Sanders release was long overdue

Standard

The Indianapolis Colts released strong safety Bob Sanders after three straight injury plagued season.

Sanders release was long over due.

The seven year veteran has never played an entire season. The closest that Sanders got was 15 games in 2007 and 14 games in 2005. So, you think that Sanders would have been released after second straight injury plagued season after the conclusion of the 2009 season.

However, that didn’t happen as Polian was holding out hope that Sanders could somehow turn things around. What made Sanders worth the try is that when he was healthy he was one of the best defensive players in the National Football League.

Well it looks like Polian learned things the hard way and that could be costly as the window on the team is closing with quarterback Peyton Manning turning 35 next month.

In the end, it doesn’t matter how talented a person if they can’t stay healthy they are worthless.
