The Indianapolis Colts’ training camp does not start until August 1, but it is never too early to speculate which players will be on the hot seat coming into it.
After a disappointing 2015 season, the Colts have made a lot of changes this offseason. They replaced more than half of their coaching staff and brought in plenty of young talent to challenge their veterans for roster spots.
With so many changes occurring this offseason, it is clear the Colts want to wash everything that went bad for them in 2015. As a result, all the players who struggled for them last season are pretty much on the hot seat in 2016.
There will be a lot of pressure on players who underachieved in 2015 because their roster spots are not guaranteed. The Colts have no time for underachievers and appear ready to cut their losses if they feel players will not be contributors for them in 2016.
Some Colts’ players will be on the hot seat entering training camp. The team will closely evaluate these players because they have a solid group of drafted and undrafted rookies who are hungry to takeover roster spots.
Here are five Indianapolis Colts who will be on the hot seat when training camp begins in August.
