The Colts released quarterback David Legree yesterday, and replaced him on the roster with free agent running back Mewelde Moore.
Legree was signed in late May as a free agent when the Colts released tight end Brody Eldridge. Legree was nothing more than a camp arm, filling in as Luck was in school and Mr. Irrelevant Chandler Harnish nursed an injury.
Moore, on the other hand...
The 2012 Colts' offensive line is going to be a completely different from the patch-up job the Colts have had over the last few years.
It has been anyone's guess who will man the guard spots, with Anthony Castonzo, Samson Satele, and Winston Justice all seemingly entrenched in their respective spots. According to a new report from the good folks at Pro Football Weekly...
Yesterday, the Colts cut QB David Legree and signed RB Mewelde Moore. Today, the Colts announced the release of another UDFA quarterback, Trevor Vittatoe.
This leaves the Colts with Andrew Luck, Drew Stanton, and Chandler Harnish at the quarterback position. The Colts will likely carry three quarterbacks into the season, since they no longer have ironman Peyton Manning at the helm...
Andrew Luck is keeping his focus on football.
He'll let others worry about his new contract.
The No. 1 overall draft pick says that even though he cannot attend training camp until he signs a deal, he is not worried about the lack of one becoming an impediment for reporting to training camp. The Colts report to Anderson University, an NCAA Division III school about 30 miles...
Before the new collective bargaining agreement put in place after the lockout ended last year, you would usually see the top pick in the draft sign his deal and then we would work our way down after the market had been set. But with the new deal in place, we’re seeing that things are going to be quite different.
17 of the first 32 picks in the draft have come to terms or signed...
Out with the old and in with the new is the strategy with the rebuilding Colts (2006 Super Bowl win is a distant memory). First ballot hall of fame QB Peyton Manning will be under center in Denver (joined by former colt TE Jacob Tamme), TE Dallas Clark is in Tampa and WR Pierre Garcon got a monster contract from Washington. First overall pick Andrew Luck will have his Stanford security...

Every NFL Franchise has it’s own pantheon of football gods. That group of players who are not only historic in terms of talent, but even more than that, these are the players who you have to talk about when you tell the story of your team. This is part of a 32 article series where I tell you who I would put among that elite group. For this, it’s Mt. Rushmore. 4 players only....
The Indianapolis Colts have signed No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck.
The quarterback's agent and uncle, Will Wilson, confirmed Thursday that the deal had been completed. Terms were not immediately released.
Colts owner Jim Irsay told reporters in late April he expected Luck's deal would be almost identical to the four-year, $22 million contract last year's top pick, Cam...
Fantasy football is back and with it comes a crop of new names such as Browns RB Trent Richardson and Colts QB Andrew Luck.
It also brings with it a bumper crop of other newbies with names like Louie’s Lizards, Buccaneer Bruisers and Show Me Da Money.
The latter group will probably get invited to join a fantasy league at work, through a friend or simply because they were the...
This series will take a look at the ever growing perception of the exaggerated "problem" of Colts' fanhood. Specifically that the Colts' fan base is fairweather and weak when compared to similar markets such as Pittsburgh, Green Bay, and Kansas City. While I find the outcry over the slightly lower rate of season ticket renewals to be very exagerrated (and way offbase...
The Indianapolis Colts signed veteran free agent running back Mewelde Moore and cut quarterback David Legree.
Moore was with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the past four seasons.
He's entering his ninth NFL season.
