Found October 27, 2013 on
The Indianapolis Colts are looking to find a replacement for the future hall of famer Reggie Wayne To be honest I thought there’d be more to talk about at this point in the bye week. The roster has been at 52 for about a week now. I figured if GM Ryan Grigson was to make a move it would be during this week, looks like that won’t happen. It seems he is looking to make a viable trade and is asking around the league for a skilled receiver at a fair price. He will probably not find a good deal and most likely end up promoting a practice squad player. Or decide to pull the trigger on a risky deal. Either way we should know what happens by the trade deadline on Tuesday. Some names I have heard being tossed around in a potential trade include: Santonio Holmes, Hakeem Nicks, Josh Gordon, Vincent Jackson and Justin Blackmon. Understand that this is pure speculation and there hasn’t really been any confirmable rumors. Besides the hoopla around the empty roster spot there isn’t really much to talk about. The Colts had the week off and are heading into a Sunday night matchup against division rival Houston Texans. The Texans have a new, rookie quarterback under center and we’ll see how he’ll hold up against a, so far, impressive Colts’ defense. Should be interesting. Go Colts!
