Indy Colts Working On 2013 No. 1 Overall Pick


The Indianapolis Colts are now officially 100 percent in rebuild mode.  Apparently targeting themselves for a run at the 2013 NFL Drafts number one overall pick.  A pick they would likely trade away for the rights to Matt Barkley.  The Colts released 14 year veteran Peyton Manning two days ago.  In case you didn’t know.  Now the waiver wire is full of former Indy Colts.

Today the team released, RB Joseph Addai, TE Dallas Clark, Melvin Bullitt, Curtis Painter, defensive captain Gary Brackett, and are trying to trade DE Dwight Freeney.  WR’s Pierre Garcon and Reggie Wayne are expected to become free agents on Tuesday as is long time center Jeff Saturday.

How many of Peyton’s former teammates will suddenly follow him to his next destination will be interesting fodder for the rumor mill.

None of these players received a press conference release.
