4 Players Colts should pursue to replace Eric Fisher
Colts should pursue Terron Armstead
If Indianapolis did have a top target at the tackle position, it should be Terron Armstead. Armstead will be a free agent after playing nine seasons with the New Orleans Saints.
In those nine seasons, Armstead has been regarded as one of the best left tackles in football, while being selected to three Pro Bowls.
Armstead was the trusted protector of Drew Brees’ blindside, but he thrives in pass protection and run blocking.
Adding Armstead to an already strong Colts offensive line will make it undoubtedly the best in the NFL. They’d be able to block for Jonathan Taylor at an elite level while also giving Carson Wentz plenty of time in the pocket.
The biggest challenge of getting Armstead to Indy will be that it’ll likely come down to a bidding war. Armstead will be just 31 years old at the start of next season and is still in his prime.
He is regarded as one of the top free agents of this pending free agency cycle, so he will have a lot of suitors.
Indianapolis is projected to have the eighth-most cap space with just under $46 million this offseason, so the money will be there to offer Armstead. Additionally, the Colts can sell the elite running game as a reason Armstead should join Indy.
