    No doubt, this should really help him keep up with the plays and the offense.
    Is it preseason yet?

    Top pick, Colts agree to 5-year contract

    By Mike Chappell

    The agent for running back Joseph Addai was driven by two objectives as he and the Indianapolis Colts constructed the rookie's lucrative contract.


    Each was achieved Saturday evening, enabling Addai, the 30th overall pick in the draft, to report today with his teammates to Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute for the start of training camp.

    "It was important to get the right contract completed before training camp,'' Ian Greengross said. "Every day of camp is important. "But also, you only have one shot at being a first-round draft pick. You have to make sure the contract is right for Joseph. It has to work both ways.''
    It did, according to Greengross.

    Addai agreed to a five-year, $11.2 million contract that includes $4.76 million in guaranteed bonuses. The business side completed, Addai can get down to the business of helping replace Edgerrin James as the Colts' No. 1 running back. He will vie for playing time with veteran backup Dominic Rhodes.


    Cornerback Tim Jennings, the team's second-round pick, and offensive tackle Charlie Johnson, a sixth-rounder, also will be on hand today after agreeing to four-year contracts. Their agents confirmed the deals, but would not provide financial terms.

    Although agents for the remaining three unsigned draft picks did not return phone calls Saturday, there is a good chance all will have agreed to contracts in time to report this afternoon. That trio consists of linebacker Freddie Keiaho (third round), safety Antoine Bethea (sixth round) and cornerback T.J. Rushing (seventh round).

    Freitas released

    The team has released Makoa Freitas. The backup tackle missed the 2005 season with a foot injury.

    I only hope our RB duo is good enough this year that we won't miss Edge too much and it doesn't screw up our Super Bowl possibility.....

    Addai will be good, but not "better than Edge" good. I don't think the offense is going to drop dead without Edge though, and I think Addai could really tear up on catches out of the backfield.

    You do realize that his numbers post better than most HOFer's already, don't you?

    Edge is a very special back, that will be in Canton. I think Addai will be good, but Hall good? There's no way of knowing.
