Outside of signing young, unclaimed players to future contracts, the first part of the Colts' offseason plan is the decisions to make regarding their own free agents.
While the Colts fortunately do not have a multitude of big-name contributors to re-sign, there are several key contracts that must be negotiated. With 18 players becoming free agents (four restricted free agents, 14 unrestricted), the Colts have some important decisions to make, even if they are mostly for rotational and depth players.
Fortunately for the Colts, they have an estimated $46 million in cap room to play with, which gives them some much-needed room to work in free agency.
That may make some of these players expendable, as the Colts look to upgrade in free agency or the draft, but it may also save some, as the Colts will have the spare change to re-sign them with.
As always, you can find me discussing these thoughts, and more, on Twitter as well.
