Indianapolis Colts Claim Former Bengals Cornerback Korey Lindsey

When one former Bengals cornerback was released (Morgan Trent from the Jaguars), another former Bengals cornerback found a home. According to his agent Scott Smith, the Indianapolis Colts claimed Korey Lindsey off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. The Colts waived safety Micah Pellerin to make room for Lindsey.

Lindsey was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL draft. After failing to make the cut on the team's 53-man roster, Lindsey signed onto the Arizona Cardinals practice squad, where he spent most of his rookie season. Arizona released him on Wednesday after the Cardinals signed rookie free agent wide receiver Gino Crump. Revenge of the Birds, SB Nation's Arizona Cardinals blog, called Lindsey's release a "numbers game", who have ten cornerbacks on their offseason roster as of this posting.

Though it probably doesn't help his cause to make the 53-man roster, Lindsey is joining a team that now has ten corners on their offseason roster.
