Moorehead Re-Signs on Eve of Draft Weekend
Starters Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne were under contract for the upcoming season, but the team released slot receiver Brandon Stokley, who signed with Denver, and hadn't re-signed Moorehead or returns specialist Terrence Wilkins until today. Veteran Ricky Proehl, a late-season addition to the roster, is an unrestricted free agent and is expected to retire.
The Colts still have 6-foot-4 receiver John Standeford, who has primarily been on the team's practice squad since signing with the team in 2004, and he's expected to compete this year for the slot receiver role. But he has yet to catch his first regular season pass.
While the team will still likely use a first-day pick on a receiver who could immediately step into the slot role, Moorehead's signing could preserve a second-day pick that the Colts can now use to gain depth at a number of other positions on the defensive side of the ball.
Moorehead appeared in a career-high 12 games last year, his fourth in Indianapolis, and caught 8 passes for 82 yards and one touchdown. He has 23 career receptions for 265 yards.
