I doubt he’s going from roughly $11 mill to the vet minimum. He’d likely be willing to take a pay cut, but that far down I think is hard to see. Also, there has to be incentives to give him a chance to earn some of that back.
I get that, and the short yardage “Jacoby” package has been pretty effective, save for Week 1 in which nothing seemed to work. I thought he would be a great fit in Dallas after Dak went down, but I credit Ballard for not just giving him away, perhaps Jerry Jones wasn’t willing to panic & overpay, especially with Andy Dalton on the roster but when he got hurt as well, I’ll bet Jones would’ve preferred another option at quarterback to rookie Ben DiNucci. All that occurred before the NFL trading deadline, and I think the Cowboys could be running away with their sorry Division had they acquired Brissett.
With that said, he is terrific insurance here in the event that Philip couldn’t go, and his presence saves the Colts from having to rely on a rookie QB in the event of that disastrous circumstance.
Don’t really know where to put this, so administrators feel free to move. I have officially started my podcast... Forged In Blue Podcast. It is live on Spotify and is pending apple podcasts, as well as others. I have been active on here and would to have you goes go over and check it out.
Give me a listen, like, share or whatever. If you got questions please @me on Twitter at @ForgedinBlue. Look forward to hearing from y’all.
There's no way I'd start Pinter at LT over Clark. Having Pinter try to go 1-on-1 with JJ Watt all game at a position he hasn't played in the pro's yet is asking to absolutely kill any confidence he has. I don't think he has the length to play LT in the NFL anyhow. We're way better off with Clark having a week of starting reps.
