Spotrac rated any actor sealed for during slightest $2 million, assigning immature (excellent), yellow (average) and red (below average) to each. The ratings are formed on income spent vs. production. The Colts had no one in a red range.

Six players sealed by a Colts were noted, and 5 rated. Three warranted immature ratings (defensive finish Denico Autry, ensure Matt Slauson, cornerback Pierre Desir) and dual warranted yellow (tight finish Eric Ebron, far-reaching receiver Ryan Grant).

It seems peculiar that Ebron got a yellow, given he has 7 touchdowns by 8 games. His contract, however, is a many costly per deteriorate among a Colts’ newcomers (two years, $13 million). Autry’s understanding is for 3 years and $17.8 million. Slauson, Desir, Grant and Howard sealed for one year each.

Here’ Spotrac’s analysis: “By distant one of a many successful giveaway representative classes in a league, a Colts took a few low-risk moves on bringing in Ebron and¬†Grant to supplement weapons for (Andrew) Luck, and both have been effective. Denico Autry has been one of a some-more prolific corner defenders in a game, and Matt Slauson has been another certain square to a finally softened descent line.”
