View Full Version : Colts to use "some" new formations

ESPN NFL Rumor Central:

With Anthony Gonzalez returning to the mix next season, the Indianapolis Colts have a bit of a problem: There's too many useful receiving assets on the roster. Reggie Wayne is obviously slotted in at the top spot, but Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie both showed during the 2009 season that they can be relied upon to play a vital role, which sheds some doubt on how much playing time Gonzalez will get. Oh, we almost forgot, they have one of the most prolific TEs in the game in Dallas Clark, too.

In order to maximize the production of their assets, the Colts might come out with some four-WR sets next season, according to what coach Jim Caldwell told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Tuesday morning. Not sure how much of this formation "some" equals out to, but it's a scary thought given the guy that'll be distributing the ball around. ESPN AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky concurs:

"I automatically started thinking of secondary depth in the division and how it would stack up against that. Nobody in the league has the kind of corner and secondary depth needed to stand up to that personnel grouping with Peyton Manning at the controls."

We need some help in the secondary...

How about they just trade one of the WRs for a draft pick or two?
