NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes the Cardinals' trade for CB Jamar Taylor takes them out of the running for free agent CB Bashaud Breeland.

Breeland visited Arizona on Thursday but the Cardinals have since filled their cornerback void by adding Taylor in a trade with Cleveland. Rapoport suspects Breeland will land with the Colts, who he visited earlier this week. However, the signing may have to wait until Breeland is fully healthy. The former Redskin is still working back from a foot injury he suffered while on vacation in the Dominican Republic two months ago.

Free agent CB Bashaud Breeland is visiting the Colts on Wednesday.

He'll visit the Cardinals on Thursday if he makes it out of Indy. Breeland inked a three-year, $24 million deal with the Panthers in March but needed a skin graft after cutting his foot on vacation, and the deal was voided after a failed physical. The Colts are in seriously dire need of corner help.

Free agent RB Terrance West visited the Colts on Tuesday.

West visited the Eagles last week, which was the first we had heard of him since the start of free agency. The Colts drafted a pair of running backs in Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins but still have one of the league's most unproven backfields.

Colts released CB Kenneth Acker.

Signing in April, it was a short stay for the former 49ers and Chiefs corner. He should latch on somewhere else. The Colts signed S Michael Cirino in a corresponding move.

Free agent S Kenny Vaccaro is meeting with the Colts on Monday.

Tre Boston is also meeting with the Colts on Monday. The safety market has easily been the quietest since free agency opened in March, so it makes sense for the Colts to go bargain shopping. Along with Vaccaro and Boston, Eric Reid remains available.

Free agent S Tre Boston is visiting the Colts on Monday.

Stuck in a safety market moving at a glacial pace, this is the first concrete interest Boston has generated this offseason. Boston was solid across 16 games for the Chargers last year, but they are ready to move on after drafting Derwin James in the first round.

Colts HC Frank Reich said RB Nyheim Hines' pass-catching skills are "very impressive".

Reich also said Hines' intelligence was evident. Colts have already confirmed Hines will play both running back and slot receiver to best utilize his 4.38 40-speed. He should be given an opportunity in camp to compete with Marlon Mack, Jordan Wilkins, and Robert Turbin for early-down carries. Despite being in a committee, Hines is likely to have value in PPR leagues immediately.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Andrew Luck still isn't throwing the football.

Reich said everything is going to plan and Luck is doing "exceptionally well." It's not a surprise he's coming along slowly — GM Chris Ballard said Luck wouldn't throw until training camp — but it remains startling that Luck hasn't thrown a live pass since Jan. 1, 2017, which was 496 days ago. He turns 29 in September.

Colts waived WR DeAndre Smelter.

The Colts cut him to make room for Kasen Williams. Smelter lasted just four months in Indy after signing a futures deal in January. He's logged just 54 NFL snaps since arriving as a fourth-round pick in 2015.

49ers signed G/C Mike Person, formerly of the Colts.

The 30-year-old (next month) started four of the Colts' final five games at center last season, receiving plus marks from Pro Football Focus for his pass protection. Person will try to earn an interior reserve spot this summer.
May 9 - 12:45 PM

Colts waived RB Matt Jones.

A third-round pick by the Redskins in 2015, Jones had five carries in five games with the Colts last year. He was no longer needed after Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins were added in the draft. The Colts also waived LB Jermaine Grace, WR Justice Liggins, NT Joey Mbu, DE Arthur Miley, and LB Darnell Sankey. DT Johnathan Calvin was waived-injured, meaning he will revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers.
May 1 - 10:56 AM

Colts head coach Frank Reich said he's "fine with running back by committee".

Reich agreed with the IndyStar's Stephen Holder that the team doesn't have a starting running back. The Colts drafted North Carolina State RB Nyheim Hines with the No. 104 pick in this year's draft and he'll likely compete with Marlon Mack from day one given Indy's lack of depth. Mack finished with 93 carries for 358 yards (3.8 YPC) and three touchdowns, adding 21 catches for 225 yards and a fourth score his rookie season and remains a high-upside candidate in fantasy if handling a majority of the team's backfield touches.

Jets acquired DE Henry Anderson from the Colts in exchange for the No. 235 pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Anderson's season was cut short last year following a laryngeal fracture he suffered in November. He recorded 22 tackles, with two sacks and one forced fumble prior to being placed on injured reserve. Going on 27, Anderson will be a tremendous help in the trenches for the Jets as he finished with PFF's No. 15 run-stopping grade out of 44 qualifiers at defensive tackle last season.
Apr 28 - 3:38 PM

Colts released RB George Winn with a failed physical designation.

Winn spent last season on injured reserve, and he apparently is still not ready to go. He will try to latch on somewhere as a camp body once he is healthy.
Apr 24 - 11:09 AM

Free agent DB Will Blackmon has worked out for the Seahawks, Browns, Colts, and Falcons.

Released by Washington at final cuts last September, Blackmon spent the 2017 season out of the league. The 33-year-old was effective in 2016, however. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo expects him to land a job after the draft.
Apr 23 - 11:26 AM

Colts have turned down multiple trade offers for QB Jacoby Brissett.

Colts GM Chris Ballard spoke highly of Brissett, mentioning "he’s committed, he’s a great teammate, he’s got juice" and "he holds people accountable." "I love Jacoby," he said. Brissett has two years left on his contract for a total of $1.6 million, which makes it easy for the Colts to keep him as Andrew Luck's backup. Ballard additionally mentioned he would have to be "bowled over" with an offer before parting ways with Brissett.
Apr 21 - 10:43 AM

Colts GM Chris Ballard said the team 'will be open' to moving back from the No. 6 pick in next week's draft.

"We will be open to moving back if we think it is the right thing for us to do and there's enough players on the board," Ballard said. Numerous general managers have stated they would be open to moving back this week, so this isn't foretelling of any potential deal. The Colts own picks No. 6, No. 37, and No. 49 due to their blockbuster deal with the New York Jets in March.
Apr 20 - 9:29 AM

Dwight Freeney announced his retirement from the NFL after 16 seasons.

He'll sign a one-day contract with the Colts so he can retire with the team that drafted him. Freeney will finish his career tied for 17th in league history with 125.5 sacks. Freeney, the No. 11 overall pick in 2002, spent his first 11 seasons with Indianapolis where he racked up 107.5 sacks. He also had stints with the Chargers, Cardinals, Falcons, Lions and Seahawks in the final years of his career, eventually finishing as a seven-time Pro Bowler.

T.Y. Hilton reported to the Colts' offseason program in "the best shape of his life."

Hilton reported to Indy's workout program thinner after he completely cut out fast food from his diet during the offseason. He worked closely with Indy's new director of sports performance, Rusty Jones, to alter his nutrition plan. Hilton wasn't drafted or extended by GM Chris Ballard, but it's telling how much the front office believes he'll bounce back in that he survived the regime's overhaul after the season. The speed demon desperately needs Andrew Luck to return healthy for 2018.
Apr 17 - 9:07 PM

Free agent DT Chris Jones worked out for the Colts.

He was on the Niners last year but spent the entire season on injured reserve. Jones compiled six sacks as a rookie in 2013 but has only recorded three since.
