Ex-Broncos CB Tony Carter Signs with Colts


With their extra 53-man roster spot, the Indianapolis Colts announced that the team has signed former Denver Broncos cornerback Tony Carter.

Originally signed by the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2009, Carter has also spent time with the New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings organizations. Most recently, the 5’9″, 175 pound Carter appeared in 2 games for the Broncos last season, recording 3 tackles and 1 pass deflected.

In 6 career seasons, Carter has appeared in 42 career games with 3 career starts. The 7-year veteran has 43 tackles and 3 interceptions in his career respectively.

Carter will likely be a special teams contributor right away and provide additional cornerback depth at the bottom of the position’s depth chart.

The roster move came just hours after the team promoted safety Dewey McDonald from the practice squad and waived inside linebacker Amarlo Herrera and cornerback Shaun Prater from the 53-man roster in a corresponding move.

It’s worth noting that the team also signed quarterback Matt Blanchard to their practice squad, having just released quarterback Alex Tanney.
