FA Agency Day 2 and beyond.

Recommended Posts

Remember, the CBA expires after 2020.  There will be a lockout, and nobody knows what new items will be in place after the 2 sides come to an agreement.

those are two decent deals the raiders just signed. 

if crowell can keep his head on straight, he could have a very good year.

it's a low dollar, low term, low risk, dice roll. 

if he works out, it's brilliant, if it doesn't, nobody will remember.

We would have to give up so many draft picks to get him.

Most likely but probably not on the same scale as the Mack trade.  There were other picks exchanged besides the two 1sts. to the Raiders.  Bears received a 2nd. back from the Raiders but gave up a 3rd.   It might just take two 1sts.  Who knows.   I can see a scenario where the Cowboys don't trade him during this draft thinking they can sign him.  Jones doesn't budge because he knows he still needs to sign Zak and Zeke.  The "impasse" stays in place and he refuses to report for workouts etc.  The drama and rhetoric builds and Jones wants no part of it.  He decides to trade him before the season starts.  This years Colts draft looks like another success so Ballard feels confident in trading for him.  Anyway it's just a scenario.  The Cowboys would be crazy not to get him signed.  But if he goes on the block I'm sure we will be one of the their target teams.

I don’t know about anyone else but building your team around a RB is dumb.

I don’t know if this means anything. But could it mean the colts will get jay ajayi.

Reading twitter comments the thought is Ajayi won’t be back with the eagles after that trade.

I wonder if the colts would wait to sign him until after the draft. Is there a running back that will compliment Mack in the third round or so that will give us more then Wilkins. Ajayi is defintly done in Phili with his IG story.

After the trade I wonder if Matt Miller will have the Colts as Josh Jacobs new landing spot.

If we are going to draft another back he has to be better then Wilkins. Other wise it’s a waste. If we draft a RB it will probably be in the third round. Will we get a guy that can start and compliment Mack.

This is taking a weird turn. You can see both sides. If the surgery does not go well he could lose millions. The cowboys don’t want to give him a new deal until they know the surgery was a success.

Just on the offensive side of the ball alone...   we have far more pressing needs than RB in the 3rd round.

 

WR,  OL,  perhaps TE....   and also, eventually,  RB.

 

I think if we draft a RB,  it'll be in R's 4, 5, or 6.

 

Typically,  if you draft a back in the 3rd round,  you're looking for him to start.   And that's not what we want.    Mack is our starter.    We want to strengthen our depth.    That comes on Day 3.

Well then we might as not even draft a RB. We drafted one in the fifth round that’s already on the roster.

Maybe.   That's entirely possible.   A lot depends on how things shake out.   Can Ballard collect a few more picks along the way?    Hard to tell.    

 

Since we've not drafted this low under Ballard before,  it's hard to predict what he'll do.    I think most of us believe he could do most anything and it might not surprise.

 

Fascinating draft season.....

on a normal labrum surgery, it's a 3-4 month recovery per Dr. Google. 

i wouldn't sign him unless i know it went well. wonder how serious they doctors say it is.

I can’t wait for the draft. The draft is all new to me. Normally I am not  inteersted or care. I just care about the games starting in Sept. Ballard and this team this year have me really intrigued by it. I don’t watch college football so I don’t know who any of these guys are.

Blueshoe and Stitches are extremely intelligent regarding the draft, soak their knowledge in like a sponge. You can also PM me with any draft related questions regarding the Colts, and I'll do my best to answer. The draft should be a lot of fun this year with Ballard at the helm.

Agree on the type of RB the Colts look for in the draft. It will be Day 3 IMO and complimentary to Mack and the gang. 3rd down pounder; can block; can catch. Lots of guys like that available from the 4th round on.

I'm exactly the same this year! Its hard, living on the other side of the world, to get any coverage. But im reading everything I can. 

My boss even commented that I'm becoming addicted to the Colts. I told him its too late, became addicted years ago!

Luckily he doesn't mind me spending all day at work on here!

    • I'm guessing you didn't watch the game live? lol.
    • I gotta agree. Those trades smell of desperation...and unwashed jocks.
    • I've been optimistic about JB since we lost our starter (Rest his soul) . But every Sunday (because hes unproven) I get nervous about JB and lose faith. So far, hes done a very good job. Doing just enough to keep us in games.    Playing vs Houston and seeing how well he did (late game the whole team went prevent so not too worried there), gave me a lot more confidence. But it's hard to trust a guy who has to earn it in front of literally everyone in the league.    I'll tell you what I do like however.  Because Brissett doesn't have this mega obvious talent as a QB, they arent throwing the ball constantly. It's like because you have a franchise QB, you feel this need to throw the ball, even in situations you shouldn't. You rarely establish a ground game, and when you do, it is only in compliment to the pass.    The Colts keep winning in different ways. They are multifaceted. So they CAN and DO play to their opponents weaknesses, and and have the ability to play almost any kind of offense (from what we have seen so far)..   with a top 5-7 QB, you just pass more. Vs KC, we would have passed more with any of the top 5 QBs in the NFL. But we didnt. Because we didnt have a top 5 QB to blur our vision from their weakness and our strength.. I think Frank experiencing this is great for our future. If JB becomes a top 10 QB (in most stats), this could mean heaps in the sense of valuing this team as a whole. Instead of everything being built around the QB, the team is built around the lines and go out.     Something I was thinking about earlier with Brady. It is my opinion that he is a system QB. He is the best system QB of all time. But hes in the perfect system for his strengths to flourish. Sometimes it's just better to have the right system QB. Maybe JB is the perfect system QB for our system. Just a thought guys.    We need to remember our addiction to winning as fans indeed blurs our own vision from seeing the true reality of things. 
    • Just saying the Jets aren't out of there minds suggesting it.
    • Seriously? That's the first I heard of that.   If that's true, that is very impressive for a backup QB to display that kind of leadership.   Never under estimate the importance of proper leadership. Sometimes I wondered if Andrew was assertive enough and this little nugget is an example of that. Jacoby on the other hand must be very assertive to have the guts to call a meeting like that. That meeting turned our season around and that's quite an impact from a backup QB that barely took any snaps last year. That's extremely impressive to me.   This team is in a great, great place if he can fill the void left by Andrew and his retirement. Its looking good so far.
