What will the Indianapolis Colts do next? After a disastrous 2022 season where they won just four games, the Colts definitely want to restore NFL relevance. Have they done a good enough job of rebuilding their roster so far in NFL free agency? What are the remaining open positions? Who are they still seeking as they prepare for the regular season in 2023? Here we'll look at the 4 best NFL free agents still available to round out the roster of the Colts.

Last season was a tough one for the Colts. Although they managed to defeat the eventual Super Bowl champions in the regular season, their overall record of 4-12-1 was disappointing. They faced several injuries and are currently struggling to find a reliable quarterback. Since Andrew Luck retired in 2019, the team has had a new starting quarterback each year. With the No. 4 draft pick in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft, the Colts are in a prime position to select a future playmaker, though. They also just signed Gardner Minshew. In addition to finding a new QB, the team also needs to address issues with their offensive line, which struggled significantly last season. Meanwhile, Alec Pierce is expected to improve, but they will need to acquire an established wide receiver to help bolster their offense.

The Colts are also in need of help on defense, across all levels. Keep in mind that Yannick Ngakoue has hit the free-agent market, and the team could benefit from additional interior defensive line help. Additionally, the team needs to address the loss of linebacker Bobby Okereke and safety Rodney McLeod, who are both free agents. Despite the challenges, the Colts remain optimistic about the future and are likely to focus on drafting a developmental quarterback in the first round of the draft.

Let's look at the best free agents still available to round out the roster of the Colts.

1. LB Bobby Wagner

The team has relied heavily on its strong defense over the past few seasons. As such, it's crucial that they don't regress. To maintain their defensive prowess, the team should consider contacting Bobby Wagner. Despite being 32 years old, Wagner remains one of the most talented players available. He has also proven to be highly productive. Wagner had an impressive season, earning All-Pro honors for the ninth year in a row (either first or second team). He also tallied 140 tackles, two interceptions, five passes defended, and even a career-high six sacks.

2. WR Keelan Cole

The Colts have a pressing need for a wide receiver, with Parris Campbell already signing with the Giants. Only Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce currently provide formidable options. One potential solution is Keelan Cole. He is a veteran receiver who has had a successful career as an undrafted free agent.

Although Cole primarily serves as a backup slot receiver and return specialist, he has proven himself to be a versatile player who can contribute in multiple ways. In the 2020 season, Cole had 55 receptions for 642 yards and five touchdowns. In 2021, despite a difficult season with the Las Vegas Raiders, he still managed to tally 449 yards and averaged an impressive 16 yards per reception. By adding Cole to their young receiving corps, the Colts could benefit from his veteran presence and improve their depth at the position.

3. CB Amani Oruwariye

The cornerback position has been a weak spot for the Colts. Stephon Gilmore was the only standout player in the room last season. In need of an upgrade, the team could potentially benefit from adding Amani Oruwariye to the roster.

Although Oruwariye struggled last season and was even benched in week nine against the Packers, he still has the potential to provide valuable depth for the cornerback room. Yes, he may not be a star cover corner. However, Oruwariye could surely benefit from a change of scenery and bounce back with improved production. As such, taking a chance on Oruwariye could prove to be a worthwhile move for the Colts.

4. OL Isaiah Wynn

To bolster their offensive line, the Colts could bring in three new players alongside Quenton Nelson and Ryan Kelly. One potential addition is Isaiah Wynn. He could help protect the quarterback and support Jonathan Taylor's resurgence.

Wynn played in nine games in 2022, starting seven. Those include six at right tackle and one on the left side in place of Trent Brown. Before his foot injury in Week 11, Wynn was on the field for 423 of a possible 633 offensive snaps. He gave up just four sacks. Take note that he signed a four-year rookie contract with the New England Patriots in 2019, worth a guaranteed $11.44 million. However, he missed a significant portion of it due to injury. Despite this, the Patriots added his fully-guaranteed fifth-year option at a cost of $10.41 million. That brought his total earnings to almost $21.9 million over his relatively young career. The Colts can ceratin try adding him on the cheap this year.
