The Colts shook up the bottom of their depth chart at wide receiver by signing Zach Pascal and releasing Kayaune Ross.
The Colts’ receiving corps lacks proven talent heading into 2018, which creates an opportunity for some surprising names to enter the mix in next month’s training camp.
Indianapolis was hoping Kayaune Ross could throw his name in the ring as a potential rotational receiver when they signed him about a month ago.
After taking a close look at Ross in the offseason program, the Colts have released Ross and will take a flier on another wide receiver in Zach Pascal.
Pascal was signed by Washington as an undrafted free agent last offseason, but he was cut before the regular season began.

Pascal showed some versatility in college with over 300 career rushing yards and a touchdown, and he also returned kicks at the collegiate level.
