Indianapolis Colts default on free agency; their lone trade is a qualifier instead.
The Indianapolis Colts have only brought in one true free agent, and that was CB Brandon Facyson. So there’s not much to work with here, so this award goes to the Colts trading for Yannick Ngakoue. Ngakoue made waves during his time with the Jaguars years ago, but he has bounced around the league since that point.
Ngakoue has officially tied Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks for the most-traded player in the league, and both Cooks and Ngakoue need one more trade to tie Eric Dickerson for the most-traded player of all-time.
Ngakoue had ten sacks last year, which is respectable, but that’s the first time he’s hit that mark since his Pro Bowl season of 2017. Maybe it’s a scheme thing, but I just can’t see Ngakoue making a big impact on the Colts’ defense.
You do you, Colts. Just down, let weak teams wear you down at the end of the season when it counts.
