COLTS’ VETERAN OFFENSIVE LINEMAN, RYAN DIEM, ANNOUNCED HIS RETIREMENT FROM THE NFL
Tue, 27 Mar 2012 11:30 AM EDT

The Colts’ restoration project kicked into top gear again when 2 independent agents landed with new teams. Indianapolis traded for a backup quarterback, added a free agent receiver and said bye to a longtime offensive lineman.

The most recent agitation started when Ryan Diem, the longtime anchor on the right side of Indy’s offensive line announced his retirement. Las Vegas odds.

“It’s been a heck of a ride… Time for a new chapter. I am retiring! “Diem recounted after meeting with team owner Jim Irsay.
Issues were just getting started.

The Colts had lost Pro Bowl center Jeff Sat., who agreed to a 2 year contract with Green Bay, and tight end Jacob Tamme, who agreed to a new contract with Denver. The move will bring together Tamme with Peyton Manning, who was released March 7 and signed with the Broncos.

Indy still was not finished, trading a 6th-round draft pick purchased lately from Philadelphia to the Jets to get Drew Stanton and New York’s 7th-round pick. Stanton confirmed a 1-year, $1.25 million deal earlier in the month to back up Mark Sanchez, but lost that position when the Jets eventually mature a deal for Tim Tebow, the Broncos’ prior starter.

Prior to the windstorm finished, the Colts announced they concluded to a deal with former Rams and Titans receiver Donnie Avery.  Avery has started twenty-eight games in 3 NFL seasons after being taken by St. Louis in the 2nd round of the 2008 draft.

Irsay cleaned out the front office, replaced Coach Jim Caldwell with Chuck Pagano and got rid of the majority of Caldwell’s assistants — all in January.

The biggest moves have come in just the past few weeks with the releasing of Manning and the successive call to cut running back Joseph Addai, defensive captains Gary Brackett and Melvin Bullitt, tight end Dallas Clark and backup quarterback Curtis Painter. Indy already had lost starting receiver Pierre Garcon to Washington in free agency, a list Tamme and Saturday joined last Friday. Vegas odds.

“We expect Jeff Sat the best, I wanted him to work for crew full time still he would have liked to go at it another year he’s as good of a person as it becomes,” Irsay announced after the deal was approved.

With Saturday and Diem now gone, it’s likely the Colts may open next season with at least 7 new starters on offense.

Diem started 150 games in 11 seasons with the Colts, usually at right tackle. During that time, Diem turned into a preferred of Manning. The bond was so tight that when Manning took less cash to remain with the Colts last July, the team used its reserves to bring back Diem and Addai, 2 players Manning idea would be vital to the Colts’ success.

Today, none is with the team.

The change commenced after Manning missed the whole 2011 season following a collection of neck surgeries, Indy went a league-awful 2-14 and wound up with the No. 1 all round draft pick. It is anticipated to take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with that selection.

The Colts took Diem as a 4th-round draft pick in 2001. The Northern Illinois alum started 8ht games his rookie season at right guard, then became an acceptable at right tackle until moving back inside last season.
