Thomas is horrible but with Freeney needing a rest and Dawson hurting as well I guess it makes sense.

Looks like Freeney and Dawson will play this Sunday vs the Titans. Thomas was waived today along with DB Antony Madison.

I wonder who they will add to the team to take up those roster spots?

According to rotoworld, Dom is tried out for the team today. Or maybe they'll bring Hart back onto the roster.

They are looking at Dominic Rhodes and some random Quarterback. There is a rumour doing the rounds that they may bring back Keiwan Ratliff, who was cut by the Steelers last week.

I would welcome back Ratliff. He did surprisingly well as a starter given that he was out of football and didn't have experience in the Colts defense.

As for Rhodes, I don't really understand what he would add to the offense. Unless Brown is more hurt than we know.

Default They signed Hart to the squad from the PS

They brought back Hart to the squad from the PS as a 4th RB. Also, signed this PS guy named Erwin Baldwin that is a pass rush DE (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/foo...rs/58108.html), a no name guy from our own PS (he played at Michigan State).

I do frankly think DB's injury is not fully healed and it may end up leading to surgery. No other reason to try another RB or activate another RB especially when we have not clinched AFC home field yet.

Dom must have shown them that he has lost that step, never made a huge difference than a banged up Addai last year, and DB is a more explosive version of Dom, so it never made sense unless they wanted him to do return duties exclusively to give Simpson more carries.

The other thing I do not understand is if Marcus Howard was drafted to be a pass rush specialist from a good conference and he had bulked up a bit to be like Robert Mathis in the offseason, with a 4.4 speed, why not bring Marcus Howard back? I just do not understand this DE move. If they were going to have Freeney play about 80% of the snaps this weekend and have this pass rush specialist to help, why not bring someone who is faster and does the pass rushing exclusively well and has played enough in our system?

Couldn't agree with you more. Howard would be much better than brining back Thomas and then dumping him twice. This really stumps me why Howard wasn't given a shot to be on the roster this year. We have no real pass rushing threat behind Free and Mathis. Howard could be #3 pretty easily.

Marcus Howard was cut by the team and hasn't even been mentioned in regards to signing for other teams since the end of September. Obviously there is an issue there that hasn't been reported to the Press.

He was tried out by the Texans first, then the Eagles and the Steelers next but no one signed him so far.

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/....html&team=121

I just hope the Colts are the 4th team to try him out again?:)

I still think he would provide much needed relief to a banged up Freeney in obvious pass downs. The option now is possibly Freeney aggravating his abdomen/hip injury that he is having now and missing more time down the road or Freeney given a huge break of 2 or 3 games and us not knowing how effective he will be if he comes back just for the playoffs. It does not help that Keyunta Dawson is banged up too. Just look at the pass rush down the middle in the Pats', Ravens', and Texans' game. We are now 20th in pass yards allowed in the league, can't blame it all on the absence of Kelvin Hayden, the D-line is obviously not being effective. Plus, Mookie and Muir hold the fort for running plays but are not athletic enough to be disruptive enough for passing plays. O-lines like the Pats and Chargers will eat us alive if they have a cushy pocket in the playoffs.

Having the extra pass rush specialist like Marcus Howard will only help in the long term, IMO. I will give this new guy Ervin Baldwin a chance but my gut tells me Howard would be much better in that specialist role and maybe was one of the mistakes of the 53 man roster cut moves announced that the staff does not want to accept.

I like that he is not a tweener and that he has played as a DE in a league where you have to cover more ground laterally (since CFL fields are wider). My expectations from him are a special teamer at first and a possible 3rd pass rusher from the DE position (Dawson or Baldwin are not getting it done) to give Freeney or Mathis a breather.

I think Baldwin might turn out ok for the Colts. I doubt this new guy will do anything outside of STs. The goal of course is to not have any DE other than Mathis, Freeney, or occasionally Brock on the field.

A year later than most of actually wanted but the Colts have signed Mitch King and Gerald Cadogan to future contracts for next season. They have also signed Dudley Guice, a Receiver and Devin Moore, a Running Back.

Ha.

I was probably the biggest supporter of us getting King and Cadogan was one of my favorite prospects on Penn State (my favorite college team).

Seriously, King was a MONSTER in college. He single-handedly ruined Penn State's perfect season by dominating current Philadelphia Eagle AQ Shipley and current New England Patriot Rich Ohrnberger. He just lived in the backfield throughout that game and really throughout his career.

I really hope he works out for us. I kind of enjoy it when I'm right about certain prospects. :)


Although, unfortunately, the last time I made the right call about a prospect it was Maurice Jones-Drew and he wound up with a division rival.

Mitch King! Better late than never I guess. I'm not so sure on Cadogan but I like taking the chance, we need OL help badly.

I think King could be the DT we need to get consistent penetration in the middle of the pocket. Muir and AJ at NT and Foster and King at UT with Moala playing both positions gives us a pretty decent rotation IMO.

King is similar to Foster. He's kind of DE/DT tweener. He could play as a DT on passing downs and DE on rushing downs.

As far as Cadogan, he fits the mold of O-linemen that we seem to always target. He is athletic and is a good pass-blocker, but his power, despite his size (6'-5" 315), is limited. He was never a road-grader in college and I doubt that he will be in the pros also. But who knows, maybe he too will thrive in our system.

Polian has a long history of finding good players that other teams gave up on (Lilja, Muir, Johnson, Saturday, Brock just to name a few), perhaps these guys will work out also.

That's what I mean though. The draft articles I've read on him make him sound like a less athletic Tony Ugoh. Polian himself has admitted his ability to assess OL talent is lacking.

This was brought up on another board but I figured I'd bring it up here. Jared Gaither was given a 1st round tender by the Ravens. I know Polian won't do anything there but it's fun to think about.

Also, Kirk Morrison got a 3rd from the Raiders.

Brock being cut isn't a big surprise. He asked to be cut and he's due $3.79 Million in 2010 and his play really declined (both against the run where Robert Mathis really stepped up and in the pass where he was ineffective all season).

A big surprise is not tendering Hagler. Are his injury concerns that big? Or did they see enough from Wheeler?

I am picking up scraps of news that Brackett will sign a 5 year $30 Million, with $16 Million guarranteed.

Also, Melvin Bullitt, Charlie Johnson, Mookie and Dan Muir all got 2nd Round tenders, while Antoine Bethea was giving a 1st Round tender.

In Baseball the object is to go home and be safe.

Signing Brackett and Bethea to extensions should be the top priority.

Both are very important players that play key positions on our D.

Plus it isn't easy to replace quality every-down MLB and a good FS.
