2. Indianapolis Colts

But there is a chance that Brady hangs around longer than his two year contract. And the Bucs aren’t exactly likely to move on from Brady if he still wants to play (see current NFL jersey sales leaders for proof). If Brady holds on in Tampa, it means Fromm isn’t starting in year three, which should be ideal.

So what better positions can he be put in? One of them is Indianapolis. The Colts signed future Hall of Fame quarterback Philip Rivers to a one year contract this offseason to serve as a bridge between the current AFC South contending team and the future of the franchise. While Fromm could be ready to start as early as 2021; it feels more likely that targeting 2022 makes sense. Maybe that means they talk Rivers into another year or maybe it means they turn the reigns back over to Jacoby Brisset.

But, if any franchise is going to make Fromm a starter in year two, the Colts are an excellent candidate. They have a Super Bowl ready defense, a strong running attack, and an excellent offensive line. These attributes are music to a young starters ears, and Fromm could absolutely thrive there.

No viable evidence exists that Rivers can groom a young quarterback into a starter – but that cannot stop the Colts from trying. In fact, at least one writer argues they could take Fromm as high as 34. While I tend to believe the 75th overall selection may be a more likely/viable spot – its clear Fromm would be a great fit in Indy.
