LT - cheap

LG - big money coming

C - big money paid

RG - cheap

RT - big money paid

 

Paying three guys out of your five starting linemen big money is a heavy investment, making it 4/5 is a LOT to ask. You gotta fill the other two places with role players or rookies.

Going cheap at LT is very risky when you have an immobile 37 year old QB. Protecting his blindside is the most important position on the OL. Just because Pryor played well for a few games does not mean he can handle it for a whole season.

True but 3 guys are paid up, something has to give. Ideally, the LT is usually among those players and indeed was before Castonzo retired. It's just a heckuva lot of money for o-line without dynamic explosive talent at the creative offensive positions save RB.

The Colts have done well this offseason with their signings.

 

They started out pre-Ryan trade with the most cap space in the league.  Now - they're going to have to restructure deals to provide more cap space for additional needs.

 

There was NO WAY the Colts were going to be able to put the the kind of contract together for Armstead that the Dolphins did.  The Dolphins are on an all-out $$ and draft pick assault on free agency.  It will be interesting to see if all that investment pays off.
