The Colts released QB Chad Kelly on Wednesday and we have zero idea why it took this long.

There’s a ton of ambiguity surrounding the Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback situation beyond the current season, as the likes of Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett, the two top guys on the depth chart, are both slated to become free agents.

With no real long term answers available this past offseason, the former was mostly signed as a bridge option who might be able to lead the Colts to a deep playoff run.
