This is so true.

 

 

 

I don't buy Rivers at all coming to the Colts.  He moved to Florida and has like 9 kids.  Very strong family man

The key line is the last line....

 

Don’t take the rumors too seriously.   Some may be true, but most likely won’t be....

 

As I wrote in another post this week,  at this time of year it’s good to be a little skeptical...

Ballard said he explores every route. So yes he could be exploring and thinking about it. Doesn’t mean much.

Not sure what Irsay will have to pay JB in cash beginning with the new league year, and through next season, but it could be a wash if he paid Rivers the same cash he would have paid JB.  The only issue would be the salary cap implications, and the Colts have plenty of room to handle it.

 

On the 3rd day of the 2020 league year, Brissett will earn a $7 million roster bonus, which became guaranteed on September 6, 2019.  Brissett can also earn another $2 million ($146,00 per game active) in roster bonuses. While a Colt, he will also an additional 6 million in base salary, and another million in other bonus.

 

If he is cut  before June 1, JB will only get the 7 million noted above, but the dead cap on the Colts books will be 12.5 million with only a net 9 million dollars in cap savings. If he is traded before June 1, the Colts dead cap is only $5.5 million. But that means the other team that traded for him has to pay him $16 million.  I'm fairly sure that won't happen, and Colts might have to eat some of that as part of a trade deal.

    • Is this a joke? Lol Gates is as washed as they come. He can barely run anymore, strong pass. I’d take Walker over him.
    • More than me enjoying...  I know YOU enjoy them.   As for April, what happens is more info leaks out.   Clearly some of that (most if that?) is a smoke screen.   But sometimes good info gets out.   About guys like Mixon and Sweet and the big Miss State DL grabbed by Tennessee.  That information is always helpful.  Just things to keep an eye out for....   The key is having fun and don’t box yourself in!  
    • I just don't feel like anything changes come April. You know what the remaining needs are for the colts and where prospects were most likely land.   Strange. Draft calculate said it was equal value.    I mentioned Higgins can be a reach, but the draft is unpredictable. More teams go after Ts then IOL and there are a lot of good Ts in this draft. It's either Hurts or Gordon. I'm just not a fan of the other QBs and I feel we can still use his level of athletism instead of just having the QB ride the bench. Oline depth is a big need. We really don't have options if god forbid someone on the line gets hurt. Breeland is still a good option and we still have Doyle and Allie-Cox   Glad you enjoy my Mocks!
    • There is an Antonio Gates article in Yahoo Sports, says in considered signing with the Colts in 2019.  I know his age is up there, 39, will be 40 at the start of the season.  It mentioned that he has retired mindset but maybe Ballard and Rivers can sway him to give it one more year.  With the Rivers to Gates was one the best connections.  He could be a valuable 3rd receiver for the Colts and Rivers.  I think drafting a TE in the 2nd or 3rd round should be considered as well.
