If there were any lingering questions about Michael Pittman's role on the Colts heading into the final year of his rookie contract, he did a great job answering them. In his fourth NFL season, Pittman set a career-high in receptions (109) and receiving yards (1152) – it was the first time as a pro that he had over 100 catches.

And when the new league season begins in early March, he'll headline a class of Colts free agents that includes defensive lineman Grover Stewart, quarterback Gardner Minshew, and running back Zack Moss. There's been plenty of speculation that the Colts will use the franchise tag on Pittman, who would then make a fully-guaranteed $20 million next season. That would give the Colts another season to try and work out a longterm deal, and told reporters back in January that he wasn't even necessarily against it.

Besides Pittman, there will be a ton of interest in where Minshew ends up this offseason. He's headed into free agency as a Pro Bowler, which never hurts contract negotiations. As always, there will be plenty of teams lining up for free agent QBs, and with Kirk Cousins and Baker Mayfield expected to return to their respective teams, Minshew will probably have a chance to compete for a starting job somewhere. With Anthony Richardson already throwing well ahead of schedule, even competing for QB1 may be more tempting than returning to Indy.
