It does seem that way. Who knows, maybe they think that a late 1st (which is what we'd expect from the Colts) is the best return they could get, so they pulled the trigger.
What's interesting is their division doesn't seem to be any good, meaning they have at least a remote chance of making the playoffs, then they go and ship one of their best players off...
