Chad Kelly is back in the Colts organization.

Kelly was waived on Wednesday after his two-game suspension to open the season came to an end. He was not claimed by any of the league’s 31 other teams and the Colts announced on Thursday that they have signed the quarterback to their practice squad.

Kelly was suspended after pleading guilty to criminal trespassing charges earlier this year. He was arrested after entering a stranger’s house after leaving then-teammate Von Miller‘s Halloween party, sitting on their couch and refusing to leave. The Broncos released him a short time later.

The Colts have Brian Hoyer backing up Jacoby Brissett at quarterback on their 53-man roster.

  1. Awesome news. Can’t believe they risked him getting picked up by another team and I’m stunned he wasn’t. Now keep him on the team.

  2. People where saying they were crazy to let him go. This guy isn’t worth a roster spot. Putting up decent stats vs guys selling cell phones right now only impresses the arm chair GM.

  3. Mr. Irrelevant from the 2017 draft remains just that. When the two things you have going for you are your arrest record and having a famous relative then things aren’t going well for you.

  4. I am shocked that no one picked him up. So many teams are in need of a QB, and he’s as good or better than anyone else out there. Including you know who. I’m sure he would have been a cheap addition and a great investment in the future. As long as he has learned to clean up his act, and I think he may have, he can really help a team in need.

  5. Talent wise he would be an upgrade over Brissette but teams must be worried about handing him keys to a franchise.

  6. Hilarious how everyone was bashing the Colts yesterday and saying how great of a QB Kelly is, and now they say he is garbage because nobody picked him up.
