By signing Kruger, the Browns a dynamite player for the pass, while also taking him away from a Madden 23 coins divisional rival that is the same one who stole the first Browns franchise.
Indianapolis' interest in Indianapolis is understandable, given that the fact that the Colts recently decided to part ways with the former long-time pass rusher Dwight Freeney. Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis' head coach, served as Kruger's coordinator of defense in Baltimore which means the two coaches have a lot of experience with each and could give the Colts an edge in the bidding war rumored to be in. As with the Browns they Colts have plenty to spend in free agency, with more than $43 million available to spend in this offseason.
Both the Browns as well as the Colts both require Kruger. Each team was not very good in pass defense last year and the Browns scored 25th on the Madden NFL 23 while the Colts despite being being a playoff team, placed 21st.
Dawgs By Nature Kruger could be costly
Based on Aaron Wilson, an Madden NFL 23 source predicts that Kruger will command the sum of around $10 million to $12 million annually. It's possible that Kruger, as one of the most sought-after players this season, will be able to secure a five-year agreement, and could end up with a contract worth $60 million , especially if the Colts and Browns are in an auction.
With nearly as much money to spend, a trusted head coach , and madden 23 coins buy a playoff squad in place, it's likely that the Colts would probably win any bidding contest, provided that they are similar in terms of price.
