No Trade Deadline Deal For Colts

Their flawed wide receiving corp is still just that.

Dilip Vishwanat

The NFL’s 4:00 p.m. EST trade deadline came and went, and just like everyone else, the Indianapolis Colts didn’t make a move.

Well, OK, the Patriots might have made a last minute move to acquire defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga and a 2014 sixth-round draft pick from the Eagles in exchange for a 2014 fifth-round draft pick.

But, really? That’s it? That’s all the noise?

Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, and Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez were all kept. Even a last minute effort by the Broncos to acquire Jared Allen from the Vikings fell through.

For the Colts, they are still sitting at 52 active players. This means either a player will get promoted from the practice squad soon, or a veteran will be signed from the free agent market. It also means that they are indeed content with a wide receiving corps consisting of Darrius Heyward-Bey, T.Y. Hilton, David Reed, LaVon Brazill, and Griff Whalen.

Excuse me if I’m not as excited about that as some others might be.
