Colts Staging a Competition for Spot on the Defensive Line

Pro Football Weekly says that there’s a game of survivor going on for a spot on the Colts D-Line:

Indianapolis coaches are treating their DT situation as a gridiron version of “Survivor,” as the club has stocked its roster with hoards of bodies at what was their weakest position last season. All are being given honest shots of winning starting jobs or prominent roles in the rotation. Because the club lacks any headliners at the spot, a no-holds-barred competition is being utilized to hash out the lineup. Case in point is Eric Foster, a second-year pro who started 11 games as a rookie but finds himself third string. Furthermore, touted rookie Fili Moala, who was widely viewed as an instant impact player after being drafted in the second round, is finding it much tougher to assert himself than many expected. Despite that fact that Moala is perhaps the most naturally athletic player at the position, the team has no qualms about limiting his playing time until he learns to fine-tune his raw skills.
