Dan Orlovsky was set to sign with the Colts, says McClain.

Joseph Addai re-signed and Kelvin Hayden was cut, says Chappell. The Hayden move only saves the team about $1 million against the cap, so they must not think he’s deserving of the $6.105 million base salary due this season.
Jeff Saturday has leadership in his DNA, says Chappell.

Dawan Landry and Daryl Smith played together at Georgia Tech, says Ganguli.

Britt also talked about his appearance on stage at a recent Britney Spears concert, says David Climer.
