Bleacher Report gives Colts a “To-Do List” to help finish offseason
By Brad Marr
Bleacher Report made a To-Do list for each NFL team, and the options for the Indianapolis Colts will assure dominance for years to come.
The Indianapolis Colts began the NFL offseason in an unorthodox fashion with moves that raised questions and concerns from the fans, and even players, about the future success of the team. Luckily thus far, there seems to not be any more head-scratching.
After a Week 18 debacle against the Jacksonville Jaguars, it became clear to front office leaders the future at the quarterback position was not one involving Carson Wentz. The Colts solved that situation by trading him to the Washington Commanders for draft capital, then acquiring the 2016 NFL MVP Matt Ryan from the Atlanta Falcons.
But wait, there’s more! That wasn’t the only trade Indy had their hands in. The Colts bolstered their pass rush in yet another trade that sent 2018 draft pick Rock Ya-Sin to the Las Vegas Raiders for a defensive end that finished 2021 with 10 sacks on the season in Yannick Ngakoue.
To top off what seemed to be an already profound offseason, Indianapolis flew a former DPOY to Indy and locked in a two-year deal with CB Stephon Gilmore. Landing Gilly Lock is a surefire way to improve any NFL defense, putting him on one of the NFL’s elite groups is just excruciating for the opposing teams on the schedule.
Most people believe these moves are enticing enough to put the Colts over the top in 2022, but Bleacher Report is here to remind everyone there is still business to conduct to keep the horses running, and frankly I have to agree.
There are three moves noted on Bleacher Report’s To-Do-List that the Colts absolutely have to lock-in. Let’s take a look.
