They don’t have to do anything right now. He’ll be on the practice squad week 3.

Walker already re-signed to be their practice squad QB. Given his performance this preseason most don’t think Kelly would clear waivers if put on the PS

There's going to be more yammering about this Kelly jamoke on this board than about literally hundreds of productive players this season, isn't there?

The Colts just signed Brissett to 2/30, another sign they’re over the moon for Kelly to return.

They like him enough for him to be on the 53 when he comes back from suspension. Keeping 3 QB's on an active roster is rare. He's going to play this year. On the other hand, I'm not sure if Hoyer is actually coming in to play; he's coming in to hold a clipboard and mentor Brissett and Kelly. Being Brady's backup for 4 or 5 years has surely taught him some things he can pass onto the younger guys.

So, 9 million to be a second QB coach?

Is that more likely than the fact they don’t like Kelly as much as you seem to?


If they didn't like Kelly quite a lot they'd have cut him or put him on the PS, and they certainly wouldn't waste a spot on the 53 with him. This isn't complicated. On paper Brissett is the starter, Hoyer is the backup, and Kelly the third. However, I suspect you may actually see Kelly be the guy to go in if Brissett gets hurt or stinks. Go check out a Colts message board. That's what the majority of them think this morning as well.


I would check today's Cubs game thread before using a message board as some form of validation.

It's pretty well known that all great QBs require a couple well paid veteran backups behind them

If he’s put on the 53 after his suspension then clearly they have a reason for doing so. They have literally nothing invested him and he’s not a Taysom Hill type QB who can do other things like run the wildcat or return kicks, so what’s the point of him being on the 53 if they don’t see him fitting in somehow either this season or in the future?

You keep saying this, but he's not on the 53.

Given how he has performed in the preseason last year and this year (6th best QBR among all QB’s this preseason), I think he’d be competing for the starting job right now if not for the suspension. He’s better than Brissett. Anyone with eyeballs can see that. I think Kelly starts a game this season at some point.

Ohhh snap. Last time he played in the superdome he put up 375 yards and 4 TD’s.

Sounds like a plan.

Seriously though, the Swag v. Johnny Football battles in the XFL are gonna be delightful.
