While the Indianapolis Colts will have more than $30 million to spend, a bunch of big name free agents this offseason are not likely. New contracts for WR T.Y. Hilton and QB Andrew Luck are on the horizon, so much of that cap space will be saved for re-signing current players or cheaper free agents.
Huddle Up: Indy is close but needs a few additions to seriously challenge for a Super Bowl title. They'll come up with something, but don't expect it be anywhere close to the spending frenzy they had last offseason.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was sacked four times and hit 11 times in the team's Week 9 win over the Houston Texans, and the Colts have allowed 63 quarterback hits this year, the third most in the league. Luck has been sacked 19 times in 2013. 'We have to be more consistent,' head coach Chuck Pagano said. 'Toward the end of that (Houston) game, when we're making big plays, we got things blocked up. Andrew has time, he can step up and make those big plays to T.Y. (Hilton). It's just a matter of doing it down after down on a consistent basis.'
Huddle Up: The Colts' concern is legit as it's only a matter of time before Luck takes a hit that will take a few games to recover from. And you thought Indy without Reggie Wayne was a scary fantasy proposition.
