Dang, if those numbers are true that is a really good deal for the team. CB1 or CB1A for less than $8m a year? Nicely done, Ballard.

Walk Worthy,

Glad he is back. This, to me, is a huge signing. Not because Desir is invaluable (he is good but not exceptional) but because of what it says about Ballard. The man tells the truth. He said he wanted Desir. He said he would let him check out free agency to set what he is worth. Then he signed him. Desir may have given us a discount, however it is obvious that he wants to stay where he has had success. This bodes well for us as a team in future negotiations with guys we sign to a show me contract. If they produce, they have a home.

As Disc mentioned, Schefter reports Desir's contract as a 3-year, $25 million deal that includes $12 million guaranteed

Even with the slightly higher number, still a good deal

It's the reward he deserves. He came back last year on a show me and he showed them. He shut down Hopkins in the late game and in the playoff game. We will see that guy two times a year and that's why Ballard spent the money.

It tells anyone else, Ballard/Colts pay off on show me contracts. It's smart for the locker room, smart money for the cap and the fans will love it. I for one love guys who play their butts off and make plays.

He gets his money, Colts get their man, he doesn't need to relocate his family and the D backfield looks really good. Everybody wins, which makes it a good deal.
