Bob Sanders Leaves Colts

Bob Sanders, the pro bowl alumni and Safety has been released from his Indianapolis Colts contract.

In 2004 Sanders was chosen by Indianapolis in the second round draft coming from the University of Iowa.

The former pro bowl alum of 2005 and 2007 has had poor luck with injury over the last few years, playing in just 9 regular season games over a 3 year period.

There is no denying that his skills helped get him in the pro bowl twice and helped get the Colts their Super Bowl XLI victory.

Sanders turns 30 on February 24 and plans to continue on in the NFL.  As a free agent, he has the ability to sign immediately with any team that may want to pick him up.

The colts had been working with Bob Sanders to get a new deal in place before the leagues new calendar, but a deal could not be reached, ultimately leading to the decision to release him.

Sanders had already collected 25 million of the 37.5 million deal that he signed with the Colts in 2007.
