The Indianapolis Colts may lose a key member of their secondary school.
Colt’s free-agent cornerback TJ Carrie is attending the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, according to Jeremy Fowler, senior NFL reporter at ESPN.
Carrie appeared in 15 games for the Colts in 2020 and made two starts. He recorded 32 tackles (1 for loss), 1 fumble recovery, 2 interceptions, 8 pass breakups, and 2 touchdowns in total.

The eighth-year veteran played an important reserve role in the Colts ‘defensive field, starting week 3 against the New York Jets, again in week 10 against the Tennessee Titans, and again at short notice for the Colts in the Colts’ wild card playoff game against none other than the bills.
He provided the Colts with a quality game when they needed it, although it has had some ups and downs.
According to Pro Football Focus, 2020 was the second best season in Carrie’s career with a grade of 67.9. In coverage, he allowed receptions on 24 of 42 targets (57.1%) for 347 yards (14.5 average) and 2 touchdowns.
Although Carrie would continue to be an important signature for the Colts, the return of Xavier Rhodes and Marvell Tell III helps the Colts in that department.
Would it be a huge loss to the Colts if Carrie signs elsewhere? Drop your thoughts in the comment section below!
