Unfortunately there is only one Bill O brien 

Make a trade with Andrew Luck's wife to get his rights

Posted Images

I don't think we get anyone big at all. But if we did, DE would be my biggest want.

 

With Pittman coming back, and Johnson emerging (assuming he stays consistent), I'm pretty OK with WRs 1-4.

 

I just don't know abut Gallup. He's medium size and medium to OK fast. Great production last year though. I sure wouldn't complain. IMO, it would be un-Ballard like to grab him. 

 

I could see us picking up a RB if the right guy was available for a decent price.

I'd be fine with this. If the team can handle a possible distraction like Chad Kelly, they could handle Griffen assuming he's taking care of himself. My only issue with him is his age (32). Still seems to have some gas in the tank though. He's only on a one year deal, so not really sure what it buys Dallas.

I don't see it being a pick high enough to really impact a QB trade. I could see them however using him as a trade for a QB. A Griffen for Fitzmagic trade would help both, but not sure Miami values a one year DE right now. Maybe a team like LAC. Any team who's not in the playoff hunt really doesn't benefit.

I would like to trade away Jacoby for draft capital and use that pick and trade up in next year draft for a QB.  Rivers isn’t the franchise QB he is a stop gap for us.  We aren’t going far in the playoffs anyways not trying to be negative but we won’t.  I’m not saying tank the season but don’t waste our picks for anymore players.  I can see if we are 1-3 players away from a Super Bowl but unfortunately we are not there yet.

Thielen has helped Cousins produce a success rate of 66.7 on all red-zone targets, good for the best rate in the NFL, along with a total red-zone line of 15-of-21 for 134 yards and eight TD passes. 

 

I would make the trade if we get good value (1st or 2nd round pick), but many fans, especially those living in MN would not be pleased. He is a Minnesota native who grew up a Vikings fan and went undrafted. He is very popular in MN. He is also an excellent receiver who runs good routes and catches almost everything thrown in his direction. I think I would prefer keeping him.

 

I am willing to trade everyone with 4 or more years experience except Danielle Hunter, Kendricks, Dalvin Cook, Harrison Smith and Thielen.

Ha... We actually do have his rights at the moment. If he were to unretire he'd still be a Colt. 

 

I'd be happy to pick up a defensive end.

If not for the Bengals owner being a hard ball, I'd go after Carlos Dunlap for a 4th or 5th round pick.

 

I would talk to the Panthers about Curtis Samuel, and the Eagles about Zach Ertz. They will definitely add value to our offense as the year goes on, IMO.

I doubt they do it with Turay coming back. Ballard usually stands pat at the trade deadline. The Mike Evans thing is interesting though.

Who is Ertz going to replace now that Burton is starting to produce? Get rid of Doyle maybe? Ertz, Cox, and Burton would be nice.

Doyle can still remain in line TE and Ertz and Burton rotate at pass catching TE. Burton is not an every down/high downs player like Ertz can be, IMO, given his history.

So what happens with Cox who is better than just about all of them except Ertz.

I kinda doubt we do anything at all. And not sure Turay is ready. The pick up of Carter to the 53 I though signaled they might not be confident in the timing of Turay's return. And I'm sure once he does return, it will take a while for him to get back to game form.

 

Any pick up though, would have to be a good $, skill, timing, and needs fit. With Pittman coming back soon, not sure WR in the conversation either. Whatever happens, I'm not opposed at all to a quality add.

Burton to me is more slot and HB, than TE. While I agree Doyle is less dynamic a pass catcher than some, he's always been highly effective catching the ball. He runs great routes and moves the chains. Mo IMO is undervalued here, and needs more of the detached snaps. Hoping his snap counts go back up.

    • Kid is a stud. Really need him to stay another year so he and Buchner can get us a Natty.
    • STANFORD!!!! As for Phillips, I have to share the concern others have over his concussion history. He’s apparently prone to them, and the odds only go up that you’ll get one on the NFL. He can’t be but a few more away from having to step away from the game permanently. There’s no denying his talent, but I’d much rather see the Colts maneuver their way into getting Payton Turner in the second round. That guy is an intriguing, 3 down type DE. Relentless motor, pterodactyl arms.    
    • I don't want to speak for other people...but I will take a stab at it from a devil's advocate POV.   The way I see it...it's not necessarily the idea of paying Q or Leonard...it's more the idea of paying a premium (meaning truly market-setting massive contracts) for players that don't actually play a premium position.    Most people (outside of the truly ardent positional value people) would have no issue with having the highest-paid player at G if he's the best G in the NFL (which Q pretty much is). Right now the highest long-term AAV at G is Thuney with a $16M AAV. So I don't think anybody would quibble with giving Q $17-18M.   But many people (including Q's agent I am sure) are thinking Q should get top LT money...which is $22-23M+ AVV. So I can definitely see where the disconnect starts to occur.    You can do the same exercise with Leonard...except use highest-paid WILL and then highest-paid MIKE (if not higher).   There's definitely a balance to carrying large contracts on the cap. You can only have so many of them. And when you max out...you can be limited in how you can fill certain positions of need (including premium positions). So now, instead of trading for a DeFo or signing a top tier CB in FA...you have to figure out how to fill those premium positions with cheaper FAs or via the draft.   Ballard has been able to short-term fill those positions with cheaper FA moves, but not the draft. And traditionally, it is just easier to fill less premium positions through those means.     
    • Thanks, I missed quite a few (ten!) additional reserve/futures contracts. Below is the updated info on r/f contracts, new adds are bolded:   Reserve/Futures Contracts   Defense CB Andre Chachere CB Anthony Chesley CB Will Sunderland CB Roderic Teamer DT Kameron Cline DT Chris Williams DT Rob Windsor S Ibraheim Campbell S Nick Nelson   Offense G Jake Eldrenkamp G Sam Jones OT Jake Benzinger OT Elijah Nkansah OT Carter O’Donnell OT Casey Tucker RB Darius Anderson RB Benny LeMay RB Paul Perkins TE Farrod Green TE Jordan Thomas TE Andrew Vollert WR Quartney Davis WR Gary Jennings WR J.J. Nelson QB Jalen Morton   Special Teams P Austin Rehkow Note: I confirmed all of these on the official Colts.com website as r/f additions as well as being shown as currently on the roster.
    • Without a pass rush, KC is almost insurmountable   With a little more pass rush in Buffalo..... just 1 or 2 more hurries in that game.... we win   I 100% agree on not forcing it   If we dont trade out of 21, and Paye is there .... you take Paye   If not, take the best OT on the board.   Get DE in round 2 (Maybe trade up to get the DE on our board)   Looking at the draft I think there are some decent DEs that could be in a rotation this year that might be had in 2nd round   Turner, Basham, Weaver, Tryon, or Odeyingbo, are ones that come to mind
