The Indianapolis Colts finished the 2018 season having optimism for the future. But when Andrew Luck suddenly retired, the Colts were thrown into a spiral of uncertainty.
While Luck began his life after football, the Colts were forced to turn to Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. The former third-round pick of the New England Patriots would get off to a fast start to the 2019 season.
In his first seven starts, Brissett threw for 1,590 yards, 14 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Above all, Indianapolis held an impressive 5-2 record.
However, Brissett would suffer a knee injury in Week 9 and he wouldn’t be the same for the rest of the season. When the season concluded, the Colts made it known that there could be a quarterback change in 2020.
Aside from the quarterback position, Indianapolis has some pivotal decisions to make in the offseason. Before the NFL draft begins, free agency will dominate headlines.
The Colts will enter the free-agency period with $90.3 million of cap space, according to Spotrac. That is more than enough to build a contending roster in the NFL.
With less than two months until free agency, Indianapolis has some time to decipher what positions are needed most. In light of that, here are two players that the Colts must sign in free agency.
