Surprised about Nevis, D Jones, and maybe Asante, but otherwise no surprises
Not happy at all to lose Nevis. Shocked David Reed made it since he had a concussion. I expect him to be replaced before week 1. Also, should have cut Lefeged or Brown and kept Asante.
Happy for Caesar, Whalen, and Howell.
Stop quoting people I have on ignore!
Reed will probably get cut within the week i bet we pick up a receiver from the wavier wire
Counting down the days untill DJ Augustin's contract expires.
we get 7 practice squad spots right? not sure on the criteria to qualify for it but I imagine they try and stick Harnish, Ijalana, Adongo, Asante, and Jones on it. Nevis would be nice but I imagine someone will pick him up on their active roster, guy can play just not a fit here.
I fail to see what they see in Harnish just as i failed to see what was special about Sorghi and Painter. I don't care that he could be on the PS. There are better 3rd string QBs out there.
Nevis and Ilajana were always hurt so I understand those cuts.
How many Polian guys are left on the team? It seems that Grigson is trying to weed them out and with good reason! LOL
From Chappell's twitter .........
Wow. THAT'S an overhaul.Only colts from SB loss to Saints: Wayne, Mathis, Bethea, Vinatieri, Brown, Moala, McAfee. And that SB was after '09 season.
Nevis is a good player. He fits a 4-3 scheme better, but he plays hard and seemed to make plays when given the opportunity. I'd rather have him than R. Matthews or Moala.
No one else really suprised me besides Asante.

I was a little surprised they kept both Reitz and Linkenbach. I know they kept them for their experience and versatility. But I thought they might keep only one of them along with a young developmental OT.
I would have kept Nevis over Mathews, and Asante over Lefeged, but the rest is probably ok. I would think that Reed should be gone (I hope)
Heavy on LBs and RBs. Not complaining/criticizing, as there was depth of talent there. Plus, imagine we'll see (hopefully) some solid ST play out of some from those groups. Also imagine we're still looking for another WR and/or OL depth should there be something we like out there.
I'd rather die standing up than live on my knees.
Denver cut Ryan Lilja, sign him right now
Titans TE Jack Doyle claimed, Kerwynn Williams waived, Adongo, Thomas Austin, Harnish, Jones, McNary, Price to the practice squad. Doyle's an Indy native that went to Cathedral.
Chargers picked up Nevis
I actually liked how Kerwynn Williams played, especially that last game. Too bad.
Looks like Chargers are building a Colts d-line
I know this is about the Colts cuts and pickups, but did anyone else catch that the Brown have made it out of waiver Sunday without a place kicker on their roster? What the hell?
the Jets claimed Ijalana
