Colts down to 79 players

The Colts have started their journey to a 75-man roster on Monday morning by parting ways with 11 players.

As is often the case in the first round of cuts, the Colts haven’t made any surprising moves. The players let go were all long shots for roster spots when they joined the team and failed to change that outlook over the course of training camp.

The Colts waived cornerback Johnny Adams, cornerback Qua Cox (pictured), guard Andre Cureton, guard Marcus Hall, cornerback Kameron Jackson, wide receiver Nu’Keese Richardson, linebacker Jonathon Sharpe, safety David Sims, wide receiver Eric Thomas, wide receiver Tony Washington and fullback Cameron White.

Indianapolis is now down to 79 players, leaving them with four more moves to make to set their roster by Tuesdays deadline.

    I would be nice if the NFL expanded the roster especially with the way injuries keep piling up.
    Also it would allow teams to develop players over the long term as in MLB and Basketball.

    If Richardson is not on that list it is a farce. Maybe he is still learning the offense?

    NFL should change the amount of players they can have on the active roster on game day from 46 to 53.

    It’s long overdue the league needs to increase the final roster to 60 ‼

    and then leave the practice squad amount at 10 since they just changed it from 8.

    Did Trent change positions and his name to Nu’Keese?
