The trade deadline approaches in a couple of hours. Will the Colts make a move and bring someone in? Or will they trade someone away?
Today is the trade deadline in the NFL. The deadline is at 4pm. With the deadline only a couple of hours away, it’s time to examine the Colts’ roster. Will they make a move? Do they need to make a move? Will they give someone away for a draft pick?
Based on everything Chris Ballard has said, they probably won’t make a move. Ballard wants to build through the draft as opposed to trades or free agency. That does leave the possibility open that they could trade someone away for a draft pick.
But that doesn’t look likely either. The Colts don’t have anyone that they want to trade away, and anyone who any other team would want is likely untouchable. Besides, the Colts have a decent amount of draft picks in next year’s draft anyways.
Looking at their roster, it would make sense for them to stand pat. They are right in the middle of the league in terms of record. No one player would put them over the hump. They should keep who they have now and see if they can make the playoffs.
If they can’t make the playoffs, then odds are they will have a top 10 pick. That pick will go along with their rebuild plan. But making a move before the deadline is not a smart thing for the Colts right now.
