I realize the title is reading alot into a little blurb on KKFL, but there were rumors of Cato June 6' 0" moving back to Safety to provide some size/height to the Indy DB's. They are making an effort to improve the Defense and a shuffle on that side of the ball. With the short stature of the current DB's in Indy (Mike Doss 5' 10", Bob Sanders 5' 8", Nick Harper 5'10", Donald Strickland and backups David Jason 5' 8" & Joseph Jefferson 5' 10"), June offers a much needed physical presence into the Indy Secondary.The little KKFFL blurbs:
Does this mean David Thorton moves back to MLB (as Rob Morris has been released) and Gilbert Gardner (3rd Rounder) takes the WLB? I recall Pope (4th Rounder) and Garnder were drafted close and both were considered good value for their draft slot, but could both take starting roles this yr? This would (could) make the Colts LB lineup:SLB K Pope 24 yr old, 6' 1" 220 lbMLB D Thorton 26 yr old 6' 2" 230 lbWLB G Gardner 23 yr old, 6' 1" 228 lbTalk about upgrading Thorton & Gardners' value!Colts | Pope Says He's Healthy - from www.KFFL.comThu, 12 May 2005 19:53:24 -0700John Oehser, of Colts.com, reports Indianapolis Colts LB Kendyll Pope, who spent the first 11 games last season on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform list with a quadriceps injury, says the injury is now completely healed and he looks forward to competing for a starting job in 2005.Colts | Pope Moves to Strong-Side LB - from www.KFFL.comThu, 12 May 2005 19:51:46 -0700John Oehser, of Colts.com, reports Indianapolis Colts LB Kendyll Pope is expected to play strong-side linebacker this season after working on the weak side last year. "It's not too much different than the WILL (weak side)," Pope said. "You make a few calls, and you have people coming at you – guards and tackles – but it's still about chasing the ball down."
