The Indianapolis Colts had a nice season last year, but came into the offseason with quite a bit of room for improvement. For the most part the Colts have had a solid free agency, but they haven't plugged all the holes in the roster quite yet. Here are the Colts 5 biggest mistakes of the offseason so far.
Donald Brown ditched the bust label last season after a solid season with the Colts last year. Indy, however, decided to part ways with the former first-round pick, letting him move to San Diego as they pushed to re-sign Ahmad Bradshaw. They may end up regretting that decision.
Hasselbeck, by all accounts, has been an excellent pro and human being during his short time with the Colts, but million is an awful lot of money to pay a backup quarterback. The Colts would have been better off finding a cheaper option to backup Andrew Luck.
Robert Mathis was fantastic last year, but the Colts would be better off having another pass rushing OLB to pair with Mathis. Right now, the Colts are banking on rookie Bjoern Verner to step into that role, which is a little risky to say the least
The Colts made a very difficult decision in letting safety Antoine Bethea go to San Francisco. This move in itself wasn't necessarily bad -- Bethea's play had slipped considerably in the past few years. The problem is: the Colts never signed anyone to fill his role. This, unfortunately, leaves backup Delano Howell or a draft pick taking Bethea's spot next year.
When Ryan Grigson took the Colts GM job two years ago, one of his promises was to build an offensive line to protect their franchise quarterback. That promise has yet to come to fruition. Grigson cut Samson Satele and let Mike McGlynn leave (two of the worst lineman in the game), but the Colts offensive line still leaves a lot to be desired besides tackles Anthony Costanzo and Gosder Cherilus.
