Is Ngakoue about to be free agent-cryptic tweet

Recommended Posts

i mean the Jags have like no money and a lot of players hate it there so not surprised he wants to leave and get paid and paid a lot. 
P.S Colts should take a run at him or Arik Armstead two fast big guys on the edge

Interesting.  Dave Caldwell their GM said recently that signing him should happen "relatively easily".  They have the franchise tag so this sort of makes no sense.

If he somehow doesn't get re-signed or tagged by the Jags, Ballard must get this guy a contract. He is a damn good player.

He has some more tweets that indicate he is leaving. One says don’t believe everything you hear. That could be referring to what the GM said. He also has one that says Master of my own fate. Seems he wants to leave.

Leverage, threats, honest..... who knows.

 

BTW, what is this character's character?

It would be very un-Ballard like, but I would love to see this guys as a Colt as long as he fits the culture of the team.

He wants 20+ million a year, he's not worth it. He only had about 8 sacks this year and was a major liability in the running game. No way would I touch him for 20 million, no way.. If the OT gets their hands on him it's over, so teams started just running right at him and it worked, he's been very ineffective..

They will at the very least franchise tag him so they wouldn't lose him as an asset. If he wants out you will have to trade for him most probably...

Would rather have Chris Jones if he somehow becomes available....sign Jones and possibly draft Kinlaw/Brown....D line becomes potentially scary there.

Love this. Our DL would be a terror if that happened.

Good post. Armistead is 6'7 290 and Nqawhatever is a runt 6'2 246. We already have 2 little ones.

So what is Robert saying?  If anything. 

He actually responded to that Mathis comment and said next chapter.  Mathis was seen talking to him on the sideline after the colts week 17 game.

I don’t get why people on this board seem to be enamored with Armstead... He has 19.5 sacks in his career and 10.5 of them were this year and with studs around him.  Hard pass...

Personally...   I hope Sheard is brought back, but NOT as a starter.   I think he’d be excellent as a quality backup and clubhouse leader where he excelled.  
 

Ballard likes having 10 dl’s on the roster.  I hope Sheard is one of them.

Sheard would be too expensive to bring back as a backup especially with the type of contract it would take to sign Yannick

Well...   a couple of points...    I think Sheard is only going to be offered back-up money,  so it might as well be ours.

 

Second...     there's no saying Yannick is going to be on the Colts,  so I still want Sheard as a backup.....

 

Third....       even if we sign Yannick, Ballard stil believes in 10 DL's,  and some are going to make decent money, so we should still be able to afford to sign Jabaal, no matter what happens.   A 20 mill per year contract still leaves the Colts with lots of money to spend.

 

Fourth....    if Sheard is offered starter money elsewhere,  good for him,  THEN we lose him.

This will be yet another year where we look at all of our cap space and think about grade A free agents only to sign C list players.

It just means that he's free.  So he's able to now sign a multi year deal with the Jags if they meet his demands, rather than being franchised.

 

We just spent 2 second rounders on EDGES to develop, and Houston is under contract.  He would not be a great investment considering how we just invested.

he was one of the best Dline in the league this year

 

some are calling it a breakout year, they might tag him

Sheard is still a starter in this league. I can't see him taking backup money

If Ballard signs Ngakoue or possibly a Chris Jones or Arik Armstead, and then drafts Javon Kinlaw, this DL would be nasty. If he wants to build his team like a San Fransisco, that would certainly expedite that effort.

You could be entirely correct.    I easily could be misreading his worth to other teams. 
 

I like the guy.   I think he has overall value to the team.   I just think his starting days are past him.  At least I hope so.   I want him back.   But as a backup.   We will find out in March...

Plus Sheard is still an elite edge setter. The run D improved greatly when he came back from injury.

Jones is who I want...even if it's a franchise and trade.

 

As for DEs...I would look at Clowney. Would step right in and replace Sheard.

Never fall into the trap of the breakout year, right before it’s time for a contract... it NEVER works out...

I doubt Jones gets out of KC.  I would love to have him, but let's be real.  If he leaves, they have NOBODY to stop the run, and they aren't good at it now.

 

I would echo sentiments here in adding DL both via the draft and in FA.  The foundations of franchises are built along the fronts.  We have built up the OL fairly well.  Now it's time to fix the DL.

    • Not trying to be argumentative but you simplifying this issue is not the reality of it all. Not only are there 53 players plus 10 practice squad players (90 in training camp) there are how many others around a NFL team? Doctors, trainers, coaches, assistant coaches, coordinators and whoever else. Just the sheer space need to keep social distance is impossible.  All of these people have families away from a locker room so it's not like they are going to be quarantined.  How about the mental aspect of the players? Can the players put all of this out of their thought process when their mindset has to be 100% about the game itself?  We are always reminded about distractions in the locker room and how it can have a negative effect.  IMO this goes much deeper than what can and can't be controlled.   
    • Its funny you say that.... I feel the same......   Strange times......
    • I would tend to agree   There is significant $$ moving around so I believe there will be a season of some sort.... maybe shortened.....   I think the NFL union may hold the players back from competing until there is a resolution or some protection.   We are seeing a crazy jump in new cases in Texas. (My daughter just tested positive   she is ok now)    If we are in mid August and the new cases in Covid starts to drop AND the death rates are dropping we may see a season.....   If not..... we may see a start in Oct......   Who knows....    
    • There is a big difference. After they all get initially tested the chances of it spreading among players is low. With the amount of times they will be tested and the fact none are going to even get in the facility with even a slight cough until they are tested the chances of it spreading is pretty small. Yes initially there will be some. I don’t even believe there are all these asystematic  cases. I think there are a lot of false positives. Which is why the nfl has a different protocol for them.
