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.
