Tampering is upon us!

Recommended Posts

To me, every year, the next 2-3 days are the most exciting of the offseason.  Wonder if we'll have any leaks from today happen.  If they do, I'll post them here.

 Desir was a STUD twice against D Hopkins. A lot of value there.
 And the Giants had to love the despair on Amari Cooper's face when Desir embarrassed him. They see some serious value there.

I don't think it would be all that hard to replace Desir.

Want Za'darius Smith the most of these guys. Ray would be a good cheap option as well.

 I hope they still believe in Turay. And Lewis has Stud potential on Sheard's side.
I am crossing my fingers for Preston Smith. Autry can also take snaps outside in rush situations after we add a VG inside guy with rush ability.

I agree there are good players in the draft plus some good options in FA as well. We still got jalen collins on the team too

Fowler got 14, Flowers will

prob get about 17

Yeah, Flowers will be for sure in that range.  However, looks like there is a LOT of FA Edge Rushers combined with a plurality of edge rushers and DL in the draft.  Kind of an oddity if you ask me

The corner FA market is incredibly weak.   So unless it’s internal, like Wilson, I’m not sure who you think solves the problem.  

 

I dont think we can we can count on a drafted rookie to step in...

Jason Verrett is someone id like us to look at if Desir walks

That is quite an underwhelming group overall...given how old some of those guys are and how expensive some other guys will be for the level of player they are.

 

Flowers is going to get paid...and not sure Ballard will feel comfortable doing that. I don't think I would.

 

I am not totally opposed to Ansah on a short-term deal...but the price would have to be right and the Colts would have to have some insurance against injury.

 

Preston Smith seems like a decent signing to replace Sheard with a player of similar talent. But I imagine he won't cost the same as Sheard did.

 

All in all...I think there is probably a player or two that they can add to the rotation...but they are going to need some luck in the draft.

Jaylen Collins may be one of those guys.   Ballard found Desir off the scrap heap.

I trust if he let him test the market he's got something in mind the same as he did

last year.   We've had rookies step in under this scheme before, so it wouldn't be

the first time.  It's not ideal but I remember Jerraud Powers stepping in a couple

years ago and doing a pretty solid job.  If we keep Desir I'm cool with that but I dont

think it would be that hard to replace him.

Looks like Luck really was interested in recruiting Mosley when he asked him if he was a FA during the Pro-Bowl.... LOL

 

I like Mosley and Preston Smith....,. those 2, plus Collins.... then turn to the Draft please!

The Colts will probably be linked to half of the free agents on the market this week. There will be a lot of smoke, there probably won't be much actual fire.

Most likely.

I don't think Zadarius Smith is the best fit for us other than being multiple.  He's good from the inside but he's not all that great coming off the edge.

This is my most wanted free agent for this team. He wouldn't kill us cap wise, and would complete this LB core with Leonard and Walker, making our LB core potentially the best in football. And he's only 26 so he has many years left in him and has good command of the defense. Walker and Leonard are better suited for free roam outside backers.

It’s funny seeing our name linked to all these players. That is a lot of players. Maybe one or two will happen.

If we would spend on Mosley and Collins and call it a FA I wouldn't be mad.....sign an under the radar guy like Shane Ray for extra edge pursuit and I'd call it a major win, IMO.

Can Walker or Mosley play SS LB?  I honestly don't know.

Would be a great signing but again this is just speculation. Pelissero just said they COULD pursue him. The Colts and Jets are mentioned in every report simply because they have the most cap space.

If we did make this move, Walker would most likely move to SAM

Agree...would be a bad signing for what he will cost. Offers nothing from the edge...and it's not difficult to find less athletic DE types to kick inside. No sense in paying $10M+ for one. And to be honest...I don't think he's all that impressive on the interior either.

 

I think he's Tyquan Lewis with better run defense. But Lewis at least has some upside from the interior and his run defense will get better. I really hope the Colts stay away.

Assuming these guys have competent agents...then it might be even more than that.

I would have entertained that deal. But this means that Jordan Hicks is likely going to get away now. I am fall for bringing him into the mix.

    • Sounds like TEN is all in on him. If the Colts don't get him...I hope it's because he chooses TEN...not because they offered more. TEN only has $21M in cap space...so the offer can't be huge. The Colts have more cap space and more potential flexibility with other moves...so they should have no issue matching TEN. Clowney is a no-brainer on a 1-2 year deal in that $16M range.
    • The probowl is also largely controlled by fan vote.  If we were getting prime time games and people were talking about Leonard and Walker being one of the best LB duos in the league, a lot more people would know his name.   I am not disagreeing with you that he's probably not in the top 5 ILBs in the AFC, but 124 tackles are legitimate.  Outside of Indy fans, it's not like Walker's a common household name.  If we're playing on prime time, and SportsCenter is talking about the guy and people start to know him, he'd have a case to get votes.   I mean, Leonard was an absolute beast as a rookie and didn't make pro-bowl but made 1st team all-pro (which is a much harder/greater accomplishment, IMO).  Why?  Because he played for a small market team and very few fans knew who he was outside of Indy.  Jack Doyle got in as an alternate last year when his numbers weren't even in the top 10 for TEs.  Why? Because he made it several years ago and fans know his name now.  Xavier Rhodes had the worst season of his career by far last year and got in? Why because people know who he is.  Not saying I think Walker should be in the pro-bowl, but there's a shot if he keeps putting up 120+ tackles and gets more hype that he'll get votes.
    • Well Chinn projects more into a SS role so maybe not much early on. He could play the FS position after a year or two if needed. It would say more to Khari Willis.   But with Geathers gone you need someone who can also play that nickel LB role and match up with TEs. That’s what Chinn would do.
    • Trey Burton? I guess... I do think he moves more like a TE than a WR. He's obviously very fast. But his body control, footwork, change of direction, hand/eye coordination, hand usage, hips, bend, etc., are not great. Just to be a good route runner, regardless of the matchup, he has to put in a lot of work and get a lot better. I could see him being used in a lot of ways, and he's a physical blocker on the outside.
