Satele signs with Colts

Center Samson Satele, the Raiders starter for the better part of the last three seasons, has signed with the Indianapolis Colts as a free agent, the club announced.

Satele never seemed to be in Oakland’s plans after the return to zone blocking, a system he struggled with initially his first year with the Raiders.

The backup center for Oakland last year was Stefen Wisniewski. There has been no stated intention to move Wisniewski to center this season. Oakland re-signed starting guard Cooper Carlisle and also added Houston’s Mike Brisiel as a free agent, although both play right guard.

Satele is facing legal trouble in Hawaii from a recent arrest for disorderly conduct.

    The reason some of Israel could not grow food for a thousand years was that the Romans salted the land to prevent the J*ws from returning and being able to grow food.
    I comment no more one the subject at this time.

    What makes you think, even if your implausible scenario took place, that the Raiders could afford the contract of a Sean Payton?

    GM Mickey Loomis has been suspended eight games and fined $500,000
    ==========

    Why the GM?

    ==============================================

    Because when Saints owner Tom Benson was told about the Bounty program by NFL investigators in late 2010, he ordered Loomis to end it immediately. Loomis didn’t take any steps to end it, and was well aware of its continued existence.

    Raiders just moved up one draft door from 97th to 96th, with New Orleans losing their second rounder.

    with the money Colts spending on Satele, let alone Luck, they better hope that Satele is better at snapping the ball to QB than he was for his first 1+ seasons with Raiders. Wonder what he would have got paid if he didn’t get arrested.

    I would have thought that Reg would re-sign Satele before Barnes…uhh, I was wrong again.
    McKenzie must have a plan in place for center.

    *************

    Wiz=center 2012. Brisiel = backup center, starting G. Alex Parsons = compete for roster

    check price tag on Satele? AFTER ARREST

    M,

    How about the destruction of Jerusalem? Who do you blame for that. What about invading Palestine? Who do you blame for that. What about the occupation of Arab counties for more than 4 decades? Who do you blame for that?
