    I can see Brackett and Bullitt. But Clark and Addai? Addai can catch the ball out of the backfield and is one of the best blocking backs in football. What QB on earth couldn't use that? And Clark? Yeah he had a bad year, but man, how do you turn your back on handing a weapon like Clark to a young QB who will need him? Knowing that Wayne is likely to follow Peyton, I don't get either of these cuts.

    I agree, why not keep Addai and Clark? Why re-sign a 31-year-old Mathis if we're going for a youth movement?

    And now you know why Peyton Manning wasn't terribly interested in coming back. He knew the plan. Colts are starting over, and rightly so.

    Bullitt and Brackett were injury issues, Clark isn't worth the cap hit, Addai had nothing left in the tank...and Painter is Painter.

    No one is going to trade any assets for Clark he is way overpaid and is aging and not that good anymore.

    dwight freeney most likely will be hard to trade. My Bears are interested but I doubt they trade anything other than a really late pick(i wouldn't be surprised if they gamble that the Colts just cut him). His cap hit is enormous and he isnt worth what he is making at this point. He is still very good and will get a nice deal but a guy who is aging and runs himself out of run plays I wouldn't pay what the Colts are paying him.

    Not sure about that.. Brackett doesn't save you crap this year but the following years it will save us a lot.

    Colts released RB Joseph Addai.
    The team's Friday releases of Addai, MLB Gary Brackett, SS Melvin Bullitt, and TE Dallas Clark take the Colts off the hook for $14.83 million worth of 2012 base salaries. Per Brian McIntyre of Football Outsiders, however, the moves only save about $5 million in salary cap space. Addai can still pass protect and catch passes, but he lacks any hint of explosion in his lower body going on age 29. He's missed 12 games due to injury over the past two seasons. Mar 9 - 5:27 PM

    A team may trade for him just to keep other teams from competing and it really is like franchise tag at this point. His contract is 12 or 14 mill which is overpaying but its off the books in one year unlike if he was on the open market.

    but no joke Luck is going to have a terrible cast. His OL at Stanford IMO is better than what the Colts plan on putting out there.

    Luck had a great cast will be interesting to see how he does with bad WRs TEs and OL.

    When the casual fans jump off the bandwagon, they'll point to wide sweeping cuts of favorite players like these for their lapsing fandom.

    Of course, they'll suddenly forgive the Colts once they start winning again.

    I figure if you're going to start over with a brand new offense and defense, you might as well get players that fit.

    I knew Bracket would be gone regardless, Angererererer is younger, better and cheaper. Not surprised with Addai, after Brown really came on last season, finally.

    A little surprised with Clark, figured he would be a great target for Luck. Little surprised with Bullit, he's been solid and has not missed much time till last season, I didn't think he made that much money.

    He had bad WRs and mediocre TEs in college. Nothing new there. The line will be a downgrade relative to competition though.
