NFL Rumors: Colts Waive Kicker

The Indianapolis Colts have reportedly waived kicker Rodrigo Blankenship from their 53-man roster on Tuesday, sources told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero

The Colts hosted multiple kickers on Tuesday and are likely to sign one or two to their practice squad for further competition, Pelissero adds. 

Blankenship, 25, signed with Indianapolis as an undrafted free-agent in April, 2020. He made 45-out-of-54 career field goals as a member of the Colts, including one for 53 yards during his rookie season.

Before his NFL debut he was known for his longest field goal kick in Rose Bowl history at 55 yards, leading to an eventual 54-48 overtime victory for the Georgia Bull Dogs in 2019.
