Days after the Colts cut their longtime offensive captain, Peyton Manning, they’ve cut their longtime defensive captain, Gary Brackett, as well.
Brackett, who was limited to just one game last year because of a shoulder injury, has been released, according to ESPN’s John Clayton.
The move is not a surprise after Colts owner Jim Irsay hinted this week that Manning wouldn’t be the last veteran player released.
Brackett, who will turn 32 in May, has played his entire career with the Colts. He now becomes an unrestricted free agent.
