Greetings from the road!
I'm on a road trip with friends across country, and today I'm chilling somewhere in northern Indiana, on my way to Minneapolis. People who are not chilling are NFL players sitting on the roster bubble. With preseason over (yay!!!!), all NFL teams are required to trim their rosters from 75 to 53 by 9:00 p.m. ET today.
I haven't posted my final roster "guesstimate" yet, but Colts players who are definitely on the bubble are Korey Lindsey, Andre Smith, and Darren Evans, just to name a few.
The Colts have the priority claim for all released players. This means they get first dibs on players released by other teams. Look for the Colts to shore up corner, offensive lineman, and wide receiver depth by putting in waivers claims.
Names of some players I'm hearing MAY get cut: LBer Aaron Curry and CB Brandon Boykin.
It should be interesting to see who Ryan Grigson picks off the wire. Keep it here to get the latest info.
UPDATE: Colts have released 13 year Long Snapper Justin Snow, according to Mike Chappell of the Indy Star:
