hypothetical Funchess question

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to sort through the DF deal and seeing what his actual cap hits are for this season. What I have found was that he pretty much has a 7 million dollar roster bonus plus his yearly salary. My question is, lets say that DF really does not do well in the camp and through the preseason but someone like Fountain really shines through. Knowing we are keeping TY, Cain (most likely), Campbell, and they seem extremely set on Rogers. That makes 4. I know they have hinted to maybe only keeping 4 this year but I can't see that, it has to be at least 5 if not 6. Under the scenario that we only keep 4 or even 5 and Rogers is a definite guy for the special teams play primarily, slot back up secondarily, and Fountain is clearly outplaying Funch, what is the cap hit if we cut him prior to making the 53 after preseason is complete? 

 

I know it is far fetched and certainly not happening if that 7 million is his cap hit but I was looking for clarity on that part. Thanks, and this would certainly be a huuuuuge shocker if it did go down like this.

We would have to pay the $7m. It was guaranteed at signing.

 

We would save $3m of his base salary though.

 

Long story short, he will be here for this season.

I don't believe any team keeps 4 WR. Teams keep at least 5 WR on their roster at all times. Funchess will be our No. 2 or No. 3 WR this year. The coaches seemed to be giving off encouraging signs as well

I think we might keep 6 WR. At least to start the season. With Campbell being s rookie and Cain coming off injury we still do have a lot of uncertainty. Plus funchess being new he is a little bit of one also.

I think we're keeping 6 WR at the minimum on the active roster. TY, Rogers, Funchess, Campbell, Cain, and Pascal. We could very well call up Fountain as well for just in case but I think this is the line up for right now. Luck will be passing around the ball a lot again this year.

Yeah - I cannot possibly imagine that anyone from the Colts has said anything about how many WRs they will carry.  Maybe someone on here speculated that but no one who would know has said that.

This is nothing against Funchess, but we don't get much out of one year rental WRs

 

2012-Donnie Avery

2013-Darrius Heyward-Bey

2014-Hakeem Nicks

2015-Andre Johnson

2016-Philip Dorsett (Drafted)

60 catches, 781 yards and 3 tds from Avery in 2012 was about the best production individually.

 

Grant/Inman matched that collectively last year.

 

Funchess is younger and likely looking for the BIG payday so I think he'll put up better numbers than we have come to expect.

 

With the depth in next years draft (per Ballard) I'd likely let him walk and get draft pick compensation AND draft a young stud. This is, of course, in addition to one or two players show improvement/breakout this year in the group of Cain, Pascal, Johnson, Fountain, Ishmael and Parris balls out as well.

Stop worrying about it. There is a 0 chance of him getting cut IMO!

There may be times where he looks like our #1... formation wise and production wise. He's going to be difficult to cover, especially when trying to minimize the mismatches Frank Reich is going to exploit with Hilton, Campbell, Doyle, Ebron and Hines.

We'll be keeping 5 or 6 WR's. And why are you concerned about the cap hit if Funchess is cut, especially since we like a gazillion $ under?

Well, there was an article and I’m pretty sure it was something said by Reich that we may only keep 4 wr’s. Maybe it was the writers opinion, I don’t recall but it was stated with in the past few weeks. I too would think 5-6 but just going off what I recall. Step back from your high and mighty ledge buddy, it’s offseason and it’s a scenario that is for discussion.

It’s possible the speculation part but it was from an article read within past few weeks and if iirc, it was with Reich interview. Again, maybe it was post interview and that was what the interviewee took away from it. Idk.

I’m not specifically worried about cap hit. I’m just wondering how the contracts get made if it’s a hit only if they make the 53 roster. Like I said, if it’s a 7 million hit either way, it’s zero chance he goes. My dilemma and wonder comes in the way of what if one of these young guys really break out and it’s down to them or A floundering DF who plays like he did in Carolina? It’s just my thoughts, no big deal.

Well...    we didn’t sign him to be a one year rental.    According to Ballard, we tried to sign him for two or three years.

But Funchess preferred to gamble on himself with a one year.

Just my opinion but I think Funchess is clearly a better WR then the ones that failed.

He absolutely won't be cut. He'll:

 

Have a good to great year and get paid well in Indy, or move on and we get a 3rd rd comp pick. 

 

Have a decent to poor year and sign a reasonable 3 year deal in Indy or somewhere else.

Lol. That’s probably all true. Let’s hope for our sake, he balls out, his drops aren’t an issue and he plays to his size.

Johnson was the worst wr pick up, doesn’t matter which GM did it. We haven’t seen DF play a snap for us yet, he could be a bomb or a bust. Nobody knows what we are getting yet.

Im just saying the problem we had was more Grigson than Ballard.   I’m not worried about Aiken or Grant.   We’ve now added Funchess, Paris, Cain and Fountain.  I trust Ballard.   I believe in Ballard.

 

I view the list as more coincidence than anything else....

Johnson was toast at that point...but no way he was a worse WR than Aiken. Aiken had a low catch rate that would make DHB blush and caught 0 TDs. AJ at least provided some value.

 

It depends on how you define "worst pickup." Is it performanc relative to expectations? Then sure...AJ would be it. But Aiken was the worst player...and probably a negative value.

I thought the worst of them all was Darrius Hayward (Heywood?) Bey.  

 

Bad hands and bad rout running.  Bad, bad combination for a wide receiver.

Even though I am excited about the young WRs and even though I didn't like Grigs...I am going to have to defend him here a bit.

 

With Grigs there is 5 seasons of data points...Ballard only has two (because we haven't yet see how this one plays out from the WR standpoint)...so there are going to be more of these on-year WR "misses." I don't expect Ballard will continue to sign these stopgap WR types...but like Grigs...he was definitely not immune to paying money to crappy WRs.

 

So I don't think it's totally fair to discredit Grigs for having a "problem" with one-year WR busts...and then toss out the two that Ballard has had in his first seasons. It's been an issue for a long time.

 

Also...if we judge Ballard on the whole picture...we should Grigs as well. Grigs re-signed Reggie...when many thought they should move on. He signed Avery...the last good one-year WR deal (until this year hopefully). He drafted Hilton. He drafted Moncrief...who people were just as high on as they are Campbell or Cain. He brought in Chester Rogers. He made some pretty great moves...and some pretty bad ones as well.

 

And while we can be confident about Ballard...when it comes to WR...it's still  wait and see.

The WR stable will be much better this year vs last season, regardless of

the Funchess aquisitition. Cain/Fountain are poised for a sophomore jump

after a year in an NFL, Marcus Johnson was doing some nice things early

on before his injury and we may have the steal of the draft in Parris Campbell.

 

Throw in a bunch of UDFA's that fit "Ballard's mold" of height, speed and catch

radius and we should have a pretty formidable receiving squad.

I would love to get a link to this mystery article. I follow the Colts and football pretty closely  and I sure don’t remember any article ever talking about going with just 4 WR’s on a 53 man roster.

There was an article where he talked about competition for that 5th spot. He didn't say we were only keeping so many, but the way it was framed made me think their target was 5. Pretty sure it was Reich. I'll look for the article in a bit.

 

Personally I think we keep 5, but I can see 6 too with all the adds/rooks/recoveries/projects, etc.  TY, Cain, Campbell, Funch, and Rogers IMO are the base 5. I'd bet they will keep one at minimum on the PS. IMO, Fountain, Pascal, or Dulin could end up on the PS, perhaps two. And if Cain's recovery is slow, he could end up on the PUP and we keep another. 

 

As far as Funch is concerned, if they use him primarily at the routes he's good at (that they published), he'll be pretty limited at X. If Cain comes back fast, even more limited. I think his sweet spot is going to be as big-slot, and RZ/short-yardage X.

Here's the article. Again, doesn't say anything definitely, but I'd say it's safe to assume we're keeping at minimum 5 based on Reich's comment below (bolded in red).

 

https://coltswire.usatoday.com/2019/06/06/indianapolis-colts-wide-receiver-competition-devin-funchess-parris-campbell/

Quote

 

As the Indianapolis Colts wrap up organized team activities Thursday and look to the final phase of spring workouts—mandatory minicamp—there will continue to be several eyes watching over the wide receiver competition.

 

Granted, the Colts know the competition doesn’t truly get heated up until the pads come on during training camp. But head coach Frank Reich can’t help but notice how much deeper the unit is this spring compared to the group he coached in his first season just one year ago.

 

“Last year at this time it wasn’t as deep,” Reich told reporters Tuesday. “I think those battles were starting to in some ways declare themselves a little bit even now even though you know deep down you’ve got to wait until training camp. But this year definitely there is more depth there, more guys that we have a lot of confidence in.”

 

We know T.Y. Hilton has his top spot locked up as WR1. All of the roles behind him, though, are up for grabs, and there are a lot of hungry mouths looking to chomp out an impact role in the room.

 

Indy brought in Devin Funchess on a one-year deal to compete for a starting role on the outside. He made some waves early in OTAs while the Colts are awaiting the return of Deon Cain, who is expected to be ready for training camp back from is torn ACL.

 

Rookie Parris Campbell will undoubtedly receive a lot of attention, but he’s worked mostly on the second-team offense with a few designed plays allowing him to work with the first team.

 

Fourth-year wideout Chester Rogers is having a strong spring, potentially the best out of the group through OTAs. He’s a player Reich has noticed from the position this spring.

“I think Chester’s spring has been really good,” Reich said. “I mean, really good.”

 

It isn’t clear how many wide receivers the Colts will keep on the roster. They started the season with five in 2018. It appears that could be kept the same this fall, but Reich detailed what he will be looking for in those final spots on the roster.

 

“So literally it’s we’ll let it all play out and guys are going to get a lot of reps,” Reich said. “It’s a question of who can stay healthy, who can be consistent and who can contribute on special teams for that fourth and fifth spot.

 

The Colts have several position battles to watch during training camp and the preseason games, but the wide receiver room might have the most capable bodies competing for just a few spots.

 

Having that kind of depth isn’t something Reich will be too upset about.

 Ok, he floundered his way into convincing Chris Ballard to write him a check for $7M to sign his contract, another $3M in base salary, and another $3M in incentives. 
 If he earns all his bonus he will make the same $$$ as T Y for the 2019 season.
 Drop the one terrible "drops" game he had last season, and he had a better drop rate than Guess Who, T Y.
  You have been here long enough to know to refer to Spotrac or overthe cap for contract info. 
I was not a fan of the Funchess signing at all, but i educated myself on his history, watched some tape, and listened to CB and Frank. Funchess "SHOULD" be very good in our system. Yeah Funchess!

The sheer fact that Reich was an NFL QB for so long gives me confidence that he can spot a good receiver. I don’t know if he had anything to do with Grant or Any from last year, but we know he wanted Funchess so I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise.

First, you can't remove a game lol..... And you can't ignore his hands history going back to college.

 

Second, you have to look at targets. TY had 120 targets, while Funch had 79. That's less than 2/3rds of TY's. I'd also note that TY was a victim of too many forced balls when he was in double coverage. That won't happen nearly as much this year. Funch was I believe 3rd or 4th in targets for Carolina, and was rarely doubled.

 

I do agree Funchess can be good in our system, but that's if they limit him to the routes he's good at (like the ones the Colts published). I also think that Luck is good enough, and smart enough, to throw balls away from his body (he's better catching at eye level or higher, or outside of core). Regardless, I'd bet a lot of money he doesn't hit his incentive (unless we have some serious injuries at WR).

It depends on how many out of the current group they feel they can safely keep on the practice squad. I think 4 is kind of crazy, but when you look at keeping a plethora of tight ends and maybe an extra runningback on active roster, you start factoring Ebron and Hines in as receivers more than tight end and runningback, as we will likely see those two split out more than in a traditional role. That's the beauty of versatility.

Hines is a 3rd down or APB. He won't take one of the minimum 5 slots for WR. Funchess would be looked at as a TE before Ebron would be looked at as a WR.

 

Last year's PC had 1 TE, 2 WRs, 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 DEs, 1 CB, 1 OG, and 1 LB

 Of course you can remove a game. And no doubt our staff DID when evaluating his drop rate and why it may have happened.
 And Andrew has been stinkaroo his whole career at ball placement, if you want to go back for years. He Finally showed some improvement last season.
 Please explain what his Incentives are. I have been wanting to know. Thanks

    • I rewatched the game as I thought this would be pretty strange as well.  He did not play in the fourth except for his usual special teams slot.     I was confused as well by those who say he had a bad game.  He gave up one completion where he got turned around.  Other than that he was glued to his man as usual.    I think he's still having trouble living down his reputation from his rookie year. 
    • depth wise, S, OL, and iDL are my biggest concerns. if folks were grading positions ( starters and depth), i'd be surprised if many graded safety in the top half.  outside of Hooker, lots of questions, at least to me. i definitely don't agree with Venturi. ESPN doesn't either. Hopefully the starters stay healthy, and Willis grows into a stud.
    • lol... you wrote a novel. while i didn't read it all, i did skim. the mock draft stuff, it wasn't a poll. it was a well defined systemic grading. if you're mom can do well on the 1st round, why didn't your favorite guys? lol. on the wide receiver study, it was laughable. no defined parameters, no comparative cross position stats, etc.. not even Busch league stuff.  like i said, legend in your own mind.   in terms of who can dish it out, but can't take it, look at your reaction above to a "sad".... what a rant/tantrum.....  self awareness is obviously not your strongest trait. feel free to "crush" me anytime... gives me a good laugh.
    • very astute observations!!
    • You live your life like the Coyote chasing the Road Runner....    and you keep running into the mountain side,  or running off the cliff....     OK....    you're not going to change....   So, I'll take apart your nonsense --- again.    This will be the longest post I've ever made,  trying to answer all your nonsense.    Doubt you'll read it.    But here it comes....     Of course we know if Luck's injury, whatever it is,  ISN'T minor.   What minor injury do you know lasts four months?    He barely participated in any off-season program.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    The Colts have NEVER, EVER called it minor.   Not once.  The only thing they've said is he hopes to be back by certain deadlines,  and he's missed almost every one.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    This paragraph may confuse you.   It's full of common sense and logic.   I don't know how you got the nerve to try to argue that no one knows.   Unbelieveable!   Nope.   No Tantrum from me.   Just pointing ot what should be obvious,  but apparently the obvious isn't obvious to you.     By the way,  while you were giving me a sad on my post to my friend CBE,   do you know who was giving me a "like"?    CBE.    I criticized his post and he still gave me a like.    He know while we may not agree,  he knows I'm not trying to pound him.   I'm  trying to be as honest and factual as I can.    No wonder you can't see for yourself.   What triggered me, was your latest attempt to sound like you know what you're talking about.   You judged Willis on half of the first pre-season game.    That's all you've got.    That's it.   Doesn't even occur to you that that is.....   NOTHING!    Hello?    And you present it like it should be taken seriously,  when it should be laughed at.    Goodness gracious, you want to go back to the media draft comparison?    I was hoping for your sake that you wouldn't.    But since you insist.     Did you ever really look at that poll?   Seriously,  did you look at the four category breakdown?    Did you see what was actually involved?    If you did,  you shouldn't have been crowing about it.    First,  what I care about from guys like Kiper and McShay and Jeremiah and others isn't just the first round.   My  momma can do a decent job on the first round, and she's been dead for nearly 30 years!    I care about their view on ALL ROUNDS.   And your survey was only about the first round.   That's it.   There were four categories.    In three of them,  the leader got no more than 50%.   That's it.   The best person in three of the four categories scored no more than 50 percent.   When the top guy is scoring no more than 50 percent and everyone else is close behind,  then no one really knows anything.    And the one category that the winner did well in --- one category --- he scored in the 90's.   And everyone else was right behind him.    So, most everyone did well in ONE OUT OF THE FOUR categories.   Big stinking deal.    I tried to tell you this silly survey didn't support what you believed but you wouldn't listen.   No surprise there.  All you cared about the results.   The fatal flaw.     Finally,  without a single fact,  you offered this opinion in that post.    I remember it like it was yesterday,  that your new age guys were doing a better job than the more traditional scouts.   Based on one poll.   One poll of one round.    And you said the older guys like Kiper and company were resting on their laurels and not working as hard.   Nope, the old guys were covering all seven rounds.    Most of your guys,  covering one round.   You have no facts to support that, but that's your view.    When logic and common sense would tell you that the guys I prefer make a ton more money and have their reputation at stake.    They have more to lose.    There's no way they're resting on anything.    But you'll say ANYTHING to try and prove a point.   There's no argument you won't twist to try to win an argument, no matter how foolish the argument is.   I've told you publicly and privately,  you're not interested in honest debate.   You're the least honest poster here.  You're only interested in winning and you'll do anything, say anything to do that.      As to the WR study.    You got crushed.   I'm talking about a bank safe fell on you and your response was to talk about cherry picking stats.    Either English is a second language or you don't know the meaning of the words.     I made two links for you.    One was almost identical to yours.    Yours covered 25 years dating back to a time when passing rules were dramatically different so comparing a receiver from 1990 to one from 2018 was silly.   We're playig a different game now.    My first link covered 20 years from 1995 to 2014 .   There was great over-lap in the two studies.  But the conclusions were entirely different.   The only reason I used it was your post said roughly 60% percent of 1st Round WR's were successes.    Mine said roughly 40%.   Guess which one you preferred?    Surprise!   Then the second link was one of my own making.    I listed every 1st round WR since Luck came into the league in 2012.  That's 7 years.   The last 7 years.   I put into bold each 1st Round WR who was clearly a success.   It came to 41%.   It also showed how few WR's have been taken in the last few drafts.   That's the NFL talking, in case you weren't paying attention.    You didn't dispute one WR.    Not one.   But you called it cherry picking.   Clearly you don't know how to use that expression correctly.    And now you throw out a list of criteria as if you're making the rules here.   Here's another free tip.   You're not.   Never have.   I'm not surprised you don't recognize the facts I put into posts.   You don't use them.   You're all about the opinion.   Most posters here are.   Because that means every single poster can simply say.....    "I'm entitled to my opinion."    Yes, they are.   Everyone is,  even you, who has no need for facts.    But what you're not entitled to is your own facts.    Just like you stated Funchess was a terrible signing based on your facts,  and it never even occured to you that Ballard and Reich had other facts that showed DF could be useful to us.    You actually thought you knew more than they did?!?    Again, unbelieveable.   You had no facts to support your nonsense about Reich being a poor play caller.   You had one game.   And I called you on it.   You've been doing a very bad back-peddle ever since,  but that's your view, with no facts to support it.   In fact all the facts support the exact opposite view.   Yet, you still try to claim victory.   It's so intellectually dishonest that it's nauseating.   And so I observed,  that with almost nothing to base it on,  you thought Willis has inconsistancies.    Thanks, Capt. Obvious.    Tomorrow will likely be sunny during the day,  turning to widely scattered darkness at night.    Anymore obvious insights?   Funny, how you now publicly call for me to ignore your posts,  when a few days ago,  in a thread I was barely even in,  you took a completely uncalled for shot at me.    Or does the phrase "legend in his own mind" not mean anything to you?      Bottom line....    you can dish it out,  especially when you think no one is looking.....   but you can't take it.   Glass ego.   I call a fraud a fraud.
