There are a lot of roster moves being made around the league right now as teams create room for undrafted free agent signings, and the Indianapolis Colts are no exception.
On Monday they cut ten players, and they added another one today as they announced that they have waived guard Isiah Cage.
The move now means that the Colts have 18 spots open for undrafted free agent signings, which likely will be announced at some point soon in advance of rookie mini-camp next weekend. Chris Ballard said last weekend that he expects to have 60-65 players in the building for rookie mini-camp, which would include draft picks, undrafted free agent signings, and tryout players. So it should come as no surprise that the Colts are clearing room on the roster for newcomers, rookies who went undrafted last weekend.
Cage originally signed with the Colts last May as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin-Eau Claire (Division III), where he played in 27 games and started 24, being named to the all-conference team three times. He was apparently injured at some point in the offseason program last year, however, as he was waived-injured in June and reverted to Indy’s injured reserve list, where he spent the entire 2016 season.
