The Indianapolis Colts claimed offensive guard Zane Taylor off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles and waived offensive guard Matt Murphy on Friday. Taylor was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Jets in 2011. He also spent time in camp with the New York Jets, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Eagles practice squads that year. Taylor was a three-time All-Mountain West Conference selection as an offensive lineman at Utah and earned first-team honors as a senior. He started 38 games at center over his last three seasons. Taylor also earned academic all-conference honors on four occasions. Murphy was signed to the Colts practice squad early in the 2011 season, where he remained for the rest of the year.

Paul Kuharsky takes a hard look at the AFC South in an effort to rank the defenses. No shocker here--the Colts are in the basement:
4. Indianapolis Colts: The Colts might have the worst defense in the NFL this season. Their run defense was abysmal last season. Indianapolis has nowhere to go but up in this department and additions such as Cory Redding, Brandon McKinney and Josh...
1. How well will Andrew Luck and the new offense fair in year one of the post-Peyton era?
To be perfectly honest, the answer to this question will most likely be “not well.” Gone are Joseph Addai, Dallas Clark, and Jeff Saturday, 3 huge components of Peyton Manning’s success the past decade, not to mention Manning himself. Also out is wide receiver Pierre Garcon.
The Indianapolis Colts have cut tight end Brody Eldridge and brought in another quarterback.
Eldridge played two seasons in Indy after the Colts took him in the fifth round of the 2010 draft. In 27 games, he caught 14 passes for 84 yards but was primarily a blocker.
Indy took two tight ends in April -- Stanford's Coby Fleener in the second round and Clemson's Dwayne Allen...
QB Andrew Luck (Indianapolis)
Like Robert Griffin, Andrew Luck should be a solid QB1 with upside as a rookie. I expect him to have better passing numbers than either Newton or Griffin, but he won’t match either of their rushing numbers, which is why Griffin has the advantage over Luck in fantasy, at least for this year.
Projection: 4000 passing yards, 23 passing touchdowns, 14...
David Legree joined the Colts' cast of young quarterbacks, with Indianapolis signing the undrafted rookie out of Hampton University. He joins draft picks Andrew Luck (No. 1 overall) and Chandler Harnish (seventh round), along with veteran Drew Stanton on the Colts' roster. Legree originally attended Syracuse before transferring to Hampton after the 2008 season, and threw...

It's been awhile.
I'd like to apologize to our readers for my lack of writing over the last two weeks, where school and work have kept me swamped. Fortunately, from here on out, I'll be able to provide consistent content all summer, with a focus on statistical and video analysis.
In preparation for the summer, I'd like to let you know the type of studies I'...
According to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe, former Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark visited the New England Patriots on Tuesday.
Clark recently visited the Kansas City Chiefs as well. Some people question whether or not he can still play after fighting through multiple injuries over the past few seasons.
If Clark signs with the Patriots, he’d certainly...
The New England Patriots are not done making roster moves.
The Patriots signed rookie free agent Jon Opperud on Friday. Opperud, who stands at 6-foot-7 and 300 pounds, was a three-year starter at The University of Montana, first at left guard and then at left tackle. He originally signed with the Seattle Seahawks on Apr. 29 but was released sixteen days later.
