Caldwell indicates maybe more FA signings

Near the Bottom of the allstate add in the article is this note

This article talks of The Sims signing too so its after that he made the noted statement

The question now is what more might the Colts do?

When asked Tuesday morning if Indy was looking at any more free agents, Caldwell smiled and said: “There’s a couple.”

That’s a drastic change for a team that prefers keeping the players it develops rather than signing someone else’s.

It is also in an indication of how much wiggle room under the $120.3 million salary cap the Colts created by re-signing Manning to a five-year, $90 million, cap-friendly deal. A week ago, team owner Jim Irsay acknowledged the Colts would likely have to release some players. Indy had budgeted $23.1 million to keep the four-time league MVP under the franchise tag, but the new deal reduced his cap number to $16 million.

Asante Samuel is a long shot at best unless he decides he wants to play for a championship instead of money. It would be awesome though. I would like to see some depth added at DT or the secondary though just to provide some insurance in case of injury. I am excited about the Jamaal Anderson signing though. At the very least I think he's an upgrade over Dawson. Not to take anything away from Dawson but he was simply too small to be playing in the middle at only ~250 lbs.

Jamal Anderson is a good pick up for the colts dline...it not only bulks up our line but adds depth to both DT and DE wich could help us deep in the season also i wouldnt be surprised if he is our 3rd down DT so we can send Freeny/Mathis for the kill....Now trying to get Asante Samuel is going to be hard but i can see it being down it would add great talent to our secondary and depth to out roster but the only way i see us signning him is if he wants to play for a contender and would take less money maybe a one year deal for about 3.5m if we have that cap space but overall he would be a excellent choice for us to try and go afer.

Samuel isn't a free-agent and I don't see the Eagles releasing him. If he's traded he will count whatever his base salary is against the cap. Carlos Rogers would be a good pick up if they go the free-agent route.

IMO i think c.rogers would be a better fit for out D

I couldnt agree more he opposite Powers with Whitner and Bethea behind them thats the best coverage the Colrs have had in a while also id love to see them bring in Madison Hedgecock I think it would be great to see the Colts use a FB to help boost the running game, by adding Hedhecock you give Addai a rest and give a blocking RB for Manning when D Brown is in

I would like to see more CB depth now that Hayden is gone, but we don't need to spend big money on a starter. I also would have liked for us to go after a run-stuffing safety, but with the signing of Bullitt, that probably won't happen. Some LB depth would be nice too Nevermind, we have Ernie Sims

    • You can’t help those who are determined to complain no matter what.  
    • I mean calling things what they factually are that’s a real spin job by you lol.
    • I think the confusing part for me is the utilization. This is it for Campbell. This is his final season to prove he belongs in the NFL and right now the colts are not doing him any favors if their not even attempting to get him into space and let him work. 
    • I’m not sure you and I are watching the same defense.   Through 3 games the Colts have played 12 quarters and one full 10 minutes overtime.     IMO, the Colts defense has looked good for 5 quarters and the OT.    I’d say the 4th Q of the Houston game plus the KC game. But the defense was unimpressive for 3 quarters of the Houston game and all 4 quarters of the JVille game.   So that’s 7 bad quarters versus 5 plus good quarters.   That’s hardly coming attractions for a #1 defense.    Compounding your argument our pass rush is a long way from being a top 10 rush to be feared or respected.   They will likely get better this year but enough to help make this the number one overall defense?   Right now this feels like you’re watching our games through Blue tinted glasses.     Hey, I’d be thrilled if you’re right, but for right now,  sorry, I just don’t see what you see. 
    • There were a bottom 2ish to start the season...  They lost to Wentz... and a bad WA team. They beat a bad team, Indy, who let their QB set a new career high again (now twice). Totally out coached.  They beat a highly ranked team, with a QB broken ribs lol... who only goes as a far as QB takes them.
