Colts release WR Blair White
It’s pretty obvious by now that the Colts house has already been swept, and now Owner Jim Irsay is just shaking the rugs.
Irsay tweeted today that the Colts have released WR Blair White, which seems to be a surprise. White accounted for 355 yards and five TD’s over 36 receptions since joining the Colts as an undrafted free agent in 2010.
While he isn’t the likes of Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald, White is a young receiver with a lot of upside. He was due a salary of only $490,000 this upcoming season, so this likely isn’t a move to clear cap space.
The former Michigan State receiver averages just under ten yards a catch thusfar in his career, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see that go up. For what it’s worth, my thoughts are that White will be picked up quickly, and turn into the receiver that he can amount to next year.
I’ve heard the number 15 is available in Denver….
