Colts Promote CB Frankie Williams To Active Roster, Release TE Chase Coffman

The Indianapolis Colts announced that they’ve promoted CB Frankie Williams to their active roster and released TE Chase Coffman.

  • The Colts also signed CB Tevin Mitchel to their practice squad.

Williams, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in May. He was unfortunately among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason before later signing to their practice squad.

Williams has been on and off of the Colts’ active roster this year.

During his college career at Purdue, Williams recorded 227 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 10 interceptions, a forced fumble, two recoveries and 17 pass defenses over the course of 47 games.

Coffman, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Bengals. He lasted a little over three years in Cincinnati before he later caught on with Falcons in 2012.

Coffman spent two years with the Falcons before he signing on with the Titans as an unrestricted free agent. The Titans were flipping Coffman on and off of their active roster before waiving him in October of last year.

The Seahawks signed him to a contract towards the end of the season and later caught on with the Colts this summer. Unfortunately, the Colts cut him loose coming out of the preseason. The Colts signed him to a contract a few weeks ago.

In 2015, Coffman has appeared two games and caught eight passes for 71 yards receiving and a touchdown for the Titans and Seahawks.
