    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>Thursday afternoon in our AFC South chat, one questioner asked if the Colts could be judged as coming apart.</p> <p>They'd released Marvin Harrison and appeared as if they wouldn't reach deals with Jeff Saturday or Dominic Rhodes before free agency starts at 12:01 a.m. ET Friday morning.</p> <p>Even without all three it would be quick to dismiss the Colts, who know how to restock.</p> <p>But that scenario is out the door. The Colts have a three-year agreement with Saturday, according to John Clayton.</p> <p>That's got to be a relief for Peyton Manning, the Colts offense and Indianapolis faithful.</p> <p>Key pieces have been kept in place as the team has maintained an excellent run of regular seasons and playoff appearances.</p> <p>Even with two interior linemen drafted last year -Mike Pollak and Jamey Richard - the Colts rely a ton on Saturday as their pivot man and up-front communicator. Retaining him means continuity at a key spot&not;&not;.</p> <p>Rhodes may not rank next in line. But I think they want him back and that there won't be a big market for him.</p>
