  Colts | Indy video chats with Jordan Love    Wed Apr 1, 01:14 PM

Utah State QB Jordan Love participated in a predraft video meeting with the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Colts were in position for Love at No.13 overall but they traded the pick to the 49ers for DeForest Buckner. Now, they don't have a first-round pick and Love is highly unlikely to fall to the second round. In fact, he's unlikely to fall out of the top 12 of the draft.

  Colts | Return to form for Philip Rivers?    Sun Mar 29, 12:09 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers 'might return to 2018 form' behind one of the league's top offensive lines, in the opinion of Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: That's something worth watching because the Chargers offensive line was one of the worst in the league last year. To get back to form, Rivers needs to cut down on interceptions. It should help that he'll have better protection when going back to pass this season.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers' signing with the team was officially announced Saturday, March 21.

Footballguys view: Rivers gets a one-year deal with the Colts to be their starter so they can make a run. He had his greatest years in the NFL under Frank Reich when he was the quarterbacks coach with the Chargers. Rivers won't take long to get up to speed in the offense and we'll see if a fresh start does him a world of good.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett needs to pull trigger    Thu Mar 5, 10:44 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett needs to make quicker decisions with the football, according to offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni. 'He always knew where to go with the football, and then we just speed that up a little bit,' Siranni said.

Footballguys view: The Colts are looking for an upgrade at the quarterback position in 2020. That's why they may be the favorite to land veteran quarterback Philip Rivers. We'll see if the Colts add a guy like Rivers which would force Brissett to a second-string role.

Free-agent QB Philip Rivers (Chargers) is likely to sign with the Indianapolis Colts, in the opinions of some at the NFL Scouting Combine.

  Colts | Indy needs to see more from Jacoby Brissett    Tue Feb 25, 05:31 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett needs to be seen in a larger sample of work, according to general manager Chris Ballard Tuesday, Feb. 25. 'We did a 2-year deal with Jacoby to find out,' Ballard said at a press conference from the Scouting Combine. 'We like Jacoby Brissett. Love what he stands for. It was almost a tale of two seasons where we're 5-2, he's playing good football. He had the injury and we had injuries as a team and we kind of slid down. We did the short term deal to see what we had. To say we're going to create competition, we're going to create competition at any spot. That's going to be a year-to-year thing.'

Footballguys view: The Colts are in the quarterback market. Brissett has been 'ok' as the starter but he could be better. The team is built to make a run at the playoffs if they had better quarterback play. That means we could see Philip Rivers as an option for them in addition to the top quarterbacks in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is not in line for a contract extension at this time. '(Marlon), we love him, but we love the other two guys. We want him back and he wants to be back, really. There were some mis-reports that we were pursuing an extension there. That's not the case. I don't know where those came from,' team owner Jim Irsay said Sunday, Feb. 23.

Footballguys view: This is just kind of the way it goes for running backs. Teams want to use them up on their rookie contracts and then see what else is out there. The Colts have Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines who could get more work if Mack were to move on.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton needs a running mate    Sun Feb 16, 11:58 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton needs more depth behind him at the receiver position, according to general manager Chris Ballard. 'Do we need to add more explosive elements to our offense? Yeah, we do,' Ballard said. 'Just want somebody who can catch the ball and go score.'

Footballguys view: The Colts thought they might have that with 2019 second-round pick Parris Campbell, but the rookie was hurt and ineffective much of last season. It could still be Campbell, but with so many talented wide receivers coming into the NFL via the 2020 NFL draft we expect the Colts to continue to address the position. A wide receiver with their first-round pick is not out of the question.

Footballguys view: Mack is entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2020. Coming off his first 1,000-yard season as a runner, Mack is in a good spot to get a new deal. He'll carry most of the load for the Colts offense once again this season.

  Colts | Indy to show interest in Philip Rivers?    Sun Feb 2, 04:58 PM

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent QB Philip Rivers may receive interest from the Indianapolis Colts if he is available in the free-agent market, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: This speculation has been out there for some time. Colts head coach Frank Reich was the Chargers QB coach when Rivers had arguably the best season of his pro career (2013). Rivers is likely done with the Chargers, and he could land with the Colts or the Buccaneers...or somebody else...this offseason.

  Colts | Parris Campbell sheds boot    Fri Jan 31, 09:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell (foot) said he recently shed his walking boot and hopes to resume football activities by the end of February.

Campbell flashed just a bit during his rookie year in 2019, compiling just 18 catches for 127 yards and one touchdown in seven games.

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle posted three catches for 63 yards and a touchdown on four targets for the AFC at the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 26.

Footballguys view: Doyle will continue to be a big part of the Colts passing game in 2020. However, we have questions about who his quarterback will be. The Colts could be in the market for a guy like Philip Rivers in free agency or they might draft a player like Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft. Either way, we expect them to add competition for Jacoby Brissett.
