The Indianapolis Colts were ahead of schedule. They showed up in the playoffs last season and even won a game when they supposed to be in deep reconstruction.
The Colts were one of the most surprising teams in the AFC South during the 2018 season, earning a wildcard spot after posting a 10-6 record.
Plans Fall Apart With Unexpected Retirement
Indy ended up winning ten games despite starting the season with a not so encouraging 1-5 mark.
A year later, all the big plans fell apart when QB Andrew Luck decided to retire a week before the start of the 2019 season.
The Colts are now last to win the AFC South at +500. Before the announcement Indy was listed +120.
Houston is now the favorite at +110, followed by Jacksonville +250 and Tennessee +350.

Without Andrew Luck, the Colts are not a playoffs team.
Indianapolis won’t become one of the worst teams in 2019, but they don’t have a shot at winning the AFC South now.
Indianapolis Colts 2019 Roster Changes
The Colts had a lot of cap space to use during the offseason and decided to spend it wisely.
The front office added veteran DE Justin Houston, who spent most of his years with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Signed Chiefs’ Weapon
They also signed another Chiefs’ weapon in RB Spencer Ware, who is known as a reliable second-back.
Perhaps the most head-scratching move was adding ex Panthers WR Devin Funchess for one year in exchange for $13 Million.
With Andrew Luck now as an afterthought, Jacoby Brissett will command the offense.
Brissett got his chance two years ago when Luck was injured, but now things have changed. He has been in Frank Reich’s system for over a year and knows his teammates well enough to be better than in 2017.
Indianapolis Colts 2019 NFL Draft
Over the past few years, the Colts have built around the NFL draft, and they aimed for good results once again in 2019.
The team traded their first round to the Washington Redskins, and that allowed them to have three second-round picks.
Used Draft To Strengthen Defence
They used them to select two defensive players, including CB Rock Ya-Sin from Temple. He’s expected to have an immediate contribution in the secondary.
Overall, they selected seven defensive players and three from the offensive side.
Watch out for WR Parris Campbell who is a speedster outside the numbers.
