A former Indianapolis Colt is reuniting with a former General Manager of the Colts. T.J. Green tweeted Tuesday night that he has signed a deal with the Seattle Seahawks. The deal comes as no surprise with Earl Thomas finding himself on injured reserve after breaking his leg against the Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks also had try outs from Eddie Pleasant and defensive end Hau’oli Kikaha. Another reason Green could wind up in Seattle is because of the fact former Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson works in the front office. Grigson , who was the GM in Indianapolis for five seasons, was hired by the Seahawks this past June. Grigson is a former Executive of the Year and compiled a 49-31 regular-season record during his time in Indy. Green was drafted by Grigson in the second round (No. 57) during the 2016 NFL Draft. While Green’s time with the Colts was cut short, he finished with 88 tackles and three passes defendedGreen was given an injury settlement and released off injured reserve by Chris Ballard and the Colts back in September because of a hamstring issue. Colts quarterback Andrew Luck says that his surgically repaired throwing shoulder has healed well enough that he knows he can make all the throws. But his actions don’t match his words.Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young said on PTI that he has watched Luck since college and can see that Luck’s arm is not the same.“I was a season ticket holder at Stanford,” Young said. “I used to go over and watch Andrew Luck, and as a quarterback I used to watch him throw the ball and go, ‘That’s beautiful. That’s amazing.’ I haven’t seen the guy throw the ball like that. And so I have a deep appreciation for how he throws the ball. It is not being thrown that way right now. He cannot drive the football. He can’t throw it the way he used to.”According to Mike Clay of ESPN , Luck has not attempted a pass with a depth over 31 yards even once this season. During Luck’s previous five seasons, he totaled 114 pass attempts with a depth over 31 yards.Luck played 70 games in his first five seasons, so he was previously averaging 1.6 attempts per game that went 31 yards downfield or longer. To play three straight games and not even try a pass that deep once would strongly suggest that the Colts aren’t confident enough in Luck’s arm strength to trust him to throw deep.And, of course, we don’t have to speculate about what the Colts are thinking about Luck’s arm: We saw it at the end of Sunday’s loss to the Eagles. With the Colts trailing 20-16, they took over at their own 11-yard line with 39 seconds left. That’s a situation when NFL teams throw deep. But what did the Colts do? They had luck throw six consecutive short passes , then come out of the game to be replaced by Jacoby Brissett for a Hail Mary.If Luck can make deep throws, he should have thrown deep at the end of Sunday’s game. And until we see him throw deep the way we used to, it’s hard to take seriously his claims that his shoulder is as good as new.
