The Indianapolis Colts hope to have more production out of the RBs in 2010

The Colts hope the RBs step up in 2010 to give the offense a little more balance.  27-year old Joseph Addai will likely be the main man again for the Colts this year.  Addai has played in 15 games (all starts) for the Colts last season and he carried the ball 219 times for 828 yards (3.8 ypc) with 10 TD runs.  He also caught 51 passes for 336 yards (6.6 avg) with 3 TD grabs last year.  Addai has now played in 58 games (42 starts) in his four years with the Colts and he has carried the ball 861 times for 3,525 yards (4.1 ypc) with 34 TD carries.  He has also caught 157 passes for 1,231 yards (7.8 avg) with 9 TD grabs in his NFL career.  The Colts need Addai to get back to the kind of back he was in his first two years with the Colts.

23-year old Donald Brown showed glimpses of potential as a rookie but his season was cut short due to injuries.  Brown played in 11 games (1 start) for the Colts last season in which he carried the ball 78 times for 281 yards (3.6 ypc) with 3 TD runs.  He also caught 11 passes for 169 yards (15.4 avg) last season.  Brown could seriously push for Joseph Addai’s starting job in training camp and if nothing else he will cut into his playing time in 2010.

24-year old Mike Hart will likely have one more season to try to impress the Colts’ front office and coaching staff.  He played in 9 games (0 starts) for the Colts last season and he carried the ball 26 times for 70 yards (2.7 ypc) with 1 TD run.  Hart also caught 5 passes for 54 yards (10.8 avg) last season.  Hart has now played in 14 games (0 starts) in his two years with the Colts in which he has carried the ball 28 times for 79 yards (2.8 ypc) with 1 TD run.  He has also caught 6 passes for 72 yards (12.0 avg) in his career so far.  Hart was a very good back in college but his skills haven’t transferred to the NFL.

PROJECTED GRADE FOR THE COLTS RBs in 2010:  B

The Indianapolis Colts claim QB Tom Brandstater off waivers

The Colts have claimed 25-year old QB Tom Brandstater off waivers from the Denver Broncos.  Brandstater was a sixth round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft out of Fresno State.  He didn’t get onto the field in his rookie year with the Broncos but he was good enough to stay on the roster the whole year.  With that in mind he could win the #2 or #3 QB job for the Colts this year if he can beat out Curtis Painter, Drew Willy and Tim Hiller.
