Despite the reports that the Indianapolis Colts might pursue safety Ed Reed in free agency, they may not be willing to offer him the kind of contract he’s looking for. We hear that connection makes a ton of sense, as the Colts sorely lacked a playmaker on the back end of the defense a season ago, and Reed and Pagano have a strong relationship. However, the scuttlebutt could be...
Jason La Canfora reports that the Colts “will make a run at several free-agent offensive linemen” during free agency and specifically mentions Ryan Clady, Brandon Albert, assuming that they’re not franchised, and Jermon Bushrod as potential targets.
La Canfora adds that the Colts cleared plenty of cap space last year, which should allow them to be aggressive in the coming...
