Colts Again Waive Starting DT Ed Johnson

The Indy Star reports that the Colts have again waived starting DT Ed Johnson

The Indianapolis Colts waived starting defensive tackle Ed Johnson for unknown reasons Tuesday in a roster move that will deprive an improving defense of arguably its best run-stuffing lineman. The team declined comment, but Johnson’s name appeared on the league waiver wire. A team spokesman said any comment on roster moves would be made today. It’s the latest in a series of setbacks for the talented-but-troubled Johnson. The third-year pro had been given a second chance this season after a 2008 release, prompted by an arrest for marijuana possession and speeding. The team cut him after one regular-season game last year. The release likely means the end of his career and is a major blow for an unbeaten team playing its best defense.
