The Indianapolis Colts announced on Tuesday that the team signed linebacker Tyrell Adams to the team’s practice squad and waived tight end Darrell Daniels in a corresponding move.

Originally signed by the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2015, the well-traveled Adams has played with 7 different other NFL organizations—including the Colts back in 2018 for a brief stint.

The 7-year linebacker has 163 tackles (99 solo), 5 tackles for loss, 4 passes defensed, 4 forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and 2.0 sacks during 44 career games (14 starts).

With fellow linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back/ankle) being recently placed on injured reserve—and a candidate to be shut down for the season, having just suffered a setback, Adams’ addition may be to help bolster the Colts emergency linebacker depth.
