PFW: Colts to Look to the Draft for a Backup QB?

Pro Football Weekly reports that the Colts may look to the draft in two weeks to fill the backup QB spot:

There are rumblings coming out of Indianapolis that this finally could be the year in which the Colts draft a quarterback in one of the earlier rounds. For years, the Colts have shied away from picking up insurance for Peyton Manning, noting the future Hall of Famer’s astounding ability to stay healthy as evidence that they don’t need to waste a pick on a No. 2 passer but the way we hear it, Manning’s age and the scare he put into the team a year ago with his preseason knee injury has them pondering Manning’s mortality more than they have in years prior. They also have seen what happened to the Patriots last year, and how New England remained a playoff-caliber team largely because it had legitimate talent waiting in the wings, in Matt Cassel and word is they could be tempted into taking a passer in Round Two or Three in April.
