Colts Waive A Bunch Of Players You've Never Heard Of

The Indianapolis Colts today placed three players on the waived-injured list (basically, they're waived). These players include tight end Rob Myers, wide receiver Kole Heckendorf, and offensive tackle James Williams.

With the three free roster spots, the team also signed free agent linebacker Vuna Tuihalamaka and claimed tight end Michael Matthews off of waivers from the Buffalo Bills.

By my count, and based off the recently released depth chart (they finally updated the website, and it doesn't have the updated roster moves), the Colts are at 88 players. They are allowed to carry 90 during preseason.

In other news, via John Clayton:

Interest in Raiders T Langston Walker is picking up. He's being pursued by teams with young Ts and could leave the Raiders within days.

No confirmation yet on if the Colts are one of these teams, but they certainly fit the 'teams with young Ts' criteria.

And for those of you wondering why the Colts aren't using their extra roster spots to sign Pat Williams or Darren Sharper, consider this: Both Sharper and Williams are in their late-30s. What benefit is there to put them through training camp and preseason. They both know the Tampa-2 scheme because both have played in it. If the Colts were to sign one or both of these guys, it would be after the final series of cuts.

And in Williams case, he'll likely be suspended the first four games of the regular season anyway.
