Colts Waive Two Players


Posted Oct 25, 2005


The Colts waived two players who from the injured reserve list on Tuesday.

The Colts 2003 third-round draft pick, Donald Strickland, and defensive end Nathaniel Adibi were both waived by the Colts on Tuesday.

Strickland, who showed promise when healthy for the Colts, landed on their injured reserve list just two weeks into the season after missing a large portion of the preseason with hamstring problems. In his three years with the Colts, he's had serious injuries every season.

During his rookie campaign out of Colorado, he missed the first half of the season with a groin injury. Last year, he was a four-game starter before landing on injured reserve with a shoulder problem.

Strickland was in the final year of a 3-year contract that had a base salary of $380,000.

Adibi, a fifth-round draft pick in 2004 by the Steelers out of Virginia Tech, was signed as a free agent in January, 2005 after bouncing between the Titans, Jaguars and Steelers in his first season. But the Colts placed him on injured reserve on August 12th with a shoulder injury.

With the depth of talent the team currently has at the defensive end position, Adibi's chances of being more than a practice squad player were highly unlikely.

Adibi was in the first year of a 3-year contract that had a base salary of $230,000 this year.
