Indianapolis has lost two players via unrestricted free agency – cornerback Jerraud Powers and quarterback Drew Stanton.
Powers joined the Colts in 2009 as a third-round draft pick. He started 34 games over his first three seasons, while opening eight contests in 2012.
Powers ended this past season on injured reserve with a toe injury. He started every career appearance and played on the club’s 2009 Super Bowl XLIV squad.
Stanton opened four of 12 career games with Detroit from 2007-11, then departed for the New York Jets. The Colts obtained Stanton in a trade with the Jets last March.
Stanton was the only veteran quarterback on the Indianapolis roster last year, but he saw no action as rookie Andrew Luck took every offensive snap.
His departure leaves the Colts with two quarterbacks, Luck and Chandler Harnish.
The Colts wish the best for Powers and Stanton.
