The Colts Authority:
After Dallas Clark was released and Jacob Tamme departed in free agency the tight end has been moving up the team needs chart. The team started to address that today by signing former Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Kyle Miller.
Don't too excited folks. Miller couldn't make the final roster for the Jaguars who were so hard up for anyone with receiving skills that they actually signed Greg Cowan at one point. OK, I made the last part up but Greg certainly would have been competitive with that group.

THANKS BUT NO THANKS
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted Tuesday morning that the team's request to hold a private workout for Robert Griffin III has been declined by the quarterback's agent.
The Colts seemingly are incredibly interested in Robert Griffin III in the upcoming draft or are at least doing their best to convince us they're interested.
Nate Dunlevy tackles this possibility with his usual deft touch:
Sorry, not buying it. If they were making a late-in-the-game push to go after Luck then that means they didn't have enough information back in March...
This won’t be the last report we hear from somoene that is apparently, “in the know.” But ESPN personality, and former Washingotn Post columnist Michael Wilbon was on the air with PTI colleague Tony Kornheiser and informed him that people that he has spoken with within the Indianapolis Colts organization have led him to believe that there is a real possiblity that the Heisman...
The Colts are adjusting to drastic changes as they go through their first week of workouts.
Among the new faces: general manager Ryan Grigson, coach Chuck Pagano and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians.
There's a new defense. The Colts will switch to the 3-4 that Pagano had success with in Baltimore.
There's a new attitude. The quiet Jim Caldwell has been replaced by the...
A lot has been said over the last few days about the Indianapolis Colts interest in Robert Griffin III, and now word is that he is refusing to meet with the team for a private workout, according to team owner Jim Irsay.
A Luck private workout 2day..we want 2b as thorough n disciplined n process of #1 pick..we wanted 2do private with RG3,but his agent said no

Nate is at it again and his time he's got a full seven round mock draft for the Colts including some names high on my list. I'm particularly fond of his second and third round picks although I doubt they both are available at those spots:
34th (second) - Coby Fleener, TE, Standford
Again, I've said my peace on this one, too. The Colts have obvious defensive needs,...
Coming to many folks’ surprise, the Indianapolis Colts have seriously been considering quarterback Robert Griffin III as the No. 1 overall pick over Andrew Luck. However, the search could now officially be over after RGII’s agent cleared the air.
The Colts held a private workout for Luck today, but they also asked Griffin. However, it was denied.
Earlier Kyle Rodriguez told us why subjective draft grades aren't such a good idea.
Nate Dunlevy chimed in with some interesting views of his own regarding this niche industry that springs up around this time:
Take this draft review of the Indianapolis Colts done by Pro Football Focus. The Colts had far fewer "draft points" to work with than any team in the league...
Robert Griffin III turned down the Colts' request for a private workout. In fact, he turned down all requests for private workouts and Adam Schefter has a few theories why Griffin was reluctant to show his wares again. First among those reasons Schefter proposes is that Griffin feels he's proved himself already. He also suggests perhaps Griffin simply prefers going to Washington...
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay claimed Tuesday that quarterback Robert Griffin III declined an invitation to work out privately for the team.
The statement from Irsay, if confirmed, appeared to cement the notion that the Colts will select former Stanford star Andrew Luck as their replacement for Peyton Manning.
Luck will work out for the Colts on Tuesday in Indianapolis, and...
My advice today for GMs is considerably more simple than the previous lessons: make the most of what you have today. Ryan Grigson: LISTEN UP!
The average tenure for a general manager with a team (excluding dictators Jerry Jones and Mike Brown) is 4.2 years. The median for GMs is 3 years. Coaches fare a bit worse with an average of 3.3 years and a mean of 2 years. In other words...
Looks like Drew Stanton just can’t catch a break.
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians wants the team to sign Byron Leftwich as the back-up quarterback to help out Andrew Luck (or Robert Griffin III) for next season as they prepare for their rookie year.
Arians used to be with the Steelers these past few years and worked with Leftwich...
It has been widely speculated that the Indianapolis Colts will draft Stanford’s Andrew Luck with the #1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft. After having released future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, Colts’ owner and social media star, Jim Irsay, has been hinting that the Colts are taking a serious look at drafting Baylor’s...Read the Rest...
