The Indianapolis Colts have plenty of key players that are set to hit the free agent market, so they will begin focusing on their offseason strategy after being eliminated from the NFL postseason by the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
One of the players who is set to hit the open market is running back Donald Brown.
The Colts already have Vick Ballard and Trent Richardson, who they gave up a first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft for earlier this year, currently on the roster, but they are still expected to make a play to bring Brown back to Indy.
According to the Indianapolis Star, the Colts are expected to make Brown a “reasonable offer.”
“Hopefully I’ll be putting the clothes back,” Brown said as he cleaned out his locker at the end of the season. “That’s my plan. That’s my hope.
“We’ll see how the next month or so sorts itself out.”
On top of Brown, the Colts will have to determine what to do with cornerback Vontae Davis, safety Antoine Bethea, placekicker Adam Vinatieri, punter Pat McAfee, guard Mike McGlynn and defensive linemen Fili Moala and Aubrayo Franklin, who are also set to become free agents.
