OT: Colts Fire Sale

Submitted by Geaux_Blue on March 9th, 2012 at 8:17 PM
Can anyone remember, in a non-Ditka manner, a team ditching as many notable players as the Colts have (including who they're attempting to trade)?

Release: Manning, Brackett, Clark, Addai, Bullitt
Trade Rumor: Freeman, Others

It's time to break up the band. I actually like what the Colts are doing. Gives them a chance to put together a group that can come up together. IMHO this is a good move on their part.

Pettigrew, Scheffler and Heller.  As incredibley awesome as a Dallas Clark pick up would be, there's absolutely no reason in even thinking about shelling out that kind of cash for a position we don't really have a need at.  Would be awesome though...

to me, none of these players work in a system minus Peyton Manning. They were horrible last season, now with Manning they were Pro- Bowl caliber just shows how much Peyton was worth to this team the last 14 years. I am not a Colts fan, but is has to be a sad day to be a Indy fan.

They already ripped the band aide half way off by releasing Manning, may as well rip the whole thing off and rebuild rather than another painful season.

It doesn't seem like they're putting Luck in a position for a successful rookie season. Without Wayne, Garcon and Clark he isn't going to have much to throw to.

To answer the OP...yes....other teams have had "fire sales" such as this before.  As a matter of fact my Cleveland Browns hold an annual "fire sale" to rid themselves of those pesky high draft picks so they can stock up on those oh so valuable 5th and 6th rounders.
