The Colts have made a couple of moves to shake up the secondary by cutting cornerback Kenneth Acker and signing safety Michael Cirino.
The Colts signed Kenneth Acker about a month ago to add a veteran presence to the corps of cornerbacks in Indianapolis.
Acker’s time with the Colts didn’t last long as he’s been cut before he’s had a chance to put on a real uniform in Indianapolis.
Acker was a pretty uninspiring signing at the time because he has never performed very well during his four year NFL career with the 49ers and Chiefs.
Indianapolis has filled Acker’s roster spot by signing undrafted rookie safety Michael Cirino.

Cirino played his college football at Division II Adams State in Colorado. The 6′ 1″ 200-pound defensive back recorded 35 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 9 pass breakups during his senior year.
He played in seven games during the 2016 season with 20 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 2 pass breakups, 1 interception, and 2 forced fumbles.
According to NFL.com, scouts were impressed by his speed and agility to go along with his good size during the NFL’s regional combines in March, and teams started to consider him as a priority undrafted free agent prospect.
Cirino impressed the Colts’ coaching staff and front office with his performance at their rookie minicamp last weekend, and they’ve now rewarded him with a roster spot.
Cirino is the second rookie minicamp tryout player to be signed in the past week after the Colts added tackle Jared Machorro to the roster yesterday.
Cirino will be competing for a spot on the 53-man roster come September in a secondary crowded with young players.
