Tyler Brayton opted to sign with the Carolina Panthers:
"(It was) very hard to turn down the Colts.''
Brayton, 28, would have served as the third end behind starters Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis.
And here I was getting my hopes up that the Colts would actually sign a real live free agent. Oh well. I still hold out hope for Warrick Dunn, or maybe even Joey Harrington, who was just cut by the Falcons. I just want to feel the same excitement Jets and Browns fans are feeling now. Free agency is like when a stripper smiles at you while she gyrates up against a stage pole. The smile promises something, but you're not sure what. And in the end, you pay a lot of money looking to fulfill that promise, only to find out that what you thought the smile meant was not what was intended.
You will now excuse me as I hide from my girlfriend.
