Colts sign 13 Undrafted Free Agents

Read about it from Mike Chappell here. Here is how Indy's recent additions break down by position:

WR (1 drafted, 3 undrafted)
QB (1 undrafted)
OT (1 undrafted)
OG (3 drafted)
TE (2 drafted)
RB (1 drafted, 1 undrafted)
DT (3 undrafted)
LB (1 drafted, 1 undrafted)
DE (1 drafted, 1 undrated)
DB (2 undrafted)

There have been 13 offensive additions and 9 on defense. The low number of defensive backs stands out to me. Teams obviously need a lot of DBs because there can be between 4 and 7 on the field on any given play. Polian must be temporarily satisfied with this area.

Many thought the fact that the Colts drafted only one late-round receiver implied that Marvin Harrison would be ready to go. Maybe it does, but there will definitely be a battle for the number four spot on the team.

I was glad to see we signed Jamie Silva. He could make the roster I think. He was a pretty solid safety for BC last year. He's got to be at least as good as Matt Giordano.

Can Bako really hit?

JC: Bako is a 38 year old catcher. No. He can't really hit.

Cueto is a bit of a mystery. His numbers were way out of line with his ERA (his WHIP, K/BB were beyond excellent), but last night he couldn't command his pitches, giving up several 0-2 hits. It troubles me.

Cueto troubles me too...particularly my fantasy team's ERA.
