Check Out the Greatest Plays from the Colts From the 2019 Season

While the season didn’t end with a title, the Colts did have some great moments in 2019 despite their franchise quarterback retiring before the start of the regular season.

Here’s a video from NFL.com highlighting the best plays of the season for the Colts.

Who Would the Colts Use the Franchise Tag on If Needed in 2020?

USA Today has released an interesting article regarding the ever unpopular (at least for players) ‘Franchise tag’ and how team’s may use it in 2020.

It seems like every team has an option to use the franchise tag, which stops a player from even negotiating with outside teams and forces them to stay put.

Here’s what the article has to say about the Colts, who they say may franchise left tackle Anthony Castonzo.

LT Anthony Castonzo would be a justified recipient, but he plans to re-sign with Indianapolis after mulling retirement.

Colts QB Jacoby Brissett Not Sure What the Future Will Bring in Indianapolis

Colts QB Jacoby Brissett doesn’t know his future when it comes to being a member of the club, as there’s been plenty of rumors that Indy is going to be in the market for a new quarterback for 2020.

Brissett took in a little XFL football on Saturday, and via Pro Football Talk he said he doesn’t know what his future will be.

“I’m just doing my job,” Brissett told Diana Russini of ESPN from the sideline of Saturday’s XFL game between the Seattle Dragons and Houston Roughnecks.

There’s no job to currently be done, because the NFL currently is in the midst of one of the only dark periods of the offseason. But, still, his Patriot Way point applies any day of the year. All he can control is what he can control, and he can’t control if the Colts look elsewhere at the position.

Brissett led the Colts to a 5-2 start. He suffered a knee injury against the Steelers, and when he returned he was never quite the same as he’d been prior to the injury.

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.
