Has anyone heard anything at all about this? I think it was supposed to happen yesterday, but I haven't seen a word about it.

Just that it went well but there was no deal signed. I believe he had a few teams to visit.

They mentioned that they are going to stay in contract but are in no hurry. Said the meeting seemed to go well though. Kevin Bowen and Chappell said something.

I believe we have a solid chance of signing Ajayi as he has connections with Reich from the Eagles. He'd also fit a specific role as a power back for us, which is a positive for us and him. As always, it'll come down to money as the deciding factor though.

I think the quote was "No deal signed today, but the door has been left open for a possible re-conncection down the road".

 

Im not too concerned about this, i personally would like to see Wilkins get a lot more looks this year, im hoping Ajayi would be just a short yardage, goal line back. Thats just my opinion though

Most likely they'll monitor his injury and rehab and potentially discuss terms again when he's further down the line in his recovery.

Ajayi will probably not be that expensive and if that's the case I'm all for it. We have Hines to take the pass catching duties.  With that o-line, we should be able to bully and lean on teams in the run game... really force the ball down the defense's throat when possible.  Having 2 good backs keeps them both fresh and hungry.  I believe this is the type of situation where Ajayi would thrive.

Hey ,if he get's healthy and runs like he use to, and the price is right, then no need to use a draft choice in this year's draft.

Interesting. So he either stays with the eagles or comes here. It’s really a good spot for him as there is familiarity with both teams.

I wonder if Jay is giving the Eagles the chance to match anything the Colts offer.  

 

I don't have a problem with that but it looks like we will have to outbid the Eagles for his services.

after seeing the movement on post combine big boards, i'm in the camp of drafting a RB late. 

 

there's going to be some interesting names left in the 6th and 7th rounds. 

i'd take Benny Snell all day long in that space. Good big bodied back who had a lot of success against some very tough run defenses.

I wouldn’t expect a contract from Ballard until he is able to pass a physical first.

you can actually sign before the contract, and void based on physical. that's how we ended up with Grant (Balt signed him to a 4y 30M contract, then he failed physical, and signed a 1yr here).

agreed on that

 

based on Rosenhaus' comments though, it looks like Ajayi most likely cannot pass a physical right now

 

If he is not going to be ready until just before the season kicks off, then a team would need to sign him in good faith and let him rehab and get ready for the year.

 

sounds like that is not exactly what we are hoping to do and that the lines of communication are open in the event he doesn't find something else out there.

 

if he is still talking to the Eagles, chances are that is where he ultimately ends up.

 

but the draft can change that and so can some training camp/preseason injuries obviously.

i didn't know he was so late in the rehab process. unless Ballard sees him as a multiyear sign, isd pass. personally i'd pass regardless.

A little puzzled why not many takers in the CJ Anderson band wagon in the league. Is there an issue with him? If so I haven't heard anything out there negative. Anybody with any scoops on that?

I think the only concern is his injury history. When he's healthy it would be a no brainer but, he has had way too many injuries as a running back for his age.

If he is staying close to the Eagles that is the team that makes the most sense.  They need a RB and he's the logical guy if he's healthy.  He's just doing his due diligence with the Colts like he should.

The eagles just traded for a RB. Ajayi pretty much confirmed on IG he was not resigning with the eagles. Have no idea if this means he will sign with the colts or if the colts will wait until after the draft.

Might help to drop his price. Especially if it was just us and the Eagles after him.

 

I am sure after all his injuries his price is going to be pretty low. The rest of this week could be interesting.

Ajayi! Ajayi! Ajayi!  

 

I can't help it.  I think he'll be great in Indy.  I know he'll look awesome in the best uniform known to the NFL.  I want a mulligan on Frank Gore.  Give me some Ajayi.  Let's try it.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Eagles decided to move on from Ajai because they don't think he will return to his old self or maybe his recovery will take longer than they at first thought.  They were the favorite.  I think their evaluation caused them to move on.

If your interested to see how his rehab is going he has it documented on his Instagram. Looks like he is working hard.

IDK, if the coaches think he'll fully recover, and make an impact, i'm all for it.

I'd really prefer picking up a guy in the draft if RB is really a need. 

Like I said earlier, there's some very productive guys that will be available 4 and 5th rounds. Cheaper, and injury free.

If we get one in the draft would we get one any better then Wilkins in the third round or later.  I am not for using one of our first three on a RB. If we are going to use a draft pick we better be confident they are better then Wilkins.Other wise it’s a wasted pick. WE already drafted a fifth rd pick last year.

What a Steal by the Eagles!

Howard for a 2020 6th rounder.

 

These teams that are in 'win now' mode seem to always take advantage of other lesser organizations. 

Howard would have been a good power compliment to Mack.

 

The odds just got better we will get Ajai.

it's a bit of head scratcher. he's entering the last year of his contract, and slumped a bit last year, but he still had almost 1000 yards and is young. not sure if he's already lost a step, or has a durability problem. might be they just figured out they don't want to pay a new contract and wanted to get anything they could now.

I don’t understand how they got him that cheap.  I don’t think ballard is looking for another number one back. I think he wants someone just to limit Mack’s carries to keep him fresh.

Yeah, it's like some of the lower teams say "sure I'll give you a quality player for practically nothing since your trying to win" . "maybe you guys return the favor in 5 or 10 years when it's our turn". Lol

 

But the Bears had a good year last year....which makes this surprising.

Depends on the physical condition of Jay, If he is healthy , and the price is right, then by all means yes, for short term, If there is a question about him staying off the injured reserve, then 

hell no.

Well, I guess we won't hear much more about this until after the draft.  With the Eagles out of the running, there's nobody else after Ajayi that bad.  Between the knee and the upcoming draft there's no point in making an unnecessary move in regards to RB.

I'm sure he's in no rush signing with a team since he's still recovering from an ACL injury. I don't see him participating in training camp and him being ready for preseason is up in the air at this point. But, he knows the offense so whenever he is ready to step on the field I believe he will be productive. He won't be asked to do too much which is great imo.

    • Was just listening to Dan Dakich.  He brought up the idea that I did earlier.  That this entire ankle/leg issue could be a made up thing just as a way out.   Remember, he was fine after the season ended.  Zero mention of a leg issue . Then he went to Europe, got married, and came back with a 'calf'.    Huh?   Did he stumble and hurt himself walking to the altar?   And everyone who has seen him train this year?  Says he looks fine.  No sign of an injury.  Doctors couldn't figure it out.  Why?  No injury?     Went through those drills last week, looked great, and then he says that he thought it might be his last time on the Lucas Oil stadium field.   Makes zero sense.  Other than this has been in his mind for quite a while.
    • It's not nearly as bad, or as big of deal as you are making it out to be. Even in the stories I have seen and read today it's not getting that much attention.  The Colts not going after the money they could get back is what's getting the press.    The booing won't have any effect on FAs; If anything, the absence of an elite QB will be a bigger issue when it comes to attracting FAs.        
    • Yeah...I shouldn't have said active. I meant games he has appeared in.   But if you just look at active games...he will have played in more than half...which is still pretty incredible for a guy drafted into the situation he was. 
    • I do agree with Jimmy our owner too. Andrew isn't really being selfish when you remember all the millions of dollars he leaving on the table.   If you're heart's not in the game anymore because your body keeps betraying you, I could see why turning the page to something else seems appealing to Luck. You watch his press conference & can't help but feel for the guy & what he's endured since he first got here in 2012. He raves about Mathis, Wayne, Hilton, Adam V. The guy doesn't have a malicious bone in his body man. He loves INDY & her diehard fans. The guy is genuinely broken up emotionally over this decision man. He didn't reach it lightly at all.    The funny thing about rage & anger is this: It's only a burden to those who carry it & refuse to release it & let it go over time. Fans have a right to be upset just remember that no one was hoodwinked, swindled, or lied to here. The situation was abrupt, unexpected, even awkward perhaps, but I honestly don't think this news was withheld on purpose by anybody inside the Colts organization. Life teaches us to adapt all the time. The only constant is change & our organization will handle this change with professionalism, dignity, & a sense of renewed purpose like we always do. 
    • I am pretty sure he was active for all 16 games plus two playoff games last year.
