Evan Boehm signs tender


Recommended Posts

With Boehm signing his tender, not only the starting 5, but the depth also is pretty much set for 2019. Boehm, Haeg, Webb, Clark are all decent backups. Plus there's Antonio Garcia, who, before his health issue, seemed to be a lock as the Patriots future LT, a really promising prospect. He's here and looks to be healthy now. Ballard signed him for 2 years, not just one, so I think he is counting on him. Josh Andrews and Poehls are already over the 10 which they will bring in to the final 53, altough they are also OK backup options.

 

So, unless there will be someone falling big time, I don't see an OL be drafted in the first 2 days of the upcoming draft. Maybe a late rounder or a couple of UDFA-s to compete for the last roster spot(s).

I forgot all about García. If he can stay healthy he has tons of potential.  If they’re honest about the size listed on the Colts roster, then he put the weight back on.

 

Nothing personal against Clark, but I’m hoping the depth is so good that he gets beat out.

I don't think him signing a 2 year deal is significant of anything . Almost all of the similar deals were for 2 years.

More important than people realize to have him back with Kelly's injury history. 

 

Yeah Kelly always seems to be nicked up and missing games here and there.  Hasn't had a major injury that sidelined him for the season yet.  But has had several injuries that have him out for 1 to 4 games at a time.

He signed Garcia and Ward to 2 year deals last year. That's it when it comes to the street free agents picked up during the season.

 

They will prove to be extremely valuable this year (and beyond perhaps).

I guess I still don't get the significance , nor do I totally understand the point you are making. Without going back to his contract , I'm sure Garcia has no guaranteed money , so how does that mean Ballard had "plans for him."  It's just good business to sign guys like that to 2 year deals in the event they pan out ... no ? Why not sign him to that deal rather than a 1 year deal ?

 

I'm not saying he has no chance and I hope he kills it. But fact is the Jets had cut him and there is nothing evident to prove he was highly sought after.

If he has another year of missing 1 to 4 games, chances are, we may deem him injury prone. :) 

 

But then Bob Sanders was injury prone too but made a difference when he was there.

Boehm was only signed to a one year deal and yet he played significant snaps.

 

Garcia was the 4th rated tackle in the draft in 2017 so bringing him in on a two year deal to learn, gain more strength, and clean up technique on the PS was done with a plan I'm sure.

 

He was drafted to be the heir apparent for Nate Solder and was talented enough to do so in many peoples eyes.....so yes, I see parallels to our current situation.

True, but Kelly is a difference maker on that line though. We are a much better running team when Kelly is on the field.

    • The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor did it have Marvin Harrison or Bob Sanders, Dungy wasn't the Coach as well. It is 2006 hands down.
    • Probably 2005, that  team was loaded and then played a tragically bad game to the sixth seeded Steelers in the playoffs.    
    • In addition to some of the examples from @stitches:   - Was your offense restricted last season by having a less mobile QB? If so, in what ways? - Your offense was bottom third in play action attempts last season. Can you talk about how play action fits in your offense, and how it might be affected by the physical ability of the QB? - Your defense had some really good stretches, but was less effective against good QBing. (Example, short clock but long TD drives against the Bills/Packers, etc.) What will it take for the defense to take another step forward this season? - What will be Press Taylor's role on the staff? Will that differ from his role in Philly? - You went from a RB coach with decades of experience, to one who hasn't played or directly coached RBs so far. What went into that decision and what kind of impact might it have on the RB group? - At what positions do you think you most need improved playmaking? - How do you think the limited college season, no Combine, and restricted travel might impact prospect evaluation? - To what extent, if any, do you think being the primary play caller impacts your game management and decision making? - Do you still have weekly protection meetings like you did in 2018? How might those be impacted by the changes on the coaching staff?   Just saying, there's a lot of meat out there. Don't have to keep gnawing at the same bone.   Imagine this group trying to cover Gregg Popovich...
    • In your opinion what team was the best Colts team ever?
    • I think the biggest issue with this mock is it is assuming that filling spots on the OL is as simple as just that. We have a void at LT, so we trade our starting center to then draft one. Then we use another draft pick to get a new center. On paper, that fills the needs, but OL is so much more than that. This isn't Madden where you can insert any G with comparable skills and gets the same result. Chemistry is one of the biggest pieces of the puzzle for an OL and that's not plug and play. If you have members of your OL playing at a high level, you don't trade them away, because you're not just potentially weakening that position, but also the ones around it.   I'm all for out of the box thinking and appreciate your mocks presenting situations that most of us would never think of. With that, the further "out of the box" you get, the more criticism you'll typically get. With this one, I think the criticism is less with the players picked (I love Darrisaw, just not that high), and more to do with the disruption of OL chemistry that is never a good idea.
