As the Colts continue to remake their franchise around quarterback Andrew Luck, they continue to filter away parts from the previous administration.

Among their moves Saturday, they released tackle Ben Ijalana and defensive tackle Drake Nevis, their second- and third-round picks in the 2011 Draft.

That leaves first-rounder Anthony Castonzo as the lone remaining member of Bill Polian’s final draft, (giving him one more thing in common with former Panthers General Manager Marty Hurney).

The Colts also waived outside linebacker Daniel Adongo (the former rugby star), safety Larry Asante, center Thomas Austin, cornerback Marshay Green, defensive end Lawrence Guy, quarterback Chandler Harnish, fullback Robert Hughes, tight end Dominique Jones, wide receiver Jeremy Kelley, linebacker Josh McNary,  cornerback Sheldon Price, wide receiver Jabin Sambrano, wide receiver Lanear Sampson, linebacker Monte Simmons, tackle Bradley Sowell, nose tackle Martin Tevaseu and tackle Lee Ziemba. They also waived-injured tackle Emmett Cleary, linebacker Shawn Loiseau and cornerback Daxton Swanson.

  1. OMG are the Indianapolis Colts crazy Chandler Harnisch in my opinion is one of the most talented young backup quarterbacks in the league Buffalo Green Bay San Francisco the Jets they all will be lining up for this kid because he has real potential can understand what makes some of the guys running these teams tick!

  2. Thanks for reminding me how the Polians tried to ruin the Colts. Why Bill Polian is still held in high regard and his opinion sought after is beyond me. I actually like Bill better as a talking head on TV, just keep anyone with the Polian name away from making NFL personnel decisions.
