The Colts traded Gerome Sapp back to the team that first drafted him: the Baltimore Ravens. Indy traded Sapp to the Rat Birds for a conditional 7th round pick in the 2007 draft.

In other news, it seems Robert Mathis's contract is worth $30 million bucks, with $12 million guaranteed, an $8.1 million signing bonus, a $3.9 million roster bonus due next March, and a partridge in a pear tree.
