The Indianapolis Colts made a splash when free agency opened by trading for the San Francisco defensive tackle DeForest Buckner and signing free-agent quarterback Philip Rivers to a one-year deal.
The Colts are looking forward to a new season with Philip Rivers as their quarterback and a defensive line bolstered by young talent and a quarterback that is willing to take deep shots and be aggressive. With that being said, the Colts now need to look to find a replacement for T.Y Hilton and more weapons on offense. Signing Costanzo was a big boost to the best offensive line in the NFL.
With Marlon Mack back healthy, this team could go anywhere and this is why I think the Colts will go offense in the first round to help build weapons around a future quarterback.
Even though the Colts still have some cap space to use around free agency, they probably won’t sign any other players who take a lot of cap space. Their space is running dry as it is, and they have guys up for extensions in coming up sooner than they think.
But clearly the signing of Buckner and Rivers have changed how the team will approach the draft. Coupled with the fact that they no longer have a first-round pick and this draft suddenly looks a lot different than it did in the preceding weeks.
