Go in a different direction and sign Clowney.  Skip the easy way out and make a bold move.  But I bet we sign Houston.

 

Imo, the colts are gonna wait til after the draft for Houston depending on how it falls.

That seems like a risky position to me especially when it's been reported he is visiting teams next week.   But who knows signings have really cooled of in the ER market.

There are still other vet edges like Kerrigan, Ingram, Aldon Smith and Clowney

CLOWNEY  please    

 

Clowney hasn't done anything since he left Houston. I'd rather take a flyer on either Ingram or Smith

Teams don't have to worry about Ingram and Smith.  Clowney on the other hand is a problem for them.  He's a flyer.  A potential home run.  That's why I would rather have him.  Not the same old same old like Houston, Ingram or Smith.  There is no upside potential with either of those guys.  Only downward.

Clowney has never lived up to his #1 draft status

Aldon Smith was actually very productive for the cowboys. It's worth a look imo

So what. He's not alone by any means.

Hes gonna have to lower his expectations value and contract wise tremendously to CB to even consider him

Hopefully Ballard is.  Going with the status quo is the easy and presumably safe way out.  Time for an attempt at an upgrade.

Ballard was in the running last year.  New year new circumstances for all parties.  All I know running it back with a player who is older and slowing down isn't appealing to me.

I'm fine with Turay and rookie at this point

Not me.  Freeney didn’t start until almost mid season his rookie year.  None of the ER’s are in Freeney’s class.  I would much rather pay Clowney 10m vs 7 or 8 m for Houston.  Pulling the numbers out of the air but you get my point.  We need another veteran no question.

I thought we would be interested just like last year.  It does appear the Browns are going to win out this year unless Ballard tries to make a move today which would appear to be unlikely knowing how Ballard has operated in FA.

I'm sure he lands in Cleveland

Depends on who they consider OT. If a team considers someone like Vera-Tucker an OT, no particular order: Sewell, Slater, Darrisaw, Vera-Tucker, Jenkins, Cosmi, Little, Leatherwood....... Rodunz, Eichenberg. Here... 10.

Washington signed international player Sammy Reyes TE who scored perfect 10 out of 10 RAS score at Florida pro day. 
 

I was hoping Ballard would give him a shot, with his athletic ability I could see him be a good receiving TE in a year or two

More details on the financials. Breakdown of how much is incentive-based will be interesting. But still a good deal for him and shows that Edge guys are still getting paid even this late in the game.

    • I wasn't really sold on Tomlin at first. I hated the tampa 2. Hated it especially against brady. So to tie all this in. They way you beat Brady is one of two ways. Lock down corner, or take his * down. Well we didnt have none of that because Belichick had the best offensive line in football for a while there. I mean... I hate to drop this here but... also the tuck rule. Not that I have any particular love for oakland but sad to see the A's window shopping.   Anyway they regulated that style of football out of existence. Pay ur bigs up front, score points, dont overpay for a QB. Thats how the NFL works now. If Fisher comes back and is solid, screw it pay em all.
    • I've read several things on the topic, a lot which was mostly rumor and hypothesis.    My uneducated gut feel is.... MW kid goes to East Coast, to a team with fans who have a certain rep. Maybe a little culture shock Had early success, but maybe felt a little disrespected or uneasy in the whole Foles situation. The roster was up and down post 2017 for various reasons He got really frustrated given the injury and personnel issues last year Fans and team mates got frustrated Perfect storm/blend of everyone unhappy   Overall, I think Indy is a much better personality and cultural fit for Wentz. He's already bought land for hunting and seems pretty happy to acclimate. That could be huge in itself (acclimate, not just hunting land). And I think Indy fans will identify with a guy like him more than Philly did. IMO, he's more "Indy" than Luck. If he performs near Luck's level, fans will be happy, he'll be happy, and he'll be a Colt for a long time. I think the combo of the improved roster, and what I predict will be Reich's conservative play calling early, will likely give him a huge and quick boost in DVOA. I would not be shocked at all to see him jump immediately to top 16. If all of our starting WRs stay healthy, I can see top 10. IMO his biggest thing is just staying healthy and gelling with is pass catchers.   I'm a fan of DVOA, but it can be overly negative to QBs on teams that run the ball a ton, or are conservative with a lot of short passing.   Top 16 to make the playoffs, top 7ish to go far. The $s don't bother me. The $ plus picks make it a bet that needs to pay off.
    • Hey, I was so positive that Frank Reich, who gave career years for Luck and Rivers on several fronts, could even work with Sam Darnold and Trubisky if the Colts were to sign one of them. So you can definitely extrapolate what I think of what he could do with Wentz that I feel has more potential.  
    • IDK. Doubt he would have drafted as many if he had hit on one lol. His track record is pretty poor. And Lewis was a tweener, so I kind of remove him from the pure Edge picks.   And he actually said the 3T was the most important part of our D, yet he waited a good while to address.   I'm a big Tomlin fan btw.
