Colts in on Ramsey?

He is guessing.    That move would be very Anti Ballard

 

I'm thinking the same thing, but he's a beat writer in south Florida & has 68,000 followers, so I'm assuming he's at least somewhat plugged in.

Could be leveraging Kelly in a trade which might be the only way they would trade within Division

Lol. This guy is crazy. How would a dolphins beat writer know this. We don’t really need a CB. Ballard is never going to give up draft capital with the QB situation not settled yet.

It will take a hell of a lot more than a 3rd string qb .  The jags are reportedly wanting 2 firsts

How long is Ramsey signed for?

 

1 more year left on his rookie deal plus a 5th year option, but he wants a long-term deal.

Agreed.

From what I read (Im not a CB expert) Ramsey is an A level CB but thats a lot to give up for any player. Particularly one that cant get along with his coach.

No disagreement but doesn't mean we didn't offer it.

I don't see Ballard, in any reality, giving up *two* 1st-round picks for Ramsey.  I'd offer a 3rd and a 6th.

The Colts are always in the discussion on anybody that's 'available'. It was kind of funny before, but now it's getting beyond ridiculous.

I really can't see Ballard doing this at specially for the cost that might be required. Also Ramsay is not quite the best team player that Ballard could ask for

Your offer is a joke.

It depends on how the Jaguars view Chad Kelley. Do they see him as a potential starter, over G. Minshew, until Foles returns?

 

If so, a first and a starting/back up QB would be a reasonable offer.

 

Still, this does not sound like a Ballard type  move. And Ramsey is a not a Ballard type of player, so all of this is highly improbable to begin with.

There is no way we are giving up a 2020 first. That's just not happening.  plus Ramsey's personality just doesn't fit this locker room.

The Steelers traded Antonio Brown, arguably the best WR in the NFL, for a 3rd and a 5th.

 

Some of you jokers overpay.

They are all from the same guy. 

I'm calling nonsense.

The Colts would never sign a guy with that attitude.

Unless they feel like his attitude is the result of being in a toxic atmosphere. Eric Ebron & Devin Funchess weren't exactly locker room darlings either.

I mean if it’ll end up being a somewhat late 1st pick we are giving up, and someone like Quincy Wilson, I’m possibly for it. Ballard could still use his two 2nd round picks to go get his guy in round 1 at QB if he wants. Still hope we go after a guy like Jordan Love at QB. 

 

And we will have ample cap space for awhile with Luck retiring to pay Ramsey.

Fitzpatrick isn’t the true shutdown corner that Ramsey is. Ramsey would make our secondary elite.

He stated Indy "IS" shopping for a CB upgrade.  That's a very definitive statement.  How would he know that unless he heard it from multiple teams.  It only took one 1st. to get Minkah.  They took Pittsburghs because they think that will be a top 10 pick.  We could have been in on him for all we know.  Our 1st and Kelly might be something they are thinking about.  This could explain why a Kelly decision is taking so long.

There was never any indication those two guys were bad in the lockeroom. Ebron was with fans and funchess just had a problem with catching the ball. Character was never a issue with either

He also said Dallas and Indy was a guess. He doesn’t understand how ballard works. Maybe we are looking for a CB with Desir injury. I would think they might call up Collins.

Yea can't  see Ballard  giving  up two firsts. If he did our secondary would be way better, but not sure it would be better value than what we would have gotten  from the two firsts. Wish Barkley  was on the trading block. Love to see him behind  this oline

Eberflus just gave Wilson a ton of glowing comments today. After his game Sunday I doubt he would be traded

Funchess had issues with coaches & teammates, it was highlighted on All or Nothing. Ebron seemed to have issues with everyone in Detroit towards the end of his tenure there, I can't speak for his locker room presence though.

If all we had to do was call up Collins then why bother calling other teams looking for an up grade?  The way I read his quotes is we are the team that he mentions the most and he sees us as the AFC team and he mentions Dallas as the NFC team.  He didn't mention Dallas was looking for an upgrade but we definitely are.

    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?
