Margus Hunt will sign two-year deal with Colts

AP

Defensive end Margus Hunt has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Colts, NFL Network reported.

The Bengals drafted Hunt in the second round in 2013, but he never cracked the starting lineup or became the pass-rusher they hoped he would be. He has 1.5 career sacks, none over the past two seasons.

Hunt played in 15 games last year, the most of his career. The Colts have focused on upgrading their pass rush and probably see Hunt as a relatively low-cost option who could crack their rotation.

Per ESPN’s Field Yates, the Colts hosted Hunt and Titans center Brian Schwenke on free agent visits Monday.

    Sounds like Björn Werner 2.0 but I hope not.

    Had high hopes for Margus. Wouldnt surprise me if he blew up like Ahmad Brooks did after a few years in the league.

    Just added depth to the roster

    Margus Hunt is a good locker room guy who works hard and likes to compete.

    Unfortunately… Hunt has been hampered by a back injury that has lingered since before his senior year at SMU.

    I had hope for Hunt to be a solid off-the-bench guy to increase the depth/overall strength of the Bengals D-Line.

    I never (unrealistically) expected him too become a Pro Bowler considering he only had 4 years of football experience before entering the NFL.

    Good luck, Margus.

    I think he needs to put on some weight and play DE in the 3-4. He doesn’t have the speed to play DE in the 4-3.

    Remember when they were saying “He looks just like J.J. Watt” during Hard Knocks.

    Yeah they don’t either.

    I would be surprised if he makes the final roster, looks great but doesn’t have the attitude you need in order to play at the NFL level.

    I question his passion for the game, he’s athletic enough to be an impact player but it translated into production.

    Maybe a change of scenery and position will be good for him.

    Crap signing.

    Ballard is looking more and more each day like Grigson2.0
