  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.

  Colts | Mike Adams re-signs    Tue Mar 10, 04:09 PM

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

Footballguys view: A good move for the Colts here. Adams was a Pro Bowl free safety last year for the Colts, and now he gets to stay put for a couple of more years. We like what the Colts are doing for their defense.

  Colts | Frank Gore planning to join Colts    Tue Mar 10, 12:25 PM

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.

  Colts | Indy may still be in mix for Frank Gore    Mon Mar 9, 07:01 PM

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

Footballguys view: The Colts made a big run at Gore before he decided to sign with the Eagles. Now, they're back in the mix for Gore. Adding Gore to the team would be a great benefit for the offense. Stay tuned.

  Colts | Interested in Brian Orakpo    Mon Mar 9, 03:51 AM

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.

Footballguys view: The Colts might be too late to get in on the Orakpo sweepstakes. Teams like the Falcons, Jaguars and Cardinals have strong interest in the talented, but oft-injured pass-rusher.

  Colts | Darius Butler agrees to extension with Colts    Sun Mar 8, 10:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts CB Darius Butler has agreed to terms on a contract extension Sunday, March 8.

  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.

  Colts | Todd Herremans agrees to terms    Sun Mar 8, 11:34 AM

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.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne won't return    Fri Mar 6, 10:34 AM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Reggie Wayne will not be re-signed for 2015, the team announced Friday, March 6.

Footballguys view: It's the end of an era in Indianapolis. At 36-years old, and not the same player since injuring his ACL in 2013, Wayne may not find many suitors on the open market. He's likely considering retirement at this time, but there may be a team or two willing to bring him in on a veteran minimum contract.

  Colts | Colts not sold on Ndamukong Suh?    Thu Mar 5, 10:51 PM

Detroit Lions impending free-agent DT Ndamukong Suh may not be an ideal fit for the Indianapolis Colts because he would have to adjust his style of play to move from his current 4-3 defense to a 3-4 defense.

Footballguys view: Suh is a dominant player who could make the switch. What's most concerning about him is the personal foul penalties that seem to flood when he's on the field. He's ferocious and rarely dials it back.

  Colts | Dan Herron receives tender    Thu Mar 5, 05:48 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron was tendered as an exclusive rights free agent Thursday, March 5.

The Indianapolis Colts are expected to make a push for Detroit Lions impending free-agent DT Ndamukong Suh if he hits the open market. According to sources, his contract could potentially exceed $60 million.

Footballguys view: The Colts need a better defense if they're truly going to be Super Bowl contenders. Adding Suh would be huge for the Colts, and he would be able to make an immediate difference.

Footballguys view: Leg and ankle injuries have limited Branch to only five games over the last two years. If healthy, he could be a starting strong safety who thrives in the box.

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.

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 | 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.

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.
