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

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.

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.

 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.

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

 

 

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.

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.

    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.  
    • Not saying we're going to be horrible vs the run, just saying we have a lot of new pieces. I'm honestly not sure Paye will even be in on early run downs at this point. Could be Lewis and AQM, or Lewis and Rochell. We all know Buckner is a monster, but beyond that, just not sure. Grover is good, but not great. I'd love to see him continue to develop. He's only in on early downs most sets though.   But yes, if we fail in that area, our D could be scary bad. I'm just hoping Blackmon learns to cover deep, RYS is healthy and returns to 2H 2019 form, Rhodes has a few more years left, and Kenny stays healthy. I expect Willis will be his solid self. I expect a shaky start to the season though.
