Player: Evan Boehm, 25 (will be 26 by Week 1)
Experience: Entering fourth NFL season in 2019
Free Agency Category: Restricted ("A player whose contract has expired and has fewer than four tenured years in the league. He may sign an "Offer Sheet" with any other team, but his original team has seven days to match any offer he receives. If the original team does not match the offer, compensation will be awarded in the form of draft picks from the signing team. The round and quantity of picks are determined by the "Qualifying Offer" made by the player's original team. If a RFA is tendered a minimum qualifying offer the compensation is the equivalent of the round in which that player was originally selected. If that player was originally a rookie free agent, no compensation is awarded.")
2018 Synopsis: Signed to the Colts' active roster from the Los Angeles Rams' practice squad on Oct. 8, Boehm played a critical role as the team's backup center with starter Ryan Kelly dealing with various injuries throughout the season.
