Indianapolis Colts' Top Free Agents That Need to Be Re-Signed

Bill Polian is not Dan Snyder. Thank God for that. Nothing personal against the Redskins' cranky boss, it's just the Redskins' strategy of going out and mortgaging the house on extremely overrated players hasn't exactly been a successful winning formula.

For comparison sake, since Snyder bought the Redskins in 1999, Washington is a rather unimpressive 86-106. The Colts on the other hand recorded the most wins in NFL history over a decade, going 138-54 over the same time span.

If the Colts don't waste money on mammoth deals on players such as Albert Haynesworth (seven-year $100 million contract) or DeAngelo Hall (six-year $54 million contract), how exactly have they been so successful?

Mostly by drafting wisely and retaining key free agents. This year however, both the draft and astute re-signing of free agents will be crucial to the Colts' continued success.

Bill Polian has whiffed on a few draft picks of late and more key players than usual are up for new contracts. How the Colts draft and who they choose to resign will go a long way towards determining whether or not the Colts' can squeeze other 5-6 playoff trips (and maybe even a Super Bowl or two) out of Peyton Manning's Hall of Fame career.

Here are the top players the Colts must target and re-sign during upcoming free agency.
