Ballard will not be taking a linebacker early at all and would be shocked if he did in this draft. Also, you're judging a rookie who has played minimal snaps and that hasn't played as much and is saying linebacker will be addressed in this draft. The guy needs more playing time! Lmao. I agree he has made mistakes, sure has. Every rookie does. Plus not every rookie is a Darious Leonard. Leonard has made plenty mistakes in the run this year as well as Walker. Walker was actually missing a bunch of tackles earlier in the season. All I'm saying is the guy is getting better every week and is making plays. Thats what happens when rookies start to play more. They get more adjusted to the speed, scheme, roles etc. An interception for 2 points. Has a forced fumble in the past 2 games. Walker is no scrub don't get me wrong but Okereke is ascending right now. Won't be shocked at all if he starts at the Mike position come 2020.
I think Wilson just resigned with the Seahawks. If we build a around a young guy we will be fine. The chiefs and ravens are doing just fine. We have to get through the 2020 season first. With added weapons and everyone staying healthy we will be fine with Jacoby next season.
Since he'll be a FA at season's end, this claim being a move for the future only works if we sign him to a longer contract during the rest of the season.
Once the season ends, he's a FA and any team can sign him.
So, he'll have to get some playing time in front of AV in order to see if he's worthy of resigning, unless the Colts just want to evaluate him in practice, which I doubt.
I assume he'll play, and Vinny will sit.
Vinny might be allowed to try to get his 600th FG, but I also assume Reich wants the best chance to win games.
Of course. Had Luck not retired or had it not ended the way it did with him being booed, with no formal retirement ceremony, they probably would have asked for or allowed Vinatieri to retire early this season. After the Luck fiasco, they were walking on eggshells and didn't want to take another hit, didn't want kick a Colt legend, a ring of honor player to the curb several weeks later.
