Colts claim Skolnitsky

As it turns out, running back Marcus Mason wasn’t the only non-vested veteran recently waived by the Redskins who was claimed on Monday.

A league source tells us that the Colts claimed the contract of defensive tackle J.D. Skolnitsky.

Skolnitsky joined the Redskins as an undrafted free agent in 2009.  He was one of ten players cut last Thursday by the new Mike Shanahan-Bruce Allen regime.

In the offseason, players with fewer than four years of service must pass through waivers after being cut.  Players with four or more seasons instantly become free agents upon their release.
