Colts sign RB Spencer Ware

Recommended Posts

A very Ballard signing. Curious about the contract terms, but I really like this.

Something in my mind told me this one was coming.

It is a very good signing, he is a well rounded back that is big enough to run between the tackles and catch out of the backfield. He is definitely our Mack insurance.

Guess Ajayi just wasn't healthy enough

Does this mean Wilkins and Williams will be cut/traded? I would expect us to only carry 3 RB's week 1.

One of them will have to be cut. I think Wilkins can still go to the practice squad.

But at that point, I would expect other teams to snag him off our practice squad. I guess we'll see!

Why 3?  And, you forgot Hines.

 

Nyheim Hines

 

Marlon Mack

 

Spencer Ware

 

Jordan Wilkins

 

Jonathan Williams

The best off season in Colts history, has somehow became even better. Ware gives the Colts, by far, the best RB group in the NFL.

Because most people don’t think of Hines as really a RB. He is more of a gadget guy I think.

Because the team can carry only 53, and with an emphasis on having a good rotation of pass rushers, for example, something has to give in terms of what your ideal number would be at some other position, and that might easily be RB.

Embarrassed to say I don't know anything about him. Had to google him heh. Had good size. Is he a power back. Look like he's been a career backup.

Pretty sure by his comment, he doesn't anticipate Hines going anywhere.

 

Mack

Hines

Ware

 

=3 RB's

I guess, or contract terms. Was hoping for Ajayi but Ware seems ok too.

I don't expect Hines to be going anywhere. Wilkins would be the most likely candidate to get cut, as it's a given Williams is probably gone now after camp.

Williams definitely the odd man out imo. I actually think Wilkins might still take thd spot over Ware. We shall see how camp turns out.

 

Good signing regardless. Competition everywhere.

Jamaal Charles & Kareem Hunt made it pretty difficult to get carries in KC.

Ware is a good back. Hes just been injured and/or in between carries to Charles and Hunt

Wow, the additions to the offense this offseason are really piling up. What great, strategical signings too, Funchess is the only guy you can halfway say was overpaid, and at that price, and their cap space, even that's a stretch. Man, man, man, I'm excited to what they look like next season! Mack, Hines, and Ware in the backfield, TY, Funchess, Campbell, Cain, Ebron, and Doyle catching passes, and Luck as our QB (o line needs no introduction). Plus Hines catching passes, and Campbell getting hand offs haha, so many possibilities! Here's to hoping they stay healthy, and that this is a magical season boys!

Yeah, the SB champs that had Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead and James White just got Damien Harris for Burkhead insurance, they are still the front runner in the league.

Another in a long list of ho- hum rb's for the Colts. If/when Mack goes down the dropoff in talent will be significant.

Those are all system guys. Any list for best RB's that includes Burkhead is LOL

Definitely injury concerns for him.  I'm sure will keep 4 RBs, and hopefully put one of the guys cut (Wilkins or Williams) on the PS.

Out of the red and into the blue.  haha

 

Yet another KC departure.

 

We got Houston and now Ware from the team that beat us in the playoffs.  :thmup:

He had a very good 2016 season.....almost 1000 yds rushing  and over 400 yds receiving. (In 14 games)

 

Missed all of 2017 with major knee surgery.

 

Played sparingly in 2018 season until later in the season when he started two games.

 

Injuries then sidelined him for the last few games of the 2018 regular season, and into the playoffs.

 

Per Rotoworld, his recent injuries were hamstring, shoulder, knee....

 

Obviously injuries are a major concern, but at 5-10 and 230 pounds, if he can get healthy, and stay healthy, he would be an excellent compliment to the Colts running backs.
