Colts claimed CB Neiko Thorpe (Raiders) and S Mathias Farley (Cardinals) off waivers.

Although Thorpe hasn't been very good, he gives the Colts experience in a secondary that will be minus Vontae Davis for the first month or so of the season. Thorpe has a man-coverage background, which is valued by Chuck Pagano.

Raiders waived CB Neiko Thorpe.

Thorpe was tendered as a restricted free agent at the $2.553 million level earlier this offseason, but he took a pay cut in August down to the minimum. It wasn't enough to save his job after playing 464 snaps last year.
Sep 3 - 5:50 PM

Raiders CB Neiko Thorpe has agreed to a pay cut.

Thorpe is now due just a $675K base salary. It's a big drop from his $2.5 million RFA tender, but should help Thorpe's chances of making the final 53.
Aug 3 - 5:35 PM

Raiders re-signed CB Neiko Thorpe to a one-year, $2.553 million contract.

Thorpe was a restricted free agent tendered at the second-round level. Thorpe made only two starts last season, but played 464 snaps. He was not effective, however. Thorpe turned 26 in February. Ideally, he'd be the Raiders' No. 4 cornerback.
Apr 14 - 5:45 PM

Raiders extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent CB Neiko Thorpe.

The tender is worth $2.553 million. Thorpe logged 464 snaps and started two games last season. The second-round tender suggests the Raiders expect Thorpe to compete for a role in the secondary this offseason. Oakland also extended the low tender to DE Benson Mayowa and OL Matt McCants.
Mar 5 - 10:51 AM

Raiders re-signed S Neiko Thorpe.

An exclusive rights free agent, Thorpe appeared in 14 games last season, playing 59 snaps on defense. His defense of his 53-man roster spot will center on special teams.

Raiders signed S Neiko Thorpe, LB Frank Beltre and OG Jarrod Shaw to reserve/future contracts.

Thorpe appeared in nine games for the Chiefs in 2012. He'll compete for a special-teams spot on Oakland's thin roster. Neither Beltre nor Shaw has ever appeared in an NFL game.
