If football fans in Indianapolis were starting to wonder if there team was going to have anyone on it next year (besides Reggie Wayne and Andrew Luck), they can assured that it will at least two other players.

For weeks the Colts have made the news for the players it was losing, but on Friday they actually added a couple, quarterback Drew Stanton and wide receiver Donnie Avery.

Stanton came over in a trade with the New York Jets. He had lost the desire to be in the Big Apple after being told he was going to be the back-up only to watch the Jets bring in Tim Tebow. Since being drafted by the Detroit Lions in 2007 he has appeared in 13 games, completed 55.6 percent of his passes, and thrown nine interceptions to only five touchdowns.

Donnie Avery was a second round pick for the St. Louis Rams in 2008. In two seasons he pulled in 100 catches for 1263 yards and eight touchdowns. He lost the entire 2010 season to injury, and only recorded three catches in eight games for the Tennessee Titans last season.
