Colts Mix up Practice Roster, Sign Nicolas Jean-Baptiste

The Colts continue make roster moves, exchanging four players yesterday in an attempt to improve their practice roster: 

The only notable one here is defensive tackle Nicolas Jean-Baptiste. Jean-Baptiste was on a lot of people’s radar before the draft, and it was a little surprising when he went undrafted. Baptiste was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Ravens, but was cut a few weeks ago. 

Ryan Grigson, or his scouts, must have a pretty good interest in both Jean-Baptiste and Tony Hills to sign them midseason, but especially Jean-Baptiste. Chigbo Anunoby didn’t wow anybody in the preseason, but he did enough to make the practice squad. It makes you wonder what Grigson has been looking at over the past few weeks to now want to sign Jean-Baptiste.
