Colts busy deadline Deals....
Colts made 3 big deals at this years trade deal-line. The biggest one is bringing pro-bowl QB Micheal Vick to town and fills by far the biggest need the Colts had. Here is a look at the deals they made.
Colts - Oak Deal
Michael Vick - QB
Curtis Lofton - LB
Michael Huff - SS

This deal was a huge deal for the Colts as they upgraded the QB position and that was huge for us. We also made out defense a lot better getting Lofton and Huff especially since Sanders was out for the year now.
IND - CHC deal
Really the Colts love what Asamoah brought to the team, but he was buried on the depth chart and didn't see him getting much if any PT before his contract was up.
IND - TB Deal

Really this just helped the offensive line to make sure Vick is upright instead of running for his life. Might have given up just a bit more than probably wanted to here but Yanda will be here as a starter for 3 more years and is very good at what he does.
Over all the trades will help INDY now and in the future as all the guys we got are signed for multiple years (3+) so while giving up the picks was hard we didn't give them away for guys that would be here for a year and gone either.
Comments and additional functionality coming soon.
