INDIANAPOLIS – Another interior member from the best defensive line in football is joining the Colts. But this one looks a lot different, and certainly is much more familiar with Indianapolis than his teammate having already signed that new contract. Indy native Sheldon Day (Notre Dame and Warren Central High School product) will continue to […]

INDIANAPOLIS – Chris Ballard had not had the job for more than 24 hours before he knew. Holy bleep, this defense needs an overhaul. The change first began in 2017 with the Colts deciding to part ways with many veterans north of the age of 30. The next offseason a major shift systematically came, as […]

INDIANAPOLIS – That big body wideout for Philip Rivers to work with in 2020 will not be Devin Funchess. And that means the wide receiver need for the Colts continues to be of the utmost importance this offseason. The 26-year-old Funchess agreed to terms with the Packers on Tuesday night, which only further stresses the […]

INDIANAPOLIS – In getting more than a decade older at quarterback, the Colts are really changing the type of guy now under center. First, let’s take a look at the 2019 numbers of Philip Rivers (16 starts) and Jacoby Brissett (15 starts): –Rivers: 390-of-591 (66.0 percent), 4,615 yards, 23 TDs, 20 INTs, 7.8 yards per […]

INDIANAPOLIS – Robert Mathis is saying what everyone else is thinking. A 1-on-1 rep between DeForest Buckner and Quenton Nelson come Training Camp will be must-watch. Bucker is quite eager to see No. 56 across of him. “I’m excited, the guy is an All-Pro,” Bucker told ‘Voice of the Colts’ Matt Taylor when asked about […]

INDIANAPOLIS – Some Colts fans do not need a reminder of the fire Philip Rivers plays with, and his willingness to show that passion. It was in January 2008—the final game ever inside of the RCA Dome—when Rivers ran his mouth to the home faithful as his Chargers capped a 28-24 Divisional Round upset of […]

INDIANAPOLIS – For the first time in his 16-year playing career, Philip Rivers had discussions this offseason about retirement. In talking with his wife and oldest children, the desire to keep playing, and start a new journey somewhere else, won out in the end. And that means the 11-person Rivers family is relocating from southern […]

INDIANAPOLIS – The possibility of Jacoby Brissett being the Colts backup in 2020 remains in play. With the Colts opening up cap space on Saturday, they decided to part ways with Pierre Desir ($6.8 million savings) and Brian Hoyer ($3 million savings), while holding onto Jacoby Brissett. Despite a $21 million cap hit for Brissett […]

INDIANAPOLIS – It’s a good problem to have, but it has cost the Colts their top two offensive line reserves from last season. The Colts know what their starting offensive line is in 2020, but a byproduct of that means no open starting competition anywhere up front. Because of that, free agents Joe Haeg (Buccaneers) […]

INDIANAPOLIS – Chris Ballard made his most surprising move of the 2020 offseason on Saturday. The Colts decided to release veteran cornerback Pierre Desir, which does save the team nearly $7 million. Desir, 29, had re-signed with Ballard and the Colts each of the last two offseasons, including a 3-year, $22.5 million deal in March […]
