We have signed LB Malik Jefferson.— Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) May 5, 2021
Jefferson was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round of 2018 NFL Draft. He has since played for the Browns in 2019, the Chargers between 2019-2020 and most recently the Tennessee Titans in 2020. Jefferson, 6’2 and 240lbs, has played in 34 career games and has produced three tackles and 13 stops on special teams.
Jefferson will be added to the Colts linebacking group that is quite deep. The Colts have 2 starters set in stone with Darius Leonard and Bobby Okereke but the third linebacking spot is open for competition. Jefferson can compete for the third linebacker role on the team or at least push those in front of him to perform.
