This is another early guess as to what the 53-man roster will be for Week One. Keep in mind, for these guesses, I'm tossing out there what I think the 53 should be, not what I think Chris Polian will do. Trying to guess what the Polians will do is an exercise in futility. It will also drive you insane and make you hate the cruel game that is life.
Last week's guess is here.
If you agree, disagree, or partly agree or disagree with a few tweaks, comment away. For now, here's another very early guess as to the 2011 Colts 53 man roster.
RG: Kyle DeVan
Defense after jump...
FS: Antoine Bethea, Free Agent****
P: Pat McAfee
Kick return is Devin Moore. Punt returns are Free Agent WR.
*Someone like T.J. Houshmandzadeh here.
**I still think a veteran nose tackle is needed. Last year, the Colts entered Week One with only one nose tackle listed. It was disaster. If they do that again those year, the Texans will clobber them, again.
***I don't know if the Colts have seen anyone they like so far at FS. I know I haven't. Thus, after cutdown day, the Colts sign a vet here.
Other notes are Curtis Painter and Mike Pollak cut. This probably won't happen because pride and ego often factor into the roster than objective evaluation, but I can dream. Painter and Pollak do not deserve roster spots. They are bad football players, and anyone who argues otherwise is likely on the Colts payroll.
I think Adrian Moten might have unseated Cody Glenn.
I think the Colts will now re-sign Kelvin Hayden.
