He has such a cool story. Since he didn’t start playing until college his age doesnt concern me. He had a great year.

Good news!!!  He's made some big plays for us and is always a threat to block FG's.  Glad he was re-signed.

I know I'm being petty, but it's re-sign (with a hyphen)

It’s nice to see colt players congratulating him on this. Ebron and Kenny Moore tweeted that they are very happy for him.

So Hunt is back and we still have Autry for another 2 years. This makes me think the Colts are going to go after a developmental DT in the draft unless Wilkins falls. They also have said they would like to move Lewis to 3T on certain plays. Maybe they go after Dre’Mont and let him bulk up and learn to play the run. Or another guy I like is Wren. Needs to learn to use his hands, but likely has the same measurables and upside that Ballard saw in Turray.

 

Good to have Hunt back. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!!!

In my off-season mock, I had Hunt re-signing for 2 Years/$8 Mil, so I think the actual contract is pretty good. He's a solid rotational DL and we have plenty of cap space to keep him for $9 Million over two years.

Whew! Glad to see that he was re-signed and didn't resign -- some here do struggle mightily with the English language. Hunt did some nice work last season, and he still has plenty of mileage left on his tires.

No,  it's not petty at all.     It's the English language.     The two words are spelled different and have completely different meanings.

 

Resign and Re-sign are NOT the same.    It's not just a minor issue.   They're completely different words.

 

Always good that you pointed that out!      :thmup:

Very, very pleased with this signing!

 

I hope we have 2-3 signing announcements every day this week!    We have lots of our own to re-sign before we start buying players in Free Agency.

Quite surprised about this, expected to but he played well early on in the season and fell off towards the end of the season.

We basically more than doubled his pay from last year and gave it a bit of a sweetner too.

 

$9 mill for 2 years with the possibility of an additional $1 Mill in bonuses!   

 

Nicely done by all.

Just saw this on my Colts app.  Good to bring him back.  

 

4.5 to 5 mil per year for 2 years is a good deal.

In sports, You always look to improve. Even if you win the Championship, you always find ways to add better quality players.

Yes. I always felt Hunt will be back before Woods, for the value he brought to Eberflus' D.

 

Good re-signing!!!

Pretty good value, especially if he continues to start on the d-line.

Very nice signing. Even if he is just a rotational player by the end of the contract if he keeps playing like he's played last two seasons, he will be more than worth his contract. You can never have enough good rotational linemen and Margus has established himself as one.

His play fell off a bit cause his assignment changed. Started year as DE, than DT. Woods went down he went to NT.

A draft pick for NT or a FA signing for NT is definitely coming, IMO.

I think Tillery makes a lot of sense because he can play 3tech or Al Woods Spot.   Grover Stewart and Tillery could rotate. Stewart was doing some good things at the end of the year playing for Al Woods.

Ballard continues practicing what he preaches. Reward your guys that perform. Hunt sets a tone for these young guys to follow. Great signing in my opinion, regardless of age.

So tell me, who do you want us to re-sign? I can't find more than Inman I want to keep of the rest.

Don't think Tillery is a NT.

 

He supposedly played this year at 305.      Showed up to the Combine at 295.    Don't think he's playing the NT in the NFL at those weights.    IMO,  he's a 3-tech all the way....

I think we should re-sign Desir for a couple more years. Gives Wilson a couple more years to mature and come into his own.

Now we need to lock up several more of our FA's... before they hit the market and drive up the price.  Then we will know our real cap space.  Resigning Hunt is a solid step.

I’m really surprised he is coming back I thought he was going to get some big bucks in free agency but I’m glad he’s staying

My biggest takeaway from this re-signing is him saying :

“The locker room that’s here and the people that Chris and coach has brought in, and the chemistry that we have now, it was something I didn’t want to change out for anything else."

 

This makes me think what the coaches have been saying is very much real and tangible.  Might be a player selling tool to other free agents like Collins.  Hooker is good friends with him, so maybe we really have a shot with him.

 

Hunt was a very solid piece to the D-line.  was top 20 in NFL in TFL's also.

I think it comes down to do you really want to leave a good situation for a couple million more bucks. When your already making millions is a couple more really a big deal. I personally would take less if I knew I was in a good situation and might have a chance to win a SB in the future. Hopefully we can get a couple FA with that same mentality and re-sign a couple of our own.

I am thrilled with this signing.    Great attitude and little risk for little money.    Nice job Ballard!

 I wouldn't consider him a quality starter worthy of more than he got.
What was interesting to watch was his going from being used by the previous regime as a read and react DT (at times) and seeing him get run over.
 Eber had him pounding the A gap all day long and he was good at it.
I hope he isn't the starter for long if at all, but knowing if we have injuries he can still be solid if he does get a bunch of snaps. Quality depth IMO.

    • I don’t have to dumb myself down and accept or agree with everything my team does to be a fan of that team.  I’m a Colts fan because that is the team I fell in love with.  Simple as that. Doesn’t mean I close my eyes to their faults and shortcomings.  I support them in spite of them and hope for them to rise above. You can do better than that one man.  Lol    The Colts are a professional team in the business world of sports entertainment.  You should not be making decisions in the best interest of your business enterprise based on emotion.  It seldom leads to success.  I hate the Pats but their model is proven successful in these type of situations.  Irsay has found little success following his heart of late.  It is what it is.  Fandom has nothing to do with it.  
    • Ok so then why are you a Colts fan and not a Patriots fan? If the win at all costs and stone cold business like approach is what you desire in a franchise what are you doing here? You made the case and presented evidence that that’s just how we do business. Which is true.    Why there’s such an inability for people to understand it, and acknowledge it for what it is is beyond me.    People have no sense of the depth of reality here. To them Adam is just a character on a weekly television show that can be written off and replaced without a second thought.    The reality of the situation is different. It’s just not that cut and dried. 
    • He's certainly not irredeemable. There's just a lot more scrutiny that comes with the QB position, fair or not. You can be WR and do drugs, beat women/kids, and still get more chances. CK did none of that.   I'm pretty sure uncle Jim put a foot up his backside, and made a call to Frank. I hope that's enough (Jim's foot), and I think the Colts (and Frank) are a good spot to provide support for him. 
    • I've been touting 2020 as "the year" for a while now.  I might be a year too early, but in watching the league this year one thing has struck me:  there aren't any truly "elite" teams out there.  Yes some are better than others, but IMHO the difference between the top and the bottom isn't as great as it used to be.  The Colts are clearly among the average teams, so I think with another shrewd draft (and that Skins round 2 pick sure looks good!) and a couple of impact FA's, I think this team can contend next year.  And Mr. Brady isn't going to be around much longer either.
