Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis' head coach, was Kruger's offensive coordinator while in Baltimore which means the two have some familiarity with Madden 23 coins each other which could give the Colts an advantage in the bidding war rumored to be in. Like the Browns they Colts have plenty of cash to spend in the free market, with almost $43 million available for spending this offseason.
Both the Browns and the Colts both require Kruger. The teams didn't do well on defense against passes last year, as the Browns placed 25th in Madden NFL 23 while the Colts, despite playing in the playoffs, were 21st.
Dawgs By Nature The Kruger character would be expensive
As per Aaron Wilson, an Madden NFL 23 source predicts that Kruger will command an agreement worth between $10 million to $12 million annually. It's likely that Kruger, being one of the top-rated players in the season, will have a five-year agreement, and could end with a contract worth $60 million especially if the Colts along with the Browns are involved in an auction.
With almost as much money to spend, a trusted head coach and a playoff squad in place, it's likely that the Colts are likely to win an auction if the bids are equivalent in price. Indianapolis will likely offer top price, because Indianapolis needs to fill the void left by Freeney.
Still, the Browns are likely to be in the mix and aren't ruled out until Kruger decides to move on.
