2008 Starting Roster Prediction: June

The month before training camp is a time when most quality free agents are signed and normally all of the necessary cuts have been made.  It’s a great time to make roster projections.  The team won’t change too much from now until July 24th.  The only major change that could happen would be signing Roosevelt Colvin, which now looks likely.  Colvin has been brought in for a physical, and he owns a house in Geist.  If the Colts and Colvin can work out a contract, Colvin will be wearing blue next year.

I’m assuming Colvin will be signed for now, so here is what the Colts roster will look like against the Chicago Bears on September 7th, 2008.

    I’d drop Gijon for Jaime Silva and Giguere for Curtis Johnson it’s about SPECIAL TEAMS COVERAGE.

    I think Giguere could be a gunner or at least what Silva would do. For Johnson, the addition of Colvin pushes him completely off of the roster, both for defense and special teams.
