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.

I wonder what people were saying about Ebron when Ballard signed him? I’m sure overrated and can’t catch the ball..

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.

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.

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.

 

Are you serious?

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.

i was actually pretty stoked when we signed ebron, i did think he would do something here

 

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

    • I'm on the record that I think it would be shortsighted to spend any premium asset for non-long-term QB while there is a question about our QB position. We might need those picks to trade up in the draft for a QB Ballard and Reich love. Until we are certain one way or another in our long-term QB position we should not be trading those picks for players. And even then we should still be prudent in how we spend our picks. Multiple round 1 and round 2 picks for strong safety/slot CB is not my idea of prudent use of our picks. 
    • I'll be attending, hoping to get there around 10
    • Chad Kelly by far.   He's one brush away from cleaning toilets in prison for the next few years of his life ala Ryan Leaf.
    • I have no doubt Elway is a better QB talent evaluator than people here...but vs. his peers? Osweiler, Siemian, Lynch...giving $25M gtd to Case Keenum...those moves collectively would seem to suggest his evaluation is not better than most...and maybe just bad (relatively speaking). Granted none of those are top 5 picks...but he did trade up in the 1st round to get Lynch and Osweiler was a 2nd round pick. I like Lock more than that anyone in that group...so we will see how that turns out.   As for Manning...there were several teams were interested...like nearly 1/3 of the league. At least 9 teams reached out to him (DEN, AZ, SEA, TEN, WAS, MIA, NYJ, PHI, SF)...and Manning narrowed it down and heard in-person pitches from 4 of them (DEN, AZ, MIA and TEN)...and ultimately chose DEN over AZ and TEN. It was a whole thing that went on for a few weeks.   Irsay did release Manning from his contract...but (IMO) either Manning (or likely both he and Irsay) engineered it as a possibility when Manning signed his contract the year before...which contained a poison pill that ultimately saw him get released.
