Dolphins, Colts Expected To Be Strongest Pursuers Of Ndamukong Suh

Mar 4, 2015 8:50 PM

The Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts are expected to make the strongest pushes to sign Ndamukong Suh when free agency begins.

The guarantees in Suh's contract could exceed $60 million.

A source close to Suh's camp indicated he'd prefer to sign with the Dolphins, though the Colts and Detroit Lions aren't far behind.

Florida has no state income tax, which could push the Dolphins' package ahead of rival teams.

Suh has stated his aspirations of becoming a billionaire.

Cardinals, Colts, Cowboys, Chargers, Bucs On Adrian Peterson's List

Mar 4, 2015 4:59 PM

Adrian Peterson would consider a restructuring of his contract to help facilitate a trade.

"All the options are open," Nelson Peterson said of those scenarios. "There's no doors closed on anything at this time. … Adrian will come back from this with a vengeance. He plays hard anyway, but he's got an extra chip on his shoulder. He will bounce back from this."

Peterson would prefer a move to the Arizona Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts, Dallas Cowboys, San Diego Chargers or Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings are meeting on Wednesday to discuss next steps.

Colts Could Try To Void Trent Richardson's Contract

Feb 18, 2015 12:40 PM

Default language in Trent Richardson's contract permits the Indianapolis Colts to release him and void the remaining $3.184 million in guaranteed money for a wide range of reasons. 

Richardson was suspended for the AFC Championship Game after missing a walkthrough and flight.

The suspension, which general manager Ryan Grigson said was handed down for "personal reasons," potentially could allow the Colts to void the final season of Richard's contract without paying him the $3.184 million in guaranteed money he was set to earn.

The reason for Richardson's absence, the report says, involves complications with his girlfriend's pregnancy that could have endangered his child's life.

New ESPN Report On Deflategate Conflicts With Earlier Claims

Feb 17, 2015 11:51 PM

Kelly Naqi of released a report that conflicts with the report from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen that transformed the question of deflated footballs from a curiosity into a national sensation.

Regarding the halftime inspection of the footballs at halftime of the Colts-Patriots game, Naqi writes: “One source said [NFL executive Mike] Kensil personally checked the PSI (pounds per square inch) levels of all 12 footballs the Patriots had for use on offense and found that 11 of those 12 were underinflated by ‘one to two pounds.'”

Reported Mortensen on January 20: “NFL has found that 11 of the Patriots footballs used in Sunday’s AFC title game were under-inflated by 2 lbs each, per league sources.”

Naqi’s report is more consistent with our report from January 25 regarding Mort’s contention that 11 balls were underinflated by two pounds: “As one league source has explained it to PFT, the football intercepted by Colts linebacker D’Qwell Jackson was roughly two pounds under the 12.5 PSI minimum. The other 10 balls that reportedly were two pounds under may have been, as the source explained it, closer to one pound below 12.5 PSI.”

Meanwhile, the new report from ESPN ignores the confusing Super Bowl Sunday item from NFL Media insisting that some of the balls were just “a few ticks under” the minimum.

LaRon Landry Released By Colts

Feb 11, 2015 3:07 PM

LaRon Landry has been released by the Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts signed Landry to a four-year, $24 million contract in 2013 with the hope that he would be the hard-hitting safety they had been missing since Bob Sanders played for them.


Landry was suspended for four games for using performance-enhancing drugs last season. The Colts then placed him on the exempt/commissioner's permission list for a game after he returned from the suspension.

Colts May Not Bring Back Trent Richardson

Feb 9, 2015 8:32 PM

The Indianapolis Colts are unsure if they'll bring back Trent Richardson next season.

Richardson, whom the Colts acquired from Cleveland in September 2013, had weight issues during the season, was difficult to get in touch with and didn't tell the team he wouldn't be at the walk-through the day before the AFC Championship Game, a source said.

Richardson gained 15 pounds during the season, going up from 225 to 240 pounds.

Because of default language in his contract, the Colts could exercise an option to void $3.1 million in guaranteed money owed to Richardson next season. The NFL Players Association would likely challenge that ruling if it occurs.

NFL Confirms Colts GM Blew Whistle On Patriots

Feb 3, 2015 11:00 AM

Troy Vincent has confirmed that Indianapolis Colts' general manager Ryan Grigson contacted NFL officials about the New England Patriots using underinflated balls.

Vincent, football operations chief of the NFL, conducted an interview with "60 Minutes Sports" that airs Tuesday on Showtime, as reported Monday by, in which he said Grigson notified the league about a potential deflation problem.

Nobody in the Colts organization has confirmed those details, and Grigson was silent on the topic in the days leading up to Sunday's Super Bowl.

"Everything I'm sure is going to come out in the investigation, guys. Like I said, it's not appropriate for me to talk about. I can't do that," Grigson said Jan. 23 when asked whether he or anyone else in the Colts organization had notified the league about the Patriots using underinflated balls. "It's in the league's hands. I'm sorry."
