The Colts have yet to officially decide whether they will be picking up Anthony Castonzo‘s fifth year option, but they will, writes Mike Wells of ESPN.com. The left tackle’s option should be worth $7.438MM according to our Fifth-Year Option Tracker.
Here are some other notes from around the AFC:
- With the retirement of Phil Costa, the Colts are back on the market for a veteran to compete at center. Wells writes that they could look at free agents such as Jonathan Goodwin, David Baas, Kyle Cook, and Steve Vallos. Because Khaled Holmes is still young, Wells believes the team would be unlikely to draft a center to compete.
- The Ravens have huge needs at both free safety and offensive tackle, but the team does not always draft for need, writes Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. While those would be the most logical holes to fill, the team could elect to go best player available
- The Ravens could be interested in signing right tackle Eric Winston, writes Hensley. The team will most likely wait until after the upcoming draft before making a decision. If they draft a tackle in the first few rounds, they will not need Winston’s services.
