2018 Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Cornerback Aaron Colvin


The Colts may be looking for a slot cornerback in free agency this offseason, and Aaron Colvin is one of the league’s best.

If the Colts can re-sign Rashaan Melvin and Quincy Wilson takes a step forward in his second NFL season, Indianapolis should have a solid pair of outside cornerbacks in 2018.

However, slot cornerback is a position where the Colts could use an upgrade.

According to Pro Football Focus, Aaron Colvin finished sixth in the league in fewest yards allowed per coverage snap, he only allowed a reception once out of every ten coverage snaps, and he earned an overall grade of 78.5 on a 100-point scale.

At age 26, Colvin just finished the final season of his rookie contract with the Jaguars, and he was an underrated member of the best pass defense in the league last season.

Slot cornerbacks usually come relatively cheap in free agency as the NFL has not fully realized how valuable of a position it is. Adding Colvin to a secondary including a healthy Malik Hooker, Rashaan Melvin, Quincy Wilson, and Clayton Geathers would guarantee that the Colts’ pass defense will perform much better than they did last season.
