Colts sign Larry Asante to fill Joe Lefeged’s spot

The Colts have filled their depth chart at safety, without any indication why there was a vacancy there to begin with.

Owner Jim Irsay just tweeted out word that they had signed safety Larry Asante.

Asante was in camp with the Colts this summer but was released in final cuts. He replaced Joe Lefeged, who was released without much fanfare last night.

It’s the kind of transaction that doesn’t earn much notice, and probably wouldn’t have gained any if not for Lefeged’s offseason arrest. Otherwise, they’re churning backup safeties and special teamers.
