Colts LT Anthony Castonzo Expected Back in 2020 Says Irsay

During a somewhat impromptu and wide-ranging news conference Sunday afternoon at the Colts practice facility, team owner Jim Irsay strongly hinted the Colts’ nine-year starter at left tackle, Anthony Castonzo, will not retire — a possibility Castonzo suggested at the end of the 2019 season — and will return to the Colts for his 10th season, the Indianapolis Star reports.

“I haven’t talked to Anthony personally, but he’s a Pro Bowl left tackle and we want him to come back,” Irsay said. “I think there’s a strong likelihood that he will, but I think Chris will have more on that in the coming weeks. I’m hopeful.”

Last month, Colts coach Frank Reich called Castonzo one of the best left tackles in football.

“I think he should be in there. I don’t even understand (how Castonzo has never made the Pro Bowl).”

Philip Rivers to the Colts? One Chargers Teammate Thinks It’ll Happen

Searching for potential landing spots for veteran Philip Rivers, few stand out as obvious choices to sign the 38-year-old quarterback.

More and more, however, Indianapolis leaps to the forefront as a destination NFL.com reports.

One of Rivers’ former teammates of the past five seasons, Melvin Gordon, believes Indy will be the choice, but made it clear during an interview last week on CBS Sports that he has no inside information.

“I think he goes to the Colts,” Gordon said. “I don’t know, that’s just my thought.”

Gordon, who is also set to become a free agent, used logical dot-connecting to come to his conclusion, noting that Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni previously worked as a Chargers assistant for five years. The relationship between Rivers and Sirianni would make a transition easier for a player who was with the same franchise the past 16 seasons.

“He has [connections],” Gordon said. “Nick… he came from here, we had him, and he’s the offensive coordinator there. They run the same playbook, so it’d be easy, he could come right in and he could be telling guys what to do, he knows what’s going on already.”

Could QB Brian Hoyer Be on the Chopping Block for the Colts This Offseason?

Numberfire.com has out a list of one player for each AFC team they think might be on the chopping block this offseason.

For the Colts the site has picked QB Brian Hoyer as the player that could find himself released. Here’s what they have to say about Hoyer getting cut.

Indianapolis Colts – QB Brian Hoyer

Dead Cap Hit $2M, Cap Saving $3M

It is possible that Jacoby Brissett might not be the long term answer at quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts. But his position atop the depth chart is far more certain than the player immediately beneath him. Brian Hoyer played a meaningful number of snaps in two games in 2019, games that saw him throw four touchdowns to four interceptions while completing just 53.8% of his passes.

Hoyer’s 2020 cap hit is far too large for a player the team would be hoping will take no part in the proceedings, and a younger, cheaper backup to Brissett can surely be found — at least until the team decides what to do next.
