ESPN Off-season Dominoes

Recommended Posts

http://www.espn.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/25901330/predicting-2019-nfl-offseason-dominoes-free-agents-trades-cause-ripples

 

Colts signings in some of the scenarios.

 

Ansah DE:

Colts sign:

Ansah 4yr $64m $35guar

 

If Raiders sign Ansah, it has us signing:

Za'Darius Smith 4yr $48m

 

Earl Thomas S:

If Thomas signs with SF, it has the Colts signing:

Steven Nelson CB 4yr $32m

 

Then trading pick #26 while Colts get 4th rounder back for:

Xavien Howard CB Miami

 

Just thought it was worth a post.

 

Go check it out, has a few players on there, explanations are pretty good, at least for the Colts side.

I thought the trade for Howard was interesting.  I didn't realize he was on the block.  Miami might be needing a new QB as well, and Flores and Chad O'Shea are familiar with Brissett.

Under the Thomas signing with SF I am not seeing the Colts signing of Nelson or the trade.  Instead it is showing TB signing T. Mathieu.  Nothing on the Colts.

It still shows it for me. Was thinking for a moment after reading your post that it might change, but it still shows the Colts moves. Have to scroll down more.

If we spend 15 million a yr on Ansah, CB needs tested. How many games has the older player missed in the past 4 seasons? Hard pass.

He wont spend that kind of money on someone that injury prone.

I can't get it to scroll down on my computer.  I don't know why.  I will go directly to ESPN site and look for it.  Thanks

That Ansah deal almost made lose my lunch. $64M with more than half gtd to a 30 year-old DE coming off an injury? Ansah's selling point is that he would be much cheaper than other options and not require a massive deal. That seems to completely negate that. If we are looking at older vets...Gerald McCoy is who I would like to see.

 

Za'Darius Smith deal is pretty bad as well. Consider me a pass on BAL role players coming off one good season. Never seems to work out well for the signing team. Kick in a couple more million per year and the Colts can likely get a much better player for that money.

 

Nelson is intriguing...I will say that.

 

Howard is a stud. Make that a late 2nd round pick (or Brissett + one of the 4th rounders)...and we are talking. A 1st round pick is a bit rich, given the team's needs.

    • If DeAndre Baker falls past Denver, I wouldn't mind trading pick #26 and Brissett to the Dolphins in order to acquire him. That would be a deal both teams might agree to if the Dolphins are indeed interested.
    • He's my favorite FA or even early round pickup at WR this offseason 
    • I laughed when seeing "QB" listed as a team need on OnTheClock 2019.  That being said, I have to wonder if it's worth taking a flyer on a QB like Kyle Shurmur and either deal him or Brissett going forward.
    • Having faith without knowing why is "blind faith". At least when I supported certain picks that Grigson chose (like Dorsett), it was because I thought they were good and I was wrong. It wasn't because Grigson was our GM and I felt an obligation that I had to "follow" his every move. He did have 3 straight winning years and advanced further each time, but it became apparent by the end of 2014 that his drafting and FA signings were poor (besides the early part of the 2012 draft), and Luck was carrying the team. Luck got hurt afterward, but it's not like Grigson's drafting or FA signings got better. We were a team carried by Luck and the previous regimes players from 2012-2016. I didn't notice it completely until after the Pats AFC Championship game where we were completely outmatched, but I did notice poor patterns before that (especially missing on 1st round picks).   I'm just saying that the people who say that Ballard knows more than other "armchair GM's" would also say the same about Grigson, so they were merely guessing and were right on Ballard just like they were wrong about Grigson with "blind faith". I don't know, that line just bugs me a lot. Most people who say that also don't predict ahead of time who is good and who isn't, they are extremists in an either positive or negative way, and both are poor viewpoints IMO. Ok, rant over! 
    • I'd give up a second round pick for him.
