Colts cut Ed Johnson, again

A league source tells us that the Indianapolis Colts have parted ways with defensive tackle Ed Johnson.

Johnson signed with the team as an undrafted rookie in 2007, and he started every game.  In 2008, however, he was abruptly cut after only one game, following an arrest for marijuana possession.

No one else signed him during the 2008 season, and the Colts opted to give him another chance, re-signing him in May 2009.

He was suspended by the league for the first game of the 2009 season, and he has started all four games since returning to the team.

The reason for the decision to part ways with Johnson the second time isn’t known.

    Noooo, this has to be a lie.

    He must have gotten into more trouble – Polian made it clear this was his last chance.

    Panthers, seriously. Sign him fast.

    Good luck on that.
    If the Colts cut him he’s probably looking at a four game suspension by the NFL minimum.

    I’d suggest the Bills sign him, but after holding future Hall of Famer Derek Anderson to just two completions last week, they clearly do not need any defensive help.

    This sucks. Antonio Johnson has outplayed him thus far, but the Colts can’t be too confident with the guys they have behind Ed Johnson (Dan Muir, Eric Foster and healthy scratch Fili Moala.)

    Nice ed, way to go.
    Maybe we can see what Maola is made of.
    or Bob Sanders can start playing DT?

    The also have another (John Gill) 300lb rookie on the practice squad. They could promote him and bring him into the rotation. We keep hearing of trade talks surrounding the likes of Shawn Merriman (although his charcter does not belong to a Colts locker room) and Glenn Dorsey; That Colts front office may be up to something!
