Colts Sign Eight Players to Reserve/Future Contracts from Practice Squad
The Indianapolis Colts signed seven players to reserve/future contracts from their practice squad including outside linebacker Lavar Edwards, wide receiver Marcus Leak, safety Stefan McClure, cornerback Tevin Mitchel, quarterback Stephen Morris, offensive guard Adam Redmond, and wide receiver Tevaun Smith.
Of the group, Morris is perhaps the most recognizable name, as the 24 year old quarterback spent this season on both the Colts active roster and the team’s practice squad.
The 6’2″, 218 pound quarterback completed 39 of 61 throws (63.9%) for 531 passing yards, 4 touchdowns, 1 interception, and a passer rating of 106.7 through four preseason games.
Otherwise, Edwards spent 5 games on the Colts active roster–as well as time on the practice squad, recording 4 tackles and a sack.
Update (9:09 EST):
The Indianapolis Colts announced later on Monday that the team has also signed cornerback Larry Scott to a reserve/future contract.
Having been signed as an undrafted rookie out of Oregon State by the San Diego Chargers, the 5’11”, 194 pound cornerback appeared in 4 preseason games before being released as part of the team’s final 53-man roster cuts.
