The Colts won free agency and improved there Super Bowl odds by surrounding Andrew Luck with some veteran talent.
The Colts odds improved after Indy went crazy during the first three days of free agency, signing Gore, Trent Cole, Kendall Langford, Todd Herremans and Andre Johnson. Those five players will join a team that only came up one game short from playing in Super Bowl XLIX. Andre Johnson said he signed with the Colts because he felt like Indianapolis gave him the best chance to win a Super Bowl and at least one Nevada sportsbook agrees with him that Indy has the best chance.
Before free agency started, the Colts had 14-1 to 12-1 odds at most Vegas sportsbooks, now MGM has them at 5-1.
But checkout the top 3 QBs that have won in free agency with their GM moves.
Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts
Welcome to The Year Of Luck. The Colts quarterback is a once-in-a-generation talent who should be just entering his prime at 25 years old. The Colts are well set up, in other words, and they did a nice job supplying their star passer with two veterans who can take the offense to the next level. Frank Gore will give Luck something he’s never had — a durable and productive backfield option who knows how to pass protect. Andre Johnson — who seems destined for the Steve Smith Revenge Year® — will line up across from T.Y. Hilton in Reggie Wayne’s old role. There will be points.
Wilson had to be skipping through the streets when he learned that the Seahawks had traded for Jimmy Graham. It’s a huge move by general manager John Schneider, who gives his talented young quarterback perhaps the best red-zone target in football. Wilson has developed a well-earned reputation as a winner in his first three seasons; don’t be surprised if Graham’s arrival has the effect of turning Wilson into a statistical beast. (Think Tom Brady before and after the arrival of Randy Moss in 2007).
Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins
Tannehill’s not a kid anymore and expectations are high in Miami after the big-ticket arrival of Ndamukong Suh. The front office deserves credit for hitting the reset button on a wide receiver group that wasn’t progressing with the quarterback. Gone are Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson. The arrivals are both intriguing: Kenny Stills, acquired in a trade with the Saints, has Wallace-like home run potential and the ability to grow into a complete receiver. He turns 23 next month. Tight end Jordan Cameron, who signed to a two-year deal, has very real injury concerns but possesses major upside as a pass-catching tight end.
