Dontari Poe scheduled to visit


Recommended Posts

Dontari Poe in high demand. Visits Colts Sun, JAX, ATL, OAK and MIA wants visits as well. If Indy doesn't come correct he'll be traveling

 

Don't know how to copy a tweet on my phone. This is from LaCanfora

If Ballard wants him, and the Colts get a visit with him, then he's ours. It just depends on how much Poe wants for a contract. He's someone I actually don't have a dollar figure on as of now.

Well I personally would put he and Williams pretty close together and Williams just got around $10M per year.  i can't see him getting much more than that, maybe to 11 or 12 tops.  Anything more than that is bad IMHO.

I honestly don't want him if he's more than Brandon Williams. He just got signed as the highest paid NT in the NFL. Poe, with his back problems, should not be signed for more. Maybe if it was a 1 year deal, but even then, I'd only like to pay him around 8-9 million.

I would concur.  i really wanted Williams.

Sign Poe, Zach Brown, and Claiborne and we'll be sitting pretty.

I could get with that.  At least they are all young still.  but I would be surprised if Ballard makes a run at that many high-priced guys.  Personally, I'd be happy with just one of them.

Does anyone know the nature of his back issues? Has he had surgery in that area? How much playing time has he missed due to his back?  

 

I don't think he missed much time, but his play wasn't the same this year.

 

I have a feeling he will sign a one year "prove it" deal with any team he signs with.

Yeah but with those 3, and a good draft we could actually have a GOOD D next year. Poe is a superstar. He just wasn't 100% last year. We could grab a couple EDGE rushers and another ILB in the first 3 RDS

Here's the tweet, sounds like we have a golden chance to seal the deal with Poe tomorrow. Would absolutely hate to see him land in Jax.

I could get behind this. If I could only have two of the three, give me Poe & Claiborne. If we can do that I'd say grab an edge rusher, a safety & a guard in the first three rounds.

Thank you. I don't hate the idea of a one year "prove it" at all.

Pay the man 8-10 million all guaranteed with 2 more million in incentives. 2 year contract. With the second year being a team option for 12-13 million year (if he pans out to be what we expect). And if he does pans out, give him a the contract he deserves.

Getting Poe would be a big splash indeed, but would his contract be "doable" and still give us enough cap for other signings?

We had what, 50ish million to spend coming into this after the Doyle contract? We've spent 8 on Sheard and about 4.5 on Simon, so we still have about 35ish million to spend. We can definitely add Poe and still have room for a couple more additions.

I'd say it would probably take us out of the Hightower race, but could probably still snag TJ Lang (OG). I could still see us re-signing Darius Butler as well.

This free agency period is going exactly as you predicted.     Which guy did we bring in that brought you back?  Was it Mingo?

 

Just busting your chops.   The fact poe hasn't been signed yet is curious.   Teams know something we don't.  If he leaves without a contract,  I'm good with him going elsewhere

Don't want Poe.....not as good last year as in the past....

.....purely a run stopper...

 

...I'm not a fan....

Not sure if you noticed,  We need run stoppers.  7 of them in fact

If poe was a superstar,  He wouldn't be unemployed currently

I feel la canfora should never use the term "come correct"

That's actually quite interesting, for my attitude is, as long as they don't utterly cash strap themselves cap-wise, which would then prevent ongoing moves to continue to improve, I really could not care less what a player is signed for, as long as he is a key signing to noticeably improve the team.  As a fan wanting to see the team WIN, I would never quibble over a guy being signed for $13M per year instead of $10M per year.  As long as that extra $3M does not strap the team, who cares, really?!

Not like the dough is coming from mine or your wallets.  lol

    • Herbert certainly looked better for their team than Tyrod.   I will say that while I was impressed with Herbert's athleticism and poise, I think the hype train is going a little too strong for him already.  Will be interesting to see how he does over the course of the season.   I really think the Chiefs were caught off guard after preparing for Tyrod's boring ball control style.  They were also banged up on the line.  Herbert was exciting, compared to Tyrod, but I only counted about 5 completions that were actually thrown down field.  The rest of his yardage came from dump-offs and passes in the flat.  He also threw that momentum-swinging interception.   The good news for Herbert is that they play a terrible Panthers team this week.  Should be able to put up some nice numbers.
    • Maybe but I'm sure his unlimited funds had a little to do with it. 
    • It’ll be interesting to see what Goodell will do.      His stated policy is that you don’t have to be convicted or even charged with a crime to be subject to NFL discipline.  So Roger could still levy punishment on Kraft.   Fine?   Suspension?   Remember what was done to Irsay.....   I’m confident something will be done.  The question is how much?
    • I can’t agree with you there: the receivers, TEs and running backs, although unproven, have a lot of potential. I would argue they’re deeper than when he took over. Time will tell but I think you’re underestimating what we have in the passing game.
    • Yep, saw him play live a couple times and numerous times on TV. He was something else.   Unfortunately, I also saw the Kermit Alexander hit (TV, not live) that tore up his knee and ultimately  ended his career.
