After seven years, two pro bowl appearances, a defensive player of the year award in 2007, a Super Bowl victory and countless injuries, the Indianapolis Colts announced today that they have severed ties with safety Bob Sanders.
One of the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL when he is healthy, Sanders has missed at least 10 regular season games in five of his seven seasons with the Colts. He played in the season opening game against Houston this past year but suffered a season ending biceps injury early in that game.
Sanders was due to make $5.5 million in 2011.
He is only 30 years old and can still make a difference on defense if he is healthy, granted that's a BIG if, but someone will most certainly take a chance on him. He will likely come cheap given that he hasn't played in a full game since September 2009.
Here are 10 teams that could give Sanders one more chance to show his stuff on the football field again.
