Yesterday, we wrote that Colts back-up quarterback against the looked nothing short of piss poor awfulBuffalo Bills in the team's second preseason game of 2010. It seems Colts brass agreed with our assessment of Hiller's quarterbacking skills.
The Colts waived Hiller today, according to Mike Chappell at the Indy Star. They then used his open roster spot, along with the one for the recently IRed Jordan Hemby, to sign running back Allen Patrick and defensive back Glenn Sharpe.
Patrick is a former-seventh round pick in 2008 of the Baltimore Ravens. He's bounced around several teams between then and now. The 6'1, 200 pounder played his college ball at Oklahoma along with current Colts tight end Brody Eldridge. Patrick was Adrian Peterson's back-up at O.U. He ran for 1,900 yards and 14 touchdowns in four years there.
Glenn Sharpe was a collegiate free agent in 2008 from The U. (Miami). This should make Reggie Wayne and Javarris James happy. Sharpe was signed by the Falcons but eventually found his way to the New Orleans Saints. Just like Marlon Favorite, Sharpe won a Super Bowl ring as a practice squad member of the 2009 Saints who defeated the Colts in Super Bowl 44. Sharpe is mostly known for being the DB involved in the delayed pass interference call in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl between Miami and Ohio State.
With Allen Patrick signed, you have to wonder if Mike Hart's injury is not more severe than initially thought. Hart did not play Thursday in Toronto against the Bills.
