Also likely drafting a CB high. I see Trevon Diggs in the 2nd round.

 

Edit: Desir was also one of his one year wonders that I feel he realizes he crowned too early. He also released Hunt who was the same. I expect Autry to be next.

The Seahawks just offered him a contract, no word if he's taking it or not

Why?  It’s not like they have an abundance of decent CBs on the roster 

Look, I think a lot of this has to do with now believing they will be able to put immense pressure on the QB next year, allowing the CB's to not have to be superstar corners. Meaning the CB's can be a little forgiving and won't have to be able to cover so long. They might be trying to get clowny, which would bolster this point as well.

  Maybe they go with Agholor.

I wouldn’t mind a 1-2 year deal for suh.  Could you imagine a Buckner, Suh Autry rotation!!?!  Houston and Turray on the outside with our depth pieces getting eased into playing time.  Man that would be an impressive line and possibly top 10.  Line backers and Hooker would feast and this D would play fast and cause turnovers and TFLs

I wonder if they really like Marvell Tell... he got a lot more playing time than I expected, especially as a 5th round pick who is transitioning from S in college to CB in NFL. I thought he did fairly well... 

 

I also expect us to take another CB in the draft. This class actually has some nice players in that R2-R3 range. 

Tell played heavily in only 4 games. Week 8, 9, and 11 when Desir was out, and week 12 when Willis was out. He looked lost at times, which is understandable to an extent, but also flashed some good moments too. He definitely has some skills and raw ability, but not sure he'll ever be anything more than depth or situational. He's definitely a raw project. 

 

Maybe they're looking at Jimmy Smith or Logan Ryan. Honestly, I'd kinda hate to use a high pick on CB this year. If that's the plan, I would have kept Desir to be honest. I think all of our DBs are going to look better with the addition of Buckner.

And both Suh and Buckner usually demand a double team. Tough choices for other teams line.

Name 1 Pro Bowl CB from the Giants 2007 and 2011 SB winning squads. Name 3 Pro Bowl DL from the Giants 2007 and 2011 SB winning squads. I rest my case. :) 

The Chiefs won the SuperBowl with Tyrann Mathieu and corners that I can’t even name. The front 4 matters. If we get Clowney to go with Houston and Buckner, we should be good back there.

I wonder if we can re-sign him if he doesn’t get any offers? He would still be nice to have because we seem to have some injury concern with our DBs and Wilson seems to be far down the depth chart still.

That CBs aren’t as important as the DL, if we had to choose. I should have just said “I think you get my point.” At least that’s my point.

  Suh played 874 snaps last season. Wow! Just thinking he would be an upgrade on 1st down and short yardage. Maybe play 500 snaps or such. A solid piece.

Crazy thing is I got the alert about Desir as I was writing up my mock draft in my Notes section of my phone....and now I have to change it again lol. This is why I’m waiting to release a mock. Every couple of days, something changes.

Griffen makes a lot of sense as a stop gap...though would prefer someone younger.

Could (Clowney or another FA) very well be the case . IMO , the cut was made now for one of 2 reasons... or maybe both ?

 

1) As you said , to clear money for a sizable signing.

          or ... and...

2) To give Desir as much time as possible to find another team

He just wasn't worth the cash and probably hit his ceiling in 2018. 

I consider him one of the best addition of Ballard's reign so far. Took a journeyman and made him into a top20 corner in the league. just couldn't keep it up.

I’d do that deal...if it was only 3 years max.

Colts don't have that much cap room in my opinion.  They were at about $21 million after signing Buckner & Rivers...with the Desir cut now at roughly $28 million.  $18.5+  would be a sizeable chuck of that.  If Clowney is signed, I'd expect another cut at backup QB (Brissett or Hoyer) to follow sometime after.

Currently the top 51 SC is 29.2. We'll be without either Hoyer or JB (or both), so will likely have somewhere between 4 and 20ish more when that all gets figured out. Autry 5.7M could be another casualty.

We made an offer so we must be serious about signing him.  Seahawks should be the clear cut favorite but the clearing of the Desir cap space at this time has to make you wonder.

Rumor has it the offers were in the 13 to 14 m range and he might take a one year deal. I jump on that if he agreed to play here. The appeal of playing against the Texans has to be appealing.

I love Buckner and everything he brings but I personally think we need one more dominant force to really put together everything and with the Turay injury last year things are uncertain. If we could get Clowney man...

I would love to get Clowney as well. The Colts dont have difference makers (On Def Hooker, Leonard, Houston). And young difference makers cost money. By adding Buckner, it gives us an immediate difference maker. Folks are against Clowney (Former #1 overall pick, 27 years young) asking for a high price but love signing Philip Rivers (Former #4 overall pick, 38 years old, $25 Mill).

 

Philip Rivers played an entire season without any significant injury and still sucked. As a Playoff starting QB, you need to raise the play of your entire team, even if that means putting them on your back, not catching temper tantrums on the sidelines, because you decide to throw in 3 man coverage. At least JB was 5-2 before his injury and even had MVP talk nationally. And from what i'm told, is a great locker room leader. JB have some-what of an excuse for his late season performance mainly injury related. I would rather pay a younger guy 7 out of 10 times.

 

What did Chiefs do last year to add to their existing squad? Add difference makers

* Tyrann Mathieu 27 years old (tied 2nd in tackles in Superbowl)

* Frank Clark 26 years old (Sack in Superbowl)

* Bashaud Breeland 28 years old (Int in Superbowl, and leading team tackler)

He ain’t going nowhere 

 

JB and/or the other QBs on the roster might be the difference between a mid-tier and marquee FA signing right now, IMO. The QB position is where I anticipate the next set of cuts happening.

I agree..... but I just don’t think the colts will cut him. Ballard’s always talked about having a good backup. Will believe it, when I see it.

    • I liked it a lot, but I found that baseball purists did not like it as much. Even though the Yankees beat the Mets most of the time, most of the games were competitive and the games the Mets won brought good memories.   I recall where I was when this happened. (I get chills. ) I remember walking in the street and I jumped up when utility man Matt Franco got this walk-off hit off Mariano Rivera at the bottom of the 9th. My eyes glanced at a man sitting in his car, who screamed at the same time. It was rare for Mariano to blow a save. This was around 1996 or so.     Listen to that great call. I love it!   That was one of my favorite Mets teams.   
    • Again in terms of projecting values out, this all depends on how we see Braden Smith valued.    I said to go high at $10M a year based on a few things:   1) If you asked many people is Braden Smith a top-5 RT, most would say no. I think he is. either way a top-5 RT slots in at an AAV of $10M a year right now   2) Most of the guys getting top $ at RT got that top dollar by getting it on the open market. Lane Johnson is the exception. However, the Eagles gave him that extension when there was originally talk about him moving to LT as Peters aged. The guys that signed extensions with their current teams got $10M a year or less.    3) This is to say I think Smith can totally get over $10M a year if he hits the open market and wants to test the waters. However, if the Colts looked to extend him now and give him financial security as a 2nd round pick that has not made much money yet in his career and did so in a year where the cap came down and a lot of players are going to take less money if they are not a superstar, I think him signing a deal averaging $10M a year would be a win for him and the Colts     At the end of the day, my entire point of this thread was to simply point out that us investing $50-$55M in a starting OL out of a future cap of around $200-$220M is very, very doable and arguably reasonable in terms of how Ballard likes to build through the trenches. Having an OL tie up 25% of your cap and a combined OL and QB tie up less than 40% of your cap for the next 3-4 years is actually very, very reasonable.   I have admittedly been a big advocate for Trent Williams. He is aging, sure. But he has shown no signs at all of slipping. And he even has one less year of wear and tear on his body from sitting out a year with the whole tumor fiasco where Washington really didn't do right by him with their medical team. So would I throw a 4 year deal at him with big money where the only guaranteed money was paid out in the first two years and then there were salaries on the back end that can easily allow a cut if the performance dips? Absolutely.   Either way, this was really to just get our base chatting about all this since the canned narrative everyone is spitting out is the same narrative that is being fed to fans from the media that says "they'll have too much tied up in their OL with the extension for Kelly and the upcoming extensions for Nelson and Smith." I'm just saying if we managed things the way guys like Mike Bluem have been, then we can comfortably invest in a top FA  LT if we wanted to without it being overly painful downstream. 
    • I personally do not like the idea of trying to come up with a stop gap or developmental guy at the most inportant position on the OL. Solidify that position with a dependable proven LT whether it  Villanueva or someone else. Same with DE. Find a proven pass rusher and pay him. Use the draft or WR, CB and solidifying other positions including OL. I think we are very close to being in  SB contention and 3 to 4 good players may push us over the top. We can't foolishly throw money at these guys but if we are prudent we have plenty of money to carry us.
    • Yeah, my little voice partly thinks the same (perhaps contract year type of performance). I just hate saying it out loud, as he was considered very very raw when drafted. He was used all over the place at USC, and relied way too much on his natural gifts instead of technique. Maybe he was a bit lazy, but it's also possible he was just raw, wasn't able to focus, and things are just now clicking. Or maybe he was lazy a bit, and finally grew up or matured enough to commit to his craft.    He's an interesting guy to follow. I could see it falling either way. I remember his recruiting out of HS (think he was out of Mainland) Thought for sure he'd end up at FSU, UF, or Auburn. My FSU and Auburn buds thought he was a lock lol. One of my FSU buds swore USC bought him a car lol. I was hoping ND would offer, but rumor was, he didn't have close to the grades needed.    
    • Hmmm I watched the show on  prime (all episodes) And Although I haven't seen many of the games from last year I found him to be pretty damn good and a very nice guy. I mean I wasn't a huge fan before but I think we got a winner at Qb and im looking forward to watching all year. Watch the show on prime  its worth the watch
