The Indianapolis Colts have always been a salary-cap-conscious team since general manager Chris Ballard took over the front office in 2017.

Even though a few of their players are ranked among the highest-paid players at their respective positions, the Colts always seems to be among the teams with the most salary cap space when the offseason arrives.

Paying for talent is a part of the business, though, and with training camp right around the corner, we wanted to look at how the Colts stack up in their positional spending relative to the rest of the league.

In doing so, we’ll be using the figures from Spotrac to see where the Colts stack up:
