Hmmmmm.......9th pick?  That would make a definite difference in who you get.  My thought on that is there is someone they are targeting in that "top tier".  Wonder who it is?  Would a guy like Hooker still be there?  I said the other day on tape he reminded me of Ed Reed, and then watching the Combine I heard them say the same thing!

I think it is reasonable to assume that getting kicked out of the combine is the kiss of death.

 

Run. Run far away from that knucklehead.

 

I think the rumor is bogus anyway. The person reporting the story called Chris Ballard, "John Ballard". He has no clue what he is even making up.

LOL. True.

 

The fans would pack Chris's bags for him, drive him to the airport, and give him a one-way ticket back to Kansas City,

Cardinals look to have the first deal in place this FA period with Gresham, a 4 year deal in place it looks like.

The team is going to have to be active in FA. They had too many holes and have done nothing to keep their own FA's, it appears. I really wanted to keep Doyle and I'd love to keep Butler too but I don't think either one will  be back now.

Texans discussing a deal with Ricky Wagner. 

Aj Bouye talking with eagles 

Colts and redskins both contacted the Bengals about the 9th pick at the combine. 

That one came from a person with 60 followers on twitter. Don't fall for it. It's fake.

I'd have to see how it turned out. If he becomes a hall of famer for us then I could forgive, but other than that I agree.

Truth. Adams even tweeted a good bye message of sorts.

Well if we are going to be "extremely competitive" for Bouye we will see just how much we can persuade a top free agent to come here.

 

According to some people on this forum, playing with Andrew Luck is enough to get free agents to come here instead of better weather locations, bigger markets, no state income tax etc.

 

We will soon see.

This area does seem to be the one place where Pagano does indeed have some type of magic touch. If Bouye comes to Indy for an interview, there's like an 85% chance that he's a Colt after that meeting.

Not sure that closing deals with FA's over the years has really been due to Pagano.  Is that even in his wheelhouse, as opposed to say, Grigson/Ballard/Raye?

Supposedly he's the one that got P-Rob last year, apparently meeting with Chuck is what sealed the deal.

I'm pretty sure over the years people have mentioned that Grigson was known as a "closer". 

 

Edit: Here's an article on it. Man this seems like a distant memory...

Rob needs to make a big leap this year. Maybe isolating him in the slot with Bouye and Davis on the outside will do him wonders.

Well, considering who Grigson gave contracts to, most were going wherever the money was.

    • Brissett's already better than he was in 2017.  2017 Brissett doesn't deliver in the red zone the way this year's version does.   He's learning.  It'll take awhile before he's got his game fully under control but he is learning.
    • We are indeed young.  That said, the team has looked competitive so far.  It's a long shot, but if we avoid making major mistakes, we could be contenders this year.  I'm certainly not going to concede anything without a fight, that's for darn sure.
    • Gee, it couldn't be more clear. We have as good a run blocking line as there is.  Your coach says we are going to Run the Damn Ball. Simple.   Think Seahawks and you will get it.   NOTHING is happening in just a few weeks. We are young.
    • As a colts fan from up north, Im not really familiar with the colts media, can y'all recommend some good reporters to follow on twitter for team news ?
    • I agree I'd like to get Campbell more involved, it's going to come down to Brissett establishing a comfort level with him.  Right now that's the big thing holding the team back, is that Brissett is still getting comfortable with the team's receiving corps.    One of the reasons TY is getting so many balls thrown his way is because TY is one of the holdovers from Brissett's run in 17 and there's some residual comfort factor there.   I think that'll work itself out given time. Brissett's just gonna get comfortable with some of his younger options.   That said, if we're in the playoff hunt at the deadline I do think Ballard is going to make a move for a veteran target.  We don't have a lot of physicality in our receiver corps, especially without Funchess.  With a non-elite QB I see that as a need that will have to be addressed.
