The truth is the Colts have been aging for years, when they cut Peyton Manning they basically said goodbye to being a 10 win team for the next 5 years. Can anyone say they're suprised they cut these guys too?
All of them were support players they resigned because their window was still open, once they cut Manning their window closed so they released high paid players to try to cut their rebuilding from 5 years to 3.
Needless to say, they're still in trouble. They don't have a very good RB, WR, TE or O-Line. They have a defense switching schemes. I doubt many offensive players are going to sign as FA's because they don't wanna play with a rookie QB, so they're looking at building in the draft, take into effect they're needing 3-4 Defensive guys, and there'es not enough picks to go around
