The Colts claimed defensive tackle Byron Cowart off waivers Saturday, the team announced. Cowart was cut by the Patriots on Friday.

They waived defensive end Scott Patchan in a corresponding move.

Cowart, 26, entered the NFL as a fifth-round choice of New England in 2019. He spent the entire 2021 season on the reserve/PUP list.

During his time with the Patriots, Cowart appeared in 19 games with 14 starts and finished with 29 total tackles, one sack and one pass defensed.

Patchan originally signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent in May following his collegiate career at Colorado State (2020-21) and Miami (2015-19).

  1. The Patriots lost patience with the oft-injured Cowart. Hopefully his luck improves and he can show the talent that he has as a former 5 star recruit. The Colts have had success in the past picking up players cut from the Pats. To Belichick’s credit he most likely cut Cowart early so that he would have a chance to have a full training camp with another team.
