Clark, Tamme, Saturday And Stokley Could All Be In Denver


Recommended Posts

i dont think we want any of them back...

We have already stated that our goal is the SB but not this year. No reason to sign saturday if we are not SB contenders. We might as well release him and draft a center in the next year or 2 to play with Luck for his career like saturday did for manning.

Clark has shown he is declining and cannot run block.

Tamme has some skill as a receiving TE (but really not even that good at that) and also cannot run block.

I say we save our money for other needs.

That would nice nice - if they sign all those guys Denver just might be my #2 team. Heck if they happen to go 13-3 I'll just have to jump on that bandwagon LOL!

absolutely.....HAWK..

they dont play the Colts and we cant meet them until th e playoffs (okay...maybe we dont play them at all)

If we cant win this year..I want to see the NYGs and Denver in NOLA in the Super Bowl

But Kyle, we cant fill all our needs in the draft...we have too many

There isnt much tread left on the tires of Jeff Saturday. He's a bit undersized but was smart enough to overcome and just big enough to play in the NFL as a center. But with age comes loss of quickness and he definitely has lost a step. I don't think losing Saturday is that bad of a thing. I'd like to see a bigger center. Having said all that, I loved his work ethic and his smarts.

I think that things are shaping up nicely and we've already filled some of our needs. We can have a good draft and fill needs and add depth. If we unload Freeney's contract, then we can continue to fill more holes. But overall, I think we're in fairly good shape. We've added to the D-line, O-line, and added a safety. Now we're left looking for receivers, DB's and TE, with more depth at O-line and D-line. Not too bad. We can try to get this done through the draft, right?

Flash..

I'm all for trying...but we are bare bones at QB, TE and WR..we need 2 or 3 of each, right?

We look good defensvely if Freeney staysbut he must re-do the deal..

I'm nervous that we dont have many skill position players under contract on offense..

This has got to be one of the saddest days in the history of being a Colts fan. Im in shock. I know Peyton will play his butt off. Hopefully he wins another SB. I am so ticked that this organization couldnt win more than 1 SB with the greatest of all time QB. Irsay should have fired everyone 5 years ago and changed this stupid small ball c ap.

I doubt the Broncos bring in Tamme + Clark. It's one or the other. Stokley is almost a sure bet. Played with the Broncs, fans love him, and he's played with PM. If Saturday doesn't come back then he'll be there.

I think Jeff's been a little weird about this. It seems like the only place he wants to go is wherever PM is, and he doesn't seem like he wants to come back to the city that's help make his career. A little selfish, but I still love him.

Calling Jeff Saturday selfish? That's a very trashy statement on your part sir. The colts have destroyed almost all that they had and almost all of what Jeff Saturday had in Indianapolis. Now you think the colts deserve him to stay? I've got no words for that...

Sorry if this sounds harsh, but your comment at the end just frustrates me a lot...

Did Grigson make any attempt to get Saturday back for a 1 or 2 yr. deal that we know of? It would feel comforting to know Luck would have Wayne and Saturday for a start here.

If Saturday still wants to play, Chad72 is right, he has no offer from us. Nothing. How can he be faulted for wanting to play, and oh by the way, play with a QB he knows, a franchise that wants him and he might get back into the playoffs.

Loyalty has to run both ways, if Colts aren't showing it, then good for Jeff wherever he ends up. That's not selfish that's finding a place to continue your career when you aren't wanted where you are

I agree with your post 100% I feel the same applies to all our FA. They all want to play so go where you can further your career in my opinion. :thmsup:

Reportedly interested in signing free agents C Jeff Saturday and TE Jacob Tamme, the Broncos are being held up by stiff competition from other teams.

According to NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora the Seahawks are "very intent" on signing Tamme after losing John Carlson to the Vikings. With strong interest from the Packers and Titans, Saturday is weighing all three options rather than simply following Peyton Manning to Denver.

Come on Jeff - no way are you going to the Titans! Sign with the Broncos!

Is no one showing any love to Dallas Clark?

I think it comes down to Clark vs Tamme. Tamme is a younger guy who showed he can put up 'clark like' numbers and wasn't injured 2 years in a row like Clark.

I don't get it man. Clark > Tamme

Why has he gotten so little interest? Is it because he had a few drops last year or something?

it probably mostly has to do with last year and the year before im thinking. teams are either thinking hes too injury prone, or a product of peyton manning i guess

It has to be injury related, nothing else explains it. Maybe he never fully recovered from his wrist injury that ended his season in 2010??? Or he has some other injury we do not know about???

    • I'd say (at least since they moved to Indy) it'd be the 2005, 2006 or 2009 team.  The 2005 and 2009 teams had the best records (14-2) in regular season.  Unfortunately, the 2005 team was one and done in playoffs so hard to argue they were the best as they didn't even win a playoff game let alone make it to the SB.   I agree that Polian/Caldwell stopped the momentum by resting players in 2009.  I'll never forget Peyton standing on the sideline with his helmet on the rest of that game after they pulled starters, he looked absolutely furious.  Jeff Saturday said years later that his biggest regret as a player was not going for a perfect season in 2009.... the SB loss that year was a tough pill to swallow, the only thing I was happy about was New Orleans brought a title to their city so soon after Hurricane Katrina.   All that aside, the Colts failed to win the SB that year.  I think Dungy was a far superior coach to Caldwell.  We were without Marvin that year, Bob Sanders was on IR, etc.  With a pretty similar team the following year we went 10-6 and then without Peyton the next year we went 2-14 and it was exposed that our roster was actually pretty weak without stud QB play.  The more I think about it, the more I wonder if 2009 was more Peyton being a hero than the Colts having a very great team from top to bottom.     I go back and forth on this, but thinking the 2006 group may be a bit better of an overall team.  They were unbeaten at home and sealed the deal with a SB win.  While Bob Sanders only played 4 regular season games, he was back for the playoffs and the defense only gave up 73.3 yards rushing per game in that run against some pretty darn good teams.  We had a better OL (Tarik Glenn at LT instead of Charlie Johnson in  2009).  And we had a better WR corps with both Marv and Reggie than we did in 2009 with Reggie and Garcon.  I think you could argue the RB duo of Addai (1081 yards) and Rhodes (641 yards) was as good or better in 2006 than Addai (828 yards) and D. Brown (281 yards) in 2009.   I think our defense was better overall in 2006 than it was in 2009 (especially come playoff time when Sanders was back) and that we had a better head coach in Dungy than we did with Caldwell.  Going position by position (or positional group by group), I think the only position where the 2009 team was clearly better than 2006 is punter (McAfee > Hunter Smith).     I know the 2009 team had more pro-bowlers and all-pros, but I'm not sure if they were overall better than 2006.  The 2009 team had 3 first-team all-pros (Clark, Freeney, Manning) and 1 2nd team (Wayne) along with 7 probowlers (Wayne, Freeney, Manning, Saturday, Clark, Mathis, Bethea).  The 2006 team had 1 first-team all pro (Marv) and two 2nd team all pros (Manning, Saturday) along with 5 pro bowlers (Saturday, Manning, Marv, Reggie, T. Glenn).  So there is some argument there, but we had all the players who made pro-bowl in 2009 on the 2006 team (and 2006 we had Marv, Glenn, and at least at play off time we had a healthy Bob Sanders).      
    • IMO, to find that, realistically we'll have to draft it, and early. I don't see us paying for young elite DE given Buckner's contract already, and some of the other areas of need. We'll either go with solid vets or drafts. 
    • What is driving you to write all these disparaging comments? It almost seems personal. He does not play for your team. He has not committed a crime. What is it?
    • I don't think he would lie about it.   My hope is that, even he wouldn't. That's what I am hoping to hear. Whatever he says will be the truth though, I don't doubt that.
    • If he says no he would be lying... I'll get my popcorn
