Ryan has provided a spark for the Colt’s offense. Indianapolis traded for the 37-year-old quarterback during the offseason. Head Coach Frank Reich has been impressed by Ryan’s command of the offense. Ryan quickly learned Indy’s offense and has been progressing with his skill players.
Throughout training camp, Ryan has connected with multiple skill players including Jelani Woods, Andrew Ogletree, Mo Alie-Cox, Michael Pittman Jr, Alec Pierce, Ashton Dulin, and Nyheim Hines. Ryan has coached his young skill players and helped them make plays. Ryan’s leadership and coaching will help the Colts during the regular season.

Gilmore was one of the biggest free agent acquisitions for Indianapolis. The 2019 defensive player of the year has shined in training camp. Gilmore’s instincts and superb cover skills have been on display. He has picked off Matt Ryan multiple times and been a valuable asset in Gus Bradley’s defense.
Stephon Gilmore has received praise from Indy’s wide receivers. Rookie receiver Alec Pierce said, “going against Gilmore has made me better because he knows how to challenge recievers at the line.” Gilmore has also impressed Frank Reich. Reich said, “He’s the type of corner you fear.” Indianapolis hopes Gilmore can shut down half the field during the regular season.

Indianapolis needed to improve its pass rush and acquired Ngakoue via trade. Ngakoue has been one of the best pass rushers in the NFL. In seven seasons, he has posted 55.5 sacks. Ngakoue has challenged Colt’s tackles. Rookie Bernard Raimann said, “He’s a beast and I have enjoyed going up against him. If Ngakoue can continue to produce in 2022, the sky is the limit for Indy’s physical defense.
