The Colts will be in the market for offensive line help this offseason, and ever since the Philadelphia Eagles released veteran lineman Todd Herremans, we have wondered whether he would be an option for the Colts.
According to PhillyMag.com's Tim McManus, Herremans is visiting the Colts today.

The visit makes a lot of sense. First off, Colts general manager Ryan Grigson worked for many years for the Eagles, and so he knows Herremans well. We saw him go after a former Eagles lineman a couple of years ago in Winston Justice, and it would make sense that he might target linemen that he knows well. Secondly, Herremans is a very versatile lineman, which is exactly what the Colts love from their players. Herremans can play four of the five positions along the line and play them well - both tackle spots and both guard spots. And thirdly, the Colts need help most of all at the right guard position, and Herremans has played right guard for the last two years with the Eagles. He is a good lineman with plenty of experience, starting 124 games and playing in 127 over his ten-year career with the Eagles. He was injured last year with a torn biceps and will turn 33-years old this fall, but those shouldn't be factors that keep the Colts from bringing him in.
It sounds like Todd Herremans is visiting the Colts today, and he would make a lot of sense for the team to sign to help their offensive line.
