The unexpected retirement of Andrew Luck has left a massive hole on the depth chart for the Indianapolis Colts. Jacoby Brissett has shown he can be a starting quarterback, but now, the team needs to find a backup option.
Chad Kelly showed flashes of potential during the preseason, but he's suspended the first two games of the 2019 season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
With Kelly out for the first two games and Indianapolis in desperate need of more depth, it appears the front office is looking at a few veteran quarterbacks.
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Colts worked out Matt Cassel, Brandon Weeden and Brock Osweiler.
Indianapolis hasn't made a decision yet as to which quarterback it'll sign.
Teams needs to finalize their rosters by this Saturday, Aug. 31. Expect the Colts to sign a quarterback by this weekend.
All three options that have visited with the Colts have experience in the AFC South. Cassel played for the Tennessee Titans, meanwhile Weeden and Osweiler spent time with the Houston Texans.
If the regular season were to start today, the Colts would have Brissett starting and Phillip Walker taking on the backup role.
