Colts Sign Fifth-Round Pick LB Jonathan Newsome


The Indianapolis Colts announced that they have signed their fifth-round draft pick LB Jonathan Newsome on Wednesday.

Newsome was an All-Mid-American Conference first-team selection in 2013. He appeared in 12 games during the 2013 season and totaled 64 tackles, 8.0 sacks, 11.5 tackles for loss, one interception, two forced fumbles and two passes defensed.

The Colts have some decent options at outside linebacker including Pro Bowler Robert Mathis, former first-round pick Bjoern Werner and free agent addition Erik Walden, so it appears as though his best bet at seeing playing time would be as a situational pass-rusher.
