In a somewhat puzzling move, the Indianapolis Colts re-signed second-year guard Matt Ulrich today. It's not puzzling in regards to Ulrich's talent level, it just raises the question why they took the chance on waiving him over the weekend in the first place. His addition could be due to the fact that Ryan Lilja
isn't expected to be ready for action this Sunday against the Giants, and the Colts really don't have any other interior linemen to back up Jeff Saturday
, Jake Scott
and Dylan Gandy
on the current roster. As of the time of this report, we haven't yet determined who has been released to make room for the three players added to the roster.
The team also added more talent to their depth chart on the defensive side of the ball today.
Former Dallas linebacker Rocky Boiman
will be joining the team along with former Titans defensive end Bo Schobel
The Colts are very familiar with both players from AFC South clashes with the Titans. Boiman spent four years with the Titans before heading to Dallas this year. He was their fourth-round pick in the 2002 draft. The Colts expect him to be an immediate and strong contributor on special teams.
Schobel was a fourth-round selection by the Titans in the 2004 draft. The 6-foot-5, 264-pound lineman out of TCU has started in two games out of thirteen appearances during his first two years in the league.

The Colts announced three roster additions today that included a second-year player they released over the weekend. The other two are brand new Colts who will add depth at key positions on the defense and should help with special teams as well.
