If a player is under contract with a team, they talk to another team without their team's permission, that is considered tampering. The team that owns the rights to that player has to provide permission for that player to speak to other teams. A no trade clause doesn't give a player a blanket ability to talk to any team they want at any time. It just means they control where they go and can't be traded unless it's to a team they want to be traded to.

 

Here is an article that painfully details how the Wilson trade went down:

https://www.si.com/nfl/2022/03/14/mmqb-russell-wilson-trade-negotiations-tom-brady-unretires

 

In short, the two GMs were the ones that had been working on a deal for a long time and once they agreed on a trade package, the Seahawks granted permission for Wilson to fly to Denver to meet with their FO.

You may be right but I am not sure because everyone is talking with everyone haha Backing Up Full Body GIF by Justin

We're in the "legal tampering" period where teams can talk to all Unrestricted Free Agents, even though any deals agreed upon can't be finalized until the new league year (4pm on 3/16).

Sage from ESPN just ask Jeff Saturday who the best QB would be for us. He said Jimmy G. I guess he knows nothing either lmao . I agree with him but I would take Winston over him. Saturday said what he said for the same reasons I have been saying it. He fits our offense.

So I was wrong in my thought. Same money, BUT:

 

Randy Gregory best year is 6 sacks. He gets 70 million dollars, 14 million a year.

 

Fans here think Kemoko Turay sucks and he got 5.5 last year playing much less snaps. 

 

And this is the circus you want us to invest in?

 

No thanks.

 

I want them to land a pass rusher and a LT. But if they invested 110 million dollars in Randy Gregory and Joseph Noteboom I cant say I would be too happy.

I would give a mid rounder for Jimmy but they want much more than that.

Washington's 3rd rounder would be fine with me if they are planning on Jimmy starting at least 2 years for us, good ROI. Even Washington's 3rd rounder and our next year's 3rd rounder would be fine, considering they gave up a 1st and 3rd for Wentz for 1 year. If they believe in the player, they should do the trade. If Jimmy's shoulder keeps him from playing games, they can make one of those 3rd rounders conditional too, IMO.

I suspect Ballard would do that as well.

 

I just get the impression the 9ers are taking this down to the wire and there might be a team out there desperate enough to give them a 2nd.

Texans are letting DeShaun Watson meet with the "49ers" who already have 2 QBs, trying to drive up the price for Watson, lol. :) 

 

This, despite Watson saying yes just to 2 teams - Saints and Panthers.

Sacks aren’t everything for a DE. Randy is much better in the run game

I liked Gregory a lot for the Colts but I knew deep down they weren’t spending that type of money on a guy with his history.  Someone must have reminded Gregory that weed is legal in Denver not Texas. 

NFL doesn’t even test for THC anymore to my knowledge. I know for a fact certain players use it

My point is that he was severely overpaid.

 

If the Colts drafted Randy Gregory and got that production in return fans would call him a bust. And if we signed him, and he didnt increase his sack production, he would be called a big mistake in a year.

 

He isnt really any better than Kwity Paye.

 

This is why I prefer the draft

Nobody said they wanted to bring in Randy Gregory. I'm just posting some of the deals as they've come in.

And my statement wasnt about Randy Gregory as much as it was defending the idea that its not wise to overspend on average players like Randy Gregory.

Heard a commentator say that Armstead is taking it slow because he would like to remain with the Saints if possible.  

He might be waiting to see if they will trade for Watson.

I don’t know how they can pay both tbh. It’s wild how some of these teams make it work while others can’t

Shaq Mason has been one of the best guards in the league for the last 3-4 years... that's how valuable guards are in the game. 

A veteran to take Ali Marpet’s spot after he just retired.  Nice move.

    • There have been a number of people throwing the idea around that Leonard is done and drawing correlations to the Luck injury. While the Colts have not exactly been the most transparent with the handling of these sorts of injuries and player status' in the past, Leonard did not look like the type of person who is mentally checked out while he was on the sideline yesterday.  I really think that adding him to this defense will provide a big spark, it's just a matter of when will that be? He has been a full participant in practice for a few weeks now, is his anticipated return going to be vs the Titans? We obviously won't know the answer to that until he actually takes the field and isn't ruled out,  The good news is that, even if he misses the Titans game too, our defence currently has the lowest YPC allowed in the NFL a 2.6, which is quite frankly phenominal. We are almost built to take care of the Titans this year since they have lost AJ Brown and Henry is their most dangerous option. Also, while our offense has looked bad, the Titans' offense has been just as bad, if not worse. Their YPC on offense is at 3.5 and they have 100 less passing yards total as well through 3 weeks... and that is with us completely cratering vs Jax too. All in all though, my main point is that Leonard doesnt look like someone who is about to retire or quit playing the game, and even if he isnt back yet, we should be good on paper (geez how dangerous has that phrase been so far this season though) without him for another week.
    • Nice post(s) above.    Plain and simple. Never caught the ball.
    • This ought to be fun.    2 posters who like to have the last say in any back and forth - @Nickster and @2006Coltsbestever     I remember the @Nickster @NewColtsFan popcorn show. Another show I also enjoy is @EastStreet and @DougDew when it comes to Frank Reich.    All in good jest guys. Without you all, this forum wouldn't be enjoyable.    Keep doing what you are doing. Life would be boring if we were all cookie cutter clones of each other. 
    • He can execute an offense if he's given protection. He turns into liability when our OL plays as miserably as it has been playing this year so far.
