As the NFL Draft gets closer and closer (thankfully), there are still plenty of free agents on the street looking for a job.  One such player is former Colts cornerback Greg Toler.

He had a visit with the Miami Dolphins a couple of weeks ago, but other than that it has been pretty silent for the corner.  Today, however, he is visiting with the Washington Redskinsaccording to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.  Rapoport notes that Washington's new linebackers coach is Greg Manusky, the former Colts defensive coordinator who coached Toler in Indianapolis.

Signed as a free agent in the Colts' disappointing 2013 offseason, Toler spent three seasons with the Colts after three seasons with the Arizona Cardinals (where he played in 38 games and started 15).  He played in 34 games and started 32 of them, recording 128 tackles, a sack, two forced fumbles, 31 passes defensed, and three interceptions.  Toler was a three-year starter for the Colts but didn't play particularly well.  There were times where he filled the role the Colts needed him to fill, but more often than that he was struggling with injuries or getting beat in coverage.

The Colts opted to let him walk this offseason, and instead they signed Patrick Robinson to take his place.  The Colts have Vontae Davis and Robinson as their starting corners now, while D'Joun Smith and Darius Butler will compete for the slot cornerback job and provide depth.  We still could see the Colts add a corner in the draft, but the point is that they didn't need to re-sign Greg Toler, and it doesn't seem like they had much of an interest to either.  He's making some free agent visits now, so we'll see if a signing comes at some point soon.
