There are a lot of safeties on the market right now. Maybe none as talented as Collins but it should be a buyers market from here on out. I'm hoping for Adrian Amos. He would be an upgrade from Geathers at what should be a substantially better value than Collins.

And probably no on else for that matter. They will only look for value in FA and that will be more likely after the  frenzy settles.

Understood. But he won't demand Collins money and is a darn good player in his own right. He's my choice at S, for what its worth. Hope it happens.

Love the report that the Colts were seriously interested in Collins.  LOL.

 

Once the agent was talking $45M guaranteed, I'm sure Ballard stayed in the conversation about 2 minutes.

BTW, how much guaranteed money did Andrew Luck get in his new deal?  It wasn't really that long ago.

I believe it was around $44M or so guaranteed at signing. But somewhere around $85-90M in total guarantees and he got $75M over the first 3 years.

    • Many people on here are calling forca LT to be drafted as Castonzo is in his contract year and is pushing the 30+ threshold.   A large majority of folks forget about a low risk high reward free agent that Ballard signed in 2018 who spent the season on the Practice Squad in one Antonio Garcia from Troy by way of the Patriots.   He was drafted in the 3rd Round in 2017 as Nate Solders replacement. He developed some blood c.lot (it auto-corrects to Colts without the period) issues and lost roughly 70 lbs.   He has since regained strength and weight and is now being tutored by one of the best line coaches ever.   Here is the draft clip from that year, listen to the parallels in what Mayock has to say. Sounds exactly like a Colts player and exactly like the Colts current roster situation!   http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-draft/0ap3000000804395/Patriots-select-Antonio-Garcia-No-85-in-the-2017-NFL-Draft
    • he was drafted in the 4th.
    • Just did one with their board that I'd be ecstatic about.  4 rounds only.    26: R1P26 DL CHRISTIAN WILKINS CLEMSON   34: R2P2 S DARNELL SAVAGE MARYLAND   59: R2P27 OT KALEB MCGARY WASHINGTON   89: R3P25 WR MILES BOYKIN NOTRE DAME   129: R4P27 Te JACE STERNBERGER TEXAS A&M   135: R4P33 LB MACK WILSON ALABAMA
    • No one will ver give up a second to sign him. I think it was the only way for the Colts to assure he stayed with the team . He was not drafted so no compensation if not tendered with a second. They could have just used the "right of first refusal ." That would give them the option to match any offer Boehm might receive. Maybe would have saved some money as it's hard to believe another team would offer 3.1 mill or more ?   But yeah , I'm sure the Colts are with you as they would have happily taken a 2nd for Bohm.
    • Focus on the exam, and then drive for day 2.  Studies come first.
