Should the Colts bring Demaryius Thomas in?

Recommended Posts

Negative. What is he, 31-32? He wouldn't offer much more than what we already have

I'd like to see the Colts at least give it a look.  

If they can bring him in on the cheap, I'd be happy.  

He is 31, but he is big and we need some size at WR.

Oh Gawd! :headspin:
We couldn't maximize his value with Bell getting 80 catches.  :funny:

And then the Colts sign RB Bell lol

 Ballard's own words tell ME that will get no consideration. 
 Unless he does a 1 year low $$$ prove it deal, he would surely at least consider that i suppose.

Coming off of his second achilles injury, i say no. 

I didn't realize it was his second.   Was his first one in his second year in the league?

 

I would consider it (at a low price) because he is only 31 and the Colts really needed another WR with experience last season.  

I'd also be Ok with passing on him.

Well I think that goes without saying.

That a joke? Hes in his thirties, coming off a major injury, wouldn't be ready to go at the start of the season, and hasn't been productive for years.

He's 31.

Had 83/949 in 2017

Had 90/1083 in 2016

 

That is pretty productive.  

Again, I am not saying that they should pursue him and give him a huge contract, just that they should kick the tires.

I would go with him over any of our WR's outside of Hilton.

 

Of course it would depend on the injury.

Hilton hasn't had more than 6 the past 4 seasons.   

TD's should not define a player.

Really? Thats your argument? A guy twice hilton's size scores the same amount of tds?

Yes, on the second year.

Not two years ago.

Not ever.

Im not hig on D. Thomas but wouldnt mind having a seasoned WR take the #2 for a  (partial) year...let Cain, Fountain or (insert Rookie WR) ease into and take over the #2 by season end

I remember reading on Walter Football how Demaryius Thomas switched to the same horrible diet that ruined Arian Foster's career.  In Fantasy Football 2018 I drafted Thomas in the 8th round and still took a beating for drafting him at all.  Him and Dez will be playing poker every 3rd Sunday this season.  

 

Don't believe the hype that we need to burn an early round pick on a WR.  Cain will be back and Ballard will find a value guy in FA.

I agree, bringing in a veteran wr is a need this off-season, even if one is drafted

That is why I thought the Colts should look at Thomas. 

Perhaps he could be a value signing.   I can't imagine he will get a big contract from anyone.

Why should Bell take a prove it deal when his former team franchise tagged him? What does he need to prove if he has been compensated as top 5-10 salaried RB?

What a stupid, shortsighted trade.  Houston actually gave up a 4th round draft pick for that guy.

 

If they knew he would tear his Achilles, I'm sure they would have recalculated.

    • Was just listening to Dan Dakich.  He brought up the idea that I did earlier.  That this entire ankle/leg issue could be a made up thing just as a way out.   Remember, he was fine after the season ended.  Zero mention of a leg issue . Then he went to Europe, got married, and came back with a 'calf'.    Huh?   Did he stumble and hurt himself walking to the altar?   And everyone who has seen him train this year?  Says he looks fine.  No sign of an injury.  Doctors couldn't figure it out.  Why?  No injury?     Went through those drills last week, looked great, and then he says that he thought it might be his last time on the Lucas Oil stadium field.   Makes zero sense.  Other than this has been in his mind for quite a while.
    • It's not nearly as bad, or as big of deal as you are making it out to be. Even in the stories I have seen and read today it's not getting that much attention.  The Colts not going after the money they could get back is what's getting the press.    The booing won't have any effect on FAs; If anything, the absence of an elite QB will be a bigger issue when it comes to attracting FAs.        
    • Yeah...I shouldn't have said active. I meant games he has appeared in.   But if you just look at active games...he will have played in more than half...which is still pretty incredible for a guy drafted into the situation he was. 
    • I do agree with Jimmy our owner too. Andrew isn't really being selfish when you remember all the millions of dollars he leaving on the table.   If you're heart's not in the game anymore because your body keeps betraying you, I could see why turning the page to something else seems appealing to Luck. You watch his press conference & can't help but feel for the guy & what he's endured since he first got here in 2012. He raves about Mathis, Wayne, Hilton, Adam V. The guy doesn't have a malicious bone in his body man. He loves INDY & her diehard fans. The guy is genuinely broken up emotionally over this decision man. He didn't reach it lightly at all.    The funny thing about rage & anger is this: It's only a burden to those who carry it & refuse to release it & let it go over time. Fans have a right to be upset just remember that no one was hoodwinked, swindled, or lied to here. The situation was abrupt, unexpected, even awkward perhaps, but I honestly don't think this news was withheld on purpose by anybody inside the Colts organization. Life teaches us to adapt all the time. The only constant is change & our organization will handle this change with professionalism, dignity, & a sense of renewed purpose like we always do. 
    • I am pretty sure he was active for all 16 games plus two playoff games last year.
