Sanders Days in Indy Coming to an End?

From Adam Schefter:

The Indianapolis Colts have not yet surrendered hope that Pro Bowl safety Bob Sanders will return later this season. But it’s looking doubtful that Sanders will return to Indianapolis in 2011. For starters, Sanders’ base salary balloons from $2.275 million this season to $5.5 million next season and $7 million in 2012. Beyond that, the Colts already have invested big money in another safety, Antoine Bethea, this offseason. Indianapolis is scheduled to pay Bethea $4.75 million next season and $5.2 million in 2012. The Colts’ pay model is not set up to pay two safeties two big contracts when it has so many other highly paid players. Chances are one will be going and, with Sanders’ injury history, no one can be confident he will return to Indy.
