  Colts | Earl Okine signs    Tue Mar 3, 02:52 PM

Free-agent DE Earl Okine (Texans) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, March 3.

Footballguys view: Okine played in the Fall Experimental Football League and the Arena League after he played in college for the Florida Gators from 2009-2012. The Colts have gone outside the normal avenues of finding players before as GM Ryan Grigson has a lot of CFL ties. At 6'6" 285 pounds, Okine is a player to watch.

  Colts | Indy a suitor for DeMarco Murray?    Mon Mar 2, 08:20 PM

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray could be targeted by the Indianapolis Colts in free agency this offseason. General manager Ryan Grigson has $40 million to spend, and the Colts are in need of a running back after the failures of RB Trent Richardson.

Footballguys view: There's been buzz about the Colts making a run at free agent RB Frank Gore. However, adding Murray would be a better option. If Murray goes to the Colts, they are even strong Super Bowl contenders in 2015.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne undergoes surgery    Fri Feb 27, 04:32 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (triceps) recently underwent surgery on his triceps and has started his rehab. Wayne still has not decided if he will play in 2015.

Footballguys view: Wayne needs to first decide if he's going to play or retire. He tore his ACL in 2013 and his triceps in 2014, and Wayne is not getting any younger. He's not the same player he used to be, and the Colts should be looking to move on without him.

  Colts | Indy a trade option for Adrian Peterson?    Fri Feb 27, 02:33 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be a trade target for the Indianapolis Colts. QB Andrew Luck hasn't had a successful running game behind him so far in Indianapolis. However, Colts running backs not named RB Trent Richardson averaged close to 5.0 yards per carry in the last two seasons.

Footballguys view: The Colts are certainly in a Super Bowl window. Adding Peterson would make a ton of sense. If they can't get Peterson, then adding a free agent veteran like Frank Gore could work.

  Colts | Andrew Luck praises backup    Thu Feb 26, 11:46 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck praised QB Matt Hasselbeck for helping the offense in variety of ways. 'I lean on him every week,' Luck said. 'He is a huge part of helping me prepare, helping this offense prepare. He's a great sounding board for any player on our offense. He has the answer to just about every question.'

Footballguys view: Keeping Hasselbeck around is a wise move for the Colts. They are in a Super Bowl window, and they need solid veteran insurance behind Luck--and that's exactly what Hasselbeck is.

  Colts | Matt Hasselbeck returning    Thu Feb 26, 07:39 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck was re-signed to a one-year deal Thursday, Feb. 26. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A good move for the Colts. They have playoff hopes in 2015, so having a solid veteran backup behind Andrew Luck just makes a ton of sense.

  Colts | Mike C. Adams wants to stay in Indy    Thu Feb 26, 07:24 AM

Free-agent FS Mike C. Adams (Colts) wants to stay with the Indianapolis Colts, according to a radio interview.

Footballguys view: Adams could generate some interest on the open market because of his Pro Bowl season in 2014 with the Colts. We think the Broncos would consider bringing him back (he played for them in 2012-2013) if they let Rahim Moore leave in free agency. The Colts would be wise to lock up Adams if they can.

  Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw's trial rescheduled    Wed Feb 25, 04:24 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw's pretrial conference has been rescheduled to April 8 as authorities await crime lab results.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne uncertain about future    Thu Feb 19, 01:40 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Reggie Wayne has not informed the Colts on if he wants to play again next season, according to general manager Ryan Grigson.

Footballguys view: Wayne is definitely very close to the end of his career. Whether he chooses to play again or not - and it won't shock us if he decides not to - the Colts need to think about replacing him. While they have some bigger needs for early in the draft, they will definitely look to add a rookie receiver and will likely make a run at receivers in free agency as well.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton may be extension candidate    Thu Feb 19, 01:39 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton could receive a contract extension this offseason.

Footballguys view: Hilton recently became a client of Drew Rosenhaus which means he wants things done and soon. The Colts should as well, since he's the biggest and most important weapon the Colts have aside from Andrew Luck. The Colts need to lock him down and do it soon.

  Colts | Trent Richardson, Indy at odds    Tue Feb 17, 10:47 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson missed the team's walkthrough and flight for the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots. He was suspended two games without pay for not contacting the team prior to his absence. However, sources said his absence was due to serious complications with his girlfriend's pregnancy that could potentially have endangered the life of the child. Richardson rushed her to the hospital Jan. 17, the same day the team left for New England.

Footballguys view: This pairing is likely over after the Colts voided the rest of Richardson's contract. This way they can walk away without having to pay him any dead money. Richardson may not find many teams interested if he finds his way to the open market. He's been a career disappointment, batting weight issues and nagging injuries with both the Colts and the Browns.

  Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw pleads not guilty     Tue Feb 17, 12:16 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw has pleaded not guilty to a marijuana possession charge in western Ohio.

  Colts | Trent Richardson critiqued by Patriot    Tue Feb 10, 07:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson needs to be more decisive when he runs, according to New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount. Blount said Richardson needs to find the creases his offensive line gives him and use his size to his advantage.

Footballguys view: Blount is just telling the truth. Richardson had high upside when he was selected as the third-overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2012 NFL draft. Since then, he's largely been a disappointment. Richardson is not decisive, explosive or energetic with the ball in his hands. We'll likely see the Colts release him this offseason. Richardson will enter a jam-packed RB free agent group. Also, this draft has a ton of talent at the position. This means he might have to wait a while for some team to show interest.

  Colts | Indy unhappy with Trent Richardson    Mon Feb 9, 01:29 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson developed a rocky relationship with the team last year, and the tension built up over the season because of weight issues, accessibility and an absence, according to multiple sources. Richardson was suspended two games for missing a walk-through. Richardson started the year at 225 pounds, but he ballooned up to 240 pounds later in the year, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Richardson's one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team voided the guarantee of a $3,184,062 salary in 2015. This allows the Colts to wash their hands of the first-round bust without owing him any money. He'll hit the market in a strong year for running backs through free agency and the draft. Richardson will have a difficult time finding a new home with his recent play.

  Colts | CFL Star Duron Carter agree to terms    Tue Jan 27, 11:14 PM

Free-agent WR Duron Carter (CFL) and the Indianapolis Colts have reportedly agreed to terms on a deal Tuesday, Jan. 27, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Official confirmation of the deal is not expected until February. It's a good addition for the Colts. Carter, the son of Hall of Fame WR Cris Carter, has starred in the CFL for the Montreal Alouettes over the last two years. He's big (6'4" 200 pounds) and can fly down the field. Carter needs to get better at beating press coverage, but he's got incredible natural athleticism after the catch. His addition will push Donte Moncrief for playing time and targets in 2015.

  Colts | Rob Chudzinski named associate head coach    Tue Jan 27, 11:58 AM

Indianapolis Colts special assistant Rob Chudzinski was named the associate head coach Tuesday, Jan. 27.

Footballguys view: A strong move for both sides here. Chudzinski was a special assistant behind Chuck Pagano in 2014, and now he'll continue to work with Andrew Luck and this high-powered passing game. He was getting interest from other teams out there because he's a quality offensive coordinator, but Chudzinski decided that staying with the Colts was his best move.

  Colts | Trent Richardson's guarantee voided    Tue Jan 27, 10:40 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team voided the guarantee of a $3,184,062 salary in 2015.

Footballguys view: We'll see Richardson appeal this with the NFLPA. If the Colts win, it means they'll be able to release Richardson without paying him the final year of his rookie contract. Richardson was the third-overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft, but his career has been in a tailspin since the Colts gave up a first-round pick for him in 2013. The Colts should be in the market for a running back this offseason either through the draft or free agency.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent DE Fili Moala is not expected to re-sign with the team this offseason.

  Colts | Cory Redding could retire    Fri Jan 23, 04:39 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent DE Cory Redding is not sure if he will retire this offseason or continue his playing career.

Footballguys view: A leader on the defensive line, Redding has a long relationship with head coach Chuck Pagano. He had a $3.5 million salary in 2014, but he'd likely have to take a pay cut to stick around in 2015.

  Colts | Matt Hasselbeck unsure about future    Fri Jan 23, 04:20 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck is not sure if he will retire this offseason or continue his playing career.

Footballguys view: Hasselbeck has been vacillating on whether or not he's going to continue playing for some time. He's set to hit free agency this year, but the Colts could easily re-sign him to continue as the backup quarterback behind Andrew Luck.

  Colts | Trent Richardson was suspended    Wed Jan 21, 09:04 AM

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was suspended and deactivated for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: Richardson told the team he was dealing with a serious family problem. We're doubtful the team would suspend him if that was the case. He has a $3.1 million cap number next year-all guaranteed-but we think the Colts could cut him loose later this offseason.

  Colts | Dan Herron may not be starter    Tue Jan 20, 10:05 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is more of a backup than a starter, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Footballguys view: Wells is right. Herron drops too many passes to be counted on as anything more than a part-time player. We'll likely see the Colts make a move for a free agent running back or select on in the draft.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne undecided on future    Mon Jan 19, 06:53 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (triceps) is unsure if he will be returning for another season. Wayne was targeted just twice in the loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Sunday, Jan. 18, and he didn't have any catches.

Footballguys view: The veteran receiver just isn't the same as he used to be. Wayne is hitting the open market as an unrestricted free agent in 2015. Wayne said he plans to have surgery to fix a torn triceps this offseason.

  Colts | Trent Richardson doesn't travel with team     Sat Jan 17, 03:05 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (personal) did not make the trip to New England for the AFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Richardson was a healthy scratch last week against the Broncos, and now he'll miss the AFC Championship. Behind Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton on the depth chart, Richardson's game has fallen off more than ever this year. He's due to make $3.2 million (fully guaranteed), but we still think the Colts will consider releasing him.

  Colts | Dan Herron the key to victory?    Fri Jan 16, 08:14 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron has had at least eight carries in a game eight times this year, and the Colts are 8-0 in those games.

Footballguys view: This is a super simplified way of looking at the matchup against the Patriots. They could give Herron 20 carries, and it doesn't put an automatic "W" on the board. The Patriots are a tough matchup, and we think Herron is best suited getting a lot of receptions out of the backfield. We're not predicting a ton of success on the ground for the Colts. This game will come down to Andrew Luck and his ability to lift this team.
