Davante Adams has broken off long term contract talks with the Packers

Imagine if this guy hits the open market what type of contract he would demand.  It’s not Ballard’s style to go out and pay big money for free agents. He pays his own guys first. So I’m gonna go out and say there’s about a 2% chance of him coming to the Colts.

They have paid him over $59 million so far.   I wonder what he is asking for?

Maybe it has something to do with Aaron Rodgers, that Adams doesn't want to play without him as QB. I don't know, just speculating. Green Bay has a lot of issues coming up. The rest of the NFC North must be watching this with interest.

I think at this point I would trade Rodgers and maybe Adams too.    Then have lots of good picks the next couple seasons.

One story I saw said Adams wants to be the highest paid receiver.   The problem is the last two years on DeAndre Hopkins’ deal is 2/54m.   $27m per.   That would more than double his last year.    That’s a huge gap to try and close.

In the middle of the night, I got a Twitter notice.  And I’ll post it here for what little it’s worth, with the emphasis on “little”.    The person was NOT media, but you never know who knows who…..   So,  maybe…. 
 

The trade proposal was this:

 

Green Bay sends Adams to NE.

The Patriots send their 2022 #1, RB Sony Michel and WR N’Keil Harry to the Packers. 
 

If and when a trade goes down, we’ll see how close to reality this is.

Thats dumb. Other than the 1st rounder. Packers don't need a RB and Harry would be valued at no higher than a 5 based on overall performance so far. I mean if thats the case how bout the Colts send our 1st, Parris Campbell, and Marlon Mack? Same trade value.

Dumb or not…..  I’m not endorsing it.  
 

But remember,  Houston gave away Hopkins to Arizona for a 2 and a 4 and a banged up RB (Johnson).

We can't trade next year's first because we probably won't even have it.

You can throw that 1st round pick out the window if Wentz plays 75% of his snaps this season, or he plays 70% of his snaps and we make the playoffs.. There is absolutely NO WAY Wentz doesn't reach those percentages this season with this offensive line and team around him. There is nothing guaranteed in the NFL I know.

GB is a mess right now...they can’t seem to put together a roster, and a lot of their talented guys seem to distrust the organization at best, or want out completely at worst. Rodgers has carried that team for over a decade, and he only has one SB to show for it. GB better get their act together fast, or they’ll be heading for a total rebuild IMO.

I think Adams will play 1 more year for the Pack since Rodgers is back. Adams has 1 year left on his current deal. Rodgers will move on as well after this season, just predictions. They have both called this the last dance so there is the hint right there. GB will be great this year and hungry because of this IMO. If those 2 do indeed play they could win the SB. After this season they will be a mess but ok for now.

Do you think a 1000% it won't happen?

    • Starting on the road 2 games isn’t ideal early in the year with a new qb, I expect this team will block better by the week if healthy. The defense getting the crowd fired up at home is underrated 
    • Our offense has had nothing but issues so far and you hope as the season goes on they build continuity and consistency. We hopefully trend up. Defense hopefully settles down in coverage because so far we look bad playing weak zones. Kenny Moore has not helped at all. I will say again, no pressure spells mediocre defense weak in and weak out. 
    • Kyle Shanahan's answers to those are sweep tosses to the RB (with and without 2 RBs). You typically have 3 LBs defending the run and the SAM LB is on the strong side. The ILB and WLB typically do better East-West. So you run sweep tosses to the strong side and make sure the fastest DB and LB closest to the LOS are taken out first by combo of OL/TE before they disrupt, and expect the RB to beat the SAM LB in a foot race reading the blocks easily to get to the second level.   Kyle Shanahan did that very well vs the Patriots consistently in the first half of that SB as OC of Falcons but went away from it and got pass happy in the second half and went for more interior runs where the bulk of the DL and LBs, that the Pats had plenty of won over in between the tackle runs versus off tackle or sweep tosses that would have worked against their LBs that were weak East-West and in coverage (something Blake Bortles in the 2017 AFCCG almost exploited and Doug Pederson/Foles in 2017 SB did completely exploit), IMO.
    • Right.    Thing is Ryan has made some silly mistakes that seem uncharacteristic for him. For Wentz that is very characteristic.   So I have to believe Ryan will clear that up as the year goes on.
    • You go from Wentz and the Colts are the greatest to ever to Wentz is total trash and the worst QB ever but the Colts are still great because Ryan is one of the greatest ever, but then if it doesn't work out you will be like Ryan sucks but the line is still the greatest because we have a great LG, etc. etc.  But year after disappointing year you always go back to sad sack about the team . It's a flawed team with what seems to me a flawed plan and talent in the wrong areas that is keeping us in a persistent state of mediocrity IMO.  Not here to make you feel good about yourself if feeling good about yourself includes false positivity about this team lol.   Look.  Remaining skeptical.  KC win great.  Probably not a sustainable blueprint for victories.     When I see different evidence I will change my mind as my signature would suggest is my practice.   Relax CBE. You don't have to reply to everyone on every post.  It seems you think you do.  it's not required buddy.
