Colts waived CBs Chris Rucker, Antonio Fenelus, Cameron Chism, and Terrence Johnson, Ss Matt Merletti and David Caldwell, LB Mike Balogun, WR Quan Cosby, RB Alvester Alexander, OG Jason Foster, and P Brian Stahovich.

Rucker was a sixth-round pick last year out of Michigan State. There are no guarantees for holdovers in new regimes, and rookie GM Ryan Grigson is effectively cleaning house in the Indy secondary.

Coach Jim Caldwell says the Colts will keep sixth-round pick Chris Rucker at cornerback.

Rucker has safety size at 6'1/195, but Caldwell is adamant that he'll stay at his natural position. "He is definitely a corner," said Caldwell. "Within our scheme, within our system, we think he fits. He has good size. He has speed. He has the aggressiveness it takes." Rucker will compete for time in sub-packages behind Jerraud Powers and Kelvin Hayden.

Colts selected Michigan State CB Chris Rucker with the No. 188 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Rucker is a fine football player with the ability to play either corner or safety, but we're surprised he was drafted by the Colts. He pleaded guilty to assault and battery in 2010, and within a year was back in the police blotter with a DUI. He's a big-time character red flag. We presume Bill Polian deemed him worth a sixth-round risk, but Rucker should be on a zero-tolerance plan in Indy.
