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

    • Sure puts everything in perspective, as far as importance of things! Rigo’s a young, healthy guy and this was thankfully caught early, giving him a better than average chance of beating it.
    • No, he still had time left on his contract with the Colts when he retired. 
    • Thoughts and prayers to Rigoberto and his family.  Wish them all the best, all the strength, all the peace, and patience to get through.   I'm relieved to hear that it seems they caught it early.  Hopeful that he will ultimately be ok and back with the team relatively soon.  
    • Flip flopping the oline is not the answer imo. Keep the other starting four right where they are. The chemistry at least remains intact there. Replace just the LT best you can. If not keep te there or back to help protect. 
    • Beginning to wonder if MJC is Ryan Grigson himself.... He’s not been perfect and I’d like for him to be better and take less projects but compared to what we had with the prior regime, it’s a night and day difference.    so I chose to do some research. This comes from Forbes, Bleacher Report and Walter Football as none of them had complete stats by themselves.    The average career length in the NFL is 3.3 years. So since all the above defined draft success as the percentage of starters from each round starting for their team that chose them, I did the same and looked at data showing the percentages of starters that came from each round for the last 3 years. This includes all 3 phases, O and D, and Special Teams.  Per the above sources: percentages of starts by players taken in each respective rounds combined since 2017.    1st Round- 29.9 percent league wide. 2nd Round- 19.4 percent league wide 3rd Round - 11.6 percent league wide. 4-7- 26 percent combined  Undrafted- 13.1 percent. League wide.     now for Ballard, taking ONLY his picks, not previous regime players that are still on the team. Special teams starters are NOT included in this. Just first string O and D.    1st Round- Hooker,Nelson,Buckner(via trade): 2/3 currently starting, 1 on IR that was a starter but that is likely gone at the end of the year, so I’m counting that as a loss. 66.7 percent.    2nd round: 10 picks: 7/10 have become starters. 70 percent.    3rd round: 3 picks, 2/3 starters, that being Bobby O and Blackmon. 66.7%   4th thru 7 rounds: 5/24 or 20.8 percent(this number would jump a few points if I counted special teams.)   Yes, Ballard is above the league Average in getting starting results in rounds 1-3 but below average 4-7....
