Realistic Colts offseason

I know there will be many disagreements for this but we know as Colt Fans we ususally aren't huge in free agency so I didn't add huge names like how everyone believes we can get Mack but the browns have 40+M in Cap and only 6 free agents so Here is a reason for each player.

A.Vinatieri: Consistent and still has a factor he's had for many years

P.Mcafee: Top 5 punter very needed for our team

V.Davis: We wont get much better and he's our second best defensive payer

S.Brown: Special Teams

J.Gordy: Good Depth

J.Reitz: Good Depth

Free Agent departures: Not worth it

G.Toler: Injuries

RJF: Overpaid

S.Satele: Dont get me started

K.Sheppard: Bad

C.Lynch: Not worth it

T.Choice: Overrated

M.Harvey: Bad

S.Havili: Bad, Injury Prone

C.Rainey Injury


G.Schwartz: Very needed For passing and Blocking

C.Clemons: Needed Leadership and pass coverage to allow L.Landry to improve

W.Woodyard: Leadership and Consistency

A.Jones: Pagano's old team and very needed for our scheme

D.Mcculster: Very useful in many phases

D.Te'o-Nesheim: Great Depth and helpful if injuries occur

F.Velasco: Underrated and cheap and very good


K.Fuller: Great second corner

D.Jones: Good Skill and help with run support

D.Kennard: Good Depth

L.Washington: Underrated and helpful on deep balls

M.Bullough: Good Depth

C.Shaw: Backup QB

Bold means very important to team

Italic Means Depth

Underline is new additions to roster

Some in more than once

Practice Squad (not against Cap):

C.Harnish QB, D.Herron RB, Jack Doyle TE, ,Marcus Burley CB,Griff Whalen WR, J.Pendleton DT , Andy Studebaker DE, Thomas Austin OG

We’d end with around 7-12M in cap for injuries and future years.

This is more possible then us getting like many say Verner, Mack and Byrd so I wanna keep it how Colts always do and I reinforce the line and All defense in many phases.
