According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Indianapolis Colts are not expected to tender restricted free agent defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth (via his representation), making him an unrestricted free agent:

The former 2018 undrafted free agent of the New Orleans Saints recorded 16 tackles (11 solo), 3.0 sacks, and a pass defensed during 16 games (1 start) for the Colts in 2021.

Per PFF (subscription), Stallworth was their 53rd best graded interior defender this past season with a +60.9 overall grade.

As a rotational one-technique defensive tackle, Stallworth, at a listed 6’2”, 293 pounds, was a quality backup for the Colts, who provided some interior pass rushing push:

While it’s not a foregone conclusion that Stallworth does not return to Indianapolis, this at least somewhat limits his chances one would reasonably think.
