The team’s top receiver got several boosts to his free agency outlook.

The Indianapolis Colts should have always planned to bring Michael Pittman Jr. back on a new contract after his rookie contract ended at the end of the year. He showed his value by stepping up as the number one receiving threat on the team. He set a career high in yards even after missing the game against the Falcons. I believe they still will be able to find a way to bring him...

Could the Colts land the top tight end prospect in this year’s draft class, who’s even drawn comparisons to former franchise great Dallas Clark?

According to NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah, the Indianapolis Colts could have some speculated interest in prized Georgia tight end Brock Bowers early in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft—and even went as far as to compare him to Horseshoe great Dallas Clark:

For the first time in a long time, the Colts won’t be using the offseason to find a quarterback

Jenna Watson-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts have their starting quarterback on the roster. That is a new but refreshing feeling.

For years, the Indianapolis Colts have entered the offseason in need of a starting quarterback. Sometimes the need was driven by circumstances outside their control. Other times, it was driven by a lack of their own ability to assess the situation or player. Whether you believe Anthony Richardson is the long term answer or if you still have doubts, he will be...

How the Colts’ defensive line looks like going into the offseason

Players: DeForest Buckner, Samson Ebukam, Kwity Paye, Dayo Odeyingbo, Adetomiwa Abebawore, Eric Johnson, Grover Stewart (UFA), Tyquan Lewis (UFA)

Starting off with the outside players, and first of all with the most productive of them Samson Ebukam. He was signed in free agency probably because of his ability and consistency to defend the run, but he finished the year with the most...

The Colts need to keep Zack Moss

Robert Scheer/IndyStar / USA TODAY NETWORK

In terms of his monetary value, there probably wasn’t a better value running back in 2023 than Zack Moss. In 8 starts and 14 games played in 2023, Moss had 210 touches for 986 yards and 7 touchdowns. When Jonathan Taylor did not play, he averaged 18 touches for 76 yards and 0.33 touchdowns. For reference, in games where Taylor played without restriction, he averaged 21 touches for 99 yards and 1 touchdown per game. So while Moss’s yards numbers...

The Indianapolis Colts have multiple positions being mocked to them at pick 15 in the 2024 NFL Draft.  A popular position being looked at is corner, and one of the top corners in this year's class had some disappointing news released today.  Cooper DeJean, out of Iowa, is arguably the most versatile defensive back in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Re-signing MPJ is the Colts’ #1 priority this offseason, and they should give him whatever money he wants to remain with the team. Even if he is not up there with the top tier echelon of wide receivers like Chase, Diggs, Jefferson, etc. Pittman is still just a little step below them,...

Is it finally time for the Colts to take down the AFC finalist banner?

Is this the year the banner comes down? Will it ever?

I visited Lucas Oil Stadium last weekend to watch Tyrese Haliburton and his teammates participate in the NBA All-Star festivities. As I found my seat in what is a fantastic stadium, my eyes couldn’t help but glance up towards the rafters. I saw AFC South banners and of course the Super Bowl Championship banner. Those were nice, but my view was immediately tainted by the eyesore that is the 2014 AFC...
