  Colts | Owner wants Andrew Luck signed soon    Sun May 1, 08:48 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is having serious contract negotiations with the organization, and owner Jim Irsay said he would like Luck signed by the start of training camp in July.

Footballguys view: What was the old line from Terrell Owens? "It's only a matter of time!" That's right, as in the near future we expect to see Luck rewarded with a contract that makes him the highest paid QB in the NFL. He's the key to their success, and the Colts need to do anything they can to lock him down for years to come.

The Indianapolis Colts traded the 48th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for the 57th overall pick, 125th overall pick and 248th overall pick in the draft. The Packers picked OT Jason Spriggs with the selection.

  Colts | Indy takes Ryan Kelly 18th overall    Thu Apr 28, 10:11 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected Alabama C Ryan Kelly with the 18th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: A smart move for a team whose quarterback got killed last season. Kelly was not flagged for a holding penalty last year and was a very stable piece of the Bama offensive line.

  Colts | Jihad Ward meets with Colts    Wed Apr 27, 10:33 AM

Illinois DT Jihad Ward met with Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano and general manager Ryan Grigson Tuesday, April 26.

Footballguys view: Ward is versatile and athletic, but he is still a project as a defensive lineman after starting his junior college career as a wide receiver/safety. The Colts should be looking at him in the second round, although his ceiling could get him into first round consideration.

  Colts | Sign two offensive tackles    Wed Apr 20, 05:16 PM

Free-agent OTs Kevin Graf (Eagles) and Mitchell Van Dyk (Steelers) signed undisclosed deals with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, April 20.

Footballguys view: We'll see if that helps keep Andrew Luck upright and healthy this year. It sure can't be worse, can it? (Please say it can't.)

  Colts | Andrew Luck not at full health     Mon Apr 18, 05:41 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder, kidney) said he's not as healthy as he can be and that he still has work to do, although he did say he feels really good. Luck did he say he participated in everything during the first day of the offseason program Monday, April 18.

Footballguys view: The Broncos broke Luck last year during the regular season, and the Colts season tanked after he went down. Luck did not disclose a timeline for his rehabilitation or what he must do in order to complete a full recovery by Week 1.

  Colts | Phillip Dorsett expected to be No. 3 WR    Mon Apr 18, 04:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett is expected to be the No. 3 receiver for the Colts in 2016 if he is able to stay healthy.

Footballguys view: A trio of T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Dorsett should be fantastic. Now we'll see if Andrew Luck can stay healthy and shine in 2016. The Colts have offensive firepower, but their offensive line needs a ton of work.

  Colts | Clayton Geathers expected to start    Mon Apr 18, 04:17 PM

  Colts | Henry Anderson progressing slowly    Mon Apr 11, 11:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts DE Henry Anderson (knee) is slowly progressing from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered in November, and his availability for the start of training camp is in serious jeopardy. Despite missing the final seven games last season, Anderson still finished 18th among all 3-4 scheme defensive linemen in tackles in 2015.

  Colts | Two receivers signed    Thu Apr 7, 05:32 PM

Free-agent WRs Josh Boyce (Patriots) and Brian Tyms (Patriots) both signed undisclosed deals with the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, April 7. OG Ben Heenan was waived in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Mostly role players, both are worth keeping an eye on because with the Patriots you never know who will pop and produce.

  Colts | Indy's No. 2 TE job Jack Doyle's to lose    Fri Apr 1, 09:51 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle will have the first shot at being the No. 2 tight end in 2016 with TE Coby Fleener signing with the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Doyle is unlikely to have much fantasy value in 2016. Dwayne Allen is going to finally get the chance to prove himself as the lead TE for the Colts after years of splitting time with Fleener.

  Colts | Indy works out Marshaun Coprich    Mon Mar 28, 03:41 PM

Illinois State RB Marshaun Coprich worked out privately for the Indianapolis Colts Monday, March 28, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Watching his ultra-productive career (over 5,200 yards rushing) there are some who will compare him to Darren Sproles. We're not buying it. Coprich can make people miss, but he's not as explosive as Sproles is. Think more Jacquizz Rodgers when considering a pro comparison for the late-round or undrafted prospect. Coprich accepted a plea agreement this summer for selling nine grams of marijuana to undercover officer and will still be on probation during the draft.

  Colts | Andrew Luck needs to learn to slide    Thu Mar 24, 12:51 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck needs to learn how to slide better in order to avoid big hits in games, according to owner Jim Irsay. Minor league baseball manager Dean Treanor has offered his services to teach Luck the proper way to slide. Luck suffered a lacerated kidney on a hit he took last season and missed extended time.

Footballguys view: It's the least of his issues, as he had a lot of accuracy and timing problems last year. If he's healthy, we think he bounces back this coming season and could be a solid QB2 in fantasy.

The Indianapolis Colts project OT Denzelle Good as the starter at right tackle, and feel he could be a real factor.

  Colts | Anthony Castonzo viewed as rock    Thu Mar 24, 12:52 AM

The Indianapolis Colts view OT Anthony Castonzo as a rock at left tackle, even though he is coming off, arguably, his worst season since 2011.

Footballguys view: Andrew Luck's 2015 was a nightmare, due in large part to offensive line play. He is still an elite QB1 heading into the 2016 season, but Luck's seemingly safe floor is not longer an asset after the bottom dropped out last year.

  Colts | Patrick Robinson signs     Wed Mar 23, 07:46 PM

Free-agent CB Patrick Robinson (Chargers) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, March 23.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys seemed close to landing Robinson, but the Colts won his services in the end. The former first-round pick did a good job limiting the damage on receptions by his man in 2015, holding the opposition to 8.9 yards per catch. He might start opposite Vontae Davis.

Free-agent RB Jordan Todman (Steelers) agreed to terms with the Indianapolis Colts Friday, March 18. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Todman will work as a change-of-pace back behind Frank Gore. There's no guarantee he makes the final roster.

  Colts | Indy signs Robert Turbin    Tue Mar 15, 06:03 PM

Free-agent RB Robert Turbin (Cowboys) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, March 15.

Footballguys view: Turbin has failed with multiple teams, and there's no guarantee he's going to make the Colts roster. He should, but we see Turbin as only a backup-caliber player with his new team.

  Colts | Scott Tolzien joins Indy    Fri Mar 11, 06:17 PM

Free-agent QB Scott Tolzien (Packers) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Friday, March 11.

  Colts | Andre Johnson released by Indy    Wed Mar 9, 04:57 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson was released by the team on Wednesday, March 9.

Footballguys view: Johnson just is not the same player he used to be, and 2015 was a disappointing season for the veteran. He insists that he's going to play in 2016, but we can't imagine the market being white hot for his services.

  Colts | Bjoern Werner cut    Tue Mar 8, 03:21 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Bjoern Werner was released Tuesday, March 8.

Footballguys view: The Colts have finally given up on the 2013 first-round pick. Werner was a healthy scratch about a half-dozen times last year, and only has 6.5 sacks in 38 career games. If another team adds him, it will likely be as a depth player who has to make a name on special teams just to make the roster.

  Colts | Trent Cole takes pay cut    Tue Mar 8, 08:52 AM

Indianapolis Colts LB Trent Cole restructured his contract Tuesday, March 8, and took a pay cut from $4.25 million to $2 million in 2016.

Footballguys view: He was just signed last offseason, but Cole is not the player he used to be. The Colts should still be able to use him effectively as a part-time pass-rusher.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen staying with Colts    Mon Mar 7, 07:52 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen agreed to terms with the Colts Monday, March 7, on a four-year deal worth $29.4 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Wow, things change quickly around here. After the season, it looked like Allen was ready to move on. Now, he returns to the Colts to be their lead tight end as it looks like fellow free agent Coby Fleener may not be kept. If healthy, Allen could easily be a TE2 you want to snare for your fantasy team.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen feels he'll be back    Thu Mar 3, 02:25 AM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen is hopeful of avoiding free agency and staying with the team. 'Hopefully we don't get to that point,' Allen said in a radio interview. 'It's in my gut that I'm here (next season).'

Footballguys view: He should come cheap as he has never caught more than 45 passes and hasn't broken 500 yards receiving any of the past three seasons. Wherever he goes, Allen will likely be no more than a role player and therefore not have much fantasy value.

Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck was told by the Colts that he is not in their plans for next season. QB Josh Freeman is expected to back up QB Andrew Luck.

Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett is expected to replace former Colts WR Andre Johnson in three-wide receiver sets.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Coby Fleener has not made a lot of progress in contract talks with the Colts at this point, according to sources.

Footballguys view: They may not be close at this time, but we expect the two sides to work something out. Both Fleener and Dwayne Allen are set to hit the open market, but Fleener seems much more likely to stay with Indy.

  Colts | Andre Johnson preparing to return    Wed Feb 24, 01:24 PM

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson wasn't considering retirement, and he is training and preparing to return in 2016, according to his agent, Kennard McGuire.

Footballguys view: Johnson could be waiting a while for a call after a lackluster 2015. He can provide dependable depth for an NFL team that doesn't need a field stretcher, but Johnson's fantasy relevant are sadly over.

  Colts | Andre Johnson considering retirement    Wed Feb 24, 10:10 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson is contemplating retirement. The Colts plan to cut Johnson this offseason.

Footballguys view: Johnson looked like a player with one foot in the grave last year after getting paid to the tune of ten million dollars guaranteed over a three-year deal. There were murmurs that he had lost a step, and the reveal in Week 1 indicated he had lost more than that. We should pay close attention to anyone who has that kind of buzz about them this offseason, as Johnson shows that next year they could be out of the league.
