Does anyone think he will ever have an impact in Indy?

He signed with them after going undrafted in the Supplemental draft.

Wayne is a FA after this year. Maybe their thinking is to let Wayne go, allow Stokley to be the # 2 and let Crosby be the # 3?!?!

It is doubtful that Reggie will resign unless he's willing to take less than market value to stay. With all the money the Colts have tied up in Marv and Peyton they won't have the money to give him what he's worth and still field a competative team, if they thought they could give people what they desrerve and still compete, they would resign Edge long term instead of franchising him and letting him go next year possibly.

They also have two other wr's they like very much in Troy Walters and Aaron Moorehead. Out of those two, Moorehead is the better fit to take Reggie's place. Walters is more of a slot guy and return man.

They may plan to move Stokely to the #2 but I would say that would depend on whether or not he shows he can stay healthy this year.

Roscoe is typical Colts kinda move. See undervalued talent that they think they can sign and develope. If he shows the kinda talent that peole were raving about when he started his college career and continues to improve, he has a shot, but they...and me, really like Moorehead too. Decent size and has the ability to run good routes and go get a ball. They may plan to use him on kick off returns too. A coupla years ago they signed Brad Pyatt in the same kinda situation and he's avg like 25 yds on ko returns but has missed 16 games in 2 years. Maybe that's their plan with Rosco.

Obviously the Colts convinced him he has a chance to play somewhere in the next year or two as he had three other teams, including the Chiefs trying to sign him and Kansas City would have given him a better chance to play sooner. Shows he has intelligence, looking at the big picture and taking Manning and a crowded wr corp instead of the quick cnhance at PT in Aarow Head. Also knows he has a chance to learn from the preeminent wr combo in the league. You could do worse if you know you're a project.

On a side note, Roscoe was also drafted to play baseball a coupla years ago but chose football at Clemson.

He has potential, but it will take him a while to develop, he has been out of football for too long.

"On a side note, Roscoe was also drafted to play baseball a coupla years ago but chose football at Clemson."

Actually he played both. Its too bad b/c if he would have picked one or the other things may have been different. He was injured playing baseball I believe and it all but cost him both his careers. I think he is one to keep an eye on. He shouldnt make an impact this year but he was the #1 wr out of highschool. So he very well could be a player in a year or 2. Also while we're on the topic of South Carolina highschool could have beens. Keep your eyes on RB Derek Watson and RB Demetris Summers. Watson is with the Bucs now and Gruden has mentioned being happy with him. Spurrier just kicked Summers off the team this summer and he still has a year to be eligable, he was a 1st round talent so just an FYI.
