And the crowd goes mild. But seriously, I don't feel too strongly one way or the other on this, especially since it's only a one year deal.

Definitely paid him more than what he's worth, but I'm okay with it considering it's for one year.

I actually reallllly like Funchess. He will ball with Luck. It will be another Ebron scenario

Better than giving Williams $50M I guess. But man...Funchess is a big slow WR. That is a lot of change for a guy with middling production. Would have much rather given Parker a one-year deal.

 

Since it's a one-year deal...I truly hope they still double dip at WR.

Basically he averaged 40 receptions, 600yds and 5td a year with Cam stupid Newton as his QB. I predict 65 receptions, 900yds and 7 TDS. If he locks on as a red zone threat we will be in really good shape. Good signing and helps meeting cap minimum

Golden Tate, Tyrell Williams, Adam Humphries... 

 

... and we get Devin Funchess.

 

The guy can’t get any separation and he drops balls. 

 

What on earth is Ballard thinking? It’s a one year deal but the player could and should have been much better.

"Per multiple reports, the Colts have agreed to terms with receiver Devin Funchess. It’s a one-year deal with a maximum value of $13 million. The base value will be lower than that, perhaps considerably."

Not wild about the move,  I'm not a Funchess fan.   But at least it's only 1-year.  

 

We'll try again next year.

 

We'll also draft at least one WR in April.   Maybe more?

So, it's basically 1 year for $10 million.

How quickly they forget.     You really think you know more about Funchess than Chris Ballard and his team?      Get a grip.

 

What he's thinking is that the market for WR's went way over his comfort level and so he dropped out of the bidding when the numbers went crazy.    And he got a WR he can work with for 1-year.    Too long?     Should we have tried to sign him for a game to game contract?    You think that happens?

 

Ballard is the most disciplined GM in football.    He sets a number and when things get way, way out of whack,  he walks away.     Good for him.    Good for the club.   

 

Nobody was really happy a year ago when we signed Eric Ebron.     How'd that work out?

The length of the deal makes it less crappy I guess. But Funchess is a bum. Slow...low catch %...and no RAC.  

 

I guess this is supposed to be Ballard's Alshon Jeffrey. Not a fan of this.

Golden Tate sucks and is old. Tyrell Williams will sign a Landon Collins-esque dumb contract. And, Adam Humphries... lol, no.

 

Ballard had one of the best offseasons in history last year, people. Maybe cut him a little slack.

I'm done. Collins goes for $14 million and we sign a garbage receiver in Funchess for $13 million. F Ballard. Can't take this anymore.

And if the Colts didn't have Ebron at TE...I might be be alright with Funcess in that role. But as a WR2...no thanks.

Well, I think this tells you several things. 

1. The Colts aren't signing Tyrell Williams. (obvious). The price was too high. 

2. The Colts only signed Funchess for one year. It's a prove it deal in one sense but very expensive. But...only one year. They are obviously going to see what they have with the current group and whomever they draft. And if Funchess proves to be the second coming of Jerry Rice, they have the inside track on signing him. I wouldn't hold my breath, though.

3. And, speaking of the draft........ prepare for the Colts using one of their high picks for a WR. I think that's happening.

Funchess is 24 years old, 6'4 WR.

 

He had Cam Newton's inaccurate arm throwing it to him. Cant judge him on that.

 

We have a year to judge it, I think he is going to have a great year with Luck.

We have to. If funchess is our number 2 we will be in trouble.

Feels a lot like the Ebron signing.  Not a big name, former high draft pick, underperformed/didn't live up to draft status/hype, had a previous issue with drops.  That's a lot of money to give him, but if we aren't gonna sign big names to get to the floor, I have no problem with giving him more on a 1 year deal.

It’ll be okay. Plenty of talent yet to add! Free agency and all of dem picks.

this one feels like we over paid a bit to fill a need.

    • That's an interesting question. Per Spotrac: "Chad Kelly signed a 2 year, $1,230,000 contract with the Indianapolis Colts, including an average annual salary of $615,000. In 2020, Kelly will earn a base salary of $750,000, while carrying a cap hit of $750,000."   However, per John Dixon: "the new CBA eliminates unlimited practice-squad salaries. All practice-squad players are paid a fixed weekly salary established under the CBA — except for Group 4 players, for whom the CBA establishes a minimum and maximum salary. In 2020, both are $12,000 for Group 4; all other practice-squad players will be paid $8,400 per week. In 2022, the Group 4 salaries must be between $15,400 and $19,900, while all others will be paid $11,500."   So I wonder what happens with the 2nd year of Chad's contract (and several other PS players across the league). 
    • I'm not so sure he would survive on the PS.  Last year we paid him a significant salary to keep teams away.  This year we won't be able to.  If he has a good camp and preseason I could see him landing as a backup somewhere even with Cam out there.  I would bet a number of teams would be interested especially at what his contract would look like.  Maybe even the Patriots.  I believe at the end of this year if he was on our roster he would be a restricted FA not unrestricted.  That would give us a little more control and might be an additional factor on keeping him on the roster this year.   
    • Yes the new CBA changed that. Except for a couple veterans you can keep on the PS and pay more. Basically Kelly would be getting a 150k pay cut.
    • Most reports coming out have Hoyer starting over Stidham who isnt ready, as we saw last year Hoyer is done,shot,Curtis Painter level.....who is their go to wr ? Sanu ? M Lee ? N Henry ?  Go to rb ? Michel laid an egg last season with 3.7 yards per carry and now D's will load up even more vs their run game .  The talent simply is not there, they tank for a season and try and reload with Lawrence and bring in a few Free Agents. Brady isnt there to save this outmatched squad. Go to Vegas and bet the under on wins which is 9.5, they wont reach 10 wins, not even close, easy money trust me. I know a few of you here followed my XFL bets and cashed in with me on over under on the games coming in under consistently..cash in on this one as well.
    • Question:   Who says we can’t pay our favorite PS players more than the basic price?    We did last year.    Kelly made roughly $500k, the highest of any player in the NFL.   Did that change?   Is that no longer allowable?   Thanks...
