I really think Quinn Pitcock can be that guy for us at the 3-tech UT if he works at it. But I think a hard hitting LB that can stop the run like a Rob Morris is the biggest concern right now, next would be Harrison's future replacment, and finally the QB of the future to groom behind Peyton cause we all know its not Sorgi. The 49ers were succesfully cause they groom that QB in behind Montana before it was to late.

I think right tackle might be the biggest need, and could possibly be addressed in the 1st round next year in a very strong/big OL class, but defensive tackle also needs to be addressed with Darrell Reid being a free agent and next year's DT class looking good right now.

DT Vance Walker (no official numbers yet but somewhere around 6-2/285) of Georgia Tech seems like a very good candidate. He really burst out in his first season as a starter last year (45 tackles, 14 TFL, 8.5 sacks, 3 FFs), he seems suited as a pass rusher who can also do a solid job against the run. I later discovered McShay of ESPN had him going to the Colts in his early 09 mock, heh, he actually made a good pick.

But RT is a need, Diem's tenure with the Colts could end next offseason, and the Colts need to draft RT to complete their younger and superior OL of the future. Thankfully there look to be some really good prospects for the position, Big Ten guys especially.

Maybe WR is a consideration, depending on how the young guys (Aromashodu, Hall, Garcon, and Giguere) look. Derrick Williams of Penn State might not go high, I've always kind of liked him, and he might provide return capability as well.

Well, Derick Williams is certainly talented.

But as of right now, his biggest weakness is what Bill Polian values the most in WR prospects, route running.

Also, another big need for the Colts next offseason is a bigger DE who can play run downs. Josh Thomas was re-signed for 08, allowing the Colts to address that position/role in next year's Draft.

Aromashodu's biggest knock coming into the league was route running, and look where he was last season. I think Marvin and Reggie could help a young receiver along tremendously in that aspect of their game.

Aromashodu is coming into his third year as a pro and with the Colts (he was a fixture all season on the practice squad in 2006), hopefully he's ready to break out. If Harrison is eased into the season or faces some sort of suspension, who knows, maybe that opens up an opportunity for Devin.

He was better in college, but he's not as talented as Williams.

Butler has good speed, great hands and solid route running, but at 5'-9" 165lbs he's tiny.

I didn't know that. Thanks for the correction:) .

Bryan Fletcher and Dylan Gandy got released. A lot of us would like Kenton Keith gone:) . So that takes three out of the picture, most likely. Last year DeDe Dorsey was beaten by both KK and Dawson out of the backup RB job. This year, I am hoping that Mike Hart and Chad Simpson do the same. But I still believe KK will be there for his run-the-clock-run-only capabilities.

My updated depth chart would now be:

QB(2) - Peyton Manning, Jim Sorgi

RB(3) - Joseph Addai, Mike Hart, Kenton Keith

WR(6) - Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Anthony Gonzalez, Roy Hall, Devin Aromashodu, Pierre Garcon

TE(3) - Dallas Clark, Jacob Tamme, Tom Santi

OT(4) - Tony Ugoh , Ryan Diem , Michael Toudouze, Charlie Johnson

OG(3) - Ryan Lilja, Mike Pollak, Jamey Richard

OC(2) - Jeff Saturday, Steve Justice

DE(5) - Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Josh Thomas, Marcus Howard, Curtis Johnson

DT(6) - Ed Johnson, Quinn Pitcock, Raheem Brock, Keyunta Dawson, Darrell Reid, Eric Foster

LB(5) - Gary Brackett, Freddy Keiaho, Tyjuan Hagler, Phillip Wheeler, Clint Session

CB(6) - Marlin Jackson, Kelvin Hayden, Dante Hughes, Michael Coe, Tim Jennings, TJ Rushing

Safety(5) - Bob Sanders, Antoine Bethea, Matt Giordano, Melvin Bullitt, Jamie Silva

ST(3) - Adam Vinatieri, Hunter Smith, Justin Snow

DeDe was beaten by Kenton Keith, not Dawson.

They released by 3D and Dawson and kept KK and Lawton. Then later in the season, they added Dawson, because 3D made the Bengals team.

We should've kept 3D. He's better then KK.

DD was cut because he had a turf toe injury in one of the last preseason games, so he was gonna miss 4 or 5 weeks. They figured they couldn't wait that long, so they cut him. I'm not really sure that Keith beat him out, it may have been just the fact that we need a #2 RB for the first few weeks.

Talking about PSU prospects, I'm VERY high on DT Jared Odrick.

He's 6'-5" 295lbs with excellent athleticism for his size. He could be a great fit as either DE in the 3-4 system or 3-tech UT in 1-gap 4-3.

He will be a Junior next season, so he might not enter the next draft. He also suffered a season-ending hand injury last year, which could be a red flag.

Still, I wouldn't mind it at all if he winds up in Colts' uniform.

PSU's other starting DT, Chris Baker, is very similar to our own Big Ed Johnson, both in terms of ability and off-field problems.

Did you go to camp? If you think Keith's hands were bad, you should've seen Dorsey's. I don't remember ever seeing him catch a ball during any drill.

Roy Hall, beast that he is, is reportedly looking good in camp. Position-wise, he says he's seeing a little slot work, but primarily is the #2 split end to Reggie Wayne and learning from the great pro.

Also, I dropped Jamie Silva for Ramon Guzman in my proj depth chart. I never liked having only 5 LBs, and hope the Colts can keep Silva on the practice squad for a year until Giordano leaves in FA next summer.

I love the draft picks of Tamme and Santi (especially), so Robinson may be the odd man out. Although I respect his desire to compete and especially to make it as a blocking tight end, I think there's something to wanting to put an opponent on his ass on every play if he can. 255 lbs, he might be able to play some fullback and special teams too, which can help Gijon's cause.

Reading that article right now, Dungy praises Gijon's blocking and says that is his strong suit anyways, the development rests more on him as a receiving option. Good to hear.

Speaking of fullback, did you guys read the Luke Lawton article on Colts.com? Says he trying to get lighter by going down to 225-230 lbs. or thereabouts, to be a quicker back (he mentions running routes specifically) and special teamer. It's interesting, and could be a good move.

Looks like we've got some fans out there, boys. :D :D :D

I always find it funny when what we brew here trickles down the internet.

*****

I was thinking of Eric Foster: even though he was undrafted, he's a perfect fit imo and I don't think I'd leave him off the roster at all. Even if it meant having to cut someone else, like say Darrell Reid. Really looking forward to seeing him play in the preseason.

Although if he does well and wins a roster spot, does that move Keyunta Dawson to DE? That could help Freeney on first and second downs, if Dawson saw some of those snaps.

Also, speaking on the DL, really looking forward to seeing Marcus Howard. If he gets enough snaps, he might be a pass-rushing terror. With a big year, like say Mark Anderson two years ago with the Bears (we'd all love to see it hopefully), he might be a sleeper DROY candidate.

Colts trim 5 players from roster

Associated Press - June 16, 2008 1:34 PM ET

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Kicker Shane Andrus' annual tryout with the Indianapolis Colts has ended earlier than usual.

Andrus signed with the Colts for the third straight year in April but was 1 of 5 players released Monday, along with punter Chad Stanley, running back Justise Hairston, defensive tackle Dan Davis and center Pat Ross.

Andrus also was with the Colts in 2006 and 2007 but lasted until training camp both times. He signed with New York in January but was waived in February after the Super Bowl win over New England, and rejoined Indianapolis two weeks later.

The Colts open camp in Terre Haute on July 24.
Andrus needs to stick with a roster, he can play. A few teams should definitely give him a call.

Too bad about Hairston, I was hopeful about his prospects and looking forward to seeing him in the preseason.

Default Let's Geo: Ryan Diem *Revised*

Let's Geo: Ryan Diem



Ryan Diem is easily the biggest player on the Colts' entire roster at 6' 6" and 320 lbs., who turned 29 years old the first of July this year. He normally gives the Colts' offensive line some run-mauling ability, and does a solid job in pass protection for a right tackle.

Diem can be an above average if not good right tackle when healthy, but he has been a bit dinged up the last few years. He hasn't started all 16 games since the 2004 season, last year he started only 10 games and missed the last 6 games of the season thanks to a knee injury. However let it be said that despite injuries suffered around the end of the regular season the last few years, Diem has never missed a postseason start in his career which began with the 2001 season.

Unfortunately, he currently has a penchant for one (sometimes boneheaded/costly) penalty every game it seems. Perhaps he took the mantle for that auspicious role from recently-retired Tarik Glenn.

In February 2005, the Colts signed Diem to a 7-year, $36M contract with around 12M guaranteed. So he is currently signed through 2011. Assuming the salary breakdowns at Coltscap.net are correct ...


Here are the Colts' options
  • If the Colts cut Diem after this '08 season, cap-wise they are on the hook for 3.4M in remaining bonus money. Specifically 2.3M in '09 and 1.1M in '10.
  • If the Colts keep Diem for the '09 season, they still pay the 3.4M, but also will get another year of Diem starting at his '09 base salary of 3.75M.
  • If the Colts cut Diem after the '09 season, they will be on the hook for 1.1M remaining that season and nothing afterwards. However if they keep Diem for the '10 season, they get another year of him starting at his '10 base salary of 3.85M.
  • Diem's final season ('11) has no allocated bonus money remaining, however a base salary of 5.4M.

Code:
cut Diem  |      Colts pay (cap-wise)
after     |      2009     2010    2011
2008             2.3      1.1     0
2009             6.05     1.1     0
2010             6.05     4.95    0
2011*            6.05     4.95    5.4

*Diem's contract runs through 2011.

Summary

Keeping Diem through '09 is probably reasonable. Maybe 2010 too if he is playing well and staying reasonable healthy, although it could very well be more prudent at that point to pay him 1.1M as a released player and use the 3.85M elsewhere on the roster.

Updated to reflect Michael Coe going on injured reserve, which probably opens up a roster spot for veteran corner Keiwan Ratliff to make the team.

I like wide receiver Devin Aromashodu, but I think tight end Gijon Robinson could get the nod over him. I feel comfortable going into the season with five wide receivers, which is really six if you count Dallas Clark and maybe seven with Tamme.

Hey guys I just drafted Reggie Wayne and Anthony Gonzalez for my fantasy team ($ league). I was wondering when Harrison is coming back and if Peyton is definitely okay for the season. Wayne is starting with Fitzgerald, and Gonzalez is my 3rd WR. How do you think they'll do for me?

Marvin is back, so Gonzo will go back to the slot. As for Peyton, all reports are he should be a go within the week, so no worries there. Wayne should put up numbers similar to last year with Gonzo putting up better numbers than his rookie year, I think he'll see the field more this year.

1. Rushing is placed on IR thanks to a knee injury, bummer. Only five defensive backs leaves me leery somewhat, six is better. But that would mean promoting rookie Brandon Foster to the 53-man roster, I don't think he's shown enough for that. Maybe this opens the door for someone released by another team in final roster cuts (Jason David included?).

2. Is it just me, or do the Colts have some pretty good depth defensive ends to choose from: Josh Thomas, Jeff Charleston, Curtis Johnson, and Ben Ishola? Going to be very tough to cut at least two of those guys, if not three.

3. Colts NEED a sixth linebacker to start the season, until Tyjuan Hagler can fill that role mid-season when he's off the PUP list. Freddy Keiaho is injured yet again, and Philip Wheeler might not be fully recovered for the start of the season. Ramon Guzman can't be the only back-up able to play. I like some of what I've seen from Kyle Shotwell and Jordan Senn this preseason, but I give the nod to Victor Worlsey. He's in his second year with the Colts, and has experience at MLB which is a plus.

It's Jordan Senn. Hasn't he been playing first team reps at WLB? I remember him doing that against Buffalo (could be wrong though, not 100% on that), that leads me to believe he has a shot at a roster spot.

Hahaha.

Now it's not just every Colts blogger, the newspaper bloggers are swinging from our nuts too.

It never ceases to amaze me how much I post here trickles down the internet. I'm almost flattered, if the plagiarism wasn't so damn blatant in some cases.
