The Indianapolis Colts announced Friday that they’ve claimed DE Rakeem Nunez-Roches off of waivers from the Chiefs and placed OLB Josh Perry on waivers.
Nunez-Roches, 24, is a former sixth-round pick out of Southern Miss by the Chiefs back in the 2014 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year rookie contract but wound up being waived and signed to the team’s practice squad.
The Chiefs eventually promoted him to their active roster and tendered him at the original-round level this offseason. However, Kansas City somewhat surprisingly waived Nunez-Roches a few weeks after he signed his restricted tender.
In 2017, Nunez-Roches appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs and recorded 24 total tackles and 0.5 of a sack.
