I want it to happen.  And if Ballard can't do it, I'll buy madden 21 and make it happen myself !

0% chance Houston trades him to division rival. He is too good and it would create an incredible obstacle for them to win the south for the next 12+ years. I refuse to believe they could be that stupi

I think there is a better chance than some might anticipate.

Here's what I would offer Texans 

2 1s 22' 2  and Darius Leonard 

I am afraid they would have to add 3rd 1

IMHO, Thats way too much

 

Leonard a constant pro bowler by himself is worth a first and a second. 

 

That would mean we would give up 3 first round picks AND 2 seconds.......

 

I would love to have him as our QB

 

I would give up 2 1s and a 2nd

 

But.......I just think the odds are near lottery levels

 

I really dont see the Texans making a move within the division let alone the AFC

 

I think IF a trade is done there will be someone in the NFC that has a need for a QB that has better draft capitol 

than we do 

 

With Deshaun we would win 11- -14 games per year.  we would go from drafting 22 to or higher

 

The future 1st (and second) would NOT be as valuable

Anything could happen, because Houston has done some STUPID moves, but have you seen anything that would make you think that?

 

It has to be lottery type chances

It would definitely take 3 1s cause unlike the other teams chances are high Colts especially if they got Watson would be drafting higher than 21 every single year.

 

I trust Ballard. He will find good players.

I would take Watson over Leonard anyday.

Colts have 8 to 1 odds

Odds on getting Watson?

 

He would be a killer on the Colts team.......   I just find it hard to believe that Houston would deal with us

 

 

I think Watson would be amazing here, I would just hate to gut our team to make it happen

Ive seen a few things, I posted them in Jags hire new coach thread I think.

 

1. Fields played for Meyer understudy Ryan Day at Ohio State.

 

 

Small chances but there has been some chatter.

 

 

We might be talking about different things though, because you said Houston and Im talking about Jags taking Fields over Lawrence

My comments were on Watson, I may have misread your post

 

Sorry man!

 

I dont believe that the Jags would pass on Lawrence, and I am a HUGE Ohio State Fan

(I was born there but I got to Texas as fast as I could :) )

 

I like Fields, but he had some amazing games and some extremely inconsistent games......

 

I hope the Jets dont draft him because he would get killed year one

Texans haven't proven they are great at drafting by any means so I have no issues giving them 3 1s 

I can never forget the colts only getting a 2 and 5 for Faulk when these discussions come up.  This was when RBs were premium positions too.

 

I wouldn't give 3 1's and I have no doubt Ballard would never give 3 for one guy.

In normal times, I would say this would never happen. But in the current times of Covid, and other historical events unfolding around us, combined with the fact that Watsons contract has a no trade clause that can only be voided by Watson if he wanted to go to a certain team, I’d say the odds are higher than never , still unlikely but I ain’t ruling anything out. 
 

watson, behind this line, with our running backs, would be instant contender. This is the LONE trade for a QB I’d be okay with. 3, number 1s, get it down Ballard

I read where he also has a clause where he doesn't have to report to the team therefore no threat of fines etc.  That along with his no trade clause gives him a tremendous amount of leverage on where he goes.  I guess he likes Flus which doesn't hurt either.  I also just read where teams are starting to call.  If he wants to use his leverage it might not that be far fetched if he wants to come here.  He could force them actually or he won't play.  This could get interesting.

I still think it’s high but a writer on the athletic had 5 different teams team trading major players and 2 or 3 first rounders and the latest this year being 12.  The others were top 5 picks 

so maybe there’s something to this @danlhart87   He just may know his stuff!

I do wonder if Ballard called their new GM to see what it would take to get Watson, even from a division rival. If they considered it in the ballpark of 3 1sts and Jacob Eason or Brissett I would jump all over that.

Brissett is a FA

    • Well thought out mock. Some of the additions I am not the biggest fan of(Ertz), but I can see them happening so, can't really beef with it too much.    I would also prefer we didn't spend a R2 pick on a run stuffing DT after paying 2 DTs long-term big money last year.    Other than that - love Newsome pick up, love Christiansen at that spot in the draft. Like the Patrick Jones pick. Love Deatrich Wise at that money. Overall very solid mock. Good job. 
    • Braden Smith allowed 1 QB hit and 0 sacks in 2020 with Rivers as QB.    
    • To the bolded, the point of having cap room and draft picks is to add good players. I don't think good roster management necessitates getting rid of good players when their contracts come up, not when you have the resources to keep them. Especially not if you're a good team, with contention in reach.    I think some overstate how "close" the Colts are, but I do think we're closer to being a contender than we are to being a team that should be stocking up picks to reshape the roster. And that's why 'forward-thinking Ballard' has been rolling forward tens of millions of cap every year.   As for the five players taking half the cap, that's not really where the Colts are, or will be. To keep it simple, once you factor in the pending cap increases -- the cap will be at $240m/year within the next two years, from the players' revenue split going up from 47% to 48.5%, from the TV contracts that are projected to nearly double to $10b/year, and from the 17th regular season game + 2 more playoff games -- having five $20m/year players is about 42% of your team's cap. And that's without going into contract structure and doing a year by year analysis of how your spending compares to the projected cap.   Teams with highly paid veteran QBs typically have about 40-50% of their cap tied into 6-8 players. Packers, Saints, Rams, Bucs, Chiefs, Steelers, Titans, etc. Pretty soon, you can add the Bills and Ravens to this list (and they're already close). The Cardinals are already there.    Right now, the Colts only have four guys above $10m/year (Wentz, Buckner, Kelly, Stewart). We have some room to add highly paid players, and still supplement the roster in free agency. Admittedly, my perspective is based on projected dramatic increases to the cap, but I would assume the Colts are factoring in those same increases. And because the Colts have some wiggle room right now, they might use a unique cap climate in 2021 to take advantage of their flexibility over the next 2-3 seasons, and structure contracts in a way that allows them to keep their young guys and still add a couple of veterans in free agency.  
    • I didn't think it that bad.   In hindsight it is.   Colts gave up the 22nd pick in the draft for the previous years #3 pick in the draft. In his rookie year, Richardson had good numbers - 950 yards rushing, 11 TD's, 51 receptions and 1 TD.  That was in 15 games with Weeden as the QB.  I thought with Luck as the QB his game would step up.      Was it a mistake - YES.   Was it the worst trade in Colts history - Not even close.   Let me remind you of this bad trade:   In search of a franchise QB, the Colts swung a deal with Atlanta for the top pick in the 1990 NFL Draft and used the pick on George, a homegrown product from Warren Central. The cost was steep. The Falcons received OT Chris Hinton, WR Andre Rison, a 1991 first round pick and a fifth round pick in 1990. A six-time Pro Bowler for the Colts, Hinton started 80 more games, including a Pro Bowl season in 1991 and an All-Pro nod in 1993.   Rison started for the Colts as a rookie and caught 52 passes in 1989. With the Falcons, Rison exploded, eclipsing 1,000 receiving yards in four of his five seasons in Atlanta. He finished his Falcons career with 5,633 yards and 56 touchdowns before bouncing around with five other teams in his final six seasons. The 1991 first round pick turned into WR Mike Pritchard, who spent nine solid, but unspectacular seasons in the NFL, finishing with 5,187 receiving yards. As for George, he spent four uninspiring seasons with the Colts with a 14-35 record as a starter, more interceptions than touchdowns (46 to 41) and was traded in 1994 to Atlanta.
    • You're kidding right? So Chris Hinton is worthy but AC isn't?
