Colts Sign Former Chiefs Linebacker

Former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Andy Studebaker has found a new home, inking a deal with the first place Indianapolis Colts. Studebaker confirmed the move via Twitter.AndyStudebakerChiefs

Studebaker was a sixth round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008 and joined the Chiefs later that season when he was signed off their practice squad. He spent five seasons in Kansas City, where he played in 70 games while recording 83 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two interceptions.

The Chiefs cut ties with the linebacker in April and he caught on with the Jacksonville Jaguars in August. Though Studebaker (and former Chiefs teammate Ricky Stanzi) made it through the final cuts, he was released as the Jaguars added seven waiver claims.

It was just a matter of time before Studebaker found a new gig and he gets to go to a 4-1 team that is in a perfect situation to run away with the AFC South. The Colts coaching staff got an up close view of the veteran when Indianapolis beat the Chiefs late last year 20-13.

If he is able to hang on in Indianapolis, we could see Studebaker in a huge Chiefs-Colts showdown Week 16.
