Honestly, Ireland did a good enough job squeezing out the 2nd rounder from that trade. Wasn't the first offer a 5th round pick and he worked it all the way up to a 2nd and conditional 6th? I feel like we were the winning side of this trade to be honest.
Marshall not playing much (starting/playing 4 games), while Langford started all 16 games. Marshall got a 3/16 while Langford got a 4/24.
It's very, very likely that Miami is getting at the VERY least a 6th round pick, possibly a 5th depending how they view playing time vs contract.
Vontae has more INTs, almost as many tackles and PDs in 6 fewer games. If he's been a disappointment, what the hell is Sean Smith?
Vontae got off to a slow start and battled injuries as anyone would expect from a DB who changed teams after training camp. As he's learned the system and gotten into shape he's gotten much better throughout the year. He's going into the playoffs as defensive player of the week. It's a rare Colts fan who is regretting that trade now as they'll have a 5 year NFL starter turning 25 and making less than 2 mil starting for them next year.
