Some cool stuff here.    

Brad wells is a child with rocks for brains. How does re-signing Geathers effect hooker? They play different positions. I swear I have no clue how he has a job. Half the people on this forum are more

Doesn’t look like it. Guess Ballard feels what we need get past the divisional round of the playoff is in the draft.

There's a couple linked to us for visits this week and early next....  I posted a couple of those tweets last night and again this morning...  We've got Ajayi coming in early next week and there's another coming in tomorrow, but I'm drawing a blank on who that was.

All I saw was Ajayi

It's looking to me like Ballard is in no hurry to bring in any of the remaining FA's that he might be interested in.  Maybe we resign Gaethers?  Maybe.  It seems quieter now for us compared to last year.  That said he could be waiting on certain players that might be cut soon for cap reasons.  Still a ways to go but I was expecting a little more activity besides retaining our own.

Like to see Clinton-Dix in the mix for the Colts. Hopefully they give him a look.

 

We do still need a starting S to go alongside Hooker. So hopefully they either bring back Geathers on a team friendly deal, or go after someone like a Adrian Phillips or Clinton Dix.

I’m surprised it took New England so long to go after Humphries.   I always viewed him in that Edelman, Walker kind of way...   and not just because of skin color...   

 

I thought the Pats would go after him sooner...  not after the guy has agreed to a deal...  I mean, when have they EVER done that before!

I think ballard will most likely wait until after the draft to see what holes we need to fill before signing anyone else. I am going to guess that Geathers is signed.

Patience.  Just like last year, he didn't sign anyone until the 2nd week of FA.  My guess, 3-4 will sign in the next week.

With all the AB bashing going on, that was pretty cool of him.  

 

Did you see the video of him visiting Carr at his house. They looked liked best buds. It was kind of odd with the bad reputation he has going around.

Hmmm.  Maybe the ego and attitude concerns about him and Bell were connected to that locker room and not them?

Looks like mike Mitchell is done with the colts. He did a great job teaching Wilson.

 

 

This and then not re-signing Geathers (so far) only strengthens my belief that they will be drafting a safety. Probably early too. It’s a good class.

I have a gut feeling Geathers will be Re-signed today. They were just letting Desir have the spotlight yesterday. But we do need a safety. There are plenty out there. I could see us picking up a FA and drafting one.

Why. Yes he has been injured but didn’t he play in 14 games last year plus two playoff games. 

 

I heard a radio guy say if yoy  the uniforms off of Geathers and Collins you would have a hard time telling them apart. That was his opinion anyway.

We need an impact player and Geathers isn’t it. He hasn’t done anything of significance his entire career here. Time to cut ties

He played well but he was just a rental for us due to injuries.   No reason to bring him back on.

Third on the team in tackles is not having an impact?

No. Collecting a bunch of tackles isn’t impacting. Someone else can step in and do the same. 

 

The next person after him was kenny moore. You want your slot corner be third on the team in tackles? You just don't get the importance of Geathers on this defense. You care more about his injuries then his play

    • I liked it a lot, but I found that baseball purists did not like it as much. Even though the Yankees beat the Mets most of the time, most of the games were competitive and the games the Mets won brought good memories.   I recall where I was when this happened. (I get chills. ) I remember walking in the street and I jumped up when utility man Matt Franco got this walk-off hit off Mariano Rivera at the bottom of the 9th. My eyes glanced at a man sitting in his car, who screamed at the same time. It was rare for Mariano to blow a save. This was around 1996 or so.     Listen to that great call. I love it!   That was one of my favorite Mets teams.   
    • Again in terms of projecting values out, this all depends on how we see Braden Smith valued.    I said to go high at $10M a year based on a few things:   1) If you asked many people is Braden Smith a top-5 RT, most would say no. I think he is. either way a top-5 RT slots in at an AAV of $10M a year right now   2) Most of the guys getting top $ at RT got that top dollar by getting it on the open market. Lane Johnson is the exception. However, the Eagles gave him that extension when there was originally talk about him moving to LT as Peters aged. The guys that signed extensions with their current teams got $10M a year or less.    3) This is to say I think Smith can totally get over $10M a year if he hits the open market and wants to test the waters. However, if the Colts looked to extend him now and give him financial security as a 2nd round pick that has not made much money yet in his career and did so in a year where the cap came down and a lot of players are going to take less money if they are not a superstar, I think him signing a deal averaging $10M a year would be a win for him and the Colts     At the end of the day, my entire point of this thread was to simply point out that us investing $50-$55M in a starting OL out of a future cap of around $200-$220M is very, very doable and arguably reasonable in terms of how Ballard likes to build through the trenches. Having an OL tie up 25% of your cap and a combined OL and QB tie up less than 40% of your cap for the next 3-4 years is actually very, very reasonable.   I have admittedly been a big advocate for Trent Williams. He is aging, sure. But he has shown no signs at all of slipping. And he even has one less year of wear and tear on his body from sitting out a year with the whole tumor fiasco where Washington really didn't do right by him with their medical team. So would I throw a 4 year deal at him with big money where the only guaranteed money was paid out in the first two years and then there were salaries on the back end that can easily allow a cut if the performance dips? Absolutely.   Either way, this was really to just get our base chatting about all this since the canned narrative everyone is spitting out is the same narrative that is being fed to fans from the media that says "they'll have too much tied up in their OL with the extension for Kelly and the upcoming extensions for Nelson and Smith." I'm just saying if we managed things the way guys like Mike Bluem have been, then we can comfortably invest in a top FA  LT if we wanted to without it being overly painful downstream. 
    • I personally do not like the idea of trying to come up with a stop gap or developmental guy at the most inportant position on the OL. Solidify that position with a dependable proven LT whether it  Villanueva or someone else. Same with DE. Find a proven pass rusher and pay him. Use the draft or WR, CB and solidifying other positions including OL. I think we are very close to being in  SB contention and 3 to 4 good players may push us over the top. We can't foolishly throw money at these guys but if we are prudent we have plenty of money to carry us.
    • Yeah, my little voice partly thinks the same (perhaps contract year type of performance). I just hate saying it out loud, as he was considered very very raw when drafted. He was used all over the place at USC, and relied way too much on his natural gifts instead of technique. Maybe he was a bit lazy, but it's also possible he was just raw, wasn't able to focus, and things are just now clicking. Or maybe he was lazy a bit, and finally grew up or matured enough to commit to his craft.    He's an interesting guy to follow. I could see it falling either way. I remember his recruiting out of HS (think he was out of Mainland) Thought for sure he'd end up at FSU, UF, or Auburn. My FSU and Auburn buds thought he was a lock lol. One of my FSU buds swore USC bought him a car lol. I was hoping ND would offer, but rumor was, he didn't have close to the grades needed.    
    • Hmmm I watched the show on  prime (all episodes) And Although I haven't seen many of the games from last year I found him to be pretty damn good and a very nice guy. I mean I wasn't a huge fan before but I think we got a winner at Qb and im looking forward to watching all year. Watch the show on prime  its worth the watch
