RB Frank Gore SIGNED by Indianapolis
It’s amazing how many running backs the Colts have used to start games over the past two seasons. While that team is all about Andrew Luck and their #1 ranked passing offense, there needs to be a steady presence in the backfield. The soon to be 32 year old has some tread left on the tires and has been the model of consistency over his career. He’s averaged between 4.1-4.7 yards per carry every season since 2010 while not missing a game since 2011. The Colts have had some tough luck with injuries in their backfield and it’s thrown them off as an offense. Gore should change that for at least a year or two.
The Colts need to put a lot of their draft attention towards defense. They can’t make the same mistake they did during the Peyton Manning era by ignoring that side of the ball. While running back wad a need, it is smart to fill the hole with a relatively cheap, established veteran. Young running backs have a hard time finding the consistency in this league and it could have set this team back in a few ways to spend a premium selection on one.
