Regarding the upcoming trade deadline, Colts HC Frank Reich said he discusses possible trade targets with GM Chris Ballard “all the time.”
“I’m in Chris’ office or he is in my office every day talking about everything related to this roster, everything related to where we are heading as a team (and) always thinking about what is the best move for the team,” Reich said, via Kevin Bowen of 1075TheFan. “You consider a lot of things. You look at everything. Chris obviously is running that show. We talk about it all the time. He does a great job of keeping me involved, especially on any relevant conversations that need to be had regarding those things (and) anything that gets serious. So those are discussions that we have all the time.”
