Projecting the Colts' depth chart after Matt Ryan trade and early free agency

The Colts might not be finished in free agency, but they're certainly taking an extended pause. They've made two trades at two premium positions so far but have not made a signing on an outside free agent in more than a week.

That's largely how general manager Chris Ballard approaches free agency, preferring in-house returns over new additions. And in the process of bringing players back, some take on new roles, too.

Here's a look at what the Colts' depth chart would look like if the season had to start today:


Key backups: Sam Ehlinger

Need: Minimal

Analysis: The Colts took their biggest swing at the most important position by flipping Carson Wentz for Matt Ryan, in addition to a Day 2 pick in 2023.
