Jets pluck lineman from Colts practice squad


A year ago at this time, any member of the Colts organization would have welcomed a one-way ticket out of town.  This year, there’s a far different vibe; the Colts arguably are the best story of the first half of the season.

But when opportunity knocks for a guy on the practice squad to join an NFL roster, it’s hard not to answer the call — even if a player is going from a great situation in Indy to the dysfunctional Jets.

The Jets have announced that guard Hayworth Hicks has been signed to the active roster, from the Colts’ practice squad.

Signed as an undrafted free agent by the Colts, he was cut after the preseason and signed to the Indy practice squad, where he spent the first nine weeks of the 2012 season.

Apart from the pay raise and the opportunity that goes along with it, Hicks may have liked his team’s recent trip to New York.  And maybe Hicks thinks the Jets are better; after all, one of the Jets’ three wins featured a 35-9 thumping of the Colts.

    Yet, that same Colts team just beat the Dolphins. You know, the team that just thumped the Jets two weeks ago. Great logic….#chuckstrong!
