31-year old punter Hunter Smith has left the Colts to sign a 1-year deal with the Redskins.  Smith played in all 16 games for the Colts last season and he punted the ball 53 times for 2,345 yards (44.2 avg).  He only had 2 touchbacks (3.8%) and he pinned the opposing team inside the 20-yard line 23 times (43.4%) which are both outstanding stats.  Smith never missed a game in 10 seasons with the Colts starting all 160 of them.  In those 160 games he punted the ball 577 times for 25,040 yards (43.4 avg).  He had 61 touchbacks (10.6%) and pinned the opposition inside the 20-yard line 193 times (33.4%) in his career.  The Colts now have to think about taking a punter late in the draft tomorrow.
