While the Indianapolis Colts season ended in disappointment with a 31-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional round of the playoffs, the future looks bright in Indy. Here are five moves the organization should make this offseason as they look to hit that next level in 2019.
Under new head coach Frank Reich, the Indianapolis Colts finished the 2018-19 season with a 10-6 record and were one of the top five offenses in the NFL and one of the top 10 defenses in the league despite holes on both sides of the ball. The Colts could use difference-makers on defense and more explosive wide receivers, and a combination of smart drafting and aggressive free agency moves will help.
Indianapolis is in an awesome spot heading into the offseason, because not only were they a playoff team, but they also have a copious amount of cap space with no key players set to leave in free agency. That leaves them open to make some big additions to their team as they make a potential Super Bowl push, and while bad contracts are never in style, the Colts front office will have plenty of leeway when it comes to throwing money at big names.
Here are five moves the Colts should consider making this offseason to help avoid a letdown season in Reich’s second year at the helm, especially with a more difficult schedule looming after their second-placed finish in the AFC South.
