The Indianapolis Colts were awarded former Denver Broncos quarterback Tom Brandstater today after putting in a waiver claim. Brandstater was cut last week by the Broncos. Now, he'll compete for a backup job behind Peyton Manning in Indianapolis. The former sixth-round quarterback's workload had been diminished significantly with the arrival this offseason of Tim Tebow and Brady Quinn behind starter Kyle Orton. When asked whether Brandstater fit in with the Broncos, McDaniels replied: "I didn't say it wasn't a fit, we've just got three guys who are a better fit than he is." As for the timing of the release, McDaniels expressed confidence that Brandstater will catch on somewhere else. "Tom is going to go somewhere else and have an opportunity to make a career for himself," he said. "Certainly nothing that he did that was negative or bad, it just wasn't quite as good as the other guys. That's the NFL."
