The Indianapolis Colts may need to enter free agency looking for a backup option to quarterback Anthony Richardson depending on how the next month goes.

While Richardson is the unquestioned starter going into his second season, the 2023 campaign proved having a viable backup is vital. Gardner Minshew stepped in admirably and nearly helped the Colts get into the playoffs.
