Boy, I really hope the Colts claim Maurice Evans on waivers.

If nothing else, he could be a good short-term solution for the bigger type of DE they now want.

Ed Johnson was a dope at Penn State (and afterward), he went undrafted, but right now he's the best Colts DT by far and is a very good player. Take the chance on Evans imo, maybe the light has turned on for him too. Especially with a former college teammate in Johnson to clue him in to the opportunity before him.

That is what I am hoping for right now.

Dom Rhodes is available, not quite sure what to think about that. We know what Rhodes can bring to the table, but that fact of that matter is that he's already lost some of his speed and could be somewhat near the end of his career. Mike Hart has his career ahead of him, if he can stay healthy.

I wouldn't be mad if they brought Dom back, but with Addai healthy and future stud Donald Brown, having his veteran experience isn't necessary like it was last year. I wish him well though, I think it was a bad move by Buffalo to release him because they need his pass blocking experience in their attempt at a no-huddle offense (with a completely brand new offensive line).

The argument about Dominic Rhodes that I would bring is that if Mike Hart is hurt, and can't play at his full level, then Rhodes should be brought back as he is a massive upgrade over a hurt Mike Hart, and an upgrade over both Lance Ball and Chad Simpson. He could also provide veteran leadership and experience to the likes of Brown, Hart and potentially Ball, if Ball is retained on the Practice Squad.

I don't know that Rhodes is an upgrade over Ball or Simpson. There is a reason he got cut. And Bills are in bigger need of back then we are with Lynch being out for 4 weeks.

If we had resigned Rhodes in the Offseason then we would have signed him as the player who lead the team in total Touchdowns. It would have cost the team a fair amount for an older Running Back. Now, if the team resigns him, we are getting a player who can't make it on a team with out a starter for 1/4 of the season. He'll come much cheaper. I think Rhodes is an improvement over Ball and Simpson, he showed that last year.

Default 3 guys I like

Justin Miller, KR, waived from Raiders, returned 2 kickoffs for TDs last year.

Yamon Figurs, KR, waived from Ravens, excellent speed, will help with return game as well.

Mitch King, unwisely chose Titans, he is cut, I do think the Colts may be interested in him, they were one of the teams that vied for his services as an UDFA, he just chose the Titans

Sad to see Mike Hart cut, but maybe last year's torn ACL and the current ankle injury let him land on the Colts' practice squad for the time being.

Not surprised Chad Simpson made it over Lance Ball, I always said Simpson was the better player. Shouldn't have gone against myself in my projected depth charts. Simpson has speed, but it's north-south speed. And he can catch the ball and do decent in pass blocking.

Terrance Taylor hardly saw much play time this preseason, I wonder if the Colts weren't purposefully trying to limit game tape for other teams to see him?

The more experienced Daniel Muir makes it.

7 linebackers, including Keiaho, Hagler, Humber, and Senn. I'm ready for the team to move on from Keiaho now.

He wasn't really able to compete this offseason and thus the team couldn't really evaluate him. Hopefully teams will be wary given the injuries and not claim him and he can spend a year on the Practice Squad, get healthy and show us what he can do next year.

I just don't know about Simpson. Maybe he will be a good player for us but I could see us bringing in a replacement (maybe Rhodes) in the next couple of days.

It will be interesting to see if they retain Muir after Week 1 when Ed Johnson is brought back into the 53. Muir's playing time could be limited but he could be retained and spell with Mookie. I was very excited when Taylor was drafted and was surprised at how little time he got in PreSeason. I just hope he clears waivers because I could see a team (like the Lions or Falcons) having a go.

Keiaho is our backup Linebacker. He's the only one that can legitimately backup at MIKE, and is probably a better backup at both WILL and SAM than the other three, while the other three, especially Senn, are very good at Special Teams.

I'm a bit surprised that Taylor didn't make it, but let's face it, he'll probably never going to be an every-down DT. Anthony, Ed and Muir are all just as big and probably better. I do hope we can retain him on the PS.

I'm very glad Humber and Lacy made the squad. Both look like good finds by BP.

Too bad there wasn't enough room for Tauiliili also, he impressed me too. I hope he'll be on PS.

Default The tweener era is dwindling

I see tweeners like Marcus Howard and Curtis Johnson probably going to 3-4 teams as LBs, where they should have gone in the first place.

I can see a shift in run containment along with pass rush at DE, I can see a guy like Mitch King being picked up, seriously, I do.

Both Taylor and Hart can be on PS if they clear waivers, so I would not be surprised if that happens, same with Grady as well.

BP had to have a lot of balls to admit 5 of his last 2 draft's picks were bad - Marcus Howard, Steve Justice, Mike Hart, Terrance Taylor, and Jaimie Thomas

I do not see tweeners drafted for Coyer's system anymore.

I don't think he's declaring Mike Hart, Terrance Taylor or Jaimie Thomas as bad. I think with both Taylor and Thomas he's saying good players but need to mature into the NFL and are better off doing that on the Practice Squad. With Hart he's saying take a year, ease yourself back into and we'll see about you next year. I don't believe the Colts have seen the last of Hart, Taylor or Thomas.

Well, I don't know if those picks were bad as much as maybe the rest of our players are good.

I think those players were victims of depth.

Hey, a good zone blocking prospect in many Colts fan mock drafts - OT Jamon Meredith got released by the Packers. Also, OT Alex Boone got released by the 49ers.

Alex Boone may be more of a project but Jamon Meredith may have more upside with us as a tackle. Worth a shot???

The Colts probably aren't done just yet, I agree. At least one more move could be coming.

Yeah, that was a bummer, but not surprising. Someone was bound to pick him up, and the Colts have among the worst waiver priority because they are among the best teams in the league. I just wonder who else put a claim on him, if the Colts were one.

Jamon Meredith passes waivers and the Packers signed him to their practice squad, per rotoworld.

But there is at least one addition to the Colts so far, safety Aaron Francisco formerly of the Arizona Cardinals:

Quote:
Francisco to the Colts

Former Cardinals safety Aaron Francisco will sign a one-year deal with the Colts, his agent said today.

Francisco was a vested veteran so he wasn't subject to the waiver process. He was a free agent and decided the Colts were the best fit for him. The Colts will be without starting safety Bob Sanders for a week or two, so they were looking to bolster the position.

Francisco was on his way to Indianapolis on Sunday, said his agent, Max Hannemann.

The Cardinals cut Francisco on Friday. He could get a chance to play against his old team. The Cardinals play the Colts in Glendale in week three.
The word on him is great special teams player, horrible defender.

Sounds better than Giordano imo.

Adam Schefter's Twitter says...

Colts waived DB Matt Giordano and claimed off waivers LB Cody Glenn (D5-09 choice of Washington; 6-0, 240, Nebraska).

Interesting.

Colts have announced the Practice Squad:

Tight end Colin Cloherty, wide receivers Sam Giguere, John Matthews and Taj Smith, defensive lineman John Gill, running back Mike Hart and guard Jaimie Thomas.

No Terrance Taylor or Lance Ball?

No Taylor and no Howard on the roster is puzzling at best. At least Humbler made the team after a great preseason.

1. Good to see Francisco over Giordano as a back-up safety, if Francisco is the special teams standout he's supposed to be. They're both bad safeties, but Giordano wasn't a good special teams player either. Back-ups should be good special teamers for Coach Ray.


2. Speaking of upgrading special teams, maybe that's part of the appeal in Cody Glenn. Interesting roster pick-up, the Colts must have liked what they see in evaluating him before the Draft or in his time with Washington in the preseason.

He's a weakside linebacker prospect though, from all indications. 8 linebackers in total and now behind Session is a glut with Jordan Senn, Cody Glenn, and Freddy Keiaho. Some fat to be trimmed there, I think. Maybe real soon, after Week 1 when Ed Johnson completes his suspension.


3. There's still one more practice squad spot left, keep in mind. Adrian Grady or Terrance Taylor would be my guess maybe, Grady the more favored.

John Matthews was my sleeper before training camp, but he made some major mistakes in the last two preseason games. Looked like Brett McDermott would get the PS nod over him, but Matthews showed something for him to stick.

I wonder about Giguere, but the Colts saw something in Dan Federkeil and developed him for years, and Federkeil looks pretty good now.

Wait, doesn't someone else have to be released? We've added 2 and released 1.
