NFL free agency has been busy, and many of the top names have already signed fresh deals. But that doesn't mean there isn't a ton of talent still available out there.

One of the top available playmakers is wide receiver Mike Williams, and the Indianapolis Colts were recently listed as a top potential landing spot for Williams by David Kenyon of Bleacher Report. Williams, who tore his ACL early on last season, is looking for a new NFL home after spending the first seven seasons of his career with the Los Angeles Chargers.

From Bleacher Report:

"Mike Williams is recovering from a torn left ACL, yet he's arguably the best wideout who remains available in free agency. The Los Angeles Chargers released the veteran before his age-30 campaign because of a cap crunch, but he's still deserving of a substantial contract. . . . Meanwhile, if Williams is looking to join a playoff threat, the Indianapolis Colts would be a quality landing spot."

Williams is coming off of a tough injury, but at 29 years old, he should still have some productive football ahead of him, and he's confident that his days of being an impact player in the league are far from over.

"I know what I'm capable of doing," Williams said earlier this year. "I know I'm going to come back stronger, faster and better after this injury, so I just got to focus on what I can focus on and that's me getting back better."

The Colts already paid a pretty penny for wide receiver play this offseason, as the team locked up Michael Pittman Jr. on a three-year deal worth $70 million. With that deal already on the books it's fair to wonder if the Colts would want to offer a second sizeable contract to another receiver.

If they did, Pittman Jr. and Williams could potentially form an extremely productive receiving duo for second-year quarterback Anthony Richardson. At the end of the day, it seems somewhat unlikely that Williams will be a member of the Colts next season, but crazier things have happened.
