Indianapolis Colts sign 4th-round pick Antonio Morrison
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts signed rookie linebacker Antonio Morrison on Friday.
Morrison was Indy's fourth-round draft pick out of Florida last weekend.
The 6-foot-1, 232-pound Morrison should add depth to a linebacking corps that lost starter Jerrell Freeman in free agency and former first-round pick Bjoern Werner during the offseason. Werner was released.
As a four-year starter at Florida, Morrison had 294 tackles, 4 1/2 sacks, forced three fumbles, one fumble recovery and one interception.
The Colts signed six of their eight draft picks before Friday's rookie minicamp opened at the team headquarters.
