Colts Claim Brandstater Off Waivers From Denver

Adam Schefter tweeted an hour ago that the Colts have picked QB Tom Brandstater off waivers from Denver.  There's already a crowded field lining up to back up Manning... let's see what happens.

Brandstater was cut from the Broncos last week, after he couldn't get enough reps behind Kyle Orton, Brady Quinn and newcomer Tim Tebow.  This guy is really interesting to me because (a) he's a Californian, and (b) he is HUGE!  At 6'5" and 225 pounds, I think he is the biggest QB not named Peyton Manning on the Colts roster.

A 2009 6th round pick out of Fresno State, Brandstater did not see action last year.
