Colts trade for S Ronald Martin

Recommended Posts

Dont know Martin, but CB must have his eye on a long snapper somewhere else. Secondary depth is huge once injuries start to happen.

So I knew this but forgot, backup ILB Luke Rhodes had been trying out/helping out at  LS. So he is now the full time LS. Obviously he will still be a key guy on special teams but not the same role as last year.

Nice. Well at least that is covered. Still unsure what they see in Martin, but I trust the coaches.

We just announced the signing of S Earl Wolff IV formerly of Eagles and Jags. He missed all of 2015 and 2016 with an injury (knee). Washington signed him to a reserve/futures contract in January. 

In essence we,

➡️ Removed an extra punter from the roster. 

➡️ Moved an ILB to LS

➡️ Replaced a LS with a S

➡️ Replaced a P with a S

says a lot about the injuries in the D backfield .

Yes.....Geathers to a settlement?

As of now, no.

It was already announced at the beginning of training camp that he would start the season on the PUP list. He can't be removed until Week 6. By Week 8 they have to either activate him to the 53 or put him on IR. 

Once he goes on IR, they can negotiate an injury settlement. But I can't see that actually happening until after the season when they have to decide if he is making any progress on his recovery

Wait and see trade here I think. Be interesting to see how it plays out.
