Current Cap space


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know our current cap space? I wonder if Ballard has anything else up his sleeve. Particularly at TE, RG, and DB. I know we're looking at Delanie Walker which if we got him for a very cheap deal that would be a good signing on a one year deal.

We have $23m and some change.

 

If we cut JB and Hoyer, we would have around $35m.

 

If we cut Hoyer and trade Brissett before Monday, we will have $41-$42m.

 

That may be an indication of things to come in the next couple of days...an extra 18 million or so would be nice.

What did we have prior to all this recent activity?  Castonzo, rivers, Buckner?  Could have sworn it was closer to 100 mill.

Anyone think that Desir and Autry could be cap casualties? They would get us 6.8 and 5.7 respectively with no dead cap. I thought Autry was serviceable but Buckner would render him to be nothing more than a 50% snap player and Desir was bad and injured. Getting an extra 12 million could get us a full time starter at a position of need rather than a couple part time JAGS.

Based on Overthecap, Colts have ~ $21.6 M in cap space remaining. Trading Brissett would save ~ $15.8 M and cutting him would save ~ $8.9 M. Could also cut Hoyer now and save $3 M or designate him as a Post-June cut and save $4 M. Colts could potentially bring their cap space to between $32 M - $40 M.

It was before we gave Brissett the extension last year.

We really should look into WR targets. I like the Rivers move but right now our WR core consists of T.Y. Hilton and a lot of not impressive pieces.

 

I like what Zach Pascal showed last season, but I think he's more of a #3 than a #2. Maybe Parris Campbell can step into that role if he improves, but will he? Don't really know what to expect from him. Whole lot of unproven pieces behind Hilton.

I think we may wait to do anything with hoyer until after the draft. Just to make sure they get who they want. Not to mention if we do something with both of them before the draft that would be signaling we are taking a QB. Ballard May just pay Brissett that money and trade him after the draft.

I’d like to hear peoples opinions on this.

  I honestly like Autry and he’s definitely a good caliber player.

 

desir is a question mark. He was injured last season which could be a reason why he played poorly towards the end. But cutting him Would leave is very thin

We had just over 86M going into free agency. 25m cap hit on Rivers, just over 23m cap hit on Buckner, 17m cap hit on AC.  

Big contracts add up fast.

I would think we would be able to trade both, if they are wanting to shed those salaries.

Hoyer is not in our plans .  Bad news is, teams know that we either have to trade JB by Monday or suffer the larger cap hit. They’re gonna use that heavily in negotiating if there even are any ongoing

We may decide to just pay the bonus. It will Be easier to trade him too since a new team won’t be on the hook for it all. It doesn’t matter if they are in our plans. It’s about perception to not give away what we are going to do.

No one knows what Ballard will do even his he cuts both of them and Kelly today.

If those numbers are right, I really hope Ballard gets it done by Monday. 

The only issue I see with doing it so early is that we could be telegraphing our draft plans to the rest of the league.

I don't think Ballard is telegraphing any draft plans. 

At this point he has no concrete draft plans. The draft crew will have their draft board made up and any plans made will change as the draft proceeds. 

There is so many different things that can happen and probably will.

If any team is interested in JB I don't see them making a trade till they see what is going to happen with him. 

It's funny when you think about how most say JB is worth nothing but yet think he is worth something in a trade.

    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.       
    • The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor did it have Marvin Harrison or Bob Sanders, Dungy wasn't the Coach as well. It is 2006 hands down.
    • Probably 2005, that  team was loaded and then played a tragically bad game to the sixth seeded Steelers in the playoffs.    
    • In addition to some of the examples from @stitches:   - Was your offense restricted last season by having a less mobile QB? If so, in what ways? - Your offense was bottom third in play action attempts last season. Can you talk about how play action fits in your offense, and how it might be affected by the physical ability of the QB? - Your defense had some really good stretches, but was less effective against good QBing. (Example, short clock but long TD drives against the Bills/Packers, etc.) What will it take for the defense to take another step forward this season? - What will be Press Taylor's role on the staff? Will that differ from his role in Philly? - You went from a RB coach with decades of experience, to one who hasn't played or directly coached RBs so far. What went into that decision and what kind of impact might it have on the RB group? - At what positions do you think you most need improved playmaking? - How do you think the limited college season, no Combine, and restricted travel might impact prospect evaluation? - To what extent, if any, do you think being the primary play caller impacts your game management and decision making? - Do you still have weekly protection meetings like you did in 2018? How might those be impacted by the changes on the coaching staff?   Just saying, there's a lot of meat out there. Don't have to keep gnawing at the same bone.   Imagine this group trying to cover Gregg Popovich...
