As for Eason, it concludes his Colts career, as the 2020 4th round pick finishes his short-lived Indianapolis tenure, having completed 2 of 5 passes for 40 passing yards and an interception—all late in Week 2 during a losing effort against the Los Angeles Rams.
At 6’6”, 231 pounds, the 23 year old big armed quarterback couldn’t cement the Colts 2nd-string quarterback job behind incumbent starter Carson Wentz—even despite being given ample opportunity in Wentz’s late offseason absence (recovering from foot surgery).
When cutting Eason, the Colts ran the risk that another team would claim him off waivers, and that’s exactly what just happened.
Despite his cannon of an arm, Eason remained raw and didn’t demonstrate great initial pocket poise, touch, or a feel for the offense—ultimately passed up for other quarterback options.
Nevertheless, there’s some talent and potential there—as the Colts were still interested in bringing him back to the team’s practice squad.
However, his continued development will now occur elsewhere.
