Love you T.Y!!!!!!!!!  

About doggone time...   TY is one of my all time favorite Colts. I'm very happy he's staying. Not only do I think he can still play -- he's not TY of 2014, but he can still be effective -- i

Colts can wait until day 3 now to draft another WR

I would be shocked if they drafted one earlier thrn the 4th round. We are loaded on offense. Not to mention Fountain, Patmon, Dulin, and Harris.

There are some here that feel a WR should be drafted Round 1

True Pillar of the franchise. Good for you T.Y.
 

Go get you (and us) a championship. Regardless, he will always be a legend in Indianapolis. Here’s to hoping for a healthy and highlight stacking finish to your career, all with a horseshoe on

Could happen. My feeling with Ballard over the years has been that he stacks needs in FA and goes best available on the board for the draft. I think he trades down. I think if the BPA is a WR, he pulls the trigger. Who saw him picking JT early in the 2nd last year?

 

Wouldn't shock me.

He missed over half the games in 2013

We’ll, his 2012 was epic and it flowed into 2013.  Was just going off the top of my aged head.

I know it’s a great class of WR’s.  And for the 2nd year in a row.   But, personally, I think there are four rare and obvious first round receivers.   Chase, Smith, Waddle and Pitts.  He’ll be a tight end for most teams, but some teams will view him as a jumbo receiver mismatch.    So, four great guys.

 

But after that, the order of everyone else I think will be different for every team.   A couple more will go in the first...  but then 4-6 will go in R’s 2, 3, and 4.   There are just so many good receivers.  
 

Remember, last year the first two players at the top of R2 were Higgins and Pittman, who were both good.   And the best was Claypool who was taken in the 50’s.   Crazy deep last year and this year.

I think a few guys could also go Round 1

Yeah...   they could.   I’m just not sure any of them should.   I think they all have qualities that will be similar to guys who go in the second round.   I like all those guys, but I don’t know that I love any of them.   Certainly not sure I love them as first round guys. 
 

That’s my view as of today.   All subject to change as this insane off-season continues.

It appears most of this forum hasn't watched Bateman enough

This is my first post on the colts forums and I hope I do not embarrass myself with hyperbole.That being said... 

 

Fanatics of teams are defined as a  enthusiastic devotee or a ardent admirer. 

 

In the Era of free agency and player empowerment a player spending their entire (or even majority of) career has become exceedingly rare. 

 

TY Hilton reportedly took less money to remain with OUR team, the Indianapolis Colts.  

 

In a Era of negativity, doubt,and incredulousness we should celebrate this moment and TY for doing what is becoming more rare in sports and culture in general. And that is loyalty to the team, city, and fans. 

 

TY may not have the year some fans want from him, and may exceed what others imagine. 

 

But that isn't what today is about. We should celebrate a player that has given us so many great sports memories over so many years. 

 

A player that more than likely turned down millions of dollars to remain with OUR team. 

 

I would like to say that I would do the same for my team. But if I am being completely honest, with millions of dollars on the line, I don't know if I would have done the same. I would hope we ALL can agree it would be a heavy choice no matter the outcome. 

 

Its my sincere hope that we show him the loyalty and appreciation he showed the fans today. 

 

I have always been a TY fan, but today I thank him for taking the the road less traveled.

Yes, signing a slow washed up TY Hilton will certainly move the Colts needle up. Not! Perhaps we will draft two receivers and cut him before the season starts.

He has a fair amount of support here as far as I can tell.    As for me personally, yes, I need to watch more tape.   But the reviews I read say late first, or early to mid second round.   I think the odds are he goes in the first.

 

But I’d much rather go LT, then DE, 1-2.  I think we can find a quality WR in the mid rounds.

We’ve guaranteed TYH $8 million of his $10m.

 

The chances we’re cutting him are close to zero.

This just feels good and right.  T.Y. belongs in Indy.  The Ghost is back...let’s go! 
 

 

Now the question is will they still host the Watkins visit and consider adding him too?  I wouldn’t mind some Paris Campbell insurance.

Not to mention Patmon who has been working with Wentz already and Harris who far surpassed anything anyone expected last season and Ashton Dulin.  We have our 7 guys fighting for 6 spots as of now, not sure we bring in any f.a. vets nor draft a wr.   We have Gary Jennings, Quartney Davis and J.J. Nelson also as options if an injury pops up.......WR room is full

You can’t get fleeced on a one year deal lol.

Honestly  doesn't  matter if we go de or Lt  first. I think we go de first as they like the tackle depth and we need an impact de. If there is no impact de they will go Lt

 Unfortunate. And very generous. But showing some Loyalty has it's own value down the road.

I think given the fact that he was not gobbled up in the 1st wave of free agency  shows how teams feel about him at this point in his career. Good move for the Colts.

Our wide receivers are not good at all.

Hilton,  Pittman,  pascal, and Campbell  are good,but after those 4 are question  marks and if Campbell  gets hurt again he's  probably  done as a colt. May need another playmaking  wr in draft to be on safe side

Rondale Moore did well in his performance but I read a lot that he has brick hands

I agree, he got a damn good deal. I know he knows our system and is a good captain. I hope he can play to the level of this contract.

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
