Report: Eric Fisher is not an Indianapolis Colt, yet

The former Chiefs tackle met with the club but left without a contract.

Earlier this week, it was reported that former Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Eric Fisher was meeting with the Indianapolis Colts. But he left Indianapolis without a contract in place, according to Jim Ayello of the Indianapolis Star.

The interest makes sense, as the Colts are in search of a new left tackle. In addition, their current general manager, Chris Ballard, was the Chiefs’ director of player personnel when Kansas City selected Fisher first overall in 2013.

Fisher was the Chiefs’ starting tackle for eight seasons, and in 2021, he played in 15 regular-season games and two playoff games before tearing his Achilles in the AFC title game. The Chiefs released Fisher along with right tackle Mitchell Schwartz in early March. Fisher thanked the team and city on Instagram.

Kansas City had openly suggested that perhaps a window may be open for Fisher to return to the club — but that was in mid-April, before the Chiefs traded for former Baltimore Ravens tackle Orlando Brown Jr. and added two more offensive linemen in the NFL Draft.

Still, at the time of this writing, Fisher is not an Indianapolis Colt — or a member of any other team, for that matter.
