3 free agents the Colts can still sign to address their post-draft needs
By John Makuch
1. Colts can sign running back Kareem Hunt
When you have a young quarterback, you give him weapons, and Kareem Hunt is a weapon that can make tons of plays out there. He is still under 30, a great receiving back, and relief for Jonathan Taylor who is expected to receive quite a bit of work this upcoming season.
This team does have Zack Moss and Deon Jackson who both had their bright moments, but Hunt would be a true two to the one-two punch that would be Taylor and Hunt.
Also, if Taylor were to deal with injury again, Hunt is a player who can fill in when necessary, and be a regular back in an offense. Or, you would give Jackson the bulk of the carries, and you would still have Hunt as your third-down, or two running back sets.
He still has great speed, runs hard, and can expand a playbook for an offense looking to develop a guy like Richardson. This signing would show the Colts are all in on their young quarterback, and to give him a young receiving core, one of the best running backs in football, and then to add the swiss army knife that is Hunt, that would be special.
