Recommended Posts

No need to rush ATM not much will happen before draft.Then between draft and season opener plenty of FAs will be available.Think we should wait til we DROP FREENEY LIKE A HOT TATER:)

Mmmmm hot taters, especially with seasoned salt, butter and sour cream.

I pretty much always thought what this article addresses.

Coyer wasn't so much of a problem. His hands were tied.

For all the excellent things Bill did for this franchise, he also did a few things that brought us to where we are now.

amen to that

Definitely agree as well.

I dont think so, we can get Ladarius Green in the 4th

I would love getting Green in the 4th instead of Fleener in the 34th spot. Unless we're planning on using the 2 TE set like the Pats which I would then like to get Fleener AND Green.

I would rather get Jenkins at 34 and Green in 4th which would take care of two needs and add good talent

I think if the Colts don't manage to get Fleener, Shiancoe is definitely worth a look (I'm not saying I want to sign him, but he's good).

So you think he is good; you think we should look at him; but you don't think we should sign him?

They said Peyton would retire a Colt Freeney will leave.

I won't. E shocked at all if he leaves. It he could also re-sign an extention too but it is stupid to pay him this much for a one year deal in a rebuild mode. I could see the team kicking the tires during training camp and how he fits in. If he doesn't fit the scheme or he pouts about it, then u have to do whats best for the team and let him go. 19 mil is too much cap space and 14 mil is over priced. Base salary.

As the article says 19 million is way too much for what Freeney provides and hes killing the 2012 cap.

Pulled up the FA tracker before reading this to look at TE avail. Ones left either have a lot of years in the league, let go for a reason being age or money. Or they are fairly young, but obiously (?) didn';t make an impression on the powers that be. Would just as soon pick up someone in draft though not a lot available, but some in middle rounds.

Yeah, but those contracts are made with the intent to renegotiate in the last year.

There's still time for that.

Green would be a good pickup and better than using the 34th on Fleener IMO, but I don't think there is anyway on Earth that Grigson will pick Jenkins, even if he fell to the 5th rd..

I wonder why no teams have bit on Shianco?

I am pretty sure that Fleener will not be there at the 34th pick and if they could bring a veteran in with good hands before the draft than the Colts could focus on filling the other posts that need filled.

At this point, it's probably the other way around.

Focus on the draft, and use the post draft FA period to fill in positions of need.

Though that doesn't happen if Freeney's contract doesn't get renegotiated, which I still think will happen.

I think he's good and the Colts should take him in for workouts. He may be good, but it doesn't mean he'll fit in well in our new offense. That's what I mean by "take a look."

    • Yeah sort of like Flanker, next to the TE. That would be interesting, he has the talent, size, and speed to do so but his route running is questionable like you basically you said. I do think he makes the 53 so we will see.
    • Something that would be interesting to me is seeing Patmon work at Z if his route running and ball tracking is up to snuff. I think he's fast enough, just not sure he'd be good on cuts. I'd love to see a 9 or backshoulder though.
    • Reggie Wayne used to workout in Miami during the offseason and the league was ok with it and so was Irasy. I don't see the big deal with working out away from the teams facility, several players do it.
    • This is such a cluster.   The NFLPA is really looking out for the veteran players that they feel are established and do not need to go to voluntary things and that they want to protect from excessive team activities etc.   They are 100% not looking out for young or unestablished players trying to crack a roster, keep a job or make a name for themselves.   Also, this stuff is right in contracts. Literally all the players, agents, NFLPA reps know this or should know this. They even have acknowledged that players w $ tied to workout bonuses would likely attend because they are not trying to mess with players' money and livelihood. And yet they did just that by trying to have them work out away from team facilities.   This would totally make sense last year w COVID running crazy. Thinking facilities might not be safe health-wise around a lot of ppl. But this year it was a power grab to try to limit off-season and pre-season workouts and activities.   I always loved the Peyton Manning quote about Marvin Harrison saying "They pay you to practice, the games you play for free. "   At the end of the day this is one of those things where i truly want to feel bad for the players but i have a hard time feeling bad for them. they are just getting terrible guidance and listening to it. hopefully players make wise decisions since this is their livelihood at the end of the day.   I may be in the minority but if it were me id be at the team facility covering my butt and my check lol 
    • Harris could make it too I agree. We have some overall talent here. It will be interesting to see what Reich does.
