The Indianapolis Colts finally sign a free agent

Blogged under Big Colts News,Bloglockers,Free Agent Additions,Front Page,General Colts Chatter by admin on Sunday 22 March 2009 at 3:06 pm

The Colts have finally signed a free agent inking 26-year old linebacker Adam Seward to a 1-year deal.  Seward played in 9 games for the Panthers last season and he made 4 whole tackles.  Seward has now played in 40 games in his NFL career and he has 45 tackles.  He’s more of a special teams player but the Colts might need him a lot at linebacker as their depth will likely take some hits in free agency.

The Indianapolis Colts had a so-so draft in 2008

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,The Draft Report by admin on Thursday 19 March 2009 at 10:19 pm

The Colts picked 7 out of 9 players on offense last April.  They focused on the offensive line and may have found 2-3 future starters.  2nd rounder Mike Pollak played in 13 games (all starts) as a rookie last season and he even made a tackle.  Pollak should be a starter for a long time on the Colts.  7th rounder (C) Jamey Richard was a home run late in the draft for the Colts.  He played in 15 games (7 starts) as a rookie last season and he made a tackle and scored a TD.  Richard should also be a future starter on the interior of the O-Line.  Center Steve Justice played in 8 games (1 start) as a rookie last season and he is a diamond in the rough.  3rd rounder (OLB) Philip Wheeler was expected to help the defense in 2008 but he didn’t.  He played in all 16 games (0 starts) for the Colts last season and he only finished with 14 tackles.  The Colts drafted two TEs last season in Jacob Tamme (4th round) and Tom Santi (6th round).  Tamme played in 12 games (0 starts) for the Colts last season and he caught 3 passes for 12 yards (4.0 avg).  He also made 3 tackles and returned 1 kickoff for 11 yards.  The Colts expected more out of him last season.  Santi played in 6 games (2 starts) for the Colts last season and he caught 10 passes for 64 yards (6.4 avg) with a TD.  Like Tamme, the Colts expected more out of Santi.  DE Marcus Howard was selected in the 5th round last year by the Colts and he has some upside.  He played in 9 games (0 starts) for the Colts last season and he made 14 tackles and forced a fumble.  Howard could eventually turn into the best player the Colts drafted last April down the road.  Running back Mike Hart (6th round) could develop into a decent backup if he can just stay healthy.  Hart played in 5 games (0 starts) for the Colts last season and he carried the ball 2 times for 9 yards (4.5 ypc) and caught 1 pass for 18 yards.  WR/KR Pierre Garcon was a disappointment for the Colts in 2008.  He played in 14 games (0 starts) for the Colts last season and he caught 4 passes for 23 yards (5.8 avg).  Garcon also returned 22 kickoffs for 475 yards (21.6 avg) and 1 punt for 5 yards last season.  He also pitched in with 9 tackles.
