  Colts | Six signed to future contracts    Mon Feb 15, 04:17 PM

Adam Caplan, of Scout.com, reports the Indianapolis Colts have signed QB Drew Willy, WR Taj Smith, WR John Matthews, OG Jaimie Thomas, LB Brandon Renkart and CB Terrail Lambert to future contracts. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed. All six finished the season on the Colts practice squad.

Footballguys view: Drew Willy is an intriguing developmental project for the Colts. He loves to throw deep, and will continue to fire down field and challenge the edges of the defense. John Matthews is a very good route runner, and has very strong hands. He's not the fastest, or the quickest wide receiver, but could provide quality depth on one of the best passing offenses in the league.
