Colts Release Former Steelers TE Weslye Saunders On Thursday Following Suspension
Unsurprisingly, the Indianapolis Colts announced on Thursday that they waived tight end Weslye Saunders, who was suspended for eight games last week by the league following him testing positive for performance enhancing drugs.
Saunders, who was originally signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2011, has now more than likely played his last down in the NFL following a second suspension.
Last offseason, Saunders was suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season following him testing positive for a banned substance that was believed to be Adderall. The Steelers, however, placed the South Carolina product on the reserve/suspended list at the start of the regular before ultimately waiving him after his suspension was served.
Following his release from the Steelers, Saunders was signed by the Colts on October 16, 2012. He played in 11 games last season and recorded two receptions for 15 yards.
