The Colts season ended this weekend with a 3 point loss to the Buffalo Bills and Indy fell just short of an AFC South title finishing with an 11-5 record. We probably aren’t going to see major changes from the Colts this offseason but they do have a number of big free agents coming up including Philip Rivers, T.Y. Hilton, Jacoby Brissett, Justin Houston, Marlon Mack, Malik Hooker, Anthony Walker, Xavier Rhodes and Denico Autry.
The biggest question for the Colts will be finding a long-term fit for the quarterback position. The Colts could bring Phillip Rivers back but he likely only has one more year left and then you are right back in the same position next off-season. Another name that has been tied to the Colts is Eagles’ QB Carson Wentz. Wentz reportedly wants out of Philly and played at an MVP level when Colts’ coach Frank Reich was his offensive coordinator.
The Colts could use their 1st round draft pick on a QB. Zach Wilson from BYU, Trey Lance from ND State and Kyle Trask from Florida are all trending to be selected near that 21st pick. The Colts also will still have a QB on their roster that they drafted last year, Jacob Eason.
While there might not be any major roster changes for the Colts this off-season it will still be a very important one for Chris Ballard and his staff again.
