Houston releases Duke Johnson and Nick Martin


Recommended Posts

Both have good value, Johnson would be a beast on the turf. Martin was a fantastic player, he's a center but could play guard. Have to think both will get offered more than what we'd pay.

Agreed and I think the bolded is absolutely correct. I don't see the value of these two considering the contracts they'll get and the composition of our roster. Hines occupies the same role that Johnson would play and Martin would be a great addition to the OL, but he'd most likely be a backup unless he could beat out Glow. That would still be way too much money at RG.

Both are good players....   but...
 

One would have to think Martin will start for someone.   And if not start, then be the backup guard where we have Pinter.

 

And as others have noted about Johnson, who I’ve always liked, we have Hines who seems to get better every year.   They’re roughly the same guy.   10-16 touches a game as a situational player.

I don't get why there are a lot of people on this forum that keep entertaining the idea of either signing another RB or drafting one. Okay maybe you draft one in the 6th for "depth or special teams" however the Colts DO NOT need a RB.

 

Taylor, Hines, and Wilkins is all that is needed.

Yeah and the door hasn’t closed on Mack either

Don't forget we did sign a true FB last year as a FA and he was cut at the end.  I wouldn't be surprised if we do it again if one gets released.  Reich still might prefer a true FB on the roster especially if his short yardage guy, Brissett, doesn't come back.

actually i think we should move on from Wilkins and i know Ballard could fine a better upgrade for him:peek:

I'd  like a RB where the dropoff  isn't significant incase Taylor gets hurt.

Wilkins is not that guy and I don't think the colts would want Hines to be the bell cow. 

Mack would be my choice if he isn't slowed down much from his injury. I prefer carry 4 RB's not 3.

If Martin is able to play G and the Colts think Q can really kick out to LT, then this could be a cheaper option then what you will have to pay a LT....that's hoping for a lot to go right though.

    • Is that (Farley) the guy that had lumbar micro discectomy surgery  recently? Even if he does recover well and gets in condition quickly enough to make training camp, there will be teams that will still be wary.  The reason is longevity, and accelerated degenerative issues concerning his back. On the other hand, didn't a certain GM/Team select Bob Sanders in the 2nd round of a draft knowing his playing style would possibly (likely!) shorten his career? Likewise picture another team taking a LB with serious knee/nerve injury with foot drop? (Jaylon Smith).   There are pluses, and minuses, in taking such players.    
    • We've got some decent value at the 5 and dime store.   Great bargains Rhodes Moore   Good bargains TJ Carrie Wilson
    • They are talking about next year's picks, which one (either 1st or 2nd) is conditionally going to Philly. Doubt they can contractually use either in a trade for this year (unless it's with Philly). Perhaps there's contract language that says we can deal our 2nd, but if we do, Philly would automatically get our 1st.
    • What is his role?     So does everybody on the team who doesn't want to be traded because of whatever Easterby did not seeing things as well as Watson and 5 players who were let go by the team?  Why are the 5 seeing it correctly and the 150 not?      
    • Instead of trying to split the atom on how stats are measured, let's keep it simple and just apply basic logic.    Should we not expect a 31 year old to lose speed? Should we not expect a tiny guy who's losing his speed, to struggle getting the same separation he relied on all these years? Even if you disagree with the majority of fans (who think he's slowed), wouldn't the trained eyes of the coaches know better? And if TY still had it (and Rivers was at fault), wouldn't TY get a better/longer deal than 1 year / 8M? Should we believe TY's stats are simply wrong, while most of the other pass catchers are grading better at separation while getting the same balls, by the same QB? Are stats out to get TY, or is Philip just bad throwing to TY and good to everyone else? And nobody saying Rivers is great. But simply other pass catchers are grading better with Rivers, than TY. TY relied on his speed all these years (along with route running). He's losing that speed, and now has to rely on route running (for tough yards) and mismatches (seam and bad DBs) for the majority of his highlights. There's no mystery here. It's just getting harder for him. I really hope he can squeeze one more 1000 yard season out for the Colts.
