Indianapolis Colts cornerback Greg Toler has signed with the Washington Redskins. Toler spent three seasons with the Colts.
Former Indianapolis Colts cornerback Greg Toler has agreed to a one-year contract with the Washington Redskins, per NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.
The move may come as no surprise to Colts fans. Toler had been the team’s starting corner aside Vontae Davis, and never truly developed into the player that General Manager Ryan Grigson envisioned when he signed Toler to a three-year, $14 million contract during the 2013 NFL Free Agency period.

In his three years with the Colts, Toler had three interceptions and 128 tackles in 36 total games. He only played a total of 10 games in 2015 with the Colts due to injury.
Given his lack of productivity and the Colts’ recent signing of Patrick Robinson, it comes as no surprise as to why Grigson decided to not re-sign Toler.
Now for Indy, the question remains as to whether or not they will decide to stick with Robinson as the team’s second starter, or look to the upcoming NFL Draft to try to build up some depth at the position.
Regardless of what happens, the Colts will need to find a solution and fill the void of a starting cornerback that will be left with Toler’s absence. Davis has proven that he is a reliable option, it is now up to either Robinson or whoever else Grigson could go with via the draft before the season’s start.
The Colt’s defense ranked 26th-overall in yards allowed last season, a ranking that the front-office would like to see become higher in 2016.
