I would think bell is more likely now. I guess money has to be spent somewhere. Was hoping for one of the better defensive players but imagine bell running behind our oline. Would take our offense to the next level imo. 

A greatdefense is a great offense that can control the ball and with a great running game we can do that.

I wonder what Mack will be thinking if we signed Bell. I wil say if the colts were able to land him I will give him credit for wanting to plY with a winner. Put Bell and Mack in the backfield at the same time teams will be so confused.

I love that everyone is just now seeing that Lev Bell would be an excellent addition to the team? Like...what? It's like everyone was under some Ballard-ism brainwash lol.

Here's an interesting one that might affect the Colts and Brissett:

 

 

One less QB on the market. Miami still looking for a QB.

I hope everyone is having a nice morning.  Because I am.  Bell visiting Indianapolis today according to Dan Orlosky.   How sweet is that.  I'm really starting to get a good feeling about this.

Lol Im not sure where you got the idea that people thought Bell wouldn't be a great addition. The only argument I've ever seen is paying a large amount for a RB

I'd imagine Mack would be dealt before, or during, the draft. They aren't gonna pay Lev all of that $ to split time with Marlon Mack...no.

How much would you give him? Also, where did Orlovsky say that? Radio? TV? I can't find anything on twitter.

Where are all the people that said "Ballard won't even give Lev Bell the time of day, hurrumph hurrumph hurrumph...I know everything about the Colts!" Haha come on out, we know you're out there, cuz there were like 108 of you. Why wouldn't they look at Lev? Dude is arguably the most dynamic weapon in football, and he's  AVAILABLE! We have the $ to frontload the crap out of his deal...plus, all of the defensive players are signing for twice what they're worth, may as well pay Lev. 

 

Still don't want Bell not unless he's cheap.  Like 7 mil per or less.

 

I think he's one of the most overrated players in football.  Steelers RB's always do well, they replaced him with James Conner and didn't miss a beat.

 

Plus we arn't really that bad at RB.  We could maybe use a little more depth there, but that's it.  We really don't need Bell.

Idk, because all I've heard for months is that he would destroy the locker room, and that he wouldn't be worth whatever contract he'd get. In reality, he's potentially the most lethal weapon in football, and they obviously need more weapons...so, why not add one of the best, one of the more dynamic? How often is it that a player like this is just open? And, the Colts have the most $ available? Sounds like the perfect storm to me.

No way would we do that.  That would be a dumb move. 

Is Bell really visiting Indy today?

It would be dumb to sign Lev freaking Bell to a huge deal and let him split time with a lesser talent like Mack. IF he gets signed, Mack is a goner. Bell's deal will be for the long term, and by the time it's done Mack will be off of his rookie deal, it then becomes get something for him while the value is high...and his value will almost certainly depreciate sitting behind Lev.

The other side of it:  this is a business and you're trying to generate excitement and sell tickets, so it's something you have to consider.  Irsay is still the owner of the team. 

 

That said, I highly doubt Bell is a Colt.

I am not sure how the locker room would feel about trading Mack because we got. Elk. Mack has worked his butt off. I would think that could hurt the locker room. I would actually feel really bad for Mack. I don’t think the colts would trade him.

No I was responding to the person that said we would trade Mack by the draft if we get Bell.

Za'Darius Smith going to the Packers might be a good thing for us in the draft. 

 

They are desperate for an EDGE rushers, so hopefully Smith satisfies they enough to pass on a player like Brian Burns.

I don't wanna hear it, because I've had probably 100 posts of people being condescending and arrogant, so sorry if I wanna make a few posts that are mostly informative. I understand the odds of Lev coming here are slim, but I also knew that there was a chance.

Was thinking the same thing. Was Flores on the Pats Staff when Brissett was there?

I wouldn't be surprised if Bell really wants to play for us. Not that I think he'd take significantly less or anything, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's holding out hope that we come close to what he's looking for. At the very least it's hard for me to believe that the Jets don't already have a really good offer on the table for him.

I don't know.  This market is very robust.  I can guess at 4yrs.@ 17m plus incentives with 50% guaranteed.  He would certainly give us the biggest bang for the buck.  Excitement, playmaking ability, ticket sales, you name it.   What I do know is I'm feeling better about this than I did before I went to bed last night.

If they add Funchess, Lev, and draft a WR fairly early, this offense is gonna be explosive! Haha I love this time of year, and it's that much more fun when you have the most $!

I will say I don’t think Bell is a cancer like Brown. His was strictly a money issue.

I really REALLY REALLY hope we don't even approach this type of pay for Bell. This would be really bad management of our resources.

I don't agree. Mack us still cheap and the more RB's the better to stay fresh for the playoffs.
