The Indianapolis Colts today signed defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin to a reserve/future contract.
Lumpkin (6-3, 300 pounds) has played in seven career NFL games. He played in 44 games for Kentucky in college (starting 29) and recorded 82 tackles, three sacks, 12.5 tackles for loss, and a fumble recovery. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Arizona Cardinals in 2011 but was released after training camp, though he spent most of the next two seasons on the practice squad. Near the end of the 2012 season, he appeared in one game with the Cardinals. Then in 2013, he signed with the Oakland Raiders and began with their practice squad before he was promoted to the active roster. He spent 2013 and 2014 with the Raiders and played in six games total while spending time on both the practice squad and the active roster, but he was released after training camp last season. In his career, he has recorded ten tackles and a sack.
Lumpkin is the eighth player signed to a reserve/future contract by the Colts so far this offseason, joining wide receiver Josh Stangby, safety Dezmen Southward, outside linebacker Eze Obiora, inside linebacker Edwin Jackson, guard Ben Heenan, guard Kitt O'Brien, and tackle Pierce Burton.
