The Indianapolis Colts signed a linebacker to the 53-man roster after cutting four-time All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard earlier Tuesday. Leonard voiced his frustrations with how the Colts used him this season.
Leonard believed he should have played more snaps on defense this season. He’ll get the chance to play more on the field for another team. The Colts needed to find a player to step in with Leonard on his way out of Indianapolis.
