Its been a tough offseason for the Indianapolis Colts. They watched franchise QB and future hall-of-famer Peyton Manning leave to sign with the Denver Broncos, as well as firing head coach Jim Caldwell while revamping their roster so that there was close to no remaining players that were a part of the Colts mini-dynasty of the 2000s that saw them go to two Super Bowls and make the playoffs every year since 2002. Now is the beginning of what hopes to be a resemblance of that success, as they’ve signed the #1 overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, Andrew Luck, to a 4-year deal worth an estimated $22 million.  

 

The Chargers have released defensive lineman, Luis Castillo, after he missed all but one game last year due to a broken leg. He was drafted by the Chargers in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft and has been a force of the Chargers d-line, but injuries have limited his production throughout his career. Castillo has played a full 16-game season just twice in his career.. After being released by the team on March 5th, Luis went around the NFL and tired-out for other teams before deciding to sign a one-year contract with San Diego on April 4th. Its yet to be seen if this is the end for what once looked like a promising NFL career.

 

CBSSports.com’s Pete Prisco has been told by Jaguars sources there is “no consideration at all” on new contract for Maurice Jones-Drew.

 

Rams DE Robert Quinn was arrested for DWI on July 10.
