We have some players coming due that r going to require some big money. Would u use any of those assets to acquire a young qb in the draft or a qb  currently under contract?  I would also include a #1 wr or shut down man corner.

If you're talking about Nelson, Leonard, and Smith, no I would not trade any of them.

If they trade those assists you’ll be the first person to blame Ballard for trading those players and creating a hole because they didn’t have a replacement.

Who would ever want to trade Nelson?  He singlehandedly transformed our OL and elevated the play of EVERYONE along the line.  He is the best player currently on our roster, and no one would compensate

Buckner. 

 

We already locked him up for like the next 5 years with that big contract.  The way @Moosejawcolt worded his post, I assumed he was talking about guys whose rookie contract was almost up, and trading them before having to sign them to a big contract.

 

But even if Moose was including Buckner, I wouldn't trade him either.  Buckner and Leonard are necessary for our defense to work.  Nelson and Smith are necessary to have a great OLine and make the offense work.  These are foundational guys that we WANT on our team for the next 4 years.  We don't trade any of them away.

 

Also, any QB coming into Indy is gonna want those guys on his team.

I rather bring in a cheap QB like Fitz and free up space to let Ballard keep drafting young talent and signing our own. We need our oline and D core. We might not resign Houston, Walker, or Rhodes sadly we cant keep em all.

I wish we could get a shot at signing Prescott.

The problem with that is that Nelson, Leonard, and Smith will all require sizable contracts, so the team is giving up picks and cap space. You're not likely to get the original investment back, and as mentioned, you would have to replace them.

That being said, I bet the one with the most trade value is Smith

Yup. Nelson is a guard and 1st team all pro or not, I doubt a team would give up a lot. Some teams dont value the linebacker postion that high. They see it as interchangable ad do I. Leonard is undersized and built for this scheme.

The sad thing is Nelson is probably the one that would be easiest to replace. Could we get another Leonard in the draft. He is to much of a vocal leader I think go get rid of him.

I could see it if the plan is to move up and get a qb, I just don't believe that Ballard would do it. The Buckner trade last year indicated that he wasn't interested in a long term rebuild. Not saying its the wrong move, I'm firmly in the camp that without a franchise qb you are always going to be behind the 8-ball, but I don't think he makes the move.

I mean, if the point is to move up in the draft for that QB, I'd just use other draft picks to balance out the trade.  I wouldn't trade away one of the best players on the team, and especially a player that would be a huge asset for the new QB.

If you wait until the end of today, there’ll be 3 more fan bases willing to trade half their team and coaches because they also want to retool their playoff caliber team.

Absolutely. 

No position is nearly as important as a Franchise/or Elite QB. We seen that yesterday vs Allen. He impressed me.

The thing is you have to correctly identify your target. 

 

Good GM's don't fall in love with their players. They need to be looked at as assets. And if you have to move some of your assets to acquire a more important asset,like a franchise QB,  then you do so.

You want the Colts to trade their star RT Braden Smith who didn't allow a sack at all this year to fill a void in another spot?

 

That helps but then RT becomes a weakness 

I didnt say trade him. In fact out of Nelson and Leonard, he is probably the one I would not trade

Autry is FA

Damn we have so many FAs on D this season. Houston, Rhodes, Hooker, Walker, and apparently Autry. I'm sure there is more. We can use a one year option/extension on Leonard right?

Not anyone that's worth giving up.

No, Leonard was a second round pick
