According to John Gambadoro: “The deal JJ Watt signed with the Cardinals was NOT the most he was offered. The Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts each offered more money. Tennessee's offer was very similar.“

If true it looks like Ballard will be trying for a big fish or two this year in FA.  ER and WR1 ?

Don't believe everything that is tweeted. Just saying.

I'm excited to hear that Ballard was looking to pay Watt that much, but I'm glad that Watt chose elsewhere. Because this might mean that we get Yannick N. or one of the other top pass rushers.

Not big on Yannick honestly 

Seems like a player that wouldn't play up to his high contract

If any of this is true, the cards make no sense. Their not contenders and they offered less money. Does playing with Hopkins again really matter that much?

The guys an Arizona sports journalist it’s his job to make the Cardinals look like they got a good deal. I doubt Ballard will splash on any big name free agents considering the we have quite a few extensions from the 2018 draft to work out in the near future.

Pat McCaffee said on his show today that his sources said the Colts did not make an offer close to what he signed for. 

Ya im sure CB made offer but not nearly as high

Clearly you are speaking to yourself in regards to wishing you had the time back that it took to reply to what we wrote... :funny:

I'm going to believe this tweet over the one you posted. Just seems too far out of character for Ballard to offer MORE than 15.5 per year for Watt.

@CharlesRobinson

Unless the #Colts, #Browns and #Titans are straight up lying, this is not what I’ve been told. I’ve been told by multiple Watt suitors that the $23 million guaranteed in Watt’s Arizona deal was near ceiling for their total $. Teams were trying to get Watt for roughly $12 mil per.

Great point. My main interest in him is the simple fact that his production has fallen off, but at the same time, I feel he was misused in Baltimore. Could be at least worth kicking the tires on him to see if there is value. I would not overpay for him at all. He's a beast in a proper 4-3 though.

    • Hughes really didn't do anything for us when he was here.  He wasn't working out in the 3-4 system and like @SteelCityColthas already said, he was very unhappy here.     In three years in Indy he had 51 tackles and 5 sacks and started just 7 total games.  He wasn't made for the system we were playing and he didn't want to play here anyway.     We got Kelvin Shepard in return who started 7 games (played in 15) and had 46 tackles the lone year here (basically equaling Hughes' 3 year output).     Hughes has gone onto a nice career in Buffalo, by changing position to edge rusher/DE.  Good for him.  Unless we switched to a 4-3 and moved him to a specialty role of edge rusher from the DE position, he would never have produced like that here.     It's easy to look at Hughes' numbers in Buffalo and think we lost out big on him, but the scheme we were running and his attitude in Indy wouldn't have worked out for him or us.  For what he was doing for us, it wouldn't be unreasonable to think he would have been cut and not made our final roster.  Instead we traded him and got decent value back, albeit for only 1 year.
    • The Fredd Young one hurt. We gave up two number 1s and he never really panned out. I'll even say I wasn't thrilled giving up the rights to Cornelius Bennett for Dickerson (although that trade helped put us back on the map) But MAN. Elway. Bob Irsay traded him after waiting a whole 5 weeks to (no hardball there), WITHOUT telling the GM at the time. Worst. trade. ever.
    • Draft position penalizes you for drafting successfully and winning in the previous year(s). I figure the NFL hates their GMs. "Let no good deed go unpunished."
    • Which team cut Kenny Moore because they didn’t think he could play?  Patriots?   Sometimes a change in scenery can work out.  The Bellicheck’s and Gruden’s of the world are not perfect either.
