Indianapolis Colts Free Agency: Colts Free Agents 2022

It has already been an eventful start to the offseason for the Indianapolis Colts. They had some coaches changes, due to some getting promotions elsewhere. Indianapolis also recently pulled off a Carson Wentz trade with no clear replacement for him. But with money to spend and a solid team everywhere else, the Indianapolis Colts free agency is going to be an interesting and likely exciting one.

Below, we will look at the Colts’ cap space to see how much they have to spend. However, teams can now manipulate the cap to sign nearly any player they would like. We will also go over other Indianapolis Colts free agency information, including their own 2022 free agents and define what each type of free agent is.

Defining the Type of NFL Free Agents

Unrestricted Free Agents

An unrestricted free agent (UFA) can freely talk to or sign with any team after the start of the new league year. Any player with four or more accrued seasons in the NFL can be a UFA.

The net loss and gain of UFAs for a team are used to calculate the next season’s compensatory draft picks, but no other compensation is available to a team that sees a player leave as a UFA.

Restricted Free Agents

A player must have three accrued NFL seasons to be a restricted free agent (RFA). Before the new league year begins, a team can place one of three tenders on a restricted free agent (first, second or original-round tender). Essentially, this gives the player the option to return to the team on a one-year deal.

The RFA is allowed to seek deals with other teams, but the tendering team (original team) has the opportunity to match the offer and keep them. If the tendering team doesn’t match the offer, the signing team may need to give a draft pick according to the level of tender used on the player.

Exclusive-Rights Free Agents

Exclusive-rights free agency (ERFA) is only eligible to players who have two or fewer NFL seasons accrued. Teams can use an ERFA tender to any of these players before the start of the new league year, and it stops the player from negotiating contracts with other teams. The player can sign the tender, which is a one-year deal at their position’s minimum salary, or they can negotiate for a longer extension.

Finally, RFAs or ERFAs who do not receive a tender before the league year begins become “street free agents.” Street free agents have the same rights as UFAs, but they are not counted in the compensatory pick formula.
