2010 Free Agency

According to the Associated Press, Indianapolis Colts' tight end Dallas Clark will be placed on the injured-reserve list with his wrist injury. This means the Pro-Bowl tight end will be out for the rest of the season. It was announced today that Clark decided to now have surgery. Clark hopes, and plans, to return for next season. Clark will end his season with 37 catches for 347 yards, so far ranking third on the team. Clark had 100 catches for 1,106 yards and ten touchdowns the previous season. The Colts signed Gijon Robinson two days ago. They have a bye week right now and plan to roll as they have the Houston Texans coming over at Lucas Oil Stadium in Week [...] Continue reading → | , , ,
The Indianapolis Colts continue to get hit by negative news. According to Mark J. Miller of Yahoo! Sports, running back Joseph Addai will be out several weeks with a hurt shoulder. However, this is considered a rumor. The news originally came from NFL.com. NFL.com has had a recent history of false news reported, like Bob Sanders career likely to be done. Addai played well with 17 carries [...] Continue reading → | , ,
According to the Associated Press, Indianapolis Colts’ tight end Dallas Clark will be out indefinitely with a hand/wrist injury that occurred during the team’s win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday Night, 27-24. The length of the Pro Bowler’s absence will be determined. “He’s being evaluated,” Colts coach Jim Caldwell said Wednesday when asked about Clark’s injury. Clark looks to get a second, also possibly a third, opinion on whether he can play or not. The decision for Clark will be made on Thursday. Surgery is a possible option for the tight end. The Colts signed tight end Gijon Robinson in the meantime, a player who was cut by the Colts earlier this [...] Continue reading → | , ,
Many of the Indianapolis Colts' playmakers could be ruled out in Sunday's match-up against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Running back Donald Brown was out all week with a knee injury, and is considered questionable. Joseph Addai is dealing with a hamstring injury, but was able to make it to the Wednesday and Thursday practices despite missing Friday's. Addai is questionable, too. Austin Collie, who is leading the league in receiving yards, could be questionable as well after dealing with a sore heel. Collie was coming off a game where he had 171 yards along with two touchdowns in a 27-13 win over the Denver Broncos. Pierre Garcon, who is ruled out for last week, hasn't practiced all week with a bad hamstring injury. Other players that are listed as questionable are left [...] Continue reading → | , , , , ,
From Adam Schefter: The Indianapolis Colts have not yet surrendered hope that Pro Bowl safety Bob Sanders will return later this season. But it's looking doubtful that Sanders will return to Indianapolis in 2011. For starters, Sanders' base salary balloons from $2.275 million this season to $5.5 million next season and $7 million in 2012. Beyond that, the Colts already have invested big money in another safety, Antoine Bethea, this offseason. Indianapolis is scheduled to pay Bethea $4.75 million next season and $5.2 million in 2012. The Colts' pay [...] Continue reading →
It feels really good to be going into this game 1-0. It really, really does. Can you imagine going to the East Coast 0-1? Forget that...can you imagine going to play in Atlanta as 0-1? In other words, 0-2 might be a strong possibility. But now, there's even a slight possibility of 2-0 (not to most NFL experts, but hang with me here). Let's face the stark reality though: Arizona is not favored to win this game. In fact, if the game were "simulated" 100 times, Arizona would probably win 10 or less. But that still means they can win. So what do the Birds need to do to upset the Falcons? 1. Derek Anderson Has To Be More Efficient If you put things in perspective, Anderson actually didn't do too badly against the Rams. For one, [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , ,
This is probably what the Indianapolis Colts were waiting over. Who would be the National Football League's highest-paid player? Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. The Colts have been talking about such a deal to No. 18 since the week of the Super Bowl versus the New Orleans Saints back in February. However, nothing has gone through yet. This is very smart on the Colts' part. They are waiting for the New England Patriots to pull the trigger first on Brady. And they did. Brady signed a four-year extension worth $72 million with over $48 million guaranteed. With this, the Colts know what amount of money Manning will get in his new contract. He is entering the final year of his seven-year $99 million deal. Bob Kraft liked what he did and glad Brady will be with the Pats for four [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , ,
Reggie Wayne is happy for the latest wide receivers to get paid like Andre Johnson and Miles Austin. He is also happy that disgruntled teammate Antoine Bethea got the contract he got during the off-season. But he is not happy with his contract and wants to be with the happy bunch. The Indianapolis Colts' Pro-Bowl wide receiver wants to turn that frown upside down. Wayne congratulated Johnson. "This offseason we were talking about contracts," Wayne said. "Once he got his done, I texted him 'congratulations,' and the first thing he asked me was, 'So what's up with yours? What are you going to do?' I texted him 'absolutely nothing.' At least somebody's getting paid. I'd also like to send congratulations out to Miles Austin. He got paid." Johnson was agreed towards a [...] Continue reading →
SEATTLE- Rex Ryan, Hard Knocks, and Darrell Revis' contract are just some of the examples of the New York Jets hype heading into 2010. With Rex Ryan ultimately being at the center of the Jets self-inflicted hype it brings back a recent memory some 2,000 miles away. Tucked away in the farthest corner of the U.S sits Seattle Washington, known for grunge, and not a lot of recent success in the sports section. For the Seahawks they moved "Carrollwood" up north and now there's more people trying to figure out who's actually on the roster than on how the team will do this upcoming season. However right next to Qwest Field is Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners and for those who live in Seattle "The house that Griffey built". The Seattle Mariners have been one of if not the most [...] Continue reading → | , , , , ,
From Associated Press: Last year, Tony Ugoh lost his starting job. On Wednesday, he was simply out of a job. The offensive lineman the Colts once projected as its left tackle of the future was placed on the waived-injured list after missing practice with an undisclosed foot injury. To take his spot, the Colts claimed another offensive lineman, Joe Reitz, off waivers from Miami. Colts players and coach Jim Caldwell were not available after practice to comment on the move, but are expected to talk about it Thursday. This means that Charlie Johnson will be taking over fully now and will be the man [...] Continue reading →
