Earlier today we reported that the Colts had released undrafted rookie DE Kevin Eagan after he left the team and reportedly is quitting football. Just a few hours later, we at least got confirmation that the Colts released him. Per the Colts’ owner Jim Irsay, the team released Eagan and signed wide receiver Kris Adams.
Adams (6-3, 194 pounds) was signed by the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent last year out of UTEP. He was signed to the Bears’ practice squad, then spent time on the St. Louis Rams’ practice squad and finally the Minnesota Vikings’ practice squad, where he finished the season.
Based on his history and some other guys ahead of him, I have a hard time seeing Adams having a different role on the Colts.
