12. OT Anthony Castonzo, Indianapolis Colts

2019 Salary: $11,050,000

Where he will sign: Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts come into free agency with more money to spend than they probably know what to do with. At this moment, they’re slated to have about $107 million in cap space to maneuver with. Much of that money will go to re-sign their own, homegrown talent.

One particular player that comes to mind is Anthony Castonzo, the team’s long-time starting left tackle. He’s been one of the league’s most reliable blindside blockers since entering the league back in 2011 and has earned another sizable deal over the last couple of years. Just ask the Colts’ quarterbacks and running backs who enjoy his blocking on a weekly basis.

There will certainly be plenty of interest in Castonzo, one of the only proven left tackles set to enter free agency in 2020. However, if the Colts know what’s good for their franchise and quarterbacks, they’ll ensure that he stays in Indianapolis for at least a few more years.

Castonzo will continue to bring in the big bucks, especially with the Colts sporting so much cap space. Although he’s battled injuries and missed a few games over the last couple of seasons, I can’t imagine Jim Irsay moving on from the former 22nd overall pick.
