I feel same way as you, do we just let Eason run a season and save cap space. Draft guys for depth (QB if we get the Staffs choice to land right) , sign a few CBs, a good T/G and maybe a TE. If we go 500 take a QB next draft. This would let us build a stronger more complete team and have the cap ready for when the franchise QB choice is made.

I hate the thought of going.500. I don't think Ballard and Reich will go into the season without a highly talented QB under center.

Jacob Eason, I don't know? If they fill the hole left at LT, I believe they can win it all without an elite QB.

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

A deal like this I think makes more sense because more is placed on what Wentz does here?

 

Probably obviously not happening(still don't really want him). Jist wondered thoughts on a deal structure like this?

New member but I really think Indianapolis should just go all in and go for Watson. I've written an open letter about this but to summarize Wentz is just not the answer. The only other viable option would have been Stafford but they took a powder on that deal, which wasn't a terrible idea as Stafford is 33 and I think a younger QB would likely be a better fit for Reich. He's prolly gonna command 3 years worth of 1st and 3rd round picks but hear me out.

 

With the cap space you have and very little dead money on the table, you can afford to go big in free agency at 2 or 3 other positions right now. There should be a couple of really solid prospects as a true 4-3 EDGE on Day 2 this year. The only true beast at that spot in FA with no question marks for Eberflus' scheme is Ngakoue but he's gonna command $15M. Williams out of NY at $11M is better on the interior in a 3-4 but the Giants offense didn't do their defense any favors this year.

 

Either sign a vet LT for $15M or grab a guy like Peters to fill in for a year and address that spot next year in the second round unless you can get a steal in Round 4 this year. Villenueva would cost but he doesn't have the miles on his body as most tackles his age. Williams is gonna be too expensive at around $18M.

 

So one of those two positions go big in FA, and use your 2nd round pick this year addressing the other as both OT and EDGE are deep draft classes this year and 3-4 EDGE guys are gonna go first. You don't want to fill that spot with a 4-3 OLB because then you are dependent on blitz schemes. 

 

CB is gonna be a tough one. I wouldn't risk Rhodes at 2-3 years and $8M annually. But, if you get a true beast at 4-3 edge it will make it easier to develop young corners and take a lot of pressure of of the ones with less talent. and make coverage schemes in general easier to work with. Sherman could be a neat 1 year option because he's scheduled to take a pay cut.

 

What would be truly awesome and I know this is a soft spot for a lot of Colts fans but.. I'd let Hilton walk this year and grab Fuller from Houston too. He's gonna want around $16M but he's had time with Watson and can still take the top off of a defense. He's still a burner with a big frame and is exactly what this team needs to really open up passing lanes underneath for Doyle, Burton and Pascal. Combine that with a two headed monster at HB in Taylor and Hines and you've got a Top 5 offense.

He would have to sit out games with no other teams matching our trade for that to happen.  Right now they are hoping they can bring him back in, i dont think they will but it has to play out

Thats the only way I can see them trading him to us.  They have said they dont plan on trading him and the goal is to get him back. I think they will fail but they are going to try to fix it first

Yeah, I agree they should be compensating us.

To show them he is for real about not playing for them.

OK that's a fair point but at the same time I really think Houston is bluffing. Their cap situation this year is going to be impossible to manage without dealing some players. They can let all of their FAs walk and cut as many David Johnsons as they want but they will still be in trouble next year.

I’m following the thought process now. I thought he meant as part of the trade

I’d be fine with that. Then, we don’t lose all of our capital on a high risk project.

    • how many of our low dollar free agents could be starters on the bucs of other elite teams? they start for us because they are the best of the below average talent
    • Ya I would have had all of CA and Texas if not for Pandemic last year. Plan AZ in June and hopefully finally Texas too.      Just off of 170 in University City. I work out in Clayton, will end up moving though once my lease is up.
    • Well...    since you asked.     The difference is Ballatd had the other two mostly (not entirely) on the PS.   Ballard kept Patmon on the 53 I think for the entire season (if not pretty close)  so no other team could claim him.  That says how much Ballard thinks of him.  It wasn’t because he’s a special teams ace like other players.  Ballard sees potential, so some fans do too. 
    • I don’t think Ballard can resist taking a receiver from this great class.   I may not be in favor of taking one with our first pick, but I’m hugely in favor of using no later than a 4 on another WR.      Our WR group may look interesting, but there are WAY too many unknowns....   * How many years left for TYH? * Can Campbell stay healthy? * How good can Patmon be? * How good can Harris be?   Heck, there are some here who aren’t fully sold on Pittman.   So our group has more question than answers.   Not enough sure things to not take a good bite at this WR Apple.   It’s only a question of when and not if.
