On Tuesday, the Indianapolis Colts announced that they have signed former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Alan Baxter to their practice squad.
Baxter was originally signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Illinois on April 27, 2013. He was then signed to their Steelers practice squad after the final roster moves were made just prior to the start of the regular season. Baxter stayed on the practice squad until he was released in early October.
During the preseason, Baxter registered two sacks and nine total tackles in late game action. As a result of his solid effort against other third-teamers, many fans instantly declared that he would be the next James Harrison just as they did last season with Adrian Robinson.
