Colts swap out one tackle for another

Colts coach Chuck Pagano wants to change the perception that his team isn’t tough enough and he has a new offensive tackle in camp to help with that effort.

The Colts announced on Wednesday that they have signed tackle Arturo Uzdavinis to their 90-man roster. Tackle Jerry Ugokwe was waived to make room for Uzdavinis.

Uzdavinis was a member of the Vikings for a few days earlier this month, but was dropped by the team in favor of a cornerback on July 27. He has also spent time with the Jaguars and Lions earlier in the offseason and had stints with the Jags, Bears and Texans last year.

Anthony Castonzo and Le’Raven Clark have been working as the starting tackles for the Colts this summer, something that won’t change with a new arrival who will be vying for a reserve role that could lead to his first regular season appearance.

  1. I think the Vikings dropping this guy is symptomatic of a team that doesn’t place enough value on the offensive line. They have plenty of CB’s but their Oline was a running joke in the NFL last year. I hope this guy works out for Indy. He got claimed by Mn and wasn’t there long enough to unpack a travel bag.

  2. Colts are his sixth team since signing in 2016 as an undrafted free agent. Has never played a down in the NFL, but has signed contracts then cut 5 times. No wonder the Colts are high on him – they returned last years o-line that let Luck get sacked 41 times
