Last year the Colts signed 2 players(from other teams)  on the first day of free agency, Eric Ebron and Denico Autry. I’m pretty happy with how that turned out. 

I think the whole post is about reaching the cap floor right? There’s spending smart and then needing to get there

The base salary cap is $188.2 million, 89% is $167.5 million (aka the cap floor) . The Colts rolled over $49 million from last year but that doesn’t count into the equation for spending. 

According to OTC, the Colts active spending is $141 million. That number doesn’t include Funchess’ contract or draft picks. 

I think they’ll be fine.

Yeah, but you were a playoff team with 100million to spend and you've done very little. You could have signed leveon and some other defenders to make a Superbowl run. 

You still may go on a Superbowl run, but the window of opportunity is there and in the NFL that window doesn't stay open long

Let's add Houston to the list. The OL is the worst in football, the secondary was abused by some bad QBs, but you filled some holes at most. And you're determined to let one of your best three players play on a Franchise Tag. All while having $75mm in cap space.

There’s a lot of teams who just sat on their hands. It’s starting to become like baseball. The rookie cap makes it not worth paying for vets.

The only thing is that you HAVE to hit on every draft pick. There is no room for error, you can't miss if this is what you're going to do.

If the Texans draft another Xavier Sua Filo at 23, you need to fire the FO - because the fallout from busting on that pick could have been mitigated with a value FA signing to hedge your bet.

I agree with you, but GMs have egos. They probably believe every pick they make will pan out in some way or else you don’t pick a guy lol

This is different than baseball, record (and reckless) contracts were given out very quickly to the top players. Even mid tier players are getting sizeable contracts.

If a New York team made the playoffs they couldn't just sit on like $80  million in cap space. Too mush public and media pressure

Define very little. 

Colts have, since the season ended, re-signed Mark Glowinski, Adam Vinatieri, Margus Hunt, Pierre Desir, Ross Travis, Chrsi Milton tendered contracts to 3 RFAs and 2 ExRFA. That’s nearly $21 million against the cap. And that doesn’t include Funchess contract or draft picks.

this is actually true. Paying low level FAs and collect additional draft picks through compensation is the way to go. Just not a big enough difference in level of play between a 3-4 APY low level FA and a mid level FA who wants 10-12 APY.

Did you see what happened to the Colts when they went up against the Chiefs. The same Chiefs that boast no real defense? The Colts are more than an impact player away from being competetive. They need to build smartly and not overspend for one or two years before all their good players come up for contracts and they need to start cutting guys. 

Ballard pretty much spelled this out already. Don't worry they are on the right track. The answer is to not be impulsive.

But nobody sees that. And it's no fun. They need to be connected to every big free agent the whole time or they suck and aren't doing anything.

Lack of reliable WR2, no Doyle, no pass rush, but it was also a mixture of bad game planning from Reich's coaching staff.

They'll bounce back.

LOL, like for the losses by Peyton, already start blaming everything on coaches.

Remember, no team won SB when coaches were treated like b1tches.
