Colts agree to terms with Ryan Kelly

The Indianapolis Colts have agreed to terms with their first round pick, center Ryan Kelly. The Indianapolis Colts tonight announced that they have agreed to terms with first round pick Ryan Kelly, making him the first of their eight draft picks to agree to his contract. We calculated that Kelly's contract will likely be somewhere around a $10,556,949 deal over the course of four years, with a cap hit of $1,919,253 in year one.  Those aren't official numbers, but they are based off of the number 18 draft slot and the projection for this year, meaning that it's probably pretty close to...

Jim Irsay: Andrew Luck and Henry Anderson are arguably Colts' two best players

Colts owner Jim Irsay showed high praise to defensive lineman Henry Anderson on Saturday, mentioning him in connection with Andrew Luck as "arguably our two best players." As Colts defensive lineman Henry Anderson met with the media yesterday and talked about his rookie season and recovery from injury, there has been some talk about him over the past day.  One thing that not many people have mentioned, however, is what Colts owner Jim Irsay said about him on Saturday. It's buried in the transcripts and something that one would really only notice if reading through them (yeah, that's what...

Colts pass rush is still a concern after draft

The Colts had a nice draft, but they didn't really address the pass rush, leaving a glaring hole on the roster. The Indianapolis Colts had an impressive draft.  They added a sure-fire starter to their offensive line, two other great value linemen, a guy who will compete to be their backup center, a talented safety who could be a potential starter down the road, a nice pass-rushing defensive lineman, a physical inside linebacker, and, in the seventh round, an edge rusher. While the team had a good draft, it's that edge rusher position that still prompts concern.  Entering the offseason,...

NFL Draft Grades 2016: Mel Kiper grades Colts' 2016 draft class

ESPN's Mel Kiper has handed out his draft grades for the 2016 NFL Draft, including a B for the Indianapolis Colts. For months, national "analysts" had been arguing for the Colts to address their offensive line in the 2016 NFL Draft, and the franchise definitely did just that.  In fact, of their eight picks in the draft, the Colts spent four of them on the offensive line.  Because of that, it makes sense why several of those same national "analysts" like the team's draft class. One such person is ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., who graded each team's draft and gave the Colts a "B" grade - tied for...

Colts undrafted free agent tracker

Keeping track of the undrafted free agents rumored to be signing with the Colts. The 2016 NFL Draft is concluding, and with it comes the frenzy of undrafted free agency.  Teams place calls to various players in an effort to sign them and bring them in to work out in rookie minicamp and throughout offseason work into training camp. These players can be a very nice complement to a draft class, and every year we see several undrafted free agents make rosters around the NFL.  For the Colts, there seems to be an undrafted player every year who makes the team, and last year it was Yale running...

NFL Draft Grades 2016: Grades for all eight Indianapolis Colts picks

The Colts had eight picks in the 2016 NFL Draft, and we assign grades for each of them right here. The 2016 NFL Draft has concluded, and the Indianapolis Colts made eight picks throughout the seven rounds.  Of course, grading those picks at this point in time is a very subjective venture that is sure to be wrong, but people do it any way just for the heck of it.  That's what we're doing here, and we're using these grades basically as a way to judge the initial reaction to the picks.  Below, you'll find a brief write-up of each pick and my grade for them, as well as the grade from our...

Colts have made progress on Andrew Luck's contract extension

Colts owner Jim Irsay said that the Colts have had "serious discussions" on Andrew Luck's contract extension and that progress has been made. The Colts are in the midst of a draft in which they have prioritized protecting the quarterback, but that of course means keeping that quarterback around long-term.  The Colts have made no secret about the fact that they hope to get Andrew Luck signed to a long-term contract extension this offseason, and it's expected to come at some point. Owner Jim Irsay, speaking with the media today about the Colts' draft, said that they have had "serious...

2016 NFL Mock Draft: Indianapolis Colts Select OLB Darron Lee at No. 18

With the No. 18 pick in the 2016 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select... Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio State The selection and write-up were made by fjblessi: After 3 straight years of winning the AFC South and advancing further into the playoff each year, the 2015 Colts regressed to the norm and went 8 and 8.  The fall from Super Bowl contender to out of the playoffs showed the weaknesses of the roster which had been hidden by the play of their franchise QB, Andrew Luck.   The 2015 spending spree to bring in aging veterans to "put them over the top" proved to be a...

Ryan Grigson emphatically says Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is "fine"

Colts general manager Ryan Grigson emphatically said that quarterback Andrew Luck is "fine" in light of the quarterback's comments on Monday about not being 100% yet. When the Indianapolis Colts reported for the start of offseason workouts on Monday, all eyes were on quarterback Andrew Luck, and he created some headlines with his comments.  Asked if he was feeling 100% yet after missing nine games last year due to injury, Luck said no and that he still had some work to do. He also said that his kidney is fine and that his shoulder is doing good, but that didn't stop Colts fans from...

2016 NFL mock draft: Colts add Notre Dame WR Will Fuller in first round

With the 18th pick in the Arrowhead Pride mock draft, Colts GM 3Matt wine selects... Notre Dame WR Will Fuller Ideally, for the Colts Ron Staley falls here, but even in that unlikely situation you have to take Jim Irsay into account. Noah Spence is also an option, but Irsay would veto that as well, insisting on finding someone else for Andrew Luck to throw to, even though Luck ended the season with a lacerated kidney and Charlie Whitehurt and Josh Freeman took meaningful snaps at QB. Irsay mumbled something about who needs a kidney when I argued for an offensive lineman. Then when it was...

Andrew Luck not 100% healthy yet, but feeling "really, really good"

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck admitted today that he's not 100% healthy yet, but he's feeling "really, really good." The Indianapolis Colts returned to work today, and all eyes were on Andrew Luck.  The Colts' franchise quarterback who missed nine games due to injury last year is looking to turn the page to 2016, but as he does so he needs to first make sure that he's healthy moving forward. Luck today said that he's ready to go and that he is feeling good, but he also seemed to hint at the fact that he's still recovering. "No, I still have some work to do, certainly," Luck said when...

Andrew Luck looking to put difficult 2015 season behind him as Colts begin offseason workouts

It was a rough 2015 season for Andrew Luck, but the Colts and their quarterback are putting last year behind them and moving on to 2016 as they begin offseason workouts today. By all accounts, 2015 was a very rough year for Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.  He missed nine games due to injuries - he dealt with shoulder and rib injuries, in addition to a lacerated kidney and torn abdominal muscle - and in the seven games that he did play, he turned the football over 13 times (12 interceptions and one fumble lost). Though that memory of Luck's struggles is fresh in the minds of many, the Colts...
