Indianapolis Colts free agency live blog: Rumors, signings, and more

New, comments

Tracking all of the latest rumors, signings, and updates from free agency as it pertains to the Indianapolis Colts.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Happy New Year!  At 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9, 2016, the new NFL league year started, and with it came the beginning of free agency.  The first few moments of free agency are fast and full of plenty of moves, as plenty of players and teams had already agreed to deals in principle over the past few days during the "legal tampering period" (yeah, they need to find a better name for that).

The Colts aren't expected to be major players in free agency this year unlike in years past, but we still could see them make a few moves - particularly when it comes to an offensive lineman or pass rusher.  At Stampede Blue, we'll have individual posts about anything noteworthy relating to the Cots, but here you can keep track of them in one place as we'll list them here as well.  Furthermore, you can use the comments section as an open thread to discuss all things free agency today.

Below, you'll find a section relating to the Colts and free agency, as well as the list of each Colts free agent and any news or rumors on each of them.
