You have to compete with probably 10 other teams that have the desire to sign him and the cap space to do so. It is not a matter of not wanting to, it is a matter of being the most compelling location for him to want to come to. Money is a big factor but not the only factor.

That said, I hope Ballard is persuasive.

Walk Worthy,

Watkins, Robinson, Norwell....there are some big time players available this year. Would you spend the money to get one or more of the top tiered free agents if possible? If so what is the maximum you would invest in free agency and do you want to spend it on a few 'great' players or maybe sign players on the second level? I'd realistically like to see us get at least one of these dudes. We've got some 70 odd million to spend. Now can the organization make itself attractive to these guys?

Don't want Watkins. I don't think he'll ever be great despite his potential.

If it was me, I would throw everything at Norwell and then try to get one of Richardson/Poe, then Bradham and Bowman, then second or lower tier guys at CB, S, WR, and OT.

Iím a hard pass on Bowman. Colts need more athleticism at LB than what he can give at this stage of his career.

The Colts need a MLB, so if not him, then maybe Hitchens? I'm really just looking for someone better than Morrison and not a rookie.

Walk Worthy,
I understand that. The point was stop fucking around and fix the line!

Totally with you there. I think they want Hitchens because he can play either MLB or WILL depending on how the other position works out.

Hitchens is supposedly a fait accompli to come to the Colts given that they have Eberflus at DC now

I absolutely love Roquan Smith for ILB and if we trade down we could totally get him.

Rashaan Evans in our #2 spot would also be a great pickup there.
