The Colts have been loaded with cap space lately, but they haven’t spent huge just because they can. So as it sits right now, they have the third-most cap space in the league ($65.46 million projected, via Over the Cap). A move for a quarterback, if Philip Rivers is not back and with backup Jacoby Brissett a free agent, might be the centerpiece move of Indianapolis’ offseason.
Turning toward the wide receiver position, T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal are set to hit free agency this in March. Michael Pittman Jr. is a keeper, and Parris Campbell (knee) will hopefully be good to go by Week 1. But it’s safe to say the Colts will be looking hard at wide receivers this offseason, via free agency, trades and the draft.
If the Colts want to make a legit push for a Super Bowl bid next year, and why wouldn’t they?, bold moves will be necessary. Jones is still one of the best wide receivers in the league–the Colts can afford him easily, and address one of their top offseason needs. And as much as he may be given some say, joining a winning team will definitely appeal to Jones.
