Players who won’t be returning to Colts

Gardner Minshew, QB
Two Years, $25 Million ($15 Million Guaranteed)
Las Vegas Raiders

While the Colts were hoping to bring Gardner Minshew back on similar deal as last season, it was not a surprise that he chose to sign with the Las Vegas Raiders where he will not only get a substantial raise but, most importantly, an opportunity to start and have a meaningful impact.

Jacob Martin, EDGE
Terms Not Disclosed
Chicago Bears

Jacob Martin joins his fifth team in his NFL career. He will join the Chicago Bears as a depth and rotational piece in a similar scheme with their Head Coach Matt Eberflus.

Zack Moss, RB
Two Years, $8 Million ($3 Million Guaranteed)
Cincinnati Bengals

Like Gardner Minshew, this allows Zack Moss some more money and meaningful playing time. Moss expressed interest in returning to Indianapolis alongside Taylor, but it seemed inevitable that he would move on to another team. With Joe Mixon being traded to Houston, Moss will have the opportunity to start from day one in Cincinnati.

Isaiah McKenzie, WR
Terms Not Disclosed
New York Giants

Isaiah McKenzie came in with some intrigue but never really fit in with this group. He turned out to be a little used gadget guy and had minimal impact on special teams. He finished the season on suspension, which the team has still not divulged the reason, but his exit was expected this offseason.
