FA Update — Cincy makes an offer to Colts Restricted FA TE Ben Utecht

TE Ben UtechtUPDATED:: As of 4:20 PM EST, The Bengals have announced a deal with TE Utecht. The Colts are on the clock and have 7 days to match the offer. Let’s hope they don’t!!

As of this moment (338 PM EST) there is no known deal for Utecht. Seems that Cincinnati and the Jets are interested in him, and his agent has a known history of trying to run up the bidding for his clients. Of course, all of that will be tempered by the fact that Indy can match the offer if they choose, or the signing team giving up compensation. So the bidding isn’t likely to go deep or too long. Utecht and his agent will have to make a decision, and either the Colts will match, or the Jets/Bengals have a new TE.
