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.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
