Buckner/Clowney/Houston/Sheard with Autry rotation. 
 

Man. This line can be scary good. 

Sheard isnt here anymore. Banogu and Turay would be the reserve ends

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?

Have the Colts announced that they aren’t going to resign him?

No. Free Agent looking for a team. I wont be surprised to see him back if we get in a pinch though.

I'd like to see Sheard back but if there is any truth to the Clowney rumors, someone has to go and Sheard would be the most likely IMO.....simply because of the $. He's still a quality player.

So according to this article he reportedly turned down an annual deal of 17M from the Dolphins.  Why?  My guess is he wants to play for a contender and that's important for him right now.  Still holding out for the money and the right team.  I think his best chance at both is with the Colts.  I hope he thinks so too.  I can't believe we are that far apart.

Clowney is apparently holding out on Titans deal hoping they bring back Logan Ryan?

 

Can they afford both?

I have to admit I was wrong about the Colts being involved. 

Personally I think he is holding out for money, not necessarily the right team.

It's not my money so I don't care how much it costs.  Sign the guy let win the SB!

 

I never care how much we pay for players.  The Colts pay people to figure it out that are way smarter than me.

Shelby Harris re-signs for 2.5 million with Broncos.

 

That’s a joke, for 49 tackles, 6 sacks last season. Would have been worth 4-5 million easily, even if it’s a contract year phenom.

This dude is gonna end up signing a 1 year deal worth like 12m when all is said and done

I agree ... people are aligning their cap and spending the FA money

 

Time to move on.....

 

I wouldn’t want a 1 year Clowney deal (my spell check keeps changing this to Clooney ... :()

Well he's only hurting himself there if true.

He better hurry up.  Teams with cap are still spending but it won't last forever.  Every day that goes by is working against him.  His agent should know that.

Just saw on NFL live today that Clowney has dropped his asking price to 17-18M from 20M.  Titans have been in touch with his agent to monitor the development.  

He's going to have a hard time getting that much too.

If he signs for around 15 mil per season, I wouldn't mind the Colts showing interest for a 1-2 year deal. Could make this DL ferocious. 

My guess is that the offers he already received were in the 15m range.  This is his attempt to nudge them higher.  I wouldn't be surprised if he signs by the weekend now.

That's about what he's worth, IMO.

I think that has finally set in.  I think he's ready to sign.  A team just needs to increase their offer.  Ballard usually draws his line in the sand so if he did it would surprise me.  But he's trying to win now so you never know.

Not sure what our current cap is after signing Rhodes, Day, and Carrie, however we could release Autry if needed to create cap space. It would save us 5 mil

If there was ever a time to acquire such a versatile, pro-bowl level talent, on the d-line without investing any draft capital this is the moment.  He will probably be resigned to accepting a deal in the 17.5 per year range but will ultimately settle on the most guaranteed salary.  4/70m 38 guaranteed should suffice.

without Carrie and Rhodes

 

Total Cap Liabilities: $224,463,862

Top 51: $202,326,535

 

Team Cap Space: $26,823,488

 

Offense: $133,992,516

Defense: $76,197,663

Special: $3,525,000

 

Carrie IIRC signed for league vet min (0.91M)

Rhodes IIRC 5M

 

So now should have around 20.8M

Yea we'd have to release Autry if we're even interested. Maybe even move Wilson for a 6th or 7th to free up another 1.5 mil

Potential cuts and savings per OTC

Autry 5.7

JB 8.9

Muhammad 2.1

Wilson 1.3

Lewis 0.6

 

We'll probably drop either Franklin or Adams with Oke taking over SAM, so that .7M

Ballard : You can't buy a locker room

 

Colt fans : Bring in a guy who turns down 17M/year.

Ballard just bought Juice for 25M and Buck for 24M

I doubt Adams and Franklin. Their our best STs. Muhammad makes sense

IDK. I have a feeling Speed will bump one of them. Franklin played 0 snaps on D, and I just don't know if they're going to keep someone on the 53 they know is purely a STs guy (and not a returner), on top of a 3rd SAM (a position we don't use a lot anyway). We're going to be adding draft picks to the roster, and just not sure he'll survive.

    • Some more miscellaneous thoughts to share.   You're so convinced Reich is terrible.    You always cite what happened with him in San Diego.   Funny how you give him no credit for what happened with him in Philadelphia.   If memory serves, the Eagles recently won that big game at the end of the year.   What do they call that?    Oh, yes.    The Super Bowl.    You give Frank no credit for that.   Why?    Because it destroys your argument.   That's what you do,  you play up anything that supports you,  while either playing down or ignoring anything that hurts your argument.    You think Frank is what he is.   You give him no credit for 2018 because you didn't like one game,  the last game of the year.    So you act like the rest of the season didn't happen.    Players, and even coaches can improve over time,  given better players and better opportunities.   Pete Carroll was a poor NFL coach, having been fired at his first two HC jobs.   But his run at USC was so great,  he earned another shot.   Did you know his first two years in Seattle were 7-9?   Wasn't until his third years when the Seahawks became great.   And he's been a great coach there ever since,  9 years.    How did that happen?      Andy Reid had a reputation as the best coach never to win the big game for more than 2 decades.  Then he won the Super Bowl.   How'd that happen?    Oh, he got much better players!    Who knew?   Sean Payton was a great coach and then went 7-9 three straight years.    Did he become bad overnight?    No,  the Saints front office put them in terrible Salary Cap Hell for those three years.  Funny how he got smart again once the salary cap issues went away and they drafted better.   Mike McCarthy was a very good coach in GB.   Won a Super Bowl.   Now they're calling for his head in Dallas in his first year as the Cowboys have been destroyed by a ton of key injuries including the loss of three starting OL.   And now Dak.   He didn't get dumb overnight.    There have been issues out of his control.   Sometimes stuff like that happens.    Heck, Bill Belichick is suddenly mortal now that Tom Brady is gone and he's got Cam Newton.   Kyle Shannahan and Sean McVay were the two hottest OC's in the NFL a few years ago.   As the OC,  Shannahan blew the last few minutes of a Super Bowl his team should have won.   Now he's the HC in San Fran,  and he blew the 4th quarter of the SB against KC.    For one of the better offensive minds,  Shannahan is 0-2 in the 4th quarter of the two biggest games of his career.    And McVay has struggled these past few years as the team has shed talent due to salary cap issues.   But he too got out coached in the SB.    Apparently football is hard.   It's much more than a bunch of stats.   Even Next Gen Stats.   My point,  even the best minds have trouble from time to time.   People who know football understand this.   People who only know stats,  well,  don't.   If you're willing to accept my "likes",  then you have to be willing to accept my lesser emoji's as well.    You can't have it your way all the time.   Oh....    one last thought....    I've posted this repeatedly,  but you seem to have missed it.   I'm not posting very much this year because I can't see the games.    I won't go to a sports bar to watch until we're past Covid.   I'm hoping for 2022.   I think '21 is still doubtful.    So, I'm only seeing maybe 15-25 percent of the snaps on the NFL Network and the Red Zone.  With that little viewing,  I don't have much to add.    I read what I can in the media and here on this website.   But since I don't care as much about this season as most here,  I thought it would be better if I posted less.    Yeah....  I miss you too!  
    • This is good and all, but can he play Magic the Gathering?
    • Most, but not all,  most teams use their smallest CB as the Nickel.   Why do you think Kenny Moore plays mostly the nickel?  He's roughly the same height as Rodgers.    Few teams want a 5-10 corner playing outside.   Since the nickel is only in on 3 and 4 WR sets,  odds are he's going to face far more pass plays and far less run plays.   If opposing teams want to run out of passing looks,  most defenses will happily take that.     
    • Well....    you still don't make honest arguments....   and you didn't even try to address your post about giving players a half season, when you clearly haven't.     But the goal line always seems to move with you.   The argument always seems to change...    You're good at that.    Anything to try and win the argument.   You'd rather the Colts do poorly and you be right than the other way around.   It's not that way with most people....    it's pretty obvious.
