Much like Hunt and now Desir......it shows that if you produce on the 1 or 2 year contracts the front office will reward you.   Sets a good precedent for Ebron and Funchess (if he balls out

3-years, 90 millions

Man , you really don't like Desir for some reason lol 

 

I don't dislike him at all. He's a decent corner, I just think he's a little overrated by Colts fans (based on my opinion of him and his role). He's getting a three year deal, I'm just anxious to see the numbers.

 

By the way, I had Desir on my pre-draft list way back when. Nothing against him at all, and for him to go from journeyman fringe roster player to getting a three year deal after a solid season with us is good to see. I just don't think he's the key to locking down DHop like some do.

If Steven Nelson is 3 years and $25.5M and he played worse than Desir did, i have to believe it is more than that.

 

And if Bradley Roby got $10M for 1 year, I have to believe it is going to approach that annually.

 

I will guess and say it's around 3 years and $28.5M

I could see the numbers being a little eye popping at first but meh. It's not like we're gonna be making any huge re-signings within the next few years, or at least not enough for whatever Desir gets to matter much.

I like Desir, I don't think he's elite but I'd hope no Colts fans have that idea of him. But I do think he's a solid, lengthy guy to have in the CB group.

Desir shut down Deandre Hopkins (top 5 WR in league) twice and Amari Cooper (no slouch either) when asked. Not sure how that's overrated. He was pretty decent for the Colts the year before as well. 

 

I think the signing is great, not only because I think Desir is better than other FA's available (esp in zone) but it shows the rest of the team that if you do well for the team, you get rewarded.

Have to agree with you. I'm not a ran of the 3 year deal part honestly dude is already like 28. If his play falls off I hope we can dump him without hurting the team too much

    • But here's the thing to me.  If we do have a poor season, we will be in a better draft position next year. I feel we are closer than some think.  We went toe to toe with everyone.  KC is the elephant in the room, but every team has that challenge, trying to compete with KC.   There was not one team we played that we weren't competitive with.  We should be playing KC this week.   I hope they run it again.
    • So these are the teams that Draft ahead of us.. and i was wondering which teams do you think will take a QB in round one? now down below i have a list of possible teams that could take a QB    1, Jacksonville - QB     2. NY Jets -     3.  Miami -   4. Atlanta - QB   5. Cincinnati -   6. Philadelphia -   7. Detroit - QB   8. Carolina - QB   9. Denver - QB   10. Dallas -   11. NY Giants -   12. San Francisco - QB   13. LA Chargers -   14. Minnesota -   15. New England - QB   16. Arizona -   17. Las Vegas -   18. Miami -   19. Washington - QB   20. Chicago - QB   21. Indianapolis -  
    • I respect this post but since his injury he seems not to be the same. I wouldn't mind trading for Stafford if Rivers doesn't come back.
    • You could be right about that, but would Rivers get to know the people next season?   I honestly dont believe that stadiums will be full of people, and that much will change with the covid-19 the next year. I hope it will, but, things are going way to slow to even think about full capacity at any NFL or sports arena in 2021   I just watched the presser again with Ballard. And again, he praised Rivers a lot, but he really also stressed that the Colts would be exploring all options going forward. I also noticed that when Ballard was asked about other young QB´s in the league and their mobility, he recognized that the NFL was changing which the colts needed to focus upon, but that a QB needed to do good in the pocket as well.    I know a lot of things will change this offseason, and with all the new coaching hires, a lot of rumored QB´s going to the colts, won't be available. So the scenarios about a Wentz, Darnold or Stafford going to the colts, that's not going tio happen.   I think that even though Rivers want to come back, Im more into the colts going for Kaepernick, Cam or Fitzpatrick, due to their age, rather than a 40 year old superbowl virgin in Rivers.
