Colts dump Mr. Irrelevant

As the Indianapolis Colts continue to churn the bottom of their roster, they’ve dropped the guy taken at the very bottom of the 2012 NFL draft.

Yes, quarterback Chandler Harnish has been waived.

Whether Mr. Irrelevant becomes relevant depends first on whether anyone claims him on waivers.  If not, he becomes a free agent, able to sign with any team’s roster or practice squad.

Harnish said on the final day of the draft that he was planning to sign with the Chargers before the Colts picked him.  It’ll be interesting to see if the Chargers come calling now.

The Colts also waived outside linebacker Jerry Brown, and the Colts signed former Steelers tight end Weslye Saunders, who played for Colts interim head coach/offensive coordinator Bruce Arians in Pittsburgh.
