Colts cut Jim Sorgi

The man best known for holding a clipboard on the sideline and chatting with Peyton Manning on the bench will be holding a clipboard on the sideline and chatting with some other quarterback on the bench in 2010, because the Indianapolis Colts have cut Jim Sorgi.

The Colts informed us today that they will be releasing Jim Sorgi at 4 p.m.,” Sorgi’s agent, Matt Brei, told the Indianapolis Star. “They gave us no reason at this point.”

Sorgi was owed a $275,000 roster bonus on the fifth day of the league year and was due to earn $1.08 million in 2010.

Sorgi was placed on injured reserve in December with a shoulder injury. The Colts now have two quarterbacks behind Manning on the depth chart, Curtis Painter and Drew Willy.

    Colts are one of those teams that if the QB goes down, the whole team goes with him.

    Do they need a reason?
    Holds an expensive clipboard.
    Can’t hold for extra points.

    Look for Jake Delhomme or Chad Pennington to be the new clip-board holder/late-season 2nd – 4th quarter Colts QB.

    They’re going to draft Tim Tebow.

    He’s not best known for holding a clipboard on the Colts sideline. He’s best known for being choked by Robert Reynolds.

    Bill Belicheck is bound to pick Sorgi up if for nothing more than 1.08 million dollars worth of intel.

    FireJerryJones & jimicos:
    You guys jumped my line.
    It would have been…..
    Does he get to keep his clipboard?
    Honestly, who knows if he can really play. Being the backup QB to Manning is less of a real job than Joe Biden has, and THAT is saying something. I wonder if Biden has a clipboard?

    Goodbye Drew Wily, hello Tim Tebow.

    A painter and a Willy?
    They MUST go get a veteran QB for this team.

    Sorgi to the Jets to back up Sanchez!

    The bloodletting continues. First, Aaron Francisco; then Raheem Brock; and now Jim Sorgi. Who’s next: Mike Hart. Or maybe even Chad Simpson. Who can tell where it will all end.
