The 2018 NFL free agent market of wide receivers was already pretty thin, yet top-heavy. If teams wanted a true difference-maker from the open market then they were essentially limited to Jacksonville’s Allen Robinson or Los Angeles’ Sammy Watkins. After that, the talent level takes a dip and you’re left with a lot of WR2’s and WR3’s.
The Indianapolis Colts only have two receivers under contract for 2018 who have had any sort of meaningful NFL playing experience: T.Y. Hilton and Chester Rogers. After that, you’ve got guys like K.J. Brent, Krishawn Hogan and DeAndre Smelter.
Naturally, you would think that the Colts would make a strong run at one of the top available pass-catchers. After all, they went after Alshon Jeffery pretty hard last offseason. The Colts did, reportedly, push for Watkins this week, but he chose to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs instead.
