    I think he would have fit in nicely with their defense during Manning's reign, as their D was built around the idea of having a lot fast, undersized players on that turf attacking with a lead. If that's still their plan going forward, he'd do well enough there in a role. If they've decided to try a difference defensive approach, not so much.

    Guyton is yet another one of those guys who flashed strong ability and then faded. I always wonder why players like that can't muster consistency.

    I thought the Pats made him inactive for all those games this past season so he'd be fresh for the 2012 season...:bricks:

    He was simply atrocious for most of the season.

    I would have been bummed if this move was made last year. But now, let's just say it's for the best.

    He was a coverage LB who couldn't cover, so I'm really not surprised. Honestly, I wouldn't bet on him to make it out of training camp on an NFL roster.

    I could see the Eagles or Falcons signing him as a weakside 43LB.

    Think about the discipline it takes to dedicate your life to staying in shape, and in fact improving your strength and conditioning.
    There are very few players in the NFL that don't have to be 100% dedicated to their workout regimen, nutritional habits, and avoidance of substances or activities that are bad for them.
    Add in the fact that most grew up dirt poor, and even the UDFAs make more money than 99% of American wage earners, and its easy to see how they can lose their edge.
    I think a guy like Guyton is easy to envision as someone who worked his way onto a roster by being focussed and dedicated and passing by other players who gave less effort. By the same token, when he takes a step backward in effort and commitment, others pass him by, and that fine line of NFL caliber vs out of the league is crossed.

    Its easy to see in any field how employees become comfortable, develop bad habits and coast. While they can turn it back on, and NFL player has guys waiting to take his job that are just as talented, and its awfully hard to ever get back the lost improvement of slacking in workouts and development.

    You have a good point. Besides his speed, which the Colts love, he also has former GT teammate Phillip Wheeler over there to throw in a good word for him.
