INDIANAPOLIS COLTS MAKE ROSTER MOVES

Recommended Posts

The Indianapolis Colts today signed free agent wide receiver Marvin Bracy and waived-injured wide receiver Harvey Binford. If Binford clears waivers, he will revert to the Colts Injured Reserve List. 

Bracy, 5-9, 172 pounds, participated in the Carolina Panthers’ 2017 rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis. He is an Olympic sprinter who has participated with USA Track & Field for the last five years (2013-17). Bracy qualified for the 2016 Summer Olympics in the 100-meter dash. From 2014-16, he won three consecutive U.S. National Championships in the 60-meter dash.

 

Collegiately, Bracy redshirted as a true freshman on the Florida State football team in 2012 while also running track for the Seminoles. He ranked No. 1 in the nation in the 60-meter dash most of the season after registering the fastest time in the NCAA. Bracy earned the No. 1 seed at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. He left Florida State in 2013 to pursue a professional track career.

 

In high school, Bracy earned All-America recognition in football and track. He registered almost 1,500 all-purpose yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior. Bracy ran the fastest indoor 55-meter dash in the world in January of 2012, clocking in at 6.08 seconds. His time was a national record for the 19-and-under division and the fastest ever by a high school student. Bracy also ran the second-fastest 100-meters in Florida High School history at 10.05 seconds. He ran for the USA in the 4×100 relay in July of 2010 at the World Junior Championships. Bracy was a three-time Class 4A 100-meter champion and won two 200-meter state titles.

 

Binford, 6-0, 185 pounds, signed with the Colts as a free agent on June 15, 2017. He previously spent time with the Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Soul (Arena League). Binford attended Lindenwood University-Belleville for two seasons (2012-13) where he caught 43 passes for 978 yards and nine touchdowns.

    • You see how that's a conflation of two separate issues? (With a sprinkling of a third issue, tbh.)   1) Team A picking at #15 might have a problem with Hockenson, maybe their evaluation of his talent or character or whatever. Maybe they have a second round grade on him. Team B picking at #26 might have Hockenson as a top ten player on their board. And maybe a handful of other teams between those two have higher grades on different players that align with their needs, or maybe they aren't disciplined in their approach or have different draft philosophies. Maybe some of those teams don't see positional value in TEs, so they pass on Hockenson, leaving him available at #26. Again, the point is that not every team has the same board, and there are many reasons why that might be the case.   2) You're adding in the quality of the evaluation. Team B might think more highly of the player than anyone else, and maybe they're right and he turns out to be a stud. Maybe they're wrong, and he's a dud. But that's a question of player evaluation, not draft strategy.   3) Gronk was a second rounder himself. And he's turning out to be one of the best TEs in NFL history. Anyone saying 'Hockenson is the next Gronk' isn't being an honest evaluator, and I don't want my GM drafting players because he's convinced they'll be the next HOF player at any position. The odds stacked heavily against that. (I said the same last year to everyone claiming Barkley was a guaranteed HOFer who would singlehandedly elevate any offense to the top of the league.) That's a way to rationalize drafting a player you're in love with. It's not a disciplined draft strategy.
    • Agreed. My over arching point to BPA vs needs discussion is that the terms themselves can have different meanings, so the various good points made can get lost in the wash.   But I do think the preponderance of thinking lists BPA agnostic of attributes for a given scheme, which is how the national websites tend to do it.  So when GMs pick the 45th ranked player with pick 33, many criticize the pick as "reaching" for a need because they they don't stop to think that 5 or 6 players ranked in between weren't even considered a good fit for the team to begin with.   
    • Him and Lewis will elevate that draft class even higher. 
    • You're putting your own "spin" on this.  It has everything to do with what Ballard chose to do.   Ballard could have prevented his players from hitting free agency at all by overpaying them in the first place.   He doesn't want to overpay, so he "allows" them to hit free agency, find out that no team will overpay, then "brings" them back at their true value.
    • Yes I know, I wasn't going to list all possibilities.  I just listed one possibility to illustrate there is more to it than one person "letting" him test the market then "bringing" him back.     My point was about the tone of the comment coupled with the lack of substance supporting the tone of the comment.   But I see throughout the thread that typical sensitivities about broader things have surfaced so y'all carry on.
