7. Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts will need a quarterback in 2021. Despite signing veteran Philip Rivers to a one-year deal during free agency in 2020, it’s highly unlikely that they bring Rivers back, who’s set to be 40 years old in 2021.

The good news for the Colts is that they’re expected to have upwards of $60 million dollars of cap space in 2021, which means they’ll have plenty of resources to invest in the quarterback position. Realistically, if head coach Frank Reich sees Trubisky as a viable option, there is no reason to think that Colts general manager Chris Ballard wouldn’t consider pursuing Trubisky in free agency.

It’s tough to tell whether or not Trubisky would really face some competition should be land in Indianapolis. 2020 fourth-round pick Jacob Eason is on the roster, as is Jacoby Brissett. The only person who’d really push Trubisky would be Eason, who has all the tools needed to be a solid starter.

While the Colts have one of the NFL’s best defenses, they lack a long-term solution to the quarterback position. They also have a solid offensive line and running game that has Jonathan Taylor leading the way. Trubisky would benefit from all these pieces and Reich and Ballard could get their quarterback of the future or just a stopgap until they find a better option.
