Colts Re-Sign DB Alden Darby

The Indianapolis Colts announced Tuesday that they’ve re-signed S Alden Darby to a contract.

Darby, 24, originally signed on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State back in 2014. He lasted just a few months before he was among the Chargers roster cuts at the start of the season.

The Steelers later signed him to a future/reserve contract in January of last year, but he was once again unable to secure a spot on the 53-man roster. Darby signed on to the Saints’ practice squad at the start of the 2015 season and returned to New Orleans on a future/reserve contract.

The Saints waived him with an injury designation and he later cleared waivers and reverted to their injury reserve list before being cut loose a month ago. The Colts later signed him to a contract before waiving him on Monday.

During his four-year college career, Darby recorded 217 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles, three recoveries, six interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown and 12 pass defenses.
