Rogers will be tendered at the second-round level, per Pro Football Talk (via Twitter). That will bump the complementary wideout’s salary to nearly $3.1MM.
The Colts now have Devin Funchess in the fold, joining T.Y. Hilton. This stands to limit Rogers’ opportunities, but he made the most of them last season. Rogers caught 53 passes for 485 yards (second among Indianapolis wideouts) and two scores last season, his third with the Colts.
Indianapolis entered Monday with a league-high cap space figure, more than $100MM, so Chris Ballard is almost certainly not done adding to his team. The third-year Colts GM has been known to seek second-wave bargain signings and thus far has not spent big for one of this year’s prized talents. Though, it’s still early on that front.
