Al Woods

Recommended Posts

I don’t often start my own topics here so please forgive me if I’m not setting this up right. What is the deal with al woods? Is he getting re-signed? Is he leaving? Did Grover replace him? I thought he did a fine job as a run stopper until his injury. I for one would be totally fine with giving him a re-up. Any news you have would be appreciated! 

thanks

Grover Stewart was slowly taking snaps away from him as the season went on and then virtually all of them when he was injured.

The interior of the D line needs an upgrade over Ridgeway, Grover

and Woods.

Not sure there’s a wrong way to start a thread unless the subject is being covered in another thread 

 

I doubt they re sign Woods.  With the Houston signing and the fact that we are in pretty good shape at UT I think we look at the NT position as one of the top needs left.   I still want a SS early and a later round corner.

I agree with the consensus that Al is gone. He lost his starting job; he’s getting long in the tooth; and the Colts are moving on from him and potentially a few others as well. Hassan Ridgeway, are you listening?  It’s shape up or ship out time. A DT selected early in the draft will be a direct threat  to your future in Indy. Here’s hoping you take it to the next level this year.

I agree as well. As much as I appreciate the contribution that Al Woods provided on our "challenged" DLine, I am sorry to say that it looks like he's about to be replaced with either an improved Grover, or a first/second round draft pick. 

 

Aren't these exciting times for Colts fans!

With CB wanting to go younger , I don’t suspect that he wont be back. I think there is a strong chance that an interior guy falls to us in the First round. Which is why the Justin Houston signing makes more sense, all of the top edge pass rushers are more than likely off of the board by the time we pick.

 Totally agree. We need a guy that can draw double teams. Maybe Stewart can develop into that, maybe that’s going to come from 26 or 34, but push up the middle is getting more important with guys like Donald Chris Jones and Cox wrecking havoc.

All quarterbacks struggle with pressure from the interior

of the line. Actually, if we are ever to beat the Patriots then

pressure up the gut of the line is paramount.

This could lead me to see Dexter Lawrence being picked st 26 or 34.

    • Ballard and Reich seem high on Brissett and will probably try to give him a long term contract after the season. If the Colts end up tanking the season then I'd expect them to draft their future QB in the first round of the 2020 Draft.
    • Plus there is the rare possibility Luck changes his mind several years from now and unretires once he's 100% healthy, or decides to coach in some capacity. Luck did say Indy was his home, unless he changes his mind. We own his contract rights, so it'd be nice to leave open the possibility.
    • No you weren't. Still aren't. And no I wasn't.   I stand by everything I said in that post, which was directed at your absurd insistence that you're tougher than Andrew Luck because you bowled a 220 with a sore back.    And your response to this situation is petty and small, and pretty much reinforces everything I said earlier. 
    • Already said, but just to repeat:   He will count $18.4m against the the 2019 cap, and $6.4m against the 2020 cap. Nothing after that.    I get why they're not making an issue of the roster bonus. I don't like the precedent that it sets, but this is a rare situation. And when superstars retire and get asked to pay back bonus money, it usually goes poorly (like Calvin Johnson). So clean break, and it keeps good relations between the team and the player moving forward. 
    • Probably not but he's who we have now.  It's up to Brissett and the coaching staff to prove that they can be productive.  I have a sneaking suspicion, no evidence mind you, that Reich and Co prefer Kelly but hes got to serve his suspension. Its Jacoby's job to loose and hes got my full support, if not my full confidence.  Bottom line is Luck is gone.  Fans will move on after week 1 and the organization has already done so.  Given the circumstances i think we're in the best hand we could be.  Nothing to do now but see how it plays out.  Love Luck, grateful for the past 7 years, but hes moved on.  One day is all it's taken me to follow suit.  He's gone fans,  Colts play with the QB's they have not the one they want just like '17.  We all get to see what they're made of.  Go Colts.
