Joey Ivie, the 6’3” 295lb defensive tackle was a 7th round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 2017 and was signed by the Colts last month as a depth player. He has played in 8 games as a pro and notched two tackles in the time.
Skai Moore is an undrafted free agent linebacker signed by the Colts in May of 2018. Moore played 10 games with the Colts, getting one career start and making 4 solo tackles. He has spent much of his time on the Colts practice squad, and despite showing promise, was unable to work his way into the active roster in a really competitive and tough position group.
Andrew Vollert, the 6’5” 243lb tight end signed with the Colts back in January after time spent as a member of the team’s practice squad. He had previously been with the Panthers, Chargers, Bengals and Cardinals.
The Colts have two remaining cuts to be made by tomorrow evening, and then they’ll have to make their final cuts down to the 53-man roster by August 31st at 4pm. This is the time when the Colts shine, so look for more moves to be taking place in the coming week as they look to add talent at their depth positions.
