INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A position-by-position breakdown of the Indianapolis Colts’ 53-player roster. It’s subject to change as the team will look for selective upgrades from the more than 1,800 players who were released Saturday.
As it now stands, the roster includes 11 rookies – that’s 20 percent – and all eight draft picks. The Colts also are in position to extend their NFL-best active streak of 19 consecutive seasons with at least one undrafted rookie making the roster, providing nothing changes when the opening-day roster crystallizes.
Three undrafted rookies survived Saturday’s frenzy: punter Rigoberto Sanchez, center Deyshawn Bond (Warren Central High School) and tight end Darrell Daniels.
