The Indianapolis Colts will have to find a replacement for starting left tackle Eric Fisher.
The Indianapolis Colts are beginning their offseason plans earlier than expected. Towards the back half of the season, it looked like Indy would make a run at the Super Bowl.
After closing the season with two disappointing losses, Indianapolis’ focus is now on the 2022 season.
One of the Colts biggest priorities will be addressing the left tackle position. Veteran Eric Fisher started at the spot this season, but he is set to be a free agent.
After Fisher’s mediocre year, it’s unlikely that Indy will want to bring him back. Especially considering that this free agency class will be loaded with talented tackles and Indianapolis will have the cap space to go after them.
With that in mind, here are 4 tackles Indianapolis should pursue to replace Eric Fisher.
Colts should pursue Duane Brown
The 14-year veteran played his first nine seasons with Houston, and has been selected to four Pro Bowls in his career.
As Brown has aged, he has continued to be a quality starting tackle. With his current contract coming to an end, Brown has expressed that he isn’t ready to retire and would love to stay in Seattle if the business can be worked out.
However, the NFL has shown countless times that business doesn’t always play out how everyone desires. That means it’s no guarantee that Brown returns to Seattle.
If he and the Seahawks are unable to agree on a deal, Indianapolis should explore the possibility. Brown will be 37 at the start of next season, so he shouldn’t be Indy’s no. 1 target at the position, but he can come in on a one-year deal and offer quality play.
