We just got a 25-year-old All-Pro at a crucial position on the defense.    

Colts don't spend... We're losers.. Colts spend... Spent on Wrong guy... Colts trade... Don't like the trade.   Can't win with our fanbase.. Lol  

Couple thoughts on this:   1. This clearly signals that Colts will sign Phillip Rivers and/or draft a QB at 34. 2. Buckner was named an All-Pro last year at DT. He's a great player and

Love the player. Not too keen on the contract, but we have money so I get it. Hate losing a first without getting any other pick compensation back.

 

Not sure I like this much, but admittedly does make us better

I don’t like this at all. We needed to address pressing concerns with that pick. 

 

Not saying I like this move, but DT was a need

We just doubled the number of All-Pros on our defense.

Wow. CB wasn’t playing around about solidifying that D Front. 

No not at all. This guy plus Houston should be an instant upgrade to the DL

This tells me Ballard didn't like Brown or Kinlaw and he thinks he can get a QB at 34 rather that's Eason or Hurt

The amount that this will help Leonard and Walker can't be understated either.  Buckner will demand a double team.

Plus we get Turray back

Or he trades back up

You’re right , now that I think of it DL probably would have been the first pick anyways and we still have 2 second round picks.

I knew who Buckner was but never knew how good he really was.. guess a lot of y’all like it so I guess he’s pretty good!

No gurantee that either brown or kinlaw become all pro talent. Plust Buckener is only 25.

 

Passing on Love and possibly herbert might sting but the difference between them and Eason/Hurts/Fromm is probaly not as big in ballards opinion

Not digging it much. He’s been good but not second best to Aaron Donald good in his career. This is a lot of money/draft capital when we don’t have our QB. I reckon we could have gotten Chris Jones on his franchise tag for the same price for a better player.

Don't like this at all especially since we gave up our 13th overall pick. I would've thought we could've made this deal for 34. We could have gotten someone like Kinlaw or possibly even Brown on a cheaper contract than Buckner at 13. 

 

I think Ballard could have possibly gotten Chris Jones for a little less. This move seems a bit desperate to me. Now I think it's safe to say we all have very high expectations of Bucker making this DL great.

    • I know many might not agree but why not bring in Dak Prescott? In my opinion, if the Cowboys wanted to sign him long term they would've this past offseason. Ballard will have the cap space to sign him to a long term deal. The question is how much? I know many of people suggested Stafford or Wentz. But don't guys haven't stayed on the field recently. His playoff record is a small sample size and that 1-2 record could've been because of a multitude of things. I'm not going to put it all on Dak. Here are my reasons for Ballard to consider signing him.      1. He stays on the field: He's started all 16 games in his career      2. He wins: 41-25 career record since he came into the league.      3. A career 65% completion percentage. Working with Frank and this coaching staff that number would go up to 70%     4. He is mobile: We're seeing a transition in the Quarterback position. Most of the great Quarterbacks in this league Mahomes, Watson, Lamar, etc are mobile. Dak is very mobile, gets out of the pocket, and throws on the run.     
    • Glad we kept an extra LBer on roster.   Wonder who fills the roster spot?
