Without fail, on the day after teams are required to have their active rosters at 53 players, people are always interested in players who used to wear the horseshoe who were cut by other teams. Their interested perks up even more when the players still have something to offer. Below is a list of former Colts were were given pink slips yesterday by other teams. Some can still play in this league, and would offer an upgrade over players currently active on Indy's 53.
- Quinn Pitcock, cut by Seahawks
- Tyjuan Hagler, cut by Seahawks
- Darrell Reid, cut by Broncos
- Raheem Brock, cut by Titans
- Jamie Petrowski, cut by Panthers
- T.J. Rushing, cut by Lions
- Michael Toudouze, cut by Titans
Of this group, both Pitcock and Reid would add something to this team that is missing. Right now, Antonio Johnson has no back-up at DT. Pitcock played that position for Indy three years ago, before his addiction to Call of Duty forced him to quit football. Darrell Reid is a special teams ace. I'd love to have him back.
Other news: Brandon Stokley was not cut by the Broncos. He was placed on IR. I think Stoke's career is finished, or (at least) it should be.
