Colts Sign S Duke Williams, Place Three On Injured Reserve Including G Jack Mewhort


The Indianapolis Colts announced Monday that they’ve signed S Duke Williams and promoted WR Devin Street to their active roster.

Williams, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bills back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.630 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $675,000 this season before being waived in recent weeks.

Buffalo, unfortunately, decided to cut him to make room for S James Ihedigbo on their active roster.

In 2016, Williams has appeared in nine games and recorded four tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense.

Mewhort, 25, was taken in the second round of the 2014 draft by the Colts. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $3,573,801 rookie contract and stands to make base salaries of $744,891 and $907,337 over the next two years.

In 2015, Mewhort appeared in 10 games for the Colts and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 22 guard out of 78 qualifying players.

Steet, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2014. He spent just over two years in Dallas before he was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

The Patriots signed Street to their practice squad at the start of the season but he lasted just a few weeks in New England. The Colts later signed him to their active roster before cutting him loose on Wednesday.

Indianapolis decided to sign him to their practice squad in recent weeks.

In 2016, Street appeared in three games and caught one pass for 20 yards receiving and no touchdowns for the Colts.
