Mike Wells: Anderson would have to beat out Kendall Langford in order to move into the starting lineup. And that means the Colts overpaid in giving the veteran Langford a four-year, $17.2 million contract back in March. Anderson is the frontrunner to back Langford up next season. The goal is for the Colts to have depth on the defensive line so that they still have fresh legs in the fourth quarter of games.
Wells: There’s always a chance, but Thomas will enter training camp no better than third on the depth chart at left guard behind Lance Louis and Hugh Thornton. He could slide down to fourth at that position when Jack Mewhort moves back to his starting role at left guard once right tackle Gosder Cherilus is healthy.
