Kavell Conner LB IND 6 Months
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Colts ILB Kavell Conner is on the trade block.
A starter most of the past three seasons, Conner tallied 54 tackles in 2012, but played just 326 snaps. He's an early-down thumper. It's an indication the Colts want to start Pat Angerer opposite Jerrell Freeman.

Colts ILB Kavell Conner's 2013 base salary increased from $575,000 to $630,000 after he hit escalators in his rookie deal.
Conner has started 36 games over his first three seasons after being a seventh-round pick out of Clemson in 2010. A year after racking up 104 tackles as the Colts' strong-side linebacker in 2011, Conner moved inside as the Colts transitioned to the 3-4 defense. He's proven to be strong against the run.

Kavell Conner will enter the season as the Colts' starting weak-side linebacker.
A seventh-round steal last season, Conner has already drawn comparisons to former Titans linebacker David Thornton. Thanks to an appendectomy that kept Ernie Sims out for much of August, Conner had little competition for the job. Sims will play on nickel downs once he gets back to full strength.
