The Indianapolis Colts announced Wednesday that they’ve released veteran DL Kendall Langford with a failed physical designation.
“Kendall is well respected amongst everyone in the organization and a great ambassador of the horseshoe,” said Colts General Manager Chris Ballard. “We wish him all the best moving forward.”
“Kendall emerged as a team leader shortly after we signed him in 2015,” said Head Coach Chuck Pagano. “He gave everything he had on and off the field and we are grateful for his contributions. He is a great family man and will be successful in his future career.”
Langford, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2008. He spent four years in Miami and played three seasons for the Rams before signing a four-year, $17.2 million contract with the Colts back in 2015.
Langford was set to make base salaries of $4 million (2017) and $4.2 million (2018) over the remainder of the contract.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Langford will free up $4 million of available cap space while creating $250,000 in dead money.
In 2016, Langford appeared in eight games for the Colts and recorded 10 tackles, no sacks, a fumble recovery and two pass defenses.
