Offseason Analysis: Indianapolis Colts
After years of very little change the Colts will have to adjust to life after Dungy. If anybody is capable of handling a new Coach, it’s Peyton Manning. He’s still slinging the pigkin and the Offense won’t change drastically. Joseph Addai will once again be the feature back. Dominic Rhodes is an Unrestricted Free Agent, but I suspect he’ll be back. Reggie Wayne, Anthony Gonzalez, and Dallas Clark will once again be at Peyton’s disposal. Marvin Harrison may not. Either way WR is probably a position that gets upgraded in the draft. Jeff Saturday most likely won’t return either, but they should be covered as the team addressed that need in last year’s draft.
Kelvin Hayden is their key Defensive Free Agent. He was their top CB last year, but could come with a steep price tag. If they lose him, obviously that creates a hole to be filled. LB Tyjuan Hagler is also a free agent that the Colts will look to bring back.
This is a championship caliber team that doesn’t need, nor will likely make, any major moves during the offseason.
** Update: Kelvin Hayden signed five-year deal with Colts. **
