Colts Looking to Boost Cornerback Corps?

With a mostly inexperienced group at cornerback, the Indianapolis Colts recently met with two veterans. What do these players bring to the table and which one should the Colts sign? Brad Keller breaks it down.

According to the Indianapolis Star, the Colts recently met with veteran cornerbacks Deshea Townsend and Frank Walker.

Townsend was drafted in the fourth round of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers and played for them the last 12 seasons before leaving as an unrestricted free agent.  For his career, he has appeared in 183 games with 80 starts, 21 interceptions, five forced fumbles, and 369 tackles.

Walker was drafted by the New York Giants in the sixth round in 2003, but has bounced around more than Townsend, also playing for the Packers and Ravens.  For his career, he has appeared in 82 games with 15 starts, seven interceptions, three forced fumbles, and 134 tackles.

Indianapolis has a lot of bodies at the position heading into camp, but they are perilously lean on experience after starters Jerraud Powers and Kelvin Hayden.  Powers is only a second-year player and the only other cornerback on the roster that has starting experience is Jacob Lacey, also a sophomore.  Adding a cornerback to give the team veteran depth makes sense, but the Colts also should not sign someone that is past their prime just to have a guy on the roster that has started some NFL games. 

So the question remains: do Townsend and Walker have anything left in the tank?

The bulk of Townsend's NFL experience has been as a spot starter and third cornerback in the nickel and dime packages.  He got the majority of his starts from 2004 to 2007, where he started 58 games in four seasons.  Prior to that, he only came on the field on third downs and in known passing situations.  After 2007, he occasionally started, but mostly saw time in sub packages.  He is a solid player, but not exactly a veteran leader, and he will turn 35 in September.

Townsend is an excellent tackler and can still get the job done on slot receivers, but he has played mostly man coverage throughout his career and doesn't have the recognition skills or closing speed to start for a long period of time in the Cover 2 defense. The coaching staff will be able to mask a hole in his game for a week or two, but they ultimately will not be able to shelter him if he needs to start several games.

As a veteran player to show the rookies and young veterans on the team the ropes and a dime cornerback, Townsend makes a lot of sense, but the Colts just cannot ask him to do too much if they sign him.  Townsend has a great deal of postseason experience and has two Super Bowl rings, so he will not be overwhelmed by stepping in for an injured player in a big game.

Walker is younger and has more experience in zone coverage — though he also has much more man coverage experience — and has played the role of spot starter for most of his career, so he knows what to expect and how to manage those expectations.  He was able to pitch in with the Ravens the past two seasons and started the Divisional round game against the Colts last season, so he has postseason experience as well.

Walker is not as effective as a third or fourth cornerback in a sub package, but he can certainly hold his own and has better recognition skills and closing speed than Townsend.

Ultimately, Indianapolis would like to get their young players as many reps as possible in camp and the preseason and would only sign a veteran for insurance purposes.  It's possible that they could sign Walker or Townsend, or both, but cut the veteran when making decisions for the 53-man roster if the younger players are able to make sufficient progress.  The Colts have always preferred to do things "in house" when it comes to the secondary, so that will be their approach heading into the 2010 season. 

Given that, signing both players makes a lot of sense, since there are no salary cap ramifications.  If Townsend shows that he still has something left and the rookies don't progress as well as hoped, he gives them veteran depth.  If Walker does his thing and manages his expectations, that give Indianapolis even more insurance should anything happen to Hayden, Lacey, or Powers — and history has shown that the injury bug has a habit of biting the Indianapolis secondary hard.

Walker is more likely to be retained than Townsend in that situation, since he knows his role and the Colts tend to go as young as possible at cornerback, but both players could grab a roster spot and hang on throughout the balance of the season depending on the circumstances.
