Is Chad Kelly now a trade asset? (merge)

Jets were the first team I thought of. I saw Siemian go down and Luke Falk get the reps on MNF. Jets have a week 4 bye, and have the time to get him acquainted if they acquire him.

What do the Jets have that we would like in return?  I wouldn't mind picking up a veteran wideout if we can snag one.

 

Demayrius Thomas perhaps?  They brought him in as a target for Darnold but have no earthly use for him right now.  If Ballard thinks we're a division contender, picking up a strong veteran as a stopgap until Funchess can take the field again makes sense.

Bilal Powell might be expendable out there with Ty Montgomery signed out there, so we can do a swap and improve our receiving back depth, to be honest. Outside Nyheim Hines, I don't think Mack or Wilkins qualify as stellar receiving options from the RB position.

 

Plus it is not like they are going to give you much in return. Don't expect Leonard Williams or Quinnen Williams. :)

Kelly + a middling pick for Leonard Williams?

 

The season is going nowhere fast for that team and Williams is an impending FA...and the Colts have a ton of cap space and could use a stud DL player.

Trevor Siemian is out for the year and Sam Darnold could miss a few weeks due to mono.

 

100% certain the Jets will claim Kelly if he is cut. We should be able to get some kind of trade done, IMO. A 6th rounder and Bilal Powell for Kelly??

This is taking too long.  Something must be up. The longer it goes the more it looks like a trade or going on the 53.

True. We got him for nothing and we get something in return in a trade, nothing wrong with that.

Agreed on both fronts. Though I think keeping him is the best option unless we're gonna get a 4/5 or higher pick.  A 6/7th would be dumb

I think only the 6th rounder is more likely.   Possibly a 5th from a desperate Jets team.

A 6th rounder with a player can happen. If it is a 5th rounder, we won't get a player in all likelihood. A trade for Joe Flacco for a 4th rounder has shot down the QB trade market, and the realist in me would have to settle for a 6th rounder, it seems like. :)

What is the deadline on the decision?

 

Kelly is officially on the “exempt/commissioner permission” list, the Colts have a little bit of time to put that plan into action. Yesterday, on the Round Table Live on 1070 The Fan, Reich said over the next 24-48 hours. So it could go into tomorrow.

Would Hoyer bring more value in a trade than Kelly?  I can see the Jets wanting Hoyer more because you have a veteran to mentor Darnold when he comes back rather than a potential rival...  If Hoyer is more desirable what could we get from teams?  Be it picks and/or player?

while I agree, lets not forget that the Flacco trade happened well before all these QBs went down. If that were to happen this week, I would bet the Flacco deal would have been somewhat greater

Why would any team trade a backup QB after what we have seen so far with 14 games to go?

Brees and Foles are now out, as is Darnold.  Roethlisberger may need Tommy John.  That's 3-4 teams in need of either a starter or a backup QB.  Other QB such as Trubisky and Winston are struggling hard, and TB in particular may be looking to move on soon.

 

Spots are opening up for QBs right now.

 

I'm sure other teams were watching Chad Kelly have a solid preseason. I wonder if Ballard is getting any inquiries.  If he is, with Brissett showing some promise of at least looking like a competitive QB, and Hoyer serving as an unofficial second coach in the backup role, I wonder whether we couldn't swing a trade to bring in something of value from one of the teams hurting for QB depth right now.

 

Worth thinking about.

 

If so, where would you look?  Would you go for a kicker to give our special teams a shot in the arm/give AV some competition?  Maybe some additional WR depth or another RB?  Look for a talented DB who isn't getting the playing time he deserves?  

 

Either way I trust Ballard to do the right thing, but we do have some spots to shore up, and it's vanishingly unlikely that Kelly is going to play a down for us this year, so you have to give it at least some thought if you can find a taker for Kelly's obvious talent.

They could trade hoyer and have kelly as backup  or trade kelly, or keep both.

it's simple.

 

If Kelly had a chance to develop in the field, he might turn into a great asset.

 

The problem is that Brissett gives you a much better chance to win any given game and while we can still fight for the playoffs that matters.

 

A team with a lost season like the Jets or Jags could roll the dice on Kelly and give him the time he  needs to learn on the job.  OUR season is NOT lost and we need to act accordingly.

 

While we're still fighting for the playoffs, we really can't develop Kelly.  This prevents us from taking full advantage of Kelly in the same way a team with nothing to play for could. 

 

The Jets could start Kelly right now, get him going in the hopes that he makes progress and is able to lead the team in future years.  We're trying to compete EVERY year, we really can't do that.

 

Thus, Kelly has more value for a bad team than he does right now for us, a middling team that's trying to get better.

I'm really not sold on Darnold.  Even without this recent illness, which came at the absolute worst possible time for him, Darnold really hasn't developed very much since he was drafted.  Hedging one's bets makes a certain amount of sense in New Jersey right now.

 

That said, even without NYJ there's some teams that are in flux at the quarterback position.  TB and JAX both come to mind almost immediately.  Winston is falling out of favor fast and nobody thinks Minchew is the long term answer.

Really not the case.  I agree he doesn't have a good roster around him but your argument falls flat immediately when you compare turnover rates.

 

Darnold is a bit over 1 to 1, TD to INT.  Brissett, on perhaps an even worse team on paper (on D, no OL) was nearly 2 to 1

 

The talent is similar, with perhaps an edge to Darnold, but Brissett makes way better decisions with the football.

 

Believe me, if Brissett had been as much in the habit of handing footballs to the other team as Darnold is right now I'd not be anywhere near as ardent in backing him.  I consider that ratio one of the most important in discussing a QB's contributions because taking care of the rock is the #1 job of a quarterback.  Darnold doesn't do it well.  Even in the absolute worst case scenario in 2017, Brissett  did.  That's the difference as I see it.

well of course you will throw less picks when every pass is 5 yards or less 

I'm like 90% you're related to JB you only showed up after he became the starter. and you pump him up more than anyone not named chloe

And yet Brissett has exactly as many TDs as Darnold.  Currently tied at 18  And he didn't have to give away footballs like it was gridiron Christmas to do it.

 

Brissett is not only better than Darnold, he's WAY better.  The only valid argument in favor of Darnold is potential upside.   Which we have seen nowhere on a football field yet.

    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.      
    • Yea that’s what his combine profile states but when the scouts took him through position drills and had him run his 40 at pro day their numbers tell a different story. And anyone can tell you a 40 yard dash is all about technique. Track speed doesn’t necessarily translate to “On the Field Speed” but I found the article and verbatim this is what the scouts said on Willis. If you’re curious to read the entire article it’s on Colts.com and titled “Through the Scouts Eye”   “So, you see him not only playing in the box, but I mean, he's played free safety. He plays nickel. He's played on the slot and he did a pretty good job with that. I think he's faster than a lot of people and a lot of people give him credit for it and he tested pretty well that way. I think he ran in the 4.4s, and he's a very well-rounded player. I was always taught a long time ago slow safety usually get your beat, dumb safeties always get your beat. He's the polar opposite of both. So, we're really excited about him.”
