Indianapolis Colts: Predicting the Colts’ Free-Agent Signings

Posted By Andy Konty On March 5, 2013 @ 12:41 am In Colts News | No Comments

With the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine out of the way, the Indianapolis Colts [1] turn their attention to the free-agent market.

In the next seven days, we should get word on which current Colts get re-signed.

On Monday, March 12, the NFL free-agent period opens up and teams can start negotiations with any free agent in the league. 

The Colts will certainly be looking to upgrade their offensive line.  With Ryan Grigson’s stated preference [2] for veteran offensive linemen, the Colts will not be rebuilding their O-line through the draft.

They will surely draft some offensive linemen, but they need help in 2013 and will have to plunge into the turbulent waters of NFL free agency.

Indianapolis may also write some big checks for top talent at the rush linebacker position to replace All-Pro Dwight Freeney. 

In addition, we should expect them to throw a little money at the defensive secondary, where they will surely be drafting some young talent.

Finally, the Colts need a veteran backup QB to be on call for the inevitable day when Andrew Luck stays down.  They will not risk their season with a stable of backup QBs carrying zero NFL snaps on their resume.
