The Colts are releasing veteran DT Margus Hunt, a starter over the last three seasons.
Hunt has been decent in his three years with the Colts, but obviously not enough for them to honor his $3.5M due this season. The Colts are shedding some cap space as they are openly in the market for a new quarterback. Hunt isn't great, but his size and ability to break through the line will garner some attention in free agency. Expect the eighth-year defensive lineman to play a limited role elsewhere in 2020.
Margus Hunt continued his strong start to the 2018 season with four tackles, three tackles for loss, one sack, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery in the Colts' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.
It may be time to take Hunt seriously as he continues to overpower offensive tackles and find opposing quarterbacks. Hunt may have even more value in leagues that grant him defensive tackle eligibility.
Margus Hunt overpowered the Bengals' offensive line to get home for two sacks in Week 1. Hunt added a tackle for loss to go along with the sacks.
This one was a bit of a surprise performance as Hunt came into the game with 2.5 career sacks. He may be worth monitoring, but should probably remain on waivers for now. The bigger news might be the struggles of Bengals' right tackle Bobby Hart.
