Today we finish up with our look at the Indianapolis Colts position by position review with the safety corps as they head into this pivotal offseason.
With the safety group bringing up the caboose in this series, it also happens to be one of the most interesting of all of the units on the roster. The Colts have several in-house free agents, including Clayton Geathers and Matthias Farley, as well as some of the team’s depth pieces from the 2018 season.
The Colts have a decent tertiary group of safeties throughout the roster who aren’t free agents at this time, and also will have their piece at the position in which they’ll hope to build around on the backend of the defense -- Malik Hooker.
It’s reasonable to think that either Geathers or Farley could in fact be re-signed previous to free agency being kicked off as they’ve both been successful in their own ways, and offer redeemable skill sets going forward. Both have dealt with injury issues as of late, but with a scheme needing a healthy group of diversity, it’s even possible that they both return to the horseshoe in 2019.
On the other hand, there are a ton of capable safeties throughout the NFL who are set to become free agents at the end of the league year as well. Landon Collins headlines the group for the most part, Adrian Amos is another intriguing name out there, but they could both easily be re-signed by their respective teams as well.
There are others out there who have drawn interest from the Colts recently like Tre Boston and Kenny Vacarro, but the safety group overall is a deep one to dig in to in free agency. Either way, it’ll be one of the most interesting positions to watch for the Colts going forward previous to the NFL Draft in April.
