According to that Pro Football411 Twitter... Clowney and Seattle are closing in on a deal.

Is that a worthwhile twitter handle? Haven’t followed or heard anything from them before.

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?

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.

There was more than one team that was trying to work out a deal with Justin Houston last year.  I remember we were almost sure he was going to the Steelers but he wound up signing here.  I do realize there is a difference in their ages though.  We'll see if Ballard can scoop him up.

We can only hope.  The silence is deafening now.

Or good, because if he was closing in on a deal with Seattle and we haven't heard its done. All while we free up $10m in additional space(Hoyer, Desir) in same time period.

 

Just cant fathom that dline:

Houston, Buckner, Clowney

Turay, Autry, Banogu, Muhammad, Lewis, Stewart

 

Damn, teams would not want to play us.

 

If we could bring in Harris/ or Suh for 1 yr deal. WoW.

 

Or draft a guy in 2nd-4th..

What would be y'alls dollar cut off? It's been reported that seattle offered $18.5 M.

That reported offer has been out there for a long time now.  Seems close enough to the 20M he was looking for.  Maybe that offer is incorrect.  We will see.

They said they offered him 18.5 mil and Clowney is looking for 20.

So let me get this straight. He cries about getting tagged at 19.5 million a year, demands that he won't be tagged for 2020, so now his offer is a 1 year 13 million? Bet he wished he was tagged again this year, much like Gordon and Bell before him..

This could be the day we find out on the Clowney front.  I just read where The Seahawks have only 20M in cap space left.  That makes that reported 18.5M offer somewhat unbelievable.  If he signs with the Titans he goes against our OL twice.  If he signs with the Colts he goes against an average OL in the Titans who just lost a key lineman in Conklin.  With our addition of Bruckner you would think he would have a chance of greater and higher production with the Colts.  Money wise I think the Colts will be competitive.  We might even have the highest offer on the table.  I can't wait to find out where he is going.  Hopefully today and to the Colts.

There you have it.  I thought we might have the highest offer.  I'm biased if course but if I were him I would take the Colts offer and join that DL.  I actually think we are the better team overall as well.

Hopefully the Colts feeling like Clowney is "leaning toward Titans" is more posturing on Clowney's part than anything.  

I wonder what plan B is.  Trade for Yannick?  Sheard again?

I would rather just let Turay start if we can't get Clowney

I think he may not be crazy about Indianapolis tbh.  It's not like the colts are clearly better than titans or Seahawks either

He might not want to share the spotlight with Houston and Buckner.

Seahawks and titans don't exactly have pass rushers to take attention away from Clowney especially since the Titans traded Casey. Clowney was getting double teamed a lot in Seattle. Atleast we can offer him single blocks because you're not single blocking Buckner or Houston

That's why the Colts make more sense.  He will get fewer double teams if any.

Go with the Colts offer bro. You got less chance of playoffs if you stay with Seattle. Titans have improved but do you really trust Tannehill to do it again? Get with Indy and that gives you two elite lines and much more. Plus you get to play indoors most of the year on the turf. Great for pass rushers. Did i mention being coached by Robert Mathis?

I am a daily lurker and rarely post, but this is an underrated post, Krunk! Indy gives him an opportunity to shine where he does best as a consistent player and run stopper, while simultaneously allowing him an opportunity to rush the passer he wont have elsewhere with Houston and Buckner...

 

He fits the colts perfectly. With our push to reach the upper echelon of the NFL now, this is a mutually beneficial arrangement. Let’s make it happen!

And you wouldn't have to face this twice a year...

Yes signing Clowney sounds appealing but what ramifications would it have on our cap space and the ability to add depth?

Don't you think Ballard has figured that all out?  That is his job.  I think he has a plan.

    • The covid IR rules are helping this team a ton. Imagine if they were the old IR rules. We would of had to cut some players because guys like Burton would not of went on IR. I hope they keep some of these rules because teams can keep more of their players instead of having to cut them.
    • Yep. He was loved by every analyst too as a single high FS, and looked good his first year with the Colts. He'll be a bargain for someone IMO if he can stay healthy.    What's also weird though, is that Flus hinted that he wanted to play more man last year. Aside from the KC game, didn't seem like it happened much. And we drafted both Rock and Blackmon from heavy man systems. I think Willis was too. I just don't understand to be honest what Flus is really all about yes. Was he waiting to get a 3T and pressure up front to go more man? He has that now. And if not, not sure I understand Ballard's draft choices as they seem to be converse to Flus's scheme.
    • With his injury history, I doubt there are going to be many teams out there offering to dish out money like he'd be a guaranteed starter, and I would doubt many teams are going to be throwing long-term deals at him.  He has to prove he can stay healthy for a 16 game season, something he hasn't done in 4 years (7 games, 14 games, 13 games, <2 games).     So, it wouldn't be too surprising (IMO) if Ballard offered him a 1 year deal with a low guarantee and some incentives built in... but he probably knows he's a better fit in a different scheme and can get a similar deal elsewhere where he's more suited to play.     It will be interesting... if JT/Wilkins/Hines prove they're a formidable trio, where would Mack fit in the puzzle if he came back to Indy next year... I'd think he'd be able to go elsewhere, get offered more $ and have a better chance to get more carries.  I could be wrong, but my sense is that JT is going to establish himself a true #1 RB in this league before this year ends.  I understand his wear may be an issue considering how many miles he put on in college, but so far (in limited time) Wilkins has shown he can be a solid supplement to him.  Mack has already shown the league he can be an upper-level back in the NFL, so I don't think he'll have too much trouble finding $ if he is passing all his physicals and looking good in his workouts.     TJ Green or Laron Landry... I don't think Hooker is even close to either of those guys.  Hooker produced in college, he was producing very well (being talked about DROY) as a rookie before he got hurt.  He hasn't been a bad football player here.  He doesn't get thrown at much.  He's playing a scheme that isn't entirely suited to his skill set... but he has shown he can play.  TJ Green was a raw guy who didn't produce near the level as Hooker did in college and never showed anything in the NFL (another Grigs bust) and Landry was a roided out freak who was shown the door by the league because he couldn't pass PED tests.   Hooker, if he can stay healthy, can play in this league.  That is his major concern, is his health... he is an above average football player who could be very good if he's in the right system.     Yes, that was a weird scenario all around.  Ballard, keep in mind, didn't get to choose his coach.  He was basically stuck with Pagano.  Ballard knew what scheme he wanted to run on D, which was different than Pagano.  Pagano was talking about Hooker as 'the next Ed Reed' (who played under Pagano when he was a DC in Baltimore).  Hooker really fit the Pagano mold.  I would not be shocked, if Pagano is still in a defensive coordinator position going into next year that Hooker went to whatever team Pagano was affiliated with, TBH.  
    • Agreed.  He came to the Colts to play with Luck, make a lot of stats, win a lot of games, and make a lot of money.  When Luck quit, and he had to play with Brissett, none of those things were going to happen anymore, and he knew it.  The light just went out of his eyes, and he didn't really care to be here anymore.
    • I can absolutely see the loss costing us positioning in the playoffs. Hopefully it was just rust (execution and game plan) and we'll start to roll. There really is no making up for a loss to a team ranked 32nd (at the time). It is what it is, and you just got to move on. Perhaps beating TN on the road might make up for, but honestly TN doesn't look all that great right now, and I already thought we'd fair well against them.   As far as the whole O vs D thing, simply put, they are symbiotic. A good D helps the offense by giving them opportunity and field position. A good O helps the D by keeping them off the field.
