The Indianapolis Colts aren’t widely expected to make any moves ahead of the NFL trade deadline at 4 p.m. Tuesday, and GM Chris Ballard isn’t your typical roster builder wanting to give away draft picks for an aged talent either.
Ballard has often stated that “we won’t panic” in regards to making moves and giving away draft capital, however, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Colts may be interested in Ryan Kerrigan of the Washington Redskins, or at least have made a call to that effect.
Frustration growing around the league with the Bengals and Skins, who refuse to engage in meaningful trade talks ahead of Tuesday's deadline: https://t.co/gb9wGQNYO7— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) October 27, 2019
La Canfora states that the Redskins are being difficult to deal with despite their team being awful, and aren’t in a hurry to give up team leaders, in spite of their current state, and a roster rebuild looking to be several years from being complete.
There aren’t many other rumors out there linking the Colts to anyone, but Kerrigan would be a nice addition on the surface.
In theory, the Colts’ pick that they ultimately received from the Skins would get better as they get worse, and the Colts would have a legit Edge defender rotation as well. On the other hand, Ben Banogu received a lot of snaps yesterday, and the Colts don’t really seem to be without talent at the position even though Kemoko Turay is lost for the season.
Stay tuned for any further rumors regarding the Colts as the deadline approaches.
