Colts To Sign OL Sam Tevi

Following the retirement of Anthony Castonzo, the Colts have been seeking a new left tackle. The organization has added one potential replacement, as NFL.coms’ Tom Pelissero reports (via Twitter) that Indy has signed offensive lineman Sam Tevi.

The 2017 sixth-round pick out of Utah had spent his entire four-year career with the Chargers, including three seasons as a full-time starter. After starting 29 of his 30 games at right tackle between the 2018 and 2019 seasons, Tevi started 14 games at left tackle in 2020. He finished the season having appeared in a career-high 1,025 snaps (87 percent of the Chargers’ offensive possessions).

The Colts have been relatively busy looking for players to protect Carson Wentz‘s blindside. We learned last week that the team was hosting free agent lineman Julie’n Davenport.

As Charean Williams of writes, the Chargers will likely turn to Storm Norton to replace Tevi’s spot in the lineup. The 26-year-old joined the organization last summer, and he proceeded to appear in six games (with three starts).

    Theyll draft a lineman in the draft. Slater, Leatherwood, Darrisaw, Vera-Tucker have been mocked to them in the 1st.

      Colts with their cap space should invest in a couple vets on 1 year deals. This lets them extend everyone they want to keep and means next offseason they can re work the cap situation to accomodate the bigger deals.

      I’d suggest bringing back Hilton on a front loaded deal, while also throwing Kenny Stills a 1 year offer, give Tre Boston another chance as a Hooker replacement and then James OShaughnessy as depth for TE.
      In the first round draft a OT and in the second round grab a CB.

      You’ve address the OL, got Wentz some more options and kept the defence good. With Taylor, Hines and possibly Mack they should run the ball more behind a good line. But when Wentz does throw I expect them to move the chains occasionally but also look to go deep and catch teams sleeping. Hilton, Stills and Pitman would all be good going deep and Wentz has an arm.

    Can Braden Smith play LT? It might be easier to find a young guy and let them learn at RT rather than sticking them in the fire at LT. Pinter could play RT and then the Colts could draft depth.
