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?

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

Yes I think he has it covered. 

He shot Clowney a number. It's in Clowneys yard now. 

IMO it would be nice to sign Clowney but will it cost too much. I highly doubt I am the only one who had that thought. I agree it might be time to swing for the fence, who knows?

I think it takes another week or two of limited contact before Clowney realizes his value is far lower than he thinks. I’m not sure if teams leave it alone but Ballard could sit and wait with a 15mil/year offer. Maybe just a 1 or 2 year deal when it’s all done. I think this is what teams are looking at for him.

He’s been overrated since he was drafted really.

If the Colts didn't have anyone else on the DLine to account for I could see them passing on him. But now they have TWO players that have to be accounted for. This would free things up for Clowney to have many one on ones.

Well, he IS overrated based on his draft hype, but that doesn't mean he's totally ineffective.

He DOES need to be accounted for, but it seems teams manage to handle it for the most part.

It is also true that, due to our present talent, it could free him up to be more effective, and in turn allows them all to be more effective.

 

I do have to say, thought, that it appears the most effective game plan against Clowney is a hard count on 3rd and 5 or less. He's seemingly quite the sucker for it.

I hate when he jumps offsides. Yes!

Yeah not sure how legit he is but the moves the Colts have made do point to something brewing.

 

Yea, but you think we would have heard something by now

If the deal is reasonable, in terms of money or us getting rid of him after a bad year I'm all on board. Houston, Buckner and Clowney on the dline would have me SUPER EXCITED. 

Would benefit Okereke and Leonard as well, not to mention the back end.

 

I understand why people don't like Clowney, he hasn't lived up to the massive expectations he came into the league with. Same as Luck, kinda. But make no mistake, Clowney is a really really solid player, probably the best edge player against the run and he does disrupt a lot. I say we give this a chance while we have the cap.

I completely agree. That being said, on a short reasonably priced deal I would like to see him add to our d-line. Could become scary good.

The Seahawks and Giants are both really up against the cap.  So this is getting interesting.  I also read a report where the Seahawks were also taking a look at Griffin as a fall back.   It certainly looks like the Colts are not making any more moves until they know here he signs.  JMO.

Exactly...would love to have him at DE.

 

To prove your point...here is a quote from our own Frank Reich before the IND/HOU WC game:

 

"Some teams have a philosophy of stop the run on your way to rushing the quarterback: penetrate, penetrate, penetrate, and then stop the run through causing disruption," Colts coach Frank Reich said. "Players like Clowney can do that. He's very disruptive.

 

"He's a playmaker and can do it from outside, can do it from inside and you have to account for him no matter where he lines up."

Just saw a blurb on NFL Network with Ian Rapoport. He was saying Clowney won't mind waiting until the right deal. Sounds like this could go on a little bit.

The flip side is the teams he's talking to might lose patience and move on.  Reportedly the Titans have dropped out.  He might not get the deal he wants but he should get a nice deal regardless.  It appears there are only a few teams that want him who can afford to pay him a good contract.  If I were him I would make a decision sooner rather than later before those teams make a decision he won't like.

I hope it happens as well. I prefer him over Everson Griffin due to age, premium size and length, as well as him being very good against the run. We need somebody who can play the run as well as rush the passer. Our division is full of teams that like to run. Some of the top rushing teams in the league.

Ive followed Dan for awhile. He’s a big Colts fan. Just think speculation here. He doesn’t have inside sources....to my knowledge anyways.

I dont know if hes a target and havent looked to be honest

Markus golden had ten sacks and is 29. Doesnt  look like giants plan to resign him either. He may be an option  if clowney doesn't  sign

For me the end of the week is very generous.  This has been going on for quite some time now.  I would give him until 6PM today or we are done.  Time to settle this once and for all.

You may be right....  But.... I used to give people time to make a decision if they were moving themselves and family if applicable for employ at companies I worked with....

To be fair...it's only been 6 days since the start of FA. Last year, Houston signed on the 8th day of FA.

    • Not MPJ...but if they somehow valued Campbell in place of a Day 2 pick...see ya.
    • From this morning Jan. 26th, 2021   ESPN's Rob Demovsky said Packers backup QB Tim Boyle "would be more suited" than Jordan Love to start in 2021 if Aaron Rodgers is traded or retires this offseason.  In other words, the Packers would be in bad spot if Rodgers isn't in green and yellow next season. Demovsky said "nothing [Love] has shown, at least publicly, would suggest" he's ready to replace Rodgers a year after the Packers inexplicably drafted Love in the first round. Packers beat writers have written extensively since last summer that Love is an erratic passer who appears over his head in Green Bay's offense. "Love has struggled with accuracy -- in the drill where quarterbacks throw to a stationary target (usually a net) and to players running routes on air (without a defender)," Demovsky said. He suggested the team's best course might be to trade Love, like the Patriots did with Jimmy Garoppolo when Tom Brady was unhappy about New England drafting his successor. That Love isn't locked in as Green Bay's starter post-Rodgers is an indictment of the entire organization.    Enjoy!!
    • Stafford has a 32 million cap hit for next year. Where are you getting 20 from?
    • Albert Breer on Stafford:   The Lions are doing the right thing. I view Detroit's situation with Matthew Stafford as significantly different than where the Texans are with Deshaun Watson (we’ll get to that one below). Stafford approached owner Sheila Ford Hamp and team president Rod Wood right after the season ended and more or less asked for a fresh start. It’s understandable. Matt Patricia was the third head coach fired in his 12 years as a Lion, and he’s played for four offensive coordinators, six quarterbacks coaches, two team presidents and three controlling owners. In that time, he’s made the playoffs three times. So as he saw it, it was time. The Lions asked him to wait for a new GM and coach to be selected. He agreed. The candidates who came through knew a Stafford trade was in play, and Holmes, Campbell and Wood called him this week to tell the quarterback that they’d field offers. Which really does make this a mutual agreement to part ways. I love Stafford as a player. I also understand why the Lions would agree to this. The roster needs work—and it’ll probably take a couple of years to get it where Holmes and Campbell want it. Having an unhappy quarterback beaten down by years of losing as the face of that project really isn’t what anyone is looking for. So dealing Stafford gives the Lions a shot to build from the ground up, with a top-10 pick to go fishing for his replacement and a chance to get a good return while his value is still high. As for a team bringing him in? One former Stafford coach told me Saturday, “He’s very underrated. Toughness, intelligence, arm talent, all of it’s at a very high level. He’s elite. He really is.” He’s also under contract for the next two years at $43 million (a very affordable rate) and doesn’t turn 33 until next month. It sure looks, on the surface, like the Lions should be able to get a first-rounder and something else for him. But depending on what teams like the Texans, Falcons, Rams, Raiders and Niners decide to do, the market might be a little clogged at the position, which could create a bargain for someone.   Indianapolis seems like the natural landing spot for Stafford. The question, then, becomes whether GM Chris Ballard and coach Frank Reich would see Stafford as a Band-Aid or more than that. The team went with a Band-Aid last year, in Rivers, after taking a shot with Jacoby Brissett in 2019 (and that was after Jimmy Garoppolo’s name briefly came up in the DeForest Buckner trade talks with San Francisco). Might they want to fix the position once and for all? I think that would be preferable. You could point to the Buckner trade as an example of Ballard being aggressive in the way he’d have to be on Stafford—but Buckner’s 26 and a definite long-term cornerstone. My guess would be that is what Ballard’s looking for. Maybe Stafford is that. Or maybe a big move up in the draft gets him there. Remember, Ballard was part of the vetting of Mahomes in Kansas City and saw the benefit of going all in on a young player at the position and dropping him into a readymade situation. Only he knows if there’s a quarterback in this year’s draft class that he sees like the Chiefs’ folks saw Mahomes in 2017. But if there is one, I’d bet he wouldn’t be scared to move way up the draft board, get a cost-controlled young passer and use the leftover cap space to start paying the guys they’ve been building around (like Quenton Nelson and Darius Leonard).   The bolded parts are my own emphasis. First is Breer's thoughts on compensation. Good point that if other teams make moves for other players -- Pats/Garappolo, for instance -- maybe it drops the final ask on Stafford a little bit.   Second, Breer says Garappolo came up in talks between the Colts and Niners last year, while they were working on the Buckner deal. That's new to me, and might be something to look out for.
