Colts Discussing Donte Moncrief Trade
The Colts are open for business as the trade deadline approaches. TheÂ Colts haveÂ received calls onÂ Donte Moncrief and they are listening, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL. com (on Twitter). Â
The Andrew Luck-less Colts sank to 2-6 on Sunday with their 24-23 loss to the Bengals. Itâs no surprise that theyâre open to trading name players given their current position. Â Cornerback Vontae Davis, wide receiver T. Y. Hilton, running back Frank Gore, and offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo haveÂ also beenÂ mentioned in trade rumors. Teams that find the asking price for Hilton to be too richÂ may view Moncrief as a less thrilling yet less costly alternative.
Moncrief, 24, has 18 catches for 271 yards and one touchdown so far this season. Heâs on pace for far less than the 64 catches for 733 yards and six TDs that he had in 2015, his last complete campaign.
