The NFL Draft is now officially over, and that means that it's the time of year for the post-draft cuts - players who are cut from the team in order to make room for the team to sign draft picks or more undrafted free agents. For the Colts, they waived four players today: wide receiver Kadron Boone, defensive end Gannon Conway, running back Jeff Demps, and offensive tackle Matt Hall.
Boone was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Eagles in 2014 and spent training camp with them, then spent some time on the Rams' practice squad, and then ended up with the Colts on their practice squad for the three postseason games.
Conway was initially signed by the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2014, but he was soon released and signed by the Colts. He spent camp with the Colts last year, was released, and then signed to the practice squad before the AFC Championship game.
Demps, an Olympic sprinter, played in two games with the Buccaneers in 2013, spent part the 2014 season on their practice squad, was released, signed to the Colts' practice squad, was soon released, and then ended up signing a reserve/futures contract with Indy earlier this year.
Hall was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Vikings in 2014 but he was released and signed by the Colts in time for training camp. He spent the 2014 season on injured reserve.
All four of these roster moves likely were made with the intent of signing undrafted free agents. The Colts will hold their rookie minicamp this weekend, and while not everyone who participates will be signed, waiving these four players today clears up four more spots for potential undrafted free agent signings, bringing the team's total up to 15 possible spots to be filled by undrafted rookies.
