  Colts | T.Y. Hilton looking to be leader    Wed Apr 22, 02:02 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton said he will become a leader on the team since free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) will not return. 'I'm the captain of the room. Right now, I gotta make sure everybody's on point, make sure we're on point with Andrew (Luck). For me, whatever (Wayne) taught me, make sure I'm teaching everybody else, because it's only right. Marvin did it with him. He did it for me. Now, I gotta pass on the torch,' Hilton said.

Footballguys view: Hilton took a big step forward and helped fantasy teams as a near WR1 who came at a WR3 price. This year, he'll cost a third round pick and high WR2 price, but he could outproduce that expectation if he really emerges as a true #1 for the most productive QB in football.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen contract talks not looming    Mon Apr 20, 02:58 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen's contract talks will not begin until after the season. He has been given permission to train with his own trainer this offseason.

Footballguys view: Allen was banged up for part of last year and ended up only playing in 13 games. He caught eight touchdowns, but Allen only snared 29 passes for 395 yards. If he can stay healthy, perhaps Allen will have a larger role for the Colts outside the red zone.

  Colts | Akeem Hunt drawing interest in Indy    Mon Apr 20, 09:30 AM

Purdue RB Akeem Hunt has drawn interest from the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: Hunt is your classic triple threat who often draws comparisons to Darren Sproles (Eagles). At 183 pounds, Hunt is a smaller back with explosive playmaking capability as an outside runner, receiver out of the backfield (or the slot) and kick/punt returner.

  Colts | Andre Johnson joining teammates    Sat Apr 18, 12:17 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson said he plans on participating in an offseason program that begins Monday, April 20. 'I'm excited about it,' Johnson said. 'I'll actually be heading to Indy tomorrow. I'm excited about the opportunity. Can't wait to get it going. It'll be different, but at the same time, still football. I'll go in, just learn what I need to learn, learn my new teammates and try to fit in and help win games.'

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see how Johnson fits in with the Colts as an underneath target. For fantasy owners, Johnson should be considered a WR2 because of the offense and his quarterback.

  Colts | Likely wait and see with Dwayne Allen    Tue Apr 14, 01:35 AM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen has struggled to stay healthy in the early part of his career, so it is likely he needs to improve his durability before the team offers him a contract extension.

Footballguys view: Allen has talent and upside, but he's got to stay healthy. If he can have a healthy and productive 2015, then perhaps he'll stay with the Colts.

  Colts | Coby Fleener enters last year of deal    Tue Apr 14, 01:33 AM

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener is entering the final season of his rookie deal, and he is scheduled to become a free agent in spring 2016. He has established himself as one of the most criticial components of the Indy passing offense.

Footballguys view: We have a hard time seeing Fleener move on from the Colts. His connection with QB Andrew Luck goes back to their days in college at Stanford. Fleener is a favorite target in that offense, and we don't think his new contract would be for an outrageous amount of money.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton likely looking for deal    Tue Apr 14, 01:33 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton recently fired his agent and re-hired Drew Rosenhaus, a move believed to precede a contract negotiation.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation as it develops. Hilton has outperformed his third-round rookie deal, and likely wants a new--and much larger--contract. The two sides have had negotiations, but it is unclear if the talks have moved forward.

  Colts | Anthony Castonzo is long-term solution    Tue Apr 14, 01:32 AM

Indianapolis Colts OT Anthony Castonzo is slated to play under the fifth-year option of his rookie deal.

Footballguys view: The team sees him as their long-term left tackle, although according to sources there is no long-term deal imminent at this time.

  Colts | Aaron Morgan to Reserve/Retired list    Mon Apr 13, 12:09 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Aaron Morgan was placed on the Reserve/Retired list Monday, April 13.

Footballguys view: Morgan was placed on season-ending injured reserve last year just a few days into training camp. The pass-rusher didn't play a game for the Colts, but has appeared in 18 games for the Buccaneers and Jaguars.

  Colts | Andrew Luck's option picked up    Thu Apr 9, 04:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's fifth-year option was picked up Thursday, April 9. Luck is under contract through 2016.

Footballguys view: As we mentioned earlier, no shock here. Luck will continue to be the foundation of this Colts team and they will hold onto him. This is probably the last year they get him cheaply though. We expect Luck to be the highest-paid quarterback in the league someday. Luck should be a top-5 quarterback in fantasy with his new weapons like Andre Johnson and Frank Gore.

  Colts | IND picks up Andrew Luck's option    Thu Apr 9, 02:37 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's fifth year option was picked up by the team Thursday, April 9. He is scheduled to make $16.155 million in 2016.

Footballguys view: Wow, who saw that coming? Oh, everybody? Because he's one of the best young quarterbacks in the league and already on the fringe of being an 'elite' quarterback? All his fantasy owners? Ah. Carry on then and select him high in your draft as he has more weapons, more protection and the same lackluster AFC South to play against in 2015.

  Colts | Donte Moncrief's role expanding    Sun Apr 5, 09:38 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is going to have 'more opportunities going forward,' head coach Chuck Pagano told the team's official website.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Colts, Moncrief...and Moncrief's fantasy owners here. Moncrief has the size/speed combination to be one of the best deep weapons in the NFL. He will drive off corners, blow by them and use his frame well to keep defenders away from the ball. Andre Johnson will work underneath routes this year, and Moncrief should be able to go vertical more often (and with more success) in 2015.

  Colts | Vick Ballard making progress    Sun Apr 5, 11:53 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') is doing well in his rehab from a torn Achilles' tendon but there is no timetable for his return to the field, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries aren't as devastating as they used to be, but the team will be cautious with Ballard as he recovers. Ballard is expected to compete with RB Dan Herron for the team's RB2 job if he is healthy.

  Colts | Dwight Lowery agrees    Fri Apr 3, 08:17 PM

Free-agent SS Dwight Lowery (Falcons) agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Friday, April 3.

Footballguys view: Lowery gives them veteran depth at the position, but that's about it. He's terrible in coverage, and we think the Colts will still address their secondary in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne wanted to stay in Indy    Fri Apr 3, 01:27 PM

Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) pleaded to remain with the Indianapolis Colts for one more season, but owner Jim Irsay told Wayne that the team decided to move on. 'I have nothing bad to say about the Colts,' Wayne said. 'I have zero bad to say. They took me from the street and turned a frown upside down. Zero bad to say.'

Footballguys view: Wayne had just 64 catches for 779 yards and two touchdowns in 2014 while dealing with nagging injuries, and he underwent triceps and knee surgery after the season. Some team may take a chance on the veteran, but that might not happen until training camp or after the beginning of the regular season.

  Colts | Robert Mathis update    Wed Apr 1, 01:25 PM

Updating a previous item, Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis (Achilles') has not started running in his rehab yet, but he's hoping to be ready for training camp this summer.

Footballguys view: The Colts are likely to put Mathis on PUP to begin training camp. Owner Jim Irsay said the worst-case scenario for Mathis would be to 're-emerge' in November of this year. That means that PUP at the start of the regular season is an option too. PUP at the beginning of the year would mean Mathis would be forced to miss the first six weeks of the season. After that time, the Colts would have three weeks to determine whether or not to activate Mathis or put him on season-ending Injured Reserve.

  Colts | Dan Herron signs tender    Wed Apr 1, 12:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts exclusive rights free-agent RB Dan Herron has signed his tender offer Wednesday, April 1. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Colts had to keep Herron around as a reserve player behind Frank Gore. Herron looked 1,000 percent better than Trent Richardson last year, but he did wear down as the season went on.

  Colts | Robert Mathis hopeful for preseason    Tue Mar 31, 11:20 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis (Achilles') said Tuesday, March 31, that he is hopeful of playing during the preseason. However, he said that his rehab for a torn Achilles' is going slow.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries aren't quite as severe as they used to be, but it's still a serious injury that will need to be monitored closely. The Colts defense will certainly be better with a healthy Mathis on the field.

  Colts | Vincent Brown signs    Tue Mar 31, 04:02 PM

Free-agent WR Vincent Brown (Raiders) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, March 31.

Footballguys view: The story with Brown will always be "what might have been." Coming out of San Diego State in 2011, Brown was a crisp route-runner with strong hands. Injuries caused him to lose his speed and quickness, and Brown has struggled to impress as a pro. He'll compete for a backup role on a Colts team that is jam-packed at the wide receiver position.

  Colts | Andre Johnson praised by HC    Tue Mar 31, 02:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson still has what it takes to be a successful wide receiver in the NFL, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. 'He's a big body guy that can still separate,' Pagano said. 'He's got a big catch radius... It's very difficult to match up [against him].'

Footballguys view: Johnson should be able to produce as an underneath receiver for the Colts. His big body will come in handy when the sticks need to be moved and also in the red zone.

  Colts | Pagano not worried about Andre Johnson    Tue Mar 24, 05:27 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson has a backer in head coach Chuck Pagano, and Pagano is not concerned with Johnson's age. 'Watched him on tape, everybody watched him on tape when we knew there was maybe a chance he'd come available. Saw a dominant guy, we know what he went through last season, the circumstances he went through, but he's a force to be reckoned with. You need to do everything you can to make sure he doesn't wreck the game,' Pagano said.

Footballguys view: Johnson still has plenty left in the tank. Instead of struggling with poor QB play in Houston, Johnson will now be catching passes from superstar QB Andrew Luck.

  Colts | Andrew Luck extension unlikely in 2015    Mon Mar 23, 07:32 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck likely will not be a candidate for a contract extension until next offseason, according to owner Jim Irsay.

Footballguys view: No hurries here. Luck is going to be with the Colts for a long, long time. They'll wrap him up with a new long-term contract when the time is right.

  Colts | Nate Irving's offseason status uncertain    Sat Mar 21, 03:04 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Nate Irving's (knee) level of participation for offseason workouts is not known at this point, because he is recovering from a knee injury.

Footballguys view: Irving has failed to stay healthy for much of his pro career. The Colts would be wise to let him rest.

  Colts | Nate Irving agrees    Fri Mar 20, 12:12 PM

Free-agent LB Nate Irving (Broncos) agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Friday, March 20.

Footballguys view: Irving is a two-down thumper who can stuff the run. He's better in coverage than some give him credit for, but he's not a player who truly excels on passing downs. Injuries and inconsistencies have held back Irving during his pro career. We'll see if a change of scenery helps him play more consistently in 2015.

  Colts | Erik Walden injured in reported attack    Fri Mar 20, 11:44 AM

Indianapolis Colts LB Erik Walden (arm) was slashed across his arm during an alleged altercation with his ex-girlfriend, Erica Palmer. Palmer reportedly believed Walden was seeing someone else and staked out his home. Walden, with whom Palmer has two children, reportedly arrived with another woman, when Braselton, Ga., police said Palmer entered the residence carrying a firearm and baseball bat.

Footballguys view: Um, okay then. We're glad nobody was seriously hurt here.

  Colts | Daniel Adongo signs tender    Thu Mar 19, 05:13 PM

Indianapolis Colts exclusive-rights free-agent LB Daniel Adongo signed his tender offer Thursday, March 19. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Colts will hold onto the former rugby player now, though he is still a large work in progress. His impact this season will be limited, at best.

  Colts | Demarco Cox signs    Thu Mar 19, 02:46 PM

Free-agent OT Demarco Cox signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Indianapolis has offensive line issues. They spent a bit lavishly on Andre Johnson and Frank Gore but they need to improve the o-line to protect Andrew Luck. That said, Cox is converting from being a basketball player. Cox played college basketball for Ole Miss from 2010 to 2014 before later transferring to George Tech for his final year of eligibility. This isn't a move that looks like it will pay off any time soon.

  Colts | Nate Irving to visit    Mon Mar 16, 06:22 PM

Free-agent LB Nate Irving (Broncos) will visit with the Indianapolis Colts Monday, March 16.

Footballguys view: Irving has drawn interest from the Arizona Cardinals as well. He's a two-down thumper with better-than-expected coverage skills. Injuries are a huge concern with Irving as he looks for a fresh start--and a starting job in 2015.

  Colts | Andre Johnson in good situation    Mon Mar 16, 09:39 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson will catch 90 passes in 2015, in the opinion of SI.com's Peter King.

Footballguys view: We could see that. Johnson's not washed up, and the Colts started flowing through Andrew Luck more than ever last year. The Colts have set themselves up to make a Super Bowl run with all this talent they've assembled.

  Colts | Michael Hill let go    Thu Mar 12, 05:19 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Michael Hill was released Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: With Frank Gore in town, a random backup was unnecessary. Hill has been dressed for just 8 games in his career, and has totaled 46 yards rushing and receiving. Even in super deep dynasty leagues, Hill is no longer a "deep sleeper" like some once considered him.

  Colts | Trent Richardson released by Indy    Thu Mar 12, 05:16 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was released Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: As expected. What is tremendous about the fallout is Richardson has since said the Colts weren't a good fit for him and the next landing spot will be a starting job. We admire his self-belief but we have our doubts he will land anywhere save as a backup. He needs to prove himself, and so far all he's proven is an inability to run the ball.

  Colts | Andre Johnson to sign with Colts    Wed Mar 11, 04:10 PM

Free-agent WR Andre Johnson (Texans) is reportedly signing with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, March 11.

Footballguys view: Johnson will keep Donte Moncrief from getting the opportunity opened up by Reggie Wayne no longer being with the Colts. He should be a solid WR2 and Johnson also has a chance to do better in red zone than he ever did with Houston, safe for a few games with now St. Louis Ram Case Keenum.

  Colts | Frank Gore agrees with Colts    Tue Mar 10, 06:13 PM

Free-agent RB Frank Gore (49ers) officially agreed to terms on a deal Tuesday, March 10, that will guarantee him $8.5 million.

Footballguys view: Eagles fans are left saying "what happened?" as Gore was set to sign in Philadelphia before a change of heart. His addition to the Colts comes as no surprise. Reports were swirling the team had interest in Gore for some time. He'll be everything Trent Richardson couldn't be for the Pep Hamilton offense. We like him as a RB2 with upside for fantasy owners.

Indianapolis Colts FS Mike C. Adams has re-signed to a two-year deal Tuesday, March 10.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Frank Gore is planning to sign with the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source. His deal is expected to be for three years and $12 million, with $7.5 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quickly around here. Gore was going to sign with the Eagles, and now he's going to team up with Andrew Luck. It's a great move for the Colts as they get a strong runner who can take advantage of spread out defenses that are concerned with the passing game.

  Colts | Trent Cole joining Colts    Tue Mar 10, 12:19 PM

Free-agent LB Trent Cole (Eagles) is signing with the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, March 10. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Cole can be a standup pass-rusher in a 3-4, or he can play with his hand in the ground on the edge of a 4-3. That versatility has made his stock hotter on the open market. Cole is the second Eagles player added by Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson this offseason. He also brought in former Eagles guard Todd Herremans.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Frank Gore could still be an option for the Indianapolis Colts.

Free-agent LB Brian Orakpo (Redskins) may have some interest from the Indianapolis Colts, who will try and talk with him once the league year begins.

  Colts | Frank Gore receiving interest from Indy    Sun Mar 8, 01:59 PM

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Frank Gore is receiving interest from the Indianapolis Colts, and Gore is believed to have interest in the Colts, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The move to add Gore makes a ton of sense for the Colts. Gore is not the same player he used to be, but he could still rush for around 1,000 yards with Indianapolis. They are prepared to move on from Trent Richardson, and Gore would come with a good price tag. The Colts are also in the market for DeMarco Murray and perhaps even Adrian Peterson if he were to become available. Both of those backs would come with a premium price.

Free-agent OG Todd Herremans (Eagles) has agreed to terms with the Indianapolis Colts on a one-year deal worth as much as $3.5 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Colts need to do something up front after using 11 different O-line combinations in 2014. The 32-year-old right guard had recently been released after 10 seasons with the Eagles. Herremans will give them veteran experience as they rebuild in the trenches.
