Brissett hasn't done enough to garner a 2nd rd pick IMO.

If a team needs a QB that bad they would draft him in rd 1.

The only way we might get a #2 pick for Brissett is if someone lost a QB during mid season.

Exactly. People forget that even Jimmy G. was got for only a 2nd round pick last year. Brissett will likely garner a 3rd Round Pick.

I went high for Jarrett because his production is about the same as Suh. Suh is making 14 mil. Jarrett is 4 or 5 years younger and Donald is't playing right next to him either. You're probably right though it's high. How much you think he gets wherever he goes?

I would say Jarrett gets a 3 yr/36 million contract with a cap-friendly team like the Jets. 14.9 million would make him one of the highest paid linemen in the league. I would love to have him under $12 million a year, however.

Is Brissett worth keeping on the roster even if a 3rd pick is offered?

I say yes. While Luck is looking good that could change on one play. We paid the price for not having a good backup to our starting QB. Sometimes having insurance pays off. Not having insurance is a gamble.

I agree depending on who is available come draft day. I really do believe that Ballard wants to keep Brissett unless offered a solid 2nd round pick this off-season. But, if one of our top guys is available in the early 3rd round, I wouldn't be surprised if Ballard pulled the trigger either.

I don't see us bringing Slauson back. So we give up a 2nd and 4th round pick, and our backup QB to draft a guy to sit the bench behind Castonzo? If you make a move like that, then you have to have a plan in place, like moving one guy to RT and moving Smith back inside.

I think Williams may go earlier than 10th anyway

 

I do see the Colts bringing in OL talent somewhere in the first 3 rounds, this year, and every year

 

I am seeing the importance of the OL more than I ever have.

 

AC is getting up in years, and when he was hurt, we suffered

 

Williams is a rare talent, and could actually play year one at guard, then move to LT (but I dont see it now)  I think we go pass rusher (Polite)

The Saints gave a 3rd round pick for Bridgewater with Brees on the roster.

 

That is a fair point except for the fact that Brees went to school with Abe Lincoln and Wilson is slightly younger.  Not quite an apples to apples comparison.  The same could be said for the Pats investing picks in both Brissett and Jimmy G.  Both Brady and Brees were / are at ages when their teams have to start planning for the future.

What exactly was on Garoppolo's resume that garnered a 2nd round pick for him?

Good point.  Not much from what I can see.  I could swear Garoppolo was traded with only one year remaining on his contract.  The same situation Brissett is in at the end of this year.  Not 100% sure on that though.    Brissett also has a lot of good film out there compared to Garoppolo before he was traded.

I don't think we would have a problem finding a veteran backup if we traded Brissett.  I would trust Ballard on that one.  I think we are talking at least a 2nd. or a veteran starter in his prime if he is traded.

I would be happy with a 2 or a 3

 

AND....... get a FA backup AND a QB to develop in later (5 or later) round

 

Of course, we circle around this topic a bunch (Some people are adament on both sides of the opinion..... which is fine) I'm in agreement on the topic, but it will all pan out in March/April

 

I went back and forth on the THAT GUY RB (FA from Pittsburgh) Whose name I wont share again until March :)

 

We will ALL know the true value in the league for Briskett Brissett AND if THAT GUY, is wearing a shoe on his helmet (or not) in March

 

Once I make the case a few times, I tend to try to drop it and see what happens....

 

Sometimes I get drawn back in..........   Its that dang MPstack guy .....

Just Kidding....... :)

 

Peace on earth.... good will to Man

That potential trade could have been a three way trade involving Seattle, Dallas and us. MP, you get sooooo worked up when anyone mentions the rumor. Don't understand the vitriol you show for anyone even thinking or suggesting that we could get a 2nd for JB. I  think we can get a 2nd as I personally think he has starter potential in this league. However, I don't know and you don't know what other teams value him at so why be so upset when it is discussed. He has value and as I stated in previous threads this will be discussed up until draft day or the day he is traded so live with it.

I actually like Walter Football's draft board for us. I'm a little torn between Harmon and Harry, but either one would be a tremendous pick. Kendall Willekes is the pick that intrigues me the most. He reminds me of a T.J Watt. 

I'd add another offensive lineman too.

IMO, the Colts will draft a top notch young DT rather than pay an outrageous salary to Jarrett. He's not worth $15 mil per year. He's not worth $12 mil per year. At least, not to the Colts, because he's not the game changer that would justify blowing up the salary structure of the team. Wait for the top caliber free agent WR/receiving TE who wants to play with a great QB such as Luck and is free to choose. THAT guy could be a game changer, and worth the gamble.

Welcome to the forums @FirsTime!

You'll find that all of us are armchair GM's; believing that we could manage a team better than anyone who is actually paid to do the job.  At least when we're not posting a variation of "I'm not stupid, you're stupid".  Am looking forward to your thoughts and posts as we go through the off season, the Combine, the Draft, and free agency.  Cheers!

Thank you! 

 

I still think Ballard is gonna spend this free agency. I don't know where exactly but I could see a couple D-lineman and drafting a couple as well. 

 

I agree with drafting an O-lineman in the first three rounds. I think that is going to keep happening. 

 

As for WR there aren't really any good ones this FA class. The only good one IMO just got resigned. I think the draft would be the way to go whether it be Brown, Brown, Harry, Harmon, etc...

 

I really have a hunch Ballard is gonna spend some money and make some moves. This is going to be a very exciting off-season!! Thanks for all the feedback everyone!

The Jets #2 which of course is ours, will be a high one, most likely the 3ed pick in the second round, pick #35. We can get 3 quality starters with our 1 and 2 and the Jets 2. With those three we need another quality OT, and good DB and maybe a deep threat WR. We need a RB as well, but FA could address some of that as well.

    • That's on the upper end of WR2 money. Gonna say their calcs are off lol... Pascal is a great depth guy, but IMO he's too much of a tweener. Runs great routes, but isn't fast, and lacks some of the measurables. If he was faster, he'd make a great slot or Z. If he were bigger, he'd make a great X. He's just caught in between as a small X or slow/big slot. I'd say he's more 3/4, than 4/5. I'd love to keep him as that 4 guy. Just my opinion, but I think he'd make a good possession slot. Burton is getting those reps now. Will be interesting to see the re-shuffle once Pittman gets back at X.
    • Yup. Has zero to do with race, and everything to do with his ability to read, progress, etc.. Good guy and all, just not very good. Wasn't really that good in college either. He's likely better off in another scheme to be honest where there is less focus on reads and progressions. Chud's O was probably better suited for him as it's more throw-to-spot, than read, progress, and make a bunch of decisions. But to bring race into the discussion is silly given most of the top QBs in the league (Mahomes, Wilson, Jackson, Prescott, Watson, etc.). Nobody cares about that.
    • https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/zach-pascal-22405/market-value/   i can’t believe Pascal’s perceived contract value is being shown at 8.4 million avg and 4yrs. That is a lot of money for a guy who really hasn’t put together an entire season or even really half of a season with numbers that make you feel he has more to his ceiling. He at times has made some plays and looked like is he breaking out and then he levels back out. He is a usable 4/5th receiver imho but nowhere near 8 million $/yr. wow! 
    • He wasn't horrible. He had the lowest completion rate of DBs in his limited time. He did look lost at times, but that's to be expected for a rook changing positions. Keep in mind Tell was a FS at USC, and converted to CB last year. He's built like a tall corner, so filling in for Moore at NB probably wasn't ideal. Can he play NB, IDK. He was never physical in college. He's also not fast (4.6ish). He did score well in agility in the shuttle though.   I really don't know where he'll fit. Not fast enough IMO to play CB1 or CB2. Not sure if he's physical enough to play NB or SS. Probably fine to play split safety in a two high. If he could toughen up, could be good at NB, dime, or SS, but he was never that guy in college. Perhaps a rona year hitting the weights will help. 
    • Brissett was given every opportunity to prove himself to the coaches and GM and he failed.  He's a good back up QB and that is where he is at.  He had 2 seasons and was given a huge pay check.   He is an average starter at best.   Bringing race into this discussion is stupid.
