Le’Veon is at it again commenting on Colts related pictures on Instagram. Either this guy is obsessed with Luck, or he’s really trying to drop some hints about wanting to join the horseshoe.
Originally I had said that the Colts shouldn’t pursue Bell during this upcoming offseason because of a probable hefty price tag and because of the success the Colts are having with their current run game. Mack and Hines have been good. The offensive line has been marvelous. The offense as a whole has really come together for this second half of the season. Why would we need to change anything up by trying to add Bell to the team?
Like I said, originally I didn’t think it was necessary, but maybe, just maybe, I’ve had my mind changed. Why would it help? Well, the Colts for one will have a ton of cap space for next year, if not the greatest amount of any team and Bell is still arguably a top 5 running back in the league, considering he doesn’t miss a beat after sitting out this year. The Colts right now aren’t a team of stars. In fact, our stars right now aside from Luck are of course T.Y. Hilton and two amazing rookies in Quenton Nelson and Darius Leonard. The way this Colts team looks with Luck and all these average players around him is really something to talk about. Currently on a 5 game win streak with basically no superstars other than Luck.
I honestly expect the Colts to make the playoffs but with a potential addition of Bell, I can see a deep run in the playoffs next year. Don’t get me wrong I love Mack and Hines in the backfield, but how more complete will the Colts be if they get a terrific back in Bell next year. And with all the cap space we have, I say take a chance at him, because right now I see a fairly complete playoff team full of young talent on both sides of the ball. There’d be nothing wrong with making a hard push for Bell during the next offseason.
