Kenny Moore II, a cornerback, may be lost by the Indianapolis Colts this summer. However, Dallas Robinson of Pro Football Network indicated the Colts as a potential destination for another NFL free agent cornerback.

Robinson projected that veteran defensive back Kendall Fuller would be the Colts’ top target.

“Although the Colts have historically been reticent to actively participate in free agency, this might be the time for GM Chris Ballard to make a move,” Robinson said. “With Anthony Richardson on a rookie quarterback contract, Indianapolis has the sixth-most cap room in the NFL with a depth chart that clearly needs improvement.

“Bringing in a seasoned cornerback to balance out a youthful group of defensive backs could be the right move, and Kendall Fuller seems like a good fit for Indianapolis. Gus Bradley’s Colts were the only team to play more Cover 3 last season, and Fuller’s passer rating against man in zone coverage was over 50 points higher.”

Fuller has spent his whole playing career with the Washington Redskins and the Kansas City Chiefs. He was originally selected by the Washington Redskins in the third round in 2016. In 2019, he was a part of the Chiefs’ historic victory in the Super Bowl with Patrick Mahomes.

After that, Fuller went back to Washington to start for the Commanders once more.

Over his career, Fuller has started 93 games. He has had 486 total tackles in 117 games, with 14 tackles for loss. In addition, he has 16 interceptions and 75 pass defenses to his belt.
In 15 games during the previous season, he recorded 79 total tackles, 9 pass defenses, and 2 interceptions.

This offseason, Spotrac estimated that Fuller’s market value on a three-year contract would be approximately $42.3 million. Fuller would receive an average salary of $14.1 million per year under such an agreement.

The Colts have almost $66 million in cap space, per Spotrac.

The Colts also have veteran cornerback Tony Brown as a free agent in addition to Moore.

For the upcoming season, Indianapolis will not have a cornerback who is older than 24 and who has played at least 26% of the defensive snaps for the squad.

The Colts would get depth and priceless veteran experience at cornerback if they signed Fuller.
