Osweiler’s visit comes just days Andrew Luck’s shocking retirement. Jacoby Brissett, who has played in 23 games with 17 starts over three seasons, is now expected to be the team’s starting quarterback when the season opens, but the Colts are looking to add some depth.
The Colts still have Phillip Walker and Chad Kelly, however, Walker hasn’t played in a regular-season game and Kelly will miss the first two games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
“Phil has been here for a while so we have a lot of belief and confidence in Phillip. He knows our offense. He knows this locker room. Those are going to be the decisions that we have to make in the next week to 10 days,” coach Frank Reich said Monday.
Osweiler would add veteran depth for Colts quarterbacks as he was picked in the second round of the 2012 draft. Last season, he filled in as a starter for the Dolphins when Ryan Tannehill was injured, playing in seven games with five starts. He threw for 1,247 yards and six touchdowns with four interceptions.
He also spent time with the Broncos and Texans.
