The guy can still ball out and be productive for anyone. If he could get his act together, I wouldn’t mind having him. 
 

IF. 

He's messed up multiple times no thanks

Don't we have the TY connection with him and TY's father?   Ballard said the locker room is strong enough now compared to a few years ago.  This is the type of signing and risk that Ballard might be willing to take on now.  A great talent that won't break the bank or the cap at a position of need.  I wouldn't dismiss the Colts as a potential suitor.

I've always kind of wondered where TY stands with AB at this point. They were childhood friends, right? Not sure if his presence here would help with AB being in the locker room. I doubt we'll ever find out.

How could he serve an 8 game suspension when he wasn't under contract? 

it started whether he was under contract or not.... as to the why, I have no idea

We say that, but then he goes to Seattle, acts right and catches 10 touchdowns. 

He's not right in the head. I honestly think something is severely troubled with him. If he can stay out year or two and prove he is serious about his recovery then maybe but not now.

This is exactly the kind of signing that tear the locker room apart. AB is a great WR but he's an absolute mental case who needs help.

 

He already screwed things up with Steelers Raiders and Patriots and until he proves he is serious about his recovery he has no business in the NFL!

Looks like the Raven's are going to get him. He has talent, but the guy has been a cancer every place he's been. Lets not forget he's also suing both the Raiders and Patriots for signing bonus money.

That would make sense if it happens.  It's a 'good story' as the Ravens face his former team twice and potentially in playoffs. 

Also it doesn't help the Seahawks which is good for brady.

Dez and Brown on same team possibly 

That locker room is a disaster

Lets make one thing perfectly clear

 

AB is 5 star athlete with a 1 star attitude 

 

He's a headache and not worth it 

Not worth what? This place overblows the locker room cancer talk. This team swears it’s had nothing but team gentlemen and hasn’t been to the SB since 09

The "me" attitude.  The money.  The drama.  The headache.  The development of the younger WRs.  The chemistry that's already been built over the last six months.

 

If Ballard signs AB, and it actually works out, great.

 

But IMO, it's not worth the time or energy.  And I highly doubt he's going to return to his '14-'18 form.  He's 32.  His best days are behind him.  Hopefully his worst are as well, for his sake.

Not a fan of AB and personally I wouldn’t sign him but not cuz the attitude but moreso cuz I agree this team needs to find younger talent

He'd be a 1 year deal guy. He signed longer team deals with 3 teams and burned all three. It would have to be a deal loaded with incentives.

is do your job and not act like an jerk incentive enough

Maybe AB not going to Ravens according to Josina.

I'm  hoping he goes to Seahawks and helps derail brady. Lol

I don't think AB puts Seattle over Tampa or Green Bay for that matter. They need help on defense not offense.

Brady got him. Shocker. 

They are going all in now like they should be doing with Brady.  The Colts should make a move to give Rivers another weapon as well.  Same circumstances.  You can't have enough weapons for these older veteran QB's on a contending team.

If they go after anyone it would be someone who won't cost a lot like Ross

    • This may be the best football interview I have ever seen.  Must see for Colts, Packers or any other football fan!   Rodgers is the most candid I've seen and he's really funny.      
    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
