2 players the Indianapolis Colts must sign in free agency

Robert Quinn

Ahead of the 2019 season, the Dallas Cowboys were extremely buoyant that they would win the NFC East. One of the main reasons why was because of the addition of Robert Quinn.

The Cowboys were able to acquire Quinn via trade from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a sixth-round pick. After one season in Dallas, it was apparent that the Cowboys got an absolute bargain for Quinn.

The veteran defensive end finished the 2019 season with 11.5 sacks, 13 tackles for loss, 22 quarterback hits, and two forced fumbles. The 11.5 sacks were the most in his career since 2013.

For the Colts, one of their biggest needs is finding a defensive end to pair with Justin Houston. Jabaal Sheard is an unrestricted free agent for Indianapolis and it’s unclear if they intend to retain him.

In 2019, the Colts combined for 41 sacks as a defense (16th in the NFL). With a boatload of money to spend and a need for pass rushers, Quinn makes a ton of sense for the Colts.
