    Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay announced on Twitter that the team had agreed to terms with veteran quarterback Kerry Collins. The Colts have been looking for a veteran backup quarterback as insurance for Peyton Manning, who is recovering from offseason surgery on his neck and may not be ready for the start of the regular season. The four quarterbacks who have played for the Colts this summer -- Curtis Painter, Dan Orlovsky, Nate Davis, and Mike Hartline -- have combined to complete 22-of-52 passes for 309 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions for a passer rating of 36.5. Collins, 38, has spent the previous five seasons with the Tennessee Titans and had announced his intention to retire in July. The Titans used their first-round pick in 2011 on quarterback Jake Locker and signed Matt Hasselbeck to be the bridge to the Locker Era in Nashville.

    For the life of me I still can't figure out how Nate Davis could not outperform Dan Orlovsky.

    Screw they would have been much better off with Favre, plus Favre is much more fun to watch!

    Didn't he give up a bunch of money by retiring from the Titans?

    Probably sees this as his last ditch effort at a ring. Play a game or two and let Manning go for it.

    Can you really blame him? I mean, if you're going to eventually get regulated to the bench, you might as well be behind a Hall of Famer with a chance to get a ring

    Now to see WR Randy Moss comes out of retirement, I'd really enjoy seeing that.

    Sure sounds good for their opponent in week 1..... wonder who that is...hmmm:wave3:
  13. Makes sense.......Bill Polian drafted Kerry when he was the GM for the Panthers in 1995.

    I've been thinking that for the last 2 years. I'll believe it when I see it.

    This is their year...barring any serious injury. Their roster pretty much from top to bottom is better than the colts.

    Even if Favre did decide to play again he wouldn't sign with a team who would have him ride the bench once their starter is healthy.

    Also, didn't Caldwell coach at PSU when Kerry was there? I think this move is more about how innefective Painter has been and they need a backup. I don't think it spells too much for Manning as if I was worried about Manning missing time, the first guy I would go out and sign would not be Kerry Collins. If they could convince Collins to come out of retirement, why not go get a guy like Bulger.
  19. Yes. Caldwell was Collins' QB coach as a freshman in 1992.........
