Colts allow several defensive players to go to free agency.

Recommended Posts

Darrel Reid, Freddie Keiaho, and Tyjuan Hagler were all allowed to be come free agents. The Keiaho one is particularly peculiar. He was a restricted free agent, and only needed to be tendered a one year deal at $1 million. Instead, they let him walk? The only linebackers on the team that have any experience are Gary Brackett and Clint Session.

 

This makes me think they might be planning on bringing Marcus Washington or Cato June back? Or perhaps Derrick Brooks? Otherwise, why let Keiaho walk? $1 million is cheap by NFL standards, even if he was just a back-up. No rookie is gonna be ready to step in by Week 1 next year. Very strange.

Don't forget they have Clint Sessions and he is not a rookie - when Hagler was out and he was starting he was all over the field and great special teams. I don't think they will bring in any free agents - I think they like who they have Sessions, Wheeler and others and will draft someone to take the place of Sessions etc when they become free agents.

 

Just my 2 cents

My guess is that the Colts LB situation looks like this on opening day

 

WLB - Clint Session

MLB - Gary Brackett

SLB - Philip Wheeler or a rookie

The Colts re-signed Keiaho:

 

After failing to retain a right of first refusal for him earlier this spring, the Indianapolis Colts have re-signed linebacker Freddie Keiaho.

 

Neither the terms nor financial details of the contract, confirmed by a league source, were available. It is believed Keiaho signed a one-year deal.

 

The Colts did not make Keiaho, scheduled to be a restricted free agent, a contract tender. That move immediately made him an unrestricted free agent. While Keiaho drew some interest in the free-agent market, and visited with Buffalo officials, he did not sign.

 

The three-year veteran from San Diego State was a third-round draft choice of the Colts in 2006. After playing his rookie season primarily on special teams, Keiaho moved into the starting lineup in 2007 and started 25 games the past two seasons.

 

He registered a career-best 105 tackles in 2008 and has averaged more than 100 tackles in two seasons as a starter. Keiaho started a career-high 14 games in 2008.

 

His starting experience aside, Keiaho could be a reserve in 2009. The Colts have already decided to move strong-side linebacker Clint Session to the weak-side spot that Keiaho occupied the past two years. At worst, Keiaho provides Indianapolis with experience and depth and the flexibility to lineup at either outside linebacker position.

 

For his career, Keiaho has 205 tackles, one-half sack, one interception, one pass defensed, two forced fumbles and two recoveries. He has appeared in 39 games and has been a starter in 25 of them.
