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.

    • Spent most of my adult life working at Edwards AFB.... Chuck and a handful of test pilots allowed our Air Force to make incredible strides putting their lives on the line there.... pushing the boundaries of the planes they flew.   It was nice to see him get a game ball after we beat  the Texans.     
    • I also watched "some" of the pro bowl & Luck did look bad. But it was the skills challenge that was most telling & depressing.  Now surely Luck isn't gonna come out throwing rockets in a silly contest, but the lack of zip on his passes & the horrendous accuracy was shocking.  He may have had the lowest score in history.  Maybe hit the closest targets twice.    That, coupled with the bad playoff game, had me really worried about arm fatigue or a dead arm. Maybe understandable coming off his first year back from surgery?  But maybe there's more there???  Then he skips OTA's &, correct me if I'm wrong, his first pass of his first training camp practice vs the defense was an interception...   Then he didn't practice for a while.  Then came out and "gave it one more go" before the Bengals game & retired the following week.  I doubt Luck walks away from the game because of an ankle injury unless major surgery was the only option.  I think it may have been the shoulder.   And because of that & the way he retired, I don't know if we could get two firsts. I can see a first and a second though. Then again, Elway might give us that and then some...    Regardless, barring this team completely coming off the rails or JB getting injured, I don't think you could just give Luck the job back.  I don't know if the majority of the players would just be ok with that.  This is becoming JB's team as each week passes.  If he gets us to the playoffs & wins a game, I think it'll be tough to take the job from him.     Look at the joy with which Doyle celebrates when we score. The way he looks to JB & congratulates him.  Same for the lineman. It's a tight brotherhood in that locker room. And Luck isn't in there everyday like JB is & how can they trust that Luck has that fire back burning in his belly?  Luck may have gotten Drew Bledsoe'd.    If he comes back, you move him to the NFC for the most ransom you can get. Then we finish putting the key pieces to our Dynasty in place with those picks...  
    • I agree.  Hopefully Turay bounces back healthy and we bring in another young DE or 2, which could reduce the amount of snaps Sheard/Houston get next year, but they are both still playing at a high level and are good character guys and all-around football players.  Sure can't hurt to have our young guys get groomed by those 2.   Since Sheard has been back, it seems like there's been significant improvement in Autry's game as well.
    • He was stationed at Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indianapolis (as per that article).  I found he lives in California now, but then googled "Is Chuck Yeager a Colts Fan?" and came up with this:    https://blog.ticketmaster.com/indianapolis-colts-team-fans/   "The team counts among its loyal followers a number of big-time celebrities, including: • Billy Bob Thornton • Famed test pilot Chuck Yeager • Actor Haley Joel Osment • Comedian/former talk show host David Letterman • Actress Elisabeth Shue • Rob Lowe"   _____________ Pretty cool, Mr. Irsay!
