The Indianapolis Colts made a set of roster moves on Tuesday evening. The moves included the cutting of veteran cornerback Antonio Cromartie and linebacker Sio Moore.
The Indianapolis Colts’ 2016 season is already looking to be a large disappointment for the second-straight season.
Because of an injury-riddled defense and quarterback Andrew Luck‘s lack of protection in the passing game, the Colts find themselves sitting at an overall record of 1-3 through the first quarter of the season.
At first glance, the cutting of Cromartie comes as a bit of a surprise. Cromartie had started in all four games for the Colts since signing with the team in late-August. As Bremer states above, however, Cromartie’s play in the second half last Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars was pitiful, being torched by receiver Allen Robinson on more than one occasion — likely leading to the benching.
The release of Sio Moore further supports the anti-Ryan Grigson crowd’s argument that he has done a poor job of building talent around Luck and the Colts organization. Grigson acquired Moore from the Oakland Raiders before the 2015 season in exchange for a 2016 sixth-round draft pick.
With frustration growing rapidly around the Colts’ organization and fan-base, things could get interesting for both Grigson and Pagano if the team keeps trending downward as the season progresses.
The Colts take on the Chicago Bears in Indianapolis Sunday, Oct. 9 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
