Are you not watching SNF? The fact that the Colts have $40 mil to start 2014 not scare you? The Colts do have 24 contracts to replace. I would rather have $40 mil to replace 24 contracts than $8 million to replace 15 contracts like the Texans. That's almost $2 mil per player vs $500k per player. Even after signing Flacco to a $100 mil contract the Ravens were still able to sign 3 Pro Bowl FAs in the off season and just recently have traded for a 1st RD OT.
