Trade Target player you'd realistically love for Colts


Recommended Posts

Mine is TE Dallas Goedert. He has ties to our coaching staff, and he is about to become a budding star in the league. So this is the time to deal for him, before his price becomes too high. Indy needs a longterm answer at TE, and Goedert would be just that.

Just read where Jamal Adams and the Jets are at an impasse over contract negotiations.  I thought this was over but apparently not.  Adams wants a new deal before the season starts and the Jets want to wait.  Since we are up in the air on Hooker maybe a trade for Adams could solve things.  Safety for safety.  Jets get Hooker and a 3rd and we give an all pro safety a new contract.

If they hadn’t drafted Blackmon then maybe , but it would cost more than Hooker and a third to get Adams.

Blackmon and Hooker are both FS. Adams is a SS. He would be replacing Willis.

I still don’t see that trade happening, Willis has played well enough that they didn’t bring back Geathers. I mean Adams would be an immediate upgrade but I just don’t see the Front Office wanting to lock him in to such a expensive contract that he will want. Especially with our own current guys needing to get paid.

Why would the team that runs 1-2 sets 54% of the time...trade their budding superstar TE?
 

I mean hypothetically...I love the idea of getting Goedert...but no way he’s available.

I’ll go with OBJ.

If the Browns start slowly he could probably be had for pennies on the dollar, and he has all the talent to be a top WR in the league. 
 

On D.. give me Von Miller. Again, if Denver loses a bunch of games, maybe they sell. Imagine him and Buck coming to get ya!

From a realistic standpoint...I would stick with TE though. It’s the one position that really lacks long-term stability. So I would love to get Howard or Henry...IMO two potential top 5 TEs that (I believe) have been held back for one reason or another. You could add Njoku as a buy-low TE trade as well.

 

Outside of that...I guess you could look at CB or S. But I can’t really think of any available...that Ballard would be willing to pony up for.

Not sure what the Jets would want in return, but we could afford it with the cap being 120+ next year.

I will be the anti trade voice.   Some of those mentioned need new contracts.  The Colts have their own to sign soon, so I'm not sure it makes sense to give up more draft capital for a good player who we have to give a bunch of money to.   Buckner was an exception because D-line was the most needed position by the team.

 He is a Great player. And can play great at all 3 levels of the D.

O.J.Howard - For an offense that has not typically featured TEs, Arians, no matter what he says after the addition of Gronk, has way too many mouths to feed, IMO.

 

Howard could probably be had for a 4th or 5th rounder now.

This. Here is a player who needs a new start and would upgrade the TE corps immediately. And it needs upgrading. I see it as the one remaining weakness on the offense. 

I'm a big Doyle fan, but we all know he has some limitations. Cox is still an unknown commodity; I like Burton but he's coming off injury and a lackluster year. 

The Colts lack a modern, pass catching TE; Howard would be that guy and I suspect he would come pretty cheap. 

So......Howard for a 4th round pick anyone?

With Gronks injury history and the pressure on the Bucks to do well, I'm not sure they would trade him for a mid round pick.

I would say nobody.  They just made their elite trade for Buckner and payed him all that money, and deservedly so IMHO.  That will be the extent of it for a while.  They could still bring someone in but it won't be an elite caliber player.

Isn't the salary cap for 2020 about $198 million.  I've read that the cap may go down depending on how Covid-19 affects attendance, concessions, etc.  However, dropping to $120+ million seems a little too steep of a drop.

He is saying Colts will have $120m in cap space. Not that the cap is $120m.

I'm saying that's the colts cap space in 2021

I figured the Colts would be using lots of that space for their own players.

Well so far only Kelly and Hilton have mentioned contract extensions so I'm not sure the colts will be bringing a lot of their guys back.

With our offensive line, a fullback and the drafting of Taylor I think our team has become a more running team than a TE based team. 

Plus the addition of Burton (who is a blocking TE) more so.

    • That type of stuff is nearly impossible to coach out of someone. Generally speaking players are who they are in college. QBs who turn the ball over in college, tend to do the same in the pros (Winston). Receivers who drop passes in college tend to drop passes in the NFL (Sammy Coates, Eric Ebron).   It’s been 2 years, he is who he is at this point. You can’t simply coach that out of him. It’s a mentality and part of his game. You see why he grabs too. When he doesn’t he almost always gets beat. He got beat by Brown on that TD play and then started grabbing and putting his hands in the receivers face mask so he wouldn’t get beat.   Also the whole young and needing growth thing goes out the window when you’re a starter in your second year. He’s a pro now and he’ll be treated as such. That’s why he got benched.
    • We awarded Stewart so he is off this list now.  A good 3T and 1T combo for the future.
    • I like a LT in the first if one is available worth the pick.  I cannot stand Clark as our depth personally.  Round 2 and 3 I would hope for a CB and WR/DE. We need another solid CB for depth based on Rhodes might not coming back and Carrie being the next best who also might not be back. Tell should play next year but a year sitting does not help any progression.  WR to replace TY, yes! And DE to replace Houston as well.
    • Darius Leonard and Walker are a solid duo. And if I’m not mistaken 3 LBs have an interception for us this season. Our guys actually have speed and can cover for once. Would you prefer D’Qwell Jackson and Antonio Morrison? The good ole 2 down thumpers.
