Colts sign LB Antonio Morrison, their fourth-round pick
INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts signed rookie linebacker Antonio Morrison on Friday.
Morrison was Indy’s fourth-round draft pick out of Florida last weekend.
The 6-foot-1, 232-pound Morrison should add depth to a linebacking corps that lost starter Jerrell Freeman in free agency and former first-round pick Bjoern Werner during the offseason. Werner was released.
As a four-year starter at Florida, Morrison had 294 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one interception.
The Colts signed six of their eight draft picks before Friday’s rookie minicamp opened at the team headquarters.
