With free agency right around the corner the Colts might be looking to replace veteran Donald Brown who is set to hit the market.
Some team will over pay for Brown to become a number one back on their team, and the Colts cannot afford to pay him that.
With the likes of several big names set to look for a payday like Knowshon Moreno, Maurice Jones-Drew, and Darren McFadden, the Colts might want to look the other way.
A situational third down player will be key in next years season, as Vick Ballard and Trent Richardson will be back to take most of the responsibilities. So somebody like Ben Tate or Toby Gerhart would be a perfect fit in Indianapolis.
