Next moves the Colts need to make after re-signing Michael Pittman Jr.

They kept him in Indy, so what's next?

Maybe the biggest offseason priority for the Indianapolis Colts was taken care of early on Monday morning.

The Colts reached an agreement to keep star wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. in Indianapolis for the next three seasons.

Pittman gets three years and up to $70 million, with $46 million in guarantees.

The Colts' leading receiver comes back to a core featuring Jonathan Taylor and Anthony Richardson, but what do the Colts need to do now? They still have a good chunk of cap space to work with, so with that in mind, these are three priorities for the Colts, going forward.

1. Find another offensive weapon

The expectation for Indy, even after re-signing Pittman, was that this offense needs another playmaker. Josh Downs and Alec Pierce aren't enough. The tight end room is also full of a bunch of guys who are better as a TE2 option. There aren't a lot of options out there in free agency in terms of true playmakers, so the Colts may end up going the route of the draft if need be.

When free agency started, the options included guys like Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, Calvin Ridley, Odell Beckham Jr., Darnell Mooney, among others in terms of wideouts. As for tight end, there aren't a lot. Noah Fant, Adam Trautman and Gerald Everett are the most notable names.

2. Sign an edge rusher

On the other hand, there are plenty of edge rushers available in free agency. The big names include guys like Danielle Hunter and Za'Darius Smith, but the pool runs pretty deep. The Colts need to address the pass rush in a big way. This is also a position they could opt to look at with their first-round pick, as you might see a run on pass rushers right around where they're picking.

3. Make a move at cornerback (re-sign Kenny Moore?)

It is no secret that the Colts need to address their secondary, which mostly includes younger and unproven guys. Kenny Moore should be a priority, but what if he decides to sign elsewhere? The Colts desperately need some help in their secondary, especially at corner.

Whether it's an offensive playmaker, and edge rusher or a cornerback, expect the Colts to adddress these needs sooner rather than later, as free agency continues to heat up and we inch closer to the draft.
