EDTShareTweetShareShareHow did the Colts’ AFC rivals do in free-agency?Photo by Adam Glanzman/Getty ImagesAFC South rivalsPhoto by Sam Greenwood/Getty ImagesHouston TexansSigned: Matt Kalil, left tackle. Tashaun Gipson, safety. Bradley Roby, cornerback. Lost: Demaryius Thomas, wide receiver. Kevin Johnson, cornerback. Tyrann Mathieu, safety. Kareem Jackson, secondary. Kendall Lamm, tackleThe Texans added players in the same position they lost. Still, the new acquisitions are considerably worse than the players they are replacing. Gipson is nowhere near the talent level of Mathieu, and Kareem Jackson is a much more consistent player than Bradley Roby. The fact that this team still needs to sign franchise pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney to a long-term contract must have also been influential in a slow free-agency.Jacksonville JaguarsSigned: Nick Foles, quarterback. Jake Ryan, linebacker. Chris Conley, receiver. Geoff Swaim, tight end.Lost: Malik Jackson, defensive tackle. Blake Bortles, quarterback. T.J Yeldon, running back. Tashaun Gipson, safety. Donte Moncrief, receiver.Nick Foles got a huge contract from the Jaguars, in what was perhaps the riskiest move of free-agency. The Jaguars’ future depends solely on one question: “Which Foles are they getting?” Do they get the Super Bowl champion with an incredible playoff magic and winning pedigree, or do they get the quarterback that went 4-7 as the Rams starter, with 7 touchdowns and 10 picks?Tennessee TitansSigned: Rodger Saffold, guard. Adam Humphries, receiver. Cameron Wake, defensive end. Lost: Josh Kline, guard. Luke Stocker, tight end.The Titans made Saffold the highest paid guard in the League, a bold move for someone not named Quenton Nelson or Zach Martin. They also gave a big contract to slot receiver Adam Humphries. They did not lose any significant amount of talent, so if Mariota finally develops into a franchise quarterback they could transform into a dangerous team, but knowing the Titans, everything that could go wrong will go wrong, and they will rot away in mediocrity.AFC Playoff rivalsPhoto by Al Bello/Getty ImagesNew England PatriotsSigned: Mike Pennel, defensive end. Brandon Bolden, running back. Matt LaCosse, tight end. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, tight end.Lost: Trey Flowers, defensive end. Eric Rowe, cornerback. Cordarrelle Patterson, wide receiver/returner. Trent Brown, left tackle. Malcolm Brown, defensive tackle. Dwayne Allen Jordan Wilkins Color Rush Jersey , tight end. Rob Gronkowski (R), tight endOnce again, free-agency comes and goes and it seems like the Patriots lost nearly all of their talent while signing plenty of scrubs and trash from other teams. Learning from past mistakes, I will not judge what seems like one of the worst offseasons in Patriots history, so when Matt LaCosse posts a 50/750/8 line next season it seems like I knew it would happen.Kansas City ChiefsSigned: Tyrann Mathieu, safety. Alex Okafor, defensive end. Damien Wilson, outside linebacker. Bashaud Breeland, cornerback.Lost: Eric Berry, safety. Justin Houston, outside linebacker. Dee Ford, outside linebacker. Mitch Morse, center. Steven Nelson, cornerback. Chris Conley, receiver. Kareem Hunt, running back(*)The Chiefs defense lost an alarming amount of talent and longtime franchise players. Signing Tyrann Mathieu helps, but the loss of players like Berry, Houston and Ford will surely hurt the culture and overall talent of the defense. The Chiefs also lost starting cornerback Steven Nelson and starting center Mitch Morse. Kansas might be the team that lost the most talent in free-agency. Furthermore, star wide receiver Tyreek Hill could be suspended due to domestic violence. Ouch.Los Angeles ChargersSigned: Tyrod Taylor, quarterback. Thomas Davis, linebacker. Lost: Jason Verrett, cornerback. Tyrell Williams, wide receiver. Darius Philon, defensive tackle.Overall it was a quiet free-agency for the Chargers. Thomas Davis is a nice addition to the linebacker group and will provide some much needed leadership on the defensive side of the ball. Losing #2 receiver Tyrell Williams hurts the offense, as he was incredibly productive in his contract year. Philon and Verrett were nice defensive pieces, but they were not essential.Baltimore RavensSigned: Mark Ingram, running back. Earl Thomas, safety. Justin Bethel, cornerback.Lost: C.J Mosley, linebacker. Za’Darius Smith, outside linebacker. John Brown, receiver. Eric Weddle, safety. Terrell Suggs, outside linebacker.The Ravens signed Ingram to be the power running back their offense desperately needed, and he will form a nice duo with Lamar Jackson. Earl Thomas has not been the same player he was before but can still provide above-average play at safety. Still, this team lost and absurd amount of talent on defense. Losing 4 starters on one side of the ball is insane. Mosley was one of the best linebackers in the NFL. Smith was a very productive pass rusher, and Suggs and Weddle were solid veteran presences. Emerging threatsPhoto by Joe Robbins/Getty ImagesCleveland BrownsSigned: Odell Beckham Jr. (trade), wide receiver. Olivier Vernon (trade), defensive end. Sheldon Richardson, defensive end. Morgan Burnett, safety. Kendall Lamm, tackle. Kareem Hunt, running back.Lost: Tyrod Taylor, quarterback. Breshad Perriman https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Henry-Anderson-Jersey , receiver. E.J Gaines, cornerback.The Browns are being labeled as one of the biggest winners in the off-season after trading for star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr, and also getting Olivier Vernon, Sheldon Richardson and Kareem Hunt (after an 8 game suspension). In the process, they lost backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor, Breshad Perriman and E.J Gaines, none of those are big losses. On paper, the Browns might look like Super Bowl contenders, but taking a deeper look, there are some reasons for concern. Baker Mayfield went 1-5 against teams above .500 last season. The Browns locker room is filled with big egos, couple this along with a rookie head coach who may over his head and you have a perfect recipe for disaster. In case you did not notice, I am not sold on the Browns just yet.New York JetsSigned: Le’Veon Bell, running back. C.J Mosley, linebacker. Jamison Crowder, wide receiver. Chandler Catanzaro, kickerLost: James Carpenter, guard. Buster Skrine, cornerback. Jason Myers, kicker. Spencer Long, center. Mike Pennel, defensive end. The Jets were by far free-agency’s biggest spenders. Bell and Mosley are game-changing talents, and were paid as such. Crowder is a solid receiver who will help Darnold immediately. On the downside, the Jets lost an incredible amount of depth, while they did not solve their biggest problems (offensive line, secondary). The Jets lost two key members of the offensive line in Carpenter and Long, while also losing always reliable kicker Jason Myers, and solid depth defensive players Pennel and Skrine.Overall, the rest of the AFC got much weaker in my opinion. The biggest rivals lost plenty of starters and solid talent, while the emerging threats still have plenty of questions to answer before being considered serious contenders. If Chris Ballard drafts another solid class with immediate contributors, then the Colts could surprisingly have one of the best all- around rosters in the entire AFC.

Colts AnalysisWay too early prediction of the Colts 2019 Roster: Summer Break EditionNew,70commentsEDTThe 2019 NFL season is still in its infancy and things have started to pick up steam for the Indianapolis Colts. General Manager Chris Ballard has started rolling out the second phase of his “homegrown player” initiative. In this phase, he has handed out lucrative contract extensions to players like Kenny Moore, Rigoberto Sanchez, Luke Rhodes and Pierre Desir. There is reason to believe that Ballard may not be done massaging the salary cap he carefully built up and locking down key players that he and his coaching staff see as long-term contributors to the team’s future.In the meantime, the Colts invited members of the media to attend organized team activities and mandatory minicamp. Rookies had a chance to make a first impression, free agents also had a chance to make their presence felt and veteran injuries allowed depth players to receive a lot of first team reps. After all that we’ve learned following sprint activities, this is a way too early 2019 Colts roster prediction.* I used the initial 53-man cut-down from 2018 as a guide for how many players to keep at each position. <hr class="p-entry-hr" id="M9cDlf">(2) QB - Andrew Luck, Jacoby Brissett(4) RB - Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines, Spencer Ware, Jordan Wilkins(5) WR - T.Y. Hilton, Devin Funchess, Parris Cambell, Deon Cain Joe Haeg Jersey , Chester Rogers(3) TE - Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle, Mo Alie-Cox(10) OL - Anthony Castonzo, Quenton Nelson, Ryan Kelly, Mark Glowinski, Braden Smith, Joe Haeg, Le’Raven Clark, Evan Boehm, Josh Andrews, J’Marcus Webb(10) DL - Justin Houston, Denico Autry, Margus Hunt, Jabaal Sheard, Tyquan Lewis, Kemoko Turay, Jihad Ward, Al’Quadin Muhammad, Grover Stewart, Gerri Green(6) LB - Darius Leonard, Anthony Walker, Ben Banogu, Bobby Okereke, Matthew Adams, E.J. Speed(6) CB - Pierre Desir, Rock Ya-Sin, Kenny Moore, Quincy Wilson, Jalen Collins, Chris Milton(4) S - Malik Hooker, Matthias Farley, Khari Willis, George Odum(1) K - Adam Vinatieri(1) P - Rigoberto Sanchez(1) LS - Luke Rhodes* Bolded players are rookies.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="rKdMXs">There are a few surprises that come from this initial list. Clayton Geathers is not on the list. The reasons he was excluded are health related and due to the fact that Khari Willis and Matthias Farley should be able to play a similar role, Bobby Okereke also has the athletic characteristics that help to fill the hole left by Geathers, and the team has consistently spoken very highly about George Odum — who is entering only his second season. Ballard builds for the future and he could determine at final cuts that Geathers is in the team’s past.Daurice Fountain and Ross Travis are not on the list and could be considered surprised. I think a lot of fans would like to see Travis get a chance as the team’s fourth TE. If the team keeps four, that is where I would put him. Fountain has a lot of proving to do to earn his spot and training camp and preseason will be critical.J’Marcus Webb is currently listed but I suspect that after Antonio Garcia serves his suspension, he will take this spot.Zaire Franklin doesn’t make the team in this list but that speaks to the depth of the unit. Last year, Franklin served as a backup to Leonard and this year it is less likely that will happen. It will come down to special teams between Franklin, Skai Moore, and E.J. Speed.Marvell Tell and Nate Hairston did not make the final roster. Hairston in particular is a difficult player to cut given the promise he showed in his rookie season. Tell is odd man out based upon a crowded competition at the position. I could see Tell spending the year bouncing between the practice squad and active roster.I will say that if it were up to me, I’d shrink the offensive line and defensive line down. I’m not convinced they need that many bodies now that they’re settling into the second year in their new schemes. However, every year there are surprise cuts and this year won’t be any different.What changes would you make?
