In preparation to host the Miami Dolphins this Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium the Colts have made some roster moves. First, they released veteran RB Mewelde Moore and waived ex-Philadelphia Eagle NT Antonio Dixon. To take their spots on the 53-man roster, the Colts signed CB Marshay Green and FB Robert Hughes who were on the practice squad. They also have signed speedy CB Teddy Williams for one of the openings on their 8-man practice roster.
After the jump, we’ll take a peek at what these moves might say for the team.
Signing Mewelde Moore over the summer made a ton of sense for a young team who could use some more veterans sprinkled in, here and there. Moore seemed to be the perfect fit. As a former Steeler he knew Bruce Arians’ offense and could teach the young running backs as a player-coach. When he made the team he was expected to take the 3rd-down back role and flourish as Andrew Luck’s personal protector on passing downs.
Well, Moore was underwhelming in that role.
