Colts make some nondescript roster moves

At a time when it appears that the Colts’ formula for winning the “Suck of Luck” contest entails doing nothing to significantly improve a struggling franchise, the Colts can’t be accused of complete inaction.

On Tuesday, the team made some roster-churning moves.

Specifically, the Colts signed cornerback Morgan Trent.  They also signed tight end Anthony Hill from the Eagles practice squad and promoted tight end Mike McNeill their own practice squad.  The Colts also added quarterback Dan LeFevour (pictured) to the practice squad.

To create three roster spots, the Colts waived defensive back Prince Miller and defensive tackle Dan Muir, and they placed offensive guard Seth Olsen on Injured Reserve.

The addition of two tight ends likely arises from the disclosure that Dallas Clark has a “significant” leg injury.

    I’m glad they didn’t disclose the details of that injury to Clark; got to keep things close to your vest when it’s November and the win column still has a goose egg.

    I’ve been calling for these moves all season. They’ll probably win out now.

    Wow. Talk about not trying. Bad team bad ownership allowing this to go on.

    It might be bad on my part to say SuckForLuck is out in the open, would somebody tell me the Colts won’t to win I don’t think so.

    Am I the only one that doesnt think these moves are going to make the Colts better…?

    @dontrunfromme: Bad ownership? The same ownership that’s put them in the playoffs how many times? The same ownership that’s approving these deals, and could authorize a lot more if they wanted?

    It’s hardly bad ownership. It’s ownership finally realizing Peyton isn’t indestructible, and Painter is a joke in an NFL uniform.

    Goforithandle are going to tell me that painter is going to give them a better chance to win. Where is Kerry Collins? Huh. What a joke

    yeah, ok colts, Why are you guys loading up on bengals rejects. oh you are trying to tank your season but the ownership need to not be thinking andrew luck, they need to be thinking defense and running game because you don’t need a great defense to win games thats an offenses job. Great defenses win championships. look at new england yeah they got brady but what has he done scince the defenses there left. If you want to get back to winning stop playing tampa 2 and get physical you pansies. Oh and peyton will win mvp without even playing a down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Why is everyone lining up to be the Bengals?

    Peyton Manning proved pro football can be a one man team.

    The Colts already have the form filled out for their next roster move:

    Signed:
    Andrew Luck, QB

    Released:
    Curtis Painter, QB

    I heard that they waived Williard and Ben to the sewer.

    Lefevour Fever!

  15. fatguystrangler says: Nov 9, 2011 8:23 AM

    Prediction: LeFevour will start a game by the end of this season. (May not be going out on a limb with this one)

    Seriously, what’s there to lose at this point?

    @dontrunfromme – “Where is Kerry Collins?”, you ask? He’s on IR. Read a paper once in a while, dude!

    Lefevour could definitely sling it in college but that was mostly against MAC teams.
