To this point the Colts have only a single agreement being reported while other teams have been making the typical splash moves that come this time of season.The Colts have reportedly agreed to terms with WR Devin Funchess, but most of Colts nation was looking to see additions to the defensive side of the ball which looked to have the more impressive free agency group.The Colts were linked to pass rusher Preston Smith, and reportedly had widled his options down to Indianapolis and Green Bay. Smith chose to sign with the Packers, and now the Colts are reportedly not pursuing former Steelers’ running back Le’Veon Bell as well.Additionally, Landon Collins was thought to be one of the premier targets for the Colts to improve a safety room heading into the 2019 season. The Colts did tender Matthias Farley, but former Bears’ safety Adrian Amos is now off the market as well. Aside from being out on Bell, and signing Funchess — at least offensively — the Colts also weren’t able to land highly sought after slot receiver Adam Humphries. Trey Flowers was another big name that the Colts were expected to target, yet he has reportedly agreed to terms with the Detroit Lions. Whether or not the Colts were in either of them to begin with isn’t truly known, but anyway you slice it, they’ve missed out on several of the top-level free agents available.But, no matter how much Colts fans hope to see some major signing through free agency, we also must remind ourselves of Chris Ballard’s approach. He’s not going to panic. Bell has a litany of issues which certainly effects what Ballard would decide to do while continuing his roster building process. He, again, has likely been ‘IN’ on a handful of these high-dollar signings, but he appears to be very particular about what he’ll be willing to pay on a strict player-by-player basis. It is fair to be skeptic to a point given that the Colts have so much money available https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Margus-Hunt-Jersey , as overpaying is simply something that is necessary to do. However, free agency hasn’t even officially started yet, and there are plenty of interesting names still out there and available at all of the Colts’ areas of need going forward.Don’t freak out just yet.WR Tyrell Williams is still out there. DE Markus Golden is an interesting option, DT Rodney Gunter, CB Ronald Darby, CB Bryce Callahan, and even a guy like Tevin Coleman are all still interesting possibilities for the Colts. It could still be a very positive free agency period for the Colts yet. INDIANAPOLIS 鈥?After Andrew Luck quickly moved the Indianapolis Colts into position for one final, desperation heave Sunday at Philadelphia, he came out.With 5 seconds left and Indy at its 46-yard line, coach Frank Reich put in Jacoby Brissett.In some respects, the move made perfect sense. Brissett had the stronger arm, and given the slim chance of winning the game on such a play, it didn’t make sense to risk everything with someone returning from major shoulder surgery.Soon, the questions started popping up, too, and Luck attempted to put them to rest.“I know I’m at a level where I can make all the throws and I feel confident that I’m going out there with my full arsenal,” Luck said Wednesday. “I don’t think anything is holding me back. But again Peyton Manning Jersey , you can always get better, and I don’t think I’m anywhere near scratching the surface of realizing my full potential.”Clearly, this has not been the same Luck who started his career with three straight Pro Bowl appearances.His completion percentage (68.5) through three games would be a career best. His yardage and touchdowns are down slightly, while his interception rate continues to hover at about the same pace. He’s been more efficient on third downs and maybe slightly less efficient in the red zone.All of those traits showed up in Sunday’s loss at Super Bowl champion Philadelphia, where Luck went 25 of 40 and wound up with 164 yards 鈥?more than half of those yards coming on the final two series with Luck attempting to rally the Colts from a 20-16 deficit.Luck has thrown for fewer than 200 yards 15 times in 73 career starts, though it’s only the fifth time he’s failed to top 200 yards in consecutive games.Many wonder whether the changes are a result of Reich’s offensive philosophy, limitations on Luck, a series of injuries to Indy’s receiving corps and offensive line, a function of still getting acclimated to this new offense, or some combination thereof.“I feel free to call anything,” he said. “There’s no doubt there are times when you’re going on the road and you’re in a hostile environment, you might try to get it out early. But you can’t stay in that mode. You can’t play scared.”The Colts (1-2) insist they’re not playing it safe and point to downfield throws that have been made 鈥?just not always converted 鈥?including a 33-yard pass interference penalty on the Eagles that set up Indy’s only touchdown at Philly.Playing two of three road games hasn’t helped, nor has facing three solid pass-rushing teams with J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney and winless Houston on deck.Indy could again be missing left tackle Anthony Castonzo, who has yet to play because of an injured hamstring; Pro Bowl tight end Jack Doyle, who missed last week’s game with a hip injury and is one of Luck’s favorite targets; and likely right tackle Joe Haeg, who is expected to miss a couple of weeks after leaving last week’s game with an injured left ankle.Even Luck showed up on Wednesday’s injury report with a sore groin. But it didn’t keep him out of practice.None of it has changed Indy’s approach.“We definitely want more chunk (plays) and we want to be able to 鈥?we do take what the defense gives us Al Woods Color Rush Jersey ,” offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni said. “If they are taking away our initial read and we want to push the ball down the field, we want to play smart football.”Naturally, it was expected Luck would need some time to shake off the rust after missing 26 games over the previous three seasons. But if he and his receivers hooked up on a couple more plays, perhaps he wouldn’t have to answer any questions.“Honestly, I don’t know if there’s scrutiny or not,” he said. “But I think we, as an offensive unit, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to do well, and certainly in the last game we did not do well. The red zone sticks out in my mind more than anything.”NOTES: Running back Marlon Mack (hamstring) and defensive lineman Denico Autry (ankle) did limited work at Wednesday’s practice. … Defensive linemen Tarell Basham (personal reason) and Hassan Ridgeway (calf) did not practice. Also sitting out were Castonzo, Doyle and Haeg, tight end Eric Ebron (shoulder and knee), safeties Malik Hooker (hip and groin) and Clayton Geathers (knee), and cornerback Quincy Wilson (concussion).100View Gallery Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta
