Bob Sanders released by Colts, per Jim Irsay

Owner of the Colts, Jim Irsay, announced that former defensive player of the year, Bob Sanders, has been released by the organization.

When healthy Sanders was undoubtedly one of the best players in the league and brought a level of physicality to the Indianapolis defense that was otherwise lacking. Unfortunately staying healthy became a problem for Sanders as he had a long battle with injuries. In the last three seasons Sanders has played in nine of the Colts’ 48 regular season games.
