There is never really a good time to release a player, but it’s even worse after said player just celebrated a milestone in their life.
Indianapolis Colts cornerback Roderic Teamer Jr. had just celebrated his birthday earlier this week.
On Friday, the Colts announced they were parting ways with the 24-year-old.
The former Tulane standout logged 40 tackles, one sack and one interception through seven games and six starts after he went undrafted in 2019 and picked up by the Chargers. However, before his second season could begin, Teamer was suspended for the first four games after violating the league’s policy on substance abuse.
On January 10th, he was signed to the Colts’ roster as a reserve/future contract. He was listed fourth on the left CB depth chart behind Moore, Rock Ya-Sin and Isiah Rodgers.
Just bad luck and bad timing.
