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.

    • 3 Bests:   1. Quenton Nelson (OG) - this should be a run away and a no brainer. He redefined our O.Line and gave it attitude. The guy is an all-pro and will go down as one of the best OG's of all-time if he plays 10 years or so.   2. Darius Leonard (LB) - same draft, the guy has way overachieved already, some were saying he would be a bust and was one of the worst picks in the draft. The guy is flat out awesome, with a capital A!   3. Jonathan Taylor (RB) - Ballard flat out nailed this one! Some in here were saying the guy reminds him of Trent Richardson during the 1st half of the season, you know who you are  . This guy has the potential to be an all-time great. He reminds me of Henry in a lot of ways, his power and speed are unreal.   3 Worsts - a lot of this is where they were drafted as well:   1. Ben Banogu (LB) - in his 2 year career he has produced only 2.5 sacks, only 9 solo tackles, and only 1 fumble recovery in 25 games. For a 2nd Round pick at 49 that is bad.   2. Tarell Basham (DE) - he only played 16 games in a Colts uniform before being traded to the Jets. It was a wasted 3rd Round pick at #80  . He had 2 sacks and only 6 solo tackles in his brief Colts career.   3. Quincy Wilson (CB) - in 29 games with the Colts, he just looked lost. His play was bad. He did have 2 INT's and 48 solo tackles so I have him 3rd worst. For a 2nd Round pick at #46, he was very disappointing.  
    • How so?      One of those articles is by the Washington Post?
    • I have us winning on opening day, we usually don't but I do. I really don't have a good reason for it other than I think catching Seattle early is good and being at home are reasons.   Early line in Vegas has us at a 2.5 point favorite which basically means they think the game is even. Usually when the visiting team is a 2.5/3 point underdog that means they see it as even. The home team usually gets 3 points.
