Free Agency: The Colts have approximately $35 million to spend. As of now, I think the Khaled Holmes is the starting center next year, but Satele is kept as a backup. The major criticism I expect is the lack of a center, so there is my explanation.
Vontae Davis: Davis will be the top priority for the Colts in free agency. His contract will probably be in the 4 year $36 million range. Sean Smith's contract last year was 3 years $16.5 million. Davis will exceed that number, but $8 million per year seems about right considering the fact that he wants to return.
Linval Joseph: Joseph can both stop the run and rush the passer from the DT position. He will get a rich contract, but he is worth it. Chapman could rotate in the lineup with Joseph or one of them could move to a DE position like Ngata with the Ravens. The contract value would probably be in the range of 5 years and $35 million.
Jon Asamoah: The Colts need some help/depth on the interior offensive line. Asamoah would be push for a starting role. Louis Vasquez's deal last year was four years $23.5 million. Asamoah's contract would likely be in the range of four years $18 million.
Nate Allen: I think the Colts will let Bethea walk and look for a safety in the draft. However, they will need someone available to play FS at the start of the season. I’m going with Nate Allen because of the price and the Grigson connection. Allen was initially a draft bust, but has been improving. My guess is the contract would be in the 3 year $6 million range.
Desmond Bishop: He’s a strong linebacker, but has had injuries the past two seasons. This would be a low dollar signing that could turn out great. If they don’t re-sign Angerer or Conner, the Colts will need to bring someone in to compete at ILB. I would expect the contract to be in the 2 year $4 million range.
Pat McAfee: Solid player and a fan favorite. He will likely cost in the 4 year $14 million range.
Adam Vinatieri: He will likely get a 2 year contract for $6 million to finish his career in Indy.
Round 2: Kyle Fuller - CB - Even if the Colts re-sign Davis, they need more depth/skill at the position. Fuller is rated as the number 2 cornerback by some sites, but most have him going in the mid to late second round. Pierre Desir would be another option.
Round 3: Jared Abbrederis - WR - Unlike many, I hope the Colts draft a receiver in the second or third round. This year's class of WR is strong and it is likely the Colts will see a WR as the best player available in their early picks. I think Abbrederis is one of the more underrated prospects in this draft.
Round 5: Marqueston Huff - FS - If the Colts don't re-sign Bethea, they will need help at FS. Huff’s strength is his coverage skills. He is seen by some as a potential corner. With Landry, the Colts weakness at safety is coverage. Huff would compliment Landry.
Round 6: Howard Jones – OLB – While I am hoping Werner will continue to develop, the Colts need some help with the pass rush. Jones is athletic and had great production, but comes from a small school.
Round 7: Glenn Carson - ILB - An under-the-radar linebacker from Penn State noted for his heart and toughness.
Round 7(2): Zach Kerr – DT – At 6’2" and 330 pounds, Kerr is a nose tackle, but he can get some push in the pass rush. Last season he had 5.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks.
Have at it.
