Colts claim CB Arthur Maulet off waivers from Saints, release RB Christine Michael

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Jacksonville Jaguars Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts are continuing to churn their roster and have again made some roster moves in attempt to improve it. Cornerback Arthur Maulet was added to the Colts 53-man roster after the Colts put a claim in for him after he was waived by the New Orleans Saints on Friday.

Maulet (5-foot-10, 190 pounds) has played in a total of 7 games in his short career and has yet to get onto the stat sheet. As a result, the Colts subsequently released running back Christine Michael which would seem to point to Marlon Mack being back on the good side of the injury report.

Robert Turbin will also be back in Week 5 from his 4-week suspension bringing the backfield a little closer to what the coaching staff wants to see.

But, the Colts weren’t quite done yet. They had a little more housekeeping to get done today.

The Colts also flipped a couple spots on their practice squad. They released tackle Will Holden and CB Tarvarus McFadden from the 10-man unit, and signed CB Lenzy Pipkins and tackle Rees Odhiambo in order to replace them.

Pipkins was waived recently by the Colts and were able to get him back which is a good sign that Chris Ballard is a fan. Odhiambo — a former third round pick — has spent his young career with the Seattle Seahawks thus far and has played in 15 games, starting in 7.

The Colts are certainly doing their job at this point in the season as they are looking for real depth in the secondary and at tackle, which is clearly one of the most important positions for the Colts future.
