Only 28 years old. Anyone see us making this move as a possibility?

 

KC Chiefs wanted to go after Earl Thomas, till the injury happened; I can see them making a move to bolster their secondary.

 

I can also see the Rams moving after losing Talib for the season. If you are a contender, who needs just a player or two to get you over the top, it makes sense, not for us.

I can see him being moved to an afc team, hard for me to believe he’ll be sent to a division rival

I'll do a 3rd round pick 

That's actually probably a fair price to pay.  although I could see them wanting more since his dead money were he to be cut before the end of his deal makes him low risk if he doesn't pan out.  In other words, because the remainder of his contract is appealing, it might naturally make the bidding process more competitive.

Peterson is a good CB, if the price wasn't too high, I'd do it, but I don't realistically think this something he'd want or Ballard would do.

 

I get the impression Ballard has an eye for DB's and isn't inclined to invest heavy capital at the position.

Based on all the previous trade discussion on these boards, I would say the majority of Colts fans would be ok with this trade if we only give up a 7th round pick in 2020, and the Cardinals pick up the majority of the salary. Otherwise they are against it.

I’d love it. That’s one less position we would need to address in the draft. I’d give a 2nd and a mid round pick for arguably the best corner in the league.

 

He is more of a man CB though, he will want man CB money, so I doubt we will even go after him.

Anyone who says that is trolling, guys been to the pro bowl the past seven years, has two interceptions this year  IN SPITE OF most teams being afraid to throw his way

Wait, doesn't he want out in part because he's not a great fit for their zone defense? He's a great press man guy, I don't think he'd really wanna come here.

That needs to be known almost immediately before any real discussion can take place.

This is just reaffirming to me that Ballard is going to be able to use more than FA to bring in impact talent. The NFL is becoming much more trade-friendly with so many players becoming interchangeable. 

 

This offseason I hope he puts his cap space to work.

Lol..... Yeah seems like plenty here are against adding top talent. Especially if it's fair market price. haha

Peterson is going on year 9 in the NFL, this wouldn't be a young Vontae type trade. That's a lot of miles even though he's not old age wise.

 

I'd pass and just draft one with one of those #2's we have.

What's going on with Gareon Conley to where the Raiders want to get rid of him this early?  Ballard seems to like Ohio State players.  Wonder if he'd get one of Apple or Conley?  The schemes they played in at Ohio State are similar to what we play here in Indy I do believe.   I know Tyquan Lewis said it was virtually the same, but maybe he was just talking about on the D Line .

There is not much dead money remaining, only stg like 1.2 mills, thats not much. The Cardinals also payed 4 mills of his 11 mill 2018 salary though, so - considering that he also earned 7 games of money - he'c cost something like 5 mills or less for the new team for 2018. That's bargain price. Which, you are right, might elevate the asking price regarding picks (or compensational players).

I don't think Peterson is going to want to go to a non-contending team.  Otherwise he'd just stay put in Phoenix.  The only way I could see it is if he felt like that team was just a year away, then he could ride out the rest of this season and get the scheme down and then make a run with that team next season.  The question would be are the Colts that team?  There is little doubt he would help this team.

Well just off top of my head Josh Gordan for a 5th rounder... Carlos Hyde is not a Top talent rb But is better than Turbin/Wilkins. He too coulda been had for a 5th.

Gordon is one more failed test away from being gone a long time.   But he certainly would have helped us.   No reason to trade for hyde.  Our backs are good and younger

We’re not getting him anyway, but i dont think it would be good for us to get him. He is going for at least a first round and few other picks, after the Cooper trade.  He is good on the exact opposite scheme that our defense plays, so we wouldn’t using him at full potential. It would mess up all the rebuild plan that we have. I rather address our issues through Draft and FA, i rather stick to the plan than picking up a player that would have some impact in our team, but not enough to make us top of the league

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
