  Colts | Jimmy Raye in charge of Colts roster for now    Sat Jan 21, 09:26 PM

As reported earlier, Raye will interview for the for the team's general manager job.

  Colts | Peyton Manning not GM candidate for Colts    Sat Jan 21, 06:00 PM

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said former NFL QB Peyton Manning is not a candidate for the team's general manager position.

Footballguys view: Irsay has reportedly been pursuing Manning for an executive role. At this time, Manning is happy spending time with his young kids but we could see him back in football soon.

  Colts | Chuck Pagano to remain head coach    Sat Jan 21, 05:55 PM

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano will return to the team for the 2017 season, according to owner Jim Irsay.

Footballguys view: Pagano is safe for now, but he's most certainly on the hot seat in 2017. He's gone 8-8 each of the last two years, so a playoff run would likely be the only thing that saves his job. The Colts have talent, and they play in the weakest division in football so that is not too tall an order.

  Colts | Jimmy Raye to interview for Colts GM job    Sat Jan 21, 05:54 PM

Indianapolis Colts vice president of football operations Jimmy Raye III will interview for the team's general manager job, according to owner Jim Irsay.

Footballguys view: Raye has an impressive reputation around the league, so moving him up to general manager would make sense. He was a San Diego Chargers Scout (1996-99), Director of College Scouting (2000-07), and later their Director of Player Personnel (2008-12) before joining the Colts as their Vice President of Football Operations in 2013.

  Colts | Chuck Pagano appears to be safe    Sat Jan 21, 03:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano's job is believed to be safe at this time, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Earlier reports indicated that both Pagano and GM Ryan Grigson were safe, but it's Grigson who finds himself out of a job on Saturday. Pagano and Grigson had their clashes, and now Pagano will be in a make-or-break season in 2017...again. He's been on the hot seat for a couple of years and will now have to produce.

  Colts | Ryan Grigson relieved of duties    Sat Jan 21, 03:22 PM

Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson was relieved of his duties Saturday, Jan. 21, according to a source.

Footballguys view: What took them so long? He's failed to put the proper talent around QB Andrew Luck, and Grigson missed on several draft picks and free agent selections. Colts owner Jim Irsay has been trying to get Peyton Manning in some sort of VP of Football Operations role, and getting rid of Grigson opens a door for that to happen.

  Colts | Andrew Luck idle three months    Thu Jan 19, 11:24 AM

Updating an earlier report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will begin throwing in three months, and he'll be ready to return fully in six months.

Footballguys view: We're hoping this fixes whatever has been going on with him the last two years. It would help if the Colts can get him an offensive line as well.

  Colts | Andrew Luck has surgery    Thu Jan 19, 08:18 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) had surgery on his right shoulder Thursday, Jan. 19, for an injury that lingered since 2015, according to owner Jim Irsay. Luck will be ready for the season.

Footballguys view: Luck hasn't been right, physically, in quite a while. Hopefully he will be 100 percent for next season, but unless the team puts an offensive line on the field, he could see more injuries mount up as his career goes on.

  Colts | Peyton Manning offered job in Indy front office    Sun Jan 15, 11:47 AM

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has expressed interest in hiring former QB Peyton Manning to serve as the organization's head of football operations. Irsay was also interested in hiring Jon Gruden to be the head coach but Gruden declined the offer.

Footballguys view: Manning is likely to get into some sort of front office job, but the time has to be right. At this time, Manning is enjoying retirement and spending time with his family.

  Colts | Jack Doyle to be free agent    Sat Jan 14, 03:43 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: A fifth-year UDFA out of Western Kentucky, Doyle came out of nowhere to become one of the key pieces to the passing game. The Colts will likely bring Doyle back because of his strong connection with QB Andrew Luck.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton makes unusual history    Tue Jan 10, 11:11 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton became the first receiving champion since retired Los Angeles Rams WR Torry Holt in 2000 to lead the NFL in receiving yards and not be voted to one of the two Associated Press All-Pro teams. Hilton led the league this season with 1,448 receiving yards.

Free-agent PK Devon Bell (Lions) signed a Reserve/Future deal with the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 7. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.


  Colts | Chuck Pagano returning    Fri Jan 6, 08:21 AM

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has been assured he'll return as head coach for the 2017 season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Colts are keeping Pagano, and that comes as a surprise to many...maybe even the veteran head coach himself. With a 49-31 record during his time as the Colts head coach, Pagano and GM Ryan Grigson have been in a funk over the last two seasons. They've missed the playoffs in back-to-back seasons, finishing with an 8-8 record each year. We could see 2017 as the 'last hurrah' for both coach and general manager.

  Colts | Chuck Pagano expects to remain in Indy    Tue Jan 3, 12:46 AM

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Monday, Jan. 2, that he expects to remain with the team, believing there isn't 'any reason (he) wouldn't be.' He has yet to have his have his annual season-ending meeting with owner Jim Irsay.


  Colts | Indy signs several players     Mon Jan 2, 03:10 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Lavar Edwards, WR Marcus Leak, S Stefan McClure, CB Tevin Mitchell, QB Stephen Morris, OG Adam Redmond and WR Tevaun Smith were signed to Reserve/Futures contracts Monday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: Leak is arguably the most interesting player here. Undrafted out of Maryland in 2016, Leak hadn't played football since 2014 and needed time to get his game back on track. Smith has sticky hands and can accelerate past coverage on longer routes. Both Leak and Smith are interesting prospects to keep an eye on in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton posts career high    Sun Jan 1, 08:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted six receptions for 95 yards on 12 targets in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and is the first Colts player to win the receiving title since Reggie Wayne in 2007.

  Colts | Andrew Luck over 4K yards again    Sun Jan 1, 08:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed 24 of his 40 pass attempts for 321 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He went over 4,000 passing yards for the third time in five NFL seasons.

Footballguys view: Luck was banged up again this year and offensive line had problems, but he was much better than 2015 and restored himself to the fantasy elite quarterback ranks.

  Colts | Frank Gore makes NFL history    Sun Jan 1, 07:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore rushed 16 times for 62 yards in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, becoming the fourth player in NFL history to top 1,000 yards at age 33 or older. He is the oldest since former Washington Redskins RB John Riggins achieved the feat in 1984, and first 1,000-yard rusher for the team since RB Joseph Addai in 2007.

Footballguys view: Gore benefited from Andrew Luck being healthy all year. It's hard to see the Colts turning to him as the lead back at 34, but his cost is a reasonable 3.5 million, so he could be a big part of a committee with a free agent or rookie back.

The Indianapolis Colts have declared C Austin Blythe, CB Darius Butler, LB Deiontrez Mount, WR Donte Moncrief, OT Jeremy Vujnovich, DL Kristjan Sokoli, CB Rashaan Melvin inactive for Week 17.

Footballguys view: Jack Doyle could do more as a possession receiver with Moncrief out.

  Colts | Robert Mathis set to retire    Fri Dec 30, 01:46 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis has told teammates he intends to retire following the team's Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Even though he's struggled this season, Mathis has been a top-flight pass-rusher for years in the NFL. At this time, Mathis has 122 career sacks which ranks 18th all time. A fifth-round draft pick in 2003, Mathis has spent his whole career with the Colts and has one Super Bowl ring to show for it.

  Colts | Frank Gore full go    Thu Dec 29, 05:10 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (rest) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Gore is likely to make a strong push to crack 1,000 yards and given his age and the relative ineptitude of the offensive line, we should applaud him for it. It's a good matchup for him this weekend, so we expect him to get far more than the 36 yards he needs to reach that goal.

  Colts | Andrew Luck added to injury report    Thu Dec 29, 05:06 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: We think this is just a day off, but we will watch the practice reports tomorrow. Luck has a nice matchup against Jacksonville, and would be a solid starter this weekend if he plays, given how the Jags offense has been inconsistent.

  Colts | Donte Moncrief absent again    Thu Dec 29, 05:00 PM
