The Colts waived seven players yesterday, according to a league source who spoke with Scouts.com. Included in the cuts was Notre Dame rookie DT Pat Kuntz, a fan favorite for his personality and ties to the state of Indiana. Also cut were S Brannon Condren, QB Chris Crane, CB Brandon Foster, CB Brandon Harrison, G Cornelius Lewis, and LB Tyrell Sales.
This is the second time the Colts have cut Brandon Condren, and the oddity about cutting him now was the Colts.com website posted an article on Condren just two days ago. The article (written by John Oesher) states:
Safety Condren Anxious to Take Full Advantage of Second Chance with Colts
INDIANAPOLIS – Brannon Condren said he has learned from his past.
That, he said, means learning from his mistakes and he said he doesn't mind acknowledging a mistake or two from his first stint with the Colts. He said he could have worked a touch harder.
He could have been a bit more prepared.
Condren said it wasn't that he was unprepared last offseason, and it wasn't that he didn't work hard. But Condren said there were areas on which he could have improved.
This offseason, he said, he wants to make those improvements.
I guess Condren won't be getting that second chance after all.
Also, just FYI: The Colts have seven drafted rookies stil floating out there. These cuts were likely made to make room for those rookies, who hopefully will get signed soon.
