Colts sign Devin Funchess (Merge)

Recommended Posts

10 Million for one year in this FA period isn't bad at all. A WR will still be taken in the first 3 rounds.

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.

Who says he will be WR2? And he can be cut if he under performs with little to no cap hit

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.

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.  

We have 102 million in cap space and we signed a one year deal. Why do people think overpaying is a big deal? We aren’t going after big names.

Oh. Uh. Well then. Not the direction I was thinking, but there it is. 

 

Me neither. We officially give up the right to laugh at JAC for the deal they gave Moncrief last year.

IMO, Ballard wanted a 1 yr. rental while they see what they have in Cain. He has been clear that he wants to draft his talent. Personally, I'd have rather brought Inman back, but he likely wanted a 3 year deal.

Read somewhere it's 9.5 base salary with a max of 13 if he gets 1000 and 8 TDs.

 

So that's a little nicer

One of my favorite things in life is to go out to stores on Christmas Eve and watch people stress over choosing gifts last-minute.  I casually walk around (usually smiling) and take in all the holidays have to offer like parents yelling at their kids, couples arguing, etc.  it really helps me put things in perspective.

 

  I have another FAVORITE thing.... coming here around free agency and draft time.

   It reminds me that i'm not nearly as "crazy" as i thought.

6'4" ran a 4.7 40...former 2nd round pick. 

 

I'm okay with this. Big body and he's an upgrade over who is currently on the roster

Pretty much this. Our #2 receiver for a lot of last year was.. Ryan Grant? Chester Rogers? Inman helped out and we can still bring him back if we want.

thats a pretty steep incentive if he has to get both.  that would be approaching a top 10 WR in the league.  if he hits those numbers you could probably add another 5 million and no one would complain

 

ty had 1270 yds and 6 tds last year

I guess this means Dontrelle Inman won’t be resigned?  Is Funchess supposed to be our #2 or will Ballard try to draft our #2 WR?   Funny how a signing leads to many more questions.

He ran 4.37 at his pro day. Not sure what happened at the combine.

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.

 

Golden Tate does not suck,  which is why he's going to sign a good contract.    

 

It's not like every player in the NFL just sucks once they turn 30.    He hasn't had a bad year since.... when?      Why you think he sucks is a mystery....

No.    Don't connect the dots.     Inman still has a decent chance of re-signing.

 

That decision has not been made yet.

 

Try this.....

 

Hilton, Funchess,  Draft Pick, Inman,  Cain.       That's five.    If Ballard wants six, he has room for one more.

 

It's not over for Inman --- yet.

So you can't give a 3rd and a 5th and $17 m to perhaps one of the top 5 greatest wrs of all time, but you can give $13 M to a guy who has consistently underachieved his entire career.

 

Not a fan of this....at all.  He may do well for the Colts, but you could have had AB instead of the walking statue.

No,  but the one year is the key for us.

 

Beats being way overpaid on a 5-year deal.

 

Top guys aren't signing a 1-year deal.

Exactly so in the scenario that he does make 13 million, literally nobody will be complaining cause he'll have had perhaps a pro bowl calibre season

People on here always say they want good route runners who can get separation. 

 

Funchess is the worst at that or close to it. And he has drop issues.

 

Terrible player.

 

We have to pray that Cain is grabbing that spot opposite TY. He has speed, separation, route running, ball skills... really everything that Funchess doesn’t. Cain hasn’t proven it in the NFL, but based on reports from last year he likely will. And he must now with this awful signing.

I wanted to get your take on this, NCF.

 

Hypothetically, if Funchess performs well this year with Luck, he would be in for a big payday, wouldn't he? And Ballard isn't known for giving out big paydays.

 

Is this essentially just a 1-year deal? Especially if Funchess performs really well?

Collins got SIX years.      Funchess signs for One.

 

Why is this hard to figure out?

 

And you literally wrote F Ballard.     Really?     Seriously? 

 

Why are you doing this to yourself?

I love one year deals like this though honestly, regardless of how I feel about Funchess. When you have the cap space like we do, why not? If he sucks, we don't have to re-sign him. If he's not great but serviceable, we can hopefully get him cheaper. If he's solid with us and turns it around, then awesome.

It's a pretty win/win situation, or at least there's not much to lose from it.

He is a diva for sure.  But he has always been known as a great WR and will be one of the tp wr's of all time.  Well worth the risk considering the cap space we have.

I hope Funchess tears it up and Cain shows enough that we let Funchess go and it turns into a 3rd rd pick next year.

I guess it depends on a variety of things...     Just how good is the 1-year year?

 

What are our other options a year from now?      Who are the FA WR's available then?

 

Who are the draft pick WR's we take in 19 and again in 20?    

 

Lots of moving pieces....   I'm sorry I can't give you a good answer for another 13-14 months....

 

To be clear.....   I'm not a fan of Funchess.    But I can live comfortably with this because it's only a 1-year deal.

    • That sounds like what I say about Mets acquisitions. High-priced free agents from other teams often disappoint. That is why I prefer going with young, home-grown players. They seem to be more hungry and play better. It seems like when star players move on to other teams, they disappoint. I think Harper and Machado have not performed as well as was expected for $30 million+/year. But Mike Trout is still doing well with the Angels after signing that big contract.   I wonder what @Jay Kirk is thinking. He loves his Cardinals and is usually optimistic. This must be difficult for him to watch.
    • Is there a video of this we can watch? I really want something with Ebron on it but  going to wait and see if he stays here. I think I am going to get something with Moore’s number on it like a sweatshirt
    • By your son a neck beard hat with a 12 on it. he won't grow out of that as fast...
    • I didn't see a topic for this. If there is one, please feel free to merge.   On Tuesday, the NFL Network had their AFC South day, which aside from Darius Leonard being featured on Total Access, included the 30 minute season reviews for all 4 AFC South teams.   I've watched a couple times already and it's got me stoked for the next season. This episode really seemed to highlight Ebron and I can't say enough about how much love he shows for this team. My son has outgrown his size 2T Hilton jersey, and I think Ebron might be the next one I buy for him. Either that or Leonard, who is understandably featured a lot in this episode as well.   Last year was a hell of a thrill ride. I think, partially, because the expectations vs the reality was so different in a positive way.  This year should be just as thrilling, but only if we can keep the enthusiasm with the higher expectations. I, for one, am PUMPED!   Go Colts!
    • MVP hit HR #20 on the season as well. Glad to see Yu finally get a win at Wrigley. Brewers and Cards both won so it was much needed. 52-44 now on the season. We are still 2.5 ahead of the Brewers and 3 ahead of the Cards in the NL Central going into July 18th. I will take it. Cubs are off tomorrow.
