Free Agency 2016

Colts Sign QB Scott Tolzien


The search for Andrew Luck’s backup is over as the Indianapolis Colts agreed to terms with former Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Scott Tolzien.

Tolzien is the epitome of a professional backup quarterback.  He is a solid leader, will help the starter, has a very high football IQ, and not talented enough to threaten any legitimate starter.

The Colts hope they won’t be seeing much of Tolzien in the huddle after preseason ends, but with Andrew Luck missing half of 2015, anything is possible.

The Packers will now promote 2015 fifth round draft pick Brett Hundley to the backup job behind the great and mostly durable Aaron Rodgers.
