This isn't a problematic spot for the Colts, but there's some serious talent available in free agency next season, and another piece could make this offense the best in the NFL. The receiving corps has done a tremendous job this season for being so young. Reggie Wayne is the only guy on the unit with 3+ years experience. The team is leaning on two rookie speedsters in T.Y. Hilton and LaVon Brazill and two rookie tight ends in Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener.
Many of you may be asking, why add another veteran to this young talented group? The issue is Donnie Avery has been a huge surprise this year and has been a good go-to guy when Luck has been in trouble. Avery, though, is a free agent, and someone could pick him up. But, there's plenty out there for upgrades.
Mike Wallace, Greg Jennings and Wes Welker are all free agents. With Collie likely done with Indianapolis and Avery probably landing elsewhere, why not bring in one of these three? It would be an upgrade for sure. I believe Wallace could be the most likely out of the three.
Wallace played for this same system in Pittsburgh and thrived in it. He's a young, small, speedy guy who fits what Indianapolis is doing right now. He's not happy in Pittsburgh and would open up to leaving next year. Can you imagine that offensive line I mentioned in the previous slide with Andrew Luck, Wayne, one of these receivers, and Allen and Fleener in tight end sets. That would open up Hilton and Brazill to still grow more and take on the slot role.
There's not one defense that could stop this speedy and dominant lineup if the Colts do plan to go forward with a similar plan.
