Colts Cut Darren Evans Again, Sign DE Mario Addison

Well, I guess Bill Polian was blowing smoke this past Monday when he said Darren Evans was going to get some carries this weekend against the Panthers. Indianapolis waived the former Mr. Football and Indiana high school star Tuesday.

The Colts also claimed defensive end Mario Addison off waivers. Addison was recently with the Bears.

At 6'3, 254 pounds, Addison is undersized, but he showcased significant pass-rushing ability for the Bears during their training camp last August. We have video of Addison after the jump. He went undrafted in 2011 out of Troy, the same school that produced New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora and Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware.

It seems like the Bears cut him because they just have an abundance of talent along the defensive line.

Back to Evans, it would appear that, with his release, the likelihood of Joseph Addai playing this Sunday just increased. Delone Carter and Donald Brown are the only other healthy RBs on the roster. Ryan Mahaffey is also on the roster, but he's a fullback.
