    Has anyone figured out what the Colts FA plan is? Most cap space and the best they can do is Funchess?

    Funchess could have a bounce back like Ebron, and at one year, who cares if he doesn’t…

    But $10M for Funchess…are you serious?!?! Golden Tate signed for less than that amount per year. Just when you thought the Colts were making their move towards becoming legitimate contenders, Irsay strikes again! Luck is good enough to make him look decent enough next year but can you imagine what a Luck / Ebron / Hilton / Tate / Mack offense could have done? It is only a 1 year deal but it’s one they will regret when they don’t have enough cap space left to add a legit difference maker prior to the trade deadline.

      Why don’t you wait & see how it works out before you judge. Seems like to me Ballard is probably a much better evaluator than you are, based on his Colts track record.
