Colts release Ricky Jean Francois in salary-cap move

  The Colts have released defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois in a cost-cutting move. Indianapolis had signed Jean Francois to a four-year, $22 million contract in 2013. But the team on Monday chose to take the salary-cap savings of nearly $5 million. That could give the Colts more room to reinforce its offensive and defensive lines in free agency. Jean Francois started 23 games...

Why would the Colts — or anyone — be interested in Frank Gore?

The Indianapolis Colts have committed some serious blunders in their continued pursuit of a good running back. This is a franchise that hasn’t had a 1,000-yard rusher since 2007 and two years ago traded a first-round pick for mega-bust Trent Richardson. Apparently, they haven’t learned that backs a) are worth a dime a dozen, and b) do NOT get better with age. That’s because...

The most recent trouble Richardson had to deal with is when he missed walk-through and was suspended...

The Indianapolis Colts are in major need of some defensive help this year, and there is one player in particular that would be a perfect fit for them.

Will the first-round running back return in 2015?

The state of the first-round running back is a commentary on more than just a position. It speaks to organizational philosophies and values. It shows the team-building priorities in a league increasingly driven by passing. And it reflects a hesitancy to invest heavily in a player whose football life is, at best, fleeting. Let’s call it the Trent Richardson-ing of the NFL, and...
