Roster move...waived center Jake Kirkpatrick.

He had no shot at making the roster anyhow. Best of luck to him.

I guess that's why the Cowboys didn't want to take him in the trade, 'cause they knew we'd end up cutting him , and they wouldn't have to give up anything (Jenkins).

Nothing against Kirkpatrick, but I like how this regime is constantly looking to upgrade the team, even if they're PS players at best.

Also, it appears to me that players with injury concerns aren't even going to be addressed when it comes to choosing a team.

I personally believe he never had a shot. Too many new bodies on the offensive line that show better potential. Love the fact that we're always looking for better talent. Better talent Better competition Better team.

Is not every team in the league doing the same thing - such as by releasing the players that we later pick up as "improvements"?

Was the Colts prior FO working to downgrade the team?

The grass is always greener, and people always think that they can do something with a prospect that another team couldn't - yet the vast majority of fringe roster moves amount to absolutely nothing. I'm saving my applause until I see how it plays out on the field.

They sure did not make as many moves or adjustments to the roster especially offensive line via free agency or trade

We have had a lot of loyalty to players past there prime or were just not good. Sanders, hayden, addai n clark to an extent, bracket plus many more. Thats why many were let go when we began cleaning house.

We pretty much tiptoed through opportunities in the past, talking about growing our own from the draft. I have to agree that this team is turning every stone in the creek, looking for improvement.

Well if the coaches tells grigson this player has no shot to make the team. No sense to keep him around waive him and bring in somebody new and see what he has to offer

    • How could we pass on Whitehair in the 2nd round?
      It seems that you are trying to debate or argue for the sake of arguing, all on the premise that you have a different talent evaluation opinion.  Such is off topic.   The O.P. asked the question of how could they pass on Whitehair, and as I responded, the answer is obvious, that answer being because it is THEIR opinion that doing so was the right thing to do.   Your disagreeing with the evaluations of tptb within the Colts organization strays from the O.P. question as posed, and would be better served being put into a thread entitled "Questioning or disagreeing with draft prospects evaluations and drafting strategies of the Colts Organization".
    • Colts passed on making a GREAT Oline for a long time to come
      I love the prospects we have on the OL, I really like Whitehair also. But i honestly think a couple of our guys are more versatile. Green wouldnt have been my first choice in the secondary in round 2 but he was rated by some as the #2 FS in the draft and you have to love the upside. One thing is for certain with the Colts first two picks of the draft, We have our best offensive lineman by position in one  and our best athlete on the roster in the other!  I like it    
    • How could we pass on Whitehair in the 2nd round?
      -Blythe put up 29 reps at the combine. For comparison Travis Frederic...One of the better Centers in the league since being drafted put up 21.   What he lacks:  - bulk -Long Arms.This is why he gets out over his feet sometimes on the move and slips off blocks in an attempt to reach his man in my opinion. He is quick enough however. Savvy NT's with long arms could seriously give him a hard time -Dominant jolt in his hand punch...Which to me his hand punch is a bit slow. He also prefers to catch his man to often. These things have to change or I don't think he has much of a future in the NFL outside being a journeyman or sitting a big chunk of his career as a FA line   What he does well in my opinion:   -Good knee bend -Good hand placement -Strong enough to anchor

      I think i saw somthing about him having a camp invite for a work out but that's all
