Colts Promote OT Jared Veldheer & S Ibraheim Campbell, Among Other Moves


The Indianapolis Colts announced that they have promoted OT Jared Veldheer and S Ibraheim Campbell from their practice squad to the active roster, activated TE Noah Togiai from their injured reserve, and waived WR Marcus Johnson to make room. 

Veldheer, 33, is a former third-round pick of the Raiders back in 2010. After four years in Oakland, Veldheer signed a five-year, $35 million contract that included $10.5 million guaranteed with the Cardinals in March of 2014.

The Cardinals later traded Veldheer to the Broncos in exchange for a sixth-round pick. He made a base salary of $6.5 million for the 2018 season.

The Patriots then signed Veldheer to a one-year, $6.5 million deal but he retired a few months later. Vehldeer was claimed off of waivers by the Packers after he came out of retirement and was released by the Patriots. 

Veldheer expressed a desire to keep playing in 2020 and was set to join the Cowboys, but once again changed his mind and opted to stay retired. However, he officially signed with the Colts’ practice squad last week. 

In 2019, Veldheer last appeared for the Green Bay Packers and played in two games.
