Colts interested in Ryan Kerrigan

Recommended Posts

Kerrigan would be a great addition since this team really struggled rushing Flacco yesterday. Gonna need all the pass rush this team can get going into the playoffs.

We'd be adding another old head to the team amongst the pass rushers

But if Ballard felt we were in a position to win the SB this year I could see him making this move. This team has some depth and won’t need all the picks in the draft.

I'd try and see if we can get Olivier Vernon from the Browns, given the Dorsey-Ballard connections. Yes, you might give up at least a 3rd rounder and take on a high enough contract but he would fit our D real well, IMO. I doubt the Browns can get more due to the high contract price.

There is a large list of people  I wouldn't  mind adding, but can't  see Ballard  making  a move

Ballard isn't giving up picks for a 32 year old pass rushing who is trending downwards.  I'd doubt that.

People have connected us to this or that player each year of Ballards tenure around this time and he never does anything.  Ballard rarely ever leaks out info so I don't even know where they get it from when they do this stuff.

I like it. Kerrigan's a Muncie guy (went to Muncie Central)...I have met him a few times...good dude. I bet playing for the Colts would be pretty cool.

This guy is from Muncie so it seems like he would fit in really well. He doesn’t need to be dominant. He just needs to play a part.

I’ve been a fan of Kerrigan since his Purdue days really wished the Colts would’ve taken him in draft if they could’ve made it work. He was a beast! He is getting up there in age though so not sure what he would be worth on trade and definitely not as good as he used to be, maybe being on a new team would revive him?

my guess, the Redskins or the player's agent.

If the Skins move Kerrigan in order to rebuild, seems to me like they will be asking for a higher pick than what I would want to give.

From what I have seen on Twitter it  looks like you could get him for a 4th round pick.

You can't get him for a 4th.  The skins don't want to trade him

I know that’s what I said in the original post. I was talking about if they would trade him that is about what you could get him for.

According to whom?  If it was anyone other than the Skins' GM then it's pretty irrelevant.

Not interested in Kerrigan, unless he comes super cheap. I would have been interested in Leonard Williams for a third rounder.

Denver's Derrick Wolfe has also been linked to us and he looked good yesterday.  

 

Elway is going to ask too much, to be honest. Wolfe is the perfect 1-gap disruptive guy that fit best in Wade Philips' attacking 3-4 and might be a misfit now. He should fit well here.

Leonard Williams  went to giants 

For very little in return. Colts could have made that deal and not hurt themselves.

I could be wrong, but my guess is Ballard would belly laugh at this notion.

I don't want to miss out on good players who might help our Superbowl run out of paralytic terror of "giving up too much."

 

When you're a buyer you have to be prepared to pay a premium to get what you want.    If you're not, your team stays incomplete and chances to win the big one are impacted.

 

I don't care too much about this one linebacker one way or the other, but the attitude of paralysis by analysis and being afraid to "overpay" for the guy you're targeting is an attitude that quickly turns from caution to defeatism when taken too far, and has a tendency to create self-fulfilling prophecies where it's NEVER the right time to go for it. 

 

If you care about winning, and have done your due dilligence and are convinced this guy will help you, then spend what it takes, even if it's a bit more than your computers think he's worth.  Winning sometimes requires a bit of risk.

That's what they said about Trent Williams and now he is available.  Josh Norman too.  How quickly things change.  If Ballard is serious about winning a SB this year he won't let the deadline go by without making some kind move.  Let's face it he doesn't need to sell the farm to improve the team.  He has plenty of resources at his disposal to work with.

This is the first year ballard has had a winning team at the deadline. It will be interesting if he changes his philosophy.

Let’s see if we make the playoffs and how well we do before spending draft Capitol on some guy for a year or two rental. Lots of young players that need to develop.  Ballard has been very straight forward that he will build thru the draft.  I don’t think he will trade for anyone mid season

    • So, Dallas traded back with Detroit from #51 to #67 and still got Kyle Dugger.. that's some good value, and they have an extra pick in 3rd round! Two more picks in third round for Dallas, can get a top TE still if they want.   Detroit did well too by trading up, overall got Okudah, Blacklock and Terrell Lewis - all in on their defensive rebuild. That looks great for both teams. Somehow Patricia still wouldn't rush them at QB even if he gets all of them.
    • I liked John Simon while he was here, sad to see him cut in 2018. I know he didnt fit what we were moving to but good solid player.
    • Maybe Jon Hand.    Bradtzke wasn't even here very long, would be interested to see those numbers. For some reason, every season I'm telling at our DL to get their hands up and always think back to Bradtzke.?
    • Wilson and Mahomes II will fare better than Jackson and some others more similar to Lamar.  These two have extensive baseball backgrounds, especially Russell.  Patrick's dad was a Major League pitcher.  They both know to to slide properly, and also when when to slide/duck/avoid the throw to first on a double play attempt.  This transfers to slide in the NFL to avoid big hits.  Other QB's don't learn this trait well growing up in football, and also seem to be more inclined to be a 'tough guy' and grind a couple more yards, or try to twitch out of a tackle.   Cam's game is to use his legs often, not just throw or hand off, and the hits pile up.  There's only so much gas in the tank. It's prudent to wonder how much Cam has left in his.
    • The Jets Situation - The offensive line was a disaster.  Expensive free agent Le'Veon Bell had only 3.2 yards per carry.  And 2nd year rookie QB Sam Darnold had few weapons to throw to.  It wasn't all bad.  7th in total defense.  2nd in rushing defense.   Free agent moves (some of them, anyway) George Fant, OT, Seattle (3 years, $30mm) Conner McGovern, C, Denver (3 years, $27mm) Greg Van Roten, OG, Carolina (3 years, $10.5mm) Josh Andrews, OG, Indianapolis (unknown yet) Breshad Perriman, WR, Tampa Bay (1 year, $8mm) Pierre Desir, CB, Indianapolis (1 year)   2020 Mock Draft 1/11 - CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma 2/48 - Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn   And with the 68th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the New York Jets select   John Hightower, WR, Boise State   @ColtsGermany with the Carolina Panthers is on the clock
