Indianapolis Colts: Bring Back “Boom”

With Zurlon Tipton and Trent Richardson as the only healthy running backs under contract for 2015, running back will be one of the positions the Indianapolis Colts will need to address this offseason.Fortunately, a viable option may not be far away, with Dan “Boom” Herron impressing in limited playing time in 2014.He’s not the sexiest or most talented option, but for a team that just needs a cheap and efficient option at the position, Herron probably checks both boxes.Herron, who is set to be become a restricted free agent, appeared in 14 games for the Colts and started three, rushing for 351 yards on 78 carries (4.5 YPC) and also caught 21 pass for 173 yards.While 78 carries is nowhere near a large enough sample to judge a running back, and fumble problems cut into his overall value, he was a consistent runner, as evidenced by an impressive success rate.Success rate is the percentage of plays that get a team closer to scoring (or more precisely, yield positive expected points; see …

Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson revealed on Friday that Trent Richardson was suspended for his team’s two playoff games, according to ESPN’s Mike Wells.

Colts FA’s: Should They Stay, or Should They Go?

For NFL teams, deciding which impending free agents to attempt to re-sign and which to let walk is never easy. With that being said, the Indianapolis Colts enter the offseason in an awkward position. They are one of the best teams in the NFL, but they have some major moves to make in order to get to the next level, and that includes parting ways with some players that helped them get to where they are now.The Colts currently have an estimated $37,358,059 in cap room for 2015 according to Over The Cap, but they have major contracts coming up, as well. Right now, they are working on what is being dubbed as a mega contract for quarterback Andrew Luck, likely making him the highest paid player in the league, if not of all-time.This upcoming offseason, the Colts have 27 of these free agent decisions to make, and like it or not, they will not be able to bring all of them back.QB Matt Hasselbeck (+)Although 16-year pro Matt Hasselbeck will be 40 years old during the 2015 season, he is easi…

Colts trying to keep Rob Chudzinski in Indy

When the Browns fired Rob Chudzinski after just one year, he found a place to land in Indianapolis. Chud was hired by the Colts in early February after being fired by the Browns right at the end of December. Colts coach Chuck Pagano had glowing things to say about Chud at the time.
“Rob and I have a long professional relationship and his résumé speaks for itself,” Pagano said in a Colts release. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and will be a tremendous help to our entire team moving forward. Needless to say, we’re excited to have ‘Chud’ joining our family.”
Apparently Pagano and the Colts still feel the same as they’ve reportedly blocked Rob Chudzinski from interviewing around the league for various positions.

The #Colts are blocking offensive assistant Rob Chudzinski from all of his interview requests. They want to keep him, he helps immensely

Their ability to block will run out soon, though.

Cris Carter on Andrew Luck Pro Bowl Pick: “We’re Going to Take a Little Air out of the Football”

After getting shut out of advancing to the Super Bowl, Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback Andrew Luck was the No. 1 draft pick for the upcoming Pro Bowl.
While the sting of losing so badly to the New England Patriots must still weigh on Luck, former NFL receiver Cris Carter didn’t let that stop him from poking a little fun at the quarterback he selected first overall in the Pro Bowl draft (via NFL.com).
We’re going take a little air out the football for him, though.
Luck, who took it all in stride, told NFL Media’s Chris Rose that being selected first overall was “neat.”
Coincidentally, Luck has a pattern of being selected first overall in drafts. He was chosen first in the 2013 Pro Bowl fantasy football style draft and he was the first overall draft pick in the NFL’s 2012 draft.
As you can tell from Colts’ defensive end Robert Mathis’ tweet, this didn’t go unnoticed.

look at this #ANDREWLUCK guy, all he knows is being #PICKED1st in every draft he has been apart of lol

Indianapolis Colts: Still more work to be done

After a 45-7 beat down the Indianapolis Colts suffered in the AFC Championship at the hands of the New England Patriots, the outcome showed that the franchise still has a ton of improvements that need to be made.
The Colts go as far as quarterback Andrew Luck can take them, we all know that. Each year, the former University of Stanford quarterback has gotten better and better since being drafted in 2012.
His rookie year, he was able to lead the Colts to the Wild Card game, where they eventually lost to the Baltimore Ravens.
Last year, he was able to carry the Colts to the divisional round after a dramatic 28-point comeback against the Kansas City Chiefs. And who did they lose to in the divisional round? The Patriots.
This season, Luck had his best season yet as he and the Colts fought their way to the championship game to eventually lose to who? Yes, you guessed it.
The Colts have some dire areas that need to be addressed this offseason in order to get over the hump, beat the Patriots, and get to the Super Bo

The NFL’s investigation into claims that the Patriots may have been using deflated balls during the AFC Championship Game began following the Colts’ lone interception of Tom Brady, according to a report.

WATCH: Andrew Luck drops another F-bomb on air

Right before the Indianapolis Colts put their first score on the board, audio footage of quarterback Andrew Luck loudly using the “F” word slipped through and could be heard on TV.
We have decided to mute the audio. Go ahead and click on the Vine if you want to hear Luck’s bad word.

Quickly after the “F” bomb was dropped, CBS muted the audio, but not before it was too late to capture Luck’s classy comments on video. I guess Luck wanted to beat New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady to the punch on this one today.

Report: Colts working on ‘blockbuster’ extension for Luck

It wasn’t too long ago that reports surfaced that Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russel Wilson was set to become the highest-paid quarterback in the National Football League this upcoming offseason.
Not to be outdone, sources close to ESPN’s Adam Schefter are indicating that the Indianapolis Colts are preparing a “blockbuster” extension for quarterback Andrew Luck that could potentially reach $25 million per season.
Both Luck and Wilson are not eligible for extensions until the start of the new league year in March. Under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, players under their rookie deals cannot sign veteran contracts until following their third season.
The debate promises to heat up regarding these two young quarterbacks following the playoffs. Both have led their teams to conference championship weekend, while Wilson has already hoisted the Lombardi.
However, one thing is readily apparent. Neither seem to be willing to take the same contract structure that Colin Kaepernick and Andy Dalto
