The Buzz: Former Colts Busy Last Week

ColtPower has learned that a number of former Colts were on the road last week, as well as a college prospect the team took a look at prior to the draft, working out for a variety of teams across the NFL. Get the scoop in today's edition of "The Buzz"...

Last week was a busy one for a number of Colts who had tryouts at various locations around the country. None of them were offered contracts as of Monday. By the end of the day today, clubs will have worked out more players as they try to fill depth charts due to injuries and performance problems early in the week. We'll provide an update on this week's activity later this week.

Defensive back Dexter Reid had a tryout with the Cincinnati Bengals, the only player at his position to get a look by Marvin Lewis' staff last Tuesday. Reid has also worked out for the Bills in recent weeks.

Wide receiver and returns specialist Brad Pyatt flew to Miami last week to workout for the Dolphins. Pyatt has also drawn interest in recent weeks from the Vikings.

Von Hutchins and Eric Hill were in Denver for a tryout last week as the Broncos worked out six defensive backs.

Bo Lacy was one of three offensive tackles to be invited to Detroit last Tuesday to work out for the Lions. It was his first official workout since the Bills showed interest in him in mid-September.

Prior to the draft, ColtPower revealed that the Colts had checked out former New Mexico State linebacker Jimmy Cottrell at the school's Pro Day. He worked out for the Houston Texans last week.

Raymond Walls and Von Hutchins were two of four defensive backs the Patriots evaluated last Monday.

The Giants took advantage of their bye week to evaluate more than 15 players as they try to upgrade their talent and depth at a few positions. Amongst the crowd vying for a spot was defensive back Donald Strickland. The former Colt had worked out for the Lions a few weeks ago.

Quarterback Shaun King worked out for one of his former employers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, along with five other quarterbacks, including former Steeler Tommy Maddox after they lost starter Chris Simms due to emergency spleen surgery. King had drawn interest from Cleveland in mid-September.
