According to Jason La Canfora, while on an Oakland radio show and in an interview with CBS sports HQ, the Colts are one of three teams, including the Bills and Jets, to reach out to the Oakland Raiders to inquire the availability of All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack.

On CBS Sports HQ, La Canfora mentions the Colts being interested in Mack around the 1:45 mark in the video. Additionally, the Colts have already done their due diligence on how adding Mack would affect them from a salary cap and what potential compensation they’d be willing to give up.

Of course, take this with a grain of salt as La Canfora tends to be wrong when it comes to the Colts. However, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Colts GM Chris Ballard reach out about acquiring top-tier talent. New head coach Jon Gruden’s appears disinterested in keeping around players prior to his arrival and, to date, has not reportedly spoken with Mack.

If Mack is available for a reasonable price tag, the Colts should jump at the opportunity. It all depends on what Jon Gruden wants as compensation. Judging Gruden’s past trade “values” it may not be as high as some believe.

    No. I like mediocre defense that struggles to put any pressure on the QB.
