  • 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.

          • Looks spot on. Two RBs might be too much though, not sure.

              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.

                • 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.

                        I don't think we have seen the last of Hart, Taylor or Thomas either.

                        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:

                                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.
