Colts again waive Donye' McCleskey, sign Terrell Skinner UPDATE

I kind of feel a little sorry for Donye' McCleskey. He was signed as a rookie free agent immediately after the draft only to get cut just prior to training camp. He was then re-signed two days ago after the team waived David Caldwell. Today, he was cut AGAIN, and the Colts used his roster spot to sign former Vikings corner Terrell Skinner.

Skinner played his college ball at Maryland where he made 67 tackles and emerged as a leader for the Terps defense. At 6'3, 214 pounds, he is one big body at safety. He also has a 36' vertical leap. Gonna go out on the limb here... I think he can dunk a basketball. 

Skinner last tried out for the Eagles on Aug. 15th. He was initially recruited to Maryland as a wide receiver. He was selected to play in the Senior Bowl this past year. Skinner went undrafted in the 2010 NFL Draft, but was signed by the Vikings as a collegiate free agent.

The Colts also placed Jamie Silva on IR. He tore his ACL against the 49ers in the preseason opener.

[UPDATE]: McClesky was placed on the waived-injured list. This means if no one claims him, he goes to IR.
