Colts add veteran QB and WR

The Colts added some additional depth at quarterback by trading the the sixth round pick they got in the Winston Justice trade for Drew Stanton and a seventh round pick:

The Colts sent the 17th pick in the sixth round, acquired in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles last week, to the New York Jets. In return, they got four-year veteran QB Drew Stanton and the seventh pick in the seventh round.

I got blasted on Twitter for saying this was a good deal but the Colts essentially moved down a couple of spots to acquire Stanton.

Shortly thereafter they agreed to terms with former Titans and Rams wide receiver Donnie Avery. Avery showed tremendous upside during his rookie season before injuries curtailed his progress:

Minutes later, Colts owner Jim Irsay announced via Twitter that wide receiver Donnie Avery, a free agent from the Tennessee Titans, had agreed to terms.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
