Potential Sneaky good signings for Ballard

Recommended Posts

With the market being a bit settled after a few days, I could see the following players getting deals much more reasonable and team friendly. These following players Indy could use on their roster in 2019...

 

RB Tevin Coleman

DE/OLB Justin Houston

DT Ndamokung Suh

WR Golden Tate

WR Randall Cobb

S Adrian Phillips

S Clayton Geathers

Don't like Suh, but agree with all the others.

 

I would add a couple

Zach Brown ILB

Rodney Gunter DT/DE

I like Ziggy Ansah for a 1 yr. "show me" deal. For slot CB, Darqueze Dennard may not be a bad option if the price is right, he can play outside too.

I breathed a sigh of relief when we re-signed Desir. CB depth has bit us so many times in the last 15 years.

I wouldn't mind a few of those guys but I'm not holding my breath waiting for it either.

I think CJ Anderson would be a good pickup. Suh or Houston on perhaps 1 yr deals, they are older but can still ball. Tate is still out there out as well.

I'll go even more under the radar and add Darius Philon or Christian Covington.

 

Also, there's speculation the Eagles may release Nelson Agholor. I'd be all over that.

Has Bryce Callahan signed anywhere yet? Pretty good slot corner that should come at a good value and help improve our depth.

For those who keep wanting a slot or nickel corner....   May I introduce you to Kenny Moore?

 

And none of these good slot corners are coming to the Colts as a backup.  They want to start wherever they go.

It’s funny who could miss Moore. The guy is flat out a play maker.

Well...   in their defense...  Moore did play some outside corner...   but that was more due to necessity than desire.

 

His best position is in the slot as a nickel back.

 

A related note:   Baltimore’s slot-nickel corner recently signed for 3/27.   A record for a nickel back.   I’ll bet Kenny Moore popped a bottle of champagne over that.   In a year he’s going to be well paid!

Agreed.

 

And that was one-upped when Justin Coleman was just made the highest paid slot by Detroit at 4 years and $36M

 

So if Kenny Moore excels this year like he did last year, we would be looking at around $9M+ on a multi year deal to retain him.

Thanks...   good info.    I have not heard about the Coleman signing.   Wow!

 

I hope Moore gives us at least a modest home town discount.   I hope he wants to remain with Indy and meets Ballard 

in a spirit of cooperation to stay here.

Don't we already have Nate Hairston as a backup too? I know he had a down year but he was pretty solid as a rookie. Maybe he can rebound?

Ballard is not iveroaying and I am ok with that. A few names I would like to see him explore are:

 

CB Ronald Darby

  S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix 

DL Danny Shelton

DE Frank Clark (Via Trade)

DE Justin Houston

  S Eric Berry

RB CJ Anderson

 

There is still good value to be had.

Ansah and Geathers. Don't need much more. Maybe CJ Anderson he's different back than the 3 starters we have. Sounds like all that cap money is gone next year just resigning what we got.

 Moore played very well on the outside, in the slot, and even got snaps in the playoffs at cover 2 safety. The guy is a baller.

I can understand not over paying, but come on, we have over 100 million to spend. We don't have to have a 5 year contract, but a few 2 year deals wouldn't hurt..

Adrian Phillips would be a nice signing. It would give us a quality starting strong safety that is good on special teams.

Half of the list won't be in the NFL in 3-4 years. That's not what Ballard is after.

I’m watching Adrian Phillips too. He played well last year for the Chargers. He’d be a decent consolation prize for losing out on  Amos, who I thought would be tailor made for the Colts.

Ajayi, Jernigan(sp), Dennard, Houston would seem like bargain pickups if healthy.

I remember the first drive in the Houston game where Moore ended up on Hopkins. He stayed right with him down field and broke up what would of been a TD. He is so versatile.

I'm glad we're going to be hosting Ajayi.  I could see him giving teams a real hard time behind that Colts offensive line.  Good player to lean on while closing out games.  Home run hitter too.  I could see him breaking several big ones as teams sell out on 3rd/4th downs or when that line starts breaking the will of the opposing defense.
