Colts owner Jim Irsay announced via Twitter that the team has agreed to terms with Kerry Collins.
We heard before last week’s Colts preseason game that Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky had to improve or risk the Colts bringing in a veteran quarterback. They didn’t improve and now Collins is reunited with Jim Caldwell, who coached him at Penn State.
This is a clear sign that the Colts aren't confident that Peyton Manning will be ready for Week 1. It does give Reggie Wayne, Austin Collie and Dallas Clark owners a reason to feel better because Collins is capable of holding down the fort while Manning recovers.
