution if we go and sign multiple defensive ends next year (it's going to be a great year for the entire dline) when we spent 2 high picks on them this year. To me it seems like he got to cute for his britches after making the obvious pick and that reminds me of Grigson. Is that an overreaction? Time will tell.  But it's a big reason for concern since this is supposedly the main entrance of talent is via this man's draft strategy.  Also I don't want a Polian approach to free agency and I get the feeling that is what we are getting.  That's underwhelming especially in an age where the salary cap is ever increasing and the options to sign decent talent for reasonable money are becoming more and more viable. Take the Breeland free agent as an example.    Either way despite my worries I'd say I have more optimism than pessimism and a far playoff run would probably have me sold.  But less than. 8 wins and I'm going to be questioning pretty hard.  Luck is good enough for us to reach the 50/50 mark. 
    • Well I mean new place, so not unexpected but could have fun with it
    • Rookies, Injured players, and QB's were to report today.
    • At least you’re consistent...    wrong, but consistent.   This is now twice you’ve said people here would be blaming Ballard if the Leonard deal hadn’t gotten done.   The only people who’d be bashing Ballard are the ones who don’t understand the new CBA.   Everyone else — the vast majority — would be bashing Leonard and his agents.   That’s where the responsibility would’ve been correctly placed.    For some reason you don’t know that.   And once again you trot out another wrong example with Ballard....   in your mind “he can’t close the deal.” You take the 2018 free agency season and interpret it as he CAN’T close the deal,  when the correct understanding is that the only deal he wanted to close on in 2018 were the ones on HIS TERMS.   And as I’ve explained to you repeatedly, Ballard closed the deal 10 times in the 2017 free agency season.  But you keep forgetting that even though it was only one year ago.   Ballard wasn’t the problem with Leonard,  the agents who wanted things they mostly weren’t going to get were the problem.   It’s the first day of camp and here you are knocking heads with folks.   You might want to consider keeping your powder dry and enjoying the new season.    Just a thought....
