In case you hadn't heard, the Indianapolis Colts lost their quarterback over the weekend when Andrew Luck announced his sudden retirement. Is Brock Osweiler a potential answer?

According to ESPN's Field Yates, Osweiler, the former Denver Broncos and Houston Texans quarterback, met with Indianapolis yesterday.

With Luck gone, his backup Jacoby Brissett now steps into the starting role, and all indications are that the team feels comfortable with him leading the way. Brissett was Indy's starter in 2017 when Luck missed the entire season with a shoulder injury.

However, that doesn't mean the Colts aren't looking to add another quarterback to the fold. That explains the interest in Osweiler, and potentially other QBs.

Osweiler spent last season with the Miami Dolphins. He appeared in seven games, starting five.

For the year, Osweiler connected on 63.5 percent of his passes for 1,247 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions.

Osweiler's most productive year was 2016, when he made 14 starts for the Texans and threw for 2,957 yards, 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

In 2015, Osweiler made seven starts for the Broncos and earned a Super Bowl ring while backing up Peyton Manning in the playoffs.
