Open Letter to Colts Management....Corner Backs...

Corner Backs are/will be the big winners in Free Agency this year.

Demand exceeds supply in a league where five and six defensive back formations are the rule more than the exception. Teams need four competent CBs for two main reasons.

- To guard against injury

- NFL offenses and the modern NFL trend towards the passing game have created more offenses that can expose a team's weakest link in a defensive backfield. More than ever a defense is only as strong as its weakest link.

The situation is somewhat analagous to a starting rotation in baseball. If you get a top rate #1 CB your #2's job gets easier...and on down the line. Darius Butler looks a whole better as a #3.

This trend will spill over to the NFL draft for functional and financial reasons. At #59 we could see up to 10 DBs off the board by the time we pick.

If Colts had concerns about how hard Vontae Davis would play hard after signing a big contract then so be it. The market will give him that contract and we will be in a CB hole.
