4 soon-to-be free agents that the Colts must re-sign this offseason
2. Parris Campbell earned a second contract with Colts
Indianapolis having an underwhelming season is disappointing for a lot of reasons. But one of the biggest reasons it’s disappointing is because it hasn’t allowed for the arrival of Parris Campbell to really be appreciated. After facing so many setbacks in his first three seasons in the NFL, Campbell played an entire 17-game season this year and was an actual contributor to the offense.
Parris caught 63 passes for 623 yards and three touchdowns; all second-most on the team behind only Michael Pittman Jr. he also added five carries for 58 yards. For comparison, in Campbell’s first three seasons combined, he played in just 15 games and only caught 34 passes for 360 yards and two touchdowns. Not only did Campbell show that he can stay healthy but he showed that he is an offensive threat in the NFL.
Now it’s time for the Colts to give him a second contract so that he can continue to prove himself and keep developing. Additionally, Indianapolis can’t really afford to lose weapons. Of course, Indy has Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman Jr. and also saw phenomenal glimpses from the rookie weapons but the offense still doesn’t have the privilege to let playmakers walk away.
After what Campbell showcased this year, there should be restored promise and optimism around his name and the Colts should be excited to re-sign him to see what more he can offer to Indianapolis’ offense as he continues to get better.
