Potential Trade Packages, Landing Spots for Seahawks Star DK Metcalf To The colts


Recommended Posts

The wide receiver market has been turned upside-down over the last month, with another superstar target possibly on the move. According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, league executives believe the Seattle Seahawks' DK Metcalf could be traded for "the right price," and the wide receiver "would welcome a change."

I think he's a classless jerk but he's got the kind of talent where he might dominate as he matures as a receiver.  Unbelievable talent but I wouldn't touch him.

Wouldn't touch him? Why not? What has he done/not done?

I dont see the Blue Haired guy in Conservative Indy

 

The draft is full of folks that can help the Colts at WR

 

If we take a swing, let it be at CB and FS

 

 

 

Most NFL players are liberal. If they worried about the states politics we'd never have a team.

Talented player, but the reality that we are now seeing is that WRs may be becoming the new RB position....i.e. while they are important, they are so super expensive and there are so many good ones coming out in every draft that can perform right away that you might be better off replacing them with a young pick than paying them mega money.

 

I think if you have a guy that is a sure-fire bonafide #1 and a top-10 WR then you pay him.

 

And he's gonna get $25M+ per year now with the Hopkins, Adams, Hill, Diggs market now pushing those new deals higher and higher.

 

I am not sure I want to pay Metcalf that.

 

AJ Brown I would. Not DK. Not McLaurin. Not Deebo. And all those guys would cost big draft capital plus a big deal.

 

So again, I think you go with a high draft pick and you hope you hit. 

 

Unless it is a home-grown guy and you are rewarding your own. 

 

Just my humble 2 cents

If Metcalf were to be available for a 7th Rd. Pick and insisted he wanted to be traded to Indy I doubt the colts would pull the trigger.... especially since he would want a expensive extension sooner or later.

It's a shame the colts passed on him in the draft, yeah I know plenty of other teams did too  but it would have been so much cooler to have him instead of Campbell.

Let's hope that we draft a WR in the early rounds of this upcoming draft. I have a feeling though, that Ballard may truly believe in his current receiving corps, which would be a huge mistake. Plus he still needs to address the lack of depth along the O-line, D-line, CBs, TE, and Safety positions.

 

He may end up drafting a WR in the 5th or 6th and bring in undrafted rookies to compete, ala Caine, Fountain, Patmon, (5th & 6th rounders, or Strachan (7th rounder). This has not been a good strategy so far as Pittman (2nd rounder) has been the only successful WR Ballard has drafted.

It'll be sooner for the contract extension. 

 

I'm torn. I know the big concern is the contract, but that is the market. The Colts can sign him to a long term if they so wish. He's averaged 70 catches a year for 3 years and about 1k yards per season going into the prime of his career. 

 

The big question is the compensation. The team is obviously short a 1st rounder this season, if we're talking multiple picks this year then to me the answer is no.

During that draft I was almost screaming wth are these teams doing, he lasted way too long. His big knock was "he hasn't had a lot of production," but that's not all about him, football is a team sport. Regardless there is almost zero chance of this happening. He would cost too much one way or the other and Ballard seems to think he's in great shape with his WRs. If he was going to make a WR FA move, he'd have done it by now. I still wouldn't mind Landry on the team, but we need that "X" WR, a guy with speed (who can stay healthy).

You think hair dye precludes mutual interest in Indy?  Not that I think he'd love it here, but I seriously doubt anyone cares what color a guys hair is by the second or third TD.....

You are probably right. I personally could care less if someone has purple or blue hair.  

 

My sister did purple a few decades ago for a year or so... My daughter di some funky colors when she was in middle school and high school

I bring the pictures out to tease her now :)

 

Im thinking from the players perspective..... Does he see Indy as a home.  It is more conservative than other parts of the country

 

Over all of that, I just dont think CB is going to go after a WR in trade.... its a need, but I just dont see him doing it...

 

We will see

LOL. Cosmetics has nothing to do with politics.

 

Not every bald person is a 'conservative' either. Not everyone with a combover haircut went to an Ivy League school.

Reportedly, the Jets offered the 10th overall pick for Metcalf and were turned down.   I don’t think the Colts have the assets to offer enough.

i would never pay Metcalf the money he wants. Hill is a game changer and more than just a WR.  Metcalf has only one season over 1000 yards. he is a lot of hype and I think his route tree is somewhat limited. He is extremely fast and big but poor hips.   There as so many young guys coming out of college, I dont know why teams pay 20+ million for a wr.

They don't have the assets and I think there are few teams that could fit him under the cap. The Jets can because they have a rookie  qb. He is probably going to want 25 million

I would maybe  pay Deebo mainly because he can be invovled in any play. He is a poor man's Hill. Metcalf is kind of limited in what he can do. He can stretch the field but he not the type of wr to run ten yards plant his feet and do a curl. I dont think he is good at running plays because he is more of a straight line guy and not a lot of wiggle in his hips.

I dont think there is a huge market for DK. Got to send a pick and then sign him to a huge contract. Not a lot of teams able to fit him under the cap. I also think that there are so many Wr's coming out and they  immediately seem to be able to transition to the NFL now a days. Wr's took about 3 years to mature  in the old days, but they are having immediate impact because of schemes being run in the NFL.

Understood….  But the Jets have the picks and the cap space,  so they made the offer. 
 

And Seattle said no thanks.   I wasn’t expecting that.

I think Seattle is just wanting Jets to sweeten the pot. I would never make that trade. I could get Williams at 10 from Alabama.  DK is kind of over rated I feel. He is a vertical threat but he is not in the same class as other elite receivers I feel

Metcalf and Samuel would both change this offense drastically

 

It's funny reading comments in both of the threads about them....


I think very few are arguing that either player isn’t good enough to help.  
 

I think the vast majority are simply saying the cost in draft picks plus large contract extension is just not worth it.

I've seen comments about politics, hair color, people saying he won't be a team changer, and that we're better to take rookies "that are like him"

 

Yes, he'll be expensive to acquire

Yes it's probably a 0% chance Indy gets him

Yes he's going to want to get paid but the market for every position is going up every year. He's well worth the money...

    • Did you get to see the game? KT had sooo much bad luck on soft hits
    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham, Starr, and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's.    Where is Bart Starr? I say Top 20. He wasn't better than Mahomes though IMO.
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
