Colts release Samson Satele

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts have released starting center Samson Satele.

Satele has started 98 of the 102 games he has played in during a seven-year career that also includes stints with Oakland and Miami.

The move to release Satele isn't surprising because he was part of an interior offensive line that played poorly last season.

Cutting Satele saves the team $4 million in cap space. The Colts now have to find a new starting center to go with franchise quarterback Andrew Luck, along with their other free-agency needs.
