Is it a waste to get Melvin as well if his price is reasonable? Probably was either/or..

Good move, glad to have him back.

I see so many weird takes, about how weak we are at CB. But Moore, Desir, and Wilson all played well. Granted it was against mostly bad QBs.

How big of a need to you guys think CB is? Seems to me that safety is a bigger concern, and that we have 3 quality starter-level CBs healthy and on the roster.

I want us to draft a CB in the draft to develop alongside Wilson and Moore as you can never have too many quality CBs.

However, we do need safety help and I fully expect Ballard to sign one in free agency and draft one to go alongside Hooker and Farley.

Walk Worthy,

I think this means Geathers will be back on a one year deal, but SS and CB are both in play beginning in the 2nd round (probably the 2nd pick of the 2).

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.

And from Holder's account, it sounds like the negotiation was completely amicable. Everybody did their job professionally and came to a good resolution.
