Dont care what you say, no one does a game plan and says "We aint worried about Clowney". No matter how over rated one thinks he is

On a one year deal?   With money we can afford?      And not have to cut players we really want to keep to do it?   Yes,  I'd do that....     for one year,  I see far more upside t

To me that reads that the Titans want to bring back Ryan if they can’t sign Clowney. Not that Clowney wants them to sign Ryan before he will sign. Am I reading it wrong?

On a one year deal?

 

With money we can afford?      And not have to cut players we really want to keep to do it?

 

Yes,  I'd do that....     for one year,  I see far more upside than downside.

 

JC would get to re-establish his market value.     The one year would keep him highly motivated.

With no first round pick, the money needed to sign rookies will

be significantly less

 

Hoyer has got to go 

 

Clooney is a great run stopper that gets needed pressures

 

It would be tight to pull off on cash... but the guy would improve our defense

 

put me down as yes

By making the trade for Buckner and signing Rivers for one year the colts need to be all in going for the super bowl now. Ballard go get Clowney and make this defense great

 

 

Clowney is more of a run stopping DT than he is a pass rusher. He wants to be paid like a pass rusher but in reality he's not a pass rusher. He was next to last in every pass rushing statistic in 2019 but he was graded one of the highest defensive lineman at stopping the run. Plug him next to Buck and he will eat running backs alive.

1 year deals eat the cap. If you want him for 2 years you sign him for 4. 4 year 100 million with 40 million guaranteed. The first two years would be 15 million each, fully guaranteed with 10 million left guaranteed..

Not at $20M per.  I'd wait it out a little while and see if anybody is that stupid.  If not, then come in at like 2-years and $30M.  Throw in some incentives like 10 sacks, ProBowl, etc. where he could earn 3-5M more.  See if he would accept that.  If so, I'm all in.

I feel this signing would really affect the amount of playtime for Turay and Banogu. I believe this is Turay's year to break out and I think he'll definitely be a better player than Clowney, who to me is evidently one of the most over rated pass rushers in the entire NFL. I don't care how much pressures he got last year(I don't know if he got very much, just saying this in case he did), he only got I think 3 sacks. That is utterly terrible for a guy who wants 20 mil a year. I don't care that he got 2 TDs, when you sign a pass rusher you expect him to get sacks and he hasn't had a year over 10.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but the defense doesn't need Clowney.  Turay is still early in his rookie contract and Houston isn't out of gas yet.  

 

Signing 2 big defender contracts in the same year could also create some cap logistics issues.

 

Now that Rivers is in the house there's another pick that may be spent on a defender instead of a QB in the draft.

He would be Sheards replacement. He is a excellent run stopper with more distruptive power then Sheard.  Plus he is four years younger.

It makes sense because that would mean we let Sheard go. This would be his younger replacement.

If this happens I can see Ballard going after the best CB he can get in the draft, especially after the Desir release.    This D is so close to being elite.

It would be cool, but Ballard seldom get those where a bidding war is going on. I would be highly surprised if he ends here with two other suitors.

We shall see

Clowney is only being offered 13m by the seahawks and he is open to a one year deal. If the colts could get him for that it would be worth it.

Where are you getting this?  It is being reported that the Seahawks offer is believed to be at $18.5 million per year.

If this happens, which I hope it does. 2 things I think.  

 

1. With the Rivers signing and the Bucker signing the Colts believe they can win it all this yr and are going all in.  I think this was the yr if Andrew stayed as well.

 

2. We will not be drafting for the future but for the here and now and it could mean that need will outweigh BPA in this draft.

 

 

We could do what 9ers did last yr and go from bottom to top in one yr.

    • In reality they are probably right to point out that most GMs in the league don't have long enough track record to be free of small sample bias one way or the other. It's very likely if you gave every GM 100 drafts, their draft success will tend to converge toward the average. BTW, I wonder where Grigson would be on those graphs. I would guess pretty high thanks to drafting Luck and TY Hilton(similar to HOU in this graph thanks to Deshaun Watson). Just another reminder that even though those graphs might be useful in some cases you have to keep in mind their limitations and biases.
    • Doug...  these anti-Watson rants have gone from bad to worse.   Other posters here have noted you make it sound personal.   You have mischaracterized most everything that has happened.   Watson has a lot of support around the NFL.   I’d say far more support than dont.   I don’t pretend to know how this is going to finish?   But I hope you can lower the temperature here...   I don’t think it’s helpful.   Just my two cents...     
    • Yeah, if Miller or Haeg had the WHOLE resume and the talent of Godwin maybe we should. Worth pointing out that this was probably the worst stretch of Godwin's career (and it was mainly thanks to drops). I think he had like 7 drops in the playoffs while never having more than 2 in a whole season previously. I would personally consider that a freaky happenstance, and trust the much bigger sample of him being a very reliable catcher of the football. Also, it's not me that's taken it here. YOU just did.   I've already pointed out several times that this is NOT my 'take', but rather a guess on part of the explanation on the Bucs place in those graphs. So why do you keep going with this? At this point I am considering this bad faith exchange on your part. On the second part - yes, it would have to be taken in consideration(if they were up for trade and tied in similar contracts, rather than Godwin being a FA). BTW Godwin is one of the players we should consider breaking Ballard's bank on this FA. Insert Whynothaveboth.gif Agree with this. Evans is both better and more valuable than Godwin. Worth pointing out that both Superbowl teams had premier pass catching weapons as it relates to our discussion on the value of the position.  
    • Without contact?   I don’t think that’s true.   His knee injury this year was a helmet to his knee while his foot was planted.   He had 3-4 injuries his rookie year, I think only the foot injury was non contact.     Campbell had no significant injuries in college.  Think he played 38-39 games in three years.  
    • I haven't payed a lot of attention to CBs yet, but Trill seems to check almost all of the boxes for what we look for in a corner (haven't seen any arm length figures yet, but length is a common positive I've seen for him, so im3 assuming he hits the marks). I'm really intrigued and need to check out some more film of him.
