Colts Trade Undisclosed Draft Selection to Buffalo for Defensive Tackle
INDIANAPOLIS – For a second time in three years, the Colts have made a move just before the NFL's trading deadline.

And for a second time in three years, the move came at defensive tackle.

The Colts, winners of their last two games, on Tuesday traded an undisclosed draft selection to the Buffalo Bills for defensive tackle John McCargo, a third-year NFL veteran and former first-round draft selection.

The club also released defensive tackle LaJuan Ramsey.

McCargo (6-feet-2, 307 pounds), who played collegiately at North Carolina State, was selected by the Bills their second first-round selection in the 2006 NFL Draft. He has played in four of Buffalo's five games this season.

McCargo, who has played in 25 career games in two-plus seasons, played in all 16 games as a reserve last season, recording 2.5 sacks, breaking up four passes, forcing a fumble and recovering a fumble. He also had seven tackles for losses.

The Colts in October of 2006 acquired defensive tackle Anthony "Booger" MCFarland in a trading-deadline deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
