Colts sign Loucheiz Purifoy

Loucheiz Purifoy, Rashad Greene AP

For much of the offseason, it looked like former Florida cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy would be drafted somewhere in the middle rounds after flashing plenty of athletic ability during his time with the Gators.

Then came word that Purifoy had been stopped by police with narcotics in his possession. Purifoy wasn’t arrested because he reportedly agreed to serve as a police informant, but that arrangement led to an investigation and Purifoy already had a red flag after a 2013 marijuana arrest so it wasn’t a great surprise that he wound up undrafted.

He won’t go unsigned, however. The Colts announced that they have signed Purifoy as a free agent, adding him to the group of undrafted rookies they announced over the weekend.

Purifoy is unpolished, but was athletic enough to play some wide receiver in Gainesville and the raw materials are intriguing. If Purifoy can stay out of trouble, he could help the Colts on special teams at the very least.

    Marijuana charges are a waste of time….. Glad the NFL is more forgiving than most.

    He better make the most of this chance… his off-field habits and game tape dont exactly scream in his favor….

    Better keep him away from Irsay.

    The Indiana state police have already put out APB’s… As they are sure he will do something illegal once he gets there

    Louchiez covertly signed with the Jaguars before signing with Indy and will be feeding them confidential information throughout training camp.

    As I said in the article about undrafted talent with ‘off field problems’, he was going to get signed regardless.

    Marijuana arrests are B.S. in general, but certainly can’t blame any of the 32 teams for passing on the kid.

    Now go prove the haters wrong, Lou.

    Dallas must not of known about his arrest history. Or surely they would of drafted him in the early rounds.
