Found August 21, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Trade for Colts: Needing cornerback depth having only Jerraud Powers, Justin King, and Cassius Vaughn at cornerback, the Colts sent an undisclosed late round pick to St. Louis for Josh Gordy. Gordy played 12 games, including 9 starts, for an injury plagued Rams secondary last season, but struggled, grading out as ProFootballFocus’ 96th ranked cornerback out of 109, allowing 27 completions on 42 attempts (64.3%) for 387 yards (9.2 YPA), 2 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions, while deflecting 2 passes and committing 1 penalty.
