Colts agreed to terms with WR Duron Carter.

The deal isn't expected to be officially announced until next month, but all signs have been pointing Carter toward the Colts for weeks. Carter has been a hyped prospect for years, but couldn't make the Vikings as a 2013 undrafted free agent, due in part to character concerns. He then headed to Canada where he had a productive two-year stint for the Montreal Alouettes. Carter boasts imposing size at 6-foot-4, 200-ish pounds, but sure-thing prospects don't spend two years north of the border. He's a high-upside flier for the Colts, but not one that's guaranteed to make the roster, let alone earn a starting job.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent WR Duron Carter is "closing in" on a deal with the Colts.

This has been the expectation all along. Carter will be joining a crowded receiver corps, but offers oodles of upside at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds. Cris' son is coming off two very productive years in the CFL.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Colts associate head coach Rob Chudzinski's new contract is for only one year.

Per Rapsheet, Chud is the "likely heir apparent" to OC Pep Hamilton, whose name popped up in head-coaching searches this year. Be that as it may, a one-year deal keeps Chud's options open for 2016 if Hamilton doesn't move on.

The Indianapolis Star reports free agent WR Duron Carter is already free to sign with any team.

It was previously believed Carter couldn't sign before Feb. 10. The Indianapolis Star has tabbed the Colts as the "frontrunner" for Cris' son, but reports the Vikings remain in the mix. Despite all the hype surrounding his free agency, Carter would be far from a guarantee to crack anyone's 53-man roster.

Former agent Joel Corry confirms Trent Richardson's suspension voids the guarantees on his $3.18M 2015 base salary.

Richardson was suspended during the playoffs for conduct detrimental to the team. He'll likely file a grievance through the NFLPA, but if the suspension stands then the Colts can dump their inept running back without paying him the final year of his guaranteed rookie contract. It would be a tiny silver lining for the franchise, who gave the Browns a first-round pick to acquire Richardson early in the 2013 season. He's been outperformed badly by players named Boom Herron and Zurlon Tipton.

Colts re-signed Rob Chudzinski to a new contract under the title of associate head coach.

Chudzinski, who served as a "special assistant" to head coach Chuck Pagano in 2014, garnered interest from at least the 49ers and Rams over the last few weeks. It's interesting that he's passing on those offensive coordinator opportunities to stay in a background role with Indy. It's likely a financial promotion coupled with the presence of Andrew Luck (vs. Colin Kaepernick or Sam Bradford) swayed him. Regardless, arguably the top OC candidate that was still available is now off the board. Chud is a talent maximizer that loves to utilize the tight end in the pass game. His return is great news for Luck, Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener and the entire Colts offense that ranked No. 3 in the league.

Impending free agent FS Mike Adams would like to re-sign with the Colts.

Signed to a one-year, $955,000 deal in June, Adams ended up starting all 16 games, qualifying for the Pro Bowl. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 7 safety after two highly-uneven years in Denver. The Colts have been noncommittal on Adams' status. He turns 34 in March.

CSN Bay Area says it appears Rob Chudzinski is the 49ers' top candidate for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

Chudzinski's contract as a "special assistant" with the Colts expires Monday, making him a coaching free agent. At worst, he's one of the top candidates available. At best, he's at the top of the list. Other names linked to San Francisco include Mike Shanahan and Geep Chryst.

The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts remain one of the "frontrunners" to sign CFL WR Duron Carter.

Carter is very interested in signing with the Colts, but reportedly has concerns about immediate playing time. Long-term, we could see T.Y. Hilton as the Colts' slot receiver, with Donte Moncrief playing the X spot and Carter at the Z. The Vikings are also in the mix to sign Carter, who can't ink a deal until February 10.

ESPN's Mike Wells doesn't expect the Colts to re-sign OL A.Q. Shipley.

A restricted free agent, Shipley will likely be non-tendered. He graded out as a top-15 center by Pro Football Focus, but played limited snaps after losing his starting job to Jonotthan Harrison in Week 5. Shipley should resurface on a veteran-minimum deal.

The Indianapolis Star reports there's "nothing imminent" on a contract extension for Andrew Luck.

ESPN reported this week the Colts were working on a new deal for Luck. Entering the final year of his contract, Luck is expected to be extended at some point during the offseason. Luck led the NFL in touchdowns (40) and finished behind only Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger in passing yards (4,761). He's expected to command a deal that will make him the highest-paid player in the league, likely in the range of $25 million per season.

Colts LB Andrew Jackson was arrested in Kentucky Friday for careless driving and DUI.

A sixth-round pick of the Colts last season, Jackson recorded 13 tackles and one sack in 13 appearances in 2014. Already a talent-deficient, two-down player, this arrest could mark the end of Jackson's time with the Colts.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson said OLB Robert Mathis (Achilles') might not be ready for training camp.

Mathis will be 10 months removed from surgery when training camp starts. It puts him on track to be cleared if he avoids setbacks, but the Colts figure to move Mathis along slowly after he missed all of 2014. Mathis signed an extension in September and is under contract the next two seasons. Turning 34 in February, Mathis can't be counted on to make a big 2015 impact.

The Chiefs have dropped out of the running for CFL WR Duron Carter.

The Kansas City Star doesn't provide reasoning, but it's possible Carter's price tag proved too lofty. Carter is said to be seeking a signing bonus in the $100,000 range -- quite a bit more than a seventh-round draft pick.

Trent Richardson's suspension will extend to Week 1 of the 2015 season if he remains with the Colts.

The suspension was purportedly for both the AFC Championship Game and Super Bowl, but the Colts didn't make it to the Super Bowl. So T-Rich is technically suspended one more game. It's conceivable the Colts could use Richardson's suspension to free themselves from his 2015 guaranteed salary. The guarantees may void if Richardson's conduct was detrimental to the team.
