The Colts rollover from 2018 was $49.1 million which gives them $237.3 million to spend in 2019. 

https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/cap/

per spotrac the Colts have $134.8 million in contracts currently in place. Until the cut down to the 53 man roster only the top 51 contracts count towards the cap. So they sit at about $130.4 leaving approx $107 million in cap space.

Plenty of room to add an impact player or 2.Wonder if the team could get Bell or Brown to sign on with the team?

With all the cap room.....

 

 

there has been plenty of talk of the Vikings trading Trae Waynes. On a 5th year contract possibly looking for an extension.

 

in all honestly he out performed Rhodes this past year. Excellent in man coverage and is way above average with his tackling in the run game.

 

how well would a man corner help the colts defense? Or are y’all more of a zone concept team?

Colts run mostly zone scheme. With some man looks. Pierre Desir did a lot of man coverage going up against #1 WRs (especially against Nuke Hopkins and Amari Cooper) last year. 

Ballard didn’t draft a CB last year (drafted 2 in ‘17) so I think we take one (2nd or 3rd rd). A lot of the talk is the coaches are happy with Desir, Kenny Moore and Quincy Wilson. All 3 are under contract until at least 2020. Moore (24 at the start of season) and Wilson (23) are both young and all 3 made huge jumps last year.

I was wondering how Quincy was looking. Never really heard much of him (as a Vikings fan).

For a Waynes trade I think most Vikings fans would all expect a 2-3 for him, knowing most likely next year he should net towards a 3rd round comp pick if he stays healthy. 

Hard to imagine if you’re running mostly Zone schemes he would be a fit, he struggled quiet a bit in the limited amount of time our outside corners are playing Zone. Most of the time him and Rhodes are just matching 1 vs. 1 with outside WR’s.

When Mike Mitchell came in mid season last year, Wilson said he noticed how easy it was for Mitchell to adapt to the defense. So he talked to him about it. Mitchell basically showed him how to watch film from a DB POV.

In half of a season he made twice the progress of his first year and a half. Plus he was out of shape coming into camp his first year which is why he was barely seen.
