Not familiar enough with Silberman Hazel and Moore. Will have to see.

Figure we might cut a QB, DB or 2 and a WR plus an OL to make room ?

This is surprising. Is Bond going to remain at C or are there other plans

Like the Matt Jones move. Should be a good compliment to Gore.

Really surprised that we've cut Schwenke. Thought we'd take every decent player we could get on the O-Line. Would like to know the reasoning for this.

I seen word that the Colts can't put Kelly on the IR-Designated to return until tomorrow. Allegedly the Colts will resign Schwenke after that. 

OT Andrew Wylie and DT Joey Nbu (Redskins) have reportedly been signed to the PS

Man, all I can say is Ballard is truly backing his talk with the actions he said he would. For the first time in a long time, I think there will be some depth. Some real depth. We are a way before putting it all together, but I see his moves and he is going to be a fine GM.

colts placed TE Erik Swoope on IR ending his season. Resigned TE Brandon Williams

Also the additions of DT Joey Mbu, OT Andrew Wylie and WR Krishawn Hogan to the PS to bring it to 10. 

Later today when Zach Banner and Stephen Morris clear waivers *fingers crossed* they will have to cut someone to make room.

Yeah, depth was always the biggest issue with Grigson. Especially when the #1 guy at the position went down.
