    I was curious as to what the Colts free agent and salary cap situation is. I know Reggie Wayne and Edge is a free agent. Will the Colts be able to keep all these high priced guys? How are the 2006 Colts looking?

    Personnally, I would ask this question on a Colts message board.

    I don't think they are projected to be way over the cap but they do have issues becasue they have a lot of key free agents. Here is the list (* are starters):

    Aaron Moorehead WR RFA
    Brad Pyatt WR RFA
    *Cato June LB RFA
    *David Thornton LB UFA
    *Edgerrin James RB UFA
    *Gary Brackett LB RFA
    Gerome Sapp S RFA
    James Mungro FB UFA
    Joseph Jefferson S UFA
    Keith O'Neil LB RFA
    Larry Tripplett DT UFA
    Makoa Freitas OT RFA
    Mike Vanderjagt PK UFA
    *Raheem Brock DE UFA
    *Reggie Wayne WR UFA
    Rob Morris LB UFA
    Robert Mathis DE RFA
    Rocky Calmus LB UFA
    Troy Walters WR UFA
    So there entire LB core, Wayne, James and Brock. This is a team that has let LB Mike Peterson and LB Marcus Washington go in the past to keep the offense intact. They will let James go as they ran him into the ground this year. They will keep Wayne and try and replace 1-3 LBs.
    They might be in big trouble.

    The Edge would look pretty sweet with a flying Elvis on his helmet.

    Reggie Wayne would be a big loss for them too. I'd love to see
    an NFC team like the Eagles go in and snatch Wayne. Not sure
    what's going to happen to Edge and S.Alexander. Veteran backs
    usually aren't a big target on the free-agency market. Cards could
    really use a back like one of those two. Jets could use one too.

    Even though he's not a starter, Robert Mathis will probably demand alot of money since he had something like 11.5 sacks. I assume they'll franchise either edge or wayne.

    But he's a RFA, so they simply have to offer him the high tender (1.4M last year). If they don't think anyone would give up a 1st, they can offer the mid-level tender which is lower, but they would probably lose Mathis with that.
