It's official: Three Colts linebackers have names that seem too funny and too awesome to be true. They are, Tim Fugger, Larry Lumpkin, and the tackling machine known as Pat Angerer.

Lumpkin joins the Colts by way of a free agent deal after going undrafted in Thursday's supplemental draft. Josh Gordon was the most promising prospect in the supplement draft, but Lumpkin received his fair share of attention, as well.

Lumpkin ran for several NFL teams at his high school, clocking in at 4.69 and 4.72 in the 40. Lumpkin was a former Bulldog (Alabama A&M), but transferred to Carson-Newman last season. During his lone season with the Eagles, Lumpkin racked up 96 tackles (10 for losses).

In other news, I've been told that Fugger has officially dubbed his special move "The Fugger Upper." Lumpkin still has yet to christen his own special move, but we're hearing that he's leaning towards keeping it simple and blunt: "The Lumper."

Pat Angerer is just, well, angry. And really good.
