    Reported on the Profootballtalk rumormill, the Bucs have signed Cato June. Terms of the deal have yet to be announced.

    Stokley, Rhodes, Harper, and now June. No money to replace them, limited draft picks (Indy traded their 2nd round pick to Tampa in the Booger McFarland deal).

    Make no mistake, the Colts are in decline.

    this hurts, but the Colts decline is overrated.

    Stokley barely played last year, Harper was banged up and isn't great anymore, and they already have their replacement for Rhodes.

    but this is a legit loss I think.

    This is a big loss. The cap situation is bad enough, nevermind the players leaving. After you restructure everyone but the cleaning staff, you are going to have just enough money to sign your draft picks... After you take care of Freeney that is.

    The colts are underestimating being the sb champs. Next season is going to surprise a lot of colts mans imo. No shock really.

    Let's hope the Pats do draft a lb at 24 or 28 to scoop the lb up before the colts.

    Joseph Addai

    middle of the road RB's are replaceable. remember how big of a loss Edgerrin James was?

    Wow. Just wow.
    Ok-watch out in the draft. Are they expecting their offense to carry them or who are they expecting to pick up mid season?

    Losing Cato June automatically makes their defense better, doesn't it?

    They'll just sign another 195 pound college defensive back to play linebacker.

    you're double or triple counting the same things here, or just repeating yourself.

    The Colts having a bad salary cap situation, plus losing a few average players, plus them only having enough money to sign their draft picks, is all the same thing.

    as I said above, this is the only significant loss for the Colts this offseason. all those other guys didn't contribute that much to their SB run, or are replaceable

    in the same way that Maroney is the replacement for Dillon. he'll go from being a part time rookie to a full time 2nd year oplayer.

    I dunno about that he had 142 tackles last year, and at least 100 in the past 3 years, I think that probably means he can tackle a little.

    Addai got more carries than Rhodes..so how is he replacing Rhodes?

    Hes replacing him as a full time starter maybe but not in a roster spot. Addai came there to replace James last year and they let Rhodes get some work in and not rush the rookie in.

    It takes chemistry and team dynamics to win superbowls. It is not just based on talent. The loses the colts have suffered will effect them. Colts fans can deny it all they like. They peaked and now starts the decline. The defense is going to be lack luster next year. Im going to go on the proof over 16 games, which showed them to have some pretty serious issues before they lost a soul.

    watch him play man..theres a reason hes not considered a top LB with all the picks and tackles. He misses a lot of tackles and gets run over a lot..like Beisel in many ways. The reason their run D blew most of season was because they couldn't tackle anyone..and June was probably 1 of the biggest targets against run

    Is the apparent ambivalence to Cato June's leaving via FA from Colts fans a true indication of his level of play? Or just wishful thinking that he'll be easily replaced?

    Either way, the overblown "Colts are done" talk is just that, overblown. But at the same time, anyone who thinks they will somehow be an improved team going into '07 season is probably smoking on something, too (Prisco).

    And most importantly, the Patriots have improved dramatically and we haven't even hit the draft yet.

    I disagree the Colts are "done"-it's only March and they still have the draft and probably some monies for an emergency pick-up. I'd also assume they have a plan. Miguel,what's your take on these cuts?
