FA Agency Day 2 and beyond.

Recommended Posts

According to multiple reports, the two sides did not come to an agreement on a deal. Those reports leave the door open for something to happen down the road, although it’s not clear when the Colts and Ajayi might revisit that possibility.

That doesn’t surprise me because he has already visited other teams or has a plan to visit.

Probably the same thing with Aaron Lynch. He has had several team visits.

Dang he’d look real good in a Colts uni.  I hope it happens at some point.  If healthy, he would bring an edge to the offense.  Just imagine him running hard behind big Q and the rest of our offensive line.  He and Mack would make a nice combo.  I called for this back in September.

I would guess he won’t be ready before the season starts. Maybe longer. It says he  hurt his knee in week 5 so that would be October.

its a 9-12 month recovery so hes either back by TC or hes on the PUP list to start the season

I wonder if Ajai would be happy as a No.2 back here.  I have to think he views himself as a lead back.   He might not be in a hurry.  Players get hurt in camp and preseason.  And if he is not going to be ready by then he might just wait it out to see what happens.

I think this will probably be the case.  He may not get the opportunity to be a number one anymore. I mean I think I read he has had three surgeries in his knees. I don’t think the one year deal will be a problem. I don’t think any team will give him more.

That sums up what we suspected all along.  They just got to expensive.

All I can say is, Ballard better have another good draft to justify not spending in FA. I hope he realizes the increased difficulty of picking later in each round. It'll be his first time picking late.

we picked 15th his first year, but I get your point. Honestly there are a lot of big contracts coming up. Andrew's contract is coming up in a few years, hilton's contract as well, AC's next year, Kenny needs to be extended, and of course the massive contracts its gonna take to re-sign Nelson and Leonard down the road. I just think Ballard knows there are a lot of players on the team currently that he will need to re-sign with big contracts and doesn't want to be tied down by bad contracts

The news about the team still wanting to bring back Inman is likely going to be the BEST news of the day...   for me at least. 

 

Hope we we can make it happen.

I love ballard. Some pretty cool stuff from him. If we get Inman back we will have a pretty strong receiving core. Hilton, funchess, and Inman with the young kids fighting it out will be fun to watch.

I think with Hookers and Geathers injury history we have to take a safety with one of our rd 2 picks. We need one that can start if needed.

He's pretty clear about what's important to him.

Love that signing. Imagine it will be short term. Not a typical DE, but he'll bring plenty of pressure.

Also love that there were no whispers. Shows that CB is going about his business quietly.

He really doesnt beat around the bush does he? Even mentions there getting a dominant right end, just a couple of hours before Houston signed. 

Can it be September already!?!

Any updates on Zach Brown (MLB)? Been pretty quiet for one of the top FAs left.

Would love to get MLB upgrade via FA. He's about the only guy left on the board I'd happily take. 

Last I saw, Raiders, Bills, and Miami were showing interest. Indy is more attractive than those 3 lol.

Ray started 8 games in 2016 for 8 sacks.
Started 7 games in 2017 for 1 sack but was also suffering a wrist injury. 
Two surgeries later...

Wow 8 sacks in 8 games. Sounds like he could have potential.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
