I would not be in favor of signing him to The Colts. This has nothing to do with his kneeling or social justice work; I just don't think he's the right kind of QB for our scheme.
Personally I think he was a decent QB in the right system, but he doesn't seem to me to be the type of QB that can thrive in any system, and more specifically ours. Add to this the fact that he has not played for several years and it's a hard pass for me.
I, unlike others, wish him no ill will, and hope he is successful & happy in life. However I think our QB room is better without him.
My thought is that enough time had passed - prior to the George Floyd incident - that he would have been brought onboard if he actually had better talent than those already in the league and those who would come cheaper. That's my .02 without making this too political. There have been other talents in the league with marks against them that have been added to rosters because their talent was worth the bad press. I would suspect that having the best talent on the roster is the highest priority to some owners - regardless getting some bad views from the press or the fans.
I like our QB room right now. No need to add Kaep.
This past week the nation has been engulfed with the tragic death of George Floyd. Sportscaster has reminded us all about the stand that Colin Kaepernick did in kneeling as a reminder that Black Lives Matter. He has been "black listed" by all the NFL owners ever since. The sportscasters are placing this in front of all sportscasters, players and citizens. As a Colt fan, I think Colin Kaepernick would be a solid 3rd QB. What do you think?
I’d love to have Clowney.... and I’m a big believer in the high character players the Colts have targeted recently. But with the uncertainty over what the salary cap will look like next year, and the multiple free agents the Colts need to sign, it makes sense to be cautious. If they could get him on a one year affordable deal, heck yeah. But I suspect Clowney will hold out for a better deal than that....which is why Clowney and the Colts are not the best fit. Gonna have to roll with J. Houston and the kids.
