    Default The Official Non-Official Offseason Thread (2007)

    Instead of having a bunch of short threads about the boring off season, why not have a long winded one instead?

    ROSTER MOVES ANNOUNCED

    By John Oehser - Colts.com

    Toudouze, Betts among Practice Squad Players Re-Signed by Colts
    INDIANAPOLIS - The off-season for the Super Bowl XLI champions is well under way.

    On Wednesday afternoon, the Colts announced their first series of roster moves for the 2007 off-season, moves that included the re-signing of offensive tackle Michael Toudouze and quarterback Josh Betts from the practice squad.

    Toudouze, a fifth-round selection in the 2006 NFL Draft from the Texas Christian University, spent this past season on the Colts' practice squad. Betts, who also spent the season on the practice squad, was signed as an undrafted free agent from Miami-Ohio.

    Also re-signed from the practice squad:

    Wide receiver Devin Aromashodu, center
    Albert Bimper, defensive back Tanard Davis and fullback Luke Lawton.

    The Colts also signed the following free agents and allocated them to NFL Europe:

    Offensive guard Matt Ulrich, quarterback Mike McGann, wide receiver Brian Hare, defensive tackle Tom Johnson and kicker Shane Andrus.

    Ulrich played five games for the Colts each of the past two seasons.

    The following players have been signed as future free agents:

    Wide receiver Kevin McMahan (Maine), running back Kenton Keith (New Mexico State), offensive guard Sam Wilder (Colorado), defensive end Jeff Charleston (Utah State), linebacker Brandon Hoyte (Notre Dame), defensive back Scott Ware (Southern California) and defensive back Trevis Coley (Southern Mississippi).

    Indianapolis Colts
    Cap room: $200,000
    The Colts won't have room to be a player in free agency, but they should do enough to keep this team together. They can restructure Peyton Manning's contract and save about $8 million in cap room. They can cut wide receiver Brandon Stokley and defensive tackle Corey Simon. Defensive end Dwight Freeney will either be franchised or get a new contract. The big decision involves linebacker Cato June. The Colts lost linebackers Marcus Washington, Mike Peterson and David Thornton over the past few years and the defense suffered with their departures. June may not be as good as those three players, but he is a playmaker the Colts would like to keep. Expect the Colts to look for larger defensive line backups who will allow them to put some bigger packages together against power running teams. The Colts have a chance to repeat. It's not out of the question for them to be able to re-sign halfback Dominic Rhodes. They will lose safety Mike Doss, but that is intentional. Manning vows to get better as a quarterback and that is scary for the rest of the league.

    Since this is the offseason thread here's a shot of Peyton's little brother that's kind of interesting.

    Something to keep in mind when it comes to resigning Cato or Morris...

    Although LB Freddie Keiaho hasn’t gotten nearly as much recognition as fellow rookies Joseph Addai and Antoine Bethea this season, the Colts couldn’t be more excited about the third-round pick out of San Diego State. “He’s going to have a great career in this league,” Colts LB coach Mark Murphy told PFW at the Super Bowl. “He’s exactly the kind of guy we want. He’s not a real big guy, but he’s very bright, very explosive. And he understands the game. He’ll be around for a while. I’ll probably be in an old folks’ home watching him play for a number of years. He runs with what we like to call ‘being chased speed.’ When you time a guy, he runs at X speed, but when a guy is chasing him, he runs at X-plus speed.” Team sources have been telling PFW all season that Keiaho has a lot of the same qualities as S Bob Sanders. “That’s a great analogy,” Murphy said. “And also like Bob, Freddie’s a quality guy.”

    ^Indeed. I think Freddie is going to be playing a lot for us soon, but I would still hope we can re-sign Cato and get Morris back on a small contract. Having Morris around would help to ease Freddie in.

    Though honestly, I'm not sure we should keep either Morris or June if it means overpaying. I love Cato, but he does get lit up against the run sometimes.

    I've learned two things in this thread.

    1.) Eli not only makes bad decisions on the field, but off them too. He drinks MGD!!! That's just wrong on so many levels.
    2.) Dun has better taste in beer, but you'd think someone with his money would atleast step up and drink straight Bud instead of Bud Light.

    March 11, 2007 -- Despite reports that the Giants are expecting to meet this week with linebacker Cato June, no visit has been scheduled and thus far, there's been little interest by the Giants in the unrestricted free agent from the Colts.

    The Giants have make contact with June's agent, but no talks of any substance have taken place. Clearly, if the Giants have any desire to sign June to bolster their depleted linebacker corps, they are willing to wait to see how whatever market there is for June develops.

    Although June has not made any visits thus far in free agency, there is interest in him around the league and a source said he should be signed in the next seven days.
