Well, so much for Tom Santi getting an opportunity to challenge Brody Eldridge, Gijon Robinson, or Jacob Tamme for one of the reserve tight end spots. Santi was placed on the waived-injured list today. This means that the Colts are releasing Santi even though he is injured. This likely means the team and Santi came to come kind of settlement because teams are not allowed to just simply waive injured players.
At least one former NFL scout had high hopes for Santi this season. So did we. But, as was his problem in 2008 and 2009, he just cannot stay healthy. We hope he can heal up and continue his football career. He still offers some good potential.
