Colts Free Agency Tracker

Here's the status of the Colts based on reports we've been receiving from our network of NFL publishers and experts, agents, and other NFL sources. Check out who's still available, who's gone, who's signed and who's been added with our Colts Free Agency Tracker...

Still available...
LG Ryan Lilja (RFA): Tendered at the second-round compensation level since he was undrafted and the Colts wouldn't have received any compensation otherwise. Lilja is highly talented with a great attitude to boot, but teams might not be as active in pursuing him as Scott since he started just five games this season largely due to knee problems that dated back to training camp. Likely to return: 90% chance
DE Josh Thomas (RFA): The backup DE is a good fit for the Colts. They tendered him at the second-round pick level, which should be good enough to keep him in Indy. Likely to return: 90% chance
RG Jake Scott (RFA): The former 5th-round pick was tendered at the second-round compensation level. It won't be tough for him to draw an offer higher than his $1.3 million one-year deal. And for a Super Bowl-caliber guard with a good health history, a team might surrender a second-rounder versus taking their chance on a high draft pick prospect. Likely to return: 70% chance
RB James Mungro (UFA): Coming back from a serious knee injury, Mungro isn't likely to draw much interest. He didn't last year as a UFA when he was healthy, so if the Colts want him back, a one-year minimum deal should do it. Likely to return: 70% chance
WR Aaron Moorehead (UFA):  The Colts' should be doing what they can to keep Moorehead as Marvin Harrsison, Reggie Wayne and John Standeford are their only receivers left currently signed from their 2007 53-man roster. Likely to return: 60% chance
KR/PR Terrence Wilkins (UFA): Boosted his stock with a really good season as a returns specialist. But with second-year player T.J. Rushing waiting in the wings, the Colts won't overpay to bring him back. Likely to return: 60% chance
DT Dan Klecko (UFA):  Carved out a niche role as a FB in goal-line situations and caught a pair of touchdown passes in the process. He did a capable job as a DT as well, but if he gets offered much more than the veteran minimum, don't expect to see him back. Likely to return: 60% chance
DT Montae Reagor (UFA):  Sidelined following Week 5 due to an auto accident that left him with serious head and facial injuries, Reagor was due a $1.05 million roster bonus and $2 million base salary for 2007 so the Colts had to release him. Indy appears to still be  interested if he gets medically cleared to play. Likely to return: 50% chance
WR Brandon Stokley (UFA): Colts are still interested in Stokley if the bidding doesn't get too high. He's reportedly visited the Saints and the Broncos so far, which is good activity considering his three injuries last year that resulted in him only catching 8 passes in 2007 in four game appearances and one start -- along with the fact that he may not be back at full speed until July. Likely to return: 40%
CB Jason David (RFA): Received a tender that would provide the Colts with only a 4th-round draft pick, which was a bit of a surprise since it's likely they will lose UFA Nick Harper. Likely to return: 40% chance
QB Jim Sorgi (RFA): Received a tender that would provide the Colts with a 6th-round draft pick if they decide not to match another team's bid for Sorgi. But the Colts signed free agent QB John Navarre on March 12th, so it'll be interesting to see if the team is considering letting Navarre and 2nd-year player Josh Betts battle for the No. 2 spot instead of paying Sorgi $850,000 this year. Likely to return: 40% chance
LB Cato June (UFA):  Oddly enough, he hasn't had a visit yet. Lots of rumors swirled that he'd be visiting the Giants, but it hasn't happened. Likely to return: 30% chance
DE Bo Schobel (RFA): He's the only RFA that the Colts didn't tender. He's unlikely to return for anything more than a one-year minimum. Likely to return: 30% chance
LB Gilbert Gardner (RFA): Signed to a low-round tender as an unrestricted free agent. The Colts get a third-round pick if he gets an offer they decide not to match. While some may be confused as to why Gardner was tendered since he was pulled from the starting lineup and eventually ended up repeatedly on the gameday inactive list, including during the Super Bowl, remember that tender are not guaranteed and can be pulled off the table. Likely to return: 30% chance
LB Rocky Boiman (UFA): Played well on special teams, but he may be bitter over not getting a decent chance to start after the Colts pulled Gardner out of the starting lineup. Likely to return: 30% chance
S Mike Doss (UFA): Doss visited Tampa Bay, and there is some indication that the Eagles may bring him in for a visit. Likely to return: 20%
WR Ricky Proehl (UFA): Will check his market value, but is expected to retire. Likely to return: 10% chance
CB Nick Harper (UFA):  Tennessee is pulling off a double-whammy free agent move as Harper has agreed to terms on a three-year deal to sign on with the Colts' AFC South rival. He'll now have to try to cover former teammate Marvin Harrison twice a year.
RB Dominic Rhodes (UFA):  Rhodes signed a two-year deal with the Raiders for a reported $7.5 million. Depending on the outcome of his arrest on alleged DUI charges, Rhodes could be suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the 2007 season.
LB Rob Morris (UFA):  Re-signed with Indy for a three-year term with base salaries of $900,000 this year, $1.135 million in 2008 and and $1.55 million in 2009.  Signing bonus details were not released.  
DE Dwight Freeney (UFA): Was offered a one-year contract tender of $8.644 million. Long-term deal appears likely, and that would allow the Colts to lower his cap hit by spreading his signing bonus in a new deal over the length of his contract.
Added to the mix...
QB John Navarre: The former Michigan QB worked for the Cardinals over the past three seasons, but didn't receive a contract tender as a restricted free agent. Whether he's been added to make RFA Jim Sorgi expendable or to simply give him a better challenge during training camp is yet to be seen. He signed a two-year deal with a 2007 base salary that is $340,000 less than Sorgi's one-year tender.
