Colts Should Highly Consider Signing Jadeveon Clowney on a Short-Term Deal

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.

 

Their 7th round picks. Not exactly saving much.

I think it's more about roster spot than saving. The 0.7M is just what I expect (not specifically to save).

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

 

Agreed, but he is into Trey Flowers type money who got a 5 year $90 million contract from the Lions in 2019. He could get it, but finding a match will be hard.

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. 

I’d be close to seeing if he would take a 2 yr deal. 30 million, 17 guaranteed. I don’t want another 1 year deal unless they are fringe player. JC is certainly not a fringe guy, he has super talent. He does bring baggage and for the money, I’m not sure I’d want committed to him longer term. He has too many games missed in his career so far.

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

Obviously, however, those two players didn't turn down big money elsewhere, and wait. 

My comment was in regard to "The locker room". Ballard paid dedicated, hard working players and fit them into the locker room. Paying Clown because he is waiting for more money, is quite a different add to the locker room.

Not really.  It's called negotiation.  All of the FA players Ballard added were added through negotiation.  No different for Clowney no matter where he signs.  His contract will be larger that's all.   Criticizing him for trying to get the best contract he can holds no water really.

Right. I don't think Ballard just offered Buckner a massive 4/$84M out of the blue and that was that. 

 

Sort of a double standard...lauding Ballard for staying firm on his valuations and negotiations...but when a player does it...it's a potential issue.

Ballard's Law: "You'll pay more for a free agent than you expect, even considering Ballard's Law."

I disagree. Ballard just commented that the locker room was to a point they could add a big name. That could be interpreted in several ways, but I assume he is talking about a player like Clowney, not really guys like Rivers and Buckner.

 

I'm middle ground when it comes to Clown. I'm not breaking the bank long term on him, but I'd absolutely give him a 2 year 30M deal.

    • By now, we should be smart enough to just go look at the numbers, the deaths, the active cases, the recovered and make up our mind. You should not be reliant on media reporting for just the numbers aspect of it, just my take on it. I can bring up the news network that you did not mention as well and poke holes in them as to what they do not provide coverage on as well but this is not the thread for it.   I go here and just look at the numbers every day and make up my mind based on all the categories:   https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/   As my posts suggest, if we are smart about it and plan it out well, I do not see a reason for no football. 
    • its about the numbers, 22 players on the field isnt a lot but 70,000 in the stands is
    • The odds a vaccine are not high. I'm just going to say it (again) you're all being lied to at a incredible rate about this virus and the simplest answer, given that they're usually right, is that it's an election year.  The corporate media (comcast, disney ect) have an agenda and bias and the current admin doesn't share it. Why won't any of the ABC, NBC, CNN of the world report the death rate as opposed to saying "the death rate doesn't matter" and tabling the number? Why won't any of them talk about the border? Or what of New Mexico and their policy that's different from Arizona or Texas?  The virus spreading among people who aren't at severe risk is actually a good thing- sorry Tony Fauci (he needs fired for the lies, the spin, the just getting it wrong and then blaming people who notice this.. he sucks). That is if we'd like to get back to normal- which get's back to it's an election year. Now if you don't mind I'm going to check the Premier League standings, or any number of other leagues the world over that's not based out of a country with an election this year. The lies. The damned lies.   
    • Yes, and that's exactly what they did! https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/giants/ny-deandre-baker-quinton-dunbar-icloud-warrant-coverup-20200710-luc6jyesjjes5e3l56g4bpbnqm-story.html   Video evidence, Instagram DMs, testimony show payoff cover-up for DeAndre Baker and Quinton Dunbar, further implicate NFL players in crime. The warrant allegedly shows witness Dominic Johnson oversaw the payoff of DeAndre Baker’s and Quinton Dunbar’s four alleged victims at the office of Dunbar’s attorney, Michael Grieco.    Dominic Johnson Instagram DM: “I made them same n----s that said they got robbed come in and say them Boys ain’t have nothing to Do with it.” Baker DM to Johnson: "Yo I’m in the city now getting cash how much to bring ?? I’m tryna get there too u ASAP.”   Unnamed team sources, asked for comment on our breaking news, said they would not expect DeAndre Baker to remain on the Giants roster much longer.”
    • I think they maybe need to do an NFL cheating cost/benefit analysis
