Darius Leonard and Kenny Moore are exhausted after unsuccessfully recruiting free agents to Colts
Darius Leonard and Kenny Moore have been doing their best to recruit free agents to the Indianapolis Colts.
Free agency has been relatively quiet for the Indianapolis Colts but it isn’t because of a lack of player engagement. Indy’s star defenders have been the most active part of the Colts’ offseason.
Since the start of the legal tampering period on Monday, linebacker Darius Leonard and defensive back Kenny Moore have been active on Twitter reaching out to every free agent possible.
Many fans around the league have noticed their efforts to help upgrade Indy’s roster.
Despite Leonard and Moore’s commitment to recruit free agents every hour of the day, things have still been slow on the market for the Colts.
Through Thursday morning, Indianapolis has only signed five players, four who were with the team last season and one new acquisition in Brandon Facyson.
Although the Colts haven’t been super active in free agency, they were able to trade for Yannick Ngakoue, sending Rock Ya-Sin to the Las Vegas Raiders. A move that was bittersweet for Leonard and Moore.
The majority of the free agents that Leonard and Moore have been recruiting are still available and could actually land with Indianapolis. However, both Moore and Leonard seem to be tapping out of their recruiting roles.
Although they may be tired, hope isn’t dead for the Colts. The majority of the NFL seems to be at a standstill as everyone waits to see where Deshaun Watson will be traded.
After that happens, Indianapolis will have a better idea of who their quarterback options will be and will likely answer that question first. That will help in the recruitment of other free agents.
So as Darius Leonard and Kenny Moore are tagging out, Chris Ballard and the Colts may finally be ready to tag in and get some more free agents to Indianapolis.
