One impression I am getting is that this is a low priority thing to deal with as far as the Colts are concerned …….Or they wanted to see if people where gonna call Ballard to inquire about trading him .

This is an unusual situation. A 25-year-old  who seems to have the talent to get the job done, but because of a history of getting in trouble that has repeatedly delayed his progress through college and the start of this pro career doesn't yet have any pass attempts in an NFL regulation game. Can you think of any quarterback who at age 25 didn't have a single NFL pass attempt, yet went on to a successful career?

A lot of things could be happening. And keep in mind, if they did want to keep him, they have to pick a guy to cut too. If that were the case, they could be shopping the potential cut to other teams. It's a lot more than just adding or releasing a guy.

Really speaks to the talent level he has that he isn’t gearing up for the XFL right now.

 

He just looks like an NFL starting QB. He has that, dare I say, swag about him and has that sort of quick twitch athleticism and rifle arm that you traditionally see with NFL starters. It’s a look that sets them apart from backups. An “it” factor. He has it. Watch him lead a scoring drive and it’s obvious.

 

That’s why I’ve been intrigued by him since the first time I saw him in the first preseason game. I’d puke if he goes elsewhere and becomes a stud and we’re stuck with an average game manager.

Given he's acted right, and performed well, he'd get grabbed up quickly. I'd prefer to not see him on a opposing team lol. Regardless of if JB makes it or not, CK is simply a good prospect. I also think a small town like Indy, an organization like the Colts, and with a HC that has ties to his uncle, is the perfect place to help the kid mature and grow.

And the other teams were like.. Who??? You want what for him?

 

And Ballard replied: Don't you read the Colts forum? This guy's a star in the making.. Lol

I’m pretty sure that every team is aware of a guy who put up the 3rd most total yards in a single season in SEC history and a guy who has the highest score every recorded by SportsScience, beating out scores by guys like Brees, Mahomes, Mayfield, and Goff.

 

They know who he is.

I wouldn’t value a cherry picked volume stat as a way of evaluating talent, especially college stats. Look at who is number 1 and 2 on that list.

 

Teams of course have an idea who he is, which makes the fact he’s not exactly been highly sought after telling. It won’t just be down to his off field antics. 

 

I’m sure he has talent, whether that can be translated is another matter. I’d like to see him kept and developed further.

 the colts picked him up, we dont know that no one else would have

 

two months passed between getting cut from denver and signing in indy, teams were probably waiting to get an idea of his suspension and what not.  ballard was just the first to act on him

Have you guys seen some of the backup's playing in recent games in this league? Not many of them look as athletic or accurate as CK. No doubt he would be picked up, especially after a decently strong showing in preseason. 

 

Sounds like he's practicing with the team today. My bet is he is on the 53 and we will carry 3 QB's for the rest of the year.

He signed a 1 year minimum contract .   If there were other teams in the mix,   it seems he would have been paid more

Correct. He doesn’t look like a backup when he plays. He’s the real deal and assuming he stays clean off the field he’s going to be a stud with some team. Just hope it’s with us.

CB signed him before we even knew what his suspension would be, the rest could have been waiting that out.  2 games still seems light for what he did to me

 

he was only on the market for 2 months, not that long for a guy that just got in trouble, again

He was cut in October.   Colts picked him up in may

Sounds like the best thing to do.

We just don't keep a QB on the practice squad.

Our worst roster player goes to the PS instead.

ok but his hearing was in march for first-degree criminal trespassing.  colts singed him two months later, no one was going to sign him in the meantime 

 

i dont think we can conclude that no one else was interested, they could have been waiting this out to see what happened.  ballard was the first to act

If teams thought he had great talent he would have been scooped up.    NFL players have done far worse and not got cut

 

He had a lot of uncertainty surrounding him and a looming suspension...and the Colts were a good spot because they (at the time) had a QB1 and QB2 on the roster...so they wouldn't be depending on him...and they of course had the connections.

I think you may be right

 

But, I truly hope they keep him

 

IF he is cut, there is more to this story than we all know

 

Maybe he has mashed potatoes for brains........

 

Maybe he is still a JERK

The Colts need to see what they have with Kelly. Jacoby is not a superbowl caliber QB, Hoyer is average at best. 

I disagree.   You have no way of knowing if Brissett can lead this team to the Superbowl.   Less of Kelly.   Jacoby is the QB of this team this season.   If not for AV, they would be 2-0.  I'll take what he is doing any day.  Brissett has a 108 rating right now.   Had over 113 in the preseason compared to Kelly's 94.7.    The football minds on the Colts team think Brissett is better than Kelly.   

 

I do hope they keep Kelly for future consideration.

    • I disagree with this. I believe Ballard didn't want to pay up for an EDGE rusher. He admitted he wanted Autry back, and he went to the Titans instead. That was plan A. Afterward, he signed Rochell and re-signed Muhammed to somewhat stabilize the D-Line. He is now having to decide whether to re-sign Houston, or draft an EDGE in the first two rounds.    We are being forced to see what we have in Banogu, Turay, and Lewis. They are all 2nd round picks and it's sink or swim for them. They definitely aren't better options than Autry and Houston. I would say the same about the top EDGE rushers in FA this year. Cheaper? Yes. Better? No. Right now, we don't have an EDGE rusher that we can depend on. Maybe that changes, but EDGE is our biggest weakness on the team, bar none. At least with LT, it can be masked with Q and the rest of the O-Line along with some solid depth we signed. We are literally masking the entire EDGE spot with Buckner right now, and we're fully dependant on signing Houston back, or drafting an EDGE rusher that makes an immediate impact without knowing yet if Banogu, Turay, or Lewis improves.   Unfortunately, losing Autry hurt pretty badly. That will be hard to make up without some luck.
    • Tremble has been one of my early favorites   I saw one of the commentators mention the other day, that Tremble has had issues with drops   The little games I have watched, they didnt throw much to him...... is this an issue?    
    • You may end up being right, but lets be honest, these 4 are not playmakers, they are just familiar names to us on a roster.   We need some pass rush to get this defensive scheme to work. None of these 4 have proven that they can bring this on a consistent basis   When the offensive line was weak, we drafted both Q and Smith in the same year   I hope they take the same tact this year. 1 early, and 1 mid rounds that can develop.   Also, 3 of these 4 are free agents next year. We will have some churn next year.   We had better load up at an important position, IMHO              
    • OtC has us at $23.5m w/o Carrie signing. I imagine he is close to minimum, but will figure him in at $2m for this. So that would be a top 51 cap hit of $1.2m. Dropping us to $22.3m.   Now if we were to sign Ertz and Houston for your $12m that would only be a top 51 cap hit of $10.4m, dropping our cap space to $11.9m.   Currently only 2 of our draft picks count against the top 51: #21 - $2.48m 2nd - $1.15m   Those 2 would only be a top 51 cap hit of $2m, dropping our cap space to $9.9m.     All other picks would fall below that threshold and not count against the top 51 cap.   Saying that, your scenario has us trading down(likely, imo), so good chance  it would be our 1st or 2nd, which would lower those cap hits.     So I would say your scenario would leave us with around $10m left.
    • I think Ballard thinks the guys we have now, if healthy, are better options. Add a DE in the draft and we're fine.
