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

    • That's funny dude.  I probably should listen to my wife more.    I DON"T THINK JONATHON TAYLOR SHOWED HE IS GOING TO BE GOOD AT MAKING THE EDGE.  I WAS UNIMPRESSED WITH HIS CARRIES.  There, that is what I meant.   To me it's very annoying when someone tries to break down language as if they were in a game of GOTCHA, which seems like what you are doing.    Are you a lawyer perhaps?    
    • I was impressed with his pass catching abilities. IMO he will get better when he gets more adjusted to the speed of NFL players. He was used to being the best in college but now he is facing NFL caliber players.  The lack of not having pre season games with the new players showed big time.  The whole team including the coaches just didn't play sharp. 
    • Perhaps you should listen to your wife. Odd because that usually goes the other way around. The man has to beg the wife to say what she means (easy ladies,im only joking... Kind of)   Say what you mean.. People here aren't mind readers.   Hyperbole is used in this world, way over used in fact, but it very rarely helps to advance a constructive conversation. Look how many responses we've gone through when you simply could have said "I don't think he'll be good running around the edge". It took me about 15 seconds to type that out and I'm on my phone.    This is always a problem on here after a loss because a lot of people can't simply talk about what actually went wrong but instead have to go way overboard making up stupid crap that isn't true just to make themselves feel better about the anger and frustration they're feeling.
