    Cutting Gandy would suck, I like him, and I think Roby has a chance over Garcon, but other than that, I like it.

      Quarterback (2) Peyton Manning, Jim Sorgi

      Runningback (3) Joseph Addai, Mike Hart, Chad Simpson

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

      Tight end (3) Dallas Clark, Tom Santi, Jacob Tamme

      Offensive Tackle (3) Tony Ugoh, Ryan Diem, Michael Toudouze

      Interior OL (6) Jeff Saturday, Ryan Lilja, Mike Pollak, Steve Justice, Charlie Johnson, Jamey Richard

      Defensive end (4) Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Josh Thomas, Marcus Howard

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

      Linebacker (5) Gary Brackett, Freddy Keiaho, Tyuan Hagler, Phillip Wheeler, Clint Session

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

      Safety (6) Bob Sanders, Antoine Bethea, Matt Giordano, Melvin Bullitt, Brannon Condren, Jamie Silva

      Special Teams (3) Adam Vinatieri, Justin Snow, Hunter Smith


      Notable cuts
      RB Clifton Dawson
      RB Kenton Keith
      FB Luke Lawton
      WR Courtney Roby
      TE Bryan Fletcher
      OL Dylan Gandy
      OL Corey Hilliard
      DE Jeff Charleston
      LB Ramon Guzman
      LB Victor Worsley
      CB Keiwan Ratliff
      I think the RB2 and RB3 might be flipped, though both could see a lot of PT (for backups) if both prove themselves capable. I also think the Colts will keep another OT, maybe Hilliard? I'd be shocked if Gandy got cut over Johnson or Richard. Also, more LBs will be kept.


      The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

      If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

        I could see that based purely on the fact that Roby can't be on the practice squad and Garcon can.

          Some points:

          1. I definitely didn't like only having 5 linebackers, they do need more and in all likelihood will have more. But keeping a special teams ace like Silva, who could potentially take over at FS after Bethea, was too tempting for me. And I wouldn't cut maybe the team's best ST coverage guy in Darrell Reid, even if he is making 927K this season. I also would have put Texas CB Brandon Foster in if I could just find a space.

          2. No Fletcher or Gandy. I don't want to see either go ... but both guys are restricted free agents (signed to $927K as well) who are experienced in the offense, I thought going with the cheaper rookies might be the better way to go. I'd love to trade Gandy to KC or another team for a late 09 draft pick.

          3. Charlie Johnson not cut? No, he has good experience at tackle and can/will play inside, can come in as a blocking TE in goal-line packages. He needs to be kept ... for now. I hated cutting Hilliard, btw. I hope he uses this offseason to show the Colts he's their future RT.

          4. Garcon over Roby. I loved the addition of Roby this offseason, I think he can take advantage of this opportunity and potentially explode. Hopefully he finally blossoms, now that he is in right situation, and makes the roster ... but it sounds like the team sees something in Garcon, and maybe it's risky trying to get him on the practice squad. I really hope both guys make it a great battle all through camps and preseason.

              Any chance the Colts take back Dominic Rhodes?

                John Clayton says they might if the price is right ... but I read it as more speculation from him, than anything substantial. I remember Dom Rhodes, just because Kenton Keith makes Dom Rhodes looks good doesn't mean Dom Rhodes is very good. He did his best coming off the bench, when starter Joseph Addai and the offense worn down opposing defenses a bit, in a Marion Barber role. High energy/fresh legs sort of thing, and I think he could/can still do that if the team did re-sign him. But I don't miss the guy being a servicable guy who will occassionally put the ball on the ground.

                And I'd rather go with a tough, young runner like Simpson, who is very much like Rhodes, in the 5-9/215 mold with speed and can break some arm tackles running forward. Plus Simpson might be a kickoff return option, Polian couldn't help but mention him as a possibility there in today's presser.

                But if a guy signs a cheap deal wanting to play with a contender, I can't say I wouldn't consider it.

                Although honestly, I'd rather sign Rosie Colvin. I really hope the Colts sign him. And I'd love for Booger McFarland to heal up fully and the Colts sign him back, at a cheaper price.

                  I think if that would be the final roster for us this year that we would have more on the field talent than what we had in 2006. As for Dom, he was a great role player, but I'd rather see some new guys in at backup RB.

                      Not much different to the 2 above, and obviously I stole Geo's format and just edited it a little to include who I wanted to.

                        I hope Charlie Johnson is released. I know he's athletic, but his strength is well below-average for NFL OL.

                        We now have several talented OLs that deserve a roster space more then Johnson.

                          I hope he is as well, but he's stuck around this long, I think he'll find a way onto the roster, maybe just for his versatility.

                            The team knows he's awful at tackle, given how much they talk about him at guard. Granted he might be one of the softer RGs in the league, but then that wouldn't be any different than having Jake Scott before. Johnson has experience at both tackle spots, which could help the roster, and I think he might have been injured last year so let's hope he's much better this season.

                            I hope Corey Hilliard beats him out, I think he has a better chance to get it done at RG and RT.

                              I also hope that Federkeil makes the team.

                              He's one of the most athletic OLs on our roster (played as DE in CFL).
