Recently waived Indianapolis Colts player claimed by division rival | Sporting News

The Indianapolis Colts waived center Jack Anderson from the roster Thursday, and he was claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars the following day.

The Colts made a handful of roster moves following the conclusion of minicamp and the offseason workout program. After signing two undrafted free agent rookies who attended minicamp on a tryout basis, corresponding moves needed to be made.

One of them was letting Anderson hit the waiver wire.

Anderson was mostly listed as a center during his time with the Colts, but he may have some guard experience as well.

The Colts have veteran Ryan Kelly as the starter in the final year of his current contract, and they drafted Tanor Bortolini in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft. Bortolini has the potential to take over the center position in 2025.

The Colts also have Danny Pinter returning on a one-year deal after initially hitting free agency, and he’s proven to be a better center than guard during his career.

Suffice it to say, Anderson was a luxury for the Colts, and he now gets a chance to crack the roster in Duval.
