Indianapolis Colts Roster Cuts Candidates: Odds For Top Names

Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

We’ve officially reached the scorching days of summer across the Bluegrass and Hoosier states, which means the region’s lone NFL franchise has a shot at trimming their 53-man roster down to size before the league’s deadline.  

That means that a handful of Indianapolis Colts players of all ages will be on the edge of their seats as the dog days of summer roll by, with a potential roster cut looming on the near-distant horizon in Indiana’s capital city.  

With the post-June 1st deadline allowing teams to cut players and save more salary, - home to all things Kentucky sports betting - developed hypothetical odds of players to be cut from the Colts roster prior to the 2024 NFL season. Only players over $985K in cap hit were included.

Who Will the Colts Cut in 2024?

The top contender to be cut by the Colts this offseason is third year wideout D.J. Montgomery, who has six catches for 92 yards and one touchdown in his two-year NFL career out of Austin Peay.  

Montgomery is slated to earn a salary cap hit of $985,000 in 2024, which the Colts can write off entirely should they cut the 27-year-old Mississippi native, which is why we list him at -300 to be the leading contender cut in 2024.  

Throw in sixth year cornerback Chris Lammons at -200 and seventh year defensive end Genard Avery at -110 and you have the upper end of the Colts’ cut list, while longshots include defensive tackle Taven Bryan (+105) and tight end Mo Alie-Cox (+250).  

The player that would provide the largest amount of cap relief is Alie-Cox, who is owed $5.9 million this year, while Bryan and Lammons would each save the club $1.1 million if they are not included on Indy’s final 53-man roster.  

One way or another, second year head coach Shane Steichen will need to trim down the Colts’ roster ahead of Indy’s Week 1 clash against the Houston Texans on Sept. 8, with the quintet mentioned above providing a maximum total of $10.070 million in salary cap relief should they get cut from the team’s final roster ahead of the NFL’s deadline.
