There’s plenty of time left in the offseason for the Colts to add another center to the roster if they choose to.
But for the sake of pure entertainment – and to further make some fans upset over the Costa signing – let’s take a look at the offensive line as if the Colts would be playing a game this Sunday afternoon.
Costa, Thomas, Thornton, Castonzo and Cherilus would be the likely starters. That group should be able to do an adequate job – at least better than last season’s group – of protecting quarterback Andrew Luck and blocking for the running backs.
I’m not sold that those will be the only three centers the Colts look at. It’s not in general manager Ryan Grigson’s blood to sit still and not look to make more moves. It likely won’t be Alex Mack, but don’t be surprised if there’s another center on the roster before the start of training camp.
