Indianapolis Colts Make Roster Moves


The Indianapolis Colts made moves on Tuesday to sign two players and waive one who was injured. The team picked up free agent cornerback Chance Casey and undrafted free agent guard Will Corbin. Cornerback Josh Mitchell was waived-injured, and will revert to IR if he clears waivers.

Casey had previously played for the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers, but has only seen snaps in four games during his career (all in Oakland). His stat line is just seven tackles and one defended pass for his career. He was an undrafted free agent from Baylor, where he recorded 212 tackles and 21 passes defensed.

Casey started 33 games in college and saw snaps in 43 of them. The Bears went to three bowl games in a row while he was there from 2009-2012. His freshman year he took home All-Big 12 honors in football. His sophomore year he was All-Big 12 in track as a hurdler.

Corbin was undrafted out of Appalachian State where he started 20 games for the Mountaineers. He worked out with the team during the rookie mini-camp after the draft and showed enough to earn a deal for the time being.

Mitchell was another undrafted free agent who signed with the Colts following the NFL Draft. Mitchell played 47 games at Nebraska and finished off his career with an impressive stat line. In his final year as a Cornhusker, Mitchell recorded 39 tackles, two sacks, one interception, and 13 passes defensed.

There is no word on the nature of Mitchell’s injury, but it is clear that it’s season ending. Had this been something he could come back from, Mitchell would have likely worked out an injury release deal with the Colts.

Expect the roster to churn a bit more over the next week and the Colts press on through organized team activities. On June 10th, the team will hold an open practice at Lucas Oil Stadium, giving fans their first look at the new team.
