Colts Sign Kris Adams, Officially Waive Kevin Eagan

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.

Report: Colts Release DE Kevin Eagan after he leaves team

According to Aaron Wilson, the Indianapolis Colts have released defensive end Kevin Eagan after he reportedly left the team and is quitting football altogether. 

The 6-4, 276 pound undrafted free agent out of Endicott notched 104 tackles , 23 of them for loss while also recording 8.5 sacks his senior season, as well as forcing and recovering three fumbles and intercepting three passes.

Eagan would very likely not have made the 53-man roster, or the practice squad at that.  It is a strange situation and we do not know all the details yet, but it seems as if he is done with football.

The release (which is not official yet, by the way) does open up a roster spot.  I would be in favor of adding a veteran cornerback.
