Colts NT David Parry has reached a plea deal in his drunk driving case.

He has avoided jail time, and will escape with probation. Parry pled guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct and felony "attempt to commit unlawful means of transportation." Parry drunkenly jacked a "transportation cart." He's facing suspension, but will likely keep his roster spot.

Colts signed LB Jon Bostic, formerly of the Lions.

A 2013 second-round pick of the Bears, Bostic has settled in as a core special teamer type. He missed all of 2016 with a broken foot. He will have to earn his spot on the 53-man roster, even in Indy.

Colts signed TE Mo Alie-Cox.

Alie-Cox is a former basketball player for VCU. These sorts of signings always generate a lot of hype, but rarely pan out. That being said, the Colts pulled off the experiment with Erik Swoope. The practice squad is probably a best-case scenario for Alie-Cox in 2017.

Speaking Monday, Andrew Luck confirmed his shoulder operation stemmed from his Sept. 2015 injury.

Luck got his shoulder wrecked in Week 3 2015 against the Titans, missing the first two starts of his career. He treated the issue with rest and rehab the past two years, but decided the regimen was no longer enough. Missing the entire offseason, Luck is considered questionable for the start of camp, but has insisted he will be ready for Week 1.

Colts DB Darius Butler said he's permanently moving to safety.

Butler said he asked to play more safety last season, and he got his wish as the year went on in 2016. Re-signed to a one-year deal in March, Butler figures to handle the "centerfielder" role as the free safety, with SS Clayton Geathers playing closer to the line. The Colts badly need a No. 2 corner.

Colts signed DT Johnathan Hankins, formerly of the Giants, to a three-year, $30 million contract.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal includes $14.5 million guaranteed. It's a big get for the Colts' talent-bereft defense, and as big of a loss for the G-Men. Hankins was one of the anchors of New York's top-five run defense last season. The No. 49 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Hankins just turned 25. He's been a bit inconsistent to this point in his career, but put a lot of great football on tape. GM Chris Ballard is off to a solid start in Indy.
Apr 13 - 1:34 PM

The New York Post reports the Giants have a four-year, $28 million offer on the table for free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Hankins has continued to shop his wares in hopes of landing something more lucrative, but he's yet to find any serious takers. The Giants' offer is identical to the deal signed by Nick Fairley in New Orleans. Fairley was a better player than Hankins last year, but Hankins is younger with more long-term upside. Ultimately, Hankins' likeliest landing spot remains New York.

The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts are unlikely to sign free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Hankins left his visit Tuesday without a contract. The Colts have a huge need at nose tackle, but aren't willing to meet Hankins' asking price. With Miami also reportedly out on Hankins, re-signing with the Giants is looking like his most likely landing spot.
Apr 12 - 5:05 PM

ESPN's Field Yates reports free agent DT Johnathan Hankins is visiting the Colts.

It's his first-known visit. Easily the top overall player still on the market, Hankins is trying to increase his leverage with the Giants. Still only 25, Hankins would be a big get, both literally and figuratively, for a Colts defense that needs help in every phase. The Colts have close to zero defensive line talent.
Apr 11 - 4:23 PM

Colts GM Chris Ballard suggested Robert Turbin could have a bigger role this season.

"It’ll be interesting to see if he can progress even more on first and second down and take some of the load off [Frank Gore]," Ballard said. "But that’ll be completely up to our coaching staff and Robert and how he performs." Turbin scored eight total touchdowns in 2016, but he touched the ball just 73 times. That touch total could grow as the Colts look to lessen Gore's workload, but that would likely hinge on what Indy does in the draft. Gore will turn 34 in May.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan has "heard" there is "another team in [the] mix" for free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Hankins has been holding out for a better deal than the reported multi-year offer the Giants have had on the table "for weeks," but he has yet to find it. It is possible his agent is spreading rumors of "another team" to get New York to up the offer. Hankins remaining with the Giants still seems like the most likely outcome.
Apr 8 - 9:56 AM

Colts DE Henry Anderson said he was not fully healthy in 2016.

Anderson's promising rookie year ended with a torn ACL which sidelined him until Week 3 last season. Another knee issue cost him three more games, and he never really looked like the same player. "I didn’t have the season that I wanted to," Anderson said. "The knee was definitely nagging me. It was incredibly frustrating." Now healthy and able to participate fully in the offseason program, Anderson should be in line for a bounce-back season.

The Colts' official website believes the "arrow is pointing up" on fourth-year TE Erik Swoope.

In-house reporter Kevin Bowen believes new GM Chris Ballard "really likes" Swoope, who is currently No. 2 on the depth chart behind Jack Doyle. A 6-foot-5 former basketball player, Swoope made big plays in 2016, averaging an eye-popping 19.8 yards on his 15 receptions. He could be a preferred red zone threat in 2017.
Mar 28 - 5:08 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said adding a young runner is "paramount."

Frank Gore remained reasonably effective last season, but he will turn 34 in May and is clearly trending downward. Indy did re-sign Robert Turbin earlier this month, but they need to look toward the future at the position. It will not be surprising if the Colts spend an early pick on a running back.
Mar 28 - 12:12 PM

Colts owner Jim Irsay hinted Andrew Luck (shoulder surgery) may not be fully ready for the start of training camp.

"We are not going to be rushing him," Irsay said. "We are going to make sure, if we need an extra arm in camp, as we start doing our work, we will be prepared for that." It makes perfect sense for the Colts to hold Luck out until he is 100 percent, and it sounds like that could mean he misses some time early in camp. There has been no indication Luck is in danger of missing Week 1.
