Anthony Lynn learned how to develop solid, working relationships with players from Rex Ryan.

None of the Colts’ key free agents will tempt new general manager Chris Ballard to use the franchise tag. Linebacker Erik Walden, tight end Jack Doyle and cornerback Darius Butler are the team’s top free agents. Losing any of those players in free agency will not cause the Colts to take a significant step back next season. Walden had a career-high 11 sacks last season, but he’ll also be 32 years old next season and he plays on a defensive unit that needs to get younger.

Could it work? It would be the most Patriots move ever, wouldn’t it, to sign Peterson for a year, coax another productive season out of him next to Tom Brady and get back to another Super Bowl? They’ve done it with enough veterans that it’s plausible with Peterson, and while he’d have to go there knowing the offense runs through Brady, he still talks in glowing terms about his time with Brett Favre. The chance to play with another legend and thrive in the Patriots’ atmosphere for a year could be appealing if New England had interest.

Lynn worked as a running backs coach most of his NFL career, but he got a chance to spread his wings as assistant head coach for Ryan with the New York Jets. The position offered Lynn an opportunity to sit in salary-cap and football-administration meetings and address the team in Ryan’s absence.

“It prepared me a lot,” Lynn said. “I give Rex a lot of credit. If Rex had gotten the flu, I was the head coach. If he couldn’t make a media appointment, I did it — press conference, show or whatever. So he helped me prepare for this by helping me see the big picture — the salary cap and how it works, why you have to move on from this player and how you’re going to build this team.”
