Eason was starter got hurt, Fromm came in played well and they elected to stay with him and Eason transferred       If you want to go that route then, Justin Fields couldn't beat o

I just wish this Wentz story would end 

The Texans aren't trading Watson to the Colts under any scenario.  Imo

After reading Rob Maaddi’s profile he doesn’t seems like someone who would lie/mislead

He is a eagles beat writer. So yeah he isn’t lying on purpose.

So in response to the colts offer for Wentz being leaked another team said they had a better offer. This also seems made up to get the colts to give up more.

 

 

No,  it means the Eagles made a counter offer.    Nothing in that tweet mentions a third team

@Chloe6124

     Can you or someone else provide the other tweet I mentioned from Rob Maaddi since I can’t 

All they have to do is click on the first tweet, it’s right under that one.

Ah thank you for the clarification. I like how that second post says "Its clear from my wording", at work we say if you have to explain what you said to someone, then most likely it wasn't clear to begin with.

My thoughts exactly. I was like no, I still barely understand the 2nd one....

 

Still was like that makes no sense. Should of said we(other team).

 

Anyway whatever, can we just not get Wentz already.

I’d this were true, the Eagles would at this point already have taken said better offer. 

I wouldn't think so.  They've still got time until the roster bonus is due.  And, clearly, the starting point for the Eagles seems to have been pretty far away from the starting points of the Colts and Bears.

 

"Better" is an awfully subjective term.  And, also, I get the impression this guy is a solid source.

They will lose what they will get because teams will go looking elsewhere. Ballard and Pace aren’t going to wait around.

I'm a little worried that CB will try and get alot for nothing in this musical chairs game and eventually  lose his leverage and options. The Colts will be the last team standing.

So be it...

 

They don’t need to over pay for a player. 
 

If Ballard wants a player bad enough, he will get him. (Buckner)

Ummm....QB is the most important position. Buckner is the only out on the limb pre draft trade to seriously up grade the team he has do made in 4 years.

This might be a dumb question. Just me thinking out loud. Could the eagles be afraid to trade Wentz to the colts because they know Reich will have him looking good? That would make them look stupid.

What QB are you wanting the Colts to over pay for?

I definitely think that has merit. Because:
1) What if the QB you drafted doesn't pan out (Jalen Hurts)
2) You trade your other QB who gets "fixed" and begins playing good football again
3) Because of #2, people then question the return you got in the trade
4) What if the trade assets don't pan out to anything

    • Alarming?    When the times comes, you don’t think Pittman is going to get a big contract?   You don’t think Taylor us going to get a big contract?   The answers are right in front of you, and for some odd reason, you’re not seeing it.  
    • The Colts have the cap space to sign Leonard and Smith to long-term deals this year and Nelson fortunately for us we are able to extend his 5th-year rookie contract option and post-pone his big payday a year later.   Leonard is not a true MLB so I doubt he will reset the market value at the linebacker position.  Originally thought Leonard could get a 5 year/$100 million contract with $60 million guaranteed but think it will be closer to 5 years/$82.5 million with $40 million guaranteed.   Smith am guessing closer to a 4 year/$58 million contract with $30 million guaranteed.   Depending on whom we keep/sign at left tackle I think will set the stage of how much cap space we will have left to resign players.  Do we keep an older Fisher or try to go after Viking's O'Neill (RT) and move him back to his LT position he played in college.  Both will cost a lot to retain either way and have some flexibility with O'Neill and Smith combination.   Do think Glowinski will be a cap causality since he is already on the books for $7.5 million for 2021 and expect him to make over $8 million in 2022.   The only other pending FA of note after this season to play RG Brandon Scherff but expect him to be too high priced out of the Colt range (4yr/$66 million).  So looks like OL Chris Reed might be a future option or another current OL on the roster might be able to take over.    As for the draft will have to keep in mind RG Baer Hunter from Appalachian State.  Hunter's team's OL ranked as a top-15 unit nationally that was very good at running the football.  Biggest issue have seen about Hunter from his game tapes is his a  drive killer with potential penalties with unnecessary holding and block in the backs once the play has extended past the second level.  The young man I do like best at this point in time is RG Cain Madden from Marshall.  Madden's run-blocking abilities improved form 60.3 to 74.2 from 2019/2020 and he finished top 10 among RGs.   Wouldn't be surprised next off-season if we cut IDL Grover Stewart – save 8.125m or 9.378m June 1 Cut and TE Jack Doyle – save 5.45m.  Some of the other FA's doubt we resign are Stallworth, Rochell, Muhammad, Carrie, Mack, Eldrenkamp, Dulin and Campbell.   After we resign Leonard and Smith to big contract extensions can see the Colts resign, MAC, Pascal, Lewis, Turray,Holden, Hunt and Reed.  Hines should also get resigned and looking at something similar to Austin Eckler contract APY $4.55 million 3 year/$13.645 million (base 3.9 million, 4.5 million, 5.65 million with 1.35 million roster bonus each year).  One FA name I like to replace Stewart with a younger improved version is Bear's IDL Bilal Nichols at best am comparing him to IDL Dalvin Tomlinson where I would offer him a 3 year/$33 million $11 million APY with $20 million signing bonus.  Again we get back either $8.125 million or $9.378 million depending on when we release Stewart under this scenario which after these movements only leaves the Colts with a projected $7-8 million in cap space currently.   Will have to do more research and play around with the futures but can envision the Colts will need to find starting WR, RG, RCB with backups at RDT, RDE, RB, FS, SS,  and TE.   Early watch list RD 1 Draft picks 2022 TE Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M George Pickens, WR, Georgia Drake Jackson, Edge, USC Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati Derek Stingley JR, CB, LSU Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida   RD 2 picks Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson John Metchie III, WR, Alabama Aidan Hutchinson, IDL, Michigan          
    • If what Ballard says about a Achilles is what happens with Fisher that means he could be ready by TC. Mack looks like he might be close to 100% and he is at the 8th mark. I think they will be extra careful with Dayo. But Fisher is a vet so if he is ready he will go.  Very possible Fisher is ready week one.
    • Those shoulder pads make him look huge. Lol
    • I don't know why you think you're revealing something that's embarrassing to Ballard?    You're not.   Ballard says the same thing at the start of every free agency period.   That other teams may value his players more than he does.   That's he's ok if he loses a player to another team.   He just wants a chance to match or exceed the offer.   Hilton was offered 3-years from Baltimore.   The Colts signed him to a 1-year deal.    That's a win for Ballard and the Colts.   Hilton got more than we would have liked,  but only on a 1-year deal.    So, that's a win for TYH.    A win-win situation.   There's nothing bad reflected on Ballard.   Yet you think you're offering some insight that the rest of us somehow don't understand.    That's not the case.   The rest of this community understands a win-win situation.    You want to see a loss, a negative for Ballard.   It's reflected in most of your posts,    It's reflected in many of your posts, including one in the last few days which talked about not a good enough record,  and not enough playoff wins.   Your views are widely known.
