Colts dump Weslye Saunders, sign rugby player

Last week, the NFL suspended Colts tight end Weslye Saunders eight games.  This week, the Colts decided to get rid of Saunders for the other eight.

The Colts have announced that Saunders has been waived.  He played in 11 games for the Colts last season, starting four times and catching two passes.

The team filled his roster spot by signing linebacker Daniel Adongo (pictured).  He’s a six-five, 257-pound Kenyan national.  Adongo most recently played for the Southern Kings of Super 15 Rugby.

He has extensive rugby experience, but no apparent football experience.

Saunders, with an eight-game suspension looming for his second violation of the PED policy, possibly will have no future football experience, at least not in the NFL.

    The traces of Bruce Arians are slowly exiting this team.

    In other news, Colts owner Jim Irsay tweets, they will sign a professional ping pong player from China and an Olympic synchronized swimmer from Sweden.

    Super 15…if you think NFL road games are brutal, imagine flying halfway around the planet (South Africa to New Zealand, or vice-versa) and trying to play. Road teams win about 20 percent of the time in that league.

    For any Mule fan to say another franchise is dumpster diving when signing a freeagent is pretty funny after this disgrace of a franchise sign this non football player.
